Planning on some summer travel? Make sure you know where your luggage is! A vacation can be ruined if you arrive at your destination but your luggage doesn't. But even if the airline loses track of where your things are, the right sort of tracker — like an Apple AirTag — can help you locate it. In fact, this little guy can keep you from losing all sorts of items.
If you're not familiar with Apple AirTags, they're tracking devices a little bigger than a 50-cent piece. You can drop them in your purse or get special key rings to attach them to other items you might misplace. Just open your Find My app to track their location. The tech is very sophisticated — you can see exactly where they are at any time. Over 97,000 shoppers have given the device a five-star rating.
"I bought an AirTag holder for a cat collar, and I get to track where my cats are," shared one rave reviewer. "It helps me know when the cats are at the neighbors on the left of the house, right of the house, back or front, or across the street so I know where to call them."
If you have several items you don't want to lose or if there's a family vacay in the works, get yourself the four-pack — a tremendous value at just $22 each.
Of course, you don't have to get an Apple AirTag — Tile has been making tracking quality devices for a while. My husband is a devoted Android user and happens to misplace things all the time, so I gifted him a multipack of Tile trackers. Let's just say these guys saved our holidays — and for others afflicted with the same problem, the Tile Mate has saved more than just the holidays.
"Bought this for my BF who loses his keys every friggin' day," shared one of over 20,000 five-star fans. "Now, while I loved the daily goose chase, I couldn’t help but get annoyed at the simple fact that he’d literally lose his keys every day. Obviously, he’s not a fan of the key hook by the door; that would be too easy and make sense. So for now, I owe so much to this Tile ... for saving my relationship."
There's also the Tile Sticker, which is designed to attach to items on a semi-permanent basis. It's smaller than the Tile Mate to make it more discreet.
"I had my attorney draw up divorce papers because my wife could never put the TV remote back where it belongs," wrote a rave reviewer. "Sometimes the remote was under the couch cushions. Sometimes it was in a kitchen drawer. Sometimes, it would be upstairs. It drove me absolutely insane. But she decided to buy this Tile device for me one day, and it has saved our marriage. I haven’t felt that level of rage in a long time."
Samsung also makes the SmartTag, which shoppers love — it's similar to the Tile Mate and has a spot to attach it to a keyring.
"Saved me from waiting 10 hours in line during the U.S. airline-flight-cancellation catastrophe of Holiday Season 2022," shared one rave reviewer. "I was able to know exactly where my precious ski gear was, take a nap, eat, and make preparations for my new way home while others waited. I was able to leave the airport, find a hotel for the night, and make bus [and] train arrangements for the next morning."
