It's OK if domestic US redemptions are your thing.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

How do you figure BA worth 1.42+?

You're not allowed to sell on DDF, but you're (apparently) allowed to say who you sell to. Heck, there's a banner on DD homepage of a guy who buys, though I doubt he pays 1.42 for BA...

So transfer to BA, then to Iberia, and avoid fuel surcharges? (assuming you fly IB metal)

I see that TLV to MAD would be 25k (if you find lowest availability) and around $110 on IB. Regular cost is around $500 on IB, or $440 w/ a stopover in IST.
So w/ the bonus, it's 18k MR + $110, giving a value (if you ignore the miles you accumulate on the flight and purchase) of 2.1 cpm. Not too great, but an option.

Forget that. When I checked on BA, it was 25k + $55 to fly the same route, so a better deal. But there was less availability.
Either way, s/t for those in Israel to consider.
