2) Does it ever make sense to do a sort of sticker run to earn some? If I can find the rest of the miles that I need for 10000 miles before March 1, and it costs less than $160 ai would it then be a worthwhile investment?

Thanks.
It also depends what airport you fly out of. During the last 12 months of departing from O'hare as a Platinum, my upgrade success has only been around 25%. With Gold it would have been less. It wouldn't be nice to take an extra trip or two to obtain more stickers if they don't let you use them anyway.
