There are plenty of cloud offers out there worth checking out, considering that all the major players are using enticing offers to convince buyers to choose their servers for storing precious files. Now, two of the big names out there are currently willing to offer you some free cloud space amounting to a total of 102GB of storage, assuming you’re ready to act fast.

Microsoft’s offer is the most interesting for the time being, as the company is ready to give you no less than 100GB of free OneDrive space for two years. The catch, as RedmondPie explains it, is that you have to sign up for a particular Microsoft service in order to get your free storage.

To take advantage of the deal, you must be a U.S-based Bing Rewards user, which means you have to sign up for the Bing service if you haven’t done so already. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to redeem your free 100GB of OneDrive cloud storage — the blog has a step-by-step guide that’ll get you through the whole process.

Google also has some free storage for you, though it’s offering only a measly 2GB of extra space. The company is doing it to promote Safer Internet Day though, so you won’t have to sign up for any additional promotional offers from Google.

To get it the extra 2GB of Google Drive space, users simply have to perform a simple account security checkup by February 17th. The process involves ticking off several actions, including updating account recovery information and reviewing recent sign-in activity as well as reviewing the apps and devices that are allowed to access your data.
