Amazon’s new $20 Dash Wand is a handy little device for Prime customers that lets you order anything from Amazon just by scanning a bar code. It also comes with Alexa built in, so you can ask it questions or add items to your shopping cart that you don’t have a bar code for. Best of all, you get $20 in free Amazon credit when you set it up, so it’s essentially free. Here’s how to set yours up and start using it in your home.
How to Set Up Your Dash Wand
To get started, you’ll need the Amazon Shopping app for Android or iOS. Download the app to your phone. The included instructions tell you to open up your browser and head to amazon.com/wandsetup. On this screen, you can choose either US or UK set up, but in my experience this led to a redirect error. Instead, you can simply add a new device from the Amazon app.
To do this, open the app and tap the menu button in the top left corner, then select Your Account.
Next, scroll down and select “Set up a new device” under Dash Buttons & Devices.
Next, choose Dash Wand and on the next screen, specify which model you have. If you bought yours recently, it’s probably the second generation. The app will show you a picture of each model wand so you can confirm which one you have.
After you’ve selected your Dash Wand model, you should see a screen like the one below. Tap “Get started.”
