How does Honey make money?
"In some cases, when you use a coupon code or earn Honey Gold with Honey, we earn a small commission from the merchant. We pass along some of those earnings to our members.

We never sell data or give your information to third parties, either. Please take the time to read our privacy policy. If you have additional questions, reach out to us directly."

Terms of Use


Really promising. To be frank with you: I didn't expect it.

Letter from our founders
We do not sell personal information about anyone who uses our services. Ever. That wouldn’t be fair.
Our stance on privacy is simple: We will be transparent with what data we collect and how we use it to save you time and money, and you can decide if you’re good with that.
Privacy Policy


In my opinion it isn't worth to give up your privacy to save some money.

Privacy Policy


Honey ignores "Do not Track" requests. At least they are honest, right?

Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites. Honey’s products do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity while you are using Honey’s products in the manner described above. However, if you are in the European Economic Area, we will only use cookies that are not strictly necessary with your consent.
