Near impossible to trust attribution.
"Honey and other deal sites and discount extensions have made it near impossible for us to trust attribution for our marketing spend, including affiliate partnerships, email sponsorships, and podcasts."
Major problem for our business.
"Coupon extensions have been a major problem for our business for quite some time. When they scrape discount codes and share them it negatively impacts our profit margins. We've spent way too much time trying to solve this."
Watching like a hawk.
“We had to manually watch coupon codes like a hawk, staying on top of every usage and raising a flag anytime a code rose above an expected usage threshold. This was no small task over many hundreds of codes.”
Coupon extensions are like parasites.
"These coupon extensions are like parasites. They pop up at checkout—the 'last mile' of the customer journey—and decrease our profit margins while providing no value in referring traffic or building our brand.”
Hard to believe it is legal.
"I recently discovered Honey was sharing coupons specifically designed only for verified, returning customers to our site without permission. I find it difficult to believe that this is even legal but hey, that's the internet. "
Whether you like it or not.
"It appears that [Honey] has no way to (or are unwilling to) allow stores to opt-out of the honey ecosystem. They have dodged my questions about this time and time again. Whether you like it or not, the Honey app will extract, store and share any coupon used by your customers who have the Honey extension running on their browser."
