At first, everyone thought they were an April Fool’s joke. But Amazon Dash buttons are real, and just this past week, they became available to all Amazon Prime members for a mere $5 apiece. (Hey, Amazon, shouldn’t they be free?)
The buttons are physical hardware devices that you set up to be associated with a particular SKU on Amazon, allowing you to easily reorder common household products, like paper towels, detergent, toilet paper, diapers, personal care items, as well as groceries and pet supplies.
We ordered some Dash buttons for ourselves to see how they work.
