So if you live in an Amazon Now area will they deliver the bog roll while you wait (seated)?

Do they have one that orders another Amazon Dash?

Not only that but if you hit the button you'd pay whatever the product costs at that moment which on amazon fluctuates wildly, the andrex for instance some days it'll be £17.50 for 45 rolls and others £22, there's more fun ways to gamble than one of these stupid buttons

Got one for £1. Forgot I had it. Better look for it

I just looked at listerene 1L and that was quite reasonable however you wouldn't get the full £4.99 back.
However looking at the price spread you could hit it at the wrong time.

Utterly. Pointless.

Pretty sure it's new customers / once only per account

These were great when they were a quid when they launched. Giving £5 discount. Grabbed 15 different ones and saved loads!

this product offends my sense of sustainability.

Does the hack work but pointless on this deal, cancel and get 5 pound credit on anything

There was me thinking it is a little too early for April Fools Day but it is a real device.

Seems rather pointless but they must have done some market research before launching it.

These are great for home automation - I've used them to toggle WiFi bulbs, turn multi-room music on and off, set the burglar alarm, reboot my Raspberry Pi and loads more. Bought when they were 99p but still a steal at £4.99!

​I'm intrigued! How do you do that? I've got some wifi bulbs, and I'm after some switches that turn the light on/off without turning the full power/wifi off but switches seem to be £40 ish. So if you could share you you use these you will be my hero!

Bought a few last year for this exact reason but never got round to it.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.

​Just Google it, plenty of people doing it

For idiots that don't know how to manage their houses.

Why should people pay for a device that's only purpose is to spend money with the same retailer you bought it from.

It's like having to pay for the right to enter a tesco....

I use the app from github.com/fiv…ack. Could go into more detail, but lots online if you Google.

Thanks mate. Ill have a look.

I was a bit intrigued about using these as IoT on/off buttons. Googled and watched (admittedly only 1) video, it didn't show how to set it up but just showed it working. However, I see the device itself still calls out to a site to request order, but dns settings tell it to do something else instead. Great while it works....trouble is if either stuck with the likes of a virgin superhub or similar, which with occasional firmware glitches have a habit of resetting factory settings, or if you make some changes yourself and forget to reapply it, could be a recipe for disaster as clicking away at the button and wondering if the battery has gone cos the lights aren't turning on and next day ya find out now have a lifetime supply of cat food

hopefully there's a better way to do it, or that I simply watched a wrong video, and able to make it permanently safe to use without risk of ordering
