Tile Mate iOS/Android Bluetooth Item Tracker For Just $12.49 After $12.50 Price Drop From Amazon

This was selling for $24.99 yesterday and is now the lowest price ever from Amazon.

You should always keep a tracker like an Airtag, Galaxy Smart Tag, or Tile Mate in your checked and carry-on luggage (as well as teffilin, purses, etc.), it can even be a good idea to leave one in your car! We get stories of lost tefilin nearly week and they are only rarely located. Having a tracker in your bag will make finding them much more likely!

I had a Tile Mate in our BabyBjörn Travel Crib’s bag and the bag’s straps were torn when they were checked as luggage on a United flight. United sent the bag to Rynn’s Luggage in Dallas to be repaired, but the repaired bag came back without the tracker.

I guess it’s a good reminder to remove it before a bag is repaired…or is it not?

I contacted United, who looped in Rynn’s Luggage, who asked for more information to help find the tracker. The Tile Mate moved locations daily and I sent them the tracking info to try to locate it:



They even called me to sound an alert on the device so they could try to find it.

In the end, they were not able to locate the device, but they authorized United to compensate me, and United offered me a choice of either a $75 travel certificate or 3,750 miles.

All’s well that ends well!

Is this better, worse or the same as the AirTag?


I combine the use of an AirTag+TilePro onto a joint keyring when I want checked-in items tracked. AirTags work more comprehensively at airports and on flights than Tile, but beyond the airport I find they compliment each other in terms of functionality for tracking/locating. Even at airports they can compliment each other.

While I have some standalone AirTags and standalone Tiles, I have a bunch of pre-paired up AirTag+TilePro keyrings that I toss into items that I want tracked but for which a GPS cell/satellite based tracker is less practical.


Cool story.


About time that pixel have a good option


Motorola, chipolo, and Pebblebee just announced trackers that work on Android find my network and meant for android


I’ve had both and it is not even close. AirTag is far superior!


But on airtag you can’t see history, only where it is now


You don’t get the history (periodical movement) of Tile tracker either except when buying a Tile subscription plan that has that feature.

With AirTags, some have rigged up their own history tracking method but it’s not an off-the-shelf commercial solution like it is with Tile.


The only thing I don’t like about it is that they charge you monthly fee in order to see device history more than a day old
Unless there is some app that allows you to track history for free


What is the cost to upgrade to a premium plan …seems you need to be on that plan to get reimbursed


I have a tile in my kids backpack so I can see when his bus is coming home. I find it pretty ineffective as it sometimes won’t update for a few hours, making it pointless


It didn’t let me add to cart, but now did. Thank you!


I put one on a lanyard and make my child wear it when they walk to a friend’s house in the neighborhood!


Do we need the charge the trackers all the time?

We have 4 of the Samsung Galaxy tags and it’s good, (wish I had it in my tefillin bag when I lost them in Poland last year but I have them in my tefillin and talit bag now).

Do you not like those?
