I had my app ready yesterday in time to qualify for the trade-up program, but I discovered last night that my vendor account had been disabled. So I set up another vendor account-- but this apparently takes time at the RIM end to approve for some reason, before I can actually log in and submit my app. I realize that RIM would want to check my documentation before allowing me to sell, but this delay caused me to miss the deadline, after a costly last minute push to get my app done and tested.
There are probably many others in the same boat, not having checked about the vendor portal setup until the last day.
Is RIM willing to offer any grace period or extension, or are we out of luck?

I know they extended the deadline for build for blackberry 10k offer.
I did not hear anything about extending the deadline for Limted Trade up.
Maybe if they get enough email request they might extend the deadline for the limted trade up also.

I already sent a Vendor Portal feedback form last night. I suspect the place to send the message is right here in this forum. I think we'll have to await an official response from RIM.
Meanwhile, my app and collaterals are ready, but my vendor account is still not live.
I hope this means they are swamped with submissions
