AIBU to think that in my/most houses you'd end up with 5x item, because you pushed it on purpose then again because you forgot you pushed it, or weren't sure if you pushed it or not, then the kids press it for fun, a couple of times, and someone goes "oooh, what's this button for?" <press>

smile they do email you so you can cancel if you've ordered in error

You can cancel the order, and it can only order once in 24 hours.

I have one - liked the gimmick - my cleaner ordered me some Ariel soap powder the other week but I could have cancelled the order. I was at work and I got the order through via email so I knew it had happened

Oh, see my amazon emails are all sent to another folder only to be read if something goes awry!

It's an interesting concept but I really don't see the point for a single product (or even quite a few individual products if you have multiples).

What's the point in pressing a button to have my Daz or my cat food delivered - I still have to grocery shop to buy the other 200 household items I need!

I can't actually think of a product that I would really benefit from.

My cat is clicker trained. There is no way I'm letting him near a dreamies button grin

Yeesh, I can just see the cat figuring out which button brings Dreamies grinwe'd be bankrupt.

(I agree though, can't see for the life of me how this is something you'd really need though!)

I can see how we might use it for bulky essential items like cat food/litter etc. We live very near a supermarket and rarely do a 'big shop', just lots of small shops. But bulky items are a bit of a pain as hard to transport on foot.

I could see having a button so I could order cat food for next day delivery pretty handy.
