It was a year ago to the day that Amazon announced its Dash Button service, which provides consumers “easy-one touch ordering” of a variety of products. Today, the online giant has more than tripled its lineup bringing the total number of products to over 100.
From home goods to food, personal care and more, Amazon is making its move to show that Dash is a viable service. Head below for a look at the new buttons that are available for ordering today.
From the outset, Amazon has had some big names attached to its Dash program: Bounty, Colorox, Gatorade, Huggies and more. However, there was certainly room for improvement. Today’s announcement adds a variety of products across some of Amazon’s most popular categories. Standouts include Doritos, Energizer, Quaker, Red Bull, Starbucks, Trojan and more. Hop over to the Dash Hub for a full look at the new line of buttons available.
Amazon is continuing its promotion that nets customers a $4.99 credit after their first Dash button purchase. If you’ve not used the service before, simply order a button and use it to refill that specific item. After your “first press”, the credit will be added to your account within a few days. Full terms and conditions can be found here.
With today’s announcement, Amazon has shown that it is committed to growing this unique service. It will be interesting to track how it evolves in the coming year as it shows its viability. Be sure to drop us a comment down below on which Dash button you’ll be picking up today. I’ve already ordered a Vitamin Water and Red Bull for my pantry.

“I absolutely LOVE my Dash Buttons. My husband and I first bought two of them to try out (Tide Pods and toilet paper). A week later we bought three more (dishwasher detergent, paper towels, and trash bags).
– Bethany M.
”As the soon-to-be new parent of twins, being able to order more wipes in a sleep deprived stupor without having to remember my login information seems pretty spectacular. First order arrived even sooner than expected.”
– Joshua K.
“Honestly, I love being able to just push the button when I get low on trash bags and a new box appears at my doorstep two days later. It couldn’t be any easier than that.”
– Christy P.
“I’ve placed the Dash buttons where I normally place the toilet paper and cleaning products to remind me when to order the items. My girlfriend and I announce when we get the chance to press the button because we’re excited whenever we get the opportunity to press it…it’s fun and efficient.”
– Pedro S.
