Everyone loves extra storage, specially when it comes for free. I am myself a storage fanatic having 2 External hdd (1 TB & 500 GB) and web-account in almost every cloud storage provider(Box, Dropbox, Mega, Drive, OneDrive etc). The problem with cloud storage used to that it is rather very limited and you can mostly use it just to share documents and files (~medium size) but recently some cloud storage services like Mega(50 GB), OneDrive(30 GB) have tried to lure consumers to readily adopt the same.
You must have heard, Microsoft is running an insanely awesome free cloud storage promo. Well yes, you can claim 100GB of free OneDrive storage valid for 2 years if you decide to sign up for a Bing Rewards account*. All you need to do is to sign up for a Bing Rewards account, which is free and then claim cloud storage deal from the dashboard and *poof* you are done.
The problem here is that you can’t access Bing Rewards account outside the United states! It will just show you that “Bing Rewards isn’t available yet in your country or region.”. So I will tell you how to claim 100GB on OneDrive even if you don’t live in the States.
Steps to claim 100GB on Onedrive are as follow:
- Google Chrome
- 5 minutes of Awesomeness!
>> Sign up/Sign in to your OneDrive account.
>> Install the Hola Better Internet chrome extension.
>> Go to Bing Rewards account page. It will show the usual “Bing Rewards isn’t available yet in your country or region.” Click on the Hola Better Internet extension icon on the top right and select United States from the extension menu.
>> Page will refresh and now you will observe that the page is now accessible and it will ask you to accept TnCs and signup for the Bing rewards. Once agreed, you will enter the Dashboard. Located the “Free Storage” offer and click on it.
Duh. Click the big blue button. 😉
100GB extra storage delivered to your OneDrive account as promised!
So, that’s it folks! Your 5 mins to do the 6 steps above are probably worth for a shitload of 100 GB of cloud storage. Yes, obviously Microsoft will wait until 2017 to ask for a dime to use all this goodness. You can use this usage to back up your stuff and it can be really useful if you use Office 2013 suite which comes with OneDrive integration.
