What are your cheapest Heroku Postgres and Heroku Data for Redis plans?

Heroku prorates all costs to the second. The price per database/month is the maximum you're charged if your database stays provisioned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week since your last billing cycle.

Before the ending of our free plans on November 28, 2022, we will introduce our new Mini data plans:

  • The Mini Heroku Postgres plan for $5/month.
  • The Mini Heroku Data for Redis plan for $3/month.

For example, if you create a Mini Postgres database and delete it after 15 days, it will cost you roughly $2.50.

Learn more about our Eco and Mini plans here.

Currently, our cheapest plans are:

The Hobby Basic plan for Heroku Postgres is available for $9/month.

The Premium-0 plan for Heroku Data for Redis is available for $15/month.

For example, if you create a Hobby Basic Postgres database and delete it after 15 days, it will cost you roughly $4.50.
