How is the Honey Smart Shopping Assistant App different from the Honey Extension?

What's the difference between our browser extension and mobile app?

We get asked that question often. They’re both parts of the Honey experience. Both save you time and money. They just do it a little differently.

For starters, the Honey extension works on your web browser - Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge, or Opera. Whenever you’re shopping on one of the 40,000+ sites that Honey works on, we’ll pop up on the site to find and apply coupons. Amazing, right?

Now, on to the app. Imagine taking millions of products from your favorite sites, throwing in 1,000s of coupons codes, adding the price intelligence of Honey’s community for deal notifications, and bringing them all together in one easy-to-shop destination. That’s the basis of the app. Also amazing, right?

Think of it this way. The extension goes with you to different stores whenever you’re on your computer. The app brings different stores to you in a single app whenever you’re on your phone. It even gives you the convenience of a single cart (even if your items are from different stores). 

So, the extension goes with you. The app brings everything to you.

Do coupons work differently?

Since the app and extension work differently, so do the coupons. 

As we mentioned, the extension goes with you to different shopping sites on your computer. So the coupons found window pop-ups when you’re on the site’s checkout page. The extension then applies the best code to the cart total (as most coupons are storewide).

When you shop a store in the app, you’ll see a bar at the bottom of the in-app webview browser that lets you view and copy coupons for the store you’re shopping. From there, you can easily copy and paste codes without having to do endless Google searches and dozens of link clicks. 

For both the app and extension, you'll have access to the same comprehensive list of coupons so you can shop with confidence. 

What about Amazon?

While the extension works on Amazon, the app is focused on bringing you items and sales you won’t find on Amazon. Although the app supports 400+ sites, currently Amazon isn’t one of them. Note that the app will still notify you when prices drop on Amazon items you’ve saved to your Droplist.

Does Droplist work on both the app and extension?

You’ll be happy to know that Droplist works on both platforms.

What about Honey Gold?

You can earn Honey Gold on both the app and extension. In the app, you’ll see the Gold rewards rate in the bottom bar of the in-app webview. You’ll see pending and earned Gold rewards in the same place for app and extension purchases. View your pending gold in your Account Overview.

How do they work together?

The app and extension were meant to be different. One is geared for the best shopping experience on your phone while the other is meant for the best experience on your computer.

We’re always working on both to save you even more time and money. But between the app and extension, you’ll be covered whenever and however you shop.
