An untradeable RuneScape Bond is a special type of RuneScape Bond that has already been traded. It can either be redeemed for select account-related or out-of-game benefits - see the table below - or converted to a tradeable RuneScape Bond for a small fee.

Players use the 'Convert Bonds' button in the manage bonds interface in order to convert their RuneScape Bonds. A player can convert multiple untradeable RuneScape Bonds at once, should they wish. The conversion fee is 10% of a RuneScape Bond's value on the Grand Exchange at the time of conversion.
