Microsoft Will Give You 100GB of Free OneDrive Storage for Two Years

Illustration for article titled Microsoft Will Give You 100GB of Free OneDrive Storage for Two Years

Microsoft is offering a somewhat insane cloud storage deal: You can get 100GB of free OneDrive storage for nearly two years if you sign up for a Bing Rewards account.

If you're a US resident, you just sign up for a Bing Rewards account, which is free, and then go to the Bing Rewards dashboard. The cloud storage deal is there, ready to go. You don't have to make a permanent switch to Bing to take advantage, though that's clearly what Microsoft is hoping you'll do.

That's a small price to pay for a shitload of storage. Microsoft has already offered free unlimited OneDrive storage to Office 365 users, and this is an even sweeter version of a deal they put on last year. Yes, Microsoft will have to wait until 2017 to start charging people, but at that point, they'll have locked in a loyal customer base. Considering how cutthroat cloud storage competition is these days, it's not a bad plan. [CNet]

Joke's on us with the crappy 20,000 file limit (unless they have changes it very recently), and the shitty sync software (nowhere near dropbox, freezes for me at like 50 gigs).

Makes my 1 TB with office much less appealing, I only use it for 4k video storage now.
