Hey! I hope you’re enjoying the holidays. It’s late here in Tanzania, so I’m going to make this short and sweet.
If you plan to use the internet at any time during your travels, a VPN will be your best friend. In some countries, certain websites or apps are blocked. In order to access them, you will need the assistance of a VPN. A VPN is also good for helping protect your online privacy.
What’s A VPN?
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network that’s used to protect your data and privacy when browsing the internet, emailing or checking your online accounts. VPNs allow users to safely browse the web and access personal data through public networks. You can mask your location, IP address, and online activity. VPNs help protect your data from cybercriminals and companies who want to track your browsing habits or sell your personal information to third party websites. With a VPN, you can keep sensitive personal information such as financial data, passwords, and your browsing history hidden. Getting started with one is easy. You can download a VPN application to your pc or mobile device.
The VPN that I currently use is through Surfshark. It’s ranked among the best VPNs of 2020 by the U.S. News & World Report. By clicking here to use my referral link, you’ll receive a free bonus of 30 days.
To help you save on your purchase of Surfshark or a number of other VPN brands, here’s a welcome bonus and some great cashback deals from Rakuten. To qualify for the bonus, you’ll need to be a first-timer and make qualifying purchases within 90 days (see the fine print at registration). You’re not limited to VPNs. Get discounts from Macy’s, Groupon, Kohl’s, Lowe’s and so many other brands, too.
How to take full of advantage of this blog post and the proposed savings
- Click here to sign up with Rakuten and add your method for cashing out.
- Once you’re registered, at the bottom of your browser you should see a button that says “Add to (browser name)”. Click that to add the extension to your browser.
- Return to this blog post and click the Surfshark link. The extension will automatically offer you whatever cashback discount is available for the product.
- Activate the discount and make your purchase. If you have a credit card that offers cashback or airline points, use that for even more savings. After purchasing, you’ll be able to check your Rakuten account to see how much cash you can expect to be added to your account. As a new Rakuten member, you can expect to receive the welcome bonus if your purchase qualifies (again, check the fine print at sign up). As a new Surfshark customer, you can expect a bonus of 30 days added to your VPN service term.
Quality VPNs can be somewhat expensive, but there are ways to work around the prices. I hope you found this helpful and that you enjoy the savings.
Until next time!
