I needed some storage since I'm using a 120 GB solid state hard
drive so I ordered one yesterday.

Seagate Backup Plus 4TB Portable External Hard Drive with
200GB of Cloud Storage & Mobile Device Backup USB 3.0 Model
STDR4000901 (Blue)
$109.99 with promo code ESCFFFL42 untile 11/20/2016

It comes with 200 GB of OneDrive for two years.

Sounds like a good deal. I didn't see where the 200GB cloud storage used OneDrive but I'm sure you are right.

Some goofball asked if it was compatible with a PC. Of course it is but one of the answers said to be aware of this..

"Yes it is. But be careful buying it, the guys in the Newegg warehouse send you a Seagate 4TB regular instead of the 4TB slim... the regular version is $20 cheaper so if you receive the wrong drive, make sure you ask for a refund or the difference in price.

When you click "Specifications" and scroll down a little, it says

"The Backup Plus portable drive includes 200GB of cloud storage with OneDrive for 2 years for added protection and on-the-go access for your most important files.* Back up to the cloud using OneDrive or Seagate Dashboard. Additional cloud connectivity is available for Google Drive and Dropbox, as well as social media backup for your Facebook and Flickr accounts.

* OneDrive service available for 2 years after activation. Must be activated by June 30, 2017. May not be available in all countries."

There was one 4 gig portable drive cheaper, I believe I paid $10 more
to get the OneDrive. The cheaper one didn't have it.

Got it yesterday late. 4 TB = 3.63 TB in real life.
I copied everything from my WD Elements 120 GB
external drive, real slow. It's USB 2. 9 to 11 MBS.
Copied over your OneDrive folder for backup from
my 5900 RPM eSata drive that's getting pretty old.
28 to 33 MBS.
Still got plenty of room:
