Ratio wise, sure. But its not every day that 20k SPG earns 30K US.
This is great deal, especially with US raising the price of their miles so even with 100% bonus they're still pricey.
But with the Grand Slam allowing miles to come on the cheap and being able to transfer to other accounts, don't see the point in transferring the full amount unless you have a specific award in mind and have tons of SPG that need to become US now.

I checked their availability to Israel (at least from CLV to TLV) and their availability at the discount rate (80k) seems to be more limited than CO typically is.
Anyone have experience with booking tix to/from Israel with them compared to either AC or CO?

They are a Star Alliance member so anything that can be booked with AC or CO can be booked with them.

Does their website show all of it, or do you have to call cs to tell them what you're seeing on other websites?

Thanks, great to know.

Do you think that what CO shows is typically the most (coach) availability, or would calling them sometimes open up more doors not found on their website?

just reading up on that and seems like it doesnt but the question is if you want to merge the accounts it seems it has to exactly the same inofo. however somebody wrote you can transfer but i doubt that is for free even within same household
Its free, just get  ready to "prove" any changes in name/address

Anyway the language is funny, "Dividend Miles members will earn only one bonus when they transfer hotel points into Dividend Miles during the promotion."
Are we sure we know what that line is trying to say?
Anyone have any contacts with USAir to try to get clarification on this?

Just speculation but last years promo didn't have this term which would suggest this being more restrictive.

so the issue is if you can only do this once or multiple times?
but everybody agrees this is a great deal?

No matter how you value your Starpoints it's a pretty good deal.

If you value SPG at 1.8 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 0.96 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
If you value SPG at 2.0 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 1.07 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
If you value SPG at 2.2 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 1.17 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
If you value SPG at 2.4 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 1.28 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
If you value SPG at 2.6 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 1.39 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
If you value SPG at 2.8 cpp then it's like getting US miles at 1.49 cpm if you transfer in 20K blocks.
