We know that birthday celebrations aren’t typically marked with VPN deals, but we suppose its no surprise that this exactly how NordVPN and IPVanish are celebrating theirs.

By sheer coincidence, both of these market-leading VPN providers are enjoying their eighth year anniversary this month – and both have some pretty sweet discounts to mark the occasion.

With IPVanish, for $47.88 or the equivalent of $3.99 a month you’d be getting one year’s worth of its VPN service and a year’s access to SugarSync cloud storage absolutely FREE. That’s a full 250GB space for all your photos, tunes and videos – a add-on that would normally cost in excess of $100.

Now if you select NordVPN instead, you’d be paying $125.64 for three years worth of the service! Not only does that only work out to only $3.49 a month, you also get one of the following randomly selected freebies when you sign up: one month, one year, two years, or three years extra of NordVPN.

Battle of the VPNs: NordVPN vs IPVanish

Don’t worry, this won’t be a Fury vs Wilder vs Fury-style showdown – we’ll just give you the pros of these popular providers.

If we’re talking streaming, we love the fact that NordVPN can unblock not only Netflix but BBC iPlayer too – meaning there’s a whole new world of content for you. But if we’re talking best value for money, IPVanish is unbeatable, you’re getting 10 simultaneous connections on one device for under $4 a month! 

But when it comes to security, we really rate the fact that NordVPN boasts a very strict zero-logging policy and an effective kill switch. We know in terms of security the NordVPN hack caused panic but the provider has taken significant steps to correct this, which is why we still rank it so highly and are confident in recommending its service.

However, we need to commend IPVanish’s excellent download speeds so you don’t need to worry about the VPN slowing down your device and it’s got plenty of powerful, configurable apps.
