Saving money while shopping used to be a tiresome effort requiring clipping coupons from weekly or monthly advertisements and then bringing them to your store in person. Keeping track of the savings available and integrating them into your shopping trip was a task largely relegated to the meticulous. While online shopping has forced retailers to be more competitive and has made the process of shopping far more convenient, finding the best coupons can still be a chore. A number of sites aggregate coupon codes together, but the onus is on the user to sort through the results in pursuit of the one that best suits their shopping experience. Honey changes all of that by automatically sorting through all available coupons and applying them at the checkout process. What's great about Honey is how unobtrusive it is. It runs as an extension for your browser, appearing as a simple orange icon above your search bar. When you're at an online retailer supported by Honey, you'll see this icon display the number of coupon codes available. All users have to do to get a listing of these coupons is click on the icon to browse through the full list. There's no need to run a separate app, and it's always available to you directly through your browser. Sorting through your own coupons is great when you want to tailor your shopping experience around the promotions available to you, but Honey is even easier to use when you know exactly what you want. Once you hit the checkout section of retailers supported by Honey, a pop-up will automatically give you the option to check coupons. The Honey extension will then field test the promo codes available directly in your browser and automatically assign you the one that saves you the most money. You can also check out their website to see regularly updated coupons from their top retailers, a great choice if you're looking to do some comparison shopping. While Honey got its start at simplifying the process of sorting through coupons, they've since expanded to offer a price drop feature when shopping on Amazon. With DropList, you can tag items that interest you and automatically receive an alert when these products go down in price. Honey even lets you see the historical pricing trends for products that you can use to plan your future purchases. Tagged items send alerts whenever their price drops by more than five percent, and users can choose to track these products for 30, 60, or 90 days. The final component of the Honey experience is Honey Gold, a free incentives program that rewards shoppers for using the extension. Thousands of stores are available through Honey Gold, and they offer up to 20% cash back on all purchases made by Honey users. This cash back currency can then be turned into gift cards or other rewards.
