As you may know, there’s a new official Tinder Premium Subscription called Tinder Platinum.
Matching with people on Tinder is all about the timing. And that’s something we can control.
If you have hundreds of people swiping through your profile, you have a higher chance to get more matches if you send a lot of messages.
With Tinder Platinum, you can have those high-matching potential matches read and reply to your messages first.

Let’s start with:
1. What is Tinder Platinum?
Tinder Platinum is the newest Premium Subscription on Tinder. It gives you every feature (including the features of Tinder Plus, Tinder Gold) and two other features: Message Before Like, Priority Likes + Likes You Sent Last 7 Days. Each of them helps you get more matches.
If you use Tinder you might be familiar with the Tinder Premium Features.
To understand this better, let’s say you start from zero (free Tinder) step by step to Tinder Platinum. Here’s what you’ll get:
The first one and the cheapest of the Premium Subscriptions is:
1.1 Tinder Plus
Includes 6 features:
- Unlimited Likes
- 5 Super Likes a day
- 1 Boost a month
- No ads
1.2 Tinder Gold
Includes all the Tinder Plus features + 2 others:
- Likes You
- Top Picks
1.3 Tinder Platinum
Has all the features of Plus, Gold, and:
- Message Before Match
- Priority Likes
- The Likes You Sent Last 7 Days
Let’s go further ahead and see:
2. What Does Tinder Platinum Do?
|Message Before Match|
The Likes You’ve Sent Last 7 Days
5 Super Likes a day
1 Boost a month
As mentioned above, it gives you all the premium features available.
I’ll show you in detail about the use of each of these features, and what they do:
2.1 Message Before Match
Message before match is a tool that gives you the opportunity to text someone when you give them a SuperLike.
This can be a good chance for you if you want to go one step further ahead to make a good first impression.
- You will be able to write a message that can be up to 140 characters and send it to your Super-Like person.
At times Super Likes seem like they’re accidental. Attaching a message to the SuperLike is obviously more convincing.
I mean 140 characters are more than enough. You can use it wisely to grab the attention you want, and have the person swipe right for you. Congratulate yourself for your new big achievement, won’t you?
- You get to message before match only to your Super Likes. In which case with Platinum you get 5 of them per day.
There are some people that you just can’t sit and wait for them to like you too in order to get your chance to text them.
So of course, you Super Like them, then hit them with your good line!
5 Per day is just enough if you do it right.
Tip: Get creative when sending them a message. I bet that they’ve got plenty of boring messages they’ve ignored already. Use a nice funny, interesting line, if you want to get the match.
2.2 Priority Likes
Priority Likes makes sure that you will be seen by your Likes and Super-Likes before the non-subscribers.
Meaning, you will be leading their swipe stack.
You see, the good thing about this is that it shows you first to people you’re already interested in.
At some point, people get tired of swiping. With Priority Likes you show up first while they have the energy to do the swiping process.
If you’ve got a nice, strong profile, this will be your other chance to get those matches. Hurray!!
Tip: Check your profile and ask yourself whether your pictures and description intrigues you.
If the answer is no, you might want to start working on improving on that part. Otherwise Priority Likes will not be much help to get you those matches.
2.3 The Likes You’ve Sent Last 7 Days
- Obviously, you will be able to see the likes you’ve sent last week.
What is this good for?
Well, let’s say you ran out of your SuperLikes. And there’s someone that you really liked, but couldn’t give them your sign.
With free Tinder, Plus, or Gold. You won’t get to see them again if they swipe you left.
But, with Platinum, you can find them once more, SuperLike them, and send them a message before the match.
2.4 Likes You
- This feature allows you to see the people who already swiped right for you.
It allows you to see their profiles, and decide whether you want to NOPE them or LIKE them. You can do that by dragging their profile card to the left or right (you know the rules already!).
2.5 Top Picks
Taken from Tinder, here:
“While all users receive one free Top Pick a day, Tinder Gold and Platinum subscribers will be shown their set of Top Picks on a daily basis — and believe us, we know how to pick ‘em!”
In other words, Tinder will show you people that you prefer more to be shown to you. This according to your swipes.
- You’ve got 24 hours to swipe to your current TopPicks, after 24 hours it’ll refresh, showing you new profiles.
- You can purchase more if you want more to show, but in order to do so you have to be a member of Tinder Gold or Tinder Platinum.
- Also, after purchasing them you’ll still have 24 hours to view them.
- Also, after purchasing them you’ll still have 24 hours to view them.
- There’s the option to see TopPicks from around the world. For that you’ll have to use the Passport feature.
2.6 Unlimited Likes
As you may know, there’s a limited number of likes you can give on Tinder.
Having this feature on Tinder Platinum, and Gold, you will be able to spend hours swiping right as much as you wish. Unlimited. Yes.
2.7 Unlimited Rewind
We’re talking about the yellow arrow icon.
Finally we can undo what we’ve done, at least at one point in life. I know, right?
With this tool, you will be able to undo what you’ve just done. With no limit!
You accidentally Liked, Super Liked, or (god forbid) Noped someone you shouldn’t, this tool will allow you to undo that.
2.8 5 Super Likes a Day
Here you have another chance to have attention from someone you wish.
You click the blue star icon. And it will add a blue border to your profile letting the person you SuperLiked know about it.
They’ll know for sure that you swiped right on them (better than that, you SuperLiked them).
You’ll have their attention, and they’ll know for sure that you’ll match right away once they swipe right.
2.9 1 Boost a Month
This is that purple lighting bolt. You click it, you’ve got a boost.
What does it do?
It makes you one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes.
You get 1 boost a month. You want to use it wisely, and get them matches!
You won’t need to pack your bags to go around the world, at least not on Tinder.
Passport gives you the opportunity to choose any location you want, swipe people’s profiles from that area, and also get your profile shown to that area.
Once you change the location the people from the previous one will only see your profile for 24 hours.
2.11 No Ads
You’re an Ad hater?
This is perfect for you. This feature lets you turn them off and they’ll simply not show again on your swiping process. Hurray!
3. How Much Does Tinder Platinum Cost?
There is no official price yet, but it apparently depends on the country you live in.
So the price varies:
|Tinder Platinum Cost|
|12 months||6 months||1 month|
|Tinder Platinum Cost|
|12 months||6 months||1 month|
Germany Tinder Platinum Price:
Denmark Tinder Platinum Price:
Since there is no official price yet, you will have to either wait for the official price to be announced, or check it out while you upgrade to Platinum on your account.
4. How to upgrade to Platinum on Tinder?
According to Tinder’s official website, if you wish to have Tinder Platinum it will only be available to you if you already have Tinder Plus, or Gold. (At least for now)
In other words, Tinder Platinum is more of an upgrade if you already have one of the other features.
- Does that mean that if I want to get Tinder Platinum, I’ll have to get Plus or Gold first?
That, for the moment, depends on the country you live in.
Next question is:
5. What countries is Tinder Platinum available in?
Tinder Platinum seems to be available in the U.S (most places there), Europe (places like: Germany, France, Denmark, Netherlands, etc), India, and others.
There are countries not mentioned since there is no official information on this.
However even if Platinum is available in your state/city it still might not show up.
But there is a way that seems to be working for some people (even if it isn’t available in their countries yet).
5.1 How to make Tinder Platinum show up?
Some users found out about Tinder Platinum quite a while ago through a certain method:
- Opening an incognito tab on Chrome.
- Next, tinder.com.
- Denying the location to the website.
- Creating a new account. (Be careful with your number, and pictures, otherwise get shadowbanned!)
- Going to your profile.
- Finding the Tinder Platinum above Tinder Gold.
That’s it. This is how it showed up on their Tinder accounts.
If you’d like to have this feature but for some reason is not showing up, you might want to try out the steps above that seem to have been working for others.
Remember: You want to keep denying the location since that is the reason why Platinum doesn’t show up on your app (it’s not available in your state yet).
6. Is Tinder Platinum Worth Upgrading?
We’ve seen what Platinum does, costs, where it is available, and how to use it.
And finally, you’ve come to the question you should ask yourself before you decide whether to get it or not:
Is it worth it?
The answer to this question is Yes and No.
If you already are somewhat successful on Tinder, then this is worth trying.
Priority Likes, Message Before Match, would be quite ideal for you.
With Priority Likes you’ll be on top of the swipe stack and more people will be noticing your charming profile.
Therefore you get more people to swipe right on you. You, irresistible!
With Message Before Match you’ll use your genius brain to impress people you’re interested in.
You can do that by using the 140 characters to write something mindblowing in order to grab their attention, thus giving the impression you’d like to give.
Most importantly, getting those matches!!
To put it simply:
You have a strong/attractive profile and you get matches but you want more?
Tinder Platinum will give you the tools you need to get those more matches. Eventually, those dates.
If you don’t have good texting skills, or an attractive profile on Tinder, then this is not for you. It is not worth upgrading to Platinum.
You will end up spending money on something that cannot do the work for you.
If you have an unattractive profile on Tinder, using Tinder Platinum’s feature Priority Likes, your unattractive profile will be shown to people so that they can swipe left.
An unattractive profile on Tinder means a profile that doesn’t intrigue you to explore further.
You can be hella good looking, but if you don’t keep your profile good looking too, you’ll end up with an unattractive profile on Tinder. In this case Tinder Platinum wouldn’t be able to solve your little ‘problem’.
Or if you have a good profile, but your texting is awful that it makes your matches ghost you.
Another little ‘problem’ shows up: You will get matches, but you won’t get dates.
It would only be a waste of time and money.
If that somehow is the case, again, this is not for you.
Tinder Platinum will not solve your little ‘problems’.
Note: It doesn’t mean that you don’t have an attractive personality or don’t know how to communicate. It means that you might be doing a few things wrong with this certain app: Tinder. Which is completely normal.

Platinum gives you the tools in order for you to use them, increase the chances for matches, and eventually: dates.
You use those tools correctly, you get matches/dates.
You don’t use the tools and wait for the job to get done itself, well, you get Niente: No matches, no dates. Period.
