I’ve always had a bad habit of losing my stuff.
I mean, it’s largely because I carry too much stuff, but Murphy’s Law runs true, and the things you lose are often the ones that matter most. Keys. Wallets. Phones. Jewelry. We’re so caught up in our hectic days that it’s easy to lose track of the things we put down. Or notice when something falls out of our pockets. Heck—we could be falling apart and not notice ’til it’s too late.
I mean, it’s 2016 and—thank goodness—we’re able to track our handheld devices just about anywhere on the globe… but why can’t we do that with our other stuff?
Presenting the Tile Mate — Your New Counter to Kleptomaniacs and Absentmindedness Alike!
Built to help protect the things we care about most, Tile’s Tile Mate is a mighty device in a tiny package making it easier to find your valuables when they become woefully misplaced!
Measuring an impressively small 11cm², the Tile Mate’s loaded with a number of features that help make missing possessions a thing of the past:
- tiny speakers that play a loud melody heard even when under piles of laundry or several rooms away;
- when you’re too far to hear it, the Tile App remembers your Tile Mate’s last location… even if you don’t;
- for those of us prone to misplacing our phones, you can double-click your Tile Mate and make a noise on your phone—even on silent mode;
- and my favourite feature—if your Tile Mate’s lost or stolen, you can set your Tile App to notify you when any other Tile gets near it. So the more Tiles people buy, the more chance you find your lost possession! How cool is that?!
So theoretically, for $25 or less a Tile, you can buy yourself some peace of mind. And at a cost far cheaper than the time, effort and money it takes to replace the things we work so hard to get.
The one downside? It uses proprietary battery technology to keep itself going. So while there’s zero upkeep—no charging or cords required—that battery lasts a year, and you can’t replace it yourself once it’s through. Instead, you send Tile your old Tile Mate through their reTile program, and get a new one sent back at up to 30% off!
The Tile Mate — So Great I Have to Give it Away!
So I believe in Tile. I believe there’s value in being able to find your stuff with a single button press, and I look forward to life without asking Sarah where the car keys are every time I want to go out. Whether you use it on your everyday items that you simply couldn’t do without or those costly gifts you found waiting under the tree, the Tile Mate’s simple to use and effective, with so many ways to keep on top of your stuff.
And one of you will win a set of four to call your very own!
The gang at Tile graciously gave me a Tile Mate 4-pack to give away, knowing that if I had issues holding onto my stuff, there’re likely many more in my audience suffering the same. It just takes a click and a valid email address to enter, but you increase your chances exponentially if you try some of the optional methods!
Many will enter, one will win—good luck if you choose to do so! (Contest open to Canadians aged 18+ living outside of Quebec. Contest closes 12/31 @ 11:59 PM ET.)
Some Things You Lose and Can Never Get Back. For Everything Else, There’s Tile Mate.
Why make things harder for ourselves? It’s not as if we’re made of money. So why not feel a little short-term pain for some huge long-term gains and put a Tile Mate on the things that matter most?
Let’s start a new year making some great decisions!
Keep your stuff safe and until the next, I remain,
Disclaimer: Tile supplied me with a Tile Mate for review, but I’ve wanted to explore geotracking services for a while anyway, so it was a solid fit. Good luck to those who enter!
