Automatically Find Online Coupons with Honey
Christmas is now less than two weeks away, which means it is officially crunch time for shopping. With the savings of Black Friday and Cyber Monday gone, those with online shopping to do now have to scramble to find the best deal for an iPad Mini or a Kindle Fire. But if you’ve procrastinated on shopping until now, there is still a way to help get the lowest prices possible on Christmas gifts this year, and it’s called Honey.
Honey is an extension for the Chrome browser designed to help you save money by scouring the internet for coupons for any particular item you find while shopping online. It works by adding a new button labelled “Find Savings” to hundreds of online retailing sites like Amazon, Best Buy, Bannana Republic, CVS, Kohls, Hotels.com, ThinkGeek, Macy’s and Newegg.
After adding an item to your cart and proceeding to the check out area, the “Find Savings” button appears, and by pressing it, Honey will then find any applicable coupons for that site or item in order to get you the best deal possible. Any valid coupon codes found for items in your shopping cart, which occasionally can be quite a few for just one item, are then automatically applied to your order.
No subscription or registration is required to install Honey, and while some technical logging occurs through Google Analytics, the company promises that personal information is only used to improve honey and won’t be shared with anyone without a user’s explicit consent. As a result, Honey is both safe and free to use.
So if you’re like me and somehow managed to sleep through this year’s Black Friday savings and are now feeling the Holiday Squeeze, give Honey a try and see just how much money you can save on gifts bought online this year.
