Idea: BlackBerry World Gift Cards


  • Brad F

    blackberry should just keep copying everyone else and dont actually do anything innovative, that will help them in the long run.

    Just drop the price of the Z10 to $349 and start selling a few!

    At $499 with Koodo that thing can’ copete with the S3 or N4!

    IMO I think if you have an app store you should offer gifting. Not so crazy about the actual card but virtually yes

  • Steve Coleman

    This would have made Christmas gift buying so much easier the last few years. I don’t have a BB or Playbook but I have family that does. I will be first to buy a fistful of them as soon as they come out. It is a no-brainer.

    I think that the idea of Blackberry World gift cards would be a great idea because instead of paying by credit card(if you have one) or paying the extra money on your bill you can get paid apps, plus you could give someone a gift card as a gift.

    perhaps bb should focus on getting actual first-party apps first? you know something desirable for people to actually want? LMAO

    • MikethemaN

      No kidding. I browsed their play/app store on one of those pos phones and its no better than the playbook. Looks different, but same content. And there isn’t a single bb fan/troll that can deny it either. I wish they’d just go out of business soon and liquidate some office space up near the universities so more productive use can be had of the talent that exists there.

    If you think Apple has invented gift cards you better think again Retail shops grocery stores and department stores etc. have to get cards just like iTunes so blackberry havering a gift card Is a no-brainer it’s time blackberry get with the times

    Is this blog became a Advertisement Site for BB ? they find any excuse to talk about BB, feel like the owners are paid to do this :S shame

      When apple releases a new product this and every other tech sites talks about it non stop and nobody complains…. but because it’s about blackberry right now ifans like you are curled up in the fetal position crying about the lack of attention they’re getting.. so funny!

    One of the other selling points of the iTunes gc is that you can redeem almost every loyalty rewards points for a GC ( air miles, credit card rewards etc.) I have never paid for a iOS app, just redeem air miles for the gc’s

    BlackBerry gift cards are a great idea (one I recommended a few years back but I think the timing wasn’t as good).

    There’s many young BlackBerry owners out there without a credit card that would love to be able to just use a gift card or get one for a birthday/Christmas.

    As an app developer the ability to gift an app to a reviewer is also a key desire.

    As for @MikethemaN you seem a wee bit hostile towards BlackBerry… I’d honestly suggest letting your guard down for a few minutes and give BB10 an honest whirl. It’s actually got a heck of a lot going for it, more memory that all the phones on the market and a really nice multitasking experience that you might just find you’ll miss on other platforms. I know when I use iOS or android now I wish I could swipe between apps and screens like I can on BB10.

    The new z10 is an awesome phone.
    Everyone is going to have one by the end of this year

    I love the idea of renting a movie through Blackberry World with your Z10, and hooking it up to your tv via a HDMI cable.

    Last night, I had a mkv movie that I copied onto my phone through my wireless network. Went to a friends house, connected it through my HDMI cable, and played the entire movie without charging my Z10 simultaneously. I also love how you can turn off the Z10’s screen without interrupting the playback.

    I’m not a big renter, usual buy my blueray’s and convert the movies to .mkv. Blackberry World is a great way to play the latest movies, atleast.
