#1 – It’s a Wonderful Life (PG) – 2 hours, 10 minutes

Starring Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed.

Honey App Review: Does It Really Save Money?

Many years of finding deals online have helped me become a very savvy online shopper. I’m a whiz at searching for coupon codes, cashback opportunities, and the best possible price.

My husband knows that when he wants to buy something online, it’s worth me looking at his cart to see if I can find any coupon codes or other ways to save.

I like the hunt of finding good deals, but I also like saving time.

That’s where extensions like the Honey app come in – they use the power of price tracking, crowdsourcing, and relationships with retailers to find deals that even I can’t find on my own.

I decided to give the Honey app a try myself to see how easily it could help me save.

Name: Honey

Description: A free extension that helps you save money when you checkout several at online stores.

Overall
4.5
