Hello!

Haha, this sudden orange onslaught did provide a slight scare, I must admit. But this is new: you're now doing Halloween celebrations.

Staff, I suggest you also do Chinese New Year celebrations around January/February. That, coupled with the Black Friday, Christmas/New Year and Birthday celebrations, will ensure you've got the VPN market cornered from November to May. Leaving only a few months of summer for the competition, where in many places of the world, it'll be too hot to be sitting inside using a VPN anyway ;). At any rate, I think you've used up the last 9 years of marketing budget getting that font to work :D


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.

I really like the Eddie Client notice about this deal. I missed the Birthday promo due to not even knowing about it. The client notice is a very nice change. Can't help but wonder if the Black Friday promo may be a larger discount. Looking back on the Facebook page there wasn't even a Halloween promo offered and BF 2018 was a 67.5% discount. So debating pulling the trigger now or holding out for BF. hmmm choices choices. Please thought keep with the Eddie Client notices about promos that was a very nice change.

I got it as well. But I'm certain there's going to be those who find it annoying. Perhaps Staff should just add a "Notifications" tab underneath "Logs" or "Overview" and just let a red 1 appear - much like the forum notifications.

I appreciate the deal but the popup notification in eddie is really obnoxious. It shows up on every device whenever I launch eddie and made me think I had adware installed for a second. Its really not a good look.

Maybe just send an email when there are sales and give us an option to opt out of them in our account settings, like so many other services do.

I don't think so. Giving better prices only month after this promo wouldn't be fair for customers.

So, "trick or treat"? :D We're supposed to give you sweets, isn't it?

74% sounded unbelievable, but if you base all your prices on the most expensive plan and treat all > 1 month plans as already discounted, no wonder that number is so high. Realized, you did the same thing in all discounts last year, though.
The actual discount is substantially smaller, 35% across all X years plans, which is well within what we had in the past. But the surprise was successful! ❤️


Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Hello!

The sentences

Save up to 74% on AirVPN longer plans (*)

(*) When compared to 1 month plan price

should be more transparent than a ghastly ghost.

Kind regards

I virtually hardly ever come to the forums and sure enough your right the complainers are starting to flow in. Who would have thought a notice about saving money is a bad thing. Frankly there should be a check box in the Eddie client to disable such notices if it's not there already that way those that get butt hurt over a simple notice that isn't any different then one from their computer OS saying updates were done please restart to complete installation. Always going to be those that like a feature and those that don't can't make everyone happy no matter which side of the line they are on.

This is what happens all the time though in the US. Stores have deals on items just to find them cheaper right before or during Black Friday. So to say this is the best price it will be before the end of the year well it may not be. Then again those that wait it out could get burned for only 67.5% like last year or maybe even less of a discount. Only the Staff here know what they are going to do.

A notice about saving money is fine in an email. Having a popup on my computer telling me to "save money now!" is not the appropriate way to convey this information. Maybe it would have been in 1998, but its 2019 and popup ads are frowned upon by most people.

There is a reason every modern web browser blocks pop up ads by default. Its an annoying and disrespectful way to get someones attention.

We are paying customers and you already have our email addresses, just send us an email. That's how every other business communicates with their customers.

I'm very happy with my AirVPN service, but I feel this type of notification should be handled differently. Edited ... by spiderdisco

It's not an ad, though, is it?

For the record, a working email address is not required for registration here, so such a notification can end up nowhere. Also, did you just try to tell that you don't get spammed via email enough? :)

We can partially agree upon that at least. :) Maybe a way of setting it in the client area, but a bit difficult to implement, I must add.

Yes it is. Its an announcement promoting (advertising) a discount on their service. :)

No I was just saying that email is a more appropriate medium for spam, rather than a popup on my computer. :)

By saying "spammed via email enough" are you admitting that this is a form of spam? :) Edited ... by spiderdisco

I have to say I am very very happy about the pop up!
as long as it is only from time to time and really just about changelogs or promos, you can continue. I dont check my emails always and I would have missed this.

Another 3 years... thanks :D

I, for one, appreciate the notification of the promo but I agree that the implementation could be tweaked to be less intrusive. I think a 'scrolling ticker tape banner' or a badge in Eddie would be better.
