As part of an ever-growing global digital agency, I can say with complete confidence that Honey has been integral in helping us maintain our universal sense of culture and communication. Whether it be a post on the state of anticipatory design, a new project's launch, or opinions on the best Michael Jackson song, everyone has the opportunity to take part in the conversation. And it makes us all the stronger for it.

Pros
Really creates a singular,open internal communication outlet despite organization's size or number of global locations.

Cons
I'd love to be able to attach calendar invites (alert-based times/dates) to event-based posts.

Start Saving Money

Overall, Honey is amazing! It has saved me a lot of money, I have build up rewards that I have used toward gift cards and it does it automatically. Make sure that you double check your purchase before you confirm and be aware that if your purchase is time sensitive, you may want to turn off honey before you begin because the scan can take a few seconds, and will scan whenever you check out with something, so time sensitive things like auctions on different sites could potentially be lost because Honey will look for a coupon code.

Pros
Honey is an awesome tool for people who do a lot of purchasing online. This software searches for and alerts the user to coupon codes that can save them money on their purchases from just about everywhere. And it does it automatically after it is installed and set up.

Cons
Honey will always default to a "cash" discount rather than added merchandise so be aware. For example, on one purchase that I made, a years supply of a rather expensive fish food was offered with purchase or a coupon code could have been added for $15. Both codes could not be used on the same purchase. I much rather have had the fish food which would have totaled out to more saved for me in the long run but honey wiped out that coupon code to attach the $15 off code. Thankfully I caught it before hitting the confirmation button.

Neat plug in, but not very effective

Review Source: Capterra

This application is ok, not great. I find it to be more hassle than it is worth, as it takes some time to run through the different coupon options, and when it does not work, the page resets. I have only gotten something good out of it once or twice.

Pros
What I like the most about this software is that it is a plug in directly to your browser like Google Chrome, and then when you are on an e-commerce site, like Amazon, and check out, it pops up to say it found coupons and asks if you want to apply the coupons.

Cons
What I like least about this software is that I find it quite ineffective. I think I have only had a coupon that actually works a handful of times, if that, and if I ever have my own code, the ones that Honey finds are never as good as the ones I have.

Why WOULDN'T you have this app automatically find coupons/discounts for your online purchases??

It works better than WikiBuy which has gotten me nothing so far but seems to direct us to lost leaders. Just load the Honey app, already and let it do it's thing on Amazon, Etsy, etc.!

Pros
There's no thinking involved. The Honey app finds and applies discounts and coupons directly to your purchases. There's no downside. Maybe you can still cash points in for gift cards which I did at my job once, too.

Cons
Er, nothing I can think of. I guess I just never know the difference between going to the my account and how points are collected for gift cards vs. just getting discounts on my purchases.

I have it installed so that anytime I go to a checkout cart, the available coupons pop up and apply themselves to my cart. Love it

Pros
I love Honey. I have it in my browser installed so when I go and buy things, it will automatically pop up and search for coupons from all over the internet to apply and gives you the best deal

Cons
I love everything about Honey. It couldn't be easier to use and is something I specifically go to my laptop to use when ordering. I guess the only thing I'd love would be it to be used somehow in a browser on mobile

Review Source: Capterra

I have definitely saved some money over the years.

Pros
For me, Honey was the first of its kind. I used to spend forever trying to hunt down coupon codes. Honey integrates seamlessly into my online shopping. It's a no brainer.

Cons
Now, there are so many options when it comes to getting money back. Since Honey uses points for money back instead of dollars, it is hard to compare to others in terms of cash back.

The program works great, saves me money, and is definately worth getting.

Pros
Honey does just what it says and finds you discount codes for countless websites. I've saved a lot of money that I wouldn't have without Honey. Honey is very useful and easy to use. It's very simple and easy, Honey puts the codes reminds you to check for codes when cashing out on a website and puts the codes right in for you.

Cons
There's little to nothing I dislike about this software. On a rare occasion the codes don't work but I dont mind that.

Pros
Honey has discount codes for literally every website I shop on. Sometimes I can even get discounts on Amazon. Honey also has the price-drop feature, where you can bookmark an item and be notified when the price goes down on it! Super cool, super helpful, super easy to install and use with Google Chrome. Honey will make my Christmas shopping infinitely easier this year!

Cons
I truly have nothing bad to say about this software.

Pros
The software is completely free! It does not have any cost, and it does not spam you with notifications, it is merely just a tool to help you save money.

Cons

Honey, How I Love You

Review Source: GetApp

I click on my Honey bookmark at least ten times a day. As an admin, I find it to be the most powerful tool to spread the news about what I'm up to at work (I run events for my company), as well as respond to any questions people have, either pre-emptively or by using the comments. It's helpful for me as a directory, a crowdsourcing tool, a repository of the day's relevant topics as well as a way to survey relevant discussions over time.

Pros
Beautiful, easy, helpful, cute. It's the only work-related site/software/app that doesn't completely suck, and not only that, but is actually awesome.

Great platform for organisational-wide comms!

We can store and share information across five offices worldwide in a professional & streamlined way.

Pros
We use this platform to socialize our fortnightly newsletter across the company internationally. Also as a platform to publish and promote articles internally and learnings that affect people in the company, from data security updates to onboarding assets.

Cons
The usability can be confusing at time, and the search & filing function has room for improvement. Again it's a tool that needs commitment so if the organization as a whole is on-board it can work well.

In the past we would not even know if there was a better deal out there so we would have to shop around and that took forever sometimes.

Pros
I love how much time we safe because we do not have to shop sites for the best deal on an item anymore, we just look for what we need and Honey does the rest for us! Very valuable to save time (which is money) and save money on the items we need.

There is nothing to not like, it is easy and very valuable for us to save time and money, we are so happy to have found it!

Different kind of Intranet

Review Source: GetApp

We introduced Honey to our mid-sized agency in an effort to connect and inspire employees as well as foster collaboration across the agency and our locations.

Pros
We immediately adopted directory functionality of Honey and we love to utilize the user tagging. Overall, the tool is intuitive and engaging. People adopted it fairly quickly, even senior level team members. The customer support is phenomenal from initial sales conversations through to day-to-day maintenance. Highly responsive and transparent about updates.

Cons
Honey is constantly improving. As a newer service, there are definitely features that could be enhanced, however an amazing part of Honey today is being able to have a conversation with the customer support folks and then see the changes you requested or talked about being implemented almost immediately. We have the ability to help shape the program to our needs.

Especially now, when the online purchases have increased, or even if you need inspirations of online stores to buy, Honey is a nice choice. Really easy to use and free, can save you a lot of time and money!

Pros
Honey is a browser extension for Google (in my case) that is really easy to use. Whenever you are buying something, it searches for the best deals and coupons. You can actually save a lot, if you use it frequently.

Cons
As a little con, Honey finds coupons that are not necessarily right for your products or are expired, so you have to test them all, for sometimes to find none works.
