Whether you’ve been on Coffee Meets Bagel for three days or three months, chances are pretty high that you’ve seen us talk about beans. But do you know how to use them to their full potential?
We’ll give you the full rundown. But first, let’s cover the basic question: What exactly are beans? Simply put, they’re our in-app currency that you can use to unlock special features. Here’s a few ways they can give you a helping hand.
Everything you can do with beans
Get up to 5x the views. Plus likes that get shown sooner with a little help from Boost. Pick one up by tapping your profile icon in the top left corner, then “Boost me.”
Match in more ways. Suggested is great, but sometimes you might want to explore outside of the potential matches we picked out for you. You can send likes to people who catch your eye in Discover using beans.
Be shown first. When you run into a popular person on the app, you don’t want your like to get stuck behind a long queue. Use beans to buy Skip the Line, which sends flowers with your like and makes sure you get shown first.
Rekindle a convo. Maybe life got in the way and a chat dwindled away, or you just needed some time away from dating. Regardless of the reason, sometimes a chat deserves a second chance. Use beans on Reopen Chat to pick up where you left off.
So, that’s the inside scoop on beans! Now that you’re a total pro, you can let beans do some of the hard dating work for you. If you’re ever curious about how many you have, look for a beans icon in the top right corner of the Profile Me section – they’ll be a counter there. Find yourself wanting more beans?
