What are Gold Rewards?
Gold Rewards is our free rewards program that lets you earn Gold points towards cash back (for US) or store gift cards on your eligible purchases. When you shop participating stores with the Honey browser extension, you can get a chance to earn points on your purchase.
Gold points are rewarded on the subtotal of eligible items and does not include tax or any additional fees such as shipping.
Just so you know, Gold Rewards aren't offered on every store that has Honey support. If points are offered on a shopping site, you'll see it listed in the browser extension:
To enable Gold Rewards for a store, click the Activate button.
At checkout, click Apply Coupons when Honey appears and Gold Rewards will automatically activate. Honey will then automatically apply the best coupon we find to your order, giving you a chance to earn rewards and save money at the same time. We call that a win-win.
Gold point transactions post as pending in your Account Overview within 2-14 days of completing your eligible purchase, although this may vary in some instances depending on the purchase and retailer. You can learn more about pending points here.
What about exclusions?
Gold points are only available for eligible items. After you’ve enabled Gold rewards for a store, check the exclusions list for more information on exclusions that may apply for that site.
Exclusions are determined by the merchant and vary by store. If there are no eligible items in your order, you will not earn any points on that purchase. We won’t be able to determine if the items you’ve purchased are eligible until after you make your purchase.
Note: Using another rewards program will likely interfere with Honey. We recommend disabling any other rewards programs and ad blockers, so you don’t miss a chance to earn points on eligible purchases.
What is an Exclusive Offer and how do I get one?
Simply put, it’s a chance to get extra Gold points on items you love, which may rarely go on sale. We call these Exclusive Offers. When you’re shopping with our browser extension, Exclusive Offers pop-up on an item’s display page whenever they’re available.
Click Activate Offer to qualify for the Gold point amount featured (it’s a lot more than normal). These offers are time-sensitive, so act fast!
You can view your Exclusive Offer points in your Account Overview. Keep in mind, your points for Exclusive Offers will typically be marked as pending for 7 days while the merchant confirms your order. However, in some cases, Exclusive Offers may have a longer pending period of 60-90 days.
Note: Each Exclusive Offer can only be redeemed once per recipient, per item.
Is this different from the usual way to earn Gold points?
On most stores, you can earn a Gold point range on eligible items on your purchase. But with Exclusive Offers, you’ll know exactly how many points you’re going to get when you buy a specific item (remember, it can be a lot).
In your Account Overview, you will see points listed with a percent next to the status of that transaction. For Exclusive Offers, you will see the points listed without a percent listed - since it's a flat rate of points offered. See below as reference:
