Honestbee Philippines: Okay or Waley?
So my wife and I were curious to try this service. As frugal as she is (walang sawang naghahanap ng paraan para makatipid kami sa mga daily expenses namin), she wanted to take advantage of the P500 off if we purchase worth P2,500 of grocery using a friend's referral link. (You can use my code para magkaroon ka rin ng P500 off: https://honestbee.ph/r/MARKG5911)
Siguro dito na rin namin sisimulan magsulat about different ways like promos like this na ginagamit namin para kahit paano eh makatipid kaming magasawa. So watch out for more tipid tips.
Going back. So she created an account. Downloaded the HonestBee app. Signed in. Very userfriendly ng UI. May food delivery service rin sila. But let's focus on the grocery delivery service today.
They are partnered with Robinson's Supermarket. You can search via 'Department' (category) or utilize the search bar. Easy peazy. You have an option to let your shopper find a substitute for an item if it's not available or not.
So I placed my order at 9AM. Soonest available delivery time as per the app is 12noon to 1AM so I opted to that one. There's alan option to book delivery on a much later date and time. So tignan natin if magdedeliver nga sila at that time.
My total bill reached P2,970.60. Tapos may P99 na concierge fee. Tapos makikita mo na applied yung P500 off, bringing the total down to P2,569.60. And it's a very pleasing sight to see. Haha!
Suprisingly, may option din sa app to track kung ano status ng order mo. So alam mo if 'Preparing' na and if 'On the way' na yung delivery. I will add updates below as I'm writing this real-time after placing the order.
Dumating ON TIME yung delivery! Pero maling items/order yung nadala nya. So he promised to be back for our order. About 35 minutes later, he's back with all our items. My preference for meat products were also followed by my shopper.
So what can we say?PROS
-COD option is available.
-less temptation to buy more than what's on your grocery list.
-minimal concierge fee of P99.
-less hassle: no need to fall in long check out queues; no getting stuck in traffic; no need to spend for gas and parking.
-madalas sila magbigay ng coupons at generous yung discount amount.
-discount was still applied kahit na after mawala yung ilang items sa list kasi out of stock
-bawal siguro to sa mga maseselan lalo sa mga fresh food nila kasi iba pa rin na ikaw mismo namimili ng vegetables, meat and seafood.
-expect some out of stock items. If you need things that are very essential or urgent, we don't suggest you use the service
BONG&ONG VERDICT? OOOOKAY!This is not a paid review for the app or service.
We're not in any way connected to HonestBee.
