There are plenty of cheap VPNs out there, even a couple of free ones (be careful with those). The main takeaway is that using one will inevitably slow your browsing, streaming and gaming. But by how much? Will you actually notice a difference, and is it worth paying for?
Now, CNET readers can get a two-year Surfshark VPN subscription for $59.76 with promo code CNETDEALSDAY. But that's not all: Using our code will also net you an additional three months for free, making it effectively $2.21 a month for 27 months. (This offer originally debuted as part of CNET's inaugural Deal Days sales event, but has now been extended.)
To quote the CNET review: "Surfshark imposes no data caps, and allows unlimited server switching and torrenting. I also had no problems using it to access Netflix. In a rare move for a VPN, it offers unlimited simultaneous connections. This functionality is wrapped up in an intuitive, easy-to-use interface that's recently undergone a slick revamp."

You can pay via the traditional credit or debit methods or through PayPal, Alipay and Bitcoin. The subscription comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee just in case you want to try the service out first. Surfshark also offers 24/7 chat support and a healthy amount of helpful articles and tutorials.
