Bumble SuperSwipe Explained (Is It Worth The Price?)
Using a Bumble SuperSwipe lets a potential match know you’re *really* interested, as opposed to being one of those people who swipes right on every profile. But is a SuperSwipe worth the money?
In our experience, the answer is a resounding, "Yes!" - if you're in one of two specific situations. In this article, VIDA's dating experts reveal when using a SuperSwipe is worth it, how the premium feature works and how much it costs!

How Bumble Super Swipe Works
SuperSwipes are the same premise as a Tinder Super Like. It's a way for your "like" to stand out a little more.
You’ll know if someone Super Swiped you thanks to a little yellow notification bar that shows on their profile card when it comes up in your match feed.
What Happens When You SuperSwipe
To use a Bumble super like, simply tap the yellow badge with the white heart. That person will see a message on your primary photo that you Super Swiped their profile.
Normally you have to wait until both people have swiped left or right to see if there’s a connection, unless you’re a Bumble Premium user.
Bumble Premium lets you browse through profiles of potential matches who have already “liked” you - so when you swipe right, you’re guaranteed a match. It’s called BeeLine, and you can read more about it in this Bumble review.
How Much Does A SuperSwipe Cost?
SuperSwipes cost around $8.99 for 2, depending on your location. You'll get a discount for purchasing them in bulk that drives the price-per-use down.
|SuperSwipe Cost* On Bumble (2022)|
|30 SuperSwipes: $1.67/each|
|15 SuperSwipes: $2.33/each|
|5 SuperSwipes: $3.00/each|
|2 SuperSwipes: $4.50/each|
Bumble Boost & Premium subscribers get 5 SuperSwipes each week, and all users can purchase them ala carte in the Bumble app.
If you’re in a country where Bumble Coins haven’t been phased out yet, you can use the in-app currency to purchase them. Depending on your area, a SuperSwipe will cost one Bumble coin.
Coins cost between $2.30 and $3.20, with the price varying by how many you purchase at once. You can also use them to boost your profile's visibility via the Bumble Spotlight feature.
Is Paying For A Bumble SuperSwipe Worth It?
The price tag is what makes a SuperSwipe so powerful - you’re making an actual investment to let a potential match know you’re into them. That’s a pretty strong compliment, and it just might entice that person to swipe right.
Research has shown that receiving a scarce or pricey signifier of interest, like a digital rose, increases your chances of acceptance. So there’s definitely precedent that using the Superswipe feature could pay off for you.
Our dating experts have logged hundreds of thousands of hours on Bumble, swiping and messaging on behalf of our clients. Based on our firsthand experience, we've found there are two scenarios when spending the extra money makes the most sense:
- You REALLY like her. Men typically take the shotgun approach to liking women on dating apps, morphing into non-selective right-swiping machines. That can leave her wondering if she’s just another mindless right swipe. A Super Swipe conveys that you’re genuinely interested in her, to the point where you're willing to spend actual money to get her attention.
- You matched once already, but she let it expire without messaging you. Expired matches are eligible to pop up in your queue again. If she passed the first time, a Super Swipe could just prompt her to swipe right again and send that first message.
Bonus Tip: 3 Ways To Make Your Profile Worthy Of A Bumble SuperSwipe
You’re paying real money to use this feature, so you want your profile to seal the deal, right?
Here are 3 quick things you can do right now to be more attractive on Bumble:
#1: Take up more space in your pics.
Expansive postures like flinging your arms or legs out wide project confidence and dominance, both attractive traits.
#2: Your “good” side is your left side.
When given the choice between a photo showing the left side of someone’s face or the right, people strongly favor the left version.
In fact, this “leftward bias” can be traced back through history. Master painters like da Vinci consistently used this trick when painting portraits, so keep it in mind when choosing your photo lineup.
#3: Write a bio.
At 300 characters or less, Bumble bios are short, but you can pack a lot of attraction into it. You never know what will spark a connection, so skipping your bio is a real missed opportunity.
