So how much does Match.com cost in 2018? Match.com subscription prices start from as little as $15.99 per month (USA/Canada) and £12.99 per month (UK). Yes it’s not free, but it is certainly much cheaper than a good night out and your odds of meeting someone are a million times higher! The free trial will also help you to test the waters.

The prices for a single month’s membership are a lot more expensive than taking the three or six month options. Which is fine, as a single months membership is unlikely to lead to you finding your soulmate, unless you are very lucky indeed! I would recommend three months bare minimum if you are on a budget, and six months if you have a little more change to spare. Rome was not built in a day, and the love of your life will not be found in a day either. Also opting for the 6 month subscription will enable the Match Guarantee that I talk about below.
Comparison of Membership Plans
Here you can clearly see the benefits of having a subscription vs a standard member:
6 Month Match Guarantee
Match is so confident that you will find someone within 6 months of joining up, that if you don’t, they will give you another 6 months on the site absolutely free.
Needless to say, there are some terms and conditions to this offer, but they are fairly straightforward. You simply need to complete your profile, upload a photo, and make sure you message at least 5 members per month. You can view their full terms and conditions here.
Match.com vs eHarmony
I’ve already written an in-depth guide to Match vs eHarmony, so I’ll just cover the highlights here. I generally recommend Match over eHarmony for three reasons. I personally know a lot more people who have met their partners on Match.com than on eHarmony. eHarmony is a little more expensive, but not much. I’ve been contacted by a lot more people who have had success on Match than on eHarmony.
That’s not to say that eHarmony does not work, it works extremely well, especially if you are searching for your soulmate. If you can afford to join both sites then I’d recommend you go for it, as then you are effectively doubling your odds of finding someone. You can find more details on eHarmony’s subscription costs here.

Match often offers subscription discounts and free weekends from time to time. Currently they are offering 25% off their subscription prices. Simply click the 25% off banner to take advantage of this discount.
My husband left me after three years of marriage for one of my best friends. I could have let this depress me for years, but I’ve never been one to feel sorry for myself or sit around and be miserable. So after just 4 months (although they felt like 4 years) I decided to try Match after a recommendation from a friend. I think I may have also had a little help from above, because I’m now engaged to the very first person I met on the site and couldn’t be happier. Maybe I’ll invite my ex-husband and ex best friend to the wedding 😉
I was probably guilty of spending far too much time at work trying to climb the ladder, rather than looking for someone special. So the years simply drifted by, and each time Christmas came around, I felt lonely and sorry for myself. After numerous friends had met some really great partners online, I decided to give a go for myself. My requirements in a partner were quite simple. They should be honest, fun to be with, family oriented, and have good values. I joined up to Match and was surprised how easy it was to talk to people with similar interests. In my first 6 months on the site I went out on 7 dates in total, sadly I just didn’t feel a click with anyone. I took advantage of the Match Guarantee and got another 6 months for free, in which time I met a brilliant young lady and now find myself leaving work early just so I can spend more time with her. If you’ve never tried online dating before, don’t be worried, everyone is doing it today and it’s so much easier to meet people than heading to your local bar.
My Short Review
If you are new to online dating then you are really going to love Match.com. Millions of single men and women will be at your fingertips. Extensive search options allow you to filter members by age, location, interests, religion, height, and even eye and hair color if you are really that choosy.
Members age from 18 to 80 years old and there is an even 50:50 split between sexes. There are millions of active members on the site every single day, and over 90% are serious about finding a partner for the long-term. This is definitely not a site for one night flings.
The site itself is very intuitive, even if you are new to dating online you will be up and running in no time at all. There are mobile apps available too for the iPhone, Android, and Windows phones; so you can check on your new messages even when you are out and about, at work, or on the toilet.
No dating site is free from scammers, but Match does a great job at identifying and promptly removing them. However, it still pays to be vigilant. So remember if it sounds too good to be true, it most likely is.
So to sum it up, if you are serious about putting your singleton days behind you, can afford the subscription costs, you really don’t need to look much further than Match.com.

If you are seriously looking for someone to share your life with, and do decide to join one of the largest and most popular dating sites on the planet, please remember that this does not guarantee you success. You will still need to make the effort! Try to contact at least five people per week, if you do this, your chances of success before your subscription expires will be so much better.
How does the 6 month guarantee work? If you don’t find someone within your first 6 months on the site, you get an extra 6 months for free. You simply need to complete your profile, upload a photo, and make sure you message at least 5 members per month. You can view their full terms and conditions here.
How do I cancel my Match.com Subscription If you don’t have a paid subscription or have turned off your auto-renewal, you can cancel your membership by visiting the Change/Cancel Membership page in your Account Settings (the gear icon). If you do have a paid subscription and you have not cancelled the renewal, then you can cancel this here.
Why is Match so expensive? A paid membership site helps to keep the spammers away, and generally people who pay for a subscription are a lot more serious about finding love than those who don’t. A 6 month subscription costs $17.99 per month, that adds up to $107.94 over the 6 month period. If you met the love of your life, do you think she would be worth $107.94? Or putting it another way, how much would you be willing to pay to meet the love of your life? I’m certainly not going to put a price on my partner’s head, but it’s a lot higher than $107.94.
Is Match a good dating site? There are a lot of bad dating sites out there, many are run more like credit card phishing scams than dating sites. Match thankfully is one of the good sites, a site where you will have a very good chance of finding your partner providing you put in the effort.
Does Match really work? Yes. I know of plenty of people who have had success with Match, and I’m sure if you ask around in your circle of friends, you will probably hear similar success stories.
Are there any fake profiles on Match? Compared to other sites there are very few fake profiles, I’ve only ever spotted a couple during my time on Match and they are usually removed fairly promptly. That said, if the person contacting you is asking for money, or simple sounds too good to be true, then I’d recommend flagging the site with Match so they can check them out for you.
What is the phone number for Match.com? If you want to contact Match you can call them on the following number: 1-800-926-2824
