The Kindle can be purchased in most countries from Amazon.com and from many retail stores in the United States, including Best Buy, Office Depot and Staples. Select retail stores in Australia, New Zealand, Canada and South America may also carry the Kindle.
The Kindle, Kindle content and related accessories can be purchased online from Amazon.com or from most country-specific Amazon sites, such as Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.jp and Amazon.co.uk. To purchase a Kindle online, a purchaser can log into her Amazon.com account or create one, search for the Kindle and select the device that best fits her needs. Clicking the Add to Cart button and following the prompts on the webpage completes the order.
Purchasing a Kindle at a brick-and-mortar store may be faster or easier than purchasing online. Amazon.com keeps a list of retail stores that carry the Kindle and related accessories. Popular chain stores, such as Best Buy, Office Depot and Staples, carry the Kindle, as well as smaller retailers, such as Alco Stores, J & R and Nebraska Furniture Mart. Some stores may have in-store working demonstrations of some Kindle features, but on-hand availability of the Kindle usually varies by location. To check the availability of the Kindle or in-store working demonstrations, purchasers may call their local retail stores or check their websites.
