Yesterday we brought a trick for the Dropbox users where they can increase the storage space for their free account by up to 768MB in just few simple steps without requiring any referrals. Today I have another trick for you in case you do already used (or plan to use) referrals to increase the storage space on the free Dropbox account. As you might know normally if you use referrals you get a 250MB bonus storage space for every new user you bring to the Dropbox service. Same 250MB is added to your account if you complete the Get Started tutorial on the Dropbox website.
Actually you can increase this bonus storage space you get for each referral to be 500MB in case you are a student (or a person with an email account on .edu domain)! Dropbox will verify that indeed you are on an academic domain and once the simple verification process is complete you will get 500MB instead of 250MB for each referral. On their website they mentioned only .edu based domains. But good news is that apparently it works with any academic domain (in my experience). This applies to both – the referrals you have already made as well as new referrals that you bring to the table. Say you had brought two users using referrals and hence got 500MB added to your account (in normal scenario). Now after you complete this simple process your storage capacity will immediately increase by another 500MB! Note that this trick applies only to storage space gained by referrals, so it will not work for the storage gained by completing the Get Started tutorial.
You need to visit this page to get started. So let me know if this trick worked for you if your email address belongs to an academic domain other than .edu.
