Box is Offering 25GB of Free Cloud Storage For New Sign-ups


Need some more cloud storage? How about 25GB, for free? Box, a leader in cloud storage among Dropbox and other top names, is hosting a special promo for all new sign-ups. To take advantage of this deal, all you need is an email address and Internet access. For anyone hoping to upgrade their account, you’re out of luck. Only new accounts are supported.

And once you have your account set up, go grab the Android app here.

Sign up here.

Cheers Scott and Nick S!

  • MzFree

    I signed up and only received 5GB

  • Don’t fall for it. Guess what you can do with your free storage? Just about nothing.

    Seriously. Look at how limited their free plan is compared to other cloud services.

  • cenobite

    I find it rather frustrating when existing users are left out of similar promotions. I guess I’m the jerk for using your service for the past few years.

  • I got 50G before

  • flosserelli

    Sweet. I registered all of my throwaway email addresses. You can never have enough cloud space.

  • Good News For Android Lovers , 25 Gb is a huge space for free.

  • Kenny B

    Only if this storage is private and will never be shared with any 3rd party under any circumstance. Its my info, or my privacy. I’ve read that certain cloud systems copy and transfer all stored info to a database under gov control. This is the only downside I see with the N4, it forces me to join the cloud in order to be able to keep string info.

    • That’s why many choose CloudMe as their European sync-n-share storage alternative. It’s based in Sweden.

  • If you sign up through a google apps store, they give you 50GB and then offer to let you invite folks on your domain to have 50GB too. It’s. great deal except that their syncing isn’t as good as Dropbox and sometimes opened files can have issues when Box tries to sync them. So I have gone back to Dropbox who also gave me 50GB with my GSIII.

    Too bad they don’t have a Linux client. At least a command line one would be nice.

  • Cedric Wilmore

    Why isn’t it showing 75GB instead of the 50GB

    • JoshGroff

      It goes off of the larger of the two promotions, they don’t stack.

  • Cedric Wilmore

    I got 25GB when I signed up as a new user and when I downloaded the appi got 50GB

  • kane

    Yep they gave you 50 gig to sign up with any Android device like a year of 2 ago but gave file tiny file sizes. TiBu has integration with it but think even has files larger than its limit

  • Sean Bello

    don’t plan on using it anytime soon, but hell if I don’t sign up for 25gb right now lol

  • Ray

    when you sign up and than log in using your Nexus 4 you will be upgraded to 50GB for free. I dont know if is for all LG devices since I only have a Nexus 4.

  • BaltiCzar

    Signed up but only received 5gb of storage. What gives?

  • greg shubert

    I am there now.. Says 5g. Doesn’t say anything about 25…?


      I just the 25 a few minutes back…

  • abhisahara

    1 User

    25 GB of web storage

    250 MB file size limit

    • I saw the 250MB upload limit as well – FAIL

      • JoshGroff

        That’s why I use Dropbox as well.

  • Bionicman

    does this also have the 100mb limit? i have 50gb on BOX but it doesn’t really help me except for docs and mp3’s 🙁

    • kindrudekid

      i thought the limit is 2gb? no wonder i cannot upload my 1 gig encrypted container

      • ERIC REED

        I thought I saw it was 250mb’s…

        • kindrudekid

          ahhh those cheesy TOS
          there is paid personal and paid business and enterprise

          the limit is 1 gb for paid personal 25gb storage
          and 2 gb for paid personal 50 gb storage, their comparison page is cheeky!

    • I have 50 GBs there as well. But no ‘multiple’ download support, sync is pathetically slow, file size limit. Totally useless.

      • I have multiple download support .. they recently added it for people were grandfathered in with the 50gb acct

        • Ahh… didn’t know that. Checked just now and sure enough, it’s there now. Thanks for letting me know. And… Good boy, Box. 🙂
          And I read on Carbon backup discussion threads they ‘Box’ has best in class upload/download speeds. But that never worked for me. Box sync (via the desktop client) always runs very slow for me. Just me or anyone else?

          • No issues for me .. Box and Dropbox are very comparable to me. I havent noticed much difference in speed or features. Just comes down to personal preference.

    • cloud storage is not a movie storage facility. So, i think it doesn’t work that day, i am afraid.

      • Bionicman

        maybe so, but i’d be using BOX a lot more if I wasn’t so limited (probably would pay for it too). and I’d be getting more of my friends and family members to sign up as well. 250mb (corrected) is just too small of a file size limit.

    • 250 MB file size limit


    How long does the 25GB work? Does it expire or whatever like Dropbox?

    • JoshGroff

      AFAIK, their promos are for as long as you hold the account.

  • Kyle

    You can never have too much cloud storage!

  • Jared Carter

    somehow i got 50gb from a while ago when i signed up… I don’t remember if they were doing a promotion for a time or if it was just for early adopters. I havent really ever used it but just logged in and BAM…. 50gb…. can’t complain!

    I have gotten all the dropbox promo’s and stuff too and have about 80gb’s on it but that runs out in 3 years or something i think…. i dunno, so much cloud storage, necessary for my DNA!!!!!!

    • Jared, if you have LG or Sony (Ericsson) Smart Phone and if you register with box app, you are entitled to receive 50GB in default. Also, if you register with your company email and can send your co-worker under same domain can give 50GB box account for free as well.

    • peeyourownpants

      someone at work sent me this too. and my old accounts appear to have been upgraded from what i remember being 5gb to 50gb also…
      too bad it caps uploads at 250mb

  • As much as I love Google Drive, Box is much faster!

  • Austin Warren

    Sweet. Verizon screwed me out of 50gb with DropBox. This works! Thanks

  • Thomas

    Sweet !!! You know we cheap Android folks love free stuff.

    • Yeah, figured some you Android folk could use some free stuff!

      • Thomas

        I see what you did there ;).

        • michael arazan

          Sad how corporations use propaganda to make people think FREE is a four letter word, well, it is, but, you know what I mean = P

  • mustbepbs

    How supported is Box now? I got their last promo for 25GB and found that a lot of apps didn’t support it for cloud storage.

    • Booyah

      It’s becoming more and more supported. I primarily use mine for Titanium Backup. What apps are you thinking of specifically?

  • Booyah

    Great for TiBu backups. It’s quicker than Drive and DropBox.
