Dropbox is taking things up a notch. For years now, the easy-to-use file sharing service has been on top of the world, riding high, roping in new users and charging a substantial amount of money for any additional storage beyond 2GB. But now, with Google
Drive potentially looming, Dropbox
is cutting loose with the promotions. Starting this week, every user that invites a friend (who then joins) will see an extra 500MB of free storage. And, that friend will get it as well. If you’ve got a free account, you can invite up to 32 people for a whopping total of 16 GB of extra space. Pro accounts now earn 1 GB per referral, for a total of 32 GB of extra space. Have you already invited a bunch of people? Don’t worry. Within a few days, you’ll get full credit for every referral that’s already been completed.
Let the cloud wars commence!
