Best Way to Extend Miles

Hi, I have 16K points that expire the end of July. I usually buy useless magazines for these situations. I don't see any mags with Radisson. What I have found is as follows:

Spend $7 to get 1000 Radisson points.
Take 2K points from Radission and get 200 UA miles.

At this point I think spending $7 is the best alternative, but wanted to post here to see if there were any surveys to get get/extend points or something else that someone here may be aware of that isn't apparent to me, as I don't follow them..

Thanks

I think the buying points is likely going to be your best/cheapest bet.

No Cat. 2 hotels you can book an award at that you might need to stay at? Or perhaps a Cat. 6 on a Points + Cash rate?

Just going to do the $7 rather than staying somewhere that I don't really need to at this point. Thanks,

What about transfers

If we are both gold or above can we transfer points to each other?
