Vacation points is a fancy way of saying you don’t have the money to afford the vacation you really want, but by selling your soul to whatever company has the least painful and degrading slavery package in the form of spam, advertisements, frozen steaks sent via post programs, March of Dimes gift packets, or VFW collectible coin deals, you might get to go on that cruise you always dreamed about every five years if you collect enough points to win. Leisuretime Promotions seems aimed at the Jimmy Buffet crossed with Donald Trump demographic, judging by its colour scheme and overall tone of haughty “you deserve it” lines and Margaritaville-esque visions of beaches, vague sillhouettes of people who may be having fun or who may just be clipart cutouts, and the video testimonials that I actually couldn’t get to work on my system. I assume they’re filled with happy people satisfied they made the right choice by throwing their hard earned cash at a company designed around spending money. Not that I’m saying that’s wrong. For some it’s the principle of spending money to make money that allows one to achieve a position where one can afford hefty vacation packages such as this company offers.
Clearly though, the demographic is also not much interested in movies, writing, or the occasional snarky post about how bad Los Angeles drivers are. Not to worry, though. It’s simply a reminder to all you pleasant people out there who are reading, that no matter where you are, you’re there. Who needs a vacation when you’re living the life of leisure already?
