Radisson Rewards points for United MileagePlus® award miles 50% bonus

For a limited time only, redeem your Radisson Rewards points for United MileagePlus® award miles and get to your destination faster. Receive 50% more miles when you redeem your points from October 9 through November 26, 2019.

Currently 2000 to 200 miles now will be 2000 = 300 miles.

Is this a good conversion rate? I know Radisson points are better used in Europe, however, now most places are charging 70K points for 1 night stay.

Never mind, it seems to be a horrible conversion rate even with the bonus.

But my offer stated there would be a 30% bonus of both the standard conversion and the 50% bonus if one signed up for the promo with United MP. So, it would be 390 MP miles per 2K RR points (instead of the standard 200 MP miles).

Having an internal debate myself. I have 135k points and could convert 100k -> 15k UA miles. I've had these points for years as I rarely travel to cities where I want to stay at Radisson Blu properties. I hate just holding points for years but the math does not seem to support conversion.

Bloggers value Radisson points @.004 so 100k = $400. I used to value UA miles @.02 so 15k = $300 but with the recent deval I now value UA miles at .01 = $150.

Of course they could be worth a lot more if I actually use them. At 70k per night I have almost enough points for 2 nights at a decent Radisson Blu, which would likely be valued at $350/nt in Rekjavik (summer) or maybe more in Helsinki.

So I'm gonna pass and gamble against a massive deval by Radisson...
