Trackitback Now Available at Office Depot Canada

Trackitback's Lost & Found Products Now Available at Office Depot Canada Attention: Business/Financial Editor, Lifestyle Editor, News Editor, Tech/Telecomm Editor, Travel/Tourism Editor WINNIPEG, MANITOBA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2005) - Trackitback, North America's leading lost and found service provider, is partnering with Office Depot Canada to sell its lost and found products, used for cell phones, cameras, MP3 players, BlackBerrys, portable DVD players, laptop computers and other portable devices.

Trackitback uses a coded ID label and reward system to reunite lost items like cell phones, cameras, MP3 players and laptops with their owners-all the while safeguarding the consumer's identity.

"Trackitback is a natural accessory for any consumer who owns a cell phone, camera or laptop," says Scott W. Howard, director of merchandising for Office Depot Canada. "By using Trackitback, our customers are able to protect their devices and the often irreplaceable data contained within. Trackitback provides our customers with peace of mind."

Here's how Trackitback works:

1. Customers affix Trackitback ID labels to their personal items and register the unique ID code through Trackitback's Web (or by calling the company's toll free number, which is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.)
2. When a registered item is lost, the ID label instructs the finder to call the toll free number provided on the Trackitback label. (If they prefer, they may use the Web site.)
3. Trackitback makes all arrangements for the item's safe return to its rightful owner and does not charge any additional shipping or recovery fees incurred in the process.
4. Finders who report lost items receive a reward-a free pack of ten ID labels plus any optional cash reward the owner may have provided. (75 percent of Trackitback clients offer a $25 or more cash reward.)

Trackitback ID labels are available for $9.99 each and last for the life of the product they are protecting. In addition to Office Depot Canada, Canadian consumers can find Trackitback's lost and found products at more than 1,500 retail locations, including London Drugs, Staples Business Depot, Best Buy, Future Shop, Henry's and A&B Sound.
