ibVPN is promoting their summer sale as 50% off but in reality you can save up to 69% off the normal monthly price when you sign up for a year of Standard VPN service.  The reason is that ibVPN isn’t only discounting their monthly terms.  They are applying the coupon code to all terms.  That means you can stack the savings on top of their normal term discounts to save up to 69% off.  That makes their summer promo an even better deal.  Let’s take a look at their pricing page.  You will notice that the Standard VPN plan shows the discounted pricing.  The other plans are not included in the summer promotion.

As you can see in the screenshot above the ibVPN team has put together a wide range of accounts.  Those are just a few of the options available on their site.  My favorite is the Ultimate VPN plan which gives you access to their full network and SmartDNS service.  The Torrent VPN package is also very good.  Those who don’t need encryption and want to watch content in other countries will find ibDNS, their SmartDNS implementation, a good choice.  They also have accounts focused on torrent users and others that target small businesses.

OverPlay Christmas in July Promo

As the weather continues to heat up, the OverPlay team is having some extra fun.  They just announced a Christmas in July promotion.  From now through August 1st anyone who signs up for a year of VPN or SmartDNS service will save 25% off.  The sale combines with their existing term discounts.  To take advantage of the offer simply visit the OverPlay Christmas in July page and enter coupon code JULYXMAS at checkout.

OverPlay Christmas in July

The Summer Games are just around the corner so this is a perfect time to sign up for SmartDNS access.  Just about every channel you can think of will be covering the Olympics.  That’s fine if you’re sitting at home in front of the television, but what if you happen to be out of town during the Games?  That’s where SmartDNS comes in.  You can enjoy the comforts of home by connecting to OverPlay.  Their SmartDNS service will help you get around any geo restrictions.  Watch all the action on your favorite channels.

When it comes to the Olympics, you have plenty of broadcast options.  Those with a US cable or satellite subscription can watch all the action on NBC Sports Live Extra.  It works great from within the US.  If you will be traveling outside the country, OverPlay will unblock access to the streaming service.  The same is true for BBC iPlayer for those who want to watch the UK coverage.  This was a very popular option in 2012 when the Summer Games took place in London.  The BBC provided great coverage.

You can read our OverPlay review to learn more about the service.  They offer two plans as follows:

  1. SmartDNS + VPN – priced from $6.25 a month
  2. SmartDNS – priced from $3.12 a month

The prices shown above include the 25% discount for the Christmas in July promotion.  The plan you select really depends on your goals.  If you want to protect your online privacy then the choice is simple.  You will want to go with the SmartDNS + VPN plan.  You can connect to any of their VPN servers and encrypt your connection.  This will help protect your privacy while at home and on the go.  I highly recommend this option.  Those who don’t need privacy protection can pass on the VPN.  The OverPlay SmartDNS will unblock access to channels around the world without the need for encryption.

Not sure which plan to choose?  If price isn’t an issue then I strongly recommend the combo plan.  This will give you the privacy protection of a VPN and uncensored Internet using their SmartDNS.  Remember that the Christmas in July deal ends on August 1st so you’ll want to sign up soon to take advantage of the offer.

PureVPN Xmas Holiday Special

PureVPN is celebrating Christmas and the holiday season with some of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen on their VPN service.  They didn’t stop there.  PureVPN had more gifts for new members.  Anyone who signs up for a year of VPN service will receive a second year free plus two years of free SmartDNS.  Sign up for unlimited VPN and SmartDNS service from just $2.08 a month during the promotion.  Given the price and extras we recommend the annual plan.  You can visit the PureVPN Holiday Special page for more details.

PureVPN Holiday Offer

Let’s take a quick look at the PureVPN Christmas offer.  New members will enjoy two years of access to PureVPN’s full network of servers along with free SmartDNS service by signing up for a their annual plan.  You can use PureVPN’s client to access both VPN and SmartDNS.  The difference is encryption.  Here’s a brief explanation of each included service:

  • VPN Service – PureVPN manages a network of over 500 servers in 121 countries around the world.  You can use their Windows and Mac software.  Along with mobile apps for iOS and Android to access any server location.  When connected to their VPN your data is encrypted.  This adds a layer of protection and helps ensure your online privacy.
  • Smart DNS – unlike VPN, the SmartDNS service is specifically set up to unblock access to content in other countries.  For example you can stream Netflix US from outside the United States (with a Netflix membership) or watch BBC programming from outside the United Kingdom.  SmartDNS doesn’t include encryption.  That means you’re not protecting your privacy but the connection is faster.  It can also help users in the United States get around ISP speed restrictions.

You can read our PureVPN review to learn more about their service.  They offer all new users a 7 day money back guarantee.  Just be aware that to be eligible for a refund you need to keep the bandwidth under 500 MB.  That’s not much for those who download or use streaming services like Netflix or Hulu.  I think you’ll be pleased with the PureVPN service.  Both their VPN and Smart DNS are easy to use.  They have a great support staff if you need help along the way.  Remember to sign up during the holiday promotion to save and enjoy free SmartDNS.

HideIPVPN Summer Promo

As temperatures heat up so do the VPN deals.  HideIPVPN is celebrating with a Summer promotion.  You can save up to 90% off their VPN and SmartDNS services by signinig up by June 14.  The savings includes 90% off 1 month, 70% off 3 months, and 50% off a year.  That may seem odd to save more on 1 month than a year.  The reason is that the promotion is an intro deal meaning that you save off the first billing cycle.

HideIPVPN Summer Promo

HideIPVPN offers a wide range of VPN plans along with Smart DNS service.  They are discounting all the plans during their Summer promo.  Here’s a look at the discounted pricing.  Remember the sale will be active through June 14th so if you’re interested in trying HideIPVPN this is the perfect time to sign up.  In my opinion it is best to sign up for a year during the promotion.  Otherwise you can enjoy the first month of any plan for $0.99 but the second month will revert back to retail pricing.

HideIPVPN Summer Promo pricing:

HideIPVPN offers both VPN and SmartDNS.  The main difference is privacy.  If you want to protect your online privacy then a VPN is the right option.  Their VPN provides encrypted access through a network of VPN servers in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Netherlands and Germany.  You can choose the best VPN plan based on server locations.  Most their VPN plans also include SmartDNS access free of charge.

Smart DNS services differ from VPN in that they do not offer encrypted access.  You can think of SmartDNS as a proxy that helps unblock content in other countries.  It doesn’t provide encryption like a VPN so you won’t have that extra layer of privacy and anonymity.  It’s also faster since encryption adds overhead.  HideIPVPN SmartDNS service costs less than VPN.  With unlimited access to unblock sites in the US, UK and Poland.

HideIPVPN won’t leave you guessing as to which sites and services you can unblock using SmartDNS.  Paid services like Netflix will require that you have an account.  Their SmartDNS service will give you access to the Netflix site as if you were sitting in the United States.  That’s just an example.  Here’s are just a few of the sites that the HideIPVPN SmartDNS service will help you unblock:

  • United States – Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, Crackle, HBO GO, CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, Spotify, Pandora
  • United Kingdom – Netflix, BBC iPlayer, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Sky Go, NOW TV, LOVEFILM
  • Poland – Kinoplex,,,, Cineman, Strefa VOD,, HBO GO

Visit and sign up by June 14 to save.  Follow us @VPNSP for the latest VPN deals.

SmartyDNS Mother's Day Sale

Here’s a quick breakdown of the SmartyDNS discount pricing during their holiday season promotion:
