Thanks Spinmaster - Common sense advice and, unless a special deal is timely in the offing, I may well do as you suggest and purchase a shorter subscription to tide me over. BTW I am not stingy, this is all about the principle of me paying more than someone else to AirVPN for the same thing . Staff did hint about Christmas special deals so hopefully they will be forthcoming.
Thanks also Air4141841 - However, to you maybe hilarious to make a comparison, but to me even more funny that you had tried NordVPN twice !! . Subsequent to my post yesterday I read a number of reviews of NordVPN today and, based on the majority suggesting they were a waste of space (as you seem to have experienced also), I wouldn't try them once!
As for Staff - You finding "same thing" offensive is quite disappointing but maybe I wasn't 100% clear. I was never suggesting AirVPN was the same as NordVPN. What I said was:
"I won't pay more than my online colleagues for the same thing" - This was based on the AirVPN Black Friday deal giving a preferential deal to others and with me now effectively having to pay extra to secure my continued loyalty. On a matter of principle I would never entertain this with you or any other supplier/ retailer.
I'm sure I've been with AirVPN around 5 years. Despite the insults and ridicule directed towards me on this thread I will, as suggested, look out for the Christmas Specials and hopefully stick around.
If you read the user guide here: https://airvpn.org/topic/18339-guide-to-getting-started-links-for-advanced-users/ you would have seen this: "Since AirVPN isn't free, is it possible to buy a Lifetime subscription, as with other VPNs? Does AirVPN hold sales at all?" and then you would have seen this below it: "AirVPN's Black Friday sale has a discount of: 35%. Sometime around 20th November."
It is your own fault for not searching out there for deals. I read that and added it to my calendar as soon as I found this VPN company.
The Christmas one is here: "AirVPN's Christmas sale has a discount of: 20%. Sometime around the 20th December."
Good luck, read the user created guide and you'll find many helpful things.
Maybe you did read it, you did say you've been here 5 years. Here's my reminder to you, add it to your calendar right now.
