Microsoft deal delivers ‘free’ 100GB of OneDrive storage

Share This Post

If you’re the type of person who can never have too much cloud storage, Microsoft just added a nice deal: 100GB of OneDrive storage as a Bing Reward offer.

Normally, amassing the credits needed to redeem a Bing Reward takes some time and effort. But with just a little bit of work, you’ll probably earn this one almost immediately.

If you prefer to use Bing as your search engine, or don’t mind switching back and forth between Bing and Google, Microsoft’s Bing Rewards is a worthwhile loyalty program. Each time you visit Bing, Microsoft records the visit. Over time, users are awarded “credits” for their visits as well as visiting a dashboard to pick up additional tasks or for referring friends to the service.

Microsoft is offering a free 200-credit bonus to friends you invite to Bing Rewards.

Now Microsoft is offering 100GB of OneDrive (nee SkyDrive) storage for one year for 100 credits. (Microsoft officials have said previously that any unused storage will vanish after the year expires, but Microsoft won’t delete any files.)

Through the end of February, Microsoft is also offering a free 200-credit bonus to friends you invite to Bing Rewards. And if they complete Silver-level status (which basically means they need to click through a “tour” or two), you’ll get 200 credits as well. It’s a bit spammy, so you’re more likely to convince your friends to participate if you pitch it as a “scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours” deal.

Microsoft already hands out 7GB of free OneDrive cloud storage to new users who sign up for the service. As part of it rebranding SkyDrive to OneDrive marketing effort, Microsoft also handed out an additional 3GB if you simply turned on the camera-backup feature on your smartphone (iOS, Android, or Windows Phone). Referring a friend to OneDrive will earn you another 500MB, up to a maximum of 5GB.

The additional OneDrive storage deal might not be the best offer you can get. Microsoft offers a 5-percent discount at the Microsoft Store for just 50 credits, for example, and other deals include $5 gift cards at Amazon or Starbucks for 525 credits.

If you prefer Google’s search engine, you’ll probably want to stick with it. But if you’re willing to check out Bing, Microsoft will reward you with tangible benefits.
