Online dating has become a real trend over the past decade, and with this, there is an emerging industry of dating apps. More and more people are using certain apps for simple hookup or even serious relationships.
But Tinder is not a part of this crowd of various dating apps, it is one of the oldest and leading app for dating. With a variety of free features, it has managed to retain its position from the competition.
But, Tinder also has a premium tier plans to help their users get the most from the app. Let’s see if it is worth the price.
The free version of the app provides plenty of features, but some of the interesting features are restricted and is only available for the gold members. So, if you were thinking about getting the gold membership, I suggest you read this article before buying anything.
Unlimited Swipes for Unlimited possibilities
The normal Tinder plan does not allow you to like every profile you see, this restriction is uplifted in the gold account. So, now you can swipe as much as you want. This should come in handy to a lot of people. If you are impatient or you just don’t have time, having the freedom to swipe freely is something worth considering. But if you limit your swipes only to some profiles and make sure to like a profile after working over the details then this feature doesn’t have much use for you.
More Super Likes
As a free member, you get 1 like per day. You can spend this like to show people that you specifically like them a lot. This can potentially increase your chances of matchmaking as the person would be interested in finding out the bio of the person who super liked them.
With Tinder Gold, you get a total of 5 super likes every day. So, that actually is five times more chance of getting matched. But super like doesn’t mean that the further conversations would be any different.
This is a nice addition to the plus membership. Once you tap the boost button, you will get more matches. But for getting more matches your profile must be visible.
Free tinder members are not shown on the top of the queue, which lessens their chances of getting matched but with a gold account, your profile will be enlisted at the top. Thus the boost feature can increase the chances of getting matched.
No Ads, No hassles
One of the things common in any free app is ads. There are tons of ads that spoils the whole experience and take more time. So instead of a swiping quest, you end up watching ads.
But, no need to worry, as with Tinder Gold you will get an Ad-free experience. So, now you can swipe without any interruptions.
Rewind your decisions
If you just keep swiping at all the profiles, then upgrading to a Gold account may come in handy. With the rewind feature, you get to go back and if you accidentally swiped on any profile.
However, you can only go back to one swipe. The feature is nice, but it would have been even better if you could rewind more swipes than just one.
Did they right-swiped you?
Normally you can’t check if the person has liked your profile or not. But tinder gold helps you to do that too. You can see the profiles of the persons who right swiped your profile and then you can like your pic from the lot.
If you are a frequent traveler and like to meet people along journeys, then this feature can be of use for you. Normally, when you create a tinder account, you only see the profiles from your area or county. However, with this feature, you can meet people from any part of the globe.
This feature allows you to change your location, perfect for frequent travelers and adventurers. You can meet new people and hopefully enjoy while visiting.
Now, let’s talk about pricing.
So, Tinder Gold for people under 30 years of has the following plans.
- 1 Month – $9.99
- 6 Months – $52.99
- 12 Months – $82.99
On the other side, the pricing for people over 30 years of age is
- 1 Month – $19.99
- 6 Months – $90.00
- 12 Months – $120.00
Since tinder has a quite large user base, your chances of meeting someone special are very good. And getting a gold membership really gives you a boost. But, it depends on you if you want to spend your money on the features or you are happy with the free account.
