Amazon hopes that Dash will be a game changing technology to get people to do their grocery shopping from home. Its greatest asset is that Dash helps to automate the creation of your shopping list. All you have to do is speak into the device and it will add whatever you say to your shopping list. If you happen to have the item you want already on hand, you can scan the barcode and it will add it to your list. When you are ready for your items to ship, you simply sign into your AmazonFresh account and your entire shopping list will be there ready to order.
The Dash is not currently available to everyone. In fact, it’s currently being given to a limited number of people for trial. The company began offering the device to a few AmazonFresh members last Friday and plans to slowly roll out the entire program. You must have an AmazonFresh account (there is a 30 day free trial and then it’s $299 a year after that. Orders of more than $35 ship for free and there are over half a million products that can be ordered) to request one, which will then place you on a waiting list to get an invitation to receive one. The program is currently available in selected areas in the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle and Southern California.
