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. These are typically significantly better than any of the regular VPN coupons and sales you see at other times.
I like to save money. Hence, every November I spend a good amount of time searching around for the best VPN deals out there.
For myself, I mainly look for discounts with providers which I haven’t yet had a chance to try and play with. But I also check just about every virtual private network 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 VPN deals for providers I’m personally familiar with. These are companies 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 having to wait for the VPN Christmas sales to roll around.
NordVPN is one of my go-to providers and a service with which I always keep an active subscription.
NordVPN allows a generous six simultaneous connections, unlocks any geo-blocked streaming service you can throw at it, has no issues with P2P, and offers a feature-rich client that I think is one of the cleanest and easiest to use.
Based out of Panama, NordVPN also follows a strict no-logging policy and have a ton of privacy features few other providers offer. These include double VPN, Tor over VPN, and obfuscated servers – the latter are perfect for VPN access in places where use is restricted. No one does privacy better
Starting on October 28 and running until December 1, NordVPN is offering a massive 68% off a two-year subscription. You also get a additional three months free as a bonus. That all translates to just $3.71 per month.
This bundle is, without a doubt, the best discount NordVPN has offered in a long, long time. And the entire thing is, of course, covered by NordVPN’s excellent 30-day money-back guarantee.
A fairly new VPN provider, I started using Surfshark only last year. But, as you can see from my review, call me impressed. Many other providers should definitely take note of how to do things right.
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 for privacy (i.e. absolutely zero logging). They even allow unlimited connections (the only premium provider to do that)!
Not to be outdone buy their competitors, Surfshark also does an excellent job of unblocking US Netflix, Hulu, the BBC iPlayer, and just about any other popular streaming service you can think of.
Surfshark is also trying to raise the discount bar this savings season with one of the best Black Friday VPN deals around – a huge 83% off.
Between November 12 and December 3, you can get their service for a mere $2.21 per month on a 27-month subscription. It’s as good of a deal as I’ve seen from them all year.
Like I said, other VPN providers better take note.
PureVPN is one of the most popular, and indeed, best VPNs in the market. They’re one of two providers with which I keep an active subscription at all times.
With servers in 74 countries (basically everywhere you would ever want to connect), PureVPN allows P2P network-wide, 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 VPN split tunneling.
PureVPN also does an excellent job of unblocking many popular streaming services, including US Netflix, Hulu, and the BBC iPlayer, and runs dozens of servers optimized specifically for that purpose.
This year’s PureVPN Black Friday deal starts on November 16. While the end date is unknown, I’m pretty sure this is a discount that won’t be around too long – it’s simply too good.
The promo lets you pick up a 5-year subscription to their service at a pretty insane 88% discount, or for only $1.32 per month. I’ve been with PureVPN close to eight years, and it just doesn’t get any cheaper than that. This is a deal that will be hard to beat.
CyberGhost is a perfect VPN provider for the privacy-minded. That’s not to say it’s a slouch elsewhere. In fact, since the recent release of the latest version of their software, they’ve been better than ever.
Based out of Romania, CyberGhost has a true no-logging policy for maximum privacy. Over the last year or so, their network grew by a massive 150% to servers in countries. They all show good performance too.
P2P is allowed, and unlocking geo-blocked content works like a charm. And, at 45 days, CyberGhost offers the longest money-back guarantee of all providers.
For their 2021 VPN Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale, CyberGhost is running a promotion like never before. They’re offering 83% off on a 3-year subscription. The deal also comes with an additional 3 months for free. Add it all up and the whole things comes out to a mere $2.25 per month.
The sale starts on November 16 and runs through December 3.
VyprVPN has really turned things around recently. They’ve become a certified no-logging VPN, released an excellent new multi-platform client app, and stepped up their efforts to allow unblocking of most popular video streaming services.
In other words, they’re now a worthy contender – no matter what your VPN needs are.
Based in Switzerland and using the latest technologies mean security and privacy are top-notch. VyprVPN’s proprietary Chameleon protocol means the service also works well in countries like China – where VPN use is frowned upon.
VyprVPN’s entirely self-owned server network spans 64 countries. Server performance can hold its own and easily lets you download large files – P2P is supported – as well as stream high-quality video, including Netflix and the BBC iPlayer.
For Black Friday and Cyber Monday, VyprVPN is offering a three-year subscription at a huge 87% discount compared to regular prices – that’s only $1.66 per month. The offer runs from mid-November to end-of-day on December 1 and is, of course, backed by comprehensive VyprVPN’s 30-day money-back-guarantee.
Private Internet Access has a very loyal following among its users – a strong sign they’re doing things right. And based on my experience, they indeed do not disappoint.
Even though Private Internet Access is US-based (not ideal), they’re a verified zero-logging provider. Torrenting is allowed network-wide and the recently re-designed multi-platform app is a breeze to use.
With a price drop of 82%, PIA’s Black Friday sale is as good as it gets. It’s even better than last year’s excellent deal, if memory serves me correctly.
Starting November 16, you can get a 3-year plan at only $2.19 per month. The discount extends through Cyber Monday and ends December 1.
If it’s the absolute highest levels of privacy and security you’re after, few other providers can match ProtonVPN’s commitment. In fact, the Switzerland-based company is the only service that lets you run a double VPN in every country on their server list – that’s 82 locations worldwide.
There is, of course, much more to ProtonVPN. An easy to use feature-packed client, torrenting support, and excellent connection speeds are just some of the things that jumped out at me during my review.
This year, ProtonVPN has bundled a 2-year plan of both the Plus versions of their VPN and their privacy-centric ProtonMail email service. You can pick them up at a significant 50% discount. Also available is a single year version of that deal at 45% off.
These Black Friday deals go live on November 14 and end immediately after Cyber Monday on December 1.
ProtonVPN is a provider that very rarely has sales. So, if you were ever considering on jumping onboard with them, this a great chance.
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 have more than enough power to satisfy the advanced users.
The Black Friday and Cyber Monday promotion, which is ExpressVPN’s best deal in a long while, is a 15-month subscription at 49% off. The sale starts on November 9 and ends December 14.
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 219 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 NordVPN or CyberGhost. Everywhere else, though, HMA’s offering gets top marks.
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.
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 typically try to block VPN services (think China or Netflix).
Being small means they offer servers in only just over 30 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 most popular annual plan at a 50% discount. Included in your $2.91 per month subscription is 250 GB of cloud storage.
This offer is live at 12:01 AM UTC on November 17 and ends at 11:59 PM UTC on November 30.
TunnelBear is an excellent VPN for beginners – client apps don’t get much easier to use than this. The provider is also 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 – you get total privacy.
There is, however, a downside to TunnelBear if you’re a P2P users. BitTorrent is not currently allowed on any of their servers.
For the Black Friday sale, TunnelBear is offering discounted two and three-year subscriptions at 72% off. The prices are $2.75 per month and $2.78 per month respectively.
The deals are valid starting now through Cyber Monday on November 30.
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 no information to give them).
IPVanish offers fast speeds across their entire network – a server list which spans 52 countries and 1725 locations. You’re allowed unlimited P2P traffic and up to ten devices connected at the same time.
This is also one VPN provider that likes to continuously innovate and push the envelope with features like VPN connection masking and IP cycling.
The IPVanish Cyber sale begins on November 11 at 12:01 AM UTC. It finishes on November 30 at 11:59 PM UTC. The deal is a 1-year subscription at 76% off the regular monthly price, which comes out to just $2.91 per month.
With your VPN, you also get a free 250 GB of cloud storage with SugarSync. That’s a great little bonus.
