I want to love this new site, but so far I can only muster a lukewarm, “Meh…”
It’s a great idea: once you fill your online cart, Honey will search for coupon codes for you, and automatically apply any that work at checkout. I was excited to try it, because God knows I spend enough time searching for deals. I was looking forward to not having to seek, click, cut and paste endless coupon codes in order to find one that worked.
So I did a test. The product: this “body souffle” from Tokyomilk Dark – so luxurious. Unfortunately it comes with a price tag to match, so I’ve been rationing the jar I have. (Note to everyone: if you ever want to get me a gift, this would be it.)
First I went to the source – the Tokyomilk site. I placed a jar in my cart, then I tried to grab a deal from Honey. Here’s what came back:
Okay. I went to Sephora instead. This time, when I clicked on the Honey button, a box popped up and gave me the option to check 10 discount codes. I clicked the button…
…and got this message.
So I went to good ol’ TopCashBack, where I got this:
Clearly, this would be the best option. So Honey didn’t help me at all.
After all this, I decided not to buy the dang thing after all, because it costs $40. I’ll just wait for my birthday to roll around again.
So…I can see that Honey might be helpful with certain purchases, and I’m not going to remove it from my desktop just yet. But so far I’m not impressed.
Has anyone else tried Honey yet? What did you think?
