After long, awkward hours discussing political differences across a roasted bird, we can’t wait to join the herds of Black Friday shoppers. However, as much as being trampled for the latest OLED sounds appealing, we prefer to do at least a bit of our shopping online.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday have turned into one weekend of deals as more Americans turn to online retailers instead of brick-and-mortar ones. While there is some savings on the latest physical tech, you’ll find the highest value when shopping for digital products.
We’re here to guide you through the best Black Friday deals in the cloud. Buying into a subscription at this time can often save you 50 percent or more off the original price, so if you need a VPN, web hosting or cloud storage solution, now’s the time to jump.
VPN Black Friday Deals
Let’s start off with the easiest way to stay safe while online: virtual private networks. We’ve found these three great deals.
ExpressVPN is easily the best VPN provider on the market, but its price is higher than most of the competition. You can save a lot off that price by buying in this Black Friday, though. ExpressVPN is offering three free months of service with any new annual subscription, giving you 15 months of service for the price of 12.
You can read our ExpressVPN review to see why we like it, or just snag the deal before it ends. It’s running from now until 10:00 a.m. GMT on Tuesday, November 27, 2018. There’s no real risk, either, with ExpressVPN’s 30-day money back guarantee.
NordVPN is a close second, as you can see in our comparison of ExpressVPN vs. NordVPN. While the prices are already low — you can read our NordVPN review for the latest rate — you can save up to 75 percent when purchasing three years upfront. You’re getting over $400 worth of service for just $100.
This deal is still backed by NordVPN’s 30-day money back guarantee, so there’s no risk in picking up a plan and seeing how you like it. There isn’t a definitive end-date, though, so it’s best to act quickly.
PureVPN isn’t on the level of top providers in the VPN space, as you can see in our PureVPN vs. ExpressVPN comparison. Even so, with its massive server network and long term subscriptions, PureVPN offers good value.
It offers an even better if you pick it up this weekend. The five-year plan isn’t an official option in PureVPN’s lineup, showing only as a pop-up. This weekend, though, you can purchase it for less than what the normal pop-up displays. Furthermore, the rate continues upon renewal, so you can continue to get an excellent deal.
You can learn more about PureVPN in our PureVPN review, but it’s worth it to buy a plan and try it yourself with a generous 31-day money back guarantee.
Thanksgiving for Cloud Storage
The cloud storage space seems to have very little going this year, but we do have one deal for you.
pCloud is one of the best cloud storage providers, ranking second among the best cloud storage providers. While there are monthly and annual subscriptions available, pCloud is focusing on lifetime deals this Black Friday. You can purchase either 500GB or 2TB of storage for life at 75 percent off.
As a single payment, we couldn’t think of a better value. You’re truly buying a product that you can own for life. You can learn more about pCloud in our pCloud review, or bite the bullet and buy a lifetime’s worth of storage today. The deal runs until Monday, November 26, 2018.
Web Hosting on Cyber Monday
We’ll finish up with some great deals in web hosting. All of them run out on Monday, so be quick.
Hostinger is among the best website builders and hosting combos for its easy to use interface and low price tag. While it’s a great value on its own, you can purchase hosting on Black Friday for as low as $0.80 per month. In fact, all of Hostinger’s products are marked down, some as much as 90 percent.
We’ll let the pricing tables, which you can find by following this link, speak for themselves, though. You can compare the prices in our Hostinger review to see the value. The deal runs until Monday, December 3, 2018.
Siteground is our first pick for the best web hosting for WordPress. Between its easy WordPress migration and one-click WordPress install, it’s an ideal choice for new and current WP users. You can get hosting for 75 percent off now, too.
The ideal starting point is GrowBig, which allows multiple websites to share 20GB of storage space. It’s suitable for around 25,000 visits per month and comes with simple WordPress integration. You can read our SiteGround review to learn more, but make sure you sign-up quickly. This deal times out on Monday, November 26, 2018.
A2 was a strong contender for our best web hosting guide with its excellent server selection and optimal security. It’s running multiple deals for Black Friday that could save you up to 67 percent on a normal subscription.
You can find the deals and codes to get them below. If you want to learn about A2, make sure to read our A2 Hosting review.
- 67 percent off shared and managed WordPress hosting with code: SAVEBIG
- 50 percent off managed and core VPS with code: BLKVPS
- 40 percent off reseller hosting with code: BLKSELL
- 50 percent off selected SSD dedicated servers with code: 50DEDI
Those are the best deals in the cloud happening this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Now is the time to pick some extra storage space, start that new website and secure your online connection, as it’s rarely ever cheaper.
