If reaching for that new Windows 10 Amazon app on your Phone or PC is just too much, Amazon Dash is here to save the day. And now the instant order buttons have made their way to the UK, as well as Germany and Austria.
The idea is fairly straight forward. You place a Dash button in your home close to a product you use regularly. When you're close to running out you press the button and Amazon will magic a new one to your door. That easy.
It's open only to Amazon Prime subscribers (opens in new tab) at this time and each button will cost £4.99 to order. Upon your first press, you will automatically receive a £4.99 refund on your account, essentially making it free as long as you use it even once.
There's not a massive amount available for launch, but if you go through a lot of air freshener, cat food or toilet paper you're in luck. Check them out and order on Amazon right now (opens in new tab).

Personally I think this is a solution to a problem that doesn't really exist...seem pointless to me...
I need one for Root Beer. Because I have to get it from Amazon in the UK anyway.
This is useful for some restaurant
No business in its right mind buys from Amazon. Never know if you're going to get a VAT invoice or if it's some dodgy chinese seller. Bigsro was correct -pointless use of tech
I've never thought about ordering my toilet paper online lol what a load of s***
Make me one for skittles..
Just another nail in the high street coffin, and the precurser of the next lazy generations! Lol
This seems to be a general push to other markets. Germany will also get this: http://www.golem.de/news/amazons-dash-button-einkaufen-fuer-verplante-16...

Oh come on, Richard, do you honestly expect people to read the first line of the article after going to all the effort to read the title before writing a comment? ;-)
