There Is Now A Group Coupon For Space Travel. What.

$15,000 off. Now that’s a discount.

As someone who wakes up to no less than 10 group coupon-related emails every morning, I honestly thought I’d seen it all. From plastic surgery, to sky diving, to Lasik eye surgery, I am constantly baffled by the procedures and experiences people are willing to have discounted. But I’m sorry, space travel?

This deal on Tripalertz.com offers $15,000 off “an epic journey to space” (I smell a frat bro copywriter…), with a required deposit of $20,000. According to the site, this is what’s included in the $80,000 fee:

  • Five-night stay @ Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort during training & preparation
  • $5,000 TripCash to first 25 buyers (for on-board refreshments? Freeze-dried ice cream?)
  • Medical evaluation and screening (oh, good)
  • Cancellation insurance policy (needing more description here…)
  • Personalized high definition DVD recorded by onboard cameras along with stellar mementos (again, can I see a footnote for “stellar mementos”?)
  • Admiration from all earth’s creatures. (alright, that’s the kicker for me. I’m in.)

Just wish there was some kind of extraterrestrial sighting guarantee…
