CBS News: "RewardTag really is the MOST effective method for asset recovery available on the market today!”
NBC News: “RewardTag.com is a great way to get back your precious items that get lost!”
Southwest Airlines Spirit Magazine: The founders "sent a weather balloon toting a cell phone with a RewardTag on it into the skies over Los Angeles. Three months later, (they) received an email from a guy who found it while hiking in Joshua Tree National Park, 180 miles away. He sent the phone back—and refused the $100 reward.”

#1: How will the funding be used?
We’re getting orders from corporations and consumers alike, but after spending a lot of our earnings on a necessary rebranding effort, we now need to raise funds to load up on new RewardTags. We need YOUR help to raise the necessary funds to be prepared to fill big orders. The last thing we want to go through is to lose out on some of the corporate accounts because we can't afford to fill their order!
As you may be able to tell from our old homepage design in comparison to our new design (as shown in the video), we are constantly looking to improve our product. Your funding will help us to continue to establish the RewardTag product line and brand as the best online “lost and found” resource in the market!
What exactly is a RewardTag?
A RewardTag is an adhesive, durable polyester label with a unique ID number that connects the owner’s contact information, personal message, and reward offer directly to their device in case they lose it.
RewardTags make for great gifts! Each order will come with these gift envelopes. The more RewardTags you buy, the more envelopes you get, so you can share with your forgetful friends.

How does one use RewardTag?
What goes into activation?
Our customers can enter whatever contact information they want the finder to see. Options include name, email, phone number, alternate phone number (it’d be pretty tough to call someone’s phone if that’s what you found!), and zip code. The more information shared, the easier it will be for the finder to return the lost device.
For each RewardTag, our customers can offer whatever reward and personal message for the finder to see. We think that this “personal touch” is the reason why most people elect to return lost devices that have RewardTag labels on them (9 out of 10 lost devices were returned -- most within 24 hours).
And then the finder would see?:
The finder of the device can communicate directly with the owner either through the contact information displayed by the owner, or through our automated system which sends the finder’s information directly to the owner in the form of an email.
#2: More Details
What different sizes do you offer?
We currently only offer our universal sized RewardTag label, and for Indiegogo Backers, a keychain that doubles as a clothing tag for jackets and gloves. Look for bigger sizes, different shapes for watches and sunglasses, and maybe even different colors, down the road...we just need some funding!
What is the long term plan?
We want RewardTag to become a household name so that the first thing that people look for when they find a lost item is our sticker. In order to do that, we will absolutely need to increase our distribution.
This is a very grassroots project being run out of the office in Brian's little apartment, so every bit of support is greatly appreciated. As with other crowd-sourcing initiatives I will be offering rewards for different levels of support.
