"Shopping’s a hassle. But even on the Web?Amazon’s Ordering Buttons Get Prime Placement - Digits - WSJ
Amazon seems to think so. On Wednesday, the company said for the first time it is offering to all of its most devoted customers, Prime members, a thumb-drive-sized device that enables them to push a button to order things like Huggies diapers, Gillette razors and Cottonelle toilet paper.
Known as Dash Buttons, the devices were available in more limited release earlier this year for $5. Now Amazon is sweetening the deal by offering a rebate of $5, good for Amazon purchases, after the first button push. That effectively makes the buttons free, while also ensuring customers come back to Amazon.com to spend more."
