Pinterest Adds Discount Notifications for Pinned Items

Pinterest is truly turning into an ecommerce player.

Today the company has announced a service that alerts Pinterest users when something they have pinned experiences a price drop. A post on the Pinterest blog tells us

You know that giddiness you get when something you’ve wanted forever is suddenly a little (or maybe a lot) cheaper? Well, we’re bringing that saving feeling to Pinterest!

In May, we made it easy for you to see the current price of pins from certain websites, but there wasn’t a simple way to tell if your coveted pin’s price dropped. Starting today, we’ll begin sending you an email when this happens. It’s rolling out slowly, so hold tight if you don’t see one right away.

Pinning Discounts

Not much else to say other than it’s a smart thing to do. What better thing would shoppers like to have than someone who is keeping an eye on bargains on their behalf?
