MEGACENTER Welcomes the Cattle Call

Ahhh, Southwest Airlines. The company that keeps a smile on your face while treating you like a cow queued up for a hot poking. The airline where "first class" means exit row and a shitload of drink coupons.

"Cattle call" is a term of endearment. Honestly. I love Southwest Airlines. Their fares are often low enough to talk me out of making the four-hour drive to Vegas. They make the day trip for the Californian or Arizonan possible. Heck, because of them, I've yet to road trip across the Mojave by myself because a round trip flight usually costs little more than gas (and probably a lot less in the long-run wear and tear of my vehicle).

But perhaps their best perk? Abusing their Rapid Rewards program by redeeming my hour-long, round trips to Vegas towards free flights across the country.

And now that abuse is even easier with MEGACENTER being the first to offer points towards flights on Southwest. No specifics yet on how many gondoliers your ears have to bleed through until you qualify to take the family to Orlando, but it's great to see the kind of cross-marketing that's been present in cookie cutter chain hotels for years now. Here's the press release.

Will we see more of this in the future? Virgin Atlantic and Wynn Resorts encouraging the stronger pound sterling to make its way to our struggling city? C'mon Steve, you and Rich are BFFs after all

LoL if you do get enough points saved to take your family somewhere don't come to Orlando. There's way better places to spend your money.

Virgin Atlantic only flies to Gatwick. British Airways will be starting up flights from Heathrow soon, and that's where most the air traffic really is.
