eHarmony is one of the biggest online dating sites in the UK, personally I liked the breadth of characters that were on the site, it helped me look past my usual ‘type’ and helped me experience some good (and bad) and unique dates.
The site was actually founded in USA in 2000, so its grown massively and is now a global dating platform and has gone on to become a world leader in the dating space.
eHarmony has a reported database of over 2 million users in the UK which is a great advert for them, and like I said is great for meeting an array of people but access to the site is going to cost you as eHarmony is not a free dating site.
Before looking at the price, you can find my best eHarmony Discounts to help save you some cash money, when joining the site.
Below we have outlined the cost to join eHarmony, along with a short review (read more real eHarmony reviews here) and any available discount codes for joining eHarmony to help make your dating experience as affordable as possible! -> ppfftt who said ‘my love don’t cost a thing!’
How Much Does it Cost to Join eHarmony?
Here is a quick reference to the cost of eHarmony and the different membership packages they provide.
NOTE: eHarmony releases different pricing at different times of the year so you might find that the 3 month or 24 month packages aren’t available at certain points in the year – the costs change too, so they may vary between accounts.
eHarmony Basic Membership Costs
|Price Per Month||Duration||Savings||Total Cost|
*saving are compared to £44.95 monthly payments
eHarmony Total Connect Membership Costs
|Price Per Month||Duration||Savings||Total Cost|
*Note you can choose between paying in 1 or 3 payments split evenly across your membership for both the 12 month and the 24 months.
The 1 month, 3 month & 6 month eHarmony memberships must be paid in full as a one off payment.
Once you have signed up to a membership package, eHarmony will ‘helpfully’ automatically renew your membership 24 hours before it is due to expire – for this reason, we recommend you deselect the auto renew option.
Note – by deselecting auto renew, you will be required to pay the normal rates which new members must pay, although every time we have checked this, the prices are the same anyway – clever marketing ploy!

Is there an eHarmony Free Trial?
Update: The eHarmony.co.uk Free Trial mentioned below stopped working on the 30th March 2016 and will not work – please add your email address to my mailing list and hit the green button to be alerted when the code is live again, which we expect to be soon.
One of the most common questions I get asked is “can I get an eHarmony free trial?” I hated telling people No all the time, so I wanted to put some work in and see if I could provide something lovely for the folks who visit my humble little site.
I have recently been in talks with eHarmony and for a limited period I can offer my users an exclusive eHarmony free trial code for a 2 week period.
Joining eHarmony & Using an eHarmony Promotional Code
So you have decided to take the plunge and join eHarmony – good for you, no one ever got anywhere in life by doing nothing. Like we always say here, you get out of Online Dating exactly what you put into it – its important to have the right frame of mind aswell.
So after clicking the ‘create an account’ button you will be taken through a host of questions, I timed myself and it took me 17 minutes and 32 seconds – precise huh!? The screen will look something like this…
Followed by questions popping up on the same screen – they have obviously thought about the user interfaced as its quite beautiful and the questions are laid out in an uninstructive manner.
Once completed, you will hit the PAYMENT page – now if you don’t want to pay now, your only option is to go back to eHarmony.com and login again, this will take you to your new personal profile page and you can always pay later!
If we have been kind enough to find you a promotional code, you will want to enter it at the payment page, as highlighted above.
If you fancy taking out a single month plan (although eHarmony do advise against it, as love takes at least 3 months) then you will need to click the ever visible ‘full priced option’ link, also highlighted above! Payment is fairly quick and easy, I used paypal and the wonder of the 21st century is that it took me 2 minutes and I didn’t need to fumble around trying to find my security code which had been rubbed off my 5 year old bank card!!

Tips & Money Saving Tricks
- Definitely follow eHarmony on Facebook and Twitter as they regularly launch competitions and incentives through their social channels.
- As mentioned above, eHarmony change their membership offerings on a regular basis. You will find during more popular spells (ie New year, Valentines) that the 24 month plan wont be available but the 3 month plan will be and visa versa during slower months. If you want either the 3 or 24 month plan, but it isn’t being shown – drop me an email and I’ll try and get you access.
eHarmony Free communication Weekends
eHarmony are famous for their ‘Free Communication Weekends’ these are pretty much what they sound like. You use eHarmony’s Guided communication to speak to any of your matches for absolutely free, you don’t need to add card details, just sign up take the questionnaire and get communicating! You wont be able to see any pictures of your matches, but once you have completed the guided communication you are free to email your matches.

We expect the next free communication weekend to be on the 30th Sept – 4th Oct 2016.
Visit our eHarmony free weekend page for more information.
eHarmony Reviews UK
As this page is meant to serve you some real eHarmony reviews, you probably want the nitty gritty. So below I have put together my honest review, broken down into sections and also included reviews from real users to help you decide on where to spend your dating ££.
How Many People are on eHarmony?
This is a pretty easy one to start with, eHarmony claim to have 4 million UK users with an estimated 1200 new members a day. We obviously cant prove this, but it is widely reported. The ratio of males to females is slightly skewed, with females a little more dominate in their database. Most users are in the age bracket of 25-45 but both the younger and older groups have seen a significant rise in recent years.
Verdict: One of the biggest pool of users, which is a good thing in my book. Variety is the spice of life and all that!
Quality of eHarmony Matches
Having been signed up to ‘nearly’ every dating site available in the UK, I’ve been there, done that and pretty much dated (or at least spoken to) every type of person you can imagine. One major gripe that I had with most dating sites was the amount of random messages I received (I’m no Beyonce, and it got boring pretty quick) a lot of them were spammy and some were…..damn right weird!
I guess as eHarmony is one of the more upscale dating sites (in that it actually costs something) the users feel less like time wasters. This can be a negative as I did go through dry spells where I thought I was going to die single, but the people I spoke to and the ones whom reached out to me seemed more legit and after receiving a cockload of penis pictures, I was more than happy to slim down my inbox.
I’ve seen and read a lot of gripes about matches being too far away, I never had this issue but it could be because I lived in London at the time and I’ve also travelled around a bit, so each place has offered something new. All I can say is, if you are prepared to pay for dating, I would broaden your horizons a bit and look outside your postcode.
Verdict: eHarmony send you your matches, this eliminates the need to trawl through profiles. They do a great job of only selecting the best matches for you!
I guess this might not be a game changer for most people but its always nice to have a friendly voice if you have any problems. I’ve only needed to talk to a member of staff there once (long story about reporting a user who thought I was someone else and wouldn’t leave me alone) but they were really helpful then. With all paid dating sites, there are a few details you need to know before signing up
E.g. no matter which paid dating site you use, you must un-check the ‘auto renew’ payment option, they all have this annoying habit!
eHarmony, like Match.com have a great help section on their site if you have any questions, plus we are also building our own eHarmony FAQ section from questions I’ve received from you lovely lot.In general if you need to speak to someone the best bet is to go to their contact page and talk to them via live chat or give them a call on 0800 028 0308. Cant get through? Email me and I’ll see if I can help.
Verdict: With my limited experience, eHarmony seem to have a great customer service team as well as a good online presence to help you in your hour of need.
eHarmony Mobile App
Overall I feel that eHarmony is definitely one of the best dating sites to use in the UK if you are looking for a real relationship. The amount of time they have spent working on a matching algorithm and the amount of time you invest in filling out your profile makes eHarmony a commitment which I guess reflects on the people that join and actively use the site and app.
It can be expensive, especially if you are joining for a short period. Our advice is to try a free communication weekend to see how you get on, you should get a feel for the site if you block out a day or a few evenings to really use the features during the free weekend. To me, the price really came second to finding someone, if you meet that someone special, its more than worth the cost and hopefully you wont have to kiss THAT many frogs! Good luck!
