Best Time To Use it

To use Spotlight, Bumble users must pay two Coins (bought through a separate in-app purchase). One coin is $0.99 in the U.S., or £1.99 in the U.K. Spotlight will then show your profile to more users for the next 30 minutes.

Best Time To Use it

As you get 30 minutes of prime time, the best time to use Bumble Spotlight is when most people are online and will have a chance to see your profile and match with you. According to studies on Bumble, this period is on Sunday nights, from around 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Generally, we suggest you enabling Spotlight in evenings as people tend to use the messaging during the days and be more active with the swiping during the evenings.

As we have explained, the comparable feature to Spotlight in Tinder is Tinder Boost. The functionality is basically the same, you also get 30 minutes of prime time on Tinder with Boost. Although as Tinder is more crowded, it is more likely that it is not as valuable on Tinder as it is on Bumble.

As you need at least two Bumble coins, you must buy 5 coins at once minimum that cost 8 USD, which means you can get it for around 3.2 USD. If you buy more coins at once you can get it for as cheap as 2.5 USD. We think it is a fair price for a great feature that will most likely gain you significantly more matches.

However, if you live in a rural area where the number of Bumble users is relatively low, it is a waste of money to use Spotlight as your profile will be seen with or without Spotlight anyway. In this case, it might be more worthwhile to try out SuperSwipe that shows a profile that you like him or her before they would swipe you right.

Yes, Spotlight really works, it is more likely that you didn’t use Spotlight the right way. If you live in a rural area and your profile has already been shown to most men or women in the neighborhood you won’t get any boost from Spotlight. Another reason might be that your profile sucks, you don’t have great pictures. Don’t forget, you only get higher visibility. So just because someone sees your profile doesn’t mean she or he will swipe you right.
