Want to let someone know you’re really interested, before they’ve even decided which way to swipe? Now you can, thanks to Bumble SuperSwipe!
If you’re looking for a full rundown of Bumble Super Swipe, look no further. This short article has it all, including cost and when it’s worth using.
How Bumble SuperSwipe Works
Similar to a SuperLike on Tinder, using a SuperSwipe means you’re *really* interested in someone – as opposed to being one of those people who swipes right on every profile.
You’ll know if someone SuperSwiped you thanks to a little yellow notification bar that shows on their profile card when it comes up in your match feed.
And if you want to SuperSwipe someone, simply tap the yellow badge with the white heart. That person will see a message on your primary photo that you SuperSwiped 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 Boost user.
Bumble Boost lets you browse through profile 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 in this post.
How Much Does A SuperSwipe Cost?
Here’s what makes a SuperSwipe so powerful – at almost $2 each, you’re making an actual investment to let someone know you’re into them. That’s a pretty strong compliment, and it just might entice that person to swipe right.
SuperSwipes cost $1.99 each, with a discount for purchasing them in bulk that drives the price down to as low as $1.25 each. You can purchase them using Bumble Coins, which is Bumble’s in-app currency:
Is Paying For SuperSwipes Worth It?
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 SuperSwiping could pay off for you.
Here 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 SuperSwipe 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: Make Sure Your Profile Is SuperSwipe Worthy
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.
