The Amazon Echo speaker can now also be purchased from

People who want to purchase the Amazon Echo connected speaker now have another option besides Amazon itself. It is now for sale on the Staples website for the same price of $179.99.

Staples will be the only third-party retailer to offer the Amazon Echo for sale, but it will only be available online for now. You won't be able to walk in your local Staples retail store and purchase the speaker, at least not immediately. Aside from that, there's nothing else that Staples is doing to make its Echo listing different than Amazon's, although if you own any Staples gift cards, you can use them now to help purchase the speaker.
