the ultimate life hack | save money with honey

We all love a good bargain but trawling the internet for voucher codes is long and boring. That’s where clever (and FREE) little extension Honey comes in. Created in 2012 by Ryan Hudson who came up with the idea when ordering pizza, wondering if there was an online code that could knock some dollars off the price, it’s a browser extension that automatically searches for coupon codes and applies them when you’re at the checkout, so you get any relevant savings just like that.

It works on thousands of stores, from Domino’s Pizza to Expedia to Topshop, and on Amazon you can also set up alerts to be notified when products drop in price – so no need to obsessively check back everyday to see if that hairdryer has gone on sale. The’re’s also the Honey Gold rewards programme, which gives you a voucher to spend at partner sites when you accumulate a certain number of points.

It’s worth bearing in mind that as it’s on your browser, Honey has access to whatever you’re looking and they are collecting data, so give their privacy policy a once over before you click install. Then you can start saving that sweet sweet money.
