Great question! Honey is a free service that makes it ridiculously easy to save time and money online. How, you ask? Another great question (you're good at this). Honey is a browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout on thousands of sites. But that's not all–– Honey also instantly finds better prices on Amazon and offers cash bonuses on many stores.
If you haven’t installed Honey already, the first step is to go to JoinHoney.com and do just that. We're currently supported on Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera--Microsoft Edge is on the way!
Once you have Honey installed, whenever you're on a shopping site that Honey supports, you will see the Honey icon in the top right corner of your browser turn the color orange. This means that Honey supports that store. You can click on the Honey button to see any coupons we know about for that site, just like this:
If there's a store that you'd like to shop on that we don't support yet, let us know so we can look into adding that site. You can also search for stores in our database on JoinHoney.com.
When you're on a checkout page with a promo code field, Honey will pop up and ask if you want to check for savings. Simply click the "Find Savings" button and Honey will automatically try all known coupon codes for that store (including Honey exclusives). If we find a code that works, we’ll apply the one that saves you the most money to your cart. It's true, check it out:
We scour the internet for all the best deals, but if you find a coupon out there that we don't currently have, let us know so we can share it with the community! You'll find the 'share a code' option at the bottom of the Honey extension.
Now for Amazon! Honey finds better prices on Amazon by automatically comparing the final prices (including sales tax and shipping) of every top-rated seller in the marketplace. We list the best price right on the product page, so you know right away if you're getting the best deal. If there's a better deal, we'll show you. Like this:
Honey will also let you know if you can save a lot just by waiting a little for shipping. It's good to have options–– especially if those options save you money. And don't worry, we work with Prime, too, so you can still get special Prime deals. The best part? You can easily swap the better deal into your cart with one click. It's the same Amazon you love, just better.
And as an added bonus, we also offer a literal Cash Bonus on many stores! When Honey makes a commission from the sale, we split it with you–– literally passing you the savings. Think of it as getting paid to shop. 😃
All you have to do is activate your Cash Bonus before checking out and you'll receive a surprise bonus (anywhere from 1–100% percent back from your purchase) in the form of HoneyGold.
To activate your Cash Bonus, all you gotta do is click the "Find Savings!" button. You can also browse exclusive Cash Bonus offers on our offers page. You'll know that a store supports a Cash Bonus if you see this icon next to the store's name:
Exclusions are the worst but they're out there, up to the sole discretion of the users (which means our hands are tied). After you've activated your Cash Bonus, you can check for exclusions under the projected percentage range of your bonus, found here:
By now you might be wondering "When do I get my Cash Bonus?" and also "What do I do with HoneyGold?"
After checking out, you'll see HoneyGold from that transaction in your account within 2-4 days of that transaction. Gold will pend for 45-60 days while the merchant confirms and verifies your purchase, and as soon as that's taken care of, we switch your Gold from pending to 'posted.' With G1000 posted, you can redeem a $10 Amazon gift card, and we're also in the process of adding more rewards and cash-out options, so stay tuned. When claiming cash bonuses, you can't use multiple cashback programs at a time and we recommend disabling ad-block on store checkout pages. If you think you're missing any Gold, reach out to us with the receipt from that purchase and we'll help you out!
Once again, welcome to Honey! We're so happy to have you. If you'd like to share Honey with friends, you can find your personalized referral link at JoinHoney.com/invite. When your friends sign up with your link and earn Gold on their first eligible purchase, you'll receive a G500, which translates to $5.
And, if you have any questions, just drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Happy shopping 😎
