Honey is a great invention that helps online shoppers save money. It automatically searches for coupons and the lowest prices on the internet when you're buying stuff online. It's also free to use.
Honey can be used worldwide, but it works best in the USA, UK, Australia, and Canada (most features are available in these regions).
How Does It Work?
Honey works completely automatically. It looks at the items you have in your online shopping cart on a certain website and then scans the Internet to find the best deals available for that specific product.
If Honey finds any active coupons, it enters them automatically so you save money.

Honey Bonus Features and Programs
Honey has partnered with Amazon
It has a special feature that tells Amazon shoppers if the item they’re getting is the best deal on the website. If it’s not, it offers them the lower deal as an option to further increase the savings.
Additionally, Honey informs you if there’s an option to save more on shipping costs, as well as buying the product at another time when the price is lower.
When you shop from participating websites, you get a percentage of cash back in Honey Gold which can be redeemed for cool stuff.
When you have 1,000 Honey Gold, you can redeem it for a $10 gift card at the following stores:
Note: This feature is only available in U.S., UK, Australian, and Canadian shopping sites.
For USA shoppers, this feature oversees your favorite items and notifies you whenever their price drops below a certain amount you set. It also analyzes the historical costs of the same item, so you can know when is the best time to buy it.
You have a personalized link from Honey with which you can invite other members to join the community (up to 200). Whenever someone joins by using your link, you get 500 Honey Gold that is $5 in real money.
