Honey App Review – Automated, Seamless Cash Back Earnings

There are numerous ways to save money. One of them is by using coupons, of course. Unfortunately not all stores have coupons that you can find online. But did you know that every time you shop online – regardless of if you use coupons or not – you could be earning free cash backs!

What Is Honey Cashback?

honey review cashback browser extensionCash back is the amount of money that you get back when you shop at a store. It is usually fixed in percentage. For example, a store might offer 10% in cash back. It means that if you buy a $200 appliance, you will get $20 back which can either be a voucher that can only be used at that store in future, or it may as well be cold hard cash.

Honey app calls this Honey cashback offers “cash bonus” — they are the same. 🙂

Whenever you purchase at qualifying stores (which they have plenty), you will get cash bonus.

All About Honey – and how is it helpful?

Honey is a browser extension and because you almost always use a browser to shop online, this extension saves you money every time you check-out online. It has two main functions.

  1. Automatic Coupons Insertion

When you are at the checkout page of any qualifying store, in this case GoDaddy, click on the highlighted Honey icon on top right of your browser. Click on Try Codes and Honey app will automatically insert and check each coupon code to find you maximum savings. Proceed to check out, and enjoy both the coupon discount and cash bonus.

  1. Cash Back Rewards Program (also automatic)

Regardless of whether you applied coupons or not, you can enroll in the cash bonus (cash back) rewards program.

As you see, Honey browser extension sits there on your browser and saves your money without even you having to hustle.

I just renewed a domain at GoDaddy for about $12 and received 75 HoneyGold. How much of my time did it take? 10 seconds or less! If I had made a purchase of $120, that would have been 750 HoneyGold which is $7.5 worth of Amazon Giftcard.

As you can see below, my HoneyGold is ready to be redeemed!

I consider this plugin important because I make frequent online transactions. If I knew that there was this plugin to unconsciously earn cash back, I would have earned $500 so far. It means that I have lost $500 which could have been mine to spend on Amazon!

Remember that saving a dollar is just as important as earning it. With Honey browser extension installed, these dollars add up quickly as you shop online at your favorite stores. Best of all, it is automated: neither do you have to hunt for coupons nor do you have to sign up at third party cash back stores. Honey does that for you!

Payment Proof: (Pays in Amazon Giftcards, multiples of $10)

Depending on how much you shop online and cash rewards you accumulate, you can redeem those Honey Gold for Amazon giftcards. Following is a snapshot of what it looks like when I redeem mine.

And then few hours later…… BAAM! Honey sends me a $10 Amazon giftcard code via email … umm for doing no laborious work at all? 🙂 Man I LOVE this!

    I like the extension and its feature. Have been using it a lot lately. It is a slow money maker if you will. It’s not a method to make money online. Rather a lifehack to apply automatic discount. And some stores give you cashback upto like 10% that might take care of monthly phone bill. Since it is full automatic I’d recommend this to everyone who shops online!

      I am glad you also see Honey as a passive money maker, and also more as a top method of saving money online on every purchase we make. I always make sure to see if Honey has discounts before I check out on any websites I buy my stuffs. Amazon and Groupon cash rewards program by Honey is the best in my opinion…. a way to accumulate Honey Gold by putting in no effort.

    I hit the jackpot with 20pct cash bonus on a $730 purchase of the phones!

    No maintenance high reward plug in. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

    Thanks, saved money today! I’m delighted that I bookmarked your page and came back to it to install Honey on my PC.

    Hey, I just installed and it auto-applied coupons for me at several online stores. This is almost magical rather than I searching for coupons individually!

    When will I get the giftcard rewards after cashing out?

    • Webpicked January 21, 20174:15 pm

      Approx 1 or less business day if it is your first time cashing out. If you’ve cashed out before on Honey, it will be almost instant. They send out email which has gift card codes to be redeemed at amazon.com/gc. If you cashed out a long time ago and still haven’t received anything, send them an email and they’ll take care of it. Hope that helped. Best!

    So this is kind of like Cyber Monday, but for the entire year? I liked the idea so I have installed the extension on Chrome. Will keep an eye out for the discounts when I shop next time.
