Our first-ever, special offer for free users: 25GB for $30/yr

by with 16 comments

EXPIRED: This offer is now closed, as of Friday 11/16 @ midnight CT.

We heard you!

Normally, the smallest amount of storage you can buy with SpiderOak is 100GB for $100 a year. But a lot of our free users have said they would upgrade to an annual plan if they could get only 25GB because that is all they need, opposed to buying 100GB.

SO, this will be our first time to try it out. For only the next 3 days, you can upgrade to a 25GB plan from a free account for only $30/year.

Use this promotion code to upgrade your free account: TWENTYFIVE

(If you aren’t yet a SpiderOak user, but want to take advantage of this deal: sign up here, download and install the software, click ‘Buy More Space’ and use the promo code above.)

We’re excited to give it a try and see what the reception is like, so be sure to nab this deal and please help us spread the word until then. The offer ends on Friday Nov. 16 @ midnight CT.

Let us know what you think!

  1. @Azl Unfortunately, students won't get half off, but we hope you take advantage of the offer or share it with others.

  2. Is that on top of the free space that I have built up over the years from old friend referrals and quiz upgrades ?.
    I currently have 21GB so what happens 1, after I upgrade using this offer and 2, if I only use for one year paid what would I drop back down to ?.

  3. Hi @Tux9,

    Great questions. Firstly, you will be able to keep your storage you have gathered from referrals and contests. However, the only thing that will not cross over to your purchased plan is the 2GB. This is because the 2GB plan is its own separate plan.

    Secondly, if you were to downgrade later on, you will be able to keep your originally earned storage. If you run into any issues, feel free to email us any time. Thanks!

  4. Just tried to use the Promo code but it doesn't seem to be accepting it. After clicking update I get the same screen with the same code pre-filled but no option for the 25GB plan :(

  5. Potentially premature, but what happens after 12 months? Will the $30 for 25GB price still be available then?

  6. I've been lucky with the referrals so my free account was at 53GB. I think I'm only using 11 of those but… I love the service and I want to support the company so I got this upgrade. $100 was a little steep to express my support when I didn't need it. :) Thanks!

  7. @Andy – Make sure you are entering the code exactly how it is above and try again. If you are still having issues, please email us and we'll get you taken care of.

    @Chik and @UZ – Once you are on this plan, you can continue to pay each year to keep it. :-)

    @Eric G – Wow! You have certainly been active in spreading the word so we are very excited to see this. In addition, we really appreciate your support so a big THANK YOU from the SpiderOak team.

  8. It's a shame that the email announcing this three day offer was only sent out more than a day after the offer had already started, without any indication that this was the case. So by the time I tried to sign up it had already expired. :-(

  9. Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Very sad. I may even switch to another service for this. Why 25GB isn't a perm plan is beyond me.

  10. I would have also signed up if it was extended for a few more days. By the time I got the info, the offer had already expired.

  11. PLEASE extend the deal! By the time the email got to me, the offer expired! Not sure how many other responses you got for purchase, but I'd love another shot at this one! It's a perfect size, and a great price! I love the SpiderOak service!

  12. I double andy's post, this is exactly what happened to me. So, I thought it is a high traffic time, but I tried again later when I received the notification via twitter that it is a few hours to go but to no avail. Thank you for your consideration.
