Being a Google Local Guide has its perks. You can not only help people visiting businesses in your local area, but you get some tangible benefits as well, including an offer for online storage for 6 months with Google One.

The offer is being emailed to selected Google Local Guides now, offering access to 100GB of Google One for 6 months normally worth $2.49 per month. Clicking the redeem link in the email takes you to the Google One landing page for the Local Guides offer. You can view the terms and conditions for the offer, but essentially you’ll need a valid form of payment because at the end of the 6 months you’ll automatically be charged for the regular 100GB/month tier which costs $2.49 – though if you don’t want to, you’d be best setting a calendar event to remind you to cancel before it charges you.

It’s one of a number of perks you’ll be offered for being a local guide. Not a bad deal for simply uploading pictures, reviews and answering questions about local businesses you visit. If you’re a local guide, then check your inbox to see if you’ve been offered the deal as well.

I’ve not yet paid for Google One storage, but I’m looking forward to now checking out the Google One app now as well.

Update:
As pointed out by Nick below in the comments, if you’re new to Google One you also get a $7 Google Play credit when you sign up. Not a bad deal at all.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

I’m level 6 and got the offer, though I don’t know what I’d even use G1 for; I only use about 8gb of the standard 15gb Google space as it is; plus once you actually use enough of that space, you pretty much have to then continue with it :/.

Same. I have been paying for 100GB for a while and looking at the comments below, existing paying customers are not eligible. Shame.
