Like millions of people, I buy almost everything on Amazon. With an enormous selection and cheap prices, its no wonder that it’s one of the top places to buy home goods online. Unfortunately, Amazon's vast selection also creates a disadvantage: the massive marketplace usually makes comparing prices and finding the best possible deal completely chaotic and frustrating.
I recently moved into my new home, and I was determined to achieve Pinterest-worthy décor without breaking the bank. And guess what: I actually found a way.
You might've already heard about Honey, the browser app that automatically finds and applies coupon codes to your online purchases. What some people don’t realize is that it has some really useful Amazon features. And yes, it even works with Prime.
Here’s how it works:
When you shop on Amazon, Honey will scan the marketplace to make sure you're truly seeing the lowest price available. In seconds, Honey calculates item price, sales tax, shipping costs, seller rating, and Prime status. If it finds a better deal, a little orange tag will show you how much you can save. In the case of this side table, Honey was able to find me $72.59 in savings, and all I had to do was click.
This is how easy it was for me to save $17.50 on a new Keurig, simply by going with another Amazon seller:
2 seconds to save $17.50, and I still get my beloved 2-day shipping and fulfillment by Amazon. Same coffee maker, same shipping, just cheaper!
Sometimes the displayed price is actually the lowest price, and in which case, Honey tells you. Either way, you’ll feel confident knowing you didn’t get ripped off.
Over time, your savings can seriously add up, and there's literally no reason not to have this app – it's free, stays out of your way, and only shows up when it can save you money. Genius, right?
