As such, every November I spend a good amount of time scouring the Internet. For myself, I mainly look for discounts with providers which I haven’t yet had a chance to try and play around with. But I always check the VPNs I’m familiar with too. If I can get another year’s subscription (or more) to a service I’m happy with at a decent discount, why not I say.
Listed below are some of the best sales I have been able to find this year. I don’t want to lead anyone astray, so I’m only posting Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for providers I’m personally familiar with, trust and who, in my opinion, offer a good product. If you were already considering one of these services, I hope these deals can save you some coin.
PureVPN [75% off]
PureVPN is one of the most popular, and indeed, better VPN providers in the market. They are one of two providers with which I keep an active subscription at all times. PureVPN runs servers in 141 countries (basically everywhere you could ever want to connect), allows P2P, lets you connect up to five devices at once, and is packed with advanced features other providers lack like malware and virus protection, IDS/IPS, ad-blocking and split tunneling.
This year, PureVPN is running a Cyber Week special from November 18 to November 27 that lets you pick up a two-year subscription to their service at a 75% discount (or $2.45 per month). I’ve been with PureVPN for over four years, and it just doesn’t get any cheaper than that.
NordVPN [77% off]
NordVPN is a definite favorite of mine and the second provider with which I always keep an active subscription. Being Panama based and having a strict no-logging policy, no one does privacy better. They are one of the fastest VPNs and run hundreds of high-performance servers across 61 countries. NordVPN allows an industry-leading six simultaneous connections, permits P2P and offer a feature-rich client that in my opinion is one of the cleanest and easiest to use. They also have an industry best 30-day money back guarantee.
For an entire month starting on November 7 and ending on December 7, NordVPN is offering a massive 77% off a three-year subscription (which comes out to $2.75 per month). If memory serves me correctly, that matches the lowest monthly price NordVPN has ever offered.
ExpressVPN [49% off]
ExpressVPN is one of the best-known providers around. Thanks to an intuitively designed client packed with some of the strongest security features you’ll find, they’re both a great service for beginner to get their feet wet and has more than enough power to satisfy the advanced users. As shown by my speed tests, ExpressVPN is also one of the fastest providers. They have servers in 94 countries, and BitTorrent and peer-to-peer file sharing are allowed on all of them.
ExpressVPN’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotion is a 15-month subscription at 49% off. The sale starts on November 20 and ends November 28 at 10 AM GMT.
TunnelBear [58% off]
TunnelBear is an excellent service for beginners. They are super easy to use on any platform and make it their mission to be very open and transparent about policies. While they do log some data, that information is not enough to identify you in any way, thus ensuring total privacy. TunnelBear runs servers in only 20 countries, but the speeds are some of the best around. BitTorrent is, however, not allowed if that is your intended use.
For Black Friday, TunnelBear is offering discounted yearly subscriptions for $49.88 per year. That’s a 58% discount when compared to their monthly pricing. This offer runs from November 17 through November 28 at 9 AM EST.
Invisible Browsing VPN [69% off]
ibVPN is a smaller provider based out of Romania that offers all features you would expect from any top service at a price that few competitors can beat. They provide maximum privacy thanks to their excellent zero-logging policy (and the fact they’re Romania based), peer-to-peer file sharing support, 130+ well-performing servers in 47 countries and a client with just about every feature most of us will ever need.
Invisible Browsing VPN’s promotion is 69% off all their yearly plans. As part of this deal, they’re also throwing in a free one-year license key for Bitdefender Total Security (an anti-malware software) worth $45. This offer is available for three days only, from November 24 to November 27. I have not been able to find the start and end times, but since ibVPN is Romania based, I assume midnight Eastern European Time (UTC+2).
IPVanish [76% off]
IPVanish is generally considered one of the better VPN providers on the market, and I tend to agree. Though they’re US based, a strict no-logging policy ensures your privacy is maintained at all times (i.e. if the authorities come knocking, IPVanish has nothing to give them). They have some speedy servers spread out across 60+ countries, allow unlimited P2P traffic and let you connect up to 5 devices at the same time. They also continuously innovate and push the envelope with features like VPN connection masking and IP cycling.
The IPVanish Cyber Week sale begins on November 22 at 12:01 PM EST and finishes on November 29 at 11:59 AM EST (these times are not typos, both are mid-day). Their deals is a 2-year subscription for less than the regular price of a 1-year subscription (breaks down to a cost of $2.87 per month).
StrongVPN [50% off]
Though they have been around since 1995, StrongVPN is a smaller provider that prefers to remain relatively low key. Thanks to that approach, it doesn’t draw much attention to itself from countries and companies that would usually try to block it (think China or Netflix). Being small means they only offer servers in 22 countries and their performance, while more than good enough, will not blow anyone’s socks off. But, their ability to fly under the radar makes them worth considering depending on your intended use.
For their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deal, StrongVPN is offering their annual plan at a 50% discount. This offer is live at 12:01 AM EST on November 22 and ends at 11:59 PM EST on November 29.
