Bumble Spotlight or Tinder Boost: Which is better?

ROAST, get more matches

Spotlight is basically Bumble's version of Tinder Boost. They will both prioritize your profile for half an hour on the respective dating apps.

When it comes to comparing the results, Bumble Spotlight is better. The reason is that Tinder has more people registered. Hence, even after using the standard Boost feature, there are fewer chances of getting matches.

Tinder has introduced a new feature called Super Boost to overcome this issue. Instead of 10x, Tinder Super Boost gives you 100x more visibility for three hours. But you also have to pay more for it.

Get your jargon in place! I get lost a lot myself. I guess they do it on purpose, but they do not refer at all to the same thing.

While the Boost is common in the names, these premium packages of the respective dating apps offer different features. Bumble Boost is a premium package similar to Tinder Plus.

Bumble Boost gives access to several premium features like Unlimited Filters, Bumble Extend, Unlimited swipes, etc. Tinder Boost, on the other hand, is like Bumble's Spotlight. It simply promotes your profile on the stack for 30 minutes.

After knowing so much about Spotlight, the question that arises now is that is "Bumble Spotlight worth it?" Well, here's the Bumble Spotlight review. It is one of the best premium features on this dating app.

It boosts your profile for a specific time to enhance the chances of matches at a fraction of a cost compared to Tinder. But it's not all pros. Bumble Spotlight does have some loopholes.

As you don't have to buy Spotlight through Bumble Coins anymore, the price for each Spotlight has also been reduced significantly.

The first negative point about Spotlight is that if you stay in a rural area, the chances of matches will reduce. The next thing is that it does not give you access to additional swipes. Hence, before activating Spotlight, ensure you have enough swipes left for the day.
