Honey Extension

– What is it?
A chrome extension that triggers a pop-up when you are shopping on any online website (including food delivery services, Amazon, Sephora, and so much more!). Once you reach a store’s online check-out, the honey extension will trigger a pop-up asking if you would like to search for coupons. Honey then searches hundreds of coupon websites as well as its private base of user-entered coupons to find you the best deal. Honey automatically applies the coupon or coupons which save you the most money.
– Why do you think it’s desirable? Do your best to explain what you think works or not about it psychologically or emotionally for people who are fans of it?
I used to spend 20-30 minutes each time I online shopped to look for coupons. Even when I did find coupons, I couldn’t be sure I found the best one — sometimes learning a week later from a friend that I could have saved an extra 10 dollars with a different coupon code. Honey allows me to find coupons faster, and by searching tons of coupon websites, by using honey I feel more confident that I’ve actually found the best deal. Honey is also great for people who usually don’t have the time to search for coupons. By the simple click of a button, you can save money!
– Mention how your review compares to the previous reviewer
Both the previous reviewer and I are clearly fans of honey, and we notice a lot of the same wonderful things it adds to our discount hunting! One thing I pointed out that the previous reviewer did not mention is that honey allows a frequent coupon hunter to “feel” as if they’ve found the best coupon, without significant work. Rather than other websites that often just give you one or two possible coupons, leaving you to wonder if the true best deal is actually somewhere else.
– Copy the previous reviewer response below yours
I’m not really a bargain hunger, but I like getting a good deal as much as the next person. That’s why I downloaded Honey—a Google Chrome extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes for you. Essentially, it pops up on your screen when you get to the checkout of an online store, and and scours the web for coupons. It is almost a mindless step for the user (why not see if there is a discount available?) and it automatically applies the best coupon code to your basket after it looks at all available. It also allows you to see all the coupons available for a store, which could be helpful if, for example, you are $5 away from an online promotion. I appreciate the design of this extension because it has streamlined the process of getting a discount, it’s easy to use, and it is effective.
