What is Tinder Boost & How does it work?

A Tinder boost makes your account one of the top profiles in the area for 30 minutes.

This means that when you activate a Tinder boost, your profile will be seen and swiped up to ten times more, increasing your chances of getting matches.

Imagine that swiping on Tinder is like a stack of cards. Each card is a profile of a person. If you live in a densely populated city there are thousands of cards in this stack. Chances are that your future match will have swipe through tons of profiles before she gets to see your profile.

Boost places your card near the top of this deck. It won’t make your profile better than it is, but now so many people will see your profile that you’ll probably get a lot more matches than usual.

What’s the price? And where to get Tinder Boost.

There are two ways to get your hands on boosts.

  • Get one free boost included in your Tinder Plus or Gold subscription.
  • Buy them separately (no Tinder Plus or Gold needed).

The exact price is a bit tricky because Tinder charges everyone differently.

Depending on where you live and how old you are, Boosts get cheaper or more expensive.

Tinder Boost prices seem to go up as time go by.

Look at this screenshot from my very own phone in 2018:

Now compare that to this screenshot from my very own phone in 2019:

During the first screenshot I was 30.

In the second I was 31.

Both times I was at the same location.

In 2018 one boost cost me 4.38 euro. If I bought ten at once, the price went down to 2.69 each.

In 2019 one boost cost me 6.49 euro. If I bought ten at once, the price went down to 4.39 each.

So the maximum discount price in 2019, is the STANDARD price of 2018.


Almost a 50% price increase regardless of my age.

When I asked a group of TextGod followers and clients for their prices, it was clear that they vary a lot.

Especially the younger guys seem to be paying a lot less.

Holy Tip:

Making a profile with a lower age reduces costs for all Tinder purchases. That means cheaper Plus, Gold, Boosts, Top Picks, etc.

Just don’t tell Tinder that you got this from me.

It’s probably bannable. And getting unbanned is nearly impossible. Setting up a new account becomes more and more difficult.

If you’ve decided to use a boost, then you better use it at the best time possible.

You want the most bang for your buck, right?

The best time to use Tinder Boost

The only way to know the best Boost time is by looking at tons of data.

Research by Nielsen showed us when most users are on Tinder and other apps.

As you can see on the graph below, there’s a steady increase in activity between 6 pm and 9 pm.

With a clear peak at 9pm.

From 9 pm until 12 pm there’s still good activity but it goes down steadily.

The best day to use a boost could be Sunday. Or Monday

According to the yearly report by Bumble, Sunday is the busiest day. Other apps like Hinge said the same.

But Tinder said in its 2018 report that Monday between 6 pm and 9 pm sees most activity.

Bang bang!

Holy Tip:

Bad weather? Stuck inside?


Rain, wind, snow, or even storm can increase Tinder activity by up to 10%.

Sounds like a great time to use a boost!

In 2017 when storms Niko and Stella were active, we saw even more than 10% increase in Tinder activity.


That’s all you need to know about timing, or is it?

Let’s look at the other tricks to get the most out of your Tinder Boost!

3 Hacks to get better Boost results

A boost is never free.

So why not get the most out of it?

Here are 3 quick tips that save you some frustration when boosting.

1. Don’t use Boost when you arrive at a new location

Boost puts you on top of the swiping stack.

But when you just got to a new city, Tinder automatically gives you a small boost.

It would be a shame to spend your dollaroos when you’re already being boosted, right?

So wait a bit.

Let the new location boost work its magic for you first.

If you notice not much is happening or it’s slowing down again…

…THEN you can boost.

2. Don’t use Boost if you’re busy

There’s not much use in boosting if you can’t instantly text your fresh matches.

3 reasons:

  • When a match is brand new, people are their excitement peak. Use it!
  • When you text new matches, Tinder is happy. It’s good for the hidden score your profile gets.
  • Texting your matches later doesn’t work well. To prove my point, look at the below screenshot.

These are 4 old matches I texted 2 weeks ago.

None of them responded during those 2 weeks.

Even though 2 of them Superliked me.

How can so much interest turn into zero responses?

Because I matched them way back. Varying from 2 months to 5 months.

Since they probably can’t remember swiping me all their excitement about getting to know me is gone.

You could also argue that my opener is whack.

And I could argue back that it gets a response 7 out of 10 times on a perfected profile.

(It’s one of the openers I tested for an experiment I’ll share with you in the future. Check out this article if you’re struggling with starting a Tinder conversation)

3. Don’t use a Tinder Boost if your profile sucks

Call me direct or even rude…

…but your boost won’t do anything if your profile sucks.

If only 1% of girls that see your profile swipe you right…

…then being on top of the swipe stack for 30 minutes will result in only one thing…

You being disappointed and frustrated.

Give it a try before flushing your money.

“Help! I’m still getting few to no matches with my boost!”

Even though Boost brings you to the top of the swipe stack of all the women in your area, that doesn’t mean that you’ll get more matches.

After all, a polished turd is still a turd.

So remember:

  1. Your first photo decides if she wants to see the rest of your profile. So it better be amazing.
  2. She’s looking at the rest of your profile to get a sense of your personality and if she’ll like hanging out with you. So be sure to have more than just selfies and portrait photos.
  3. The right bio can persuade a woman who’s on the fence about you to swipe you right.

My new clients often complain about how Tinder doesn’t work for them. But then I take a peek at their profile and instantly spot half a trillion mistakes that kill their attraction.

Is Tinder Boost worth it?

Honestly, I don’t understand the attitude of wanting to save money on things that are important to you.

Why would you want to be cheap when it comes to getting more fun women in your life?

Isn’t dating one of the most fun things there is?

It certainly is to me.

So here’s what I recommend: try it. Buy 5 Boosts and see what it does for you.

(Make sure you have a profile you’re satisfied with first.)

Holy Tip:

One of the most cost-efficient ways to spend your Boost is when you’re abroad or in a new city, and you’re going to stay for 7+ days.

Then you can use your Boost early to score 10+ extra matches to guarantee yourself a few dates.

It’s one of my favorite ways to use Boosts. Because it always gives me extra matches that I may have missed without it.

Get your new matches hooked to your texts

You know how a Tinder Boost works now, and how to completely and absolutely maximize its potential.

Go out there and apply my tips, my dearest disciple!

And once the matches start piling up…

…you’ll need an efficient way to open all those conversations.

A way that guarantees she texts back.

Sounds too good to be true?

Well… it’s true.
