Microsoft has announced it will begin offering 100GB of free cloud storage on its OneDrive service to customers who sign up for their new Bing Rewards programs.
For the small fee of getting a few promotional Bing emails in your email every month, you can get a tenth of a terabyte of space on OneDrive absolutely free of charge.
“Want 100 GB of free OneDrive storage for 1 year? It’s easy! Join Bing Rewards and earn credits when you search with Bing, then redeem them for 100 GB of OneDrive storage for one year. You can also enter to win our amazing giveaways or choose from popular gift cards,” Microsoft’s website explains.
The catch, however, is that you’ll have to keep using Bing throughout the year for the storage space to stay active. For every search you make you get points, which can then be spent on things like increased storage, promotional items, and gift cards.
The company is running the campaign as its cloud storage service continues to spike in popularity in recent months, but Bing still lags woefully behind Google as the preferred search engine for average users. This no doubt an attempt to leverage OneDrive’s popularity to help Bing gain a few users.
