We’ve all been there: You’re under the covers, scrolling through Tinder way past your bedtime. You’re on a left-swipe roll and accidentally pass on someone you would’ve swiped right on so hard your thumb would break.
The only way to Rewind — reverse your last swipe — is to pay for Tinder, so why don’t you go ahead and just drop some dollars a month to pay for a ? This will set you back $14.99 for one month, though the per-month cost decreases the longer you subscribe: $7.50 per month for six months ($49.99 total) or $5.00 per month for 12 months ($59.99 total).
If, when you get the next month’s charge, you regret this decision, you’ll need to cancel Tinder Gold. Here’s how to do it.
What is Tinder Gold in the first place?
Tinder Gold is one of the dating app’s tier subscription options. Maybe they call it gold because it’s the Goldilocks of plans, having more perks (and costing more) than Tinder Plus, but fewer perks and a smaller price tag than Tinder Platinum.
Tinder Gold, unlike Tinder Plus, also has , where the app serves you your “most swipe-worthy matches.” You’ll get one free a month, which makes you a top profile in your area for 30 minutes, and free Super Likes, which let the user know you Liked them before they Like you back.
How to cancel Tinder Gold
How you depends on how you subscribed. Deleting the app on your phone won’t cancel the subscription, and if you purchased it through the Apple or Google Play Store, deleting your Tinder account itself won’t cancel it either.
If you bought Tinder Gold on your iPhone, open your Settings and tap on your name. Then tap subscriptions, select your Tinder one, and press Cancel Subscription.
For Android, there are two options. If you purchased through the Google Play Store, go there on your Android. Tap the Menu icon and go to Subscriptions. Select the Tinder subscription, and choose Cancel Subscription.
If you used the direct credit card option on Android, open Tinder on your device. Go to your profile, tap Manage Payment Account, then Cancel Subscription.
Finally, if you bought Tinder Gold through Tinder’s browser application, go to the site. Tap the profile icon, go to Manage Account, then click Cancel or disable Auto Renew. Deleting your Tinder account on the browser site also automatically cancels the subscription if you bought it there.
What happens when I delete Tinder Gold?
You’ll still have access to the paid features until the subscription runs out. Tinder doesn’t prorate fees based on cancellation date, nor do they retroactively refund previous payments.
Canceling your paid subscription doesn’t delete your Tinder account, so you can still use it for free. Should you want the extras again, you can always start a new subscription. Until then, enjoy your regret-free swipes.
