The gift can be one of four extra plans: 1 month, 1 year, 2 years or 3 years. 

The discount knocks £234.51 off the regular three-year price of the VPN service (£331.25). That means you pay £96.74 up front (which works out at £2.68 per month).

Head to NordVPN’s website to see this deal, which is refundable for 30 days.

Nord sits at the top of our chart of the best VPNs around and there are a few reasons that make it our favourite. It's fast, easy to use, offers 5,687 servers across 60 countries, and works with Netflix, iPlayer, HBO GO, ShowTime, Hulu and a bunch of other streaming services. 

If you’re itching to see what the latest streaming service is like, here's how to watch Disney+ in the UK using a VPN. Also see our article on how to watch BBC iPlayer abroad.

Nord offers a kill switch in its app, which automatically stops all internet activity if the VPN tunnel collapses. You can fine-tune which apps it should terminate, so not all apps have to lose their connection. Nord also offers a feature called Double VPN which routes your connection through two servers instead of just one.

Best VPN deals

Here are some other VPN deals available right now:

1. Ivacy five-year VPN subscription

From: Ivacy

Was: $597 ($9.95 per month)

Now: $80 - approx. £57.60 ($1.33 per month - approx 96p)  (87% off)

Ivacy's current deals aren't worth shouting about. But this 'secret' deal is. It's one of the best around, knocking 87% off the usual monthly price. To get it, follow the link above on a desktop web browser, and move your mouse cursor off the page and onto your browser's top bar. 

You should then see a Limited Time Offer with the deal.

It's a five-year subscription for which you'll pay the equivalent of $1.33 per month, which is about 96p. That's an up-front payment of $80 (around £57.60) which is an absolute 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.

2. VyprVPN three-year subscription

From: VyprVPN

Was: £335.16

Now: £45 (£1.88 per month)  (87% off)

VyprVPN's Spring Sale brings yet more huge discounts. The current offer is for a two-year subscription with 87% off.

The way the offer is presented, as with so many VPN deals, is misleading. It's a two year subscription with a full 12 months free. Yet the £45 cost, instead of being spread over 24 months is divided by 36 months to make it look even cheaper - which would mean no free months.

Still, even at £1.88 per month over two years with the free year after that, it's excellent value. 

If you're wondering why you should choose VyprVPN: it owns and manages all of its servers, and is a great choice if your priorities are security and privacy.

It also supports the fast WireGuard protocol and has 70 locations to choose from around the world.

3. Surfshark two-year subscription

From: Surfshark

Was: £223.68

Now: £42.99 (£1.79 per month)  (81% off)

Sign up for a two-year subscription of this great VPN to get it for just £1.79 per month.

Surfshark is one of the best-value VPN services and is one of the few which doesn't put a limit on the number of devices you can use with it at the same time.

4. Private Internet Access two-year subscription

From: Private Internet Access

Was: £259.74

Now: £56.99 (£2.37 per month)  (78% off)

Private Internet Access is offering 78% off its two-year subscription. It's currently ranked fifth in our best VPN chart – read our full review here.

The £2.19 per month price is only correct if you count the extra two months not as free but as paid months. It's a cheeky way of making it look cheaper than it really is. 

5. CyberGhost VPN three-year subscription

From: CyberGhost

Was: £392.04

Now: £77.61 (£2.15 per month)  (82% off)

CyberGhost is a great VPN service and its current offer works out at £2.15 per month over three years.

You also get three months on top of the three-year subscription for free. 

It's not as good as VyprVPN's deal, which is £45 for two years plus a whole free year, but it does offer a lot more servers and locations.

You'll find CyberGhost in our round-up of the best VPNs.

6. Hidden24 two-year subscription

From: Hidden24

Was: £119.76

Now: £78.96 (£3.29 per month)  (44% off)

Get Hidden24 VPN for just £3.29 per month instead of the usual £4.99.

It's 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.
