Free 200GB OneDrive for Telstra Customers (New or Previous Accounts)

1340

Free 200gb onedrive from telstra.

I was able to redeem the free 200gb even though I am no longer an active telstra customer, I just signed in with my old telstra account from a few years ago and it redeemed fine.

Link to the promotion: https://www.telstra.com.au/latest-offers/onedrive

Looks like it's for 2 years according to telstras website, however it doesn't have the expiry in onedrive.

Revoke permissions from telstra having access to your onedrive account to add or remove data here: https://account.live.com/consent/Manage the 200gb remains likely after telstras 2 years as they will be unable to make changes to your onedrive.

Enjoy :)

    Free for 2 years, then you'll need to pay monthly for it.

      Thanks for that. It doesn't come up with an expiry when I redeem: http://imgur.com/a/aGrdR so it might be forever. Ehh its free!

      *edit: revoke telstra permissions after redeeming here: https://account.live.com/consent/Manage 200gb is likely to remain as telstra cant access your account to add or remove anything.

        Microsoft can remove it if Telstra stops paying them for it.

          I doubt telstra pay microsoft for it as they are an official microsoft reseller of office 365 and other products via the telstra apps marketplace. They prob have an arrangement with microsoft to use this as a promo. But you are right, they could remove it. But hey, free 200gb for 1 year. In 2 years time there will be some other new offer by then to redeem haha. :)

        Ha 200GB for life long!

      At the bottom of the page, under the heading "Things you need to know", there is the following text (after you click on the show/reveal arrow):

      "Upon redemption, you can upload and access your documents/photos/videos for a maximum of two years. After two years, and unless extended by Telstra, you will still be able to access the documents/photos/videos (data charges apply) but will not be able to upload new ones."

      Read the above carefully; I interpret it as saying that after 2 years you will still be able to view your files, but will not be able to add new files (unless Telstra extends the partnership with OneDrive/Microsoft).

      So, revoking Telstra access to OneDrive will not do anything.

      The way telstra works:

      1. At some point in the future the offer expires, but don't worry
      2. Telstra will have billed you two months in advance for the service
      3. You can cancel the automated billing at any time
      4. You receive an email that states the free OneDrive is no longer offered, please login or call them if you want to cancel
      5. You cancel the subscription, 4 days later you receive a bill for 2 months advance bill for OneDrive
      6. You cannot remove the charge, it will be credited to your next invoice though :)
      7. You cancel your Telstra service in retaliation
      8. You receive a cancellation invoice with a number of additional charges.

        Is this fact or are you making fun because telstra are a pain in the bum?

        This says on that free redemption page: http://imgur.com/a/1MCLM - if you remove telstras access from here: https://account.live.com/consent/Manage they might not be able to remove it. Otherwise, its free for 2 years, they wont charge you for it.

          Yes my post was making fun of Telstra (but also based on prior experience, you will have to dance around like a monkey if things don't go your way and it become 'not free').

          Be wary what you sign up for, that's my recommendation.

          @THICKnSLOW:

          (but also based on prior experience, you will have to dance around like a monkey if things don't go your way and it become 'not free')

          So you're saying you signed up for a free Telstra/OneDrive offer, got charged for it, canceled it, then received yet another bill for a further two months (so 4 months total). You then canceled your whole Telstra service, and got sent a bill with additional charges (like what?).

          Is that right?

        •  

          @eug: No, he's saying be careful when you pay for anything from telstra, get charged unexpectedly, cancel and have extra charges.

          This deal appears to be free. There should be no penalties.

          OK, so his comment isn't relevant to this deal then.

    Mmmm looks like you have already redeemed this offer…. Must have been posted on ozb previously.

      Was it this deal… I had a look and couldn't work out what the difference was.

      •  

        Ahh yep looks like the same deal. The difference being in this post I figured out you can redeem even if you aren't a current telstra client, just sign in with your old telstra account info :)

      •  

        That must be it because I signed up around that time.

    Have to give permissions for Telstra to add and remove storage to your account. Suspect it has an expiry.

    Remember to encrypt whatever you put up there. Dealing with storage issues almost daily, I wonder how the deal would stay live if everyone upped their 200gb worth of data or plain garbage on there.

        Oh yeah forgot that aus is still trying to crawl out of the creche of transfer quotas.

        •  

          You know the US is moving towards quotas right?

        •  

          @eug:
          Yeah but that's Comcast. Comcast is the equal of Telstra there. The embodiment of S-word.

          But they've got A LOT better options other than that, unlike us.

          @songford: When the largest ISP in the country starts implementing data caps, others will be watching with keen eyes.

          AT&T implemented a data cap 5 years ago, but are lax with enforcement, so it's nothing new.

          After seeing the impact of unlimited quotas on the 4G network during the recent Telstra free data days, I think quotas are a good thing for an island like Australia. A small number of people can ruin speeds for everybody.

          Also, it'd be a lot cheaper for ISPs in the US to buy local bandwidth than it is for ISPs here to pay for bandwidth through expensive undersea cables.

    Can I configure this as icloud / automatic backup storage?

  •  

    Thanks OP. Now 430GB capacity!

  •  

    I have activated this 200G offer & confirmed by the Telstra website that I have done so. Yet when I chk my storage for the Microsoft's One Drive, it still only show the standard FREE 5 G space.

    Why can it be?

    •  

      After logging off my Telstra account & then re-log onto my NORMAL Microsoft account, the free 200G appears magically!

    Fantastic, thanks for posting. My Office 365 subscription just expired so I lost the included 1 terabyte Onedrive. All good now.

    To what onedrive account does this link to? My telstra account is @bigpond, which isn't meant to work, but i've redeemed it and it said successful. So how do I make it so that it's attached to a different one drive account?

    Edit: It seems the 200gb was added automatically to the wrong account. Any ideas how to change this?

    Fantastic, just tried it out! Cheers.
