Tile Bluetooth Trackers Are a Must Have for Every Member of the Family This Holiday Season - Makes a Great Stocking Stuffer Idea! (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.


"Find Your Things Wherever Life Takes You"

Are you one of those people who misplaces things?  I have tried to chalk it to up to old age, but I don't think people are buying it. :-)  It seems like any given day I am misplacing my phone,  wallet, car keys, etc.  I have joked with my husband that everything I touch should have a tracking device on it so that I can find it.  Don't laugh, as you have probably misplaced something recently and had to pin it or have someone call your phone to find it.  Come on, you know you have done that.

I am not the only one in the house that is misplacing things.  Just this AM my oldest daughter was all in a tizzy trying to find one of her toys, she had been playing with the day before.  She frantically looked all over the house for it, only to have her younger sister find it sitting on her bed.  And, the other day I sent my husband to pick up the dog's medicine at the vet, and he called me at the vet's office to ask if I could give my credit card over the phone as he forgot his wallet at work...or so he hoped, as he couldn't find it.  Thankfully it was at his office -- thanks to Tile for locating it.

This holiday season, I am going to give the gift to family and friends that I know they will appreciate.  They will all be getting a Tile.  Have you heard about Tile and their line of Bluetooth trackers?  I know what you saying, "Do I really need a Bluetooth tracker?"  And, the answer is "Yes!"  With the craziness of our lives, especially with the holidays fast approaching, we are all bound to forget or misplace something.  Instead of stressing out and tearing the house apart looking for something, or going to the extreme of cancelling all your credit cards as you can't locate your wallet, just purchase a tracker from Tile, and have one less thing to worry about. For the amount of money we spend on our phones, and all the important cards we carry in our wallet, it is smart to have a tracker on these things, so that when they go missing, you can locate them.

Recently, I was sent samples of the Tile Slim and Tile Style & Sport Combo Pack to try out.  As soon as I started using them, I found myself wondering why I waited so long to get one, and how others are not jumping on the bandwagon and picking up a Tile Bluetooth tracker for their phone, wallet, etc.

Here is more about the Tile Slim (the Tile Style & Sport Combo Pack I was sent is now replaced with Pro and Mate trackers, which you can learn more about by visiting the Tile website), available now through the Tile online store, as well as through online retailers and in popular retail stores.  All Tile tracking products work in conjunction with the FREE Tile app, which you can download for both Apple and Android devices.

The Tile Slim as suggested by its name is a thin tracker -- picture two credit cards together and this is what the Tile Slim looks like.  It can fit easily in a wallet, computer bag, or even luggage tag.

I will share briefly about the Sport and Style trackers, as some retailers still sell them.  The Tile Sport and Style trackers were the newest models after the Slim version, and boasted an expanded tracking range of 200 ft. compared to the Slim).  The Sport, which comes in dark gray is a little bit larger than the Style version, which is white with gold (more stylish -- hence the Tile Style name).

Another great feature of the the Sport and Style is that these are both waterproof and dust resistant.  They are also 2 times louder, so that you can locate your misplaced/lost devices and belongings quickly.

Because my husband is prone to misplacing his wallet, I made sure to put the Tile Slim in his wallet.  It didn't take long after receiving the sample to get to try the tracker out, as he misplaced his wallet the very next day.  While he said I jinxed him, I said this is just how he is. :-)  

We pulled up the app on his phone and located the last known whereabouts of his phone.  All he had to do was follow the beeps and he found his phone.  

On this occasion, he must have knocked his wallet off the office table in the basement after placing it there when he got home, as it was under the table.

You can now ask Alexa and Siri to help you find your stuff, too!

I ended up taking the Style and Sport trackers and putting one on my iPad and the other on my key ring.  These are the two things I seem to always been misplacing.  Even though I have tracking for the iPad, I never seem to have it activated so it doesn't help when it goes missing.  

What I love about the Tile products, is that these Bluetooth trackers also offer reverse finding.  You can press the tracker -- say you have it on your key ring -- and it will ring your phones where the Tile app is installed.  This is extremely handy if you have misplaced your phone and don't have a tracker on it.  Usually I have my husband call my phone if it goes missing.  But, if he is at work, I can't get in touch with him without my phone, to help me find it.  So, in these instances, I grab my keys and push the Tile tracker, and my phone beeps until I locate it.  

Tile trackers really are a life saver, and a must have for everyone.  They are an affordable investment that will truly make your life easier and less stressful.  Come on, you know you aren't perfect, and have lost things from time to time.  Let's stop blaming it on our hectic lives or getting old.  Instead, let's let Tile help us locate our missing stuff, when the need arises.

The only downside if I had to give one about the Tile trackers I was sent (Tile Slim and the Tile Style and Sport Combo Pack) is that these particular Tile trackers all come with a 1-year non-replaceable battery.  What that means is that when the battery runs out, you can't recharge it, and you have to buy another Tile.  But, for fans of Tile products, you don't have to worry about this anymore as they now offer Pro and Mate versions that come with replaceable batteries.  

Woohoo, right!  I will definitely be buying these once the batteries in our current Tile trackers die.

With the holidays fast approaching, why not consider gifting every member of your family with a Tile.  These trackers make great stocking stuffers, and will be well received by everyone you gift one to.  My husband continues to thank for me putting the Tile Slim in his wallet, and I can't live without my Tile trackers on my keys and iPad.

I could go on and on about how great Tile products are, but instead, why not give them a try for yourself.  You will see why Tile is one of the most popular brands when it comes to shopping for Bluetooth trackers.  Head on over to to learn more.  Tile products can be purchased directly through this website, as well as Amazon and other retailers.
