The other day, while watching an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker, I thought to myself, “How much does Millionaire Matchmaker cost?” I was curious how much those in the Millionaire Matchmaker club actually paid for their services. While I figured it cost a lot (hey, they’re millionaires), I was still floored by the actual numbers.
For my research I went to Google and typed in a simple query about how much Patti Stanger charges for her millionaire match making services. I was promptly lead to the club’s website, where I moseyed around until I found the actual costs. The numbers I’m about to give you were last updated April 2010 and, according to the Millionaire Matchmaker costs portion of the website, reflect current prices.
For a platinum base membership (the most basic membership for the Millionaire Matchmaker club) costs $45,000 per year. While that includes unlimited dating throughout the US and Canada, a date coaching session and a few other 1 hour sessions, that’s a lot of dough to hand over for a date.
Here’s the zinger. That number doesn’t reflect working with Patti Stanger herself. Nope, to have Patty as your personal matchmaker, you need to fork over an additional $35,000 (minimum, according to the Millionaire Matchmaker site).
Total Minimum Cost: $80,000 per year.
If you want to, you can hire Destin Pfaff or Rachel Federoff, Millionaire Matcher’s senior staff members for an additional $15,000. That would make your total $60,000 per year.
Here’s where Millionaire Matchmaker costs gets really good (or is that really expensive?). If you desire a VIP membership, you’re looking at a minimum of $150,000 to $200,000 per year. Yes, per year. Meanwhile, in Africa…
And if spending nearly a quarter million dollars for a dating service still isn’t high baller enough for you, have no fear. You can tack on another 30 grand to be put on “priority status.” I’m not making this up, folks. The costs of the Millionaire Matchmaker club are available in plain site for everyone on the official website.
For those who are a little overwhelmed for the prices but still desire help from Patti Stanger at Millionaire Matchmaker, you may be in luck.
You can schedule a one on one consultation with her without the official membership. It’s a drop in the bucket at a mere $5000 per hour. But, if you want to save some more money, speak with her on the phone for only $2000 an hour. Senior staff members Destin and Rachel only cost $1000 per hour in person and $700 per hour via phone.
