Google Local Guides rewards users with free Google Drive storage upgrade

Are you looking for a way to get free Google Drive storage upgrade? How about free upgrade to 1TB Google Drive storage? Look no further, here is the easiest way:

Google Local Guides is a key component in Google Maps service and it allows users to share their travel experiences by posting reviews, uploading photos, and answering questions of the places they visited. Users can also add new places if they are not showing up in Google Maps, or editing the information of places from Google Maps if the information is not correct. As a direct competitor to Yelp and TripAdvisor, Local Guides offers users some good benefits for their contributions to attract more users to use Local Guides. How does it work? Well, it is quite simple. Each place you review, photograph, add, edit or provide additional information for earns you points in return and you can earn up to 5 points for each place, and you level up as your points grow and each level unlocks different benefit for you.  As the time of writing, there are 5 levels and the benefits of each level are:

Level 1: 0+ points
Get the inside scoop with the Local Guides monthly newsletter.
Join Google-hosted workshops and Hangouts.
In select countries, enter in exclusive contests for Local Guides.

Level 2: 5+ points
Get early access to new Google products and features.
Promote your own meet-ups on the Local Guides calendar.

Level 3: 50+ points
Get noticed with your Local Guides badge in Google Maps.
Connect with other Local Guides in our exclusive Google+ Community.
Lead the conversation by moderating Local Guides community channels.
Receive invites to Google-hosted events in select cities.

Level 4: 200+ points

Be eligible to be featured in Local Guides online channels.
Receive an annual thank you gift.

Level 5: 500+ points
Be a Google insider, testing new products before public release.
Apply to attend our Level 5 Local Guides summit.

As you can see, when you reach the level 4, you can get some pretty cool perks, such as free upgrading your Google Drive storage to 1TB for free for two years, and also get an annual thank you gift (Google does not mention what gift it is).

I just reached the level 4 last week and within two days, I got an email from Local Guides:


Then within another 2 days (instead of 5 weeks as mentioned in the email), I got my free Google Drive upgrade to 1TB.
