Trying to find your car keys or wallet before you leave for work is a nerve-wracking experience. You’re stressed out and frantically trying to find something you need, while you’re also worrying about being late for work or getting stuck in traffic. Trust us, it’s not a good way to start your day. 

We’ve written about Tile’s Mate Bluetooth trackers extensively, and we’ve long extolled their virtues as a smart home device that can make your life so much easier. Wouldn’t you want to gift that same experience to a friend or loved one?

A Mate 8-pack is now on sale for $90 off and comes with a free Amazon Echo Dot. For real? For real.

For the uninitiated, here’s how it works: Simply attach the Tile Mate to any personal belonging, such as your car keys, wallet, or inside of a purse. When you can’t find it in your home, use the Tile app on your iOS or Android smartphone to quickly find them. That’s it! When the Mate is within 150 feet of your Bluetooth-enable device, it will play a loud ringtone when activated until you find the missing item. 

If it’s your smartphone you can’t find, then double tap the Tile Mate itself to set off your smartphone’s ringtone — even if it’s in silent mode. The new model of the Mate now has a replaceable battery, so if it ever dies, you can easily replace it.

This Tile + Amazon promotion also includes an all-new Echo Dot for free. This is Amazon’s mini smart home device that features the Alexa voice assistant to help you with just about anything, like reading the news, ordering a pizza, or giving you weather updates. It’s also a small, but mighty, Bluetooth speaker.

In fact, you can pair the Echo Dot and Alexa with the Tile Mate to help you find what you need even faster. You can just say things like “Alexa, ask Tile to find my keys” or “Alexa, ask Tile for the location of my wallet” and the Amazon assistant will activate the Mate’s ringtone.

After you purchase the Tile Mate eight-pack, Tile will give you a special promo code for a free Echo Dot to redeem on Amazon.com.
