BlackBerry tempts iPhone users with cash back offer to switch to Passport

The BlackBerry Passport has turned out to be an impressive device that’s unfortunately not performing quite so well in the market seeing as a new deal has been revealed for it by the Canadian company. As part of its new Trade-Up Program, the manufacturer is offering up to $550 to Passport buyers who are ready to surrender their iPhone.

Valid from December 1 to February 13, this promotion will work in such a way that up to $400 will be offered back on an iPhone, while an additional $150 will be provided by the maker itself, taking the maximum amount to $550. This payment on the BlackBerry Passport will be returned by the company in the form of a Visa prepaid card.
