Money Making Apps for the SAHM, WAHM, or Anyone with a Pulse! Part Three: Honey
Here is an example of a really good cash back deal I got during school supply shopping time:
Office Depot/Office Max was running their 1 cent, 50 cents, dollar special that they do yearly. I waited to buy supplies until the special ran. Honey was running a promotion for an extra 1,000 ($10) Honey Gold bonus when you bought at Office Max and a 1% Honey Gold reward rate. Honey then also found me a promo code for 30% off of non-sale items for my purchase. I ended up with a starting purchase price of $86.00 for school supplies for two kiddos. The Honey promo code that was added took my price down to $74.00. The Honey Gold I got back was the $10.00 promotional credit PLUS $0.74 in the 1% Honey Gold reward rate. That means with the Office Max deals Honey found and the stackable rewards promotions from Honey, my school supplies for two kids (and I mean EVERYTHING but backpacks) ended up being $63.26. I mean getting school supplies done for 2 kids for around $30 a piece is UNHEARD of. And it's all thanks to Honey!!!
Another great money-saving feature of Honey that is going to be very useful is the Honey Droplist feature. Say you're looking for a specific item for Christmas, for example, the Nintendo Switch. Go to Amazon and search for the Nintendo Switch (make sure your Honey extension is ENABLED on your browser). You can click to view the item's price history and if you click the h+ sign (see pic) you can actually have Honey monitor the price of that item for the next 60 days AND alert you when it's at it's cheapest!!!! How amazing is that?!
|Hit that h+ and monitor the price y'all!!!|
In short, Honey Gold is absolutely worth its weight in Gold (see what I did there?). It helps build your reserve AND save you money. It needs to be on your money saving list. But, please, use your laptop or desktop to do your Christmas shopping so you can maximize your deals!!!
