Amazon’s Wi-Fi enabled Dash buttons are finally here, turning your home into a veritable vending machine for essential home items like laundry soap, pet food, paper towels, and more.
Better yet, when you order one — each costs about $5 — you’ll get your five bucks back the first time you use it to purchase an item from Amazon, making the buttons essentially free.
Amazon’s new Dash button service lets you order (and re-order) your favorite items with the press of a button. Out of Gatorade? Simply press the button, which sticks to any hard surface in your home. You’ll just connect the Dash button to Wi-Fi and access it through the Amazon App on your iPhone or other smartphone. Press the button and you’ll get an order confirmation notification, letting you cancel the order. There’s even a way to block multiple mistaken orders, making sure you (or a toddler) won’t order too many items by accident.
You need to be a Prime member to even purchase Amazon’s new Dash buttons and use the service, but chances are if you’re reading this far, you’re already a Primester. Now when you run out of Smart Water and Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, you can just press the button and get your essential supplies sent right to your home.
