Is there anyone else that only shops online? Honestly speaking, I only buy gifts in an actual storefront when a last minute event pops up. Although, I still narrow my online shopping to the cheapest places – Walmart and Amazon. Every now and then I will splurge on a more boutique site if I’m looking for a specific gift, but normally I stay mainstream.
The holidays this year will be even more hectic regarding gift-giving because we will be going international. Yep, you read that right! My parents moved to Germany so we will be spending Christmas with them and the rest of my family.
Nate’s family will still be here in Utah though, so we (let’s be real, I) will have to coordinate our gifts and ship them to the right locations.
As much work as it might be, the thing I won’t have to worry about is our budget. By using Honey, it automatically saves us money on almost all of our online purchases. Let me show you how and why you need it!

Reason #1: Honey is Convenient
No, I’m not referring to the golden sweetener that bees formulate. What I’m talking about is Honey. An internet extension [there is an app in development] that can be downloaded straight to your computer. Once installed, you should see it’s orange logo appear to the right of the search bar at the top of your screen. That tells you the savings can begin!
If you are on a website that Honey partners with, the logo will be orange. If not, it will be gray. And just like that, you will immediately know if a website is worth shopping from or not.
Honey has over 4,000 participating sites, so for me, it’s rare to come across a store that doesn’t use Honey. That’s what I mean when I say Honey is convenient. I don’t have to put in the extra effort to find stores with deals, it does it for me!
Reason #2: Honey is Automatic
Now let me explain how Honey works. You are on a website and notice that the Honey logo is orange, meaning there can be savings. When you checkout a product, Honey will automatically pop up, asking if you want to check the savings and apply the coupons. You will click the “Apply Coupons” button (obviously), then see Honey go through all the coupon and discount codes in its system. That’s right, Honey has all the coupon codes you need so you don’t have to find them yourself.
It automatically finds the code with the best deal and plugs it into your purchase, thus automatically lowering the amount you pay. I have saved tons of money on Choice Hotels, Walmart, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, even Music Notes! The best part was that I didn’t have to do a thing!
Plus, if you know of a coupon code that Honey doesn’t already have yet, you can add it to their system for other buyers to use. It then racks up your Honey Gold points!
Reason #3: Honey is Rewarding
When you make a purchase using Honey Gold (the rewards system), it adds a percentage of that to your “Gold” account. Hit 1,000 in Gold points, and you can choose to receive a $10 gift card from one of nine stores: Amazon, Walmart, Target, Ebay, Nordstrom, Sephora, Groupon, Macy’s, or 1-800 Flowers.
In addition, Honey Gold gives you a bonus of 1,000 points when you first sign up. That’s an automatic $10 gift card!
In the off chance that the store you want to buy from doesn’t have any working discount codes, Honey will still add points to your Gold account too. No matter what, it’s a win-win.
Honey has literally saved us hundreds of dollars so far on tons of different stores and tons of different products. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. You can save money for your family without paying for a credit card or special account. Honey Gold is absolutely free!
