You matched with your dream partner in Bumble, but she hasn’t sent you the first message or he didn’t reply back to your first message yet and now you are afraid that the match will disappear? Don’t worry, there is a solution for you. It is called Bumble Daily Extend.

In this blog post, we are going to go over everything related to Bumble Extend. What is it, how can you use it, how much does it cost, whether it is worth buying Bumble Boost for it and many more.

At the end of this Bumble premium feature tutorial, you will also find a comprehensive FAQ on all possible Bumble Extend related questions.

What is Bumble Daily Extend?

Bumble Extend

Bumble Daily Extend is a Bumble feature that lets you extend the countdown timer an additional 24 hours so that a profile has 24 more hours to send the first message, a.k.a. “make the first move”.

As you most likely know, women have 24 hours to make the first move on Bumble. If they don’t send a message in the first 24 hours on Bumble, the match disappears.

With Bumble Daily Extend you can extend this first move period with an additional 24 hours. Bumble Daily Extend can be used by both men and women, but it makes more sense to guys, as girls just have to send a “Hi” as the first message to make the first move.

Every user has access to one free Bumble Daily Extend, but you have to be a Bumble Boost subscriber to use Extend for an unlimited number of times.

How to extend matches on Bumble and how does it work?

It is very easy to activate a Bumble Daily Extend:

  1. Go to the match you would like to Extend and tap on it
  2. Tap on Daily Extend to add 24 hours to the timer.

Once you extend a match, the person whose profile has been extended will get a notification that you have extended his or her profile.

Bumble Daily Extend for free

You can use 1 Bumble Daily Extend per day for free. If you want to use more, you have to get Bumble Boost for it. There is no other way to get Bumble Extend for free.

Bumble Daily Extend vs Unlimited Extend

How much does Bumble Extend cost?

Bumble Extend can’t be purchased separately for Bumble Coins, you have to have a Bumble Boost subscription to be able to use an unlimited number of Bumble Extends.

You can subscribe for Bumble Boost for different periods, for just a week or to a lifetime. Obviously, you get a better monthly price if you subscribe for a longer period.

Currently, the standard US pricing of Bumble Boost is the following:

  • Weekly Subscription: 8.99 USD per week
  • Monthly Subscription: 24.99 USD per month
  • 3-Month Subscription: 49.99 USD every 3 months
  • Lifetime Subscription: 139.99 USD (one-time payment)

When should you use Bumble Extend?

If you have unlimited Extend because you are a Bumble Boost subscriber, we suggest you to use Bumble Extend always. It is a great way to increase your chances for getting an opening message from the girl.

If you can, always wait until the last minutes of the first 24 hour period, so the profile will have the most time to send you the first Bumble message.

Is it worth using Bumble Extend – does it work?

There are three possible scenarios when you have used a Bumble Extend:

  1. The profile you have used Bumble Extend on, didn’t see that you had a match with but didn’t even see the Extend. No effects, but no negative effects whatsoever
  2. She finds it cringeworthy that you used Extend and deliberately doesn’t send you a message in the Extend period
  3. Your match hasn’t seen that you matched with her but now because of the Extend sends you an opening message and now you have a chance to message her. Extend made its magic.

So basically, there is no real downside of using Bumble Extend. You can only win with it and get more conversations starting up, so the answer to the original question is: yes, it is definitely worth using Bumble Extend.
