Microsoft OneDrive Cloud Storage: 100GB Storage free for 2 years on Installing Outlook App - Samsung phones only - YMMV

when I opened Microsoft's One-drive app on my android phone I came across the following:

Install Outlook app and get 100 GB for 2 years free.

The promotion also had link to click where it took me to Android Playstore for the Outlook app.

I installed the Outlook app and didn't configure anything in the outlook, but instead came back to the One-drive app and it refreshed automatically saying "Redeeming the offer.." adding 100 GB to my One-drive.

I guess it might be targeted. That's why a YMMV on the title.

Edit: Adding more information after some quick googling

- I'm guessing this promotion is more related to Samsung Galaxy Phone users but I might be wrong
- I redeemed this offer on my S7 edge. (Note, I had this phone for last 2 years and already redeemed this kinda offer before from Microsoft One-drive)
- This offer doesn't seem to "only linked to new galaxy phones". This promo can appear on your old galaxy phones as well.

The below steps might also work, You can also try

1. Sign out of all OneDrive bundled applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive);
2. Go to 'settings', 'applications', then 'OneDrive', and 'Clear data' and 'Clear cache'.
Worked for me after relaunching OneDrive."

For the first time ever, I installed the OneDrive app, then the Outlook app, to my Essential PH-1 smartphone. I didn't see such an offer.

I got this randomly about a week ago. I already had the Outlook app, so not sure it has anything to do with that.

Nice! I followed your steps on my S7 and it worked just as you described. One thing tho, after you get to the OneDrive app in settings, you want to click on "Storage" and then clear data.

Been using OneDrive when it was called Sky Drive, I love it and have had literally zero issues with it. It comes with file size/format features many other top cloud providers dont even offer with obviously extremely reliable servers, etc.

Office 365 comes with 5 TB free if you ever needed more at an insanely reasonable price, not to mention Office comes with it for all your devices.

You can sync between Google Drive and others using Microsoft's own Flow, it's amazing and free. You can even auto backup your Gmail attachments to OneDrive if you wanted to.

I have made my google drive and Dropbox folders as sub folders under the onedrive folder. So everything is on my onedrive. Works great for me Smilie
