If you’re looking for some extra space in your Dropbox account you can double your past and future referral space bonuses by simply activating an .EDU email address on your Dropbox account.

It’s that simple; login to your Dropbox account and visit this link to add your .EDU address. As soon as you verify your address you’ll see double the referral storage volumes (i.e. if you had 2GB of extra space because of referrals you’ll now have 4GB). This doubling effect applies to all future referrals too. It’s an incredible easy way to get extra space if you have access to an academic email address.

Don’t have a Dropbox account yet? Get one here. Thanks for the tip, Alejandro!
