A few years ago, a couple of friends realized that even though they bought virtually everthing online, there was a major lack of marketplace transparency. Like many people, they were tired of getting ripped off, having to google for promos, and wasting time testing (often expired) codes at checkout. So they made Honey, a browser add-on that auotmatically finds and applies the Internet's best deals right to your cart.
This is how easy it was to save $62 on J.Crew:
$62.55 saved? Not bad, considering it took zero effort.
Today, Honey has grown to over 10 million users, and has saved its members over $800 million! With 90,000 reviews and a 5-star rating on the Google Chrome store, plus mentions in Time, Forbes, and The New York Times, the company has quickly expanded from two friends to 150 passionate employees in downtown Los Angeles.
So how does it work? 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.
