pCloud Lifetime Special & Mega Offer - Review


pCloud Lifetime Special & Mega Offer: They're willing to offer you lifetime cloud storage for a one-time payment. This is something that not many cloud storages offer, in fact, pCloud might be the only one.

pCloud is a Swiss company that was founded with the purpose of providing cloud storage to personal users and businesses across the globe. It has come far since that point and currently has 7.000.000+ users who actively use pCloud as their primary cloud service. They have various plans that you can take, but two of them stand out.

One downside of owning a cloud storage is the monthly payment. In the case of buying a hard drive, you only have to pay once, and that's it. The same doesn't go for cloud storage. You have to pay monthly fees to enjoy the benefits of having your data stored online. Well, pCloud changed that. You get lifetime cloud storage for a one-time payment. That's kind of cool if you ask me!

Special & Mega - Are They Worth A Shot?

The main question that presents itself here is whether getting one of these offers will pay off in the future. We can approach this question from 2 different sides.


The MathMath

If you go for the Special offer you will receive 500 GB of storage for $175.00. They also offer the Premium plan which costs $4.99 monthly. 

$4.99 x 35 months = $175.00

That means that you will start seeing some savings after about 3 years of using pCloud. In 4 years you will save up $65 and $185 in 6 years.


If you go for the Mega offer you will receive 2000 GB of storage for $350.00. They have an equal plan called Premium Plus which costs $9.99 monthly.

$9.99 x 35 months = $350.00

After about 3 years, you'll basically have a free 2 TB cloud storage.  In 4 years you'll save up $130 and another $120 every year afterwards.


Is Grabbing This Offer Risky?

I am sure a lot of you including myself would be questioning how safe this investment is. After all, we see big companies falling apart and nobody really knows what will happen in 10 years. I will just try to give you my impression on pCloud here. I've reviewed many cloud storages and none as of yet managed to beat pCloud. pCloud is one of the best cloud storages and there's no sign of this company going underground. They're rapidly increasing their user base and have received almost a million users in the past year. They're also a company that listens to its users and tries to implement whatever it is we need.

pCloud has great security, fast down/upload speeds, it's easy to use and has great support.

If I am sure about anything or was ever sure about anything is that pCloud will only progress in the future. Even if in some crazy scenario pCloud manages to die in 5 years you'll still end up saving money with this offer. Although I am sure that will not happen.


Long-term Thinking

Cloud service, in general, will only expand in the future. It's something that has already expanded a lot in the past 10 years. It's being used by personal users and companies all over the world. If you would like to see the benefits and have doubts about owning a cloud storage check out this article.

    It’s kind of hard for me to let go of my external hard drive. I have 2 TB there already. But I also don’t want to get behind with technology.

    $350 sounds a bit much for me to pay all at once, but I do understand the security features you explain in some of your other comments.

    Except for being able to retrieve my data without any kind of external connection, what other advantages does pCloud / cloud storage provide over the external hard drive?

    I will be waiting for your answer. Thanks.

    Hey, appreciate the information on pCloud’s Lifetime Special nd Mega Offer. I actually like the idea of someone else handling the physical space of storage as opposed to an external hard drive cluttering up my desk. I may worry about security though. Do they ensure that the files you store are secure and maybe even encrypted? Thanks again for sharing!

      Hey,

      If you go with their Crypto clan your files get encrypted client-side which means nobody has access to them.

    Hello Dejan,

    This is a great page – thank you. My one concern with starting using pCloud is the following comment left on another website as a con for pCloud (as opposed to a pro). They wrote, “CON pCloud will delete all your data if you Hard Reboot your phone. Do not do a hard reboot on your cell phone while using pCloud.. After you do a hard reboot and sign back in to what was your account will now be empty, with the contents deleted. Your Data will be gone. pCloud will does not inform users about it.”

    I’d be grateful if you could let me know your advice about this please. It sounds worrying…

    Hey I have been thinking about getting more storage. I think it is so cool that they are offering their deals at one payment only! I don’t think I would ever be able to use 2 TB in a lifetime lol. It would be better for me to get the 500 GB if anything. Do you think that they will offer more options in the near future?

      Hello Kendrick,

      That’s an interesting question. One can only assume that as time moves forward hard drives and price per GB will only decrease over time. Who knows what data limits cloud storage providers will offer in 20 years. But if we’re looking at the short-term picture I think they will stay with what they offer now or maybe make slight increases over the next years.

    Interesting and objective review of the pCloud services. As a user of cloud services for many years, I personally did not find something outstanding… But the post is very convincing and I am planning to try it. From my perspective, the payment is not an issue… I believe that company does not want to deal with monthly payments – it is a real hassle. But the list of technical advantages provided can trigger the interest. Yes, it is hard to predict what changes in storage services we’ll have next 10 years, so it is better to use what is the best in the market today. Thank you for sharing information.

    The Crypto drive should be included in these plans and not sold as an extra.

      Hello,
      Well, the crypto plan is also separated in their monthly and yearly plans. It’s a decision that they made and I agree that it would be nice to have it included within the regular plans.

      Sure,
      125 U.S. dollars is about 105 euros under the current conversion rate and 250 U.S. dollars is about 209 euros.

    Hi, Dejan!
    I consider the Special offer not suitable for me. I think that 500GB is too little, considering today’s (and future) storage needs. The Mega Offer is better, but how does this compare with Dropbox, Google or Microsoft offers?

    Also, Do the mobile apps offer photo and video backup?

    Thanks!

      Hello Marios,

      None of the cloud storages above actually offer a lifetime offer, which is also why pCloud is unique in a way. If you would like to compare these cloud storages just have a look at this: Top 10 Cloud Storage Providers 2017.

      I’ve done reviews on all of the listed cloud storages. Hopefully, you’ll find them useful. Let me know if you have any questions!

    Hello Dejan,

    Thank you for this awesome article on cloud storage.

    I have a really big data base because I’m working on so many things so 2017 is the year that I started with Dropbox and Google photo and I really love it. I’m a newbie in this industry but man the online storages helped me already so much.

    Like I said I am a real newbie in this industry so I have a question for you: I use online storages myself since this year, but let say I would go for Pcloud would you still recommend me to have a hard disk for backup? because you never know what might happen.

    Thanks in advance.

      Hello Mitchell,

      The whole point of having data stored in the cloud is to get rid of your hard drive and to be able to access it at all times from wherever you are. I personally trust pCloud due to their redundancy systems which guarantee that your files won’t get lost, overwritten or damaged in any way. 

      It’s up to your own preference really. If it makes you sleep easier at night, keep a hard drive. Otherwise I would say it’s not needed.

    pCloud seems like a very nice option when it comes to online storage. This review has helped me know there’s such a product which is so beneficial. The technology is now changing from hard disks to cloud storages which is far much better and without limitations. I’ve lost many documents on flash disks in the past after they crush or they get lost and I’ve been looking for an option.

    I think this cost is not on the higher side compared with the service one gets from this product. Just one concern though. What is the guarantee of security of my files in pCloud? How am I sure that the founders won’t have access to my private information stored in pCloud?

      Hello pmbaluka,

      The security that is implemented within pCloud is one of the best in the cloud storage world. If you get their pCloud Crypto plan it means nobody will have access to your files, even the pCloud administrators. They’re using client-side encryption within pCloud Crypto plan which means that every crypto key that is generated for your files isn’t stored with them, but with you. That means only you can access your files. They have also given a challenge to the hackers of the world for $100.000 to break their encryption and nobody managed to do it in a 6 month period. Many world-renown universities participated in that challenge as well.

      I myself have no issue with trusting them my files. They take care of them on privacy and mechanical level with good redundancy system.

    Hi Dejan

    Thanks for letting us know about pCloud, I have been using Onedrive for a while now and it integrates quite well with my windows 10 machines but with a lot of the revelations coming out about data security I’ve become more concerned about using US companies for my cloud storage.
    Are there any privacy benefits to using a Swiss company compared to a US one?

    Thanks Again

      Hello Dominic,

      Well, it depends on the cloud service. pCloud is very strict regarding your privacy, especially if you pick the pCloud Crypto plan which encrypts your data clien-side meaning nobody but you will be able to access those files. Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hi Dejan, thank you for your article. I am an avid believer in cloud storage and been using the free versions of Google Drive and Dropbox. Its time for me to shop for a paid version and am thinking of going with Google Drive. Can you do a short comparison between pCloud and GDrive? You also mentioned in your article that it doesn;t use local hard drive space (under the Pros section). Does that mean all the files are just located online? How can I access the files on pCloud if I am not connected? Thank you in advance for your response!

      Hello Steven,

      Well the main few differences that I see between pCloud and Google Drive are privacy, security, way of storing data and usability. pCloud’s Crypto plan garuntees client-side encryption which means nobody but you is able to access your files. That’s not the case with Google Drive. pCloud also saves all of your data online and doesn’t use up local hard drive space. Regarding your question – You can decide which folders you want available to you offline as well and they will be. Google Drive’s one quality is the connection between all the services and the usage of google documents. I would suggest you take a look at both of the reviews and decide which one suits you best.

    I guess the time is fast approaching when I have to learn about cloud storage; especially after reading some of the comments by readers, this has been a back to back experience being introduced to cloud storage and this one seems attractive especially the life time membership. My technical skills are still limited but my interest is growing.

    How hard is it to use pCloud if you’re new to cloud storage? Do you have any posts that explain how cloud storage works?

    Until now, I hadn’t really considered buying a cloud based storage service, but pCloud sounds like a great deal. I’m all about one-time payments over monthly. Also, we’ve experienced losing tons of precious pictures and videos when one of our external hard drives was destroyed. It’s an awful feeling! I think the peace of mind with a cloud based system would be great.

      Hello Ryan,

      Well, I think we all experience that at some point. I had the same thing happening to me. The whole picture collection of my childhood was stored on my internal drive and the drive got corrupted. That was one awful feeling. Fortunately, when I brought it to the computer shop they managed to extract all the data from it so I didn’t lose anything. That was a relief…

      pCloud is definitely a secure cloud storage, with your data being saved on 15 different racks or servers. You should check it out. And this special lifetime offer that they have is pretty amazing too.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Dejan,
    What’s the difference between ICloud storage and pcloud storage? I have taken a lot of pictures. I am looking for somewhere safe online to store my pictures. Which one would you recommend? Is one more costly than the other? Does pcloud have a monthly fee or just a one time fee?
    Thank you,
    Caryn

      Hello Caryn,

      iCloud is a very basic cloud storage and when compared with other cloud storages, it fails to deliver on many areas. I would only be using iCloud in case I would be really entrenched in Apple’s ecosystem.

      pCloud is cheaper then iCloud and offers more sharing, file retrieving options with a better security system.

      With pCloud you can either go with a one time payment which was described above and gives you lifetime storage or you can choose to pay monthly or yearly(20% discount). Check out the full review of pCloud here.

      I would definitely pick pCloud over iCloud.

      Hopefully that helps you out and if you have any questions I am here to help.

    Thanks for introducing this service. I have never heard of pCloud but from your post they seem to be reputable company and the service seems like a bargain. Like you said I also have doubts about what happens if the company does close down. Even though I may be saving money already if I use it for more than a year, I guess it is also about the data security and if so I will still need to have a backup copy on a different server or locally.

      Hello Daniel,

      I do believe that your files are safe with pCloud. They are protected from unautharized access by client-side encryption and with a redundancy system against hardware failure. That means your files are being backed up multiple times on their servers. If you would like to know more about the security of pCloud check out the full review – Review.

      Thanks for stopping by.
