I love cooking and exploring new dishes, but the cost of groceries and ordering food on the regular can add up, so I'm always on the lookout for ways to cut costs. Here's a super neat trick for saving money on not just food, but pretty much anything you buy online.
You might've already heard about Honey, the browser add-on that automatically finds and applies coupon codes to your online purchases. What some people don’t realize is that it works on food sites too. I’ve used it on HelloFresh, Thrive, Jet, GrubHub, Yelp, Doordash, and Pizza Hut (for those lazy nights), just to name a few.
Here’s how it works:
Add Honey to your browser (it's free and takes 2 seconds). Once that's done, the Honey icon lives in the top right corner of your toolbar. Anytime you're on a supported online store, the little "h" button will light up if it finds discounts. Then when you're ready to checkout, press the Honey button and the app will automatically scan the items in your cart, test every working coupon code, and apply the best deal to your cart – all in a matter of seconds.
This is how easy it was for me to save $6.24 on groceries:
$6.24 saved? Not bad, considering it took zero effort.
Once you have this app, the money-saving possibilities are endless. You can find savings on Amazon, or even double stack discounts on Groupon. For instance, Amazon was having a sale on the Instant Pot, and on top of that, Honey found an extra $11.02 in savings!
You’ll be surprised how often it can find discounts, and how your savings add up over time. Do yourself a favor and add it to your browser now so that the next time you're shopping online, you'll be ready to go.
