With that being said, online dating may not come so easy to everyone, leaving some questioning if they should pay the extra fee for a dating app's premium services.

Is Bumble Boost worth it? What does it get you?

Bumble Boost is a paid tier option offered by Bumble. If you elect to pay for Bumble Boost, you will be able to "Backtrack" (rewind to your last swipe), extend time on your current matches, and use unlimited swipes per day. On top of that, Bumble Boost subscribers get one Spotlight per week, which puts your profile above others in the algorithm, as well as five SuperSwipes per week, which puts your profile at the top of the deck when you SuperSwipe on someone.

All-in-all, Bumble Boost is worth it for people who are looking to (literally) boost their presence on the app for a certain amount of time. If you're looking to make quick plans, you might benefit from the added exposure it affords.

Is Bumble Premium worth it? What does it get you?

Another step above Bumble Boost is Bumble Premium. This tier gives subscribers access to unlimited advanced filters to customize their matches, the ability to see your Beeline so you can see your admirers, travel mode, backtracking, the ability to extend time on your current matches, the ability to rematch with users when your match has expired, and unlimited daily swipes. On top of that, you get one Spotlight per week, five SuperSwipes per week, and Incognito Mode.

So the big question remains: is it worth it? For those who want complete control over their Bumble experience, intend to spend a lot of time on the app, or travel frequently may benefit from the assortment of customizable options that Bumble Premium affords its subscribers.
