Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two of the best days to save on all different types of products and services, and identity theft protection is one of them. LifeLock is perhaps the most recognizable identity monitoring brand, and they boast comprehensive coverage, affordable starting prices, and a user-friendly interface, but that doesn’t mean you should pay full price. Here are all the ways to save on LifeLock this Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Black Friday Savings

We’ve looked all over the Internet for LifeLock’s Black Friday sales, and for 2020, we came up blank. However, we have seen some Black Friday deals from LifeLock in the past, like 10 percent off, 25 percent off for new customers, and other discounts on monthly or yearly packages.

Cyber Monday Savings

The exact same information held true for Cyber Monday, as 2020 hasn’t been announced and we’ve seen similar deals to Black Fridays of years passed. We wish we had more to share with you, but it’s just not available yet!

LifeLock; What You Get

We’re straightforward about the fact that LifeLock’s pricing and plans aren’t the clearest or most streamlined. Because LifeLock is only one service of Norton, it’s also available bundled with Norton 360. However, the Standard plan on its own costs $9.99 a month or $107.88 for the first year, and after that, either $11.99 or $143.88, respectively. Now, we don’t love that the prices go up after the first year, which is why Black Friday and Cyber Monday savings are so imperative. But let’s back up and talk about what the LifeLock plans actually include.

Credit Monitoring

LifeLock has monitoring for all three credit-monitoring bureaus available (Experian, TransUnion and Equifax), but they’re not available with all of the plans. We recommend springing for the Norton 360 with LifeLock Ultimate Plus package, as it’s the only option that covers all three bureaus.

Financial Monitoring

Aside from our credit, LifeLock also monitored several financial areas to check for suspicious activity, including:

  • Bank account takeovers
  • 401(k) and investment accounts
  • Checking and savings accounts applications
  • Home titles

Criminal Areas Monitoring

Finally, LifeLock’s coverage extended to criminal areas or potential criminal areas like:

  • U.S.P.S address changes
  • Dark web
  • Data breaches
  • ID verification
  • Crimes committed in your name
  • Fictitious identities
  • Sex offender registry reports.
