The great deal comes back.
3-year plan $3.49 per month
$430.20 US$125.64 billed every 3 years
Cashrewards 90% cashback
Cashback is eligible for new NordVPN customers only.
Assuming i can stack this with the 70% off promo?
Yes you can. In fact, a more meaningful title could possibly be
NordVPN 90% Cashback @ Cashrewards (Stack with 70% off 3 Years + Birthday Gift of up to 3 Years Free)
NordVPN 90% Cashback @ Cashrewards (Stack with 70% off 3 Years + Birthday Gift of up to 3 Years Free)
I'm actually looking at a reliable VPN. What does all this come out to haha?
Also, how is the speed? I'm currently on a 45 ish Mbps connection, what would the speed be after routing through the VPN?
@Omkar2: Just did a quick speed test, 45.3/17.8 normally, 44.2/17.3 with nord connected to an Australian server. I've found their speed to be reliable so I don't really turn it off anymore.
@Omkar2: i have 94mbps down and with nordvpn on i get 91mbps down. never drops out either.
They're fairly reliable.
They had some security issues which they sat on for way too long before going public.
If you're just after something to hide torrenting, watch/buy stuff in other countries, this is good.
IMHO using a VPN company for day to day stuff is pretty foolish.
@supabrudda: I've been for a month in Australia and I'm worried about torrenting. Do you really need a vpn for that here? I lived here for a year in 2014 and a friend downloaded a movie from my house (I was using tpg at the time) and i got a letter from them related to this. Is that still a thing here, or are everyone just being extra careful?
@gonzule: normally you get 3 letters before disconnection or anything like that…
i think they have to send the letters but they cannot do much else
for netflix etc dont need vpn but for other stuff it doesnt hurt
Their software (both Windows and Android) have problems when connecting from China, but if you e-mail support they'll walk you through how to access their servers through OpenVPN. They don't put this publicly so potential customers won't find out…
Bonus tedium, still kind of buggy (it randomly just times out like every 10 mins, you have to do a full re-connect), but speed is very respectable.
Can anyone chime in on which VPNs are trouble-free, fast, AND reliable in China?
@xrailgun: The great firewall is very, very good at detecting VPN connections, and killing them - for obvious reasons. There was a good article a while back about sneaking some shadowsocks proxy the the GFW.
How about posting the actually cost?
looks like it's hard to say because you could get bonus 1 month free or 3 years free… it's a lottery.
$12.56 US (after a cashback) gets you 3 - 6 years.
US$13 is like AU$20. Does this mean you get 6 years for $20?
Only if you're lucky enough to win 3 years as a birthday gift. I'd say assess the value as if you get gifted 1 month if free & if you get 3 years then its a bonus.
That be USD12.56 for 3 years after cash back?
Wonder how many actually win the 3 years plan on top as I only got 1 month:
Congratulations! You've won the 1-month plan
As promised — even though it's NordVPN’s birthday, you get the gift!
You have won the 1-month plan. It’s been added on top of the 3-year subscription you’ve bought.
Thank you for being part of our birthday celebration!
Fingers crossed that I receive my cashrewards!! I have slightly doubts that I really get 90% back.
To be compliant with advertising laws, I expect that there is some percentage gets the 3yr. Say, 0.01%? ¬¬
PIA has been good to me for a long time. This is tempting to jump ship
IME Nord is signifcantly slower.
Also have a worse record than PIA as far as security which may or may not be something you consider important.
Never had speed issues with Nord and their recent security issue was a bit overblown.
PIA is now owned by Kape Tech which has a history of making malware, so that's also another thing to consider.
Same, speed is fast enough to stream, assuming your own connection (e.g. NBN) is fast enough.
@xrailgun: Regardless of your NBN, if the VPN server is bottlenecked you will only be downloading/uploading as fast as the VPN server can go.
can you use this on existing plan? does it extend it?
im confused it says "Cashback is eligible for new NordVPN customers only."
But the birthday gift is for existing customers
VAT 10% Australia extra $12.56?
I put my location as NZ
Good news! You’ve got AUD 165.95
Your Cashback is on its way"
Hi, did you have to pay VAT 10% australia as well?
so did you just leave the VAT 10% to United States?
@Nick K: Yes, cos I'm in the USA :)
@adam: oh lol nevermind then.
Did you recieve that instantly?
Took a couple of hours.
sad only got 1 month bday gift
Hi, did you select Australia for VAT 10%?
Nick, can confirm that if you just select USA as your country you will still qualify for cashback
I see. I'll just put USA then. Thanks.
Not a bad gift indeed. Got gifted a 2 year plan
NordVPN is not very good in China at the moment. Have to use OpenVPN to connect and had to change servers almost daily until 2 weeks ago.
Looks like a great deal. But only need VPN when visiting China and ExpressVPN has been great in the past, would stick with what works.
YMMV with this deal. Mine didn't track the last time this deal came up (did everything correctly), good part I is ended up being refunded a couple of dollars more than I paid due to currency fluctuation during the 30-day trial, bad part is I'm now not a new customer.
same here just got a 1month
Thanks ordered, have never had a VPN but may as well see what all the fuss is about, could be handy for Willtv. Does this mean can change region for different Netflix content?
Hopefully with 90% cashback from USD$125 it will work out quite cheap
Yup! Give it a go on your phone, download the app and take it for a spin :)
Hey, I've installed the NordVPN app onto my 2015 bravia, the bloody app says 'You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy. Please turn off ….'. I've tried signing out, restarting the app (although may have to do a forced close?), still no good.
I'd chromecast from phone or notebook but the jolly cast button isn't even there either ffs…
damn only got the 1-month gift
I've never felt the need to get VPN's, don't know how ppl get sent letters etc. But hopefully the 90% will come through I had to pay in GBP in the UK
Hmm it doesn't do much, but maybe in 3 years time it will be necessary for torrenting etc
Hi store rep,
Could you please explain this to me.
I got this deal trough your cashrewards app. I paid US$ 125 (around A$ 179) but got an email that I will receive A$ 51.63 in couple of months. How $51 is 90% of $179?
I already contacted the support time but no reply yet.
Hey mate you must have used shopback with their current 30% off instead of cashrewards 90% off deal.
I got an email from cash reward for $165.83 AUD return
Hi SinaOzbargain. Can you please check your Cashrewards account and confirm. There were a handful of transactions reporting at the old rate that have since been fixed. Thanks.
I don't mean to highjack this thread. However, I created a support ticket yesterday when I purchased NordVPN. I paid around $190AUD and I received an email that indicating I will get $51.63 in a few months. When I purchased there was 75% cashback going, now there is 90%. Regardless, neither of these equates to $51.63AUD. I have logged into my Cashrewards account and nothing has changed.
Is this something you can look into?
Can you please refresh your CR account and check again. These are all fixed. Thanks.
Thanks mate - showing correctly now!
OH YEAH!! GOT 1yr Free on top!
Monkeymagic, No mate it is cashrewards. I can forward or send a screenshot if you want.
No thank you, I trust you.
My cashrewards didn't process. What did I do wrong? It did take me back to the main page after I paid and asked me to activate it again. Why is it so inconsistent?
Thanks store rep. It was fixed in my account. :)
Will using a different email work to make me a new customer
Did other people see the cashback show up in their account immediately? I have checked out but just seeing the clock activity with no confirmation yet. Also only got one month 😞
Tracking for NordVPN takes anything up to 6 hours. It's definitely not immediate.
New to cashrewards. I followed the onscreen and got the 3yrs 70% off offer. How do i get the 90% cashback ?
My second question is does your cashrewards email and the one you have subscribed to NordVPN needs to be same ? I have used it differently. :-(
Hope to get some advise and help.
Considering you get up to 10 devices at the same time, Anyone wants to split the 3 year subscription?
Just FYI, it's only 6 devices, not 10.
I have been waiting for this since I missed last Surshark deal. So, this is a bonus for me that I'm getting Nordvpn. I have paid $209 since I wanted to select Australia and pay the VAT. I have got cashback of $165. So, that's effectively $44 for 3 years. Not bad for a guy who wants to have the vpn option handy but doesn't use it often.
Once I'm are member, I have got 24x7 live chat support and have asked them what's the big deal about VAT. The representative told you can select your country for compliance otherwise it doesn't matter and Nordvpn itself doesn't track where you are purchasing from etc.
Sweet! I selected United States for that
Update: My speeds without vpn are 115Mbps (download) and 18Mbps (upload). With vpn these numbers have changed to 55Mbps (download) and 5-10Mbps (upload) based on multiple tests.
I have also observed that the lower your connection speed is, the slighter the difference. For example, I was using Belong wifi in the morning that had 39Mbps download and it dropped to 31Mbps after connecting to vpn whereas now I'm connected to Boost mobile network with 115Mbps and dropped to 55Mbps. Wondering if 55Mbps is the cap for NordVPN
No cap and You should only lose about 3mbps. i normally get 94mbps down and with nordvpn on i get 91mbps down. never drops out either.
Got 1 month free only, but still happy with this deal. Cheers.
Spewing! Cashback is eligible for new NordVPN customers only
Create a new account then?
only if you could choose when the 3 year subscription starts otherwise you end up with two subscriptions … for the same time period
Pointless, as I have just under 3 years remaining on my current subscription.
Hell yeah I signed up.
I read up on their security policy and they keep no logs too for those of you interested.
Yes it's safe to be a pirate me matey.
There's something ironic about enabling tracking to facilitate the purchase of a VPN solution.
Signed up and didn't realise I already had an account with the email used. Can I cancel and sign up again with a different email?
Any existing accounts getting cash back?
I suggest you to wait for a day and then check if the cashback is reflecting in the rewards. If it doesn't, then you can try cancelling and signing up again.
yeah that is what i was thinking :)
Did you get the cashback?
Will end up to be $25.01 for 37months .. not bad
Unexpected use case: my ISP seems to have bad routing to YouTube causing lag and quality drops in the evenings (connection is a solid 14Mbps on ADSL, shouldn't happen). If I connect to an AU server with Nord though I have zero issues, perfectly solid 1080p or 1440p stream.
I just signed up to Cash Rewards, when I click on the Nordvpn.. It re-directs me to the NORDVpn website…
Is this supposed to happen? Also how am I to trust that cashrewards will give me the 90% cashback? Does cashrewards detect the new account that I create on Nordvpn before payment so they apply the cashback?
I just want to be sure to get this otherwise I may not want to pay for it
I would like to know as well.
I assume that the link that you clicked from Cashrewards tracks to the purchase of the service (NordVPN)
You can see it in 'My Click History' with the date and time.
I just noticed this!!! Thanks for letting us know. Hrmm Cashrewards just changed to 60% cashback… damn it!!
Yeah but the cashback rate was 90% when we signed up, so they need to honour it!
@lberation: how long until you receive the 90% back? Let us know when you get it so I know it works
@ZRSHIFT: "My Rewards
Your recent activity will show here once you start transacting.
Note: If you cant see your transaction here, you may need to wait up to 7 days following your purchase to see it here."
@lberation: Have u received ur cashback from cashrewards yet?
Purchased, it didn't track through cashrewards after 2 days. Only got 1 month bonus. Decided not worth the trouble and getting it cancelled and refunded.
Yeah it says up to 7 days to appear…not sure what do.
Theres a 30-day money-back guarantee with nord, so i'm just going to wait a week and a bit extra. If it doesn't track by then i'll just cancel and get a refund.
For $200 bucks, get your refund and don't look back. Unless you got a good free few years.
Been 4 days now and still nothing tracked with Cashrewards, Are others having trouble?
