A New Way to Save With Pinterest
Posted on Monday, August 5th, 2013 at 7:00 am
There are plenty of different ways that a person can use Pinterest. It is designed so that you can pin things that you find to be interesting, pretty, or useful. Lots of people have started using Pinterest to keep track of ways to save, ideas for frugal recipes, and guides that show how to repurpose items.
Now, there is a new way to save money by using Pinterest. In order to make this work you need to pin products that you would love to purchase (if only they were less expensive) to your Pinterest. You may already be doing that! Some people have entire Pinterest boards that are basically “wish lists” of things they want to buy.
Start by logging in to your Pinterest account. Next, visit the website for your favorite store. Find an item that you adore! Look for the Pinterest button near that item. Clicking it will allow you to add it to your Pinterest. You will have the opportunity to select which board you want that pin to go into.
Someday, that item might go on sale. If this happens, Pinterest will send you an email to inform you that the product you love just got a little less expensive. This is a new system that Pinterest is rolling out, so you may need to wait a bit before you get an email about a sale.
It also appears that not all products are included in this notification system. According to the Pinterest Blog, there are currently tens of millions of pins with price details on them. It doesn’t hurt to start pinning cool things to your Pinterest board. You just might get an email notification when they go on sale!
