STOCK UP IN BULK
Stocking up in bulk isn’t a great deal for items like perishable foodstuffs. But you can save quite a bit on products like toilet paper and laundry detergent by buying in bulk at warehouse clubs or elsewhere. A Dash button could make it easy to miss out on savings.
MAKE PRICE COMPARISONS
Dash buttons are ideal for people who are extremely loyal to one brand. Of course, manufacturers like them for similar reasons: They help brands stand out on Amazon’s site and encourage people to reorder the same thing over and over again. (Amazon cites the ease of repeated orders as a plus.)
That’s fine if you’ve discovered the best paper towels on Earth and will never willingly use anything else. But you probably won’t be getting the best price, either.
“Deal hunters by nature are brand agnostic, and retailer agnostic, and this locks you into both a brand and a retailer,” Glaser said.
