T.J. Maxx confirmed via Twitter that it has gotten into the iPad fray. The discount store has begun selling 16GB Wi-Fi iPads for $399; that’s $100 less than the going rate of $499.
The T.J. Maxx Twitter feed reads like stream of consciousness, but from what I can gather, the iPads are currently available in undisclosed stores across the country. The sale was initially thought to be a Black Friday specific deal, but it was confirmed that a number of stores are already selling the devices.
Regardless, if you frequent T.J. Maxx (like Mashable’s Brenna Ehrlich), or live in close proximity to one and are willing to risk life and limb to confirm more stores, please let us know whether these fire sale iPads are showing up in your area.
