If you’re like me, things can get pretty chaotic around the house, especially during the spring sports season. One thing I loathe doing is grocery shopping, so I will do whatever I can to get out of it! Who has time for last-minute trips to the store for essentials like juice boxes for lunch, toothpaste, laundry detergent, paper towels or any myriad of other household items?! Thankfully Amazon Dash buttons allow you to order over 250 different items with the click of a button!
How Does the Amazon Dash Button Work?
As I mentioned above, there are over 250 popular brand Dash buttons to choose from including:
- Bounty Tide
- Honest Kids
- Maxwell House
- Goldfish Crackers
- Optimum Nutrition
- Mrs. Meyers
All you need is a smartphone (the Amazon app works with both iOS and Android) and your Dash button. You will pair the Dash button with your device over your Wi-Fi network. Select the specific product you would like ordered when you press the Dash button. For example, with my Tide button, I chose the Tide Smart Pouch Free & Gentle HE. This is the exact item that will be ordered each time you press your button.
The button is $4.99, but that amount will be credited back to you with the first Dash button purchase. However, in celebration of the two-year anniversary of the Amazon Dash Button, from March 31 – April 7, customers can buy an Amazon Dash Button for $0.99 and still receive a $4.99 credit back after their first press of the button!
After you click the button, wait until you see the green light and you will know that your order has been placed. You will also get an email notification that your order has been received. You can visit the Amazon app to make changes to your order, check the status of the order or cancel it if need be. It’s that simple! I love that I can order an item as soon as I see it starting to get low, and in a few days (the Dash button is only available to Amazon Prime members), it will be on my doorstep. 🙂
You’re probably wondering what would happen if your child gets a hold of the Dash button and presses it eight gazillion times. Not to worry, there are some safeguards in place. The button will only submit an order on the first press of the button and cannot be activated again until the order arrives on your doorstep!
