How beans work
Beans help you unlock special features on Coffee Meets Bagel. You can always pick some up in the Bean Shop, but there are plenty of ways to earn them, too 🌟
Your dating journey on CMB is sure to be full of little victories – and we want to help you celebrate them. For every new milestone you meet, we’ll add some beans to your wallet.
We always want to be sure we’re helping you celebrate little wins that will help you land more great dates overall – so milestones may change based on our latest research from CMB Date Labs 👩🔬️. Below are a few examples.
Some milestones are available only once during your journey. For example, you may be awarded beans the first time you send a like in Suggested, or the first time you start a Discover Search.
🙋 Matchmaker tip: To get all of your one-time milestones, be sure to explore the app and try new things. You never know what you might find.
Others milestones are available daily. Meeting these daily milestones won’t only get you more beans in your wallet – it’s likely to make you a better dater, too. One example of a daily milestone that could earn you beans is simply signing into the app. You might find that getting liked often (a sign of having made a stellar profile), or responding to a chat swiftly could earn you some beans as well.
🙋 Matchmaker tip: Your best bet for daily milestones? Firstly, follow the Better Bagel Rule: Treat bagels the way you’d like to be treated. Secondly, pay attention to what you’re awarded beans for, and try repeating that action the next day.
Unlocking features with beans
Earlier, we mentioned you can trade beans in to unlock a slew of special features. Available features may change based on eligibility. Here are a few you could unlock:
💜 Discover Likes: Head to Discover to like bagels beyond our daily suggestions.
🚀 Boost: Have your profile boosted to get seen by up to 40 more bagels.
💌 Reopen Chat: Have a conversation worth rekindling? Use Reopen Chat to, well, you know, reopen a chat that’s expired.
The Bean Shop
It always feels good to earn beans. But if you’re ever in a pinch for time, the Bean Shop is the place to be. If you find yourself in the Bean Shop often, consider upgrading to Premium. Subscribers get a hefty discount on beans – as well as unlimited access to a variety of features to help you go on better dates faster 😍
