AVOID IMPULSE SHOPPING
It’s an old adage not to grocery shop when you’re hungry, but Dash buttons can make it all too easy.
If you hit the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish button one day when you’re thinking about a snack, you could find yourself a few days later with a six-pack of cracker boxes that you don’t really want.
Amazon gives you the option to cancel orders—but you have to log into your account, which sort of negates the time-saving “convenience” of the Dash button.
“Impulse shopping is something we warn against,” says Benjamin K. Glaser, features editor for online deal site DealNews.com.
