Can't get 25GB promotion with relevant HP device

Can't get 25GB promotion with relevant HP device

Hi, I just purchased a HP pavilion but I am not getting the free 25GB promotion.  Can a Dropbox team member contact me to resolve this issue? I've done the required steps: I've got dropbox synced on the pc with the relevant account and I've finished the get started guide.  Thanks

No, its only possible if its preinstalled - thats so they can bill HP accordingly. 

The only way to get it now would be a factory reset and to use the default preinstalled Dropbox app on your device.

Have you made sure you've met the T&C's as per https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/space-storage/hp-promotion ?

 

Especially around things like not having used a Promo before and claiming within the time period

Hi Mark,

 

Thanks for your reply. I am an existing user of Dropbox. I definitely met the purchase criteria as I only bought the HP Pavilion 3 weeks ago. I don't recall I have any Dropbox promotion previously regarding new devices however I did get 0.5 GB storage increase every time someone accepts my invitation.

 

Regards,

Michael

Have you used the preinstalled Dropbox software that looks like the image on https://help.dropbox.com/accounts-billing/space-storage/hp-promotion ? If you didnt its not valid 😞

Hi Mark,

 

No I didn't. I installed Dropbox by downloading from Chrome. It might be why I did't get it because the promotion worked for my son's and my wife's PC. I bought 3 of the same PC at the same time. Do you think it's possible that Dropbox can manually add the free 25GB for this first year? I can prove the HP purchase.

 

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Mark,

I bought HP Pavillion 4 days ago and there was NO preinstalled dropbox. Today HP showed notification about this offer. I clicked on the notification and it asked to sign in/sign up. I signed up and then dropbox was installed. Now I am unabled to get 25 GB.

I just bought an HP Envy laptop and I completed the steps for the promotion but the 25GB space has not been added to my account. I can't seem to log a ticket since all I can do is either chat with the bot that doesn't understand this or it asks me to come to the community.

MarijFr
Helpful | Level 6

Hi, I recently bought a new HP computer that I registered. I would get 25GB space for a year in my Dropbox account. Till now that didn't happen. I contacted HP but they told me I have to contact Dropbox. Can you tell me when you are going to add that extra space.
Thanks Marij Franken
