Box gives Android users 50GB free

Box gives Android users 50GB free
On the heels of its latest release for Android, Box is sweetening up the pot with an offer that is pretty hard to refuse. Between now and March 23, 2012, any Box personal user who downloads Box for Android will receive 50 GB of storage free for life.

For those not familiar with Box, it is a cloud storage service, not to dissimilar from the wildly popular DropBox.  The personal version is free, supports 1 user per account, and allows files sizes from 25 MB to 1 GB. It does need to be noted that, traditionally, file sizes over 25 MB subject the account to additional monthly fees. Another huge plus of the current offer is that file upload limits are being bumped up to 100MB.  Once your files are uploaded to Box, you can access them from any computer, phone, or tablet.

Box is also running a mobile giveaway that gives you the chance to win 20 Samsung Galaxy Tabs and a year of Box Enterprise. Obviously, this campaign is aimed at businesses, because what are you going to do with 20 tablets? Although we’re sure you could figure something out if you had to. With that being said, to enter this contest, you must write, in 200 words or less, why having Galaxy Tabs and Box Enterprise would move your business forward. The final winner will be determined by popular vote, so you’ll have to do a lot of self-promotion to come away with this prize.

Do you have to sign up for a new account, or can you add it to an existing one?

You can add it to an existing account. Just download the app and login with your existing account. According to the FAQ on Box's website, even if you already have the app, just login into it again within the promotion period and they will give you the additional storage.
