If you’ve ever experienced the pain and upset of losing your luggage, your smartphone or even your house keys, then you’ll appreciate ReturnMe.
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is ReturnMe – Return Lost Items To Rightful Owners.
What is it?
ReturnMe is the world’s largest lost & found company.
They provide tags that you can attach to any item to help that item get back to you if it is lost.
How much does it cost?
ReturnMe offers a variety of tags from different items, including luggage tags (costing $9.99), a gadget pack ($19.99) and a family pack ($58.99).
How ReturnMe returns lost items to rightful owners
I’ve written before about the lessons I learned from losing my laptop computer. Over the years I’ve lost electronics, gadgets and even keys — and it’s always a painful experience.
Gadgets such as the Bluetooth-enabled MYNT ES allow you to keep track of your things nearby.
But what happens if you lose your item altogether?
ReturnMe is a lost & found company that aims to return lost items to rightful owners.
It works like this. You purchase a ReturnMe tag for your physical items. For example, I’ve attached a tag to my luggage.
If your item gets lost, then whoever finds the item can read the tag and contact ReturnMe (encouraged by a $40 reward).
They then contact you and arranges to ship the lost item back to you at no cost to you.
Their service claims that over 80% of items protected by a security tag get returned within 24 hours.
ReturnMe also offers an app for Android and iOS that lets you keep track of your tags.
How can I get it?
