UPDATE on December 6: Amazon listed this yesterday as the “Deal of the Day” and said it was a one-day sale. However, I see this morning that Amazon is still offering it at https://goo.gl/GL0jOo. I have no idea how long the sale will last.
As I mentioned in an article last week, “Dropbox is a very popular service amongst genealogists.” This morning, Amazon announced a “flash sale” on Dropbox Pro that is only good for today (Monday, December 5): Pay $99 for a one year subscription to Dropbox Pro, including one terabyte (1,000 gigabytes) of online file storage, and receive a $50 Amazon gift card.
That is a great deal, especially as I expect the gift card will come in handy this holiday season. However, the offer is good only for new customers or for existing Dropbox customers who are using the free (2 gigabytes) service. The offer is not applicable for existing Dropbox Pro or Business accounts, such as my account. Otherwise, I would have signed up for this offer in a heartbeat.
The offer provides you with 1 terabyte in the cloud to store all of your stuff for a full year. The offer will expire at the end of the day today at the very latest, possibly earlier, so don’t waste any time.

Disclaimer: As always, my mention of any advertising campaign is not an endorsement of the items on sale or the company making the offer. In some cases, I may not have tried the device or service myself. I simply want to make newsletter readers aware of a potential money saving opportunity.
However, in this case, I am a user of Dropbox Pro and am very pleased with the service.
