What's sweeter than saving big bucks during some sweet Labor Day sales? Honey, of course! (And not the stuff bees make...)

Honey is a popular tool that can automatically dig up and apply coupon codes for thousands of online stores. (CNET)

Voted one of the more highly rated Google Chrome extensions, Honey aims to help you save money on sites from Amazon to Forever 21 and almost everything in between.

After you enable the extension, Honey automatically finds and applies the absolute best coupons to your cart so you walk away with the most money saved in your pocket. Time Magazine even said, "It's basically like free money," because all you have to do is install, turn it on, and whenever you're on a shopping site, it'll automatically pop up that there are codes, or you could manually click it to see if there are savings.

Oh, and if you're someone who really loves Amazon, you'll be happy to know that Honey can...

Get the best deal while automatically comparing every seller in the Amazon Marketplace. (Honey)
