- by Firefox user 16865769, 5 months agoRated 1 out of 5Super angry at this company. Been using Honey since 2018 and all I have to show for it is 3500 points I can't redeem. Doesn't count almost 3/4ths of my purchases and after contacting support with receipts they said in essence, tough luck we can't do anything. Its so comforting to know that the $800 I spent at Gamestop which prompted my looking at my points and contacting them in the first place is worth nothing. Not even mad at support, they are just doing their jobs. Its just a garbage app unless you are absolutely neurotic about watching every purchase using it, and hoping it decides to actually activate rewards and not just pretend to.
- by itsgiggleslol, 5 months agoRated 5 out of 5They have always been useful for helping me getting discounts on items i've wanted! Doesn't hurt to have them ready as an extension to your browser! All the 1 star reviews genuinely confuse me. This extension is not made to guarantee you coupons for very specific things you're looking to buy. They have plenty of coupons for thousands of items. You just gotta know what you're looking to buy. It's like those coupons you get at local stores, they aren't made to guarantee you coupons for something very specific that you are looking for. What they do however, is provide you with coupons for many items and you can even see what COUPONS THEY PROVIDE and FOR WHAT ITEMS. So look at the catalog and see if there is anything that INTERESTS YOU.
- by Firefox user 16853311, 6 months agoRated 2 out of 5I got Honey because all my favorite youtubers are shilling it. I have given honey 5 chances to save me money. It either didn't work, or gave me a coupon code that didn't save me as much as a coupon I easily found on my own. You'd think with millions of other users sharing codes it wouldn't be so easy for me to find a better code... well... Honey is a business.
I can't wait for someone to do an investigation into Honey and blow the lid on how they are making money by SHARING your data with third parties, and having partnership with these sites to make sure you use a coupon that is less beneficial to you so they can make even more money.
Nothing is free in this world, and inb4 some community manager copy pastes some generic response about how great Honey is. Go to https://www.joinhoney.com/privacy and read how they share your data, lol. They don't call it selling, they call it sharing with businesses they cooperate with. Nice loophole!
If you care about privacy and saving money, Honey isn't for you. If you don't care, honey will probably save you a dollar here or there. 2 stars and uninstalled.
