Last updated: February 6, 2017 - 3:57pm EST

Now that we have covered how eHarmony works, and told you about how to stay safe while using the online dating service, you may be wondering how much eHarmony costs to use. In this article, we’ll go over how much it costs to use eHarmony to help you decide if it will be worth it for you.

Is eHarmony free?

eHarmony is free to sign up for, but most of the features require a paid subscription. You can create an account, answer the questionnaire, and see a sample of your matches for free. However, to get the full experience and have access to all the features, you’ll need a paid membership.

eHarmony sometimes offers free trial memberships in order to entice their customers into paying for their services. Their way of seeing it: they’ll give you a one-month free trial, get you hooked, and when that month is up, you’ll start using their paid service because you’re hooked. Look out for these promotions on eHarmony to help save you some money.

How to get an eHarmony free trial

eHarmony free trials aren’t permanent – this means they come and go. You may be able to find free trials throughout the year – around the holidays or Valentine’s Day, for example – but there isn’t a free trial that sticks around all the time.

Not all of their free trials will be for a month, like most other sites offer. Most of the time, eHarmony gives a free week or few days when you sign up on a certain weekend.

There is one way to get a “free trial” of sorts. Since it’s free to sign up for the website, you can sign up and complete the profile questionnaire. Then, you can sign up for a plan. Once you’ve signed up and “paid” for a plan, you’ll have three days to cancel your membership for a full refund. This is a great loophole if you want to fully use eHarmony when they don’t have a free trial promotion and you don’t want to pay right off the bat.

But be careful: if you don’t cancel within three days, eHarmony will keep your money, even if you cancel your membership later.

How much does eHarmony cost?

The cost of your upgraded eHarmony membership will vary based on which plan you decide to purchase. The longer you commit to paying to use eHarmony, the lower the cost per month will be. If you go with the 6-month plan, your cost per month is $32.95. If you go with the 12-month plan, your cost per month will be $20.95.
