Getting status points on this sale.
About status points. The offer is really incredible. With points purchasing you can be very close to the premium status in the Finnair Plus loyalty program and with it in the Oneworld alliance. The status that really gives a lot of preferences and benefits is the Gold status in Finnair Plus (equal to Oneworld Sapphire). To get it you need 80 000 status points.
For example, if you purchase 150,000 award points, you will get 150,000 bonus points and 75,000 status points. You only have to get 5,000 status points to Gold. And status points in the Finnair Plus program can be earned from award points by converting them at a ratio of 3:1 with a small fee (10€).
That is, by converting 15,000 regular award points into status points, you will get the Gold status!
Buy or not?
The question, is it necessary to buy points at all now, in the current difficult situation with air travel? It’s up to you to decide. If you do not plan to use them in the near future, then perhaps, this sale can be missed. There will be others.
