Unfortunately, Pinterest does not provide a way to merge accounts, but here are some options:

  1. Keep all accounts, and make sure each account is connected with an up-to-date email address
  2. Choose one account to keep and deactivate the extra accounts

Keep in mind that deactivating an account won't free up the email address on it. Each email address can only be connected to one Pinterest account at a time. If you want to free up the address on an account, change it to something else in settings before you deactivate.

If you don't have access to your original account, keep your new account and Pin things from your original account to your new one. Pinterest does't have a way to transfer or move multiple Pins, so you'll need to manually Pin each Pin.

When I try to change address on account and replace it with one I want it says it is already taken. (by me)
Expert:  GeekGal replied 9 months ago.

Sign in using the email account that you would most like to keep, then make sure that you follow your other account. Here's how to do this:

To search for a Pinner by name:

  1. Click the search bar at the top of Pinterest and enter the Pinner's name.
  2. Select the correct search result, or hit enter on your keyboard to see more results.
  3. Click the Pinners tab to see the Pinners with the name you entered.
  4. If you find the Pinner, click Follow to follow their boards.

You can then access all boards on the other account and you can recreate those same boards on the account that you want to keep.

Each email address can only be connected to one Pinterest account at a time. If you want to free up the address on an account, change it to something else ( a third email account) in settings. Then you should be able to use the freed up email address on another account.
