News in brief:
Luxury Travel Diary auctions
The Luxury Travel Diary site dropped me a line about another wave of its auctions closing this week.
Here is two nights in Paris which ends this week, as is this one for two nights in Leeds Castle (which is in Kent). This offer for four nights in the Maldives is probably the plushest deal at present. Not everything will work for you, either in terms of location, length or dates, but you’ll probably find something of interest if you poke around!
3,000 free miles for joining Virgin Flying Club
Whilst I cover Virgin Flying Club on Head for Points, you may not be a member because you never thought it was relevant to you.
This offer may change your mind. Via the Virgin Red app, you will receive 3,000 miles for joining Flying Club.
You don’t need to do anything. The miles will be automatically dropped in your account within 7 days.
3,000 miles won’t get you far. However, once you have your account open, you are better placed to pick some miles via the generous credit card sign-up bonus, opening an ISA, buying wine, Heathrow Rewards, Tesco Clubcard conversions or American Express Membership Rewards.
The offer expires on 17th September.

Avios / LOVEtheatre bonus extended
Finally, lovetheatre.com, the new Avios theatre ticketing partner, has extended its offer of double Avios points on all tickets booked until 30th September. It doesn’t matter when the event takes place.
Double Avios means 6 Avios per £1 spent. As well as working with all West End theatres, it also sells tickets for selected off-West End venues including Shakespeare’s Globe, National Theatre, Barbican Centre, Menier Chocolate Factory and Royal Court, as well as key regional theatres. LOVEtheatre is also an agent for attractions including the Tower of London, National Gallery, London Eye, Madame Tussauds, The View from the Shard and Buckingham Palace.
