You’ve probably heard of the chrome plugin Honey, right? It’s an ad in so many YouTube videos, but does it actually work as expected? Well here’s what I think:
So when I first saw Honey I thought: I can save this much?! Well who wouldn’t? You see the ad and you see people saving 100s of pounds on ‘thousands of different sites!’ I kept seeing adverts and people saving so much money…I just really thought: I NEED HONEY.
The ads were all quite different but both were going on about how you can save loads of money. I can save money on pizza, I can save money on phones…the list went on.
I downloaded it and most people would think: “Wooo!! I’m going to shop so much and they’ll be more savings for me!” Uh no. My thoughts became nowhere near reality when I saw it! Here’s my review on Honey…
The first thing I did was ‘install Honey is two clicks!’ Then I just waited until I wanted to do some shopping. When I did, I went to the checkout, about to buy these £100 shoes. In my head: Ooooh I’m so excited! I’m going to practically get them for freeee! So I just sat there waiting for Honey to do what it is supposed to do. Save me money.
I finally felt like I was in one of the ads when the tiny, cute, adorable (did I mention super cute??!) coin appeared and Honey started searching for coupons! I was so excited to see the results. How much would I save? £10? £25? £50?
Then of course, it didn’t work. Apparently, Honey had already found the best price for me. I’D ALREADY FOUND A COUPON CODE THAT WORKED FINE BEFORE HONEY SAVED ME £0.00
I tried Honey again on another site and the same thing happened!
My recommendation: PLEASE DO NOT GET HONEY! IT JUST DOESN’T WORK
