BlackBerry offers up to $550 trade
Summary: BlackBerry has a few Black Friday deals worth considering, including a way to trade in your iPhone and receive bonus value if you purchase a Passport.
I wrote about the new BlackBerry Black Friday specials yesterday and then BlackBerry announced the rest of the holiday deal.
The $200 Passport discount ends on 30 November and then starting on 1 December you will be able to 'trade-up' your iPhone 4S, 5, 5C, 5S, or 6 for a Passport. The press release states that a new iPhone 6 could be worth up to $400 and then an additional $150 ($200 CAD) is offered for Passport purchases.
The BlackBerry trade up page shows what each model of iPhone may be worth with offers ranging from $300 to $550 ($600 CAD). These prices are actually much better than other carrier and manufacturer trade-ins we have seen before. The convenience of working directly with BlackBerry may make this an attractive options for those looking to switch to a Passport.
The red and white BlackBerry Passport models are available to pre-order now, priced at $699 and $599, respectively. The $499 black Passport is now shown as being out of stock, likely due to the launch of the Black Friday sale yesterday.
