What is Honey Gold?

What is Honey Gold?

Honey Gold is our free rewards program that lets you earn Gold towards store gift cards on your eligible purchases. When you shop participating stores with the Honey browser extension, you can get a chance to earn Gold on your purchase.

Gold is rewarded on the subtotal of eligible items and does not include tax or any additional fees such as shipping. 

Just so you know, Honey Gold isn't offered on every store that has Honey support. If Honey Gold is offered on a shopping site, you'll see it listed in the browser extension:

To enable Honey Gold 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.

Honey Gold 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 Honey Gold here.

What about exclusions?

Honey Gold is only available for eligible items. After you’ve enabled Honey Gold 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 Honey Gold 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 Honey Gold on eligible purchases.

What is an Exclusive Offer and how do I get one?

Simply put, it’s a chance to get extra Honey Gold rewards 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 amount featured (it’s a lot more than normal). These offers are time-sensitive, so act fast!

You can view your Exclusive Offer Gold in your Account Overview. Keep in mind, your Gold for Exclusive Offers will be marked as pending while the merchant just confirms your order, typically 7 days.

Note: Each Exclusive Offer can only be redeemed once per recipient, per item.

Is this different from the usual way to earn Gold?

On most stores, you can earn a Gold range on eligible items on your purchase. But with Exclusive Offers, you’ll know exactly how much Gold you’re going to get when you buy a specific item (remember, it can be a lot).
