Do you still get the Rakuten cashback if you use an extra code?

check out the sponsored locked thread under Hot deals PureVPN

Seems like a good deal - PureVPN 5 year $53USD with 10 connections
Dont know whether PureVPN provides a good service or not, you will have to do your own due diligence

I am currently using NordVPN and just purchased SurfShark ; i can confirm that Nord is much faster. At times i am getting only 50-65% speed with SurfShark when compared to Nord (both running wireguard). However, Surfshark has split tunneling so i may stick with it. Tbh the current blackfriday pricing is bad when compared to their past sales.

Terrible VPN with very bad history & bad performance. PureVPN & Its sister concern Ivacy are both owned by Gaditek (a pakistani shell).

For streaming and budget - Stick with Nord / Surfshark.

For more privacy, may be opt for Mullvad/ Proton / TorGuard etc

I've tried PIA, Ivacy, Air, Express and Nord. I've been doing the Nord yearly plan for 2? 3? years now. Nord's decent. I'm in the BC interior and the Vancouver gateway gives me usually ~ 90 - 95 % of my ISP's 300 Mbps (Shaw) on desktop PC wired ethernet. I resisted their 'Nordlynx' protocol at first as I though it was gimmicky, but now that's all I use and it is consistently faster than their UDP connection for me. For others ymmv

Nord does have what I'd describe as an 'aggressive' affiliate plan, and apparently they offer one of the higher rates to their affiliates. So people critical of Nord find themselves attacked by the Nord-swarm :)

Express is good, but pricey. Best customer support of the VPN's I've used though. Nord's CS is hit and miss.

That's unbelievable. I used Nord recently a few months ago connected to Vancouver (from Vancouver, also with Shaw) during their one month trial. I would get consistently around 120-140 with the occasional [rare] burst up to 180 Mbps/300 Mbps (60%) with the latest devices (fast cpus) via wired and wireless. The average speeds are less than half (about 47%) of the maximum ISP speeds which in my case is over 320 Mbps. I was using Open VPN protocol and Nordlynx.

Express VPN has slowed down recently and only has a few Canada East Servers — two in Toronto and one in Montreal. I think that's quite pitiful given their prices.

I suggest in no particular order: Windsribe, Nord, and Surfshark for torrenting and server selections. Surfshark is similar to Windsribe minus the lack of professionaliam of Windsribe.

I think I'm going to subscribe with Nord after reading all the comments in the thread. Just waiting for BF to see if there's going to be more cashback from Rakuten.

Brim credit cards are offering 40% in points back for a Nord subscription. Does anyone know how that would work to combine with Rakuten's 40% off?

$89*.40 = $35.60 cashback

$89 -
Rakuten - $35.60
Brim - $35.60

Total = $17.80?

Or would these cashback deals not stack?

No they wouldn't stack as you have to go through Brim's link which is an referral link.

when i first subscribe to Nordvpn, i created a US ebates account to take advantage of the cash back, because it was before i noticed they were available with ebates canada.

currently Rakuten.COM has cash rebate for Nordvpn at 50% and today i noticed Rakuten.COM has a refer a friend promo where each party will get $40. good if you don't have a Rakuten.COM account already. will make the deal sweeter.

as always, don't ask for referrals in open forum.
