Staples launches official Windows 8 app

Staples is only one of three official retail locations for selling Microsoft's Surface tablets in the U.S. (the others are Best Buy and Microsoft's own retail stores). Today, Staples finally joined Best Buy and a number of other retail store outlets with its own Windows 8 and RT app.

The free app, available to download from the Windows Store, lets users search and purchase items from its entire catalog along with the ability to compare products with each other from within the app. It also lets users quickly find their nearest Staples retail location and gain access to the weekly newspaper ad which is full of price cuts and special offers.

Members of Staples' rewards program can stay updated on their offers and rewards as well as their purchase history. It lets users save lists for quick ordering from the Staples catalog and will even let users find the ink and toner that they need to order for their specific printers.

Staples recently announced a limited time offer that gives people who purchase touchscreen-based Windows 8 products a chance to turn in their old PCs and tablets. The customers then receive a Visa gift card  in the mail for between $100 and $400, depending on the PC and tablets they are retiring.
