eHarmony is enormous both in the United States, Canada as well as the United Kingdom with owning approximately 14% of the online dating real estate in the United States.

Its long-standing history as one of the leading dating sites as well as having one of the largest member bases is what makes it so enticing to new users. Also since single members that meet on it have a higher success of marriage and lower divorce rates as they are marriage minded individuals.

I am not going to go over a full review of the eHarmony website because you can do that here. Although eHarmony is not a free dating website, it has a free trial version, and there is a reason that they charge a premium for all of the features and successful long-term relationships people have on their platform.

Without further rambling let’s check out how much eHarmony paid subscription costs.

Current eHarmony Subscription Prices in the United States/Canada

Subscription Length*Monthly PricePercent Saving
12 months$7.95
76%
6 months$13.95
58%
3 months$32.95

*eHarmony no longer offers one-month subscriptions

The savings are extracted from the most expensive plan which is the 3-month plan.

The chart above shows the pricing for eHarmony and it is three months, six months, and 12-month plans that they offer. These prices might seem crazy, but the 6 and 12-month subscriptions are cheaper in total than the three-month plan right now.

Both the three-month plan, six-month plan, and 12-month plan have the option to pay off the total in three separate installments. The payment for the three-month plan can be paid off in three payments of $32.95. The six-month plan can be paid off in three separate installments of $27.90. The 12-month plan can be paid off in three separate installments of $31.80.

How much does the eHarmony Premium plan cost?

Subscription Length*Monthly PricePercent Saving
12 Months$12.9564%
6 Months$18.9547%
3 Months$35.950%

*eHarmony no longer offers one-month subscriptions

eHarmony also offers its premium subscription plan which is called the Premium plan. This will only cost you a little bit more than their basic plan and includes some additional features.

It lets you get your identification verified with a company called RelyID. This is beneficial to let potential members know that you are a real person and get fake profiles of the best dating site.

Another feature is that they let you communicate with your matches via the phone (through the eHarmony platform). The last feature that it offers a more in-depth personality analysis gotten from the personality questions answered when you join the site and complete your profile which goes beyond what the 29 features of compatibility test give you.

This helps you find matches that are even more compatible with the matching algorithm.

How much does eHarmony cost in the UK?

The prices for the UK are fairly similar to those in the United States and Canada but can vary slightly depending on the exchange rate. Here is how much eHarmony costs for the basic subscription:

Subscription LengthMonthly PricePercent Saving
24 months £12.9571%
12 months £27.9538%
6 months £35.9520%
1 months £44.950%

If you are serious about getting started with eHarmony I suggest at least the six-month membership plan because staying on a dating website on a monthly subscription will not give you (or the algorithm) enough time to find your perfect match.

Various payment options are available to pay for the subscription which includes but not limited to a credit card.

In my personal experience as well as the experiences of my friends, the six or 12-month subscriptions should be the minimum amount of time that you try eHarmony to find compatible people.

Let’s take a look at exactly what you would get with the free, basic and premium eHarmony plans. The prices in the chart are based on the six-month price.

Available Plans

  • Access to the book a you
  • See your matches photos

Whether or not the premium eHarmony package is worth it compared to the basic package is up to you. I honestly do not know whether or not there deeper personality analysis will help you find better matches or not.

The 29 dimensions of compatibility with the basic package is already pretty extensive.

In regards to getting your identification verified, I can see how this is a useful feature. When I get a match on any dating website, I am curious whether or not it is a fake profile or not.

Putting this in reverse, I can see how I would appear to be a real person compared to somebody who does not have their ID verified.

I think it is cool that they added the feature to call one another with the premium subscription plan. People are very hesitant to give out their number to somebody that they just met on an online dating site.

But at the same time when you are talking to somebody on the phone, and you can hear each other’s voices, there is a stronger connection that is built compared to merely being behind the screen and typing.

Hearing somebody’s voice verifies that they are a real person, which builds trust.

Although the premium eHarmony plan costs more, those 30 features are compelling and might be worth the extra few dollars a month.

A Quick lesson on how eHarmony works

Compared to other websites like match.com, Ourtime or elite singles, eHarmony functions entirely differently. What separates it from the rest is its unique matchmaking algorithm using its famous 29 Dimensions of compatibility.

When you create a profile on eHarmony, you need to have a personality profile by taking an in-depth personality test. This personality test will help you find like-minded individuals based on your likes, dislikes and personality traits.

If you want a perfect match, you must endeavor to fill in all details in your dating profile during the signup process for proper analysis of your personality.

From personal experience, the quality of the matches I find on eHarmony is much better than those from other dating websites with their different matching systems.

You will receive new matches but few every day based on the 29 features of compatibility tests that detect when you started.

Although there is no search and filter function like other dating websites, the matches that you receive are of extremely high quality. You can sit back and let the matchmaking algorithm (compatibility matching system) do the work while you reap the rewards.

After you are matched with someone on eHarmony, there is a form of guided communication to make sure that they are even more compatible. The communication guide goes as follows: quick questions makes or breaks, dig deeper and then eHarmony mail.

If you like, you can skip straight to eHarmony mail where you can talk with one another, but I have always found that this guide can weed out bad matches that might not fit perfectly with you.

You’ll find having a highly compatible match makes it easy to have a successful relationship leading to marriage.

The ultimate for eHarmony is that your search of a lover lead you to marrying your soulmate. Having this in mind you should know there are stuffs that shouldn’t be on your profile in order to keep your to-be partner interested. You should use pictures that tells the story of who you are and a username that is suitable.

After you are successful with the match try to figure out what can stop you from seeing each other and overcome it together or if it is too much, you let go and hope for a better someone out there.

Do not give up for love will find you!

Conclusion on how much does eHarmony cost

How much does eharmony cost? - The full breakdown

As you can see from the pricing chart, the monthly subscription price drops significantly as the subscription length increases. The one-month subscription plan is by far the most expensive and in my opinion not worth it.

eHarmony premium subscriptions are automatically renewed, but you can select the “cancel my subscription” option before your subscription expires.

If you would like the harmony matching process to work its wonders, I suggest choosing at the minimum a six months subscription plan.

This will let you get used to the eHarmony platform, and give you time for the algorithm to find a perfect match for you!

  • Leslie says:

    Hey Amy and thanks for all the great information on the prices for eHarmony. I remember the prices were a lot higher a few years ago. Glad to see that they have dropped a little bit 🙂 What do you think about the premium vs basic membership? Is it worth it?

    • Hey Leslie,
      I’m glad you liked the information. I tried to keep these prices up-to-date as often as I can as they fluctuate from time to time. I am also glad that the prices have dropped over the last few years. It seems like they are trying to stay competitive with mobile application prices which are on average much lower. I think this is great for all of us and the online dating community as a whole. In terms of the premium or basic membership, it really matters if you can afford the four dollars extra a month for the premium membership. I think it is totally worth it because it will bring you significantly more matches to your profile. Since this is the whole reason I signed up for the dating website in the first place, four dollars is really insignificant and is basically the same price as a Starbucks coffee (which I drink way too much). I hope this helped!

  • Alison says:

    Information much appreciated thanks a lot. Do you think it is worth it to wait for a free communication weekend or is that not worth it? I like seeing the prices lower than they used to be!

    • Overall, I think that the free communication weekend can be good as long as you have the patience to wait for. EHarmony lets you sign up for free in order to browse their members but the lack of communication is really impossible unless you get messaged from a paying member. This is always an option, but with the overall membership costs this low, I don’t think is worth it to wait unless you are on a very tight budget. I hope this helps!

  • Shelley says:

    Hey I was wondering is eharmony really free. well at least for a some of the features that they offer? I heard of the free communication weekend. Just wondering if the service is worth it if you do not pay? Thanks

    • Hey Shelley,

      Yeah there is a free plan that you can sign up for with eHarmony. There are some limitations though with the biggest one being the inability to message someone you are interested in. There is a free communication weekend about once a month on average though that you can take advantage of. I still recommend signing up to see what type of people are online in your area 🙂

  • Hannah says:

    Hey Amy these prices seem reasonable for eHarmony. What do you recommend in terms of subscription length?

    • Hey Hannah,

      I think that the cheapest deal is the 12-month subscription to eHarmony overall. It is about the same price anyways as the 3-month subscription and also this way you will give yourself a better chance of meeting that special person as well. In three months time it is possible but it might need a little more time than this. Hope this helps!

  • Paul says:

    I used your link to e-harmony for their premium plan, but they do not seem to know anything about these rates when I get to their payment window. When speaking with customer service, I get mixed responses, everything from it works only through your link, which I used to, we do not guarantee prices that other people post. Can I assume you got these prices from e-harmony and it is a special deal for your sponsored site giving the review. Any ideas as to why the best price they offer for premium is $29.95 per month

    • Hey paul, that is very interesting I do now know why you are seeing the prices that you are seeing to be honest. That is super weird and I know that the prices change from time to time but that is much more than what I see when I go on the eHarmony site from my link.

  • Gerry says:

    I signed up for a 3 month plan a couple of days ago. I logged in and got a bunch of pictures but I cannot message them or receive messages. I am not even receiving any e mails from e harmony. What gives? They charged 29.95 on my credit card.

    • This seems like an error that either your computer is having or maybe the site. I have never heard of anyone having this problem with eHarmony before. I would suggest calling their customer support and they should be able to help with that right away. Here is the support number: (844) 544-3173. I hope it all gets settled so that you can start with the excellent service.
