It’s the turn for Tinder Platinum to be under the expert microscope so you can know everything about it without spending a penny.
Last time I presented you the full review of Tinder Gold with every feature you’ll get in exchange for your money, plus some useful tips and encouragement to try it when you have a good profile. We will do something like that.
At the end of this review, you shall be able to decide if Tinder Platinum it’s worth your money and time or if you are better without it. Plus, a quick tip to save over 30% on your membership if you want to get it.
If you want to skip directly into something, here’s what we’ll be covering:
What is Tinder Platinum?
Tinder Platinum is the most recent and highest tier among the Tinder subscriptions, which include Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold.
It was first launched at the end of 2020, and it’s still spreading around the globe. So perhaps it’s still not available in your country and there is a slight chance that some features work differently as Tinder establishes Platinum worldwide.
In case you live in one of those places where it’s still unavailable, don’t worry, we have a trick that can help you get your hands on it anyway. Just keep reading.
How to get Tinder Platinum
From the app, tap on the Profile icon, then go to Settings and tap on the upper banner that says “Get Tinder Platinum”.
From the online site, go to My Profile, and then click on the upper banner that says “Get Tinder Platinum”.
Because this subscription level is still developing, getting Tinder Platinum is only an option for Tinder users that already have a membership. It doesn’t matter if it’s Plus or Gold.
One thing to consider if you are upgrading is that Tinder will take your current membership duration at the moment of purchasing Platinum.
So if for example, you had a 12-month subscription to Tinder Gold, your upgrade to Tinder Platinum will be for 12 months as well.
Important: The time it takes for the upgrade in your subscription to be available will vary depending on the device you use.
Changes will be seen in 24 hours or less.
Charges will be made immediately and there will be a refund for the remaining time on the Tinder Plus membership.
Changes will be seen in 24 hours or less. Charges will be made immediately and there will be a refund for the remaining time on the Tinder Plus membership.
Changes will be made immediately. You will only have to pay for the difference between tier prices and the original renewal date will be preserved. This means that if you joined Tinder Plus in November, and you upgrade in March. Your time will keep counting from November.
Online (through browser)
Works very much like upgrading from iOS. Changes will occur within 24 hours or less, charges will be made immediately and there will be a refund for the remaining time in the previous subscription. Although this refund might take time to appear.
If Tinder Platinum doesn’t appear as available due to your location, you can set a new profile using an Incognito window on Firefox or Chrome.
Make sure the important data such as contact information, phone number, and Facebook account are not the same. Also, deny the browser access to your location.
This will help “cheat” Tinder so you can get a subscription to Tinder Platinum without moving to another country.
How much does Tinder Platinum cost?
Like every other purchase on Tinder, prices vary according to a different number of reasons. Especially for Tinder Platinum, three factors determine the price: age, location, and the fact that is still under upgrades and final tweaks.
The age is important at the time of purchasing subscriptions on Tinder because they have two different pricing schemes: a cheaper one for users below 30 years, and a more expensive one for people over that age.
Location plays a crucial part in the cost because Tinder tries to have a similar price that is fair for everyone, which gives some wild variations from country to country, but also from state to state in some cases.
Here is an average to give you an idea of what to expect:
Price under 30 years old:
Monthly cost (USD)
Total cost (USD)
Price over 30 years old:
Monthly cost (USD)
Total cost (USD)
Is there a way to get Tinder Platinum for free?
But you can get a discount of up to 30% off on your membership as well as on any other purchases you do inside of Tinder, and it’s fairly easy to get it.
The only thing you need to do is buy through tinder.com on a computer. Yep, that’s all. Forget about purchasing through the app and you will see how prices drop almost like by work of magic.
Tinder Platinum features
Because Tinder Platinum is the top subscription that you can find on Tinder, it gathers every benefit available for users of Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold.
Plus, two more perks that we will see right away.
Message before match
If you have used Hinge, this one can sound familiar.
Message before match allows Tinder Platinum subscribers to attach a message along with every Super Like sent. But it has some downsides if it’s not used properly.
Pro tip: If you’re still grinding your way to becoming a good texter or if openers are a headache for you, and yet you want to enjoy this advantage, remember that you can outsource your dating accounts to Hovalo, and we will make this for you.
To attach a message, at the moment of tapping the blue star (or pressing Enter if you are on a browser), the option will pop up.
From there, you can decide between texting something or sending a normal Super Like.
It’s totally up to you to take advantage of the feature or waiting for the perfect moment to use it.
When this feature is enabled, every Like and Super Like that you sent will be put before the ones of normal users.
This will increase your possibilities of making a match, especially with girls located in large cities.
Is no surprise that women tend to accumulate way more matches than men. Imagine a possible match going through an average of 200 likes per day or more.
It’s highly unlikely that she will see all of them, and more probable that she swipes through the first 20 or so.
Priority Likes will take you to the beginning of the line.
If you also happen to have good pictures and your location is close to hers, the possibility of a match will be almost secured.
See last Likes sent
This is the last advantage added until now to Tinder Platinum.
It allows you to see again every profile you’ve liked during the past 7 days.
Maybe you don’t like them anymore or you want to drool for a while. Either way, with this tool you can finally see your history of Likes. At least the ones from the past week.
Now that we tackled the features that set Tinder Platinum apart from the other two subscriptions, it’s time to run through features shared with Gold.
Hovalo Tip: If you want to see this in detail, you can jump to our Tinder Gold review for a wider analysis of each feature.
Every Tinder user receives one every day.
It’s a profile selected just for you because it has a high chance to be what you’re looking for. As Tinder calls it “your most swipe-worthy potential matches”.
In other words, it’s a profile that aligns very well with your previous Likes and Super Likes sent.
As a Tinder Platinum or Tinder Gold user, you will get a larger selection of profiles to see. And if you want even more than the ones presented, you can always purchase Top Picks as long as you have a valid membership.
Just remember that the Top Picks change every 24 hours, so if you like someone, swipe right before they’re gone.
See who Likes you
This is probably one of my personal favorites. It’s a huge time saver.
No more trying to guess who has swiped you to the right. With this feature, you will be able to scroll through every profile, open them and make matches right away.
If you have a good profile and/or if you recently used a Tinder Boost, this will help you avoid swiping endlessly hoping to get a match.
After a match is made this way, you will see a gold or black heart below the profile picture.
Now, let’s go quickly through the features shared between the three tiers of Tinder:
Swipe all the profiles you like until there is nothing more left, or your eyes pop out.
The days of running out of likes are gone the moment you pay for a membership.
If you swiped someone the wrong way by accident, the yellow undo arrow will be your savior.
The catch with this is that even though you have unlimited Rewinds, you can only go back with your last action.
Remember the “Message before Match”? Well, it goes along with this. If you feel like 5 Super Likes are not enough, you can always buy more.
Once a month, you will have the chance to put your profile at the top for 30 minutes. This can make you get up to 10 times more matches. Like the Super Likes, you can buy more whenever you want.
If you don’t use the Boosts, they will accumulate on your profile until you want them, and you can activate them when you see fit. No need to rush.
If you want to know more about this feature, you can jump into our article on Tinder Boosts.
Whether you want to go international from your couch or you want to have new dates with every travel you make, this option will allow you to change your location and make matches where you decide.
The least that any membership should provide is letting you get rid of the ads, and Tinder subscription tiers are no exception. Make the expense worth it and hide every ad once and for all.
Is Tinder Platinum worth it?
After looking at all the features shared, the price, and the features that make the highest tier stand out, it’s more than fair to be asking if Tinder Platinum is worth the expense.
The short answer is yes, BUT…
It’s only yes when you have a good profile and have above-average skills for texting.
Why? Because taking advantage of the Platinum features depends solely on these two factors.
When you have a poor profile, being at the top will only ensure a faster swipe to the left. And if you don’t know how to come up with good openers, that Super Like will most likely go to waste unless you have the looks of a supermodel.
Hovalo Tip: To make your money worth the expense of Tinder Platinum, schedule a call so you can receive a personal assessment to make your profile stand out from the rest.
If your main concern for joining Tinder Platinum is the price, keep reading.
Tinder Platinum vs Tinder Gold vs Tinder Plus
To make things easier, let’s suppose you already have an outstanding profile that has a good number of likes coming your way and that you know how to charm matches with your texting skills. (Or perhaps you are outsourcing your profiles to Hovalo and this is no longer a concern for you)
Which tier is better will depend mostly on what you want to get from Tinder. Here’s is a summary for you to decide:
Go for Tinder Platinum if:
Go for Tinder Gold if:
Go for Tinder Plus if:
Want to make better matches faster.
Don’t want to waste time swiping, but don’t mind sorting profiles either.
Don’t mind swiping.
Want to skip straight to the flirt.
Are super curious to know who likes you or want to play safer.
You’re here to flirt, not watching ads.
Have enough money to afford these advantages.
Want to find compatible matches faster.
Aren’t in a rush to find dates right away.
Can I cancel Tinder Platinum?
You are free to cancel your subscription or stop the automatic renewal at any given moment. The only three things you have to take in mind before giving up on your subscription are:
- You will keep your tier until the expiration date arrives.
- There are no refunds.
- Uninstalling the app won’t stop the automatic payments nor cancel the subscription.
The truth about Tinder Platinum
After an extensive overview of features, prices, and explanations regarding Tinder Platinum, is time to give a verdict.
Indeed, the perks that distinguish Platinum from its older brothers are awesome and will certainly make a difference when they are used properly.
In this case, and especially if you are under 30, Tinder Platinum is definitely worth a shot if you are sure about your profile and skills.
But let’s be honest: if you have a good profile and amazing texting skills, you don’t need it.
A common favorite of Tinder users is Tinder Gold since it has the See Who Likes You feature, which is one of the best, because of the time-saving. And I couldn’t agree more.
But in the end, you have the last decision.
In case that after all this you still have questions or you want to know if Tinder Platinum is worth it especially for you, leave a comment below or schedule a call to run through your case and make you step into the online dating game the best way.
