A few months back we first saw a hint of promo codes for BlackBerry World. While nothing really came of it, it appears that now BlackBerry may finally be putting coupon codes to use. 

According to a forums post, emails are being sent out for a new program in the BlackBerry Beta Zone for coupon codes. The email states that testers are needed to "help validate promotional codes for music". The users will each receive 5 promo codes which can be used to redeem free tracks from Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey or Robin Thicke. 

It looks like the testing doesn't extend to apps or games yet, but we expect that in due time promo codes will be made available for all music, movies, TV shows, apps and games across BlackBerry World.
