    Anybody else confirm a receipt of something like this and how much the discount actually is (if real at all)?

    Well, if they have, they should probably keep quiet about it, rather than gloating over it....

    I wonder if this VIP discount would be larger than the employee discount? Too bad its not on the employee store yet

    Off to BBM my friend with a PlayBook...

    I hope Classic owners get one too. I just bought my Classic and it's not even a year, but if there's a discount I don't mind decomm-ing it earlier.
    how do we register our playbooks online anyway?

    I have used my BlackBerry In medical practice for 10 years too! Curve with early trackball, Curve with optical pad, Z10, Z30, OG Passport, AT&T Passport, and SE Passport. Just sold my PlayBook plus all other phones to grap a Priv. Keeping my SE Passport for now. Best wishes and nothing but good will to you. I am interested in what you think re: form factor and security.

    I think anyone that "still owns" a BlackBerry(s) should get a discount! Chen can keep the letter.

    What is the point of this thread? Good for you OP. If you can't say anything about it, then why post at all? You are bragging for no reason and if you're telling the truth, you're risking your "special relationship".

    Let the man post what he will.


    I saw this post as "hey look I'm getting a discount on the Priv, maybe others will to"

    This thread wasn't created as a way for everyone to get this discount. I'm assuming this dude spends a good chunk of change hence why he got this discount who knows maybe others will bet a similar discount too. Quit hating.

    I've been fortunate enough to receive a VIP invite and discount code from John Chen to purchase the PRIV ! I won't specify exactly how much of a discount I'm entitled to, but it's definitely substantial enough to convince me to buy the Priv. I was on the fence due to the $899 CAD price tag, but now I can buy one without breaking the bank.

    I wonder what "delivered with white glove service" means? But it sure sounds good!

    Thank you BlackBerry and thanks John Chen!

    Looking at OP's screenshot, the left part of where its blacked out i see 2 little dots, looks like it might be a 3 - 30% discount? Even 20-25 is pretty good. If thats the case I'd jump on the band wagon too, 30% off its like $270, if only we were all so lucky.

    lol, good find. The position of the lower 'dot' has me thinking that it may be a '2'.
    My guess is 20%

    A friend at BB tells me this invite is going out to all registered PlayBook owners.
    I have and still use my 64 gb Playbook and I did not receive an invite.

    I think it needs to be clarified that the original poster whom suggested the PlayBook connection to the discount was joking. Would be nice though.
