Cloud this… cloud that… everything is cloud these days. While there is no question that “cloud” has become a painfully annoying buzzword, there is also no question that the rise of cloud storage services and cloud computing have been absolute game-changers. There are obvious (and quite serious) security concerns anytime any of your data is stored on remote servers belonging to a third party, but there are also huge benefits that are nearly impossible to give up once you’ve embraced the cloud.

If you have yet to take the plunge — or even if you have and you want more storage space — a great new offer will get you 100GB of cloud storage for a full year, and it’s absolutely free.

DON’T MISS: Is your smartphone spying on you?

Just last week, Microsoft kicked off a huge promotion that gave anyone and everyone 100GB of free cloud storage with its OneDrive service. Getting your 100GB is simple, but somewhat annoying: All you have to do is register for Microsoft’s Bing Rewards program and 100GB of free cloud storage is yours for two years.

Of course, there are plenty of people out there who want nothing to do with Bing Rewards, which is a shopping rewards program that gives you credits when you buy products from certain vendors. If that’s the case, you now have another way to get 100GB for free.

Beginning immediately, anyone with a Dropbox account — paid or free — can get 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage for free for one year. Like Dropbox, OneDrive allows you to save documents and other files in the cloud and access them from any computer, smartphone or tablet.

To collect your free storage, simply visit the special promotional page on Microsoft’s site and follow the provided directions. It takes just a few minutes to do, and you’ll be set with 100GB for the next 12 months.

And as a reminder, if you are in fact willing to register for Bing Rewards, that promotion will get you 100GB of OnDrive storage for a full 24 months.
