A year after its initial announcement, Amazon's Dash Button for instant reordering of everyday essentials is gaining momentum and new product partners. Amazon has announced it is adding a raft of big-name brands to its Dash range, including Charmin, Doritos, Energizer, Red Bull, Starbucks, Trojan, and Vitamin Water. As of today, there are more than 100 Amazon Dash Buttons available, with Amazon announcing a broadening of categories to include snacks, beverages, batteries, and more office products. Orders via the brand-specific Dash Buttons have grown by 75 percent over the last three months, and there's now one taking place every minute.
Dash Buttons cost $4.99 each, but they come with a $4.99 discount off your first Dash order, and so are essentially free. You do have to be a member of Amazon's Prime program, however. The whole purpose of these cute Wi-Fi-connected order automators is to keep you locked within Amazon's shopping empire, erecting walls of convenience that prevent customers from buying their coffee or condoms elsewhere.
