Which cloud storage service do digit members uses (if any)?

:facepalm: Their site actually redirects direct pricing link page to plans page. On the plans/pricing features page, click on "purchase now" & in next page you will see the option to fill all the details & there at the bottom you can see actual plan charges in drop down options.

Okay, so that's where the plan details are.

The individual plan D is 2 TB for Rs. 199. Assuming that's Rs. 199 for a year for 2 TBs, I'd say that's a good option, for storing non-important stuff. A 2 TB HDD would cost around 5-6k.

The same thing occurred to me, but on their plans page, they are showing Rs. 360 for one year, so maybe they really are offering one year 2 TBs for Rs. 199. The only way to be sure would be to buy it.

Rs.30/month plan changes to Rs.360/year, same logic will apply to other plans.

Alright, so October 2021 is here. And Amazon sale is ongoing.
I realized that Microsoft have increased the annual Microsoft 365 (6 user) plan. Now instead of Rs 5299, it costs Rs 6199.
Hence, the discounted price on Amazon is also coming out to be Rs 4649. (Although the page is still showing old price, but on Flipkart it's updated).

After 10% ban discount final purchase price would be, Rs 4184.

So, the price history comes to be:
Sep 2019: Rs 3419
Oct 2020: Rs 3842 (up 12.3%)
Oct 2021: Rs 4184 (Up 8.9%)

So, Microsoft's cloud have it's own inflation rate that is beating the market. :p

Also on my Services and Subscription page, I can see that the next billing date is 1st May 2022. It should be November this year. I don't know where the extra months come from!

So I checked the order history page, and I saw an order which happened on Sep 30, 2021. But I didn't place this order. I don't know from where this order came from. But I can see that next due date is 1st May 2022. I tried to ask from customer care, but they don't know it too.

Screenshot of this order attached. Can someone confirm if they are seeing it too? Or am I going crazy? :confused:

I have seen a similar order in my account but that was because MS support added 1 month extra to my subscription after I chatted with them to explain that I want to activate my office 365 a month later so that I would be within subscription when the next year amazon/flipkart sale start. I am guessing maybe MS is giving this "bonus months" to subscribers who are not using much space(I am using around 3TB out of 6TB currently).

Btw I got 4 MS office 365 annual keys for around 1200 each courtesy of a MS employee I found on another forum a few months back :)

Enjoy the extra months
Well I waned to know the reason for them being so generous. My hunch was that Microsoft must be compensating for some law suit occurred due to some data breach. But I am not sure now. Corporates are not generous due to no reason.

Well I am using less than 2 TB, so are they compensating for that?

Whoa! Are you sure it's legit?

1.2k per key for a personal 1TB is the normal deal IMO. With sales, you can bring it down to 700 per key (4200 for a family pack).

My O365 is managed by another guy, so can't see the subscription end date.

All MS employees get this option of buying MS products at exclusive discounted prices which they can share with their friends & family by inviting them to MS store with their own employee friend family pass.

These are the details:

I got 4 MS Office 365 6 users 6TB family pack keys for around 1200 each by asking that MS employee to send me 4 invite links to 4 different email accounts of mine. He gets $5 benefit for each friend family person he invites who make a purchase so it was win win for both of us(he got $5*4=$20 benefit for his next purchase from store while I got four office 365 family pack for 1200 each).

I think I should start reconnect with my college friends who work at MS.

Or better yet, ask them for their college mail id if they don't use. And register yourself an office365 email, (u get 1 tb for free) and ul on google drive.

So would be able to use these 4 invites in 4 successive years, or is there some deadline, so needs to be used within 1 year or two?
Asking since a friend of you might need one soon (aka me :p).

I don't think there is an expiry date for keys purchased(you first need to redeem the invite link which does have a expiry date though of a few days I think or if the inviter revokes the invitation link before you could redeem, after clicking on invite link you can create an acc on that exclusive store inside which you see softwares at discounted price) at least within a year & in any case you can stack the subscriptions up to 5 years for office 365 so just keep adding keys to your current office 365 subscription to keep increasing its validity by 1 year every time until it reaches 5 years. I already added 2 keys to extend my current subscription till 2023 & will use remaining 2 keys later this year. :)
