Hotspot Shield Back to School Giveaway

For those new to Hotspot Shield they have a free ad-supported version and a paid Elite version of the service.  I’m not a big fan of ad-supported privacy services.  To me they defeat the purpose of using a VPN.  With that said HotSpot Shield is one of the best and their Elite version knocks out the ads and provides faster access.  The discount on annual VPN access and $500 worth of gift cards is a very nice way to promote the service.

You can read more about the contest on this Hotspot Shield Facebook page.  The rules look pretty simple.  There’s no purchases necessary to win and you can only enter once.  For each friend you refer to the giveaway the AnchorFree team will give you an extra entry.  The contest will help them build an even stronger social following while providing you with a chance to win a $100 gift card or a year of free VPN Hotspot Shield Elite.
