Honey has one job, and I found it couldn't do it at all. The entire time I had it installed it found 0 coupon codes that would work for whatever I was purchasing.
Today when making a purchase at a pretty well know retailer I tried Honey yet again only to have it tell me there were 0 coupons/codes out of 14 it found, that would work for me. This didn't seem right as I know this retailer loves coupon codes, specifically for free shipping so I google 'said-retailer coupon codes' and the first website, your standard coupon code farming site (loaded with ads and trackers of course-thank goodness for all the blockers), had on the first entry a 20% off the entire site code, that worked.
The most interesting part of this is that this code did flash on the Honey extension when I tried to use it initially (as it was 'trying codes'), so why wasn't it applied? Why did Honey say it had used it and it didn't effect the price outcome but when I manually entered it it worked correctly? I don't know how this extension is getting such great reviews. I've had this extension installed for almost 3 months now with it doing nothing for me and I shop online A LOT. I'm now wondering how many discounts I could have found myself just with google, instead of trusting this extension to look for me.
