Before we compare Tinder Gold vs Plus, you want to be familiar with the rating system.
Every feature gets awarded 1 to 5 TextGod Butts.
1 Butt is poor, 5 Butts is excellent.
By the way, did you know I created The Profile Checklist. You just fill in the blanks, and you discover where your profile is lacking the necessary attraction switches. As a bonus, I review a Tinder profile from a reader, using The Profile Checklist. Knowing your flaws will get you on the path to multiplying your matches. Download it here for free.
Tinder Plus Bonus 1: Infinite likes
As of 2019, Tinder decreased its maximum likes per 12 hours.
At the start it was 120.
And now it’s user-dependent, ranging from anywhere between 50 – 100.
Tinder Plus changes all that.
Whether you swipe 10 ladies or 1337 million ladies, it’s all good.
But do you need infinite likes?
- How sexy is your profile?
- How many of your matches lead to a date?
- And how many dates would you like a week?
If your profile is crummy, you may get 1 match for every 10 likes on Tinder.
That’s between 5 – 10 matches every 12 hours.
And if 1 out of every 10 matches leads to a date, you may have 1 date or ZERO.
In which case infinite likes could be useful.
Swiping too much hurts the rating of your Tinder account.
It’s better to build a bulletproof profile and swipe selectively.
How do you fix the holes in your profile?
You use my free Tinder Profile Checklist.
Check it out here.
I give the Infinite Like feature 3 TextGod Butts.
Tinder Plus Bonus 2: Rewind
If you’re quick swiper, this is for you.
You’re swiping faster than that white haired kid from X-men and BOOM.
You toss your perfect 10 to the left and out of your life.
Unless you call up Professor Xavier to find her with his special people-finding hat.
If you aren’t on good terms with Professor X, you can also useTinder’s Rewind function.
One press of a button and your 10 is pulled out of the trash and back onto your screen.
The benefits of Rewind depend entirely on your swiping habits.
Do you often swipe hotties left by accident?
Then Rewind is perfect for you.
Swipe as fast and messy as you want, because have an infinite number of rewinds.
Plus you need Rewind for a Tinder hack you’ll learn later in this article.
Missing a cutie isn’t a biggie.
Fuark it. There’s plenty more where that came from.
Tinder Plus Bonus 3: Superlikes (5 instead of 1)
An insight about the Superlike you might not like.
You see, if you’ve used Tinder, you know the Superlike.
All free accounts get exactly ONE.
And Tinder claims it’s much better than the regular like:
“You’re 3 times as likely to match with them, and conversations on average last 70% longer.”
These numbers are blown out of proportion.
Team TextGod and I have handed out thousands of Superlikes.
And while the odds of a match is (slightly) higher, conversations don’t magically go better.
If you don’t have a gold medal in Tinder jibber jabber, a Superlike isn’t going to help you seal the deal.
If you don’t want to ruin your Tinder convo with a cute match, check out my Tinder Texting Guide.
Now for my Superlike hack that only works if you have Rewind:
– Swipe until you find a jaw-dropping cutie.
– Swipe them right.
– Is it a match? Congrats! You got a match and SAVED a Superlike.
– No match? Hit Rewind and send her a Superlike.
A last remark on Superlikes.
Experience has taught me that some love it when you send Superlikes.
While others think less of you, because your Superlike shows too much interest.
And who belongs to which group comes from trial and error.
Good luck, muchacho.
Tinder Plus Bonus 4: Ad free!
If an instantly swipeable Ad turns you apeshit, this feature is for you.
Climbing up skyscrapers and swatting down planes is no way to live your life unless you enjoy fighting Godzilla.
Don’t make a monkey out of yourself.
Tinder is no reason to go bananas.
Just get Tinder Plus and…
Ads are gone.
But if you aren’t bothered by ads that can be tossed aside in 1 millisecond…
Going ad-free is no reason for Tinder Plus or Gold.
Tinder Plus Bonus 5: the Passport feature
Tinder’s Passport feature is useless for some, but could be great for you.
Let’s dig into it.
First, what does the Passport feature do?
It lets you put down your location anywhere in the world, letting you swipe in London from your living room in New York.
Is it for you?
I’m not sure.
Do you never leave your town or city? Then, no.
Unless you enjoy chatting with strangers on the internet you have no intention of meeting.
But if you travel a lot, Tinder Passport can greatly enrich your sex life.
Let’s say you’re about to go on a trip.
A month from now you’ll be in Barcelona.
What do you in the meantime?
- Set your Tinder location to Barcelona
- Swipe and chat with the locals
- Set up dates
- Continue regular life until your plane leaves
- Arrive in Barcelona, get cleaned up and go on a date with your match
Without Tinder Passport, you have to swipe on location.
And depending on your texting skills, it can take days, maybe a week, before you take your match on a date.
If your trip abroad is short, you may fly back without having tasted the local cuisine.
So I give Tinder Passport 5 TextGod Butts.
Tinder Plus Bonus 6 & 7: Manage your privacy
This feature is great if you’re a suave super spy who saves the world from evil.
But it’s also beneficial to:
- And undercover aliens.
Because you can keep your Tinder profile a secret from the masses.
And control who sees you: everyone or only people you’ve liked.
Plus you can hide your age and distance.
Imagine you’re about to go on vacation to the safest city in the world, Tokyo.
(Unless, of course, you’re a dolphin.)
So you text with the Japanese locals through the Passport feature.
Because you notice that the women don’t like chatting to someone so far away, you turn your distance off.
Now all is right.
And before you know it, you have multiple dates lined up for when you arrive in the Orient.
Tinder Plus Bonus 8: Boost
Want as many matches as Zac Efron? Then…
You’re shit out of luck. Because that’s not happening.
But if you want LOTS more matches than usual, Tinder Boost is your friend.
Put simply, this is your Tinder account with a Boost:
Yeah, you got that right. With one click Tinder Boost dyes your hair blond.
That really gets the ladies wet.
I kid, I kid.
Use Tinder Boost and you skip to the front of the line.
For 30 minutes your profile sits on the top of every girl’s swiping stack of the neighborhood.
Tinder claims you’ll get about 10 times more views.
Experience shows Boost gets you 7 to 8 times more eyeballs.
If you have Tinder Plus or Gold, you get one Boost per month.
You’ll have to buy them separately from the shop.
Does your match screen look like a ghost town? Tinder Boost is the quickest way to liven it up.
That wraps it up for Tinder Plus.
Now onto Tinder Gold.
Tinder Gold Bonus 1: See who likes you
If you’re on the fence about Tinder Gold, this tip will settle it for you.
Does not knowing who liked you keep up up at night?
Don’t you have the time to swipe for cute girls?
Then Tinder Gold is exactly what you need.
Because a Gold member can enter the Matches & Messages screen (see below),
and click on the gold-lined circle to see a list of all the ladies who swiped him right.
Like any woman from that list and you get an instant match.
If I would like every woman who liked me, I’d get 5.569 new matches.
Which I won’t do. Because much like Jules Winnfield I’m a…
Let’s sneak a peek into my circle of validation.
As you can see, inside is a list of all the ladies who liked you.
Here I swiped a pair of boobs because they seemed awfully nippy. (Shout-out to wordplay.)
As a true gentlemen, I offered them the warmth of my inbox.
And I swiped her right to prove a point: swiping is an instant match.
The best part of this feature is that it saves you time.
Build an epic profile and wait for the likes to pour in.
Do you feel like your Tinder profile can use a makeover?

It points out the weaknesses in your profile and how to instantly fix them.
More likes guaranteed.

Tinder Gold Bonus 2: Top picks
When you swipe like Trump compliments Mexicans (you don’t like to), this is for you.
Every day, Top Picks gives you a handful of women to choose from.
Find it by clicking the golden diamond on the swipe screen.
Ding-a-ling! (Like when you enter an old fashioned shop.)
You found your way into Top Picks.
I can smell the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle from here.
These are your new picks of the day, hot off the press.
Swipe ‘em while they’re current, because Top Picks are like the news.
After one day, everyone forgets about it.
So if a girl charms you like walls charm Trump, swipe right within 24 hours.
One thing that stands out with Top Picks is the quality.
On average, the photos show more skin than cloth.
Probably so you’d spend all your Superlikes and buy more.
The above photo is an illusion.
Because if you look real carefully, you’ll eventually see more than a pair of boobs.
Specifically, you’ll see the girl with the cap is called a ‘Scholar’.
She didn’t give herself that title.
And the app does so on the basis of their profile info.
Creating titles like adventure, model, yogi, and so on.
It’s supposed to save you time by saying what she’s like.
But Tinder titles are about as useful as sweaters in summer.
The only reason the cap-toting lady is a scholar, is because she told Tinder she went to uni.
And if Tinder has a photo of you walking through your garden, you’d probably be labeled an ‘adventurer’.
So titles hardly reflect your personality.
To add insult to injury, these ‘carefully’ selected women are less likely to match with you than a random.
Here’s me scrolling even further down my Top Picks.
Which reminds me, why read about Tinder Top Picks if you can watch me?
Check out my video where I also scare off a TextGod groupie.
Anyway, back on track.
The girls in grey are locked Top Picks.
And if I want to unlock them, I have to buy more Top Picks.
In short, Top Picks is a ruse to get your money.
Top Picks gets even less than the minimum!
Half a TextGod Butt. One butt cheek.
Tinder Plus vs Tinder Gold: The Final Verdict
Plus or Gold?
What’s more your speed?
First and foremost, Tinder Classic is more than fine…
If you don’t travel often and don’t mind swiping before you get a match.
Is Tinder Plus the best choice?
- Do you get few Tinder matches?
- Often travel outside of your hometown?
- And want to get more out of online dating?
Then Tinder Plus has your name on it.
The monthly Boost and Passport feature will definitely bring more ladies into your life.
Plus you’ll have infinite Likes, and Rewind to bring back the cuties you swiped the wrong way.
Are you still hemming and hawing about whether to get Tinder Plus?
Watch my Tinder Plus review so you can make up your mind.
Or is Tinder Gold better for you?
Are you a Tinder superstar who is drowning in matches?
And does every text of yours ooze so much testosterone that your matches faint every time you slide into their DMs?
Plus, do you not have much time to spend?
Then Tinder Gold is right for you.
Before you become a paying Tinder user, something important.
Applying my tips will give you more dates than any Tinder feature.
So let me drop some knowledge on your ass and improve your luck on Tinder.
Step 1: Be yourself.
Tinder Tip 1: Get the most out of your matches and dates
You can date pretty girls through Tinder, even if you have a face only a mother could love.
That may be hard to believe if your match screen looks like Kate Moss’ favorite meal.
But your matches are NOT a reflection of your looks or personality.
Your matches reflect the quality of your profile.
And that is easily fixed.
All you need is imagination.
If you don’t live in Neverland, I have the second-best thing.
A video with 10 Tinder tips.
So kick back and watch how to get more cuties into your life.
And after you’re done, I got a couple more tips for you.
Starting with the opener.
Tinder Tip 2: The opener that gets her to invest
90% of guys get this wrong. Let’s make you part of the 10%.
‘Hey’ gets almost no success.
Generic pick up lines do slightly better.
But the Personalized Opener does the BEST.
A first place contender is the Clickbait Opener.
It’s my most-effective premade icebreaker.
And you can find it [optin:clickbait=HERE for the low price of ZERO dollars].
Let’s return to the Personalized Opener.
My personal favorite.
Not only because it gets her to invest the most, but because it’s fun.
Although some may call it difficult.
You see, making a text personal costs effort.
It’s a mix of:
- Studying her profile
- Finding the interesting
- And making it funny
Here’s a Tinder practice dummy.
Although the point is not to smack it. (A gentleman never smacks a lady unless it’s in the bedroom.)
Now study her profile.
Check out her photo (usually there’s more, but one is enough), job and bio.
What stands out to you?
It could be the hat, her hair, or the fact she thinks there’s such a thing as a ‘red haired adonis’. L-O-L!
Once you got something, move onto the final phase: making it funny.
Don’t feel bad if you can’t find the joke.
Simply go back a step and switch topics.
And don’t be too hard on yourself.
Your joke doesn’t have to be hilarious. It just has to break the ice.
Have you cooked up an opener for the carrot top?
Here’s what I said:
See, not hilarious.
But it was good enough to get a laugh.
Partly because you’re better than the plebs.
But mostly because it’s PERSONAL.
I’m literally talking about HER bag of trash. And that made it magical.
So magical, that she even agreed to take out my trash a few texts later.
If you want two extra openers and more Tinder tips for guys, click on the link.
Your icebreaking skills will definitely grow to over 9.000
Now that all your matches are replying, you want to keep the ball rolling.
Tinder Tip 3: How to keep the conversation going
If opening is like fighting your sibling, keeping the conversation moving is like fighting a tank with a BB gun.
Most bros don’t make it out alive.
A minute of silence for all the boys who lost their lives in the Battle of the Friendzone.
*plays with a fidget spinner in each hand*
Leading Tinder conversations to the date is one of my specialties.
And while there are many roads that lead to her panties, there’s none better than…
My video on how to ask a girl out over text.
Most meetups don’t happen because your date request (or the story leading up to it) was probably:
And if you want to convince her to come out on a date with you, your method must get her excited.
Your method must convince her you make her life better.
All that and more in my 5-minute information dense video.
Watch it here.
That marks the end of the Tinder Plus vs Tinder Gold review.
Do with it as you please.
