I want to start this off by saving that online shopping is my forte. I love shopping in store, but shopping online is way more convenient. I can browse for as long as I want (without the bf complaining about it 😜,) I don’t have to get out of bed, and I find the absolute best deals. There are quite a few ways that I save money while shopping, but I recently discovered the best and easiest way to do it, and it’s all at a push of a button.
One word, Honey. You may have heard of it if you frequent YouTube, like I do, and even though YouTubers have been promoting Honey for a while now, I didn’t decide to try it until about a month ago. I wasn’t sure if I could trust the hype around Honey, but I figured I had nothing to lose since it is completely free to use and I didn’t even have to make an account (anybody else hate creating accounts for what seems like everything?) My favorite part about using Honey is that it simplifies a process that I used to do manually. Honey eliminates the process of searching for coupon codes online and then trying each code individually to see if it works.
What is Honey?
Taken directly from their website, “Honey is a free browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout for over 30,000 shopping sites.” If you sign up for an account, you can also earn Honey Gold, which works just like any other cash back program. You also receive 500 Gold, which is equal to $5 when you refer a friend and they make their first eligible purchase. Honey Gold can be redeemed in the form of a gift card that you can use at stores such as Amazon, Target, Nordstrom, and Sephora. Click here for my referral if you’re interested in adding Honey to your browser and trying to help a sister out 😉. This post isn’t sponsored by the way, I just love Honey.
Is Honey free?
Yes! Honey is 100% free!
How much money can I save using Honey?
It all depends on the available coupon codes for the company you are shopping at and what is in your cart. As you can see below, I saved $101.25 on my J.Crew order. I saved about $20 on my first purchase at Forever 21 with Honey, which is when I got hooked.
How do I use Honey?
Basically, you install Honey onto your favorite browser. Then when you are shopping, you can either click on the Honey browser extension, or it will come up on it’s own and ask if you would like to apply coupons. Once you click “Apply coupons,” Honey will automatically test every available coupon to find you the best deal, and apply it for you within seconds. The documented the process is below:
