Christian Mingle Free Trial – Sign Up Codes, Details, and Features

When it comes to dating app free trials, they come in all shapes and sizes. With Christian Mingle’s free trial, you get all the standard features you see with other apps, but you also get some messaging capabilities that are not standard (hooray).

Today, we’re going to look at three things. We’ll look at how you sign up for the Christian Mingle free trial, what features you will and will not get with the offer, and how this compares with other apps within the Christian dating space.

Before we dive in, if you’re just here to claim your free trial, we won’t hold you up. The link posted below will get you started automatically with all the bells and whistles we’re about to cover.

When it comes to using a free trial at a dating app, nothing sours the mood more than getting less than you expected. On that same token, nothing gets you more excited than seeing you get access to more than what you expected.

To help you temper and prepare your expectations properly, we’ve included some information below about what you will and won’t get with the Christian Mingle free trial.

Let’s look at a few more details about some of these features of the offer that are important for you to know.

Messaging Capabilities

One of the biggest surprises of the Christian Mingle free trial offer is that you actually get some abilities to send messages. Often, dating apps won’t let you communicate at all (outside of winks, likes, pokes, etc.) unless you upgrade to a paid account.

With this trial offer, you’ll get access to Messaging+, which is a feature that allows you to respond to messages sent to you.

To be very clear, you are NOT able to initiate conversations with any free or paid members. This means that if you stumble across a match that you like, you’re not going to be able to send them a message without upgrading your account to a paid account.

However, if a paid member stumbles across your profile and sends you a message, then you’re able to respond completely free of charge with your free trial.

While this seems like a bonus to you, it’s really done as a perk to paying members allowing them to communicate with anybody they see on the site. A lot of online dating sites don’t have this functionality which means that when you’re a paid member, you’re limited to only messaging with other paid members. You could find the perfect person, but until they have a paid account you won’t be able to talk to them. This is not the case with the Christian Mingle free trial.

Pro Tip: This means that at the very least you should be creating and filling out your profile even if you have no plans of purchasing a membership. That way, if a paid member sees you and is interested, they can message you, and you’ll be free to respond and set up a date (if you want to) without having to upgrade. Basically, Christian Mingle’s free trial allows you to be part of the action even if you never upgrade. This should be reason enough to at least check out the platform and put up a basic profile.

This all said, we did see a few reports of people only getting access to Messaging+ for a limited time and then being prompted to purchase. We can’t verify this ourselves (as we don’t send messages during our testing because that would not be kind to real users), but we did see it in a few places.

Here’s a comment from Reddit where we say a member talking about it:

Limits on the Number of Photos You Can See

When you get access to your free trial account, you’ll be able to see 100% of the matches in your area (or any area you want to search). You’ll also be able to see their complete profile with no information blacked out.

However, you will only be able to see their first/main photo. If you try to click to see their additional photos, this is what you’ll be greeted with:

While this is a bummer, there is one aspect of it that we like—privacy. Unlike Christian dating apps like Higher Bond where you can’t see profiles until you go through a verification process, Christian Mingle gives you access within a few minutes.

Again, this is great if you’re you (and not a troublemaker), but it also let’s people who may be up to no good in quickly. With this feature, they’re not able to see all of your photos without paying to upgrade (which most scammers don’t do).

Match Searching Capabilities

The free trial also allows you to look through every profile on the site including paid and free members. This means you can search and see if there are any matches that you may be interested in before you have to even think about upgrading. Online dating apps that don’t allow this scare us sometimes (not always), but ones that fully open the curtains excite us because it usually means they have a great product they’re willing to stand behind.

The Christian Mingle free trial is one that actually lasts “forever.” When you use the link we provided at the top of the page, you will be set up with a free trial account that will last until you either upgrade to a paid account or delete your profile from the site.

This means that if you weren’t planning on ever upgrading, you could create a free trial account and just sit and wait for people to message you first. Then, you could respond for free without ever opening your wallet. While we’re fans of taking control of your dating life and getting in the driver’s seat, this is an option available thanks to their generosity with this trial.

No, there is no code you have to enter. The link provided automatically gets you access to the offer.
