TJ Maxx Sells iPad for $399

The department store-style retailer TJ Maxx is dropping a little holiday surprise on shoppers: It is selling Apple’s 16GB Wi-Fi iPad for US$399, or $100 off list price.

Word of the deal first appeared at Engadget, and TJ Maxx confirmed the discount price through its Twitter account. The retailer isn’t making it overly easy, however, for customers to take advantage of the deal since it isn’t advertising which stores will be offering the discounted price.

TJ Maxx’s parent company, Marshalls, is offering discounted iPads in some of its stores, too. Presumably the iPads will be stocked between men’s cologne and polo shirts.
