It’s important they get Bronze because they’ll be wanting to get a free check in bag with Finnair tomorrow. When is Bronze status considered valid? In the “progress to next tier” section it’s listed as Bronze achieved but like I said, the card hasn’t changed colour.

thanks all

Any Oneworld Sapphire or Emerald gets the free bag.
Are they flying on a Finnair "Economy Light" Fare (which would make much sense in TP earnings)? If not, they will get a free checked bag flying a regular economy ticket without being recognized as bronze/OWR.
