What is the real price of a Meetic subscription? (Proofs Inside)
The minimum price of Meetic is of 9.99€ per month, based on a 6-month commitment. At this price, you are committed for 6 months, with tacit renewal, if you do not click on the unsubscribe in the meantime. In addition, Meetic offers packages for shorter durations, but you will have to pay full price, up to €39.99, if you decide to take advantage of the unlimited « zen » option.

Answers to questions about Meetic.fr offers
Our response to the various questions regularly asked about bons-plans to subscribe:
Is there a 3 day free trial on Meetic?
In the past, Meetic has proposed free periods 3 days of affiliates, in order to encourage people to test the site, and then possibly subscribe. Nevertheless, it seems to have stopped this business practice a few years ago, since we have not recently found traces of a 3-day free trial period.
Meetic offers discount codes?
To our knowledge, Meetic does not offers no discount code. At least, at the time of this writing. This is not their strategy. This consists of offering a free registration for everyone, a package with few services at a low price (from 9.99€), and then to charge more, if you want to benefit from more options.
Does Meetic make offers on private sales?
To consult Vente-Privée very regularly, I have unfortunately never seen an offer of Meetic, DisonsDemain or Affiny on Vente-Privée. The site favored the fact of lowering the monthly rates, from 9.99€ per month, whereas they were previously from 29.9€ per month. The goal being to reward subscribers who are looking to register directly, versus those who are waiting for a good offer to register. Indeed, they know that in this situation, singles will wait for a “Vente-Privée Meetic” offer to register, which would reduce the flow of full rate subscriptions.
Does Meetic offer promotions or discounts?
The answer is yes ! But you need to have a member account for that. That is to say that at certain times of the year, Meetic offers promotions to registered members, but who are not paying subscribers, in order to motivate them to switch to the blue card. To take advantage of it, you must create an account (here for free), fill in his email address correctly, and wait to receive an email with a proposal for a reduction on his subscription.
