We all know Honey. The money saving browser extension, (sounds familiar doesn’t it?) that seems to have bought out every youtuber that hasn’t already been taken by Raid Shadow Legends. A quick recap, Honey works by automatically attempting to apply coupons whenever you check out in an online store. Naturally, Amazon is the biggest spotlight for Honey to shine, with an avid coupon market, you’re bound to save money using Honey, right? We’ll from my experience, it almost never finds a coupon for what I want. Conflicts of interest aside, for the average person, It’s worth a shot anyways on the off-chance that savememoney2021 will be a valid coupon code for my new socks.
However shoppers may have noticed a new panel on the Amazon home page, titled simply “Coupons”. Amazon Coupons is a center full of products with verified active coupons created by Amazon. Now the chance you’re going to find something you were already looking for in the Amazon coupon bin is slim, but that’s not the point. People love to buy when they think they’re getting a good deal, even if they don’t even need what they are purchasing. Amazon coupons is not like Honey, which at least attempts to save you money. Amazon coupons is there to draw you into a good deal. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the site, there are a lot of great deals on there. It just shouldn’t be seen as a replacement or ‘solution’ to Honeys popularity. If you’re in the mood for some shopping, then Amazon Coupons is the place for you.
