Apple AirTags Are on Sale at Amazon This Weekend
The summer of 2023 is going to be a big one. And by that, I mean it’s expected to break travel records, with nearly 42.3 million Americans expected to travel for the Memorial Day weekend alone. With such a sea of travelers passing through airports around the globe, luggage can inevitably get lost. It’s a heartache many of us have endured, and it can be a lot easier if you have luggage trackers like Apple AirTags to help you find your stuff at all times.
As a travel editor, these reliable little Bluetooth-enabled trackers have given me so much peace of mind in keeping track of my valuables that I now recommend them to all my friends. And I don’t know about you, but I’m taking the start of summer as a sign to stock up on my already large supply of Apple AirTags — especially when the Apple AirTag four-pack is on rare sale for under $90 this weekend.
To buy: amazon.com, $87 for a 4-pack (originally $99)
These top-rated Apple devices couldn’t be easier to use. Even I, a self-proclaimed technophobe, was able to connect Bluetooth devices to my iPhone quickly and with zero stress. As long as you have an iPhone 6s or newer, just place the tag on the item you want to track, follow the one-touch setup instructions, and voilà, you can instantly see your stuff in your phone’s Find My app. .
I already have four AirTags on hand to track my most valuable things, including one for my luggage, one for my travel luggage, one for the car (I always forget where it is in the parking garage) – heck, even I attached a collar to my dog to make sure if she ever gets lost I can find her! But I don’t intend to stop there. I’m already looking at more for my bag, key chain, work card badge and gifts for my travel friends.
Measuring 1.6 inches by 1.6 inches by 0.31 inches and 0.39 ounces each, these coin-like AirTags are so light and compact, you barely notice they’re there anymore. The only time I remember is when I’m actively looking for something – usually my car. Although I often look for it in a parking garage, it also comes in handy for more rare cases of theft and towing emergencies. Take it from me: Last year before I bought these tags, my car was suddenly towed after being hit while parked in the driveway – and the next morning, I had no idea where it was. Suffice to say, I immediately bought one of these.
Since I’ve been using Apple AirTags, thankfully I haven’t lost any luggage (I’m always alert via my phone if I have to check my luggage at the gate). But if I do, at least I’ll have the peace of mind of knowing where in the world they end up so I know how to track them down, at least according to success stories from other professional travelers I know.
By the way, these have a lithium battery, but they’re small enough that you’re allowed to take them on most planes, so stock up on carry-on essentials, too. The AirTag alone isn’t for sale right now, but if you want to try one out, they’re less of an investment at $28 each. For the record, this Amazon deal on the four-pack is pretty great because it means they come down to about $22 each.
To buy: amazon.com, $28
I’m not surprised that on Amazon, these travel saviors have 59,900 five-star reviews. One traveler who admitted, “I really don’t know how I lived this long without these,” said “They come in handy when flying; I noticed that at the departure airport my bags were marked as left behind.” I agree – I personally like the feature that tells you when you’ve left an item behind.It’s helped my fiance remember his wallet on more than one occasion.
Another shopper said they were even able to track their stolen wallet thanks to this device. “It led me straight to the right car in the parking lot,” they said, adding that AirTags have saved me so much time and stress. I love being able to easily check my app and see that all my gear and important items are with me.”
Seriously, if you’re not already traveling with Apple AirTags — or even using these tracking devices to keep an eye on your valuables in everyday life — you’re missing out. Whether you’re a loyal Apple fan or testing the waters this summer, now’s a great time to pick up a four-pack while they’re on sale on Amazon.
At the time of publication, pricing started at $87 for a 4-pack.
