Amazon Dash Button - Limited Release
« on: August 18, 2015, 12:08:06 pm »
Does anyone have an opinion on these little dash buttons? I am having a hard time justifying the amount of time to configure these buttons vs just adding to my Amazon pantry. They should rename these things to the Amazon Pantry Buttons, and let us choose from the pantry what items and give these suckers away VS charging 5 bucks each.

yea, threads is a bit old but I just wanted to comment.  Why should we have to pay for a gadget to purchase items that already about 20 percent higher than what they are locally (at least in my area).  It is easier, faster, and cheaper just to tell echo to add it to the shopping list and pick it up the next time at the store.

Amazon did give it away for free for a while. But not any more.

Well that's when it was in a testing or a beta phase.
