Conversations about life & privacy in the digital age

What are friends for?

It is good to have friends. They are there when you need a helping hand, a shoulder to cry on, or even to watch your dog for a long weekend. As we think about our friends at SpiderOak, it dawned on us that friends deserved quite a bit given all they do for us.

Therefore, to honor our friends near and far, we are increasing the amount of space users can obtain through the SpiderOak Refer-A-Friend program to…

50 GBs of FREE Storage for Life!

So here is how it works: if you refer a friend who signs up for a SpiderOak account then you and your friend will receive an additional free GB of space. Easy.

The SpiderOak Refer-A-Friend program is open to both free and paying users so everyone can earn an additional 50 GBs of free storage. You can visit our Refer-A-Friend page now and get started immediately: Refer-A-Friend Signup.

As always, we are eager to hear your thoughts and ideas so please don’t hesitate to pass them along. Remember – having friends is a wonderful gift & should always be celebrated.

    Thanks SpiderOak! Top notch quality and service, plus a wealth of information about how the encryption process works on your website.

    That's what makes you the best. (^_^)

    Great, thanks!
    An idea: add a section in the account settings in the client and/or on the website where the crediting of referrals to one's account is tracked, or at least send an email when a referral is credited. this would make it possible/easier to keep track of referrals.

  7. taltos says:

    ah, sorry, disregard that, emails get sent indeed, that must have slipped my mind. :-/

  8. Simp says:

    Great! anyone reading this feel free to use my referral =)

    Absolutely awesome stuff SpiderOak!

    Have been in love with Dropbox for too long – your product is definitely the one for me and I am so glad I have found it! Secure and safe. We like a LOT!

    Already got a couple of referrals too! :D

    SpiderOak lets me easily backup, sync, share, remotely access and store all my data. I can add as many different computers and drives to a single account so all my data can live in a central location. The application has been working for me very nicely. You can sign up if you use the download link below and we will both receive an additional free 1 GB of storage. And you can also feel free to refer as many friends as you like.
    P.S. If you use the WORLDBACKUPDAY promo code you can gain 6 GB in total.

  26. HHH says:

    It says you can earn up to 50 Gb, but when you go to the Refer-A-Friend page, it say you can earn up to 10 Gb

    Which is the correct one?
