5 Best VPN Deals & Discounts in 2023

These days, VPN and internet usage go hand in hand. As hackers, phishing scams, and data breaches get more aggressive, it only seems reasonable to protect yourself with a VPN, which encrypts traffic and hides IP addresses. And if you're easily bored with what Netflix and other streaming services have to offer, it doesn't hurt that a VPN allows you to visit other countries' content libraries. For instance, the beloved series FRIENDS may have left Netflix for Max in the US, but it's still a streamable Netflix property in many parts of the world, including the UK, Australia, and India. And even though Hulu isn't available outside of the US, you can use a VPN to continue using your account even if you're away from home. 

VPNs are so ubiquitous, in fact, that there are so many—perhaps too many—options out there. To help you choose the best fit for you, we gathered the best VPN deals and discounts that are available right now. Some of these are available for a limited time only, so make sure you check them out while they last.

NordVPN is currently slashing 69% off its usual price and throwing in 3 extra months for free if you purchase its two-year complete package plan. This means you'll only have to pay about $135 for the first two years, or $5 instead of $15 each month. The complete package plan also comes with exclusive perks like 1TB storage and next-generation file encryption. If you're not happy with the deal, you can have your subscription refunded with NordVPN's 30-day money-back guarantee. 

VPN services like NordVPN are a great way to maximize your streaming subscription since you can always switch up your location and, in turn, the titles available at your disposal. But it's also handy if you want to protect yourself from malware, keep your data private, and connect to your devices remotely. 

The most popular deal offered by ExpressVPN right now is a one-year plan that slashes 49% off the service's regular monthly price of $12.95. Since this deal also gives you three extra months for free, that's like paying for a 15-month VPN subscription for only $6.67/month. Not bad, considering that for that low price, you get to browse securely, protect yourself from malware, and if you're streaming, unblock geographic restrictions and switch to one of ExpressVPN's many servers across the world.

Note that the deal is only available on the ExpressVPN website, and you can always have it refunded via its 30-day money-back guarantee if you're not happy with it. You can avail of the deal until the end of the year.

If you purchase Surfshark's two-year plan, the VPN service is throwing in 4 months free and slashing 85% off the regular monthly price as part of an ongoing deal. That comes to $2.73/month (instead of $17.95) or $76.56 for the entire 28 months. After that, unless you cancel, your account automatically renews and charges $79/year. You can also test the deal first to see how it fits and request a refund through a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

This Surfshark plan includes usual VPN services like private browsing, ad blockers, antivirus protection, and real-time breach alerts, but for an added price (not included in the current deal), it also offers data removal from private and public sites.

PIA VPN has an ongoing deal that slashes a whopping 83% off the regular monthly price and adds four more months for free if you purchase its three-year plan. Under the deal, you only have to pay $1.98, instead of the usual $11.95, per month, which comes to a reasonable total of $79 for 40 months. If you're not familiar with the VPN service, PIA (short for Private Internet Access) prides itself on being an "everyday" easy-to-use VPN, but arguably the best part about is it allows an unlimited number of devices to connect to the service, and that it has servers in about 91 countries (including all 50 states in the US). 

Like most VPN deals, you have about a month to decide whether you want to pay for the service you've just tried. If you don't, you can request a refund with their 30-day money-back guarantee.

Proton VPN is currently slashing 50% of its regular monthly price if you purchase their 24-month plan. That means instead of the usual $10, you only have to pay about $5 every month for two years. Take note, however, that the Swiss-based service charges in euros, so the exact price is €4.99, instead of €9.99, per month. Switzerland famously has some of the strongest privacy laws in the world, so together with its open-source and no-logs policies, this makes Proton VPN an ideal option for those seeking an extra layer of security and protection when browsing and streaming. 

You can save up to $125 with this deal, but if you're not satisfied with it, you can choose to get a refund through its 30-day money-back guarantee.
