Honey Automatic Coupons – Worth The Download?
Time is money when it comes to online shopping, so when you are browsing a stores website and thinking to yourself, “Is there a coupon or promo code I can use?” No more brainpower needed when you download the app Honey. We know that you love browsing coupon websites like Retailmenot or Promocodes.com, but who isn’t annoyed when a coupon does not work and you continually click on other promo codes to find the right one.
What is the Honey App Exactly?
The Honey coupon app acts as browser extension working on most browsers including:
When you download the Honey extension and activate your account, you are now allowing the app to find coupons whenever you are on an e-commerce website. For example, you enter Kohl’s online and you are about to check out. Hit the Honey extension icon on the top right corner of your browser to let Honey do it’s magic!
What Are Some Brands That Work With Honey?
You’ll be pleased to know that Honey works aggressively through its own userbase (rewarding users to find coupons and sending it to them), along with a full team looking for exclusive coupons. Stores like:
- Domino’s Pizza
- Papa John’s
- and many more
If you don’t see a coupon work for a website, add it to the Droplist (a function within the Honey App) to be notified when there is a coupon!
How Does Honey Make Money? And is this Legal?
Yes, the Honey app is perfectly legal, safe, and easy to use. You aren’t giving any personal information like credit cards away, although you are giving your tracking cookies to Honey so that they can make money. How it works is that they have partnered up with sites like a Kohls.com through affiliate marketing. They get a commission if you successfully checkout with one of their coupon codes. They may still get commission even if a code doesn’t work, if you have clicked on their extension while browsing, and no coupons work, they still likely placed a tracking cookie in order to receive a commission. However, even still, sites like Retailmenot make money this way (with or without working coupons).
Recommend or not?
After reading this information you may be hesitant to sign up to Honey. Afterall, they may make money on coupons that do not work. But, most of the web works this way. Money, Commissions, and Coupons are given out to all sorts of websites and it’s hard to keep track. Honey makes it super easy to shop online and save big time. So yes, we recommend you join Honey and make this your primary coupon extension, although the mobile app is not out yet.
