Amazon Prime members: FREE Unlimited Photo Storage [updated]

UPDATE (11/8/14): One of our readers pointed out in the comments that one of the Cloud Drive pages makes it sound like you only get unlimited photos only for photos taken with a Fire Phone or Fire Tablet. However, that looks like they messed up the wording – it looks like a failed attempt to market the Fire devices. Judging by multiple responses to Twitter questions by the official Cloud Drive Twitter account, it suggests that the offer is unlimited regardless of devices. For example, in the tweet below, one person asked them if 1.8TB (terabytes) was okay and they said yes as long as they are a Prime member…

One thing to note is that the offer is only for photos, not videos.

Another thing of note, if you are using uncommon file formats, their system may not recognize them as pictures and instead count them against the cloud quota. If so, contact their customer service and they should be able to fix it since they don’t have a restriction against RAW files philosophically.

If you are an Amazon Prime member, or if you are on the bubble as to whether to sign up or renew the membership, Amazon just revealed another Prime member benefit. Unlimited photo storage with Amazon Cloud Drive Photos.

They are multiple ways you can load up your Cloud Drive with photos: it has a Google Play Android app (Android 2.3.3 or later), an iTunes iOS app (iOS 7 or later), and Amazon Android-ish app store and Desktop PC apps (the pages for those try to automatically start a download so I’m not putting them here because that’s rude).

I haven’t read the full terms and conditions, so I don’t know how “unlimited” unlimited is. There are physical limits, although I guess there are also physical limits on how much and how fast one can upload as well 🙂

If your device is not compatible with the app, you can still get it by using a web browser. When the popup tells you that the app is incompatible, just tell it to go ahead and scoop it up… Another helpful thing, the latest version of the Amazon Android (Google Play) app is now able to sideload your Amazon-purchased Android apps, so you don’t have to install the separate Amazon AppStore app… You may need to have at least one Android device connected to your Amazon account before it lets you get any apps. I haven’t tried this with a disconnected account in a while, so I don’t know if they changed this…
