Amazon is getting in on alien fever this year by offering Ring camera users $1 million if they are able to capture proof of extraterrestrials on their devices.
Aliens have been all over the news lately, with governments and military officials admitting that some of the wild conspiracy theories over the last few years are actually true.
Subsequently, Ring cameras could end up being a source of truth when it comes to extraterrestrials, and Amazon wants to make sure they reward those at the front lines of discovering life on other planets.
Amazon Offers Reward for Ring Camera Footage of Aliens
Announced in a press release, Amazon is legitimately offering $1 million for “unaltered scientific evidence” of extraterrestrial life captured on Ring cameras from around the US.
“With new sightings and further evidence that life forms might exist beyond Earth's atmosphere, there's a possibility that Extraterrestrial activity could be happening right outside your front door.” – Ring spokesperson
Ring, an Amazon-owned security company, is also offering a $500 gift card to the most elaborate fake image of aliens that they receive, so if you're keen to experiment with Photoshop, you could get a little extra off your Prime Day haul.
Why Is Amazon Offering a Reward for Proof of Aliens?
As one of the most successful ecommerce businesses in the world, Amazon obviously has the resources to cover a $1 million reward in the event a Ring camera user somehow claims the prize.
There's not much to worry about on Amazon's side, though, as even the most advanced cameras on military planes haven't caught images that could be considered undeniable proof.

It's safe to assume that Amazon is merely looking for a bit of good will to go alongside its Prime Day celebration, which kicks off this week. After all, the press release announcing the reward was titled Halloween Mission Engaged and made mention of a “mothership.”
Considering Ring is still shaking off the PR nightmare of settling with the FTC over a lack of proper privacy protections for users, a little alien fun is likely a welcomed departure from planet Amazon.
