Recently, I’ve had a couple of reasons to write about why I think having access to a VPN service is both important and helpful (see here and here) and right now, the provider that I use is offering new customers up to 4 months free (16 months in total) when they take out a subscription in the Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale.
What is a VPN (per ExpressVPN)?
A VPN (virtual private network) is the easiest and most effective way for people to protect their internet traffic and keep their identities private online. As you connect to a secure VPN server, your internet traffic goes through an encrypted tunnel that nobody can see into, including hackers, governments, and your internet service provider.
If you want to know more, follow these links:
There are a wide variety of VPN providers out there and I’m not in a position to tell you which is best. That’s for you to decide.
All I can tell you is that I’ve tried out a few different providers and the only service that hasn’t let me down so far is the one from ExpressVPN.
Note: You can use a VPN service on your smartphone as well as on a laptop/desktop
This is what the standard Black Friday/Cyber Monday ExpressVPN deal looks like right now:
If, however, you use my referral link (I get 30 free days for every successful referral), this is the deal that you should see:
Using the referral link, you’ll get a bonus whichever plan you choose to go for but considering the 12 month plan (+ 4 free months) offers a 30-day money-back guarantee, there doesn’t seem to be much reason to go for either of the other two options.
Using the middle option, you get 30 days to try the service out and if you don’t like it, you can cancel free of charge. If you like it and don’t cancel, you’ll enjoy 16 months of service for the price of 12.
The ExpressVPN Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale is currently offering new subscribers the change to get 15 months for the price of 12. If, however, you use my referral link, that deal improves to 16 months for the price of 12.
