Say if you’re living in the US, the premium plan costs you $17.99 per month. However, if you buy it from Turkey, it drops to $7.49! You save $126 on streaming content every year. When you split the cost with the other three, you make the monthly subscription fee as low as $1.87.

How to get Netflix premium at $7.49/month?

1) First, you need a VPN service that hosts servers in Turkey.

There’s always a paywall when you need to switch to a specific region (even when you choose those “free” VPNs), so we recommend you use a paid VPN such as Nord VPN, which has 15+ servers in Turkey. (Note that some VPNs can’t bypass Netflix’s restriction and even when you’re connected to Turkey, the price remains the same.)

Don’t pressure it since the paid VPN services always come with a 3-month money back guarantee. To make it more affordable, you can take advantage of Nord VPN’s 75% OFF discount codes.

2) Once you have the Nord VPN, log in and you can change your IP address to Turkey easily.

2) Go to Amazon India, and sign in with your Amazon account. Once done, click the JOIN PRIME NOW banner at the upper right corner.

3) You will be redirected to PrimeVideo.com, and you may need to log in again. Then you can choose between a 3-month subscription and an annual subscription. The annual subscription would provide a better value if you need Prime Video for a whole year.

4) Complete the payment and then you’re good to go.

It’s worth mentioning that US Prime Video subscribers enjoy by far the biggest library, so you might as well connect to a US server by using a strong VPN. A VPN like Nord VPN can navigate any barriers that Amazon has to combat VPNs.

If you have used a strong VPN to connect to a US server and you still can’t access the content you want on Amazon Prime Video, clear the cache and reset your settings, and then reconnect.

4. Adobe CC

For designers, photographers, vloggers, Adobe CC is a must. However, Creative Cloud is always so expensive, especially for young people who just have started their careers. The good news is that you can use a VPN to make it more affordable.

How much can you save on Adobe CC with a VPN?

For people who live in the US, the price of Adobe plans for individuals are listed below:

There’s a 40% off discount for “All Apps” subscriptions, and you can save over $20 every month if this is your go-to option. However, you may notice that other plans are even more expensive. If you’re interested in other plans, you will find that there’s no serious price drop when you select another country. Therefore, we don’t recommend you put so much effort into this.
