  1. That’s interesting. I have near heard about this browser extension before. Does it really show similar sellers with the only difference being the price? Or, is there any catch, like longer delivery time, slightly different specifications from the original one, etc.?

    • I do not believe it compares delivery time or if there are slightly different specifications. I think the only comparison it makes is in price.

  2. Is it only available in the U.S.?

    • I looked in their “Terms” section on the website and could not find anything that says it can’t be used outside the U.S. Of course, that’s no guarantee. You could try reading that section more thoroughly than I did to see if you find anything I missed. Also, at the bottom of that section is an email address as well as a mailing address for questions. You could always email them and ask. Good luck and thanks for asking that question!

  3. I found the app to be essentially useless. Most of the time it showed that I had the lowest price already for the Amazon product and the 1-2 times it found a cheaper option it was by pennies. I got tired of waiting for the app to complete its cycling time only to provide nothing of real value, so I deleted it.

  4. I had no idea how legit this was. I’ve been using it for 1 year. It does help find coupon codes sometimes. I just redeemed my points for a 40 dollar Amazon gift card. I just got free money for doing nothing! I didn’t believe it until now. I just got the email. It was a pleasant surprise, to be honest. It saves me money and makes me money!

    • That’s great! I’m glad to hear that you are liking Honey and getting some benefit from using it. Thanks for your positive comments!

  5. This app has saved me nothing after months of tries. But, it has caused lockouts and lost time, and has caused lost deals due to wasting time trying to get out of Honey and back to the offer without Honey. Honey is a bad joke.

    • I’m sorry you had a negative experience with Honey. If you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to let Honey know of your struggles so they have the opportunity to improve their product. Thanks for commenting.

  6. This extension is pretty useless. You get about one tenth of one percent in the form of “Honey Gold” which takes weeks to clear. To be honest, it’s not worth it and they are probably just mining your shopping habits. How else can they offer you free money? Don’t bother.

  7. Will Honey work with Rakuten (Ebates)?

    • My understanding is that you can’t do both. However, you can read the policies, terms and conditions, and FAQ’s on each site to double check. If that doesn’t tell you, contact them directly to ask.

  8. If I join “honey”, will I get a bunch of unwanted emails and ads? I already get too much junk!

    • They may send you emails if you sign up with an email, but you can unsubscribe from their email list if they do! But you shouldn’t have to use an email as it’s just an extension on your browser!

  9. The app doesn’t work! I’ve checked a wholesale supplier to Walmart that actually has an amazon store and their own website. When I search the store, I find a cheaper price than the amazon search. Honey doesn’t list the stores items on a search. Walmart sells the items off the shelf cheaper than Amazon. It’s a great concept but the programmers are not smart enough for the app to actually work.

    • Yes, it’s mostly a tool to compare online shopping, and sometimes in store prices beat online so it can be hit and miss!
