Amazon’s Cloud Drive is an online storage locker service that lets anyone upload up to 5GB of files for free. Have an Amazon Prime membership? Last year Amazon launched unlimited photo storage for Prime members.

Want cheap storage, but don’t want to pay $99 per year for a Prime subscription? Now there are two more options: Unlimited Photos and Unlimited Everything.

For $11.99 per year you can sign up for Amazon Cloud Drive Unlimited Photos to upload photos from your phone, tablet, PC, or Amazon Fire device. Photos are stored online and you can view them from just about any device with a web browser or Cloud Drive-related app.

Prime members still get this feature for no extra charge.

Unlimited Everything is just what it sounds like on the tin: Amazon offers as much space as you need for photos, videos, documents, or any other files you care to upload.

You can sign up for an Unlimited Everything Plan for $59.99 per year. There’s no discount for Prime members on that plan.

Amazon is offering 3-month free trials for both Unlimited Photos and Unlimited Everything.

  1. I had doubts about the upload speed, but oh man, it’s incredible. I’m peaking at about 60 mbps which is the max that my internet connection can take. See screenshot.

    This is while uploading large video files (several GB per file).

    Granted, I have an insanely fast internet connection, but the point is that the amazon servers can take it, unlike Google Drive an Dropbox which severely limit my upload.

  2. Why does photo storage cost less than storing non photo files? Actually, the opposite should be true because photos are mostly non-compressible.

  3. Meh. I’ll stick with OneDrive. Unlimited storage and 5 licenses for the full Microsoft Office Suite for $99.

  4. A potential problem with plans like this is upload and download speeds and/or throttling. I’ve got about 500GB of data I’d like to back up, and $60 a year to do it sounds pretty good. But if my upload speed and (in the case of a restore) download speed are severely limited, then I’m not all that interested.

  5. Does Amazon have Android, iOS, desktop web browser, access to their cloud drive?

    To a lesser extant, the FireTV as well?

  6. I really hope that Google will pull a similar service! 60 a year for unlimited storage is awesome!

  7. Well, we can’t be too far from Google lowering all their storage pricing then. Is this even that good a deal today I wonder. Doesn’t Redmond give away unlimited storage with Office 365 or something? And cant’ I get that free for a year when I purchase a tablet for $10 or something?

    1. Office 365 does come with unlimited storage. I doubt you can purchase a tablet for $10, but yes, some tablets come with Office 365 Personal for a year.
      i wonder how Dropbox can survive with these options. I moved away from Dropbox already.

      1. Ditto, although I still have the free dropbox account. While the roll-out of unlimited will take awhile, 10TB is a pretty incredible amount of files to be able to store for $10 a month. You can pick up a tablet with a year of office 365 included for less than $75 now… makes you wonder how ANYONE (not just dropbox) will be able to compete! It’s integrated into windows out of the box too, which makes it much simpler.
