Honey review: search discount codes
When you shop, you have probably looked on a blurry website to see if you can score a working discount code. Usually this results in nothing and in the meantime you have seen the advertisements of the coupon website or your behavior is being monitored in some other way.
Honey should be an alternative to that. Honey is primarily a browser extension that automatically searches for discount codes when you try to pay in a webshop. There is also an app. This app has been downloaded more than a million times in the Play Store.
Honey is mainly big in the United States. If you ever watch YouTube, you’ve probably seen people like MrBeast praise the service. If you open the app for the first time, you can simply choose the Netherlands as the country in which you shop. The app has also been translated into Dutch. You search for the store where you want to shop and see which coupon codes are available.
Shopping and your data
You can shop via the browser of the app, which has an offers button at the bottom of the screen where you can find the coupons. In connection with your privacy, this is a questionable action, because in this way you share your login information from webshops and your entire shopping session (what you look at and what you buy) with the app.
However, Honey is quite open about what data is collected and for what purposes. Analyzing your shopping behavior is part of improving the app, but your data is not sold. Honey makes its money from the fact that the company is paid by the stores for every purchase you make through the app. Sometimes discount codes are even offered that are available exclusively through Honey.
Honey has only recently been active in the Netherlands. You notice this, among other things, because not all webshops can be found in the app. Still, the range is quite decent and it is mainly the smaller shops that are missing.
Extra Rewards with Honey Gold
Also, the number of coupons is very limited and a lot of them don’t work. Still, the app helps you with that. You can see how successful the coupon is and how long ago a promotional code was successfully used.
The app encourages you to shop a lot. Because if you successfully exchange a coupon, you can earn Honey Gold. Usually this is a small percentage of the amount that the product costs. Once you’ve collected a thousand Gold, you can cash it out as a gift card for a particular store.
This system is also intended to allow you to register. Because only with an account you can collect Honey Gold. However, the app can also be used without logging in, if you just want to find coupon codes.
Honey review: conclusion
Despite its drawbacks, Honey is still an interesting app. Especially if you sometimes search for discount codes and end up on the strangest websites, Honey is a more safe and reliable alternative. Especially because the service does not earn its money with your data, but through deals with shops. If you want to save money, this is a handy app to put on your phone.
