SHOTS FIRED: Tinder Implements Old Geezer Tax w/ New Upgrade

Popular dating app Tinder recently launched the paid service, Tinder Plus. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it) the applications’s price will vary based on the user’s age.

“Lots of products offer differentiated price tiers by age like Spotify does for students, for example. Tinder is no different; during our testing we’ve learned, not surprisingly, that younger users are just as excited about TinderPlus, but are more budget constrained, and need a lower price to pull the trigger.”

For users under the age of 28, the upgrade will cost $10USD, while any user ages 29 and up will be charged $20USD. Updated features include Passport and Rewind. Passport allows users to change the location to match with people across the world, while Rewind allows users to take back their last swipe.  Also, there are unlimited likes. You’re not obligated to upgrade, but doing so will give you the benefit of unlimited swipes, while the free version does not.

So… you’re telling me Tinder wants me to pay $9.99 a month to still get no matches, in addition to having the option of people outside my area to swipe left too?
