How Tile Wallet Finder helped me get my lost wallet back twice

"I was to leave a month for a business trip in Indochina, so my wife and I were taking our tandem bike for a quick parting date. On our way back, we stopped by the local ATM to pick up cash. My wallet was gone. My work credit cards were now lost – the day before I really was going to need it. Fortunately, my father-in-law was one of the backers of the Tile Crowd-funding, and he gifted one of his Tiles to me as a late Christmas present.

We whipped out my wife's iPhone, and it lead us directly to my lost wallet which simply fell out of my pocket while we were walking our bike. I can't believe the tile worked so magically for me.

Another detail of the story is that someone had picked up my wallet and brought it into a local store, which happened to be an 'intimate' type store. They called the only number in my wallet. My parents. After handing my wife the chiming wallet I called up my folks to them up to tell them I had already recovered my wallet from the adult shop and to ask them why they hadn't contacted me. Apparently the answering machine message was unintelligible.

The Tile is faster than the good samaritan. Thank you tile people!"
