Tinder is a dating app, probably the most well-known in the online dating world. It's available in more than 190 countries. It has been downloaded over 20 billion times. Tinder Plus, Gold and Platinum are three different subscription options for the app.
They offer features such as unlimited likes, priority matching, one free Boost per month and much more.
Which one should you get?

Well, it was! I am an old user enough to have enjoyed the time when there was no subscription and little competition on the app. You could get results easily!
It is actually the same with many apps nowadays. Bumble has Bumble Premium. I tell you all about it in this article. And Hinge has its plan as well.
Those times are over. But guess what, with changes always comes great things!
Now Tinder is a freemium model. The company was actually saved by those paying plans it had to set up! Tinder incentivizes you to pay with several mechanics:
If you are investing some time and effort into getting girls from Tinder, it may be a good thing to consider paying a subscription.
That brings us here: among the three subscriptions, plus, gold and platinum, which one is best for me? What is the best value for money?
Have you ever wondered why Dating apps are working for your friends but not you?
It's hard to know what makes a dating profile attractive, and even harder to know which pictures are good or not.
With our AI-trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls and dating experts, we can help you to choose your best pics and stand out.
Make your dating profile more attractive in just 2 minutes.
Tinder plus starts at around 9.99$ a month, down to 4$ if you subscribe for a year.
The pricing depends on your location in the world... and your age! It jumps to 19.99$ a month if you are above 30 years old. Clearly the cheapest subscription there is!
On the other hand, Tinder Gold starts at around 14.99$ a month, bumped to 29.99$ if you are above the 30yo limit.
An advantage to Tinder Plus there!
Tinder Plus already unlocks most of the features as mentioned before. You get those crazy super likes and the monthly boost.
Tinder Gold just brings the banger: you are now able to see through your deck of dating profiles, to see in advance which girl has liked you. You can select your potential match without having to swipe endlessly.
Super efficient when you combine this with boosts to get some matches quickly if you travel for instance!
You also get the tailored top picks list as a Gold member. Tinder acts as your own dating concierge, pushing your profiles you are very likely to like!
Don't get ahead of yourself though. There are cases when those perks are quite useless.
First off, if you are just kinda serious with Tinder and not an avid user, chances are you will not leverage the full potential of the features!
More important: if you live in a not-so-crowded area, you will discover your likes soon enough! No need to cheat and reveal the deck!
Having a good Tinder Profile and Tinder plus can be a good combo there.
Small aside. Did you know it is possible to make your profile more attractive in 2 minutes and get more matches every day?
Thanks to our Artificial Intelligence trained on 10,000+ pictures rated by hot girls, you will be able to access personalized feedback and tips to boost your dating profile for good.
You will know exactly which pictures are good or not, and most importantly why.
So, what are you waiting for to take charge of your dating life?
Tinder Platinum starts at around 19.99$ a month and reaches a cute 39.99$ if you are above 30. That begins to be noticeable!
The classic Tinder increase.
We talked about them earlier, you are paying three major things. See who you liked: I very rarely use that.
Send a message with your super like a killer to me. I notice quite a big match rate discrepancy depending on whether I send a line or not.
Warning: if you are not confident in your texting skills, it may not be the best thing to use that. Better read my article about Tinder's openers at least to avoid falling flat.
Message before match is a great feature if you did your homework!
The priority likes: This one is unclear. Your likes are said to get a small boost in the girl's swiping decks. Difficult to quantify!
However, as I wrote many times, if you have a solid profile, the thing you want to buy is precisely exposure! Having my likes boosted actually had a big impact on me. Some friends starting from the free plan got up to 10x matches a week thanks to that.
We love those priority likes!
Let's summarize quickly the idea there. I have no one-size-fits-all answer for such a problem.
It depends mainly on your goal, objectives, and resources in your life at that moment.
You need to answer those questions yourself.
I'll still draw some portraits you can refer to, that may help!
You have no likes or almost, in the free version. I have written it over and over again, paying is just a BOOST. It won't changed your situation if you have no results at all.
It is way better to start building a STRONG profile that gets results rather than focusing on paying to get your profile more exposed.
If you have no money at all, you need to figure out what is important for you. Maybe you need to do some cuts here and there.
If you have already results, it may be a good thing to at least jump to Tinder Plus to get super likes and an occasional boost.
That is super-efficient.
If you have some money but live in a rural place, the strategy is clear: invest in building the strongest profile possible.
Also, invest time, and maybe money sharpening your tools about texting! You won't get thousands of tries.
You just need Tinder Plus there in my opinion. You could spend the extra money to really shine.
If Tinder and dating is your focus, then my go to subscription is clearly Tinder Platinum.
I talk about that in my latest article about Tinder's algorithm. It is best to do everything to get a high rating inside Tinder's algorithm.
Buying the latest subscription is clearly one of those steps!
You will get some advance on (some of) your competition and will be all set to kill it
