These days, all our purchases are pretty much made online. Why put on shoes and go down to the store when you could just buy what you need from the comfort of your couch (and more importantly, 5 feet away from the fridge)? No lines, no crowds, no hassle. If you can relate, you're going to love this shopping hack. Like a guardian angel for your wallet, it'll make sure you're getting the best deals online and prevent you from wasting your hard-earned cash.
The secret? Honey.
If you don't already know, Honey is a free browser app that automatically scans the Internet for every working coupon code while you're shopping online. Then at checkout, it magically applies the best deal to your cart!
This is how easy it was for me to save $62 on J.Crew:
$62.55 saved? Not bad, considering it took zero effort.
Here's how it works: First, add Honey to your browser for free. You'll see a little "h" button appear in your toolbar.
When you're about to buy something online, you literally just click that button and the total price instantly drops if Honey finds a deal for you. It's really that easy.
Sometimes, Honey will even find exclusive promo codes that aren’t normally available to the public. And here's a pro tip: this is especially useful on Groupon – because who doesn't want double the savings?
Even if a store doesn't have active codes available, Honey will still give you cash back at thousands of stores – that way, you save money no matter what. You can use this handy tool at all your favorite stores like Target, JCrew, Macy's, Urban Outfitters, Best Buy, Nike, and even Amazon.
Do yourself a favor and get it now so the next time you're buying online, you're ready to go. Your future self will thank you.
