10 million Nectar points to the first person to find alien life in outer space

Press release   •   Nov 08, 2012 10:38 GMT

Nectar, the UK’s largest loyalty programme is today offering 10 million Nectar points to anyone who can prove that they are the first to discover evidence of alien life beyond Earth.* This is in direct response to the BBC’s concerns over the need to offer a suitable prize for signs of alien life as part of TV scientist, Brian Cox’s, ‘Stargazing Live’ show!

Speaking light-heartedly about his conversation with BBC bosses, Brian highlighted book tokens or Nectar points as potential prizes for anyone who discovers alien life.

In response to this, Nectar is offering 10 million Nectar points to the first person who can prove to have discovered evidence of sentient alien life beyond Earth at anytime during Nectar’s 10th birthday year (01 September 2012 – 31 August 2013).

Nectar, through its partner eBay is also offering triple Nectar points for the whole of this weekend (10 & 11 November) on the purchase of telescopes and binoculars, to help aid the hunt for alien life.

James Frost, Marketing Director of Nectar said: “This is probably one of our biggest ever offers. Although we’re the largest loyalty programme, we’re interested in new ways to expand our offering – so if alien life is discovered, we’d be happy to look at linking up with some new intergalactic partners.”
