Thursday Tech [Honey Chrome Extension]

Can’t recall how I found this money saving Chrome extension, but Honey is beyond awesome.

Honey does what RetailMeNot, Slickdeals and other similar sites can’t do. Automatic Couponing. What do I mean by that. Essentially Honey scours the web, finds a relevant coupon and automagically applies it at checkout. It doesn’t get easier than this, folks.

I first used Honey at (my registrar of choice) NameCheap. Basically after I found the domain name I was looking for, I then headed for checkout and simply clicked the Honey icon on my toolbar. Sure enough after about a minute or so – it found a relevant coupon code, auto applied it to my cart and I saved a few bucks on my purchase. 🙂

You can find Honey at the Chrome store as a free download. My only complaint with this browser extension is just that – its a browser extension and as such can only be used on a desktop or laptop. It isn’t compatible with mobile devices. 🙁 Considering that everything is mobile today, its surprising there’s no app. Yet. We want an Android app please. Unless there’s something we’re misunderstanding with the Honey Chrome extension – why is this only available as an add-on for our toolbar?

But bottom line: If you shop online alot and don’t mind saving money, you will love Honey. And that concludes this edition of Thursday Tech. Stay tuned next week, where we will feature another great tech find.
