Cancel Tinder Gold

    Are you feeling ready to cancel your Tinder Gold subscription? Maybe you’re tired of using the app, you simply don’t want to pay for the app anymore, or you’ve finally found your person, so it’s time to delete the app. 

    No matter your reasoning for wanting to cancel your Tinder Gold subscription, have no fear. Canceling Tinder Gold is not difficult and can be done with a few easy steps. If you’re wondering how to cancel Tinder Gold, continue reading for everything you need to know to cancel your subscription as soon as possible and avoid any further fees.

    Before We Begin, What Exactly is Tinder Gold?

    Tinder Gold is one of Tinder’s tier subscription options that give users exclusive benefits that free users wish they had. Have you ever accidentally swiped left on someone when you meant to swipe right? If you don’t have one of Tinder’s paid plans, you’re out of luck in these situations. When you have a Tinder Gold subscription, though, you will be able to go back to the users you’ve accidentally swiped left on so you can swipe right and hopefully get that match you’re hoping for.

    To better understand how Tinder’s paid plans work, you should know that there are different options and price levels you can choose from. Tinder has three paid tiers that users can select based on the different levels of benefits and features they would like to have. The plus side of using one of Tinder’s paid subscriptions is that the free plans do not offer any of these exclusive features that are made to help you find your person easier and faster.

    Tinder’s three paid tiers include:

    • Tinder Plus

    • Tinder Gold

    • Tinder Platinum

    What Are the Differences Between the Tinder Tiers?

    Tinder Plus

    Tinder Plus is the most affordable plan you can choose from, and it offers the least amount of features. Nonetheless, Tinder Plus is an excellent option if you’re just getting started with Tinder and want more useful features from your account, such as unlimited likes.

    Listed below, you will find the multiple features that come with a Tinder Plus account:

    • Unlimited likes

    • Unlimited rewinds (for those instances when you accidentally swiped left instead of right)

    • Passport to any location (have the freedom to choose and like any location)

    • Hide advertisements

    Tinder Gold

    The second tier of Tinder and the most popular selection is Tinder Gold. Tinder Gold is usually the go-to for most paying Tinder users with its nifty features and middle price range. When you have a Tinder Gold account, you will get every feature offered in Tinder Plus and other additional features that make Tinder even more enjoyable to use.

    The different features offered with Tinder Gold include all the features previously listed plus:

    • 5 super likes a week

    • 1 free boost a month

    • See who likes you

    • New top picks every day

    Tinder Platinum

    Last and certainly not least is Tinder Platinum. Tinder Platinum is for true online dating professionals who are ready to find their person (or persons) as fast and efficiently as possible. This plan not only offers all of the features previously listed in the Tinder Plus and Tinder Gold plans, but this type of membership also lets users:

    • Prioritizes likes

    • Message before matching

    • See the likes you’ve sent in the past 7 days

    How To Subscribe to a Paid Tinder Membership

    Are you wondering how to subscribe to a paid Tinder membership? Are you not having much luck with Tinder’s free plan, and you’re thinking of giving up? Don’t give up just yet. The premium plans could help you find your person much easier and faster because of the unique features the free plan doesn’t offer, like unlimited likes or seeing who likes you.

    If you’re interested in having the cool and convenient features that come with premium Tinder plans, you can easily upgrade your account inside the app. To do this, all you need to do is open the Tinder app, tap your profile icon, click Settings, and then select ‘Get Tinder Plus, Gold, or Platinum. Here you will simply choose which type of upgrade you prefer and get going with your new cool features!

    Once you’ve tried Tinder’s premium plans and you’ve found your other half, you probably will want to cancel your Tinder Gold plan.

Keep in mind that simply deleting your Tinder app will NOT cancel your membership, and you will still be charged if you fail to cancel your membership correctly. Also, note that if you got your membership via Google or Apple, deleting your Tinder account will not free you from paying the subscription fees, so be sure to cancel your Tinder Gold subscription correctly to avoid continuous payments.

You will still have time to enjoy your premium features until your subscription officially runs out. 

    You might be wondering if your account will be deleted after canceling Tinder Gold. But that is not the case! Once your subscription is finished, you will still have free access to your account, and you will no longer be charged. Anytime you change your mind and want your fancy features back, you can always go back into the app and restart your Tinder Gold subscription.
