What is Tinder Gold

Tinder gold is one of Tinder’s paid in app features. It’s an upgrade over Tinder plus.

It offers users unlimited swipes, top picks, extra super likes, and more.

What is the cost of Tinder Gold

Tinder has different costs of gold depending on your age & location. The price for me to join gold is the following

  • $30 for one month
  • $19 per month, if you agree to a 6-month membership
  • $12.5 per month, if you agree to a 1-year membership

To find out the amount for you to join, hit the gold button. Tinder will then show you a list of prices.

Cost of Upgrading from Plus to Gold

If you already are paying for Tinder Plus, all you need to do is pay the difference between the two different Services.

Can You Tell if Someone Has Tinder Gold?

Unless you hide your location or age, there is no way of telling if someone has Tinder Gold. Even if you do hide that information, most users won’t pick up that you are a paying member.

You can tell if someone has gold if they are more than 100 miles away. They are using the passport feature.

Tinder Plus Vs Gold

Tinder Plus is cheaper than Gold & has most of the same features.

The big difference is with Gold, you can see who liked you along with choosing (or purchasing) top picks.

Benefits of Using Tinder Gold

Unlimited swipes

You won’t have a swipe limit. Often free users run out of swipes and have to wait 12 hours again to use tinder. This isn’t the case if you have gold.

Passport function 

With the passport function, you can set your location wherever you want. This is great if you are traveling to a new city. Set up some dates before you travel.

Smart photos

Tinder will optimize your profile by split testing. It will arrange the photos by best to worst.

1 Tinder Boost per month

Each month you will be given 1 free boost to use.

5 Superlikes per day

Instead of 1 superlike per day, you get to use 5.


Rewind allows you to undo your last swipe

Manage who sees you 

You can use this setting to only show your profile to people you liked or active members.

Limited visibility 

You can hide your age and distance on your profile.

No ads

You will not see ads when swiping.

See who likes you

This is the best part. You can see all the profiles who liked you, and swipe right on them. This is great if you have over 99 likes in your stack.

Top picks

You can swipe right on the top 10 picks of the day. If you want tinder to show you more profiles, you can pay for them starting at $3 for 10 more picks.

So is it worth it?

In my opinion, if you travel or have a lot of likes, yes it’s worth it. If you are struggling to get likes, matches, or land dates, tinder gold isn’t for you.

You are better off hiring a dating coach, getting a course, or reading some material to improve yourself.
