How does Honey work on Amazon?
In addition to finding coupon codes at check out, Honey also offers three useful tools that will help save on Amazon purchases:
When you're looking at a product on Amazon, there are multiple options available in the marketplace. Various sellers frequently sell the same item for less than Amazon does, which may not be the default option you see when you're on Amazon. With Best-Price Detection enabled, Honey can potentially find a better price for you. Honey only compares competing offers for the exact product you're viewing -- same size, color, and features.
Price History tracks price changes for items on Amazon for 30, 60, or 120 days. Using crowdsourcing help from other members, Honey can tell you when and where members have seen price fluctuations on a specific item in a certain time period.
