Didn't work for me but that may be because I got the 25GB acct. Was expecting it to go to 28GB.

I can't get it to work for the life of me. I'm following the activate links but it just takes me back to the main page.

I have the 25GB account, logged in and automatically saw a notification on the bottom saying I earned 3GB of free space. I think all you have to do is have camera uploads enabled on your mobile device, which I did a while back when they enabled that feature.

I believe another way to earn this space is to make sure you are logged into Windows 8 via Microsoft account and logged into Skydrive/Onedrive within windows. (I think if you're logged into Windows using a Microsoft account, you'll automatically be logged into Onedrive. Next, open up the Camera metro app and take a picture. That should be saved into camera rolls and give you the 3GB free space.

I enabled camera backup option, but it didn't work for me, though it did copy the camera roll to onedrive.
