Plan to shop online this holiday season? If so a VPN will help protect you from identity theft and secure your data. As always, we also recommend taking additional precautions to protect yourself. For the best performance you will want to connect to a VPN server close to your current location. However, you can also use CyberGhost to save on travel. Check airfare and hotel pricing from home and then connect to a VPN server in a different country. You might be surprised to find a lower price. It’s always nice to save money during the holidays.
The CyberGhost sale will give you full access to their VPN network. You can connect using any of their VPN apps for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android. They also recently launched an app for Amazon Firestick devices. This will come in handy this holiday season. Feel free to use the service on Kodi and for torrenting. The CyberGhost client has a selection to torrent anonymously. You can also switch regions to enjoy entertainment in other parts of the world.
- 12 month plan – $4.87 a month ($58.49 total cost)
- 3 month plan – $6.74 a month ($20.24 total cost)
- 1 month plan – $7.50 a month
IPVanish is hands down my favorite VPN service. Their mix of speed and value keeps them at the top of the list. You’ll find their network to be the fastest throughout North America, several locations in Europe and beyond. IPVanish is a top tier provider meaning they manage their own network. That gives them a cost advantage over other companies along with excellent performance and reliability.
As you can see IPVanish manages a large network of VPN servers around the world with great performance. You wouldn’t believe just how much Netflix my family can watch in a month. Not to mention gaming and other online activities. For us performance is key and IPVanish delivers.
- 36 month plan – $2.25 a month ($54.00 total cost)
- 12 month plan – $3.33 a month ($40.00 total cost)
- 1 month plan – $9.95 a month
Ivacy is new to our list of holiday deals this year but don’t let that scare you. They have been in the industry for a number of years now and offer one of the best Black Friday promotions this year. That makes it the perfect time to sign up for Ivacy. In addition to the discounts listed above, we also noticed a popup on the Ivacy website offering 5 years of unlimited VPN for just $1.34 a month.
There are a number of benefits that help Ivacy stand out. The first is their dedication to privacy and support for torrent users. This is achieved through a zero log policy meaning that the service is not tracking your usage. Their client includes a kill switch feature to help ensure your anonymity. You can also add port forwarding or dedicated IP for additional cost. You will also find that Ivacy is a good choice for accessing geo-restricted content in other countries.
- 60 month plan – $1.32 a month ($79.00 total cost)
- 12 month plan – $4.09 a month ($49.04 total cost)
- 1 month plan – $10.95 a month
PureVPN is known for some great promotions but they’ve outdone themselves this time around. In addition to unlimited VPN access, you can get a dedicated IP address and support for port forwarding for a very low price. Sign up during their holiday promotion and pay $79 for 5 years of PureVPN. That’s just $1.32 a month for full access to their network.
The PureVPN client is quite accommodating to those who have never used a VPN before. You can select from a series of modes including stream, Internet freedom, security / privacy, file sharing, and dedicated IP. You can also use split tunneling to determine which apps send traffic through the VPN versus your native Internet connection.
- 24 month plan – $2.50 a month ($59.95 total cost)
- 12 month plan – $3.25 a month ($38.95 total cost)
- 1 month plan – $6.45 a month
Private Internet Access is all about privacy and value. They don’t manage as large a network in terms of countries and server locations. Instead they focus on other areas and offer a lower price for the service. Private Internet Access is a trusted favorite of the file sharing community.
There are a lot of torrent users who love Private Internet Access. The service includes a feature that will stop your system from communicating if the connection to their service drops. Meaning if your encrypted VPN access is dropped for any reason it will keep you safe.
I use PIA’s Windows client and there isn’t much to it in terms of set up and usage. It’s simplicity doesn’t mean the client isn’t feature rich. PIA offers different levels of privacy protection depending on your needs. Control encryption levels and find the right balance between privacy and speed.
- 12 month plan + 3 mos. free – $6.67 a month ($99.95 total cost)
- 6 month plan – $9.99 a month ($59.95 total cost)
- 1 month plan – $12.95 a month
If you’ve been a fan of ExpressVPN over they years then you know that they don’t discount their service very often. ExpressVPN is a premium offering and as such they hardly ever offer a promotion. Fortunately they are celebrating the holidays with a generous offer. Enjoy 12 months of unlimited VPN + 3 months free for $99.99 a year. At $6.67 a month you will not find a better deal on the service.
ExpressVPN is known for quality. Members have access to servers in 148 locations across 94 countries. You can connect on up to three devices and also have access to their Smart DNS feature. This is especially helpful for unblocking geo-restricted content in other regions.
- 36 month plan – $2.99 a month ($107.55 total cost)

- 12 month plan – $6.99 a month ($83.88 total cost)

As a NordVPN member you have access to their full network of VPN servers around the world. Where the service differs from the others in our list is in their support for double VPN and Tor over VPN. They also have servers to help gamers avoid DDoS attacks. NordVPN allows P2P and VoIP on their network. They do not monitor or block traffic for any reason. Their VPN service is completely free of restrictions.
You will find a full line of software available for NordVPN. Whether you want to connect from desktop or mobile, their team has you covered. You will find that NordVPN has taken several extra steps to secure your privacy. They start by supporting Bitcoin for a higher degree of anonymity when you sign up. From there you have the option of simply connecting to the service, encrypting your data twice, or even accessing Tor over VPN.
