Only for Prime Members (those lucky, lucky few) Pay £4.99 but you get it back with your first order. This button is for Andrex. I'm not sure if they can be easily reprogrammed for other products at Amazon. (How much Andrex can you possibly use!) The questions and answers are quite funny see: "the will to live" and "Phoo"

Amazon Dash Button is a Wi-Fi-connected device that reorders your favourite product with the press of a button.

Each Dash Button is paired with a product of your choice, which is selected during the setup process.

Easy to use. Press the Dash Button and never run out of your favourite products.

Buy with confidence. Get the same low prices we offer on Amazon.

Order protection. Ensures Dash Button responds only to your first press until your order is delivered.

Peace of mind. You will receive an order notification for every order placed, allowing you to cancel the order before it delivers.

Prime Members get unlimited one-day delivery.

Potentially this is quite useful: a button which connects by wi-fi and sends a command see:

I don't see the point of these. I've got one device with which I can order anything I like from anywhere I like. It's called a 'computer.'

it's a product amazon wants you to use inatead of shopping around! no idea why you'd want it, let alone pay for it...unless, as above, it can be used for something else...

Well it seems it can and it's free if you order once.
A panic button (for instance) would be quite useful. I've not idea whether this can be done but it apparently uses Python, which is a common programming language

GIVE THEM AWAY AMAZON, OR IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN.

The only possible way this is useful to a deal hunter is if it automatically price matches cheapest deal, which it most certainly won't, otherwise it is a profit button for amazon. Using tech to hoodwink the consumer: the naive beware.

This is hardly a deal. these buttons have been this price, and even then you expected to pay to make an order??

So...potentially you would need a wall full of different dashes each for only one specific product?:|

I thought this was for when you've ran out & caught short on the toilet, 1 hour delivery!!

Why do they even specify the product?
Incidentally, some people are confused by the pronunciation of Dash the "a" is pronouced "oo"

The plonkers who get these might not care what the item is, they obviously don't care what the price is.

Idea to Mr. Bezos:
offer a mystery Dash. It might be a tube of KY Jelly or it could be an iphone 7. charge £800 either way. market it as "aspirational"

If they were FREE. then maybe. as a gimmick to play with.
but to pay £5 for each one they do. and you can only press it once no matter how many times you may be tempted to press it. then it's a silly idea. and I'm out!

can imagine the kids pressing this everytime they go in the bathroom and a 1000 toilet rolls turning up at the door!

They should introduce the Amazon Daesh. Just one press of the button and the next day a horde of Islamic fundamentalists arrive at your door and behead your dog.

It is a deal because you get credited with 4.99 when you make your first order so free

When Home Bargains make a Nicky version, I'm in.

And you woud still end up logging in on your computer to confirm it worked an a order was placed..

Who would want to use it as intended?
(Anyway, apparently, you are sent a confirmation with each order)
The potential is in the reprogramming
