currently Rakuten.COM has cash rebate for Nordvpn at 50%
I guess you have a US paypal account where they would send you the rebate or would they mail your cheque to Canada?

had it moved to my paypal account. pretty sure it was my main paypal account and not a US account. but it was 2.5 years ago so i can't confirm with my paypal history...

looking at my emails. looks like ebates.com sent a cheque to my paypal account in USD.

Thanks for the update. I haven't used my US pay pal account in years. I just remembered I have my US Paypal linked to my RBC US account so that's also an option for people to consider.

My 3 year Nord expired a few weeks ago and I was looking at Surfshark since they are usually cheaper and look comparable.

Any opinions?

FWIW, I noticed a lag in the Rakuten cashback showing up - in contacting Rakuten was I formed that Nord had not reported the sale yet, so I contacted Nord customer service, who opened a ticket. I got an email saying that they don't process the cashback until after the 30 day return window. I replied that I would have to reconsider the purchase in that case and cited the purevpn deal being cheaper and for a longer duration and magically they reported to Rakuten the same day.

Incidentally in looking at purevpn, decided to pass. Located in Hong Kong so anything could happen in the next 5 years.

Not sure why all the downvotes. NordVPN is a great service at a fairly reasonable cost when you sign up during a "promotion" such as this. They do happen frequently.

I believe it's like you said it yourself and it was already mentioned. This offer comes up frequently. Hence the downvotes.

Surfshark is similar to Windscribe premium. You can't compare these two to Nord. Nord is far superior.

They have an incredible array of multiple servers in a given country. They now use RAM servers, Their speeds are slightly faster than say, Express VPN. They have so many configuration options with very helpful tutorials. And their tech support is really good.

Oh, and proven they keep no logs.

Oh don't worry, THEY (VPNs) ALL keep logs.

When the governments really wanna know what's up, they will get them, don't you worry. lol

NORDVPN is related to TesoNet - not good, but for the price, can't go wrong.

Whatever, that's the world we live in today anyways.

just received email of a 3 year deal, possibly for existing customers only as it says log in to see deal. "We save the best deals for our loyal users. Here’s the Cyber Deal!

Buy the 3-year plan for $89 (2.47/mo.) and get 3 extra months on top"


and Rakuten.COM is still 50% off.

what was the price in OP?

He's right, but you're quick to try and virtue signal and put him down with your dumb accusations. If you need to be spoonfed go check out windscribes own blog where they got a few allegedly "no log" vpns to admit they do keep logs.

For anyone that actually cares about privacy and not just watching Netflix US then look into Dvpns or VPN companies that at least let you sign up with just an email and crypto.

Post a screenshot if you would so the rest of us can try to get the deal as well before the refund window closes?

on the Nordvpn main page the Rakuten button is red meaning activated, however once you choose a deal or login it turns purple meaning not activated? so not sure how that works for cashback..
