    Yeah some of those are pretty nifty really (dishwasher / bogrolls / cleaning products in general)

    i think that's where the market lies for them...

    Nice and easy, but...............the Eco bod in me is thinking what a lot of packaging/carbon footprint and all that just for a pack of bog roll. Plus you would either have to wait in for the delivery, or go to pick it up at a locker, using more petrol. And where are the lockers? Oh yes, at supermarkets usually, where you could just pop in and buy a pack of bog roll anyway ;)
    Personally, I won't bother. I'd rather get some fresh air and exercise and walk down to the shop - just call me old school lol.

    Depends if they start combining them with the drone deliveries :D That's be cool.

    It does seem a bit much to have a button for just one thing.

    They are all about making you stick with the brand, I don't buy any of those branded items, find them a rip off. I wouldn't like to give Amazon and the brand in question the satisfaction out of getting my loyalty so easily.

    I think also that the prices are often more expensive for those items on Amazon, because of factoring in the 'free' delivery.

    It will only allow for one outstanding order at a time, once it's been pressed the button does nothing until that item has been delivered at which point it'll allow you to order another.
