How to get more Dropbox space for free, but not from me

So my special dropbox offer from Sunday proved pretty popular – and sadly all the spots are full. I’m learning about google ads. And it’s really hard to juggle a bunch of advertising campaigns all using the same keywords so that the love is fairly shared around equally.

But anyway. My google credit is almost gone. Some people have told me they’ve got referrals. If you haven’t – and you were one of the people who gave me your referral link, let me know. And I’ll see if I can tweak things slightly.

But anyway. Here are some tips if you missed out, which I only read about today as I was ferreting around for more ways to boost my space.

And, as a better bonus, for those people who are currently students, or employed by an educational institution, or in the possession of an alumni .edu email address – you can double the bonus you get for a successful referral by visiting – they’ll even double the space they’ve given you for previous referrals. Which would be great. If QTC gave its students .edu addresses.

If you don’t Dropbox – check it out via this link: (which will give me a little bit more space).
