The 20 Best Amazon Dash Buttons

From toilet paper to snacks, here are the Dash buttons everyone needs

Available for Amazon Prime customers, Dash buttons are internet-connected buttons that will change the way you shop. No more forgetting, just seamless ordering. And they don't have to be physical buttons. While those are definitely useful, you can also create digital Dash buttons to use through Amazon's mobile app or website. 

When you purchase a button, Amazon will charge you $4.99. The first time you use it; however, you'll get that $5 back, so don't let the cost deter you.

If you're up for some dashing, here are a few of my favorite uses for a Dash button.

This one, admittedly, makes the most sense to me as a Dash button. Condoms are one of those things you don’t typically think about needed until you, well, need them. You’re also often using them late at night, probably with the lights off and far away from your computer. Not exactly a great setup for remembering to reorder. And I assure you, nothing will kill the mood faster than telling your partner you need to logon to Amazon real quick. You could discretely attach a Dash button; however, inside your nightstand drawer and press the button when you realize you’re running low. Problem solved.   More »

This is another Dash button that’s exceptionally useful simply because of what it is and where you’re likely to be when you realize you need it. One of these mounted under your bathroom sink means you don’t have to remember you’re a roll away from crisis and ensure that you’re never without a roll when you need it. There are a handful of different Dash buttons available for toilet paper. My personal fave is Charmin. More »

New parents know exactly how fast you can go through packs of diapers. If you don’t have diapers on constant reorder (with a stockpile sitting around just in case), then a Dash button can be a great thing to mount next to the changing table. We all know diaper changing can be… an ordeal. With a Dash ​button you can focus on your little one, and avoid a panicked call to friends asking for emergency provisions. More »

Right up there with the immediate need for diapers is the one for baby wipes. Do yourself a favor and pick up one of these as well so you can handle shopping for both with the press of a button. More »

I’m torn on this one. In general, I think plastic bags are something most of us go through relatively slowly, slowly enough that you can remember to pick up a box at the store before you run completely out. If your someone that’s regularly packing lunches; however, then chances are good you go through bags a little faster than the average person. For you, there’s a Dash button. Put this one in your pantry. More »

This Dash button is near and dear to my heart. Summer allergies are the worst. If you have seasonal allergies, chances are good you don’t rush for the allergy medicine until you’re already having a pretty awful time. The question is: do you have any allergy medicine left over from the last time you had a hard time? If you’re like me, the answer to that question is almost always no. Mounted in a medicine cabinet, the Zyrtec button can help you keep your supply stocked for when you need it the most. More »

Have a pup in the house? Ensure his breath is always fresh and clean with a Greenies Dash button. Mounted on the side of whatever cabinet or container you use for treats, this one makes reordering simple, and will keep tails wagging. Greenies not Fido’s thing? There’s a Milk-Bone Dash button available as well. More »

I’m somewhat embarrassed to admit that my dog, Tucker, has become pretty accustomed to having scrambled eggs for breakfast. That’s what happens when I run out of dog food when I feed him in the morning and then forget to pick up a new bag on my way home. The scrambled egg breakfast typically goes on for a few days before I finally manage to get things together and pick him up a bag. Since he’s on a fancy prescription diet I can’t use this button, but if your favorite fur ball is a Purina fan this could be perfect.  More »

There’s also a cat food option. When you’re running low, tap the button to reorder food for your favorite feline so you don’t run the risk of running out.  More »

Every woman needs a Dash button for tampons. You only need them once a month, but when you need them you often really need them and somewhat unexpectedly. Depending on how things went the month before, you may or may not have reserves ready to go. And if you’re not in an immediate need of tampons, chances are very good you’re not going to remember to buy them.  More »

Hand soap is another thing I tend to unexpectedly run out of. I never keep reserves, so when the soap on the bathroom counter runs out, it’s often slightly unexpected and means we’re breaking into my stockpile of hotel soaps for a day or two until I remember to pick up new soap on the way home.

Granola bars can be the perfect thing to grab and go with in the morning on your way to work or school, or take as a snack for the road while you’re traveling or even working out. If you’re not eating them on a specific schedule; however, then it can be easy to accidentally run low on  More »

When you start to run low, press the button to reorder so you’ll have a new bottle ready to go when you need it. More »

The same thing can be said for Nexium. When you have really bad ​heart burn you’ll want one, but when you don’t you’re likely not thinking about buying it. One of these in your medicine cabinet can make sure you’re never without one when you need it.

Chances are good you can remember to put kitchen garbage bags on the grocery list on the fridge when they run out, but what about all the trash cans you have elsewhere in your house? This Dash button can be customized with a particular type of bag, and then orders can be made with the press of a button. For instance, you could have one in the garage to reorder leaf bags, or in the bathroom to get some new tiny bags for that trash can. More »

This is an odd one, but I’d be remiss to not mention it. The Calvin Klein Dash button lets you order a new pair of underwear with the press of a button. Of course, most of us aren’t going through underwear at a speed where we need a reorder button, but hey, if that’s you then this one’s for you.  More »
