amazon money hack onlineAmazon Dash button hacks for your home
Dash buttons are capable of doing so much once you’ve connected them up to the internet. However, with near-limitless possibilities, it can be hard to find a goal to start working towards, which is why we’ve put together five potential Amazon Dash button hacks you can get to work on.
Create a shopping list of common items
Like the idea of Dash buttons, but don’t want to order only products from Amazon, nor to have them delivered to your door? Well, you can cut out Amazon entirely and have each Dash button create an entry on a shopping list.
You could keep buttons on the inside of cupboard doors or stuck to the outside of your fridge. Run out of milk or coffee? Just press the button to add an entry as an iOS reminder, an Evernote list or in a Google Sheet.
It takes the pressure off having to use Amazon as your ordering service – and it should keep your bank balance a little healthier, too.
Build a silent doorbell
If you’ve just had a baby, the ringing of a doorbell could well wake them from a much-needed sleep. Maybe you work nights and don’t want to be woken with a start by the postman. Or perhaps you just hate the invasive sound of a ringing bell.
A silent doorbell could solve these problems easily and wirelessly. Using an Amazon Dash button, via either of the methods mentioned above, the press of a button could send you a text, an Android notification or a fake call to let you know someone’s at the door. No noise, no fuss.
Create a remote on/off switch for connected lightbulbs
Fed up with tackling the assault course that is the journey from the light switch to your bed at night? A portable Dash-button-powered light switch could help solve this problem by letting you turn bedroom lights off from your bedside – or even control all the house lights from one room.
That can be set up easily through IFTTT, the only caveat being that you need a connected lightbulb or a Wi-Fi power socket such as Belkin’s WeMo Switch. Thankfully, prices for these are dropping quickly. While a Philips Hue LED bulb starter pack still costs £59, a quick Amazon search yields results of Wi-Fi-enabled LED bulbs for as low as £20, and you can pick up a WeMo switch for £31.The Amazon is a vast region that spans across eight rapidly developing countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, an overseas territory of France.
The landscape contains:
One in ten known species on Earth
1.4 billion acres of dense forests, half of the planet’s remaining tropical forests
4,100 miles of winding rivers
2.6 million square miles in the Amazon basin, about 40 percent of South America
There is a clear link between the health of the Amazon and the health of the planet. The rain forests, which contain 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon, help stabilize local and global climate. Deforestation may release significant amounts of this carbon, which could have catastrophic consequences around the world.Share your Amazon Prime account with your significant other
If you weren’t aware, Amazon recently changed the sharing rules on Prime. However, you can still share your Prime account with one other adult in your household. That person will be able to access 2-day shipping as well as all the extra perks of Prime.
Be aware that all credit and debit cards associated with the two accounts can be viewed by the other party and copied from one account to the other. So if you don’t want your roommate having access to your cards, don’t share the account.
25. Want to upgrade your shipping speed on the cheap? Order items separately
While this tactic is YMMV depending on product volume / weight, it’s proven to be effective as Amazon often combines orders to save money on shipping costs. When you are ready to make a purchase, order items separately, but consecutively.
For example, if you want one-day shipping on all the items, pay the .99 fee for one-day shipping on one item and leave the rest at free two-day shipping. It’s likely that you will receive one package the next day with everything inside. This also can work by downgrading to the no-rush shipping to earn credits for Amazon video, music, ebooks and Prime Pantry.

ComiXology is a cloud-based digital comics platform with over 200 million comic downloads as of September 2013. It offers a selection of more than 40,000 comic books and graphic novels across Android, iOS, Kindle Fire, and Windows 8 devices, and over the Internet. Amazon bought the company in April 2014.
Goodreads is a “social cataloging” website founded in December 2006 and launched in January 2007 by Otis Chandler, a software engineer and entrepreneur, and Elizabeth Chandler. The website allows individuals to freely search Goodreads’ extensive user-populated database of books, annotations, and reviews. Users can sign up and register books to generate library catalogs and reading lists. They can also create their own groups of book suggestions and discussions. In December 2007, the site had over 650,000 members and over 10,000,000 books had been added. Amazon bought the company in March 2013.
Shelfari is a social cataloging website for books. Shelfari users build virtual bookshelves of the titles which they own or have read, and they can rate, review, tag, and discuss their books. Users can also create groups that other members may join, create discussions, and talk about books, or other topics. Recommendations can be sent to friends on the site for what books to read. Amazon bought the company in August 2008. Shelfari continued to function as an independent book social network within the Amazon.com family of sites until 2016, when that January, Amazon announced on Shelfari.com that it would be merging Shelfari with Goodreads and closing down Shelfari.

Beijing Century Joyo Courier Services is a subsidiary of Amazon and it applied for a Freight forwarding license with the US Maritime Commission. Amazon is also building out its logistics in trucking and air freight to potentially compete with UPS and FedExAmazon, Apple, Google and Mozilla have all filed an amicus brief to support Microsoft in its battle against the US government over the Electronic Communications Privacy Act (ECPA). The document, also known as a friend-of-the-court brief is designed to act as a legal show of support in Microsoft’s ongoing battle against government officials over wording in the ECPA that lets officials determine when (or if) companies should notify customers of government information requests.
These tech companies hope to send a message to the courts that the ECPA is detrimental to privacy and could be a violation of the Fourth Amendment — protection from illegal search and seizure. By not notifying customers of these requests, Microsoft feels that it’s assisting the government in violating its users’ constitutional rights.

Microsoft isn’t alone in its thinking. Aside from the amicus filing on Friday, others — ranging from British Petroleum and the Electronic Frontier Foundation to Fox News and former Department of Justice and FBI officials — have all come out in support of Microsoft.
The Department of Justice argues that there’s “compelling” interest in keeping criminals investigations private and insists Microsoft has no grounds for this lawsuit. Unlike its recent battle with Apple, it doesn’t seem there’s a third option to remedy this situation; it will ultimately have to be decided on by the courts.There’s no way to sugarcoat it — even if you create long, unique passwords and limit the amount of info you post online, your digital security is still at major risk. A breach in just one account can lead to a devastating domino effect.
One Amazon user learned this the hard way when a clever scammer used the shopping site to steal his identity. Former software developer Eric Springer posted on Medium this week how he was hacked not once but three times through Amazon’s customer service feature.
Springer first noticed the breach when he received an email thanking him for contacting Amazon, which he had never done. After a little digging, he found out a thief had impersonated him and supplied just his email address to the agent — and gained Springer’s real address, phone number, and payment information in return. He then managed to get a new copy of Springer’s credit card directly from his bank. Even though Springer repeatedly asked Amazon to stop giving out his personal details, the criminal later obtained another address and credit card through the same scam.
Now the frustrated customer is gone for good. “At this point, Amazon has completely betrayed my trust three times,” Springer wrote. “I have done absolutely everything in my power to secure my account, but it’s hopeless.”
It might sound like a rare occurrence,
