Best Buy Card Spam Added to Pinterest Boards

All over the main page and even added to my All About Pinterest Board

The option to edit the Pins on this board is not even available. I am not able to delete this Best Buy Pin or any others on this board. Other boards that do not have this Pin seem to be fine and completely editable.

    To get rid of the pin, just type edit/ at the end of the string in your browser bar after the last backslash and you’ll get to your edit menu.

    Hi! I just had this very same thing happen to me. I ended up having to delete the entire board that had the mysterious Best Buy pin. So frustrating!

      Oh I am so sorry to hear that. If it happens again (and I REALLY hope it does not)

      Angela’s response was the only thing that worked for me. Typing edit did not!

      When I found it on my boards it did not have the option to edit the Pin. But the /edit worked for me.

    This just appeared on my page too. I found your blog while googling it. Another pinterest user posted a comment on how to delete it: click on the pin and add “edit” (without quotation marks) to the address in your url bar. That will get you to the pop-up edit page.
