Adam from CB got news that RIM are sort of offering a Buy One Get One Free deal in App World from now until January 12th, 2010. The promotion works in that when you purchase 2 apps, you can get up to $15 back on your second application, of equal or lesser value. It’s a slightly awkwardly worded campaign but it’s the thought that counts. Refunds can take up to 4-6 weeks or by February 23,2010.

So now that the Verizon BlackBerry Storm 9550 is live and they’re offering a Buy One Get One free campaign, what would you buy? Personally, I like the idea but I think it’s a bit of a scam. Everything that you get “free”, will cost you monthly, except for the Netbook, which is currently out of stock. Coincidence?
ED NOTE: Apologies, you actually do need a monthly plan for a netbook. I figured you could get WiFi on the device and avoid the data plan but that’s not the case.
Verizon is bringing back the Buy One Get One promotion but this time you don’t have to get a free BlackBerry as your second device. Your second device can now include a netbook or mobile broadband device to complement your BlackBerry.
The promotion applies to the BlackBerry Tour, Storm and all other BlackBerry devices on the Verizon network. The deal starts today and ends on the 10th of October.
Personally, I say don’t take the bait. Verizon is scrambling to offload their BlackBerry devices in preparation for the Back-to-School and holiday season, when we’ll be seeing a plethora of new devices hit the market. While many of these new devices will be carrier specific, and may not apply to Verizon, there are some great devices in the pipe.
It all depends on how often you replace your BlackBerry. If you can afford to replace your device every six months, then go for it. But if you’re looking for a device once per year, then I really suggest you wait. Verizon will almost certainly be getting the BlackBerry Storm 2 around the holiday season, so save your money.
Verizon had an incredibly successful Buy One Get One promotion for BlackBerry devices but sadly it’s coming to an end. While today may be the official end date, Verizon will honor the BOGO promo through June 27th due to active advertising.
On the bright side, while the BOGO promotion is finished, BlackBerry devices that were under the BOGO promotion will be reduced by $50. This means great savings on the Curve and Storm.
