Our Black Friday sale has started! Get up to 50% off Proton Mail and Proton VPN

Share this page

Update Nov. 30, 2019: Because Proton Mail only offers discounts once per year, we have decided to extend our Black Friday promotion until 11:59 PM on Dec. 8, 2019, San Francisco time. (That’s 2:59 AM Dec. 9 in New York and 8:59 AM Dec. 9 in Geneva, Switzerland.) This extension will give anyone who wasn’t able to take advantage of the deal last week one extra week to save between 33% and 50% on Proton Mail Plus, Proton VPN Plus, or both.

If you’re ready to do more with your inbox and support our mission, now is the best time of the year to subscribe to Proton Mail Plus. We only go on sale once a year.

As a new user or a user with a free plan, you can take advantage of our special Black Friday deals and save between 33% and 50% on your subscription

Our Black Friday promotion will run from today until Friday, Nov. 29, after which it will no longer be possible to get Proton Mail at a discount. Sign up for Proton Mail or log in to your account to get the deal now. (Update: We have extended our Black Friday promotion until 11:59 PM on Dec. 8, 2019, San Francisco time.)

A Proton Mail Plus plan gives you these key benefits:

  • Secure email using end-to-end encryption to protect against cyber attacks
  • Privacy protection since no one, not even Proton Mail, can access your inbox
  • A more powerful inbox with 5 email addresses, more custom folders and labels, custom filters, auto-responder, the option to host emails for a custom domain (e.g. yourname@yourdomain.com), and much more

Black Friday for existing paid users

Most companies do not have Black Friday offers for existing subscribers, and we may not do so in the future. However, this year we are bringing back 2-year plans for existing paid users. If you’re already a paying user, or interested in Proton Mail Professional or Visionary, you can get a 33% discount on any subscription with a 2-year plan. If you get a 2-year plan that has both Proton Mail and Proton VPN, you can get an additional 20% off for a total of nearly 50% off.

To get the promotion, you must first log in to your Proton Mail account. Then you will need to click Settings and navigate to Dashboard. In the drop-down billing cycle menu, you will see the 2-year (33% Off) option.

You can use the 33% discount to upgrade to any paid plan. (This 33% discount is available for Professional and Visionary subscriptions as well.) 

With this deal — combined with the bonus inbox storage and extra VPN connections upgrades which existing paid users recently received for free — we’re providing even more value to those who have supported our mission the longest.

What your support means

We believe you should be in control of your own data. That’s why we’re working to build an Internet where services don’t abuse your privacy or sell your data to advertisers. When you sign up for a Proton Mail paid plan, you not only get a better email experience — you’re choosing to support an Internet that puts people first. 

Thanks to your support, in 2020 we will be releasing a brand new redesigned Proton Mail inbox, along with Proton Calendar and possibly also Proton Drive. Black Friday is our only promotion of the year, so now is a great time to upgrade if you are thinking of supporting Proton Mail and would like to get access to more features and functionality. 

Black Friday offers for Proton VPN

All Proton accounts come with access to the free version of Proton VPN, our award-winning virtual private network. Originally created to protect Proton Mail users with heightened security needs, Proton VPN is now used by millions of people to encrypt their Internet traffic, keep their online activity private, and access censored or blocked content.

With a paid Proton VPN Plus subscription, you get unlimited bandwidth, the fastest speeds, access to servers in 43 countries, support for file sharing/BitTorrent, and the ability to securely stream content globally (YouTube, Netflix, BBC, HBO, Amazon Prime, etc.). 

You can get the Black Friday bundle including Proton Mail Plus and Proton VPN Plus together for 50% off the normal price. Here’s how:

  • New users (those who don’t already have a Proton account) can access this promotion on our Black Friday page.
  • Existing free users (i.e. you have free Proton Mail and/or Proton VPN accounts) can access this promotion by logging in at mail.proton.me and clicking on the Black Friday button.
  • Existing paid users can access this promotion at mail.proton.me. Then go to Settings -> Dashboard, select a 2-year plan, and select any paid Proton Mail plan with a paid Proton VPN plan. At checkout, the 33% 2-year discount will be combined with a 20% bundle discount, which gives you approximately 50% off.

If you would like to get Proton VPN Plus on its own, you can get between 33% and 40% off. 

  • New users (those without Proton accounts) can access this promotion on our Black Friday page.
  • Existing free users can access this promotion by logging in with your Proton account at account.protonvpn.com.

Thanks for your support!

We’re fortunate to have a like-minded and enthusiastic community, without whom Proton Mail wouldn’t exist. Thank you again for your support!

Frequently asked questions

When does the promotion end?

(Update: We have extended our Black Friday promotion until 11:59 PM on Dec. 8, 2019, San Francisco time.)

The Proton Black Friday promotion ends at 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 29, 2019, San Francisco time. That’s 2:59 a.m. Nov. 30 in New York and 8:59 a.m. Nov. 30 in Geneva.

Is the promotion for both new and existing users?

Yes, there are offers for both new, free, and current paying users. For new users, you can find the offers on our Black Friday page. For existing free users, you can log in at mail.proton.me and click on the Black Friday button. For existing paying users, you can get 33% off by switching to a two-year billing cycle by going to your account settings at mail.proton.me Dashboard->Plans and Prices. The discount increases to nearly 50% off if you get both Proton VPN and Proton Mail together with your two year subscription.

What if I also want to get Proton VPN?

You can get the Black Friday bundle including Proton Mail Plus and Proton VPN Plus together for 50% off the normal price. For new users, you can find the offers on our Black Friday page. For existing free users, you can log in at mail.proton.me and click on the Black Friday button. For existing paying users, you can see all bundle deals in your dashboard at mail.proton.me.

Is there a Black Friday offer for Professional or Visionary Plans?

Yes, it is possible to get a 33% discount on Professional and Visionary by subscribing to a 2-year plan. Details can be found in the “Black Friday for existing paid users” section above.

What happens to my existing paid plan?

If you are already a paying Proton Mail or Proton VPN user and you take advantage of this promotion, the new plan you select will replace your existing plan. However, when you go to check out, we will automatically credit you the unused balance of your existing subscription, and this is added as a proration credit. Thus, you don’t lose the money you paid for your existing plan.

Will I keep the discount when my plan runs out? What price will my plan renew at?

At the end of your subscription period (one or two years, depending on the plan you chose), your plan will automatically renew with the following discounts:

  • 1-year plan (20% discount)
  • 2-year plan (33% discount)
  • 2-year plan (Proton Mail + Proton VPN bundle) (47% discount)

How are discounts calculated?

The discount percentages are based on the difference between the monthly discount offer price and the regular monthly price for each plan.

What if I got the Black Friday deal in the past, can I get this deal?

You don’t need to get this deal because you already got the deal. Previous Black Friday offers were for 2-year plans, which will automatically renew with a 33-47% discount depending on which offer you purchased previously.

Can I pay for a Black Friday deal using Bitcoin?

You can pay in Bitcoin to get the Black Friday deal but not from the landing page or from your account dashboard directly. If you have never used our service before, you have to sign up first. Then login at mail.proton.me and go to Settings -> Dashboard, click on the “Add credits” button, choose Bitcoin as your payment method, and add a sufficient amount for the promotion you’d like to get. After the credits appear in your account, you can then pick the plan you want, check out, and the credits will be automatically applied.

What if I don’t see the Black Friday deal in my Dashboard?
