Please read the article:

Tinder’s basic product is free, but customers younger than 30 can pay as little as $9.99 a month to upgrade to the premium dating service. Users older than 30, meanwhile, get charged $19.99 for the same service, the ruling said.

That's pretty simple discrimination based on age. Tinder fucked up.

Their excuse was literally "but they're willing to pay more if they're older so we charged them more based on their age." As much as I hate online dating apps and old people infiltrating and tainting my fucking dating pool, Tinder did indeed fuck up. Straight up age discrimination.

The scary part was that the first court (insanely) sided with Tinder and had to be overturned. The courts are fucked at the lower levels and filled with petty idiots.

I don't see why they shouldn't be allowed to. Younger customers are more valuable and make their service more attractive. Same reason some clubs let women in free.

While I don't necessarily disagree with you, in this day in age, you better not get caught openly discriminating based on age, color, or gender.

These seems like very equatable double standards. Perhaps there is a justification for pay increase as it pertains to actually attracting paying customers.

This is a common practice and leads to a better economy.

If you ride the bus or go to the movies, you might get a discount based on your age. In fact, seniors are usually charged around rates of children. The only people who tend to get screwed over are the adults of working age.

People/businesses should be allowed to discriminate. America used to be a free country.

Agreed we need to start discriminating against niggers again.

Go right ahead, but be prepared to lose your business to one that won't discriminate.

OKCupid does it too. When I pointed it out, they banned me.

I don't see the big point. If you can't find a fuck buddy after 1 month of tinder premium then just give up on the app. No point in paying the monthly bill for like a when year.

Regular tinder only gives you like 50 swipes, I remember the good ol days when it was unlimited right out the gate.

This shit happens all the time in the mobile world. Make a good application. Release it for free then gimp fundamental functionality and try to charge people unreasonable prices to get it back

I think it was only $5 for premium when it was first introduced. Now it's $10, Its tempting to create a tinder alternative that runs on ads. We could probably make a lot of money.

Judge striking a blow for all financially disadvantaged creepy old dudes looking for a booty call.

All the creepy dudes with money are "supporting" poor college woman on seekingarrangement.com, BTW.

People over thirty are a wealthier demographic than people under thirty. They are much more willing and able to pay subscription service fees and are likely to have thousands in monthly payments already established. Its not "ageism" its market economics.

One way they could legally do this is to discount college students. It doesn't cover all young people but it's legal and a common practice
