BlackBerry’s Fan League will give you swag for hyping its poorly-selling phones

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

BlackBerry wants you to advertise on its behalf in exchange for the weekly chance to win… wait for it… BlackBerry-branded gear like a bag, mugs, a hat, and more. Okay, and also a monthly drawing for a BlackBerry smartphone.
