Days of carrying around expensive and heavy hard drives are long gone. This is the era of cloud storage. After all, why would someone want to spend money on storage systems when they can instantly save and download files on the web in such a way that they can be accessed from anywhere, anytime?
What is OneDrive?
OneDrive is one of the most popular cloud storage services available right now. The only issue with OneDrive is its limited space. Currently, it offers only 5GB of free storage space. However, depending on what you do, how often you store files, and what file types you store on the web, you might get short of storage space.
If you are also someone stuck in this situation and are not willing to pay to upgrade your storage plan, don’t worry! We have got a perfect solution for you i.e: OneDrive Referral Bonus.
What is OneDrive’s Referral Bonus Scheme?
Like any other tech websites, Microsoft also offers a referral bonus scheme. It is a simple way to earn some extra storage space by inviting your friends to use OneDrive as well.
For each friend who signs up using your referral link, both you and your friend will get an additional 500 MBs of storage space for free. Through this method, you can earn up to 10 GBs of additional space. This means that from a modest 5 GBs, you can boost your space to a whopping amount of 15 GBs! Now that should be sufficient.
How Can I Win OneDrive Referral Bonus?
Here’s what you need to do:
- Login to your Microsoft (Outlook – formerly known as Hotmail) account.
- Head to your OneDrive’s Manage Storage section by using this link.
- Click on Earn more, which will be located right in front of Referral Bonus.
- You will now see a link that you can copy and send it to your friends.
- The platform allows you to share links through a variety of mediums including:
- Sina Weibo
Alternatively, you can also post your referral signup requests to public forums. If it is your lucky day, someone might jump in and help you earn some extra space.
For now, this is the only possible way to extend your storage space. The Samsung Bonus of 100 GBs was discontinued for devices built after 2019, which come with OneDrive pre-installed in it.
Now all you need is a few minutes to spare and of course, a bunch of friends who are willing to sign up via your link 🙂
Bonus Tip: Instead of finding ways to increase your storage, you can also try to clean up your existing drives by finding and removing duplicates. Automated tools like Cloud Duplicate Finder could help big time.
