In an attempt to win back customers, BlackBerry is offering users up to $600 to trade-in their iPhones for a new BlackBerry Passport.

Canadian users with a model 4s or later can receive a trade-in value of up to $400, depending on the model of the phone, plus a $200 top-up from BlackBerry. Users in the U.S. are also eligible for this offer, which includes a $150 US top-up. However, this promotion is not available outside North America.

Anyone hoping to take advantage of this offer must purchase a BlackBerry Passport from the company’s online store or from BlackBerry will send users a prepaid Visa gift card within six weeks of receiving the iPhone and proof of purchase for the Passport in the mail. The offer begins December 1 and runs until February 13, 2015.

BlackBerry CEO John Chen recently announced the Passport is now available in red and white, along with the traditional black.
