    Pros: 

    Easiest way to find and apply coupons at checkout across the web

    Cons: 

    Not available on mobile

    I just saved $15 on a new bed frame last night using Honey.

    Honey is one of my favorite Chrome extensions. In the past I would often search Google for “STORE NAME coupon”, browsing through ugly, popup-ridden coupon code sites, most of which didn’t work (because they’re expired or fake). Honey does that for you and attempts to apply codes at checkout.

    They also have a price tracking feature for sites like Amazon so you can signup to receive a notification when the price drops.

    Pros: 

    Innovative Concept to Manage Offers and Discounts

    Cons: 

    Lack of Proper Awareness Among Heavy Shoppers

    Product discovery, where the right consumer has access to the right solution at the right time, is essential. Honey has the solution that people want, now it has to make sure it reaches all the interested folk through channel partnerships.

@rrhoover thanks for sharing. We get coupons a lot of the same places you would as a consumer. Automating email is certainly something we have discussed. We have some even more interesting things (we think) coming soon...

This is awesome! I was buying a GoDaddy domain, honey automatically plugged in a bunch of promo codes and tested them all out, and I saved 14 dollars on a $15 domain. I ONLY PAID $1.24!

I wonder how they're sourcing their coupons. At Decide, we had a hypothesis that the best coupons only show up via email if you sign-up for that store. We thought about signing-up for every store, crawling that email account for coupons and use NLP to figure out how long the coupon was valid for.

@hsukenooi - smart! They may be doing something much less sophisticated -- manual sourcing. Thankfully it's not that expensive and certainly not technically challenging to hire overseas labor to do it. (at least it's a good start)
