I went into a JB Hifi shop the other day and explored current specials on Android smartphones. It was good to go into the shop and touch and feel these devices and see some of their features but I was surprised to hear that they had no stock for one particular range of these phones!
I was hoping to leave the shop with the phone but sadly left without it. My options were to visit a shop which “apparently” had them in stock (a 40 minute drive away) or I could order it online. Of course I could order it online, why didn’t I do that first? Because I thought I’d walk out of the shop with it that day. Then I realised why PayPal bought Honey for $4 Billion..
PayPal purchased Honey for Shop Discount Coupons & Deals
When I heard about PayPals big purchase of this company for $4B I had to explore it to figure out why. PayPal is now getting attacked by companies like Stripe, Square and even WooCommerce and Facebook in the digital payment space so they’re obviously looking at something that adds value for their business, and it’s all about online businesses and online shopping!
I’m glad I did explore Honey, which have a Chrome extension that you can install on your browser, because when I reached the product information page for the Samsung Galaxy A71 at JB Hifi it showed me where I could buy the phone else for much cheaper and save almost $200!
Saving Money Doing Things Online
I was using Honey to see if I could find a discount coupon code to save money buying a smartphone from JB Hifi online but I ended up on a journey looking for deals and discounts to save money on JB Hifi as well as any other retailer that had that phone available for sale!
In these times of isolation and working remotely from home it’s easy and convenient to order online and you save a lot of time and money because you don’t have to drive, park, browse and buy – you can just click and pay! But better still these discount and promo codes can save you even more money and that is important in times like now when almost half of the Australian population are on JobSeeker or JobKeeper payments!
