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 of web storage

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.

It looks like this is dead. When i try the link i get:

"Sorry, we were unable to validate your offer. For the latest info on special deals and promotions you may qualify for, be sure to add Box on Facebook, check out The Box Blog or follow us on Twitter. "

What gets me is if i sign into one of my 50gig accounts theres a link to give a 50gig account to a friend. When i put in an email address it sends them an email for a link to click on, but they get the same error. Seems false advertising to me.

Yeah getting the same thing. ~ 2 hours after I get the promo email from Box

Seems the 50 GB deal is no longer available. I could only find a 10 GB freebie. Not that 10 GB free is bad, but 50 GB would be better!

If you can get access to an iPad or iphone app, they are offering free 50GB.
