While other VPN services are gearing up for their Black Friday deals, PureVPN has a ‘spooktacular’ deal for Halloween right now.
The offer is 85% off the usual monthly price of $10.95 (approx. £8.40) which brings it down to just $1.65 per month (approx. £1.27).
It’s only available on the five-year plan, but as it’s so cheap you’ll still pay less than many two-year subscriptions from rivals.
As with all these deals, you pay for the full subscription up front – not monthly. But at $99, which is around £76, it’s still a very affordable way to get protection for your devices for a very long time to come.
You can read our PureVPN review for more details, but suffice to say that it’s one of our top recommendations for a VPN service.
Whether you're after a VPN for stronger online security, or just want a cheap VPN to stream Netflix or the BBC iPlayer from abroad, it's a great time to subscribe to PureVPN.
The deal price is also cheaper than NordVPN's. Nord isn't running a dedicated Halloween promotion and is currently £2.86 for a 2-year plan. Instead, Nord is offering a free extra subscription, with the chance of a 1-month, 1-year or 2-year bonus at random.
In terms of compatibility, PureVPN works across all major desktop and mobile operating systems: Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and Linux. You can use your subscription on five devices at the same time, which is especially convenient if you watch Netflix on both your laptop and phone.
PureVPN has just increased its server count from 2000 to over 3200, and also upgraded its network hardware from 1Gbps to 10Gbps for faster speeds.
Its audited no-logs policy mean the service doesn't store any of your details either, such as your IP address or the number of times you've connected to the service.
Another useful feature of PureVPN is its 'kill switch' option, which ends your internet connection if the VPN drops, keeping your identity private.
Also check out our round up of the best VPNs for streaming. We've also shortlisted the very best VPN deals on now across all major providers below:
1. FastestVPN Lifetime plan
Now: $20 (97% off)
Unlike most VPN deals which are subscriptions for a set number of years, FastestVPN's is for a lifetime subscription. This is exactly what it sounds like: you pay once and have access to the VPN service for as long as you live.
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 absolute best VPN service around: it's not the fastest and has far fewer locations and servers than most. But it says it unblocks Netflix, iPlayer, Disney+, Amazon Prime and other streaming services, and allows you to connect up to 15 devices to the service simultaneously.
There's even a 15-day money-back guarantee, so you can try it out and - if you like it - you'll have a VPN for life for less than the cost of most rivals' single-year prices.
2. KeepSolid VPN Unlimited Lifetime plan
Now: $99.99 (50% off)
If you want to avoid paying a perpetual subscription for a VPN, then here's another lifetime deal. Usually $199.99, KeepSolid is discounting a lifetime plan to VPN Unlimited by 50%.
So for $99.99 (around £75) you use this VPN on your devices forever.
Like FastestVPN, VPN Unlimited doesn't have the same number of servers or the same coverage as NordVPN and other rivals (it has around 500 in 80 countries), but it does provide 24/7 live tech support, allows P2P downloads, has WireGuard - the latest and fastest encryption protocol - and the promise of a no-log policy.
3. Ivacy five-year VPN subscription
Was: $597 / £480
Now: $60 / £44.40 (90% off)
Ivacy's deal is one of the best around, knocking a whopping 92% off the usual monthly price.
It's a five-year subscription that works out at $1 per month, which is 74p if you're in the UK. That's an up-front payment of $60 / £44.40 which is a real bargain.
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.
It's one the cheapest VPN deals around and, as a bonus, you also get 2TB of encrypted cloud storage and a password manager included for the first year!
4. PureVPN two-year subscription
Was: $262.80 ($10.95 per month)
Now: $47.76 ($1.99 per month) (82% off)
PureVPN is offering 82% off the monthly price. This means the two-year subscription will cost you $47.76 (£35.28).
As with all these deals, you pay for the full subscription up front – not monthly. The monthly cost, for comparison, works out at $1.99/£1.47, which is quite competitive.
But if you're using a desktop web browser and move your cursor off the page you should see an "insane" 5-year deal appear which works out at just $1.50 per month (£1.11), but of course the total price is higher as it's for 60 months rather than 24.
Previously we've seen PureVPN offer an even better five-year deal, but that's not available right now. It cost $79.80 (£59.95) and the monthly cost was $1.33/£0.99.
5. NordVPN two-year subscription
Was: $286.80 / £212.16
Now: $79 / £70.15 (72% off)
NordVPN is offering 72% off its 2-year plan for the holiday season. This is the same discount it was offering on Black Friday.
NordVPN tops our round-up of the best VPN services you can buy, and its NordLynx protocol (based on WireGuard) offers huge speeds - if your internet connection is fast enough to take advantage of them.
The UK prices shown here include VAT, which is why the price initially appears cheaper when you click through to Nord's website.

6. Surfshark two-year subscription
Was: $310.80 / £215.76
Now: $59 / £53.14 (81% off)
For its Winter Sale, Surfshark is offering 81% off its two-year subscription.
This isn't the absolute best deal we've ever seen from the service, but it's still a great price for two years' access to a great VPN service, which is also one of the few which doesn't put a limit on the number of devices you can use with it at the same time.

7. Atlas VPN Premium 3-year subscription
From: Atlas VPN
Was: $359.64 - approx £269.64
Now: $49.99 - approx £37.75 (86% off)
Atlas VPN is a relatively new services, but it recently expanded from 18 to 32 locations including Japan, with Netflix support.
It doesn't tick as many boxes as NordVPN or Surfshark, but if you're just looking for the lowest 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.
For the holiday season, it's offering an additional three months free on top of the discounted three-year subscription.
8. Hidden24 two-year subscription
Now: £78.96 (£3.29 per month) (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.
