Cyber Monday VPN deals: the biggest bargains in 2023

Cyber Monday bargains are the best you'll find all year – and it's the same in the world of VPNs. So, while the weekend is nearly over, there's still time to grab a huge Cyber Monday VPN deal, save some cash, and head into the new year with your digital privacy intact.

For the past few years, I've followed all the biggest VPN deals from all the best VPN services, and now that Cyber Monday is here, plenty of VPNs are offering substantial savings. However, it's worth noting that some providers – ExpressVPN, for example – don't really do sales or discounts at any time of year.

Whether you're interested in staying more private online or simply want to unblock regional Netflix content, now's a great time to bag yourself a VPN. On this page, I'll be running down the best Cyber Monday VPN deals that extend into Cyber Monday, including an exclusive offer from NordVPN, the likes of which I've never seen before...

The best Cyber Monday VPN deals of 2023

The headline this year is easily NordVPN's incredible offer. Exclusive to Tom's Guide (don't say we never treat you), anyone signing up for the 2-year plan will get an Amazon gift card for free. Depending on which plan you choose this could be $10, $20, or $30, but you'll also get a bargain price of $2.99 a month.

IPVanish and Surfshark are also currently cheaper than they were over Black Friday and Cyber Monday last year, with PIA, NordVPN, and CyberGhost being pretty similar in terms of monthly cost. As such, there's a huge range of bargains on offer, and just about all the deals are live now – so it's time to pull the trigger if you need a VPN.

How did I choose these Cyber Monday VPN deals?

My choice and ordering of these deals is of course subjective, but there's a method to how I've ranked them.

While the very cheapest options (PrivadoVPN, PureVPN) do cost less money than, say NordVPN, I've placed NordVPN at the top because of the difference to the regular price, the added value that comes with free extra months and an Amazon gift card, and the sheer quality of the product.

This logic continues down the page. These aren't ranked in perfect price order as while I think it's still worth considering the very, very cheap options, slightly more expensive – yet still heavily discounted – VPNs offer a lot more to the user in the real world.

You'll also notice that my #1-rated provider ExpressVPN isn't here at all. That's because the premium brand chooses not to engage with any kind of discounting at all. There are plenty of other places I'll happily recommend ExpressVPN as my top choice, but a page on which I'm helping my readers save money is not one of them.

Lots of other incredibly cheap services haven't made the cut. This is because in Tom's Guide's expert VPN reviews, they simply weren't up to scratch, and I'm only interested in recommending the best of the best when it comes to personal online privacy.

Cyber Monday VPN deal FAQs

Why do you need a VPN?

In short, a VPN is a tool that can help you maintain anonymity online. It reroutes your traffic away from your Internet Service Provider's (ISP) servers and through its own private, encrypted servers. This means your ISP can't track what you're doing online. 

Also, each time you connect, your IP address changes. This makes it much harder for sites to track and locate you, meaning it's less likely for a detailed profile of your activity to build up. These are often sold to advertisers and marketers to show you 'relevant' products.

One of the most popular VPN uses is for unblocking streaming sites. Netflix, for example, shows different content to people in different countries. By connecting to a UK VPN server, for example, you can watch UK-exclusive titles from anywhere in the world. 

You can learn more in our detailed what is a VPN article.

Should I sign up to a VPN right now?

Yes! Right now almost every VPN provider on this page is as cheap as I've ever seen it, and a number of these deals are only available for a limited time.

If you're on the fence and waiting for the cheapest time to test out a certain VPN provider, now's the time to do it.
