Who said dating apps don’t pay off?
Your success at finding love can now be cashed in for prizes, including a “spying vibrator.”
Hinge, which pins itself as the “dating app for relationship seekers,” is running a weeklong online promotion rewarding members who hit certain dating milestones, like having their first sleepover, becoming exclusive, celebrating a birthday, or getting a dog. Each of those moments comes with a corresponding gift.
You’re in luck if you’ve hit the honeymoon phase, not because you’ve found true love and whatnot, but because those couples will receive a $200 vibrator. That sounds like a great prize if you don’t mind that Standard Innovation, the folks who make the We-Sync vibrator, just settled a $3.75 million lawsuit alleging that its “spying vibrator” was collecting data from users.
Other giveaway items include a Hinge onesie for couples who had a baby, an electric toothbrush for becoming exclusive, and birthstone studs as a birthday present. The value of the rewards range anywhere from $50 to $200.
To redeem the rewards, just go to Hinge’s “Milestone Marker” site, answer a few questions, and show you and your partner’s social media accounts to the app. A spokesperson at Hinge told the Verge it will verify the date people met on the app and take their word for how far along their relationship is.
