Amazon's Dash Buttons, its adhesive one-click buttons that users can stick in any household surface where you may need to reorder products, is now made virtually free, according to a report from The Verge.

The Dash buttons also offers 11 new brands.

The Verge adds that Amazon now offers a rebate for the purchase of its Dash buttons, which is currently available only to Amazon Prime subscribers.

Subscribers now get a $4.99 credit back into their account for every Dash button that they buy, which is worth $4.99.

The Dash buttons are Amazon's latest attempt to create a world of interface-free shopping experience for the people, according to The Verge.

The plastic buttons, pairs with the Amazon app in your iOS or Android mobile device, to setup a purchase order of specific household items.

The Washington Post adds that an order alert can also be sent to your phone in case you want to cancel the purchase.

Amazon's Dash buttons started with 18 brands, which includes Bounty, Tide, Cottonelle, Glad Bags, Kraft Macaron and Cheese.

 The Washington Post adds that Amazon has now added 11 new brands to its Dash button, raising the total to 29 brands.

The new brands include Hershey Company's Ice Breaker Mints, Hefty's Bags, and Orbit's Gum.

Daniel Rausch, director of product management at Amazon, told The Washington Post that they are "learning a lot" about how people use the buttons.

He said that some have been re-ordering items on a weekly basis, more frequently than they expect.

The Washington Post adds that the Dash button has an option that lets the buttons respond only to the first order signal until that order is delivered.

This ensures that multiple orders won't happen in case the buttons were pushed accidentally.

A complete list of brands that are available on Amazon's Dash button can be seen on the company's website.
