Check the Specs and License terms for their differences.

1-Year Dropbox Plus Subscription + $25 Promo eGift Card for $60

Dell Small Business is off to the Black Friday races with a cloud-busting deal. They are offering 1-Year Annual Dropbox PLUS subscription for $60 and with that you also receive a $25 promotional Dell e-Gift Card within 20 days after purchasing.

Dropbox Plus gets you 1TB of storage for one year for one user. They support all the major platforms including Linux. I do not know if this offer can be appended to an existing Dropbox paid subscription.

The $25 promo e-gift card can only be spent at Dell, and usually within 90 days upon receipt. That’s why it’s a promotional e-gift card instead of a regular gift card.

PS: speaking of clouds, Stacksocial offers the 2TB Lifetime Zoolz Cloud Storage for $40 instead of its usual price of $50. The 2TB are broken into 1TB of Instant Storage and 1TB of Cold Storage. It includes access to two machines for backups. This is for new customers only and cannot be “stacked” for more space. This is a lifetime service, not an annual subscription!

You can change the designated backup devices, but you can only have two active ones at a time. Check terms and description for all the details.

Speaking of Stacksocial, they have a variety of Pay What You Want promotions including one for photography. Minimum price is $1, but if you want to unlock additional items, you have to meet or beat the average price, which typically is under $20.

This covers up to four computers and back up for NAS & DAS drives. This is an all sales final promotion. Check the listing over there for all the details.

Free 1-Year Unlimited Everything Cloud Storage with Qualifying purchase

Amazon is offering (for a limited time) a FREE 12-month Amazon Cloud Unlimited Everything Cloud Storage subscription when you make an eligible purchase, including camera gear purchases of $50. Details and eligible items through the Cloud Promotion page. This service level is Everything, not just Photos (which is included with a Prime membership).

1-Year of Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Storage for $5

This promotion is good for everyone, both Prime members and non-Prime member. If you need more than photo storage, they also have a limited time promotion, 1yr of Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Storage (not just Photo) for $5 for the first year. The regular price is $59 per year.

Prime members get free unlimited photo storage, but not unlimited everything storage. So if you are a Prime member and mostly need photo storage space, you don’t need this service. On the other hand, if you also need lots of storage space (more than 5GB) for documents, videos, music files (not purchased from Amazon), and other non-photo files, then this might be of interest.

PS: mp3 music files purchased directly from Amazon, or added to your Amazon account because of an AutoRip eligible purchase (CD or Vinyl) do not count towards your storage limits.

1-Year of Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Photo Storage for $1 [non-Prime]

If you are not an Amazon Prime member, this promotion is for you. For a limited time you can sign up for 1-Year of Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Photo Storage for $1. The $1 price is for the first year. The regular price is $12/year. You also get 5GB to use for other non-photo files.

If you are a Prime member, you already get FREE unlimited cloud photo storage. If you are a Prime member and visit the above website logged to your Prime account, you will not see the offer because you already get this service for free.

For the speed-readers, this offer is for the Unlimited Cloud Photo Storage service. This is different from the Unlimited Cloud Storage (not just unlimited photos).

Free One Year of Unlimited Amazon Cloud storage with Camera Gear purchase of $50+ (33,403 options available)

Amazon is very big on cloud (side-effects of living in Seattle?), and now they have yet another unlimited cloud storage promotion. This one is not limited to Prime members or Fire Phone users. During this promotion, you get One Year Unlimited Amazon Cloud storage if you purchase camera gear individually priced $50 or more. This is The List of Eligible Items, a total of 33,403 items are eligible.

They must be sold and shipped by Amazon itself (not by marketplace sellers). The offer is one per customer, so you cannot stack cloud-years. You can find the Terms And Conditions below the giant thumbnails over there. The expiration date is not mentioned.

After the one year ends (12 months), the subscription fee for this is $60/year. You can cancel it later if you don’t want to continue with it once the free year expires.

How to Check If Your Item Of Interest is Eligible?
If you don’t feel like traversing a list of 33,403 items to find whether you are interested in is eligible, there is an easier way. Go to the product page of the items of interest, and page down to the Special Offers section. If an item is eligible, you will see this offer mentioned there. Remember, Amazon herself must be the seller, not 3rd-party sellers! Squeezed annotated screenshot crop below…


1TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 HDD + 200GB OneDrive Cloud (2yr) for $55

The silver and black go for slightly more. The different colors can be useful if you want to easily color-code them for your mobile or internal backup purposes. Once you register these, you can receive 200GB of OneDrive cloud storage for two years. This is good for new or existing OneDrive accounts but you can only redeem one of these 200GB freebies per OneDrive account.

TIP: here is one color coding scheme: red for weddings, blue for landscape, black for family, silver for business.

1TB Dripbit Cloud Backup for $55 (lifetime subscription)

If you are fond of cloud backups, among the offers at Stacksocial you can get a 1TB Lifetime subscription cloud backup plan for $55 by Dripbit. You only pay once and you get 1TB of cloud storage for life. Optionally you can add more storage later if you want to. Supports up to five devices at a time and works with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android. This is instant redemption. All sales final.

Coming Today: Google Photos app with unlimited backups (up to 16mp)

During today’s Google I/O 2015 (see video), Google revealed a stand-alone Google Photos app that will be available on Android, iOS and the Web. It will sync with Google Drive, and has a number of features including free unlimited backups for images up to 16 megapixels and videos up to 1080p. Not sure yet what happens for images over 16mp.

Samsung Device Owners: 10 Free VSCO Cam Presets

If you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or tablet, one of the Samsung Owners Hub offers is ten free presets for the VSCO Cam photo app. I don’t know if every Samsung (Galaxy) device is eligible or some of them or if this depends on registration status and such. Samsung works in mysterious ways 🙂 The offer is available through the Samsung+ app on Google Play which is the new name for the Samsung Owner’s Hub. Once you install that app, go to the Promotions tab, and page down until you see the VSCO Cam offer. There is a little link thing to press in a circle on the left side (see screenshot below) to get you to VSCO Cam. There’s also an offer that gets you two years of an extra 100TB of Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage there.


PS1: I don’t know if these offers are stackable with the Galaxy Perks.

PS2: by the time you read this, it will probably be renamed to Galaxy Owners Plus Hub, or Milk Galaxy Apps or Galaxy Prime Alpha App Store 😉

Amazon Cloud Drive: $12/yr for Unlimited Photo Storage [Free for Prime members]

If you are a fan of cloud backups and backups-of-backups and backups-of-backups-of-backups (and so forth), Amazon is now selling Unlimited Photo storage for $12 per year for non-Prime members. Prime members get this feature for FREE as part of their Prime membership. If you are not a Prime member, you get a free 3-month trial of this service. It includes unlimited photo storage plus 5GB of any other file types (videos, documents, etc, your choice).

If you want to store a lot of other data (not just photos), they have a $60/year Unlimited Cloud Storage plan. Everyone has to pay for this plan, Prime members too. This plan too comes with a free 3-month trial membership.

You can upload your photos using the Desktop (PC or Mac) Cloud Drive app or the mobile apps (iOS, Android, Fire Android) or use the browser-based Cloud Drive navigation (eg Drag and Drop or use File Explorer on Windows). [updated]

This is an automatic renewal subscription service, so it will keep renewing unless you manually cancel it on your Amazon account. It requires a credit card (no debit/gift-cards) for the payment plans.

Clarification #1: this general Cloud Drive offer should not be confused with the Fire Phone promotion that gets you unlimited photo storage for photos taken with the Fire Phone (which is not linked to a Prime membership, but includes a 1yr Prime membership upon purchase).

Clarification #2: Digital Music you purchase from Amazon (or is included with a CD/vinyl purchase) is stored in your Amazon locker but does not count against your 5GB Cloud Drive storage. The 5GB is for anything you upload on your own.

Mobile Photographers: unlimited mobile backup for up to 5 devices for $10 lifetime with iDrive

If you are looking for another/additional option for protection of your mobile photography, Stacksocial has a lifetime backup promotion from iDrive. You pay $10 once, and you can make unlimited mobile device backups using the iDrive apps on Android, iOS and Windows Phone. You can connect up to five devices to this plan. This is good for new iDrive accounts only. This is a one-time $10 fee, not a monthly or annual fee. All sales are final. Check aforelinked page for terms/conditions. Offer ends in about 4 days from today.

Short Term 1TB of Free Cloud Storage with computer purchase

If you are looking for short term cloud storage as additional-additional layers of backup of your photos, both Google and Microsoft are now offering rivaling 1TB cloud storage options for FREE when you purchase select Chromebooks and Windows 8 laptops -for a limited time. The catch however is that the storage is free for a limited time only, Google for two years and Microsoft OneDrive for one year. Microsoft started the 1TB thing and today Google “price matched” it by jumping from the usual 100MB for Chromebooks to 1TB. The Google deadline for purchases of eligible computers is 12/31/14. Terms and restrictions apply to these offers and I don’t know what happens if you are already in the middle of an offer or if you had previously redeemed a similar option… Ironically, perhaps we are getting close to the point where it might be cheaper to buy a new laptop to get the free 1TB Cloud storage than rent the Cloud storage outright 🙂

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 🙂
