Hey wasn't really sure where to post this, just wanted to give a heads up to those who might be interested. You can get 100Gb ($50/year value) of cloud storage from Microsofts OneDrive(Used to be called SkyDrive til a couple weeks ago) if you sign up for Bing Rewards and "buy" the upgrade for 100 credits.

You get 1 credit for every 2 searches with Bing (max 15 Daily) or clicking/viewing ads or tutorials listed. So it would take 7 days to get enough points for the upgrade. You can also spend the points on giftcards, and raffles, or something. You can spam searches each day to cap points daily, then go back to Google (like me) it takes like 2-3 mins most. I just searched letters and random words.

Just figured I would throw out the heads up, also if you DO want to take advantage of this you could use my referral link:
http://www.bing.com/explore/rewards?PUBL=REFERAFRIEND&CREA=RAW&rrid=_190c91a0-51f1-b5fe-69eb-1b547f897596

It gets me 500 points (once I reach 200 points aka "Silver"). Or don't use it, up to you.

They also give you a default 7/8Gb for free, I think. When I installed MS Office 2013 for school it made me make an account to sync my stuff to. So I'm not sure if its default or because I bought Office 2013 (Was only 9.95 with school discount).

God, I hate that freaking OneDrive.

Okay, what I actually hate is Microsoft's desire to add unnecessary clicks to every freaking thing nowadays. But my experience of OneDrive has been really lousy. It also has an insanely strict ToS (of the moral BS variety).

I suppose free storage is free storage, but still. I'd literally never consider OneDrive outside of a business scenario where everyone was using a Windows 8 PC (particularly laptops) and we had reason to want to edit a document from multiple platforms at once.

To be fair, I'm also really annoyed at how Microsoft chose to implement it into the Office UI. So that definitely fuels my irritation.
