Current and historical promotions

This is a thread for reporting details of promotions in the Finnair+ program.

The purpose of the wiki is to keep a repository of current and historical promotions. This works best if all details are given in a post of the thread. Once such a post is made, edit the wiki and add a short description of promo in headline-style, with a link to the post that holds the detailed information. (You can create such a link by right-clicking the post-number and copy link location).
Do not link to the promo itself from the Wiki, as the promo page is likely to disappear once the promo ended and such link will die, leaving the wiki sans historical info.

Feel free to discuss alterations to the format in the thread below.

Do not delete historical posts.

This is probably a known fare but I thought I‘d share it nonetheless:

exARN / GOT / OSL to SFO and possibly LAX too for ~1800€

It is possible to route via LHR on BA or via HEL-SFO or via HEL-JFK/ORD/LAX-SFO on AY.

JFK-SFO is AA on the A321 transcon config with a flat bed.

Not the best deal probably but quite good nonetheless.

I managed also to open jaw and book from GOT but back to OSL.

Fare basis is INN0T8S6. There is a 6 day minimum stay requirement.

There is a leaderboard for that point challenge. Two participators started off with 180k points each the first day. 😂

Thanks for a reminder. Would have forgotten to register. Of course, I got to meet the traditional "Error occurred. Please refresh the page and try again.". Wouldn't even feel like on AY's website without it.

I can see the two 180k leaders, but no lkrt with 5000 points. I assume you have doubled it quite quickly.

Not sure...

From the "Official competition rules":

6. How to participate in the competition
You can take part in the Gold membership draw by registering to the extra points campaign on the Finnair website. To win the point prize, you must earn the most Finnair Plus award points from participating partners between 21 November and 31 December 2018. Award point compensations, transfers or points earned from airlines are not eligible for the campaign.

Thanks for this, I would have missed it! Especially handy since I already am booked to get 100k miles before the end of the year. Does this mean I get an intercontinental award flight in exchange for a few clicks?

I don't think this has been mentioned here yet (?), but there is a raffle for those renting from Herz this year (or if you already have rented from them) https://www.finnair.com/gb/gb/hertz-100-raffle

"Hertz Celebrates its 100th anniversary with a Finnair Plus award point raffle! Enter now for a chance to win 100,000 points.To participate, you just need to register on this page and earn points by renting a car from Hertz during 2018. You can participate by renting a car by 31 December. If you have already rented a car from Hertz this year, you only need to register on this page"
....
Entry period
The entry period is 1–31 December 2018. The participants must register to the campaign before 31 December 2018.
...
Prizes
100 000 Finnair Polus award points will be drawn among all those who have participated in the campaign during the campaign period 1–31 December 2018. If the winner is a Hertz Gold Plus Rewards member, the winner will also win an upgrade to the next Hertz Gold Plus Rewards tier for 2019. (Tier upgrades are not available for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle.)

Got that promo in email now.
Probably the biggest hurdle will be a correct registration of AY number for Hertz reservation as usual
