These VPN deals mean you can pay less for privacy

“What’s a VPN?” we hear you ask. Well, firstly it stands for a “virtual private network” and it’s a piece of software that gives you more privacy and anonymity online by protecting your browsing activity.

When you connect to the internet on your computer it creates an encrypted, virtual tunnel between your device and the VPN server, meaning your data is more protected.

If this sounds like something you need, we’ve found the best VPN deals for August 2021:

Save up to 50% in Emma’s bank holiday sale

Well-known, reliable brand when it comes to bedding, Emma, is currently offering up to 50 per cent off its leading mattresses, bedding and pillows in its summer bank holiday sale.

Emma original pillow: Was £69, now £37.95,

While this wonderfully technical pillow would suit every kind of sleeper, it was our front sleeper’s favourite,” noted our writer in her review of the best memory foam pillows. It’s made up “of three separate layers of foam, all supportive but with a nice bit of spring, you can remove sections to bring the profile of the pillow up or down”. We can’t believe this is reduced by 45 per cent.

Emma hybrid mattress: Was £809, now £444.95,

While the original (was £699, now £384.45, is the bestseller, the hybrid is said to be even better, yet still affordable. Luckily, we put it to the test.

“If you like your mattresses on the slightly softer and bouncier side, you’re bound to love this Emma mattress that would be right at home in a five-star hotel,” praised our writer. “Whatever position you sleep in, you’ll enjoy the benefits of the support”. If you’re looking for a versatile option for people who sleep in different positions throughout the night, this is the bed for you.
