Pinterest gets slightly creepy yet helpful
I can't (or won't) admit to how much time I spend pinning tiny photos of beautiful things because then I'd have to admit I have a problem. I'm sure my 1,000 + pins tell the sad, sad story of my addiction on their own.
But, besides being a major boredom buster and sometimes drug, Pinterest has served a purpose in my life. It has helped me make a few new recipes (some more successfully than others) and it encouraged me to stretch my DIY muscle with a few new crafty decorations that now adorn my house. And it has acted as a dream closet throughout it all.
Well, now, it can serve another purpose.
It can tell you when your long forgotten pins go on sale!
My friend Stephanie got an e-mail this morning from her Pinterest account. Subject line: Your pin's price dropped!
She opened it to read: Hi, Stephanie!
Today your pin is 30 % less.
In her case, it was a gorgeous deep v dress from Revolve Clothing. It was obviously a dream closet pin because even with the 30 percent price drop the dress is still more than $100. Plus, that deep v. Hello, where do people wear these things?
But, it is kind of funny (or creepy) that there is some bot somewhere watching what we pin and checking up on things for us. I'm not sure if this is a new feature for Pinterest or if it's only a deal they have for some retailers, but you can turn the feature on or off in the preferences area of your Pinterest account.
We can only hope that someday it will tell us something fabulous that we pinned has gone on super clearance.
