    Out of the blue I received a OneDrive message asking if I'd like the 100gb free for two years, which I wasn't expecting to be honest and it was a big surprise.Presumably it's a deal on new galaxy phones.
    Very nice indeed, so I went for it. I already had 30Gb free because I'd grabbed that before MS reduced the free quota a couple of years ago.
    Clearly I'll need to subscribe after that time, but that's a heck of a lot of storage and I once had a similar deal with Dropbox on the Galaxy S3 in 2013. The good thing is that they don't take the storage away; you just can't add to it after the free period.

    It's a deal on new Galaxy devices since like the Note 2. When I first got that, I was given a 2 year 100GB free on OneDrive. 2 years later I got an S7 Edge (Note 3 was out when I got the Note 2 brand new for a sweet deal lol) and it offered me that and extended the 100GB. Basically if you stay with Samsung, you get 100GB free on OneDrive as long as you're rocking a Samsung, at least as long as they're still partners with MS.

    Open the OneDrive app, go to settings, then redeem.

    I got the free 100GB when I registered my S8+ and set up Samsung Pay.

    You should have gotten 1TB. Or did you not opt for that plan?

    You're right. I can't see 'redeem' shown in settings on my phone either.
    This bonus came out of the blue for me as I knew nothing about it and I can only assume that it was as a result of registering my S8 and logging into the Samsung Members app, although I'm simply guessing, but it is a little coincidental.
    I'd been looking into the Oreo Beta (not related to this) and it was suggested that signing up to Samsung Members may initiate the beta, but it didn't and got this instead.
    Anyway, perhaps signing up may help you or even uninstalling OneDrive then reinstalling. Not sure if you need a Microsoft (Hotmail etc) email account or if any old email will do.
    Oh, I found this on the Microsoft site:
    "If you missed opportunity at first launch:
    1. Sign out of all OneDrive bundled applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive);
    2. Go to 'settings', 'applications', then 'OneDrive', and 'Clear data' and 'Clear cache'.
    Worked for me after relaunching OneDrive."

    You have to install from Galaxy App Store. Then wait for a bit, like a couple of days.

    Bizarre, when I took my phone off the charger just now there was a full screen message offering me the 100gb free for 2 years. I did not accept since I already have 1TB for free. I've had the phone since 3 months...

    I never got this either, registered, installed onedrive, its been 2 months now with the phone. Would be nice to get my 100gb back. I had 1 year of 100gb when I got my Windows Phone and it was nice to know I wouldn't ever have to worry about it. I still have 30gb though. I know you used to get bonus space on Windows Phone when you enabled auto photo upload through your photo app. Mine is already enabled but could be something else to try for others.

    Hi Everybody.
    I formatted my daughter's Galaxy Tablet and it offered me the 100 GB. In order to redeem them I followed these steps, that may help you all.

    1. I actualized the preinstalled version of One Drive to the 5.2 version and it appeared the redeem option within the configuration.
    2. I configured my actual One Drive account but after trying to redeem at the end it pop up a message for 2 secs that I had 5 GB of storage.
    3. I realized that Microsoft wasn't giving me the 100 GB because I redeemed 100 GB 2.5 years ago with my Galaxy S6.
    4. Then I created a brand new account on One Drive.
    5. I erased the data of the application so it came clean when opening it.
    6. I started installing again the One Drive App, updated it, and went to configuration to Redeem the 100 GB and a message pop up a message for 2 secs that I had 100 GB of storage.
    7. Now I am in the process to erase the One Drive on every PC to synchronize my new account to it. When doing this the data on the PC is not lost and it will be synchronized all again in the new account because you already left the folder it will use to synchronize.

    Hope this helps

    I got the offer several times and did not accept. Until I ran out of space.

    Just go in to the one drive app in your android phone. Search for Me to go into your profile. Once in there search for settings. and you will see the "Apply 100 GB Samsung Offer"

    Yes I see it. But doesn't apply the 100gb if you already used it in the past unfortunately!
