Facebook Testing $4 Discounts On Gifts

Facebook’s latest attempt to promote its gifts feature involves a test of discounts of as high as 80 percent.

CNET reported that some users on the social network are seeing messages alongside birthday notifications offering users the chance to “get $4 off your gift” of $5 or more.

Facebook confirmed to CNET that the discount offers on gifts were part of a test, but the social network would not reveal additional details.
