Got a Windows phone? Then get ready to enjoy this holiday gift from Microsoft. The company has announced that it will be giving Windows phone users the chance to activate a bonus of 20GB free SkyDrive storage for a year.
Ever since Microsoft streamlined its SkyDrive services in April 2012 giving users just 7GB of SkyDrive storage instead of its 25GB offer from earlier, Microsoft has been trying to entice customers to use its cloud storage services by throwing in some interesting offers. You may remember a similar offer made by the company on purchase of a Surface 2 or Surface Pro 2 tablet, where customers could get of 200GB extra storage for two years.
If you’re a Windows user, SkyDrive of course is an ideal tool to connect and sync all your photos and files to access from just about anywhere. The free extra storage will come in handy to back up videos and photos you capture on your Windows phone because if something should happen to your phone, your data will remain perfectly safe and accessible on SkyDrive.
With the Windows ecosystem still playing catch up to the major players, Microsoft is probably hoping that these bonus teasers could draw in more customer loyalty.
If you’re interested in picking up an extra 20GB storage for free for a year, check your Windows Phone Inboxes and redeem that code. You have until 31st January 2014 to claim your gift.
