Before I transfer my 60k SPG points I wanted to clarify a few things.  Ive never used US before but IIRC they sometimes black out dates on their partners, is this correct?
So for flights to Israel is this better than the usual deal of transferring to ANA?

They are a Star Alliance member so anything that can be booked with AC or CO can be booked with them.
So would I able to combine these miles with my CO miles?

"Only miles converted with an activity ('eligible activity date') date between March 11, 2012 and March 31, 2012 will earn a bonus."

40K gets you 1.875 miles per point and anything remaining under 60K will earn 1.5 miles per point, which is still better than 1 or 1.25 but not as great as 1.875.

Buying/selling miles isn't allowed, but in my dreams, if it were, I'd pay $1200 for 100,000 us miles.

= $0.024 per SPG point, or by applying @ http://www.dansdeals.com/go/starwood/ you'd be saving 2.4% on everything spent.
