It might’ve started out as a possible joke, but Amazon’s Dash will be right there for you. With just one push of a button, the daily products in your house that usually run out when you most need them will be delivered to your home. And you won’t have to move a muscle. Except your finger.
Amazon Prime members are already being spoiled with plenty of benefits to get their deliveries quicker for the price of $99 per year. Everything gets to your home faster, you have access to Amazon videos, and many more. Frequent users of the brand should definitely consider the service because they’re bringing new things each month.
Now, exclusively for Amazon Prime users, their last promotion is the addition of Amazon Dash buttons, nifty little things that you can stick anywhere in your house for emergency deliveries. The consensus seems to be that the tiny buggers might be playing on the general laziness everyone experiences from time to time and the temptation that, with just one press, a delivery system will bring you what you need.
Amazon offers 18 different variations for all of these products, ranging from detergent to wipes
to water or macaroni and cheese, each individual button for $4.99. The battery powered small devices will work with your WiFi and the sticky back will allow you to glue them wherever you want in the house.
The process is simple. You may consider the scenario where you’re doing laundry and running out of detergent, when you remember the tiny Amazon Dash button for Tide you’ve earlier on plastered on your laundry machine. One push of the button will send a notification to your phone, iOS or Android, after which it’ll take a maximum of two days for the products to arrive.
It will only work with the first press and you will have the opportunity to cancel the order through your smartphone should you wish. The one click button could certainly be convenient, even if it’s playing loose with the term “emergency”. More like “fast delivery” without actually going through the list of products.
The variety offered will open a range of possibilities, though there is the chance of admitting laziness to yourself after you press the Dash button. However, there could be actual benefits that don’t imply guilt, for example, for parents with young children who do not have time to leave the house every time they run out of diapers.
It’s only to be hoped that it won’t provide more reasons for people to never leave their house.
