VPN Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

2023 Black Friday & Cyber Monday VPN Deals Verified

Black Friday and Cyber Monday conjure visions of crowded stores, discounted washing machines, TVs sold for the prices of yesterday’s DVD players, and people shoving each other fighting over gaming consoles and whatnot. But that’s not all that there is to these two special shopping days.

For Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022, we’re looking forward to buying affordable VPN subscriptions, and you should too. These are two of the only days of the year that we can get VPNs for significantly lower prices.

The good news is, you may not even have to wait for November 25 and 28, the dates of Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year, to enjoy VPN discounts. As early as now, there are VPN sales from even the top VPN brands.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals From The Top VPN Brands

VPNs don’t cost that much, especially if you sign up for a long-term subscription (one year or more). That said, this Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022, you can get discounts in the form of additional months of service completely on the house. Here are some of the best VPN deals we found.

NordVPN

Our rating: 9.7/10

NordVPN currently sits at the top of our list of the best VPNs, and for good reasons. It has the most advanced security features around like Tor Over VPN and Double VPN, it’s very secure, and it’s not over-the-top expensive. You can even get access to a password manager and secure cloud backup with its Plus and Complete plans. You can read more about these features in our NordVPN review.

For Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022 — or rather, the whole month of November — NordVPN is tacking on three free months of service to any of its one-year and two-year subscriptions. That goes for the Standard, Plus, and Complete plans.

Here’s an overview of NordVPN’s pricing.

Plans and subscriptions 1-month subscription 12-month subscription + 3 months free 24-month subscription + 3 months free
Standard plan $11.99 $67.35 $99.63
Plus plan $12.99 $82.35 $126.63
Complete plan $14.29 $101.85 $161.73

Considering that a month of NordVPN subscription costs $11.99 to $14.29, those three free months can be worth as much as $43. Not bad.

Surfshark

Our rating: 9.5/10

Surfshark is another strong option, particularly when it comes to making sure your web traffic doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. It has features like Camouflage Mode and NoBorders Mode that make sure you can get around restrictions and censorship without getting into trouble. Our in-depth Surfshark review tells you more about these features and other features offered by Surfshark.

Surfshark’s Black Friday 2022 offer is similar to NordVPN’s, but the free months apply only to the 24-month subscription, the longest subscription available from Surfshark. Also, instead of three months, users get two months.

Surfshark plans 1-month subscription 12-month subscription 24-month subscription + 2 months free
Total subscription cost $12.95 $47.88 $53.28
Average cost per month $12.95 $3.99 $2.05

Private Internet Access

Our rating: 9.4/10

Private Internet Access, or PIA, is an affordable but reliable VPN. Our favorite thing about it, as we’ve explained in our Private Internet Access review, is the level of customizability it allows, which makes it a great option whether you’re a VPN novice or someone who has been using VPNs for a long time.

Private Internet Access’ Black Friday deal is three months of free service if you sign up for a three-year subscription for $79. That breaks down to just $2.03 per month for 39 months. PIA subscriptions are already affordable even without deals, and its Black Friday offer just takes it to a whole new level of affordability.

Private Internet Access plans 3 years + 3 months free 1 year 1 month
Total plan cost $79 $39.95 $11.95
Average monthly cost $2.03 $3.33 $11.95

IPVanish

Our rating: 9.3/10

IPVanish values customer service — that’s one of the things we loved about it — and so it made sure to offer its customers deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022.

The deal is three months of free VPN given to new subscribers of the IPVanish yearly plan. For $47.89, you can get access to IPVanish VPN for 15 months. That’s about $3.19 per month. However, take note that after the first year, it renews automatically for $89.99 annually or about $7.50 per month. But don’t worry, you can still cancel IPVanish before it renews.

Ivacy

Our rating: 9.2/10

Ivacy is one of the most affordable VPNs, especially right now that its subscriptions are up to 90-percent off.

The percentage-off discount applies to the five-year plan, Ivacy’s longest and most affordable subscription. Normally, this plan costs about $1.19 per month, but for the upcoming holiday sales, the average monthly cost is down to just $1. It’s not much, but given that Ivacy plans are already affordable, we’re just happy to know they can get even lower.

ExpressVPN

Our rating: 9.1/10

We love ExpressVPN, but one of the reasons it’s not higher on our list of the best VPNs is its price. It’s a bit more expensive compared to other top VPNs. For example, even if you sign up for a one-year ExpressVPN subscription, the rate is still high at $8.33 per month.

Feature-wise, though, ExpressVPN can go toe to toe against the best VPNs out there, which is why we’re thrilled that ExpressVPN has a Black Friday offer this time around. The offer is three months of free VPN service if you buy a one-year subscription for $99.95. At that price, it would appear as though the monthly rate is down to $6.67 per month, an almost $2 per month difference compared to regular rates.

It’s also worth noting that Aircove, ExpressVPN’s VPN router, is currently on sale on Amazon. Its price is down to $142 from its $189.90 regular price, a $48 savings.

Atlas VPN

Our rating: 9.0/10

Atlas VPN is a newcomer, but it’s easily one of the best cybersecurity tools out there because it also offers a data breach monitor on top of its VPN service. You can read all about it in our Atlas VPN review.

Atlas has one of the biggest Black Friday 2022 deals. For starters, the three-year plan from Atlas is 84-percent off compared to the monthly plan. In total, you’ll pay only $71.49 for three whole years of VPN use. On top of that, by using the code BLACKFRIDAY at checkout, you’ll get six months of free service.

PureVPN

Our rating: 8.9/10

PureVPN’s Black Friday deal from last year is back. From now until November 25, you can save 82-percent on the two-year PureVPN subscription. That’s thanks to the three months free added to the 24-month plan.

The two-year plan from PureVPN costs $46.95, and if you grab this deal, it would be like you’re paying only $1.95 per month.

PureVPN also released a special subscription that brings down the VPN’s price to just $1.41 per month. It’s a five-year plan, so you’ll pay about $115 upfront, but after that, you’re good for the next half-decade.

CyberGhost

Our rating: 8.9/10

CyberGhost is one of the best VPNs we’ve ever tested on a Mac computer, and as you might expect from a VPN with the word “ghost” in its name, it’s pretty stealthy. It has NoSpy servers, for instance — servers operated and owned by CyberGhost itself that is far from the reach of any government surveillance alliances.

CyberGhost’s Black Friday 2022 offer, much like many of the VPNs we’ve already discussed, is months of free VPN added to the longest subscription option. In CyberGhost’s case, it’s four months of free VPN added to the two-year plan. With this offer, the average monthly rate is down to just $2.03 per month.

Proton

Our rating: 8.8/10

Proton offers a complete suite of digital security tools, which includes Proton VPN, Proton Mail, Proton Calendar, and Proton Drive, and for Black Friday this year a two-year subscription to those services is 40-percent off. Instead of $11.99 per month, which is the regular going rate, you’ll only pay $7.99 per month for a total of $172.56.

Now, if you’re looking for just the VPN, you can also save on the one-year and two-year subscription of Proton VPN. The one-year subscription, which costs $71.88, includes three months of free service. On the other hand, the $119.76 two-year subscription includes six months of free VPN.

Recap

VPNs aren’t very expensive in general, especially when you consider the privacy and security benefits you get from them, but this holiday season, you can get a VPN for even less. Discounts as big as the ones we just discussed don’t come everyday, so take full advantage of the VPN deals for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2022.
