Christian Mingle Payment Options
According to their terms of service, Christian Mingle accepts:
- American Express
- Apple inApp Payments
While they did say this, the signup page only showed the major credit card options so if a major credit card does not work for you, we recommend contacting their very helpful support. They did say that at this time they were not accepting any cash or personal/business checks for membership payment.
Christian Mingle Cost
The chart above breaks down the different membership lengths and their associated costs available at Christian Mingle. In the past, Christian Mingle had multiple membership types for you to choose from. It appears that a Spark Network wide decision was recently made to make things simpler with one plan that has all of the available features.
While we did say that all membership levels are the same, technically Christian Mingle still has two different membership types that you can choose from. The first is your free trial membership that you can get automatically through one of the links on this page. As you can probably guess, your free trial is free 🙂 You will have limited options, though, which we will cover in the free trial section below.
The second option for a Christian Mingle membership is their premium membership. While they used to offer a basic membership, this is the only option now. This premium membership is the exact same as the original premium membership (you still are going to get all the features you used to love if you’ve been a Christian Mingle member before).
This includes the Messaging+ feature that we used to rant and rave about paying extra for when they had multiple memberships. The Messaging+ feature allows ANY member to respond to messages you send them. This includes free trial members. If you message a free trial member first, they are allowed to respond to you free of charge. Here’s what we had to say before the change in pricing and plans:
“Honestly, if you’re going to sign up for Christian Mingle, you should seriously consider getting this (Messaging+) perk. Anyone who’s still got an account on there you would be able to message. Maybe someone you like signed up and never got around to activating their membership. With this premium feature, you can message them, and they can message you back. Otherwise, you’d have to wait and hope they got a membership one day to be able to respond to you.”
Now, you don’t even have to pay extra for this. It’s automatically included in their standard plan!
You have three different term lengths that you can elect to pay for on Christian Mingle. The longer the term you select, the less expensive each month gets. Basically, they reward you for committing to a longer membership. This is standard across the board in the online dating industry.
The one-month plan is $24.99 per month. The three-month plan is $34.99 per month. The one-month plan is $49.99. All of these plans are billed as a one-time payment when you activate a paid membership. The total amounts you will be charged are listed in the chart at the top of the page.
If you’re trying to decide which membership length to buy, here is what we recommend.
We’d recommend at the very minimum getting a three-month membership. You may be thinking you can get on there and message a ton of people and get contact info and be out the door in a month. The problem with this is it takes time for people to respond, time to build comfort, and then time to set up dates to actually meet. Basically, we respect your excitement to try and save a few bucks but remember, this isn’t pants or shoe shopping. You’re looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with. It’s probably worth a couple extra bucks and a little more time commitment out of you.
Between the three and six-month membership is totally up to you. The six-month membership is a considerable amount of savings (50% off the one-month price and about 30% off the three-month price). It’s up to you!
Auto Renewal – Christian Mingle Cost
Keep in mind that every Christian Mingle membership does automatically set up to renew. This means that at the end of your term they will bill you again for the same membership you currently have. The good news if you don’t want this to happen or are worried about forgetting is that all you need to do is contact their support and let them know that you do not want reoccurring billing set up on your account.
You’ll still be able to use all features of your account for the entire duration of your membership, and if you do decide to renew for a longer term, you can always do that and don’t run a risk of losing your profile or anything like that. They aren’t going to delete everything just because your membership term ended.
The Free Trial
Christian Mingle gives you a nice free trial that you can access with the link below. You’ll automatically receive the trial and be able to start browsing through matches for free. With the free trial, you can create an account, load up pictures, finish your profile, and browse through all of your potential matches. If a premium member contacts you, you will be able to respond as well. The only thing you won’t be able to do is to send messages to members or respond to messages from basic members. You will need to upgrade to a paid membership to do that.
What is nice, though, is that you’ll be able to see all your matches, look at their photos, and see their profile information. You’ll be able to browse all the singles in your area (or any area) completely free. Christian Mingle does this because they’re confident in their product and if you read our review we linked to above, you’ll understand why.
Take a few minutes and check out the matches in your area. You may be pleasantly surprised at who you find 🙂
