About Honey App
The Honey App, found online at JoinHoney.com, is a new browser plugin extension which says their goal is to ensure that their members “never miss a coupon code, ever again.”
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the Honey App is a new service that “makes it ridiculously easy to save money and time.” Their job is to automatically find the best coupon codes for the website when you are currently shopping and then apply them to your order when you check out.
In order to use the Honey App, you simply need to download it and install it on your desktop browser. The Honey button will appear in your browser bar. Whenever you are shopping at one of their partner stores, you can click on the Honey button to view all available sales and coupon codes.
If you are already in the checkout process, you can click the Find Savings button and Honey will automatically find and then apply the best coupon or coupons for your purchase.
This website also says that they offer something called HoneyGold, which customers get when they take advantage of an exclusive offer. This HoneyGold can eventually be used toward rewards like Amazon gift cards, and more.
At this time, the Honey App is available on desktop versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Opera. The website says that they are currently working on expanding their desktop browser options, and have a plan to offer a mobile application in the near future so this app can be used when mobile shopping.
The Honey App is actually completely free to download and to use at this time, and the website says that they are able to provide this service completely free to their members because they earn a small commission from the stores they partner with at certain times when one of their members makes a purchase.
Because the Honey App is completely free to use at this time, they do not offer their customers a Refund Policy, and any customer who uses this app to make a purchase must go directly to the third party website where they actually made their purchase and follow their stated Return and Refund Policies.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link on their website.
Currently the Honey App appears to have very positive reviews, both from their users and from technology blogs and websites that are excited about the concept of a browser extension being able to automatically apply coupon codes.
Unfortunately this website does not provide a lot of information about how their HoneyGold rewards program works and what people can expect to earn from it if they decide to take advantage of the exclusive offers that earn it for you.

Not worth the time to download another app. I’ve tried it for 4 months and have never saved anything. I already find the best deals by shopping online. It seems that the only pot sweetened is Hioney’s as they are probably benefiting off of my purchases.
i haven't had honey for very long, but i wanted to leave this review because so far i'm very impressed! my $60 total at gap ended up being $32! i haven't tried out the honey gold thing yet, so i'm not sure if that works. but i'm ready to believe this is a very honest and helpful company.
They say the app is free. come on, NOTHING is free.
they say they get a commission from the vendors. FALSE.
they make their money from selling the information, from the suckers that join the app. hence, a flood of emails, snail mails, and phone calls from dozens and dozens of companies that you have never done business with.
I tried to turn in my Honey points for a $70.00 Target gift card and NEVER received it. They send an automatic email response that had nothing to do with me not getting my gift card. This is a scam. They make money but you don't received anything.
I like the feelings invoced off the "I Don't Need a new phone" commercial now hear this I just want to hurt you're feelings a smidgen. after watching this henry zebrowski could play commercial roles so well I know it even better they can both be part of your add campaign. yea do that than get rid of the other guy you have know or that's a thumbs down for me brother.
I've been with Honey over a year now. In the beginning they were great, but now they wont give me my Honey Gold even though it lists me having Gold on their site. Don't waste your time.
Although Honey seems to do what it says about finding good prices and coupon codes, it falls short of applying purchase points to my account. I have made several hundreds of dollars of purchases that Honey says will add points to my account. Even after waiting over 2 months for the sales to "clear"' I only get about one in ten sales applied for points that I was told were pending. Most of these purchases came thru Amazon or Ebay so there should not have been a problem verifying them.
Ebay purchases used to have a decent return but now they only give back .1%. I went from getting cash back every other month to only getting cash back 1 time a year. Time to look for something else.
I have subscribed to several different offers that promise this and that only to find my email inbox being flooded with ads from companies I never have done business with. I go through a couple of times a month and unsub from 95 percent of the companies I want nothing to do with only to find in a couple of months my email inbox has over 100 messages a day coming in and on average I delete 90 - 95 of them and never even open them. I really hate junk mail in what ever form it comes in. Don't get me started on ROBO CALLS!!!! Computers don't care if I cuss them out, too bad.
Well anyone who does install this app already knows what this app will do to their personal information. They know because right before you click the ADD button they tell you that they WILL share your information and they WILL change things you submit. I would be very careful I definitely will NOT be adding this app now. If they can go and will change what is, or what you are submitting, what else can they get access to, remember you are on shopping sites, site where you give your personal credit card information and bak information. I wouldn't touch this site with a ten foot pole!
I was on amazon, and I decided I wanted to save money. I clicked on honey, and it showed me a bunch of codes. I went through EVERY single one of them and everything said "Code is invalid." So don't waste your time downloading this.
I've saved so much using honey. I have saved on Amazon, Groupon, airline tickets and so much more. Not exactly sure how the rewards work, but it doesn't matter. I wish I was keeping track of how much I have saved, but it's over $1,000 easily!
I find that most of the time I can find a better deal by checking myself on Amazon when honey says this is the best deal. I think when they say best deal that means that they will make themselves the most money not save me the most money
I joined joinHoney.com in July 2018 when it offered a $30 cash back if purchased certain amount at Macy's directed from joinHoney.com website, which I did.
The transaction pending for a while on joinHoney.com after the purchase waiting to be verify. So I figured like Ebates, joinHoney.com will send a check to me.
Well, the Experience Specilitist of joinHoney.com I chat with, talked like a Used Car Salesmen, refused to honor the offer.
joinHoney.com is a SCAM
I wish I could add a minus in front of that rating. I won't waste another second with this useless junk.
I want to get rid of it. I can't stand it. How do I do that from Safari and chrome?
If you do manage to get rewards, you have to wait months for them to be applied to you account. All you see is pending for months.
I have had the app for over a year now and it has not been more useful than the actual offers displayed on the sites. It does the whole routine of scanning and looking for the best offers and coupons out there for you, but really at the end of it gives you the promo code that is already promoted by the website it is used on.
One would assume that it makes a thorough search on the back end and looks for the active coupons from third party coupon sites like Retail me not etc, but it does no such thing and often comes back with nothing!
I am often successful by simply searching for codes on Google myself. Pretty unimpressive.
