Alcor members never die, they just get very, very cold. One of the few cryonic suspension services that currently has members in bio-stasis, Alcor will sell you immortality, liquid nitrogen-style for $125,000 ($50,000 if you opt for neuropreservation instead of the whole-body treatment). Their monthly magazine, "Cryonics" is available for $10 per year.

"I believe - based purely on technical considerations - that a cryonically suspended patient has a reasonable chance of being restored to health at some time in the future. I think it might be decades or centuries before the needed technology is developed, but this is a matter of small consequence to a patient suspended at liquid nitrogen temperature ... I base my optimism on the assumption that radically new and powerful technologies will be devalued to
manipulate atomic structures."
