VPN Black Friday & Cyber Monday Deals
Black Friday conjures images of discounted washing machines, TVs sold for the prices of yesterday’s DVD players, and malls crowded with Moms, coupons in hands. However, it’s 2020, and this year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are going to look a little different. If you’re looking for an affordable VPN, it makes sense to wait until these shopping holidays. We’ve found the best deals on the VPNs we’ve tested so you can save on online privacy.
Live Black Friday and Cyber Monday VPN Deals
For some VPNs, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come early— literally. Here are the deals that are already live and waiting for you.
Trust.Zone already has a live and early Black Friday deal for three-year memberships at $1.99 a month with the code EARLYBF80; however, this plan will disappear after 250 activations,1 so make sure you sign up soon! To see if the VPN is right for you in the first place, read our Trust.Zone review.
TunnelBear is offering up to 50 percent off annual plans, which puts them at $4.99 a month. Remember, TunnelBear is one of the best free VPNs, as well, although there is a data limit on free plans.
Past Black Friday and Cyber Monday VPN Deals
As of now, most VPN companies haven’t announced their Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, which is why we looked into the past to see what was discounted. We saw savings of up to 90 percent, so we can expect to put a lot of money back in our pockets this year, as well.
Sure, it’s been a minute since Astrill VPN gave us discounts on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (five years, to be exact). That being said, in 2015, they gave us up to 57 percent off their VPNs plus free routers or wireless extenders, while Cyber Monday gave us an annual subscription for $29.95 plus a free StealthVPN subscription. We haven’t reviewed StealthVPN, but free is free!
In sales holidays past, Avast has given us discounts, although the exact numbers aren’t available on their website.
In 2018 and 2017, BlackVPN offered a 50 percent discount on all of their subscriptions; the same went for Cyber Monday 2014.2
Last year, ExpressVPN offered three free months with an annual plan, with the monthly rate coming out to only $6.67 on both Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That’s a 49 percent discount, which is good because ExpressVPN’s pricing tends to be on the higher end.
FYI: Location, location, location doesn’t just apply to real estate. Be sure to check out a VPN’s server locations before buying to make sure one is close to you; that’ll affect your browsing speed. ExpressVPN, for example, has over 2,000 servers in 148 locations worldwide.
2019’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday were great days to save on FastestVPN, with so many offerings that we made a chart to explain them all.

Tip: Lifetime subscriptions mean that you only have to pay one amount to use a VPN forever. Not many VPNs have lifetime subscriptions available, but we recommend buying them if you’re sure about the VPN.
Although we didn’t see any Black Friday deals from Hotspot Shield last year, we did see an offer of 38 percent off the annual plan, which came out to $7.99 a month. Not bad!
It’s been a couple years since ibVPN has given us Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals, but we did see annual subscriptions discounted by 69 percent, making them only $1.54 a month. This is by far one of the lowest monthly prices we’ve seen from a VPN, so we’re hoping that ibVPN picks up these discounts in 2020.
IPVanish is super generous with its discounts, giving us up to 88 percent off two year plans last Black Friday, which amounted to $3.33 a month, or, the year before, 72 percent off two year plans on Cyber Monday. We expect big things in 2020!
Halt: Do you want a VPN based in a country that’s a non-member to Five Eyes? If so, IPVanish is not for you, as the company is based in Orlando, Florida and the U.S is a Five Eyes member.
Last year, Ivacy offered the same deal on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, either 90 percent off a five year plan for $0.99 a month, or 66 percent off the one year plan for $3.33 a month. Less than a dollar a month for a VPN? Sign us up!
KeepSolid VPN Unlimited
Remember those lifetime subscriptions we mentioned earlier? In 2019 Black Friday, KeepSolid gave us over 90 percent off a lifetime subscription, which came out to only $39; yes, you read that right. In 2017, we saw 89 percent off lifetime subscriptions on Cyber Monday, plus an extra 40 percent off using the code CYBER40.3 In other words, expect deals on deals on deals.
In Black Friday 2019, NordVPN gave us $3.49 a month for a three year plan, which included three months on the house plus 70 percent off a three-year plan for Nordlocker, their encrypted cloud storage.
VPNs aren’t hugely expensive in general, but on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you can get them for less than ever before. Of course, if you’re not sure which VPN is for you, we recommend reading our reviews, where we go over the entire testing process to determine whether a VPN is worthy of your money. Sure, you could pay less than a dollar for a VPN per month, but that only makes sense if it’s truly trustworthy, which is where our experts come in. Happy shopping!
