Google Drive for iOS recently was updated to support Apple’s in-app purchases for monthly and annual storage subscriptions. What does this mean? Those who fund their iTunes account with discounted 15-20% iTunes cards will be able to save on these storage subscriptions for the first time.
Normally, prices for Google Drive storage are available for $2.79/month for 100GB, $13.99/month for 1TB and $139.99/month for 10TB (there are more expensive options available).
If you fund your Google Drive subscriptions with discounted 20% iTunes cards (from Costco’s period sales), the prices work out to:
- $2.25/month for 100GB ($26.80 annually)
- $11.21/month for 1TB ($134.52 annually; Google lets you prepay annually on the web for 17% off, too)
- $22.41/month for 2TB ($268.92 annually)
- $112.01/month for 10TB ($1334.12 annually)
Currently Staples has 15% off iTunes cards until August 29th. A 20% off sale from Costco probably will appear sometime this fall.
Other savings possible with these discounted iTunes cards funding your Apple account? Any digital purchase from Apple, such as apps, games, music, subscriptions (Netflix, NHL, etc) and more.
Google Drive launched five years ago, and since then prices have come down a lot in price (1TB used to be $49.99 USD per month). In July, Google Backup and Sync was launched for Mac and Windows users, allowing users to backup files and photos to Google Drive.
