The service does allow 10 simultaneous connections so I think it is possible to share with others. I think family and friends are ok, but once you go beyond that circle, the question becomes how you would ensure your account isn't shared with the entire RFD community.
Thanks! I'm definitely only sharing this with family lol.

Got an email today that my accounts have merged. Basically, the end result is that my existing account has been extended by 3 years, and the newly created account is deleted. I had to send them info about the old account, and the purchase code from the deal after creating a new account off of it.

Anybody else try buying with a prepaid CC? Getting payment method declined.
Card is registered with card issuer with name, address, phone number ahead of time and same info used on stacksocial, but still declined.

Just to confirm, these are the steps from my understanding:
  1. Create a new account and redeem the code
  2. Send an email to support with the following info: new account, old account, and the code used to redeem the deal
Is that correct? I am guessing this is not a typical thing they do, so they don't have the option on the webpage and must go through support...

That matches what I did to have them merged. Response from support was very fast. I wouldn't hesitate to reach out if you have further questions.

OP tried to setup a group buy however a couple members backed out...if there is enough interest I might start one.

To confirm, I was able to merge my existing account with the 3 years I just purchased. They needed the activation # from Stack Social in order to merge the accounts.

I have used PIA before, I found it much faster than NordVPN.
With NordVPN my torrent is somehow capped near to 1Mbps dl speed.
PIA was better for me but NordVPN had a cheaper deal so I switched to check it out.

I did that a few years ago, and a friend got me a cease and desist warning. So you can do it, but their activity is linked back to you.

I just emailed support and told them I goofed and forgot to apply the code. They said they would honor it no problem, they'd just apply a credit to the charge. Easy stuff. That alone makes me want to shop with them again.
