Honey: A Free Plugin That Can Save You Money on Photography Purchases

honey1

When shopping online, you’ve probably seen options for entering promo and discount codes during the checkout stage. Most of the time, however, you probably don’t have a suitable code to use for knocking some dollars off the purchase price. Scouring the web can sometimes do the trick, but it’s difficult to sift through the noise and find working codes.

If the experience we just described is all too familiar to you, then you should check out Honey. It’s a new browser extension that’s designed to save you money by finding and applying promo codes for you.

The concept behind the service is extremely simple. All you need to do is install a browser plugin (it’s currently only available for Chrome, but support for additional browsers is coming soon). It’s completely free, and there’s no registration required.

Once the plugin is up and running, it will add a “Find savings” button to the checkout page of online stores.

Honey works by constantly monitoring the Internet for special discount codes. It can filter through noise by seeing which codes work for its users, and then using those same codes for other users that come after.

The service is currently available for hundreds of online shops, with new ones being added regularly. While major photography retailers such as B&H or Adorama have yet to be supported (hopefully they’re added soon), there are already a number of online stores on the list that photographers frequent, including Amazon, BestBuy, Dell, NewEgg, Shutterfly, and Snapfish.

To find the entire list of supported stores, or to install the Chrome Extension and get started, head on over to the Honey website.
