Is Tinder Platinum worth it? I tried it for 3 months to find out

Say you’re in bed swiping on Tinder, as one does, and then you see a pop-up: Upgrade to Tinder Platinum, it says. Message Before Matching! Priority Likes!

Longtime users are likely aware of these in-app Tinder ads, as several features – such as “rewinding” your last swipe – are only available if you pay up.

The dating app rolled out Tinder Platinum in 2020, and at $ per month it’s the most expensive subscription level they offer. Some tools, like being able to message someone before you match, were never available prior.

But is Tinder Platinum (opens in a new tab) worth it? The app gave me a three-month trial run to find out. Platinum’s varied features, elimination of ads, and exclusive perks (like seeing who I already liked) changed how I used the app – but didn’t change much when it came to finding matches.

What is Tinder Platinum, and how’s it different from Tinder’s other subscription levels?

From least to most expensive, here are Tinder’s paid subscriptions: Tinder Plus (opens in a new tab) , Gold (opens in a new tab) , and Platinum (opens in a new tab) .

One month of Plus is $4.99 and Gold is $, according to prices listed in the app. Each of these vary slightly depending on the timeframe of your subscription – if you sign up for a longer period, the prices per month drop slightly – but this exemplifies the differences.

It’s also worth noting, too, that Tinder has modified its paid features in recent months. For example, free users used to get one Super Like – a blue star that indicates you like someone before you match – a day.

Tinder Plus no longer includes Super Likes or a monthly Boost (which “boosts” your profile to the top of others card stack). Tinder Gold and Platinum now include five Super Likes a week as opposed to per day.
