Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday VPN Sales of 2018

Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two massive shopping days which arrive each year towards the end of November, following US Thanksgiving. Traditionally, they’re one the best times to find and take advantage of sales on all sorts of product across the internet.

VPN subscriptions are no exception.

During these two days (sometimes extended to an entire week or more, depending on the provider), you can get some of the best VPN deals of the year.

I like to save money. Hence, every November I spend a good amount of time searching aroung for these types of VPN sales.

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 also check just about every VPN I’m familiar with too. If I can get another year’s subscription (or more) to a service I’m happy with at a great 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, hence, I’m only posting Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for providers I’m personally familiar with. These are the guys I 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.

The Deals

NordVPN [75% off]

NordVPN websiteNordVPN is a definite favorite of mine. It’s one of two providers with which I keep an active subscription at all times.

Being Panama based and having a strict no-logging policy, no one does privacy better. They are one of the fastest VPNs and thousands of high-performance servers across 62 countries. NordVPN allows an industry-leading six simultaneous connections, has no issues with P2P and offer a feature-rich client that in my opinion is one of the cleanest and easiest to use. They also have a nice and long 30-day money back guarantee.

For an entire month starting on October 30 and ending on November 30, NordVPN is offering a massive 75% off a three-year subscription. That translates to $2.99 per month. If memory serves me correctly, that matches the lowest per month price that NordVPN has ever offered.

PureVPN [73% off]

PureVPN websitePureVPN is one of the most popular, and indeed, better VPN providers in the market. It’s the second service with which I always keep an active subscription.

They run servers in 141 countries (basically everywhere you could ever want to connect), allow P2P, let you connect up to five devices at once, and are 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 Month special from November 5 to November 27. The event lets you pick up a one-year subscription to their service at a 73% discount, or for $2.99 per month. I’ve been with PureVPN for over five years, and it just doesn’t get any cheaper than that. This year’s deal will be hard to beat.

CyberGhost [77% off]

CyberGhost HomepageCyberGhost is a perfect VPN provider for the privacy-minded. That’s not to say it’s slouch in other departments. In fact, with CyberGhost 7 released just earlier this month, they’re better than ever.

Based out of Romania, CyberGhost has a true no-logging policy for maximum privacy. In 2018, their network grew by a massive 150% to over 3000 servers in 60 countries. They all show good performance too. P2P is allowed, and at 45 days, CyberGhost offers the longest money back guarantee of all providers.

The 2018 Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale is a steal of a deal. CyberGhost is offering 77% off on an 18-month subscription (which they market as pay for 12 months, get 6 months free). That comes out to only $2.75 per month. The sale starts on November 12 and runs through November 30.

Surfshark [83% off]

Surfshark's websiteA fairly new VPN provider, I have only started using Surfshark this year. But, as you can see from my review, call me impressed. Other providers should definitely take notice.

With a clean and super intuitive client, Surfshark is a perfect service for those of us who like to keep things simple. They have a broad and fast global server coverage, support torrenting, and are right up there with the best of the best regarding privacy (i.e. absolutely zero logging). They even allow unlimited connections!

Surfshark is also trying to raise the discount bar with an almost insane 83% off. Between November 12 and November 30, you can get their service for a mere $1.99 per month on a 24-month subscription. As I said earlier, other VPN providers better take notice.

ExpressVPN [49% off]

ExpressVPN websiteExpressVPN 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 9 and ends November 27 at 10 AM GMT.

HideMyAss! [75% off]

HideMyAss websiteHideMyAss! has been around for a long time and is an excellent all-arounder VPN service. Their real claim to fame, though, is their global coverage. With servers in 190 countries, nobody does locations better.

All those servers don’t mean bad performance either. As HMA’s speed test results confirm, they hum along very nicely. I do have a few concerns with this HideMyAss’s logging policy. It’s more than enough for the average user, but if you like your privacy bulletproof, you should look at a NordVPN or CyberGhost. Everywhere else, though, HMA’s offering is on par with other VPN providers.

From November 19 through November 30, you can get a 3-year HMA subscription for 75% off. That’s a dollar per month less than any other sale I have seen from them this year.

TunnelBear [58% off]

TunnelBear websiteTunnelBear is an excellent service for beginners. They are super easy to use on any platform. They also make it their mission to be very open and transparent about all their policies.

While TunnelBear does log some data, that information is not enough to identify you in any way. Total privacy is ensured. They run 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 one year subscriptions at 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]

Invisible Browsing VPN websiteibVPN 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 one year 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 websiteIPVanish 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. It 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. That’s roughly 76% off.

StrongVPN [50% off]

StrongVPN websiteThough 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. Their performance, while more than good enough, will not blow anyone’s socks off either. 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.
