I’ll be the first to admit it – I hate paying full price for anything. Whether it’s flights, pizza, clothes or anything in between, I love couponing and always make sure I never pay the advertised price!
Nothing beats that feeling knowing you’ve saved money on something you were about to pay the full price for. I’m sure I’m not the only one who, when they see a coupon box on a website, opens a new tab and searches for a money saving code.
While I don’t go as far as those seen in TLC’s Extreme Couponing, I still love to grab a bargain and save some money while I’m at it.
However, more often than not this can lead you down a rabbit hole of useless coupons and sites trying to hit the top of the search rankings with fake discount codes that never work in the first place – extremely frustrating!
Now what if there was an easier method?
Turns out there is, and someones already cracked the code!

Introducing – Honey
Welcome to the world of digital couponing! Honey is a free browser extension that automatically finds and applies coupon codes at checkout for over 30,000 shopping sites. They also instantly find better prices on Amazon and offer Honey Gold at many online stores for American, Canadian, and UK members.
How Does It Work?
If you haven’t installed Honey yet, click here. They currently support the majority of the popular web browsers; Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera and Edge.
Once Honey is installed, you will see the Honey icon in the top right corner turn orange on Chrome, Firefox, Opera, and Edge when you’re on a shopping site that is supported by Honey.
Click on the Honey button to see coupons that are available for a store.
When you’re on a checkout page with a promo code field, Honey will pop up. Click Apply Coupons and they’ll automatically try all known digital coupon codes for that shopping site (including Honey-exclusive codes).
If they find a code that works, they’ll apply the one that saves you the most money!
Bonus Round: Honey Gold
Now what could be even sweeter than saving every time you shop? That sweet-sweet Honey Gold baby!
As an added perk, Honey also offer a little something called Honey Gold at many stores! When Honey makes a commission from the sale of an item, they split the profits with you –– literally passing along the savings!
All you have to do is activate Honey Gold (only available for U.S. shopping, UK, Australian, and Canadian sites) before checking out.
You’ll receive a randomized bonus in the form of Honey Gold that can be viewed in your Account Overview. When activating Honey Gold, you cannot use multiple cash back programs at the same time. They also recommend disabling ad-block programs on store checkout pages. You can always re-enable them after you’ve finished checking out.
So what do you do with all this Honey Gold you’ve collected?
Once you’ve accumulated 1000 Honey Gold you can redeem your Gold for a $10 gift card at the following stores (for U.S. members):
- Charity Choice
- 1-800 Flowers
