In my field of work, I come across a LOT of “brand X will save you so much money, you just have to try it” kind of promotions, and honestly, I get sick of it.
I’m all about getting a great deal, but I don’t have time to try fifty different apps while I’m doing it!
So when Honey popped onto the scene, I was all set to ignore it. In fact, I probably scrolled past at least 1-2 Facebook posts about it per day. The marketing team must not give up that easily….and as much as I hate admitting this, the constant pressure worked.
I signed up.
However, I promised myself if any part of the process took too long to use, I was done. Yep—I’m tough to impress!
Turns out, I was so wrong. Honey is a dream come true, and now I’m kicking myself for not installing it sooner.
This app worked quickly and quietly in the background finding me the best coupon code for things I was already buying. The first time I put it to work, I saved $7 on a $40 shopping cart—not bad at all!
Now that I’ve been using Honey for a couple of weeks, I couldn’t stay silent on it any longer. I just had to share my Honey app review! You guys—I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a money saving tool since my Ibotta app review.
How Honey Works (A Honey App Review)
Before Honey came along, I spent about 5-10 minutes searching for coupon codes on sites like Retail Me Not or Google. It took extra time, and I didn’t always find a code that worked. Super frustrating!
On the other hand, Honey lets you streamline this whole coupon-searching process with ONE click.
Instead of trying different coupon codes yourself, this downloadable plugin can be installed on your Chrome web browser. Whenever you’re ready to check out, you click ONE button to let Honey work it’s magic and find coupon codes for you.
Here’s an example:
I found my new favorite sweater at Kohl’s and wanted to buy another color. So I added the Heather Gray option to my shopping cart.
When I view my cart, Honey popped up and asked if I wanted to apply any coupon codes.
Um, yes please!
Because Honey has all the updated codes right in its system, I can test them ALL in less than 30 seconds. No more copying and pasting 15 different coupon codes only to find out none of them work.
Well, look at that. Honey found almost $6 in savings! And all I did was click one button.
Honey automatically applies that coupon code to my shopping cart, and now I can check out with the satisfaction of saving a few extra dollars. Sweet!
Two Must-Try Features:
1. Another cool perk with Honey is the price drop feature. Just add the item you want to your Droplist and Honey will send a notification if that item drops below a certain price.
You can even specify how many days you want Honey to track as well as the discount percentage.
2. Honey Gold, an exclusive rewards program, gives members a chance to activate an extra bonus on purchases of all kinds of items. This bonus is a random percentage and ends up in your account as Honey Gold. You can then redeem Honey Gold for gift cards from your favorite stores.
So even if no coupon code is available through Honey, there’s still the option to activate Honey Gold!
What to do Next
Now that you’re absolutely convinced you need Honey in your life, here’s what you need to do next:
- Sign up for a FREE Honey account.
- Install the Honey Chrome extension on your web browser or download the mobile app so you never miss a coupon code. (FYI: With the mobile app, you need to shop inside the app first).
- Shop like you normally do and find extra savings. Woohoo!!
Honey is definitely a no-brainer. You’ll save time searching for coupon codes, and save money with the click of a button. I know you’re gonna love it just as much as I do!
