Memorial Day sales provide an excellent opportunity to snatch great products for cheap. If you’re looking for some of the best tracking devices on the market, you’ll want to check out this Tile Mate deal.
Presently, Amazon is selling the Tile Mate Essentials 4-pack for $68 (opens in new tab). This 15% discount presents an all-time low price. Those seeking an alternative to the Apple AirTags would do well to jump on this sale before it expires.
Despite the presence of Apple and Samsung’s trackers, Tile has remained at the top of our best key finder rankings, thanks to its mix of value and features, plus the fact that Tiles work with both iOS and Android phones.
With the latest overhaul to its product lineup, Tile hopes to stay ahead of its competition. The current lineup of Tiles introduces a new unified look across the lineup, with improvements to both range and alert volume. And the four trackers offered in this sale won’t be Tile’s last word on the subject. A fifth Tile key finder is set to debut next year that will offer Ultra-Wideband connectivity for more precise location data, matching a feature found in Apple AirTag and the Samsung SmartTag Plus.
If you’re familiar with Tile’s lineup of trackers, you’ll notice something different about the latest product lineup. Whereas the old tile Pro, Tile Mate, Tile Slim and Tile Sticker each had their distinctive looks, the new versions have a unified design. That means Tile logos are prominently displayed on each tracker; on every device but the Tile Sticker (2021), the logo doubles as a button you can press twice to find the location of your phone.
The new versions work as past models have. The tracker connects to your phone via Bluetooth, and you use a companion app (Android, iOS) to tap the misplaced item and sound an alarm. Each Tile has a two-way tracking feature that lets you press a button twice to make your phone ring. AirTag lacks that feature, and it’s a way the assorted Tile trackers continue to stand out.
The Tile Pro and Tile Mate are best for keyrings and purses, while the Tile Slim is perfectly shaped to slip inside a wallet. The Tile Sticker is for tracking the sorts of things that don’t offer an easy way of attaching a Bluetooth beacon. Again, these are some of the best trackers you can buy.
Be sure to check out all the best Memorial Day sales this weekend to save on everything from phones and TVs to mattresses and outdoor furniture.
