I’m going to share how a free browser extension may have saved my college career.
One night, I was in my dorm room studying with my roommate. It was finals week, we’d been cramming all night, but we hadn't eaten anything all day. So I turned to my go-to undergrad cuisine — ramen noodles. But, I was soon reminded that I ate the last pack of noodles the night before.
It was five past midnight, so every restaurant nearby was already closed. My best option at this point was to order a pizza. So I pulled up Papa John's on my computer and started to order a Large Pepperoni Pizza for the both of us. As soon as I hit checkout, a red message flashed across my screen: Your payment method was declined.
I began to panic. “Didn't I have at least 18 bucks in my bank account?” I started opening tabs to look for a coupon code that worked. Then my roommate told me about an app that finds coupon codes for you, called Honey.
Honey is actually a free browser extension that finds and applies the best discount codes to your cart. I went to their site, it seemed legit, so I installed it to my Google Chrome browser in two clicks and hoped for the best.

To my surprise, Honey found a coupon code I didn't know about, and saved me more than $4 on my order – enough to cover our food AND give the delivery guy a modest tip.
Still amazed, I checked joinhoney.com to find out what other features the app had.

I learned that Honey also has a rewards program called Honey Gold that allows you to earn gift cards when you shop at participating stores. The best part is that you don’t have to change the way you shop to earn cashback.
Honey also has a feature called Droplist, that lets you know as soon as the price on an item you want drops. And, it works at thousands of popular sites like Amazon, Macy's, & Target (with more added every week).
If you want to make sure you're getting the best deal every time you order pizza from Papa John's, Dominos, or any other pizza chain, click the button below to add Honey and start saving today!
