Q. What is Honey?
A. Honey is a browser plugin that makes sure you are getting the best possible deal when you shop online. It places a non-intrusive "Find savings" button in the checkout page at hundreds of online shops. Simply click this button and Honey will automatically find and apply the coupons for you.
Q. How does it work?
A. Honey constantly monitors the web for new promotions and coupon codes. When you click the "Find savings" button, Honey checks coupons that have worked for other people.
Q. What browsers do you support?
A. Honey currently works on Chrome and Firefox. Support for other browsers is coming soon. To vote for your favorite and add your name to the waiting list, click here.
Q. Do I need to register an account?
A. No, you don't need to register to use Honey.
Q. I installed Honey but there's no "Find savings" button when I am checking out!
A. If you can't find the Honey button when you are checking out, it probably means we don't support the site yet. Let us know which stores you love, and we'll add them. If the store is in our list of supported sites and you still don't see the Honey button you may be looking at the wrong page. On Amazon, the button appears on the final page of checkout where your final price is displayed, not on prior pages. If you still need help finding it, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to assist.
Q. Trouble installing?
A. Some users have reported getting a message like: Package is invalid: 'CRX_MAGIC_NUMBER_INVALID'

Q. How do you make money?
A. Currently we make money two ways: 1) when you are shopping and click the 'Find Savings' button we will let you know if there are any cheap gift cards available from our partners. If you click through and buy one, we earn a small commission. 2) after installing Honey, if you click through to try out Honey we may include an affiliate code in the link. If you buy something (usually in the next 24 hours) we make make a small affiliate commission. In the future we may make money through affiliate programs similar to coupon and rebate sites or through other innovative programs that help you save even more time and money. When we start to make money we will be careful not to interfere with any other affiliate or cash back programs you may be using and will try to do so in a way that gets you even better prices without annoying you.
