Hmm personally think these things are one step too far, like who really needs a dedicated button to order a specific product like this?

Still considering you effectively get £2.50 to own one, I might be tempted. How does the £5 credit work? Does it go onto your main Amazon account like a normal promotional credit or is it tied to the button only?

If it's the latter I will probably give it a miss as I'd want to be able to use the credit how I want and not be tied to one product...
Can a mod change it please the new app is useless

I bought a couple a while back when they were on offer (£1 button with £5 credit, I think).
Was disappointed. Tough to set up using my tablet, but that was probably my old fashioned tech.
The credit only worked on the button. I had Kleenex & Dettol ones, but found the buttons were not only brand specific, but product specific too. Might have changed now, but the buttons wouldn't work across the whole range, and the products that could be purchased using the buttons weren't usually the best value for money. I had to wait nearly a year before using my Kleenex button, as I refused to waste the free credit buying over priced goods. Wouldn't buy them again.
Think there was a loophole to getting the credit expanded, but I never bothered with this.

It would be bullets in the USA
Are these still easily hackable as wifi buttons?
Not for me, but a mega 🔥 deal! Nice spot
can just see the orders flooding in after the kids have pressed it 10 times wondering what the hell it does. And for that reason.....I'm out

They have safeguards against that.
I bought the Tassimo button, but the range of products you can actually attach to the button is quite small (for example, you can't add L'Or Latte Macchiato, which is madness).

Yes.

Believe so. I bought one a while ago and although it was a version 2 button, it was still possible to do so. Have it hooked up to IFTTT at the moment but haven't decided what to use it for.

Bought 4 or 5 on UK launch (discounted) never once used as we like a 'deal' on this site and these buttons go against the deal mentality.
Avoid.
Really! Because ordering is really hard, I know, I'll pay whatever Amazon feels like charging me.

Coooooooooooold

What's the appeal of these things?
great to use as long as you keep an eye on the price changes, ordered the finish one and pushed my Andrex one as classic toilet roll is £15 for 45 at the moment
These things are rubbish. Most of the items are cheaper on subscribe and save, which doesn't work with Dash.

I'm a tech guy, and love things like this, but not for the sake of wasting money.
Thanks heat added

I had the same experience with the SimpleHuman button. Despite owning two different bins I found their button completely useless. Didnt offer bags for the first and I could only order bags for the second if i was prepared to order a year's supply in one go, defeating the whole idea behind Dash buttons. Naturally I can make both orders on Amazon the normal way, just not with the Dash button. Absolute frustrating waste of time.

Exactly. And the Dash buttons don't even have a magnet on them, which would be handy for placement in a kitchen

Are you disappointed that the prices aren't to good or that it took you a year to use your Kleenex supply?
At least your knobs would have been Dettol fresh.
Got a few Hue bulbs in the kids bedrooms at the moment just working as normal bulbs so will hopefully configure this as an on/off switch - cheaper than a hue switch.
Maybe an odd question, but, WTF are they?
Ridiculous
a new way of being an utterly lazy moron.
These have flopped hard, especially since the Echo came out. Also who would want to pay their over inflated prices for household items when nearly every supermarket is cheaper for those sorts of things.

Frustrated that Amazon only seemed to allow dash button purchases on their least cost effective products. Took a year for a good value Kleenex product to become available.

And, look after your own knobs. Don't judge the cleanliness of mine!!
bought a bunch of these last time as wanted to use them for home automation, but found it a ballache to use. the buttons themself if you were to use in a normal circumstance are stupid imo. ended up buying like a years supply of kleenex tissues (which turned out to be xmas themed boxes, which is lovely given that there were like 12 of them).
One of the other buttons I had (i cant remember which now) didn't even have any products associated with it, so literally couldn't use it.
most of the other stuff to choose from are bulk items. which makes it even less useful as chances are it would be cheaper buying BOGOF in the supermarkets when you need them.
all in all, as you can probably tell, not impressed. but i didn't expect to be to be fair.
some people won't be happy until amazon are actively watching what you eat and drink and keeping tabs on your stock levels of things in the fridge

A button that is linked to an item eg plenty Kitchen Roll.

If you're going onto Amazon anyway, isn't it just as easy to press the "buy with one click" button?
Used these once to use promotional credit and not since as more expensive than Wilko, B&M, Poundshop etc
Decent for the free credit, but have to confess I've never used either of mine since ordering and using up the credit. I have one stuck above my bin for bin bags and it always gets commented on as being pretty cool.

Reality is less cool though.
