Get one year of unlimited cloud storage from Amazon for just $5

For just $5, you get one year of unlimited Amazon cloud storage, which includes photos, videos, and documents
November 27, 2015

Amazon has a lucrative offering on unlimited cloud storage, which is a part of their Black Friday deals. For just $5, you get one year of unlimited cloud storage, which includes photos, videos, and documents. That’s not all, if you wish to store media content only, the price drops to $1 for one year.


Many users of Microsoft OneDrive might find this deal very attractive. This is because Microsoft was providing unlimited cloud storage to Office 365 users, which it recently downgraded to 1 TB. Meanwhile, the free tier gives you only 5 GB of storage before you’re asked to upgrade. Google Drive allows users to store 15 GB of files before slapping a price tag.

The explanation given by Microsoft for removing its unlimited storage perk was that a few users were taking advantage of the unlimited storage perk to upload entire movie collections, among other things, thereby using nearly 14,000 times the amount of space consumed by an average user.

Coming back to Amazon’s amazing $5 deal, the regular price of their unlimited storage tier is $54.99. A solid $50 in savings, thanks to this Black Friday deal. Talking about the $1 deal, apart from unlimited photos and videos, users can also store up to 15 GB of documents under the plan.

Amazon’s exciting offers on cloud storage are bound to expire soon, so we suggest that you grab them while they are hot.
