If you’re shopping for VPN deals you’ve probably decided you can’t get away with using a free one. And you’d be right: the limited choice of servers, which are always overloaded doesn’t equate to a good service. Plus, most free VPNs don’t unblock Netflix or other streaming services.
The alternative is to pay for a subscription, and there are some great Cyber Monday deals around.
But there is a way to avoid subscriptions: get a lifetime deal. Not many VPN services offer these, but this crazy offer from FastestVPN might just be the best deal we’ve seen for ages.
For just $20, which is about £15, you get lifetime access to the full service (with around 350 servers in over 40 countries) for 15 devices.
FastestVPN unblocks US Netflix (and other streaming services) and also supports P2P downloads.

Privacy-wise, there’s the usual no-logs policy but you can pay with crypto if you want to remain anonymous to FastestVPN.
If that’s not enough, you’ll also get 2TB of encrypted cloud storage thrown in, although that’s only for the first 12 months.
If you’re not happy, there’s a 15-day money back guarantee, so there’s really no reason not to give FastestVPN a try.

Top 10 VPN Deals
Private Internet Access two-year subscription
From: Private Internet Access
Was: $454.10 / £389.61
$56.94 / £43.94
Private Internet Access is offering four free months on top of its two-year subscription for Black Friday.The monthly price shown on PIA’s site counts those extra ‘free’ months not as free but as paid, so really the price is exactly the same as it was before Black Friday, though your subscription will last for 28 months instead of 24. It’s just a cheeky way of making the monthly price look cheaper than it really is.But it’s a good deal overall for this trusted service: it’s one of few VPN services that have made the source code for its apps public so it can be scrutinised.

Ivacy five-year VPN subscription
Was: $597 / £517.20
$60 / £52.08
Ivacy’s Black Friday deal is one of the best around, knocking a whopping 90% off the usual monthly price.It’s a five-year subscription that works out at $1 per month, or 80p if you’re in the UK. The up-front payment of $60 / £52.08 is a real bargain, as that’s what most VPN services charge for two years, or even one year.
Ivacy offers a great service which supports P2P downloads, unblocks streaming services (including Netflix and Disney+) and, like any VPN service, gives you security when using public Wi-Fi and privacy when browsing the web. You can use it on up to 10 devices at the same time, but even if you use it only on one or two, it’s still one the cheapest VPN deals around.
Atlas VPN Premium two-year subscription + 6 months free
From: Atlas VPN
Was: $329.70 / £242.70
$49.19 / £36.21
Atlas VPN is owned by Nord Security and is effectively the company’s low-cost alternative to NordVPN.
It’s already running a Black Friday offer, which gives you an extra six free months on top of the two-year subscription, making this a very good deal indeed.
Atlas VPN doesn’t tick as many boxes as NordVPN or Surfshark, but if you’re just looking for the low monthly price, then this deal should be tempting, especially as Atlas VPN doesn’t put any restrictions on the number of devices you can use with the service at the same time.
PureVPN two-year subscription
Was: $657 ($10.95/mo)
PureVPN’s Black Friday deal is for a five-year subscription that will cost you $84.95 (around £72).
That’s $1.41 per month, which isn’t bad at all.
As with all the deals here (and with all VPN subscriptions longer than a month), you pay for the full subscription up front – not per month.
NordVPN two-year subscription
Was: $223.83 / £177.93
$80.73 / £80.68 (inc VAT)
NordVPN’s Black Friday deal gets you two years and three months’ access to this top VPN service.
It is by no means the cheapest (it’s still cheaper than ExpressVPN though!) but because it is one of the best all-round VPN services out there, it’s arguably worth paying more for.
However, if you’re happy to compromise on features and speeds, you can get a similar length subscription from several other VPN services here for less than half the price NordVPN charges. That’s why NordVPN’s deal features fairly low down our list.
The reason NordVPN’s discount appears lower than its rivals is not because it’s more expensive, but because
it bases its discount off the renewal price, not the one-month subscription price.
CyberGhost two-year subscription
Was: $337.74 / £313.63
$56.94 / £49.92
CyberGhost is a great VPN service and is currently offering a two-year subscription with four months free at the end
As with its rivals here, it uses those extra months in its calculations to make the monthly price seem cheaper. Look past this, and it’s a good deal for a good VPN service.
Also beware: the renewal price remains the same
, but only lasts for a year, making it more than twice as expensive, so be sure to cancel before it renews.
CyberGhost is great for unblocking streaming services, so if that’s what you want a VPN for, it should be a tempting deal. The UK price is also more competitive for Black Friday.
You’ll find CyberGhost in our roundup of the best VPN services.
Surfshark two-year subscription
Was: $310.80 / £324
$53.28 / £52.76
Surfshark is offering 84% off its usual monthly price if you opt for its two-year subscription.
It’s a good deal overall, even if the two ‘free’ months aren’t actually free at all. The UK price above includes VAT, which is why it’s higher than the price you’ll initially see on Surfshark’s website.
Buyers in the US will also have to pay local taxes.
However, Surfshark is a top VPN service, which doesn’t put a limit on the number of devices you can connect to the service at the same time. Just note that it doesn’t unblock BBC iPlayer.
FastestVPN Lifetime plan
Unlike most VPN deals which are subscriptions for a set number of years, FastestVPN’s is for a lifetime subscription. We asked the company exactly what that meant and were told “we will never terminate their accounts”.
And for just $20 – around £15 – that’s unbeatable.
Plus, you’ll get a year’s cloud storage thrown in – 2TB with Internxt – and a password manager.
FastestVPN isn’t the best VPN service around, and it’s not the fastest either. It has far fewer locations and servers than most. When we tested it, speeds were good over IKEv2, but terrible over OpenVPN, which is what you need to use to unblock services such Netflix and Disney+ in the US.
(20% / 44% off)
Hidden24 is a VPN service with a difference: it doesn’t require an app. It will suit anyone wanting a VPN for absolute privacy as it logs precisely nothing.
Your device will need to support a VPN connection natively, but Windows, Android, iOS and macOS all do.
Hidden24 is also a great option if you don’t want to sign up for a long time: it’s around half the cost of its rivals if you just need a VPN for a month.
