Microsoft giving away 20GB for extra SkyDrive storage to Windows Phone users

Microsoft are getting into the Christmas spirit this year by giving away 20GB of extra SkyDrive storage to Windows Phone users. Microsoft sent out an email to Windows Phone users thanking them for being Windows Phone customers and giving them 20GB of extra SkyDrive Store for one year. It’s encouraging to see Microsoft reward Windows Phone enthusiast with the extra storage, along with my original 25GB plus my Surface bonus of 200GB I now have 245GB of SkyDrive storage as my disposal!

So if you’re a Windows Phone user there is no excuse for now uploading your Christmas photos to SkyDrive.

Here is the email:

Hello!
To show our appreciation of Windows Phone customers, we are giving you an extra 20 GB of free SkyDrive storage for one year. This is in addition to the 7 GB of free SkyDrive storage that all customers currently have. SkyDrive is built into your Windows Phone. It’s personal online storage that you can access – along with the photos and files you save there – at SkyDrive.com from any Internet-enabled device, and through the SkyDrive mobile app. To apply this storage to your account, click here by 31 January 2014.* If you do not yet have a SkyDrive account, you can sign up by clicking here. If you do not have or want a SkyDrive account, no action is needed, and there will be no change to your Windows Phone. A great way of using this extra storage is to automatically back up the photos and videos you take on your phone. When your photos or files are on SkyDrive, you can still get to them if something happens to your phone.
