AVOID IM­PULSE SHOP­PING

Red Eye Chicago - - Big Picture -

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.
