While I have never used TrackItBack.com before, it has been mentioned many times in other travel blogs as a way to recover lost items while traveling. Essentially it is a service that sells ID labels which provides a toll free phone number and reward for the lost item’s return. If an item is found, the finder can ship it back for free. It essentially increases your chance of a lost item to be recovered, helps facilitates the return of the item, and makes it so you do not have to include your personal information on the item.
Since I lost my camera on my 2nd to last day on my honeymoon last year in Bali (yes, I know, it was horrible and a lesson learned), I have been thinking about signing up for TrackItBack, but thought it was kind of expensive. Today, however, I received an email from EverSave (another deal-a-day site) that you can get 80% off one of their services. For $20 you can get five portable device-recovery tags ($100 value).
This particular deal will give you 5 TrackItBack stickers of all different sizes. These can be applied to cell phones, cameras, video cameras, Ipods, etc.
One thing to note: If you are looking to take advantage of the US Airways Grand Slam promotion, TrackItBack is one of the partners to receive a “hit”. Purchasing this deal will not give you a “hit” for the promotion as you need to redeem your voucher through a specific site. To qualify for the Grand Slam promotion, you must purchase your TrackItBack service through the US Airways Dividend Miles portal. Essentially, you are not able to double-dip.
