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. Don’t wait too long though, or you may find yourself waiting for the VPN Christmas sales to roll around.
CyberGhost [77% off]
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 2019 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.
PureVPN [88% off]
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 16 to November 30. The event lets you pick up a 5-year subscription to their service at a 88% discount, or for $1.32 per month. I’ve been with PureVPN close to six years, and it just doesn’t get any cheaper than that. This year’s deal will be hard to beat.
NordVPN [75% off]
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.
Surfshark [83% off]
A 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 huge 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. Only PureVPN is offering a lower monthly price. As I said earlier, other VPN providers better take notice.
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.
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! 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]
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 23 at 9 AM EST until November 27 at 9 AM EST.
Invisible Browsing VPN [68% off]
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 68% off all their one year plans. This offer is available for three days only, from November 23 to November 26. 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 [72% off]
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 21 at 12:01 AM UTC. It finishes on November 30 at 11:59 PM UTC. Their deal is a 2-year subscription for less than the regular price of a 1-year subscription. That’s roughly 72% off.
StrongVPN [56% 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. 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 56% discount. You can also take 25% off any of their other VPN plans (do note, though, that this is only for the first billing cycle). The offer is live at 12:01 AM UTC on November 21 and ends at 11:59 PM UTC on November 30.
