There are some things you’re just too old for. Apparently, Tinder is now one of them. Pack it up. Your golden years are behind you. According to Tinder’s new pricing model for Tinder Plus, they don’t want old balls scaring away all of the young hard bodies.
Price points for Tinder Plus have started to leak around the internet and if you’re over 30 years of age, you’re going to have to pay more for everyone’s favorite hookup app.
The “Rewind” feature is included in the premium tier of the service, Tinder Plus, which was unveiled today and costs anywhere between $9.99 and $19.99 in the United States, depending on the age of the user. That’s right. Tinder Plus costs $19.99 for users older than 30, while it costs just $9.99 for folks who are younger than 30.
However, in the TechCrunch office we’ve seen Tinder Plus offered at the price of $14.99/month for a 30+ female user. We’ve reached out to Tinder to get a clearer picture of the Tinder Plus pricing structure and will update as soon as we know more.
I can’t really blame Tinder for essentially “pricing out” older users. Tinder is most popular with 18-24 year olds. The last thing someone that age wants to see is someone who looks like their aunt. I mean, for Tinder and its superficial purposes, I can’t imagine its younger user base wants to see crow’s feet and dad bodies when they open up the app for a swipe sesh.
So, there you have it. If you’re older than 30, Tinder doesn’t want you unless you’re willing to pay for play. The app will still be free, but if you’re willing to buck up for Tinder Plus, you’ll get Rewind (the ability to undo swipes), Passport (the ability to match with anyone in the world) and the app will be 100% ad free.
