You have to be signed up to Prime to get a Dash button though, don't you?

Anyone found any easy-to-follow guides for hacking these to operate smart plugs etc?

My ex said I couldn't find the button with a map and a compass.....now Amazon are selling them!

Yes, everyone under 30 in Russia and China.

Just connect it to your wifi, they'll do the rest for you.

Cold from me. They were 99p last time.

Please do not buy these. Total con.

Next Step: They will get into your undies to find out if you need tampons

Surely these should be free if they want you to reorder from their site?

They are essentially free. You get the cost of the button off your first purchase with it.

Ffs don't put at child height!!

which one?

IMHO they all are. Only valid against a small product range, certainly not everything for that brand that Amazon sells. Usually what isn't included is cheaper on the site or in alternative places ie supermarkets etc. In order to use the convenience of the button you are massively overpaying for the product. Your choice though. I wouldn't buy again, and when I got a couple they were effectively free.
- sorry just realised that the thread is for more than just Dash buttons. My bad!

This is little different from Subscribe and Save. But with this you get to decide when the replenishment comes rather than a strict timetable.

You get confirmation of the price and the chance to cancel.

It has its benefits.

That said, really, this is a convenience no one asked for. The only way it would be useful is if I had buttons for everything I buy, because otherwise when I do my usual shopping I can pick up the items anyway. And if I had buttons for everything I buy I'd have too many buttons so...

So the button shows confirmation of price and the chance the cancel?

No you get a notification on your phone/tablet/whatever and also an email.

so that defeats the point of the button in the first place, they advertise it as buying without having to log onto any website, if you then have to log onto your email to check the price and cancel if necessary then you may as well just log onto Amazon and buy it that way in the first instance

Assuming things are still the same as when I purchased these for 99p last year to take advantage of the £4 savings the notification on your phone/tablet contains the price.

You do not need to login to your email.

You do not need to open a website.

The next time you look at your phone you will see the order information and you will be able to cancel without penalty, which is also your fail-safe for mistaken presses etc.

As I say this service is no different to the popular S&S service, but with that you're tied into specific scheduled deliveries.

These were awesome deals last year at 99p - you were essentially getting Amazon store credit in your basket.

Still worth investigating at £1.99.
There are 104 button this year, click through and see if you can find any items to order for less than £3 and you are getting the item for free. Any left over value then went in your basket for next Amazon order (might be different this year?)
Will take a look through the items list now and see if anything sticks out as good value.

Not recommended to use these for their intended purpose of re-ordering items though, as they will probably be overpriced.

Can be hacked if you like to tinker around with Raspberry Pi projects etc

a good example of this is the Gillette button...

There are 32 Gillette items available that you can configure your Dash Button to buy

One of them is only £1.77: "Gillette Simply Venus Disposable Razors x 8"

so this would leave you with £3.22 store credit on Amazon for a £1.99 button outlay (plus you get some free female razors)

(of course there is the potential that item will go out of stock)

So far out of the 104 buttons, most of the lowest price items are between £9-£16.
Let me know if you spot anything under £3

Been through the list - there are potentially a few items that will make you a quid or two in store credit. A lot of faff for very little reward.

Last year was better with the 99p pricetag....


===

Here's a list - the price of the cheapest item by that brand and the number of items you can choose from.

Probably these first 4 are worthy of your attention: Gillette, Wellwoman, Rimmel, Brabantia

I think the item has to be sold by Amazon direct (not a marketplace), so there's a good chance it will go out of stock

Brilliant, we'll all jump in our time machines and go get them for 99p then

Props to Amazon for milking their naive customers like this. Amazing...

Yes, did one last week, using Dasher on a RasberryPI to push a http POST command. Once set up you can MAC address block them on your router if you are only using it for local network projects so they don't communicate with Amazon.

Because a lot of people in this country are not going to care if their pack of loo rolls costs £18 instead of £14 this month etc.

Sadly I am not in this group.

I can't see the Amazon Music for 99p anywhere

neither am I that's why I'm a member here

The most pointless things....ever! <__________<'

s there a limit on the number of orders? If not, its a stupid idea.

It would be funny to play a hoax on someone so they end up with lorry load of toilet rolls

The offer price is double the offer price of last year, so it isn't a good offer price. I simply cannot give heat for a doubling in price.

If everyone gave deals heat simply because it is an offer price every deal would get thousands of degrees in heat and you wouldn't know a truly good offer price deal.

Don't get me wrong, I've still ordered a couple, but if it was 99p - that'd be a hot deal and I'd have ordered many many more.
