I tried, too late I guess. I don't even use the whole 25GB I have now.

BTW I already had the "free" 20 with my office 365 account
If you click the link in OneDrive's tweet John posted earlier in this thread, you'll find the reason:
Attachment 307203
Check the tab title when there, it says OD_Giweaway_NoMoreCodes.
Thanks.

I checked in earlier today and had 50GB of storage, that was made up of 25 GB free, 20 GB Enthusiastic the normal 7 GB and 3 GB because my phone syncs to SkyDrive, now OneDrive. Haven't been back yet to see if there's anything else, was wondering if I could get it on my Kindle, looked in the App store and didn't find it.

Joan - Do you know how to "sideload" apps onto your Kindle?

I had one of the first gen Kindle Fires and when an app existed in Google Play but not in the Kindle store, it was often possible to install the app using the APK for the app. Sometimes you can get the APK from the developers website but the way I would most often get the APK would be to install the app on my phone and then do a backup of the app which creates an APK, The APK then just needs to be transferred to the Kindle then tapping on it will install it.

Anyway, I installed the app on my phone and turned on camera backup, the app indicated it backed up my Android "Camera Roll" folder but, so far, I have not been given the promised additional 3G of additional storage. ...
It took nearly 36 hours but I finally got the 3G of additional storage. I now have 128G of free storage!

I just realized that the 100GB free you get is only for a year.

Look in the storage settings, it has an expiration date

Yeah, I noticed that right away. That's why I was more interested in the 3GB bonus since it is permanent.

APK stands for Android aPplication pacKage file. It's the way Android apps are packaged for distribution.
