Microsoft is appealing to students in the United States with a new SkyDrive campaign, offering them 3GB of extra storage for a full year.
All you need to do is to visit this page and register for the promo with your .edu email address. Once the company checks your email account, you shall receive a unique code to extend the SkyDrive storage.
“Voucher valid for an extra 3 GB of free SkyDrive storage for one year. Voucher must be redeemed by 12/31/13. 3 GB storage expires one year from voucher redemption. Limit: one voucher per person. Not redeemable for cash or gift cards. Single use only. This voucher is non-transferrable, and may only be redeemed by U.S. college students,” Microsoft explains.
At this point, SkyDrive users get only 7GB of free storage, so in case you wish to create backups of even more files, this is the right time to give Microsoft’s cloud-based storage service a try.
