If they're standard UA vouchers, then they can be booked for anyone even though they're issued in your name only. I don't think you can combine them (at least I personally don't know how), but they often can be sold/exchanged here on DDF for ~85%, more or less, depending on value, expiry, etc.

can the first ticket be a miles ticket or it has to be cash?
They both have to be revenue flights as far as I know

Completely YMMV, and moreso among individual agents than people IME.

In theory it shouldn't, because each leg has its buckets of availability, and there's not competing with another airline that flies direct for the fare. But in practice I believe there have been rare occasions where a leg is available for award redemption only as part of a multi-leg trip.
actually, this happens often w/Delta because they used married segment logic. If you live in a hub, this can work out great.

Another useful case where hidden city ticketing can save on domestic award flights is AA's reduced mileage awards. If you can find availability with American (and that's a huge IF) and you have their Citi/Aviator card, then you could theoretically book a reduced mileage saver award that includes a segment from JFK-LAX for a reduced price if the final destination was MRY (and just get off at LAX if that was your final destination). I haven't tried this one myself, but I don't see a reason why it couldn't work

Is there any real difference (throttling wise) between old grandfathered plan and new one?

Not to keep piling on, but for anyone reading, the #1 rule of travel hacking is never to call the airline, hotel, card company, etc when there's a deal. In almost every case (especially with a good deal such as this), there's just no practical reason to do so.

Looking to still buy AA @ 85% OBO. Any denomination

If the missed connection was due to the airlines fault (such as incoming flight was delayed) then the airline would re-book you onto the next available flight.
If the missed connection was not due to the airlines fault (such as a long line at passport control that you got stuck in), the airline is technically not required to re-book you onto the next flight.
The later has happened to me @ JFK w/Delta and I was asked to pay a  $50 fee to be put on the next flight

According to Frequent Miler, there are some hotels that are "selling" points for .506 cents each (C+P trick), a little bit lower than the usual 0.57-0.6

http://frequentmiler.boardingarea.com/2017/03/13/buy-ihg-points-0-506-cents/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Frequent%20Miler%20%28Instant%29

With 0.57 - a 60,000/night hotel would be $342. At 0.506, it would be $303.60, a savings of $38.40. Not bad!
Has anyone been able to do this recently, or was this a limited time promo? Can't get points lower than .57-.6 from my searches
