Update: As it turns out, this offer applies to recently-purchased Chromebook purchases too. If you have not yet claimed your free Google Drive storage, you might want to head over to the goodies page to redeem your 1TB right away.


If you're like me, you keep quite a bit of the files you interact with on your mobile devices saved on Google Drive. The service has gotten spiffier over the years, and Google has done its best to make interacting with the storage feel as though you're tinkering with something saved locally.

When I bought a Chromebook Pixel, it came with 1TB of Google Drive storage for three years. With the price of the service at the time, that was a savings of more than the cost of the laptop, which was and remains an expensive piece of tech. Google Drive's price has since dropped, and now the company is willing to give away 1TB of storage space with the purchase of any new Chromebook this holiday season, no matter how inexpensive or where you buy it from.

Like the previous 100GB offer, users get to have the free storage for two years. When it's all said and done, you're looking at a savings of $240.

If you want to complement your Android usage with some extra cloud storage, picking up a cheap laptop running Google's operating system may now be the most affordable way to do so. Just be sure to redeem the offer before January 1st, 2015.
