    It is offering me 3gb if I sync photos, plus 500mb for each referral.

    No mention of 100gb. Maybe that is to hook in Android users?

    I think I read somewhere that for 100,000 users they were going to give them 100GB of free storage for one year, but I don't know what the criteria was to get it.

    Even with that said, what I would like to ask of you cloud users is, why pay them for cloud storage when you have other options;

    Would your own device from Western Digital not be a more secure alternative?

    one of the reviews;

    WD My Cloud review: A better, more secure alternative to cloud storage | PCWorld

    With the My CloudEX4 you can even stream your media.

    I am really curious why you choose to rent space, with the WD servers you can even set them up in Raid configurations.

    Looks like it was for the first 100.000 to log on. Not working now. There will be other promotions, I have no doubt, much smaller, though.

    Didn't work for me, when I tried a code it just came up with the following:

    But looking at a screenshot from someone who did get the 100GB, it seems to be time-limited for just a year anyway?
