Update 6/9/21: MPX has increased this offer to 37 miles per dollar. They’ve also increased the maximum number of bonus miles you can earn to 19,733, so you’ll max this out when spending $533.32. That’s a fantastic offer because, as noted in the original post below, that’s on top of the 1x-2x MileagePlus miles you earn depending on which United card you pay with, cashback through a portal and points earned through Radisson Rewards.
Thanks to jeph36 in the comments for the heads up about this increased rate.

8,25019,733 bonus miles.
This is a fairly regular offer in the MPX app, although it’s been a few weeks since the last version of the offer expired.
The offer can be found in the United Visa Rewards section of the app and so is only available if you have a Chase United card. To link the offer to your United card, tap on ‘United Visa Rewards’ and wait until the blurred images turn into images you can see. You might need to scroll down the offers until the Radisson offer appears. Once you can see the offer, it’s linked to your United card – there’s no need to click an actual link to register for the promotion.
With a maximum 8,250 bonus miles on offer, you’ll max this out when spending $330 on a stay. It’s only valid on one transaction, so if you have two or more Radisson stays before the end of September it’d be best to take advantage of this offer on the more expensive stay unless they’re both for $330 or more.
Note that in order to earn the 25x bonus miles you have to pay with your United card. That’s in addition to the regular earnings on your United card; some United cards offer 2x miles on hotel or travel purchases, so you’ll earn a total of 26x, 26.5x or 27x on the first $330 of your Radisson stay. Seeing as you’re booking directly with Radisson, you’ll also earn at least 20x Radisson Rewards points for the stay (more if you have status). Taking into account your United and Radisson earnings along with shopping portal cashback, the rewards and cashback you earn could easily be valued at ~50%.
