Ok thanks will live chat with them.
How long does it take for Shopback to track the transaction?

Not too sure but mine was tracked in the morning. I applied around midnight yesterday.

Give it a day or two.

Haha of course. I am a purevpn user myself.

purevpn advertised that they worked in China (to bypass GFW) and they also claimed to have China servers for bypassing China geo blocked contents. However both did not work even after I contacted them and got a few alternative servers.

Later I paid for AJS for China geo blocked contents.

Technical support is not bad. Speed is so so. I do not use Netflix so I do not test Netflix.

Just signed up.
NordVPN seems to be better than PureVPN for Netflix.
Connected to Netflix US, playback was smooth. PureVPN buffered quite frequently the last time I tried.

so for the current black friday discount, its USD95.23. After applying shopback 90%, the final cost for 2 years is only USD9.52?

is that correct?

Thanks for the images!

Went to see the checkout page again and I realised they included VAT inside the cost when selecting Singapore. Did you choose USA for the country instead?

I chose Malaysia :s13: and used this code for an extra month free. You can see it in the Shopback app/website too.

anyway the MMANUTS code works for shopback.

i used it and got an extra month free. so its 24 + 4 months

For nordvpn 90% cashback promo, do you have to use the same email address for shopback and nordvpn?
means sign up to nordvpn using a new email address so as not to be related to shopback account?

Tax is excluded when computing the 90%

$104 is correct for 90% cash back

Oh ya 1 question, was checking the old posts of this thread (very useful)

Have you already wrote in to NordVPN to stop recurring payment? I just did, not sure if anyone succeeded. I paid with CC to get the points :(

Yup yup... wrote in and they deactivated it. Will be able to see on your dashboard that there is no recurring payment
