Inspired by this thread and specifically this post, I did some digging to look for the 50 GB offer from Box.com for Dell advantage customers.

It turns out that the link does NOT seem to be specific to a user, so ANYONE can use it. Besides, they seem to WANT to share with your co-workers and friends. Consider yourselves my friends hug

50 GB link [box.com]

Thread FAQ
Details
50 GB of web storage
250 MB file size limit
10 GB - monthly shared bandwidth limit (calendar) [box.com]
Simple sharing and collaboration
Mobile app access

- I already signed up on the 25GB promo, can I sign up again?
For those who signed up previously with a gmail account, you can use the multiple gmail aliases trick [makeuseof.com], to sign up again for the 50 GB.

So instead of signing up for youremail@gmail.com, sign up with youremail+anystuffyouwant@gmail.com, and it should sign you up to a new account. Posters have reported this works and some use youremail+box@gmail.com for ease of remembering.

- It seems to require a phone number. Do I have to give my real phone number?
Yes, a phone number is required, and no, it does not have to be a real one.

- Can I merge multiple accounts together?
No, this is not possible. From Box.com's FAQ [box.com]:

Quote :
We currently do not provide account merge functionality, and email address cannot be associated with more than one Box account
Posters HAVE reported being able to share folders from one account to the other, though. This might run into sharing bandwidth issue, though.

Unfortunately, I don't think so. At least I haven't found anything like that, when I looked through google.
What I did w/ my ones from yesterday is create shared folders between all the accounts. I can manually upload photos, etc. to any of the folders, each of which is linked to one of the free accounts.

*edit* and all folders are accessible via the 'main' account I setup on my galaxy s3

I had a regular account with them not even the 25GB one. I signed up couple about a year ago.

I just clicked on the link and then signed in to my account and it said that we have upgraded your account to 50GB under the Dell promotion.

Not sure if this will work for everyone ...good luck.
How did you sign into your account after clicking on the link? I didn't see any place to log in on that page; only a place to register for a new account.

what kind of docs that's so not sensitive/personal enough that I can store there? Just saying. Is this a reputable place? I only used SkyDrive, and Google drive, I don't know too much about the security risk for those two, but they are with MS and Ggle...

Box is one of the most widely used cloud storage companies by Fortune 500s. Definitely on-par or better than DropBox, SkyDrive, Google Drive, etc.

Just sign up under another e-mail address.

Not sure if the gmail trick works [makeuseof.com], but you might want to give it a shot if you have a gmail account.

Awesome...it worked...never knew about this....

I also did the 25GB one. I have a Google Apps account, so just used one of my e-mail aliases to sign up for this one. 50GB for free is fantastic, even with the 250MB file limit. I currently pay $10/month for 100GB storage on Dropbox (used to be 50GB until they doubled it last year). I'm getting close to using up my 100GB on Dropbox, so this will be a nice to supplement that for my less important files.
