Holiday season is approaching fast and due to the ongoing pandemic more and more people are turning to online shopping. But how do you find the best coupon code while online shopping? Whether you’re shopping for a few people or shopping for a big group, we will show you how to find the best coupon code while online shopping in a few easy steps.
Getting Started to find best coupon code
Honey is a browser extension that automatically applies coupon codes on any ecommerce website. For this article, we will focus on adding a Honey extension on the Google Chrome Browser. You may also download extensions on other browsers such as Safari, Firefox, Opera and Microsoft Edge, but steps may vary slightly. You can download Google Chrome here.
Once you have Google Chrome installed on your laptop, open Google Chrome and click on the apps located at top left of the screen. From Apps, Click on Web Store. You can also click on the link here and it will take you to Honey Extension from Google Web Store.
For best practice, you can visit Google Web Store from the Browser and search for Honey extension. From the Honey page extension, click on Add to Chrome, then click Add Extension in the next pop-up.
Extension installation is fairly quick; once installation completes, Honey will walk you through some important steps. We will look at the true example at the bottom.
Loading Extension on Browser
After installation, the Honey extension icon should be visible on the top right corner. If for some reason, extension is not visible, then you can click on the small white icon which will bring out the list of the extension. Find the Honey Extension from the list and click on the pin beside Honey.
Above step should bring the Honey extension to the front, so it is easy to use when needed.
How to Use Honey Extension for online shopping
It is very easy to use Honey Extension, you would just have to shop like regular online shopping. As you do your shopping, the Honey icon on top right would turn orange with the number of potential coupon codes that can help with savings. On any regular page, the Honey icon would be visible as a grey.
Behind the scene, Honey would also look at the past prices of the product and provide the tips. For example below, when searching for the laptop on black Friday deals, Honey provided tips on what was the past price of the laptop and what is the recent price to help you make the better decisions.
Applying the Coupon code while online shopping
When there are appropriate coupons available, a small pop-up would show up on top right with how many coupons you can apply to your cart. To apply the coupons, you would have to be at the checkout window of the ecommerce site. Once you’re at the checkout simply click on Apply Coupons to apply different codes.
Once clicked on Apply Coupons, Honey will apply different coupon codes from their database and find you the lowest price available.
If there is a match for the coupon, then you have the savings in your pocket, but for some reason if Honey is not able to find any lowest price then it will show you the message of “No buyer’s remorse here“, which means you already have lowest price available for the product you’re trying to purchase.
Honey is a great extension to have for any browser, it is fast, reliable and doesn’t take up too much space and it also doesn’t require much space size on your computer. With the simple click of the button, you could be saving much needed money during an ongoing pandemic.
