Bumble is one of the most popular dating apps out there. And he can attribute a lot of that success to its free download and use.

But while you can use Bumble for years without paying a dime, if you want to become a power user of Bumble, you may want to consider a subscription. Bumble offers two different subscription plans – Boost and Premium – as well as Spotlight and SuperSwipe, two features that you can purchase separately.

Here’s everything you need to know about Bumble’s paid plans and how they can spice up the life of your dating app.

Bumble is free, but lets you pay for extras

When you download and sign up for Bumble, you don’t need to provide credit card information or billing addresses. You can use the basic functionalities of the application (scan, correspondence, chat) for free.

But paying money can give your profile an edge over the competition. Head to your profile and you will see options to purchase a Spotlight or a SuperSwipe.

Spotlights, which cost between $ 6.99 for one or $ 54.99 for a 30 pack, are boosts that make your profile appear on the profiles of more users for half an hour. Bumble claims they can get you “up to 10 times more matches” than just scanning normally.

Meanwhile, SuperSwipes are like Tinder’s Super Likes – when you give someone a SuperSwipe, it puts you at the forefront of their feed and shows that you’re genuinely interested. SuperSwipes cost between $ 3.50 for two and $ 45.99 for a 30 pack.
