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.

Chipolo CARD Spot iPhone
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.

Am I the only one that always reads Chipotle instead?

Kind of cool though, wonder if they will also sell it internationally

For those of you that still use physical wallets, what do you store in them?
Driver’s license (Ohio doesn’t have digital yet), CC’s (not everything is contactless), insurance cards (health, vision, dental, prescription - providers want a physical card), HSA debit (again, no contactless) and cash (some places I frequent are cash only)

I had the Chipolo Card Spot in my wallet, which I keep in my back pocket. I was surprised one day when I went to "Find My" to add an AirTag that the Card Spot had last been "seen" three days ago - despite being with me! It just quietly died without any notification. Also, since its lacking UWB like Apple's AirTag, you cannot enable left behind notifications that might have helped.

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.
