Amazon’s cooked up a new pricing scheme for its possibly dystopian laziness button: If you use it, the company will give you your money back.

Buying a Dash Button costs $5 right now. But how many people buy one as a novelty and then never set it up? Amazon’s hoping to encourage users with a new deal. After you use your Dash Button to make a purchase, the company will put a $5 credit in your account. The whole program is still only open to Prime members.

The company is also adding 11 new brands to to the program, including Ice Breakers Mints. Yup, a button for reordering breath mints. What a world.
