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. 

Mobile Options

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.  

Cost/Price Plans

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.   

Refund Policy

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.

Competitors and Alternatives?

There are many other mobile applications that attempt to help people save money with their regular shopping habits, including Quidco, Checkout 51, Ibotta App, and many others.

messes up your other shopping rebate sites

November26, 2016

There are a lot of sites out there that if you shop through them, you get a percentage back. One I use regularly is Ebates.com Beware, if you click the "honey" button at check out to earn "honey gold" it over rides any other site you went through and you will lose your rebate from the other site. For example, all weekend I thought I shopped through Ebates where I was earning 7-10% back on my shopping, only to find Honey wiped it all out and I "may" have earned something but they don't tell you how much for a few days (or weeks?) but it was most likely 1% and it is in their "Honey Gold" that you can't get back until you reach a certain threshold. I learned my lesson....its not worth using compared to many other rebate sites.

I love Ebates! I have gotten Big Fat Checks sent to me every 3 months if they owe me $5 or more I have received more then $1400.00!!!!!! I go to ebates click where I want to shop. At check out Ebates looks for the best coupons and puts them in for me. I do not have to redeem, clip, send rebate papers. I set back, shop and they add coupons and send me the check I cash, can give to a charity or spend at amazon. I also use Shopathome.com I like to see which has the most percentage money back.

What I've found, is sometimes the price's are higher going through Ebate's, than if I go straight to the store. You need to check both ways. If you use Ebates make sure you go back through them before you check out or you won't get your credit either.

Doesn't work

August30, 2016

I've had it for over a month. It does check coupons on Amazon, thought there never are any. It also says the best price, but you better check yourself, because I've found on several occasions, the price they listed wasn't the best price. On ebay it always says click for bonus, I do, and it says you got a bonus, we'll contact you via email in a couple days. They NEVER contact you, you never get anything. I checked my account, balance zero. I have written them three times, no response.
