Whenever I lose something, I kick myself for not doing a better job of labelling it, so the finder can return it, if they're so inclined.
So an offer by Trackitback to sell me five of their lost-and-found return stickers for a total of $20 was too good to resist. (No one in the family needs to know in advance which of their presents will have a free return sticker on it.)
The sticker I put on my digital camera last year doesn't guarantee it will get returned, but it makes it easier for someone to be a good samaritan if they find the camera. I also added a cash reward, so if someone does return the camera, they'll get about 10% of the value of the camera as thanks.
And here's the best part. Trackitback has a dirt cheap shipping price for people who aren't in a hurry to get their stickers. Plus, they billed my credit card in Canadian dollars, saving me the currency conversion fee I get charged when I pay in US dollars.
A no-brainer for a Canadian company to let its customers pay in their own currency? You'd think so, but there are plenty of companies that don't give you the option.
I have no idea when the Stocking Stuffer Special ends, but there's a $30 5-pack also available. Even at the regular $10 per sticker price, Trackitbacks are worth it, if they save you replacing even one electronic gadget in your arsenal.
And yes, I do believe there a lot of people out there who would return a lost camera or laptop if they found it. Just check out the overflowing lost and found boxes in stores, schools and other public places if you don't believe me.
Trackitback is franchised in most English speaking countries, plus Portugal and Mexico. Items found in any country in the world will be returned, if the finder contacts Trackitback.
