Tired of (Alt-) tabbing through 10 travel sites in a laborious attempt to score the cheapest flight to your cousin's small engine repair school graduation? Wish there was an easier way to compare flights online? Well, now you can close nine of those 10 browser windows and hit Pintrips, an online tool that lets you search for and pin flights to a single dashboard.
After installing the browser plug-in, create your first trip by plugging in the deets for one of eight travel sites (Kayak, Delta, Orbitz, etc.).
Wait a minute, that looks exactly like the Kayak page! Well, that's because it is, just now with fancy "Pin" buttons for each flight. Choose the ones that look good and it'll post to your dashboard.
Here's where things get crazy: not only can you see all of your potential flights on one dashboard (rather than in the aforementioned 10 browser windows), but Pintrips will automatically update flight prices and availability in real time. Come back tomorrow and you may be going to the ATL for less than this $313.
If you're trying to coordinate your flight with a couple of buddies, just share your dashboard and pin, then compare flights together. And if you want to make your case for taking Delta in order to snag double SkyMiles, just jump on the online chat.
And now that you've just spent two minutes reading about Pintrips, why not watch one of those clever short videos that new online startups always create to show you how easy it is to use?
