All Aboard BlackBerry 10 Port-A-Thon Rewards Information
A lot of users who took part in the All Aboard BlackBerry 10 Port-a-thon have been asking about the rewards process.
The response to All Aboard Port-A-Thon was so overwhelming that it has taken RIM a little longer than anticipated to process all the information and ensure everyone is getting the correct rewards.
Emails to redeem your rewards are scheduled to go out this Tuesday, January 15 to all who are eligible for the rewards.
- Monetary reward emails will come from Milestone firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Device reward emails will be sent from email@example.com and BlackBerryPlayBookOffer@tmgideas.com.
- Trip reward emails will be sent from HRG and/or A Thousand Words Marketing.
- Finally, the winner of the draw for the trip and devices will come from BlackBerryDeveloperProgram@rim.com.
Please ensure you have all these emails whitelisted so they don’t end up in your spam/junk folder.
In order to thank users for their understanding while they worked through the reward logistics, they are making three valuable modifications:
- They have extended the app submission reward eligibility window from 12:00 pm EST on December 14thto 8:00 am on December 16th. This means that if you didn’t qualify for monetary rewards originally due to the timing of your app submission, you may qualify now!
- They are extending the deadline for approvals of changes to apps that are eligible to January15th .
- As announced at the Port-A-Thon, RIM committed 100 additional BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha testing devices to those who submitted 5 or more apps during the event. Winners for this draw will also be contacted.
