Why am I not eligible for rewards?

I was told by one person at Blackberry that some of the apps I submitted didn't qualify for rewards. I'm confused as to why, and I don't really think it's fair. This person told me that since I didn't upload my .bar file during the Port-A-Thon, it didn't qualify for rewards.


I created products and uploaded the .bar files prior to the Port-A-Thon, but that is completely kosher according to the terms and conditions and from multiple people at Blackberry I talked to.

Erik Oros confirmed this for me with this tweet:
Also, in the terms and conditions, the word "upload" isn't there. However the word "submit/submitting/submitted" appears 16 times in the rules. So based off of those two facts, I believe I am eligible for rewards. I "submitted" my apps in the proper time period. 
Is there anything I'm missing here? I am not trying to be difficult, I just would like to get some cash for my apps and I thought I did everything within the rules of the Port-A-Thon.

You're in the wrong forum. This is the Built for BlackBerry forum. Maybe ask in the BBW forum.
