Get 100GB of free OneDrive storage thanks to this loophole

Get 100GB of free OneDrive storage thanks to this loophole
Microsoft is attempting to entice more users to eventually use Office 365 and Windows 10 by offering 100GB of OneDrive storage completely free of charge for two years.

Users can take advantage of the offer through the Bing Rewards scheme, although no Bing credits will be deducted from your account and the only catch is that you must agree to receive promotional emails from the Redmond-based firm.

For now the offer is only open to customers in the United States and TechRadar Pro did reach out to Microsoft to find out whether it will be offered in other countries, but at the time of writing we hadn't heard anything back.

However, use freely available VPN software to change your IP address to a US one and you will be able to get the deal. Chrome users can use Hola or Zenmate.

Make it cheaper with Office 365

After the two years, Microsoft will be hoping that users decide to continue with the 100GB plan that costs $1.99 (about £1.31, or AU$2.56) per month, working out at approximately $24 (around £16 or AU$31 across the whole year.

OneDrive and OneDrive for Business users can already blast that charge out of the water by subscribing to the Office 365 service, where you get unlimited cloud storage as part of the plan you're on.

Once the free two years are up, buying an Office 365 Personal subscription is by far the cheapest way to get unlimited OneDrive storage with a one-year subscription coming in at less than £50 at CCL.
