Apple to Begin Selling AirTag Competitor Chipolo's CARD Spot for Wallets
Apple's online store will begin selling the Chipolo CARD Spot on Tuesday, March 14, according to a Chipolo spokesperson. Like the AirTag, the CARD Spot supports Apple's Find My app. The circular Chipolo ONE Spot will not be sold by Apple.
Priced at $35, the Chipolo CARD Spot is a card-shaped item tracker designed for use with wallets. The accessory allows you to easily track the location of a wallet in the Items tab of the Find My app on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Apple does not offer a card-shaped version of the AirTag, giving the CARD Spot a unique advantage for wallets. For additional information, read our hands-on review of the CARD Spot published last year.
Apple launched the AirTag in April 2021, and the hardware has not been updated since. Apple did refresh its AirTag accessories lineup last week.
Update: The Chipolo CARD Spot is now available on Apple's online store.

Kind of cool though, wonder if they will also sell it internationally
Another downside is that it was frequently beeping and making noises when I'd sit down - the Card Spot has a button on it unlike Apple's Airtag.
I had used a Tile Slim Tracker for years in the same wallet. It too had the beeping problem, but it lasted years vs 22 days for the Chipolo.
