Tips and Tricks to Save Money at eHarmony

Looking for love can be tough enough; you shouldn't have to take out a loan to get it. These tips will help you save money when using online dating site eHarmony, which charges a monthly fee for love seekers.

How to Save at eHarmony

  • Create a free profile. Everyone can create a profile for free—the cost comes in seeing your compatible matches. Creating a profile and answering the personality questionnaire will give you a feel for the site and figure out if it’ll be a good fit for you before committing to the service.

  • Take advantage of free events. Sporadically throughout the year (usually tied to holidays), eHarmony has a free communication weekend, where you can use your free account to communicate with compatible people at no charge. You could get away with using your free profile solely for the purpose of communicating during free weekends without ever having to pay a membership fee.

  • Use a coupon code. The site occasionally offers coupon codes. They are usually released one at a time, giving a discount to a specific type of membership, such as a 24-month Premier package. Codes typically last for months at a time. Visit CreditDonkey see current coupon codes.

  • Buy a long subscription. The longer you agree to be a member of eHarmony, the lower the monthly rate. For example, a six-month membership costs $45 per month, but a 24-month membership costs $10 per month. At least you’ll know you’re saving money if it takes you a while to find that special someone.

  • Don’t auto-renew. eHarmony automatically renews your account (using the normal price) 24 hours before it is about to expire. To avoid paying extra, cancel your membership a few days before it is due to renew and sign up again with a new sale or coupon code.

  • Choose the right plan. eHarmony offers 3 types of paid plans; choosing the right one will make sure you are satisfied with your online dating experience. Most users opt for the Basic Plan, which lets you find and communicate with matches. The Total Connect Plan adds a deeper personality analysis and the ability to talk on the phone with your matches. The Premier Plan is the most expensive but comes with a guarantee that will extend your membership if you don’t find someone, as well as the ability to get your identification verified by RelyID. This service shows up on your profile to let prospective suitors know that your ID has checked out, so they may be more open to initiating contact.

  • Add a la carte services. If you like a certain feature of the more expensive plans but don’t want to pay the full price, opt for an a la carte addition to your basic plan. Features like SecureCall (the ability to talk to your matches before meeting) and RelyID can be added for a monthly fee that is much less than upgrading your entire account.

When to Shop at eHarmony

  • Around holidays. Free communication weekends are a great way to try the service for free or to use the site without ever paying a membership fee. Such weekends happen about once a month throughout the year, but are typically tied to a holiday, such as Memorial Day, Valentine’s Day, or 4th of July.

  • Mid-summer. eHarmony tends to introduce new coupon codes in mid-summer. If you’ve missed your chance to sign up with a discount, late June to mid-July is the time to do it.

  • Valentine’s Day. The month of love brings specials to eHarmony, typically a discount on a 12-month membership that runs through the month.
