These days, all our electronic 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 like this shopping trick— it'll get you the best deals online and save your hard-earned cash.
The secret? Honey.
If you haven't already heard of Honey, it's a free browser extension that automatically finds, tests, and applies promo codes at checkout. With one click, Honey tests every coupon code, applying the best one to my cart. It works on thousands of sites - over 37,000 last time I checked - including all of my favorites like Target, Best Buy, Macy's, Amazon, Newegg, Overstock, and Home Depot.
Check it out in action on Best Buy. I was already getting a great deal ($30 gift card with purchase) but Honey found a code that saved me an additional $44.10!
$44 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 sites like 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 check out with confidence knowing that you're getting the best deal and not missing out on any extra savings.
Do yourself a favor and get it now so the next time you're buying online, you're ready to go.
