That is exactly what ReserveASpotInHeaven.com offers to do for you. For the price of $12.79 you can reserve your place in Heaven. This gets you the “Essential Travel Kit”. However, if you would like to you can buy the “All Access Travel Kit” for only $15.95. They provide a 100% guarantee or your money back. Is this a scam, or an evil genius kind of legal way to make money? Currently the guarantee has not been needed as no one has reserved their spot in heaven and then been able to prove that they did not arrive after they passed on.
They receive a lot of hate mail over the past year since they opened in 2007. They have been called anti-religious, crooks, and atheists. All of these are disregarded in their website. They clearly state that they are not mocking any religion at all.
On the other hand they receive plenty of support. Either from people who actually believe that this will work, or from people who appreciate a good joke.
They state that they are from The Board of Heavenly Officials, apparently the only governing body in Heaven. And that this is the easiest way to secure eternal happiness with minimal effort.
They use clever marketing techniques. One is that “Spaces are limited”. While this may work well when selling tickets to the local concert, I am not too sure how effective this is to sell passes straight into Heaven itself. Another way they market is by temptation. “It is now possible to enjoy your sin filled life and buy your way into Heaven.” Can you imagine that? Every sin that you commit is ignored by buying your way into heaven.
The Essential Travel Kit gives you four items. First is a Certificate of Reservation that is registered in “The Book of Light”. You also will receive a First Class Ticket into Heaven. “Why walk when you can fly?” There is also the Laminated Official Heaven Identification Card. It looks like the liberals are right; a National ID Card is not that bad of an idea. And finally you will also receive a Heaven 101 mini information guide. This is for your convenience to prevent culture shock.
The All Access Travel Kit gives you a laminated VIP pass to let you in the Land of Milk and Honey and the Thug Mansion. I’ve never known of that one. It must be the mansion for all those that needed to buy this product in order to go to the attic instead of the basement.
Shipping is a mere two dollars for those that live inside of the United States. Also they offer group discounts for parties of ten or more.

They kindly recommend that your frame your valuable documents. This way your friends will want to buy one to. Maybe convincing a friend to buy into this will send you down. Who knows really?
As much of a religious mockery this sounds like, it has been done in the past. Hundreds of years ago before the Catholic Reformation people used to pay the Catholic Church money for indulgences in order to pay for their sins. Thus securing their spot in Heaven, much like a service ReserveASpotInHeaven.com is providing.It is recommended that you frame your documentsIt is now possible to enjoy your sin filled life and buy your way into HeavenThe Catholic Church used to have a similar practice.ReserveASpotInHeaven.com
