Free 1 GB additional storage in Dropbox by linking Mailbox App

Found 23rd Jan 2015
Not a huge amount, but if you use and like using Dropbox then you can just get 1 GB extra. Here's how:

Mailbox users can now get a free gigabyte of Dropbox space just for connecting your Dropbox account to the app. Compatible with iOS, Android, PC, Mac Etc.

As soon as you grant Mailbox access to your Dropbox account, your storage allotment will increase by 1GB. If you already have the two services connected, unlink them in the Mailbox settings menu and reauthorize. The bonus storage should then show up.

Thanks! Know of any other easy ways of scoring extra storage? My Samsung bonus 50GB expired and I'm suffering!

Me too, I thought it would go back up after I bought my galaxy tablet which came with the 50gb offer too. Turns out you can only claim the offer once no matter how many device you purchase :-(

Heat from me, always looking to increase my storage on DropBox for free.

Heat added! Thanks!

But then you'd have to reupload all your files to that new account right? Storage isn't an issue (have 50GB with Box and 30GB with OneDrive) but I have the most important stuff on Dropbox and it's my favourite to use.

Was the additional space added as soon as you signed into the app?

Doesnt appear to be working for me. Ive signed into mailbox with my dropbox account email but im not seeing any extra space. Does it take a while to be added? Maybe im doing something wrong?

Referrals are the best way to get more storage... But it's a bit of a faff

You can also get a little space by facebooking and twittering dropbox stuff using this link:
dropbox.com/get…ace

I didn't gettti either. Then I realised this is not a new offer. I appear to have done it 8 months ago! Could be the same for you?

If you can create dummy email addresses, refer yourself to that account with your existing account to get free referral storage. Just takes time....

Great. Been struggling with the lack of free space.

It's a bit crap without exchange!
Did Microsoft not buy part of Dropbox? Why no exchange? Bizarre
Anyways cheers op, extra 1gb
You can check it from within Dropbox account settings

Yep I think you may be right

if you have a Samsung account (for Samsung mobiles) register and link your dropbox and get 50gb extra. Not 100% sure if you need a Samsung device to get the Samsung account

Not necessarily; you could share all your files with your new account. It's all on Dropbox's servers already so it gets transferred straight away without any need to re-upload.

Yes, I downloaded from play store, opened app and it linked to dropbox. The account credit was instant, which I checked on my laptop.

Why bother with a measly amount from Dropbox?

You get 15GB free from Copy.com.

Thanks. Doesn't seem to have worked for me on ios. I have got extra space by trying camera upload in the past so that might be why.

Had already done Mailbox but didn't realise Carousel was from Dropbox as well. Thanks Blotch - 2.6GB richer now!

Anyone wondering, the extra space gets added the moment you download the app and link the account. On iOS make sure to disable the 'back up photos to dropbox' option that's enabled by default (unless you want to of course).

Free 1gb is always worth a hot vote!

HOT! Worked instantly, didn't even need to add an email account

You should really be using encrypted storage systems like mega

I've not come across "Mailbox" before (and I'm not convinced I want it). My main point is that my Dropbox account is linked to my Lycos.com account (remember them?) and using this freebie link ... I seem only able to link the Mailbox to a GoogleMail account or a Cloud account. Thus my Dropbox account remains untouched and no bigger than before. Anyone got any ideas how I can "marry" them, please?
