T. J. Maxx and Marshalls to offer deep discount on Apple iPads over Black Friday weekend.

UPDATE: It turns out the T.J. Maxx/Marshalls sale is actually taking place this weekend and not Black Friday. If you’re in the market for an iPad, I definitely recommend calling (or running to) your local stores to see if they have any!

News has leaked out that both T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores are going to be offering the 16GB Wi-Fi iPad for only $399 as part of a Black Friday promotion. The sale price was confirmed by T.J. Maxx on their Twitter account @tjmaxx.

The rumors are TRUE! Select (unadvertised locations/limited quant @ajdelao whats this i hear of @tjmaxx carrying IPADS for $399 #maxxfinds

As you can see, the deal comes with a few conditions. Not every T.J. Maxx and Marshalls store is going to have iPads in stock and no one really knows how many even the participating stores will have. One rumor pegs the number at 100 iPads per store per day for the three day weekend, but who really knows.

It’s certainly a great price. A $100 discount is nothing to sneeze at. Is it worth battling an iPad frenzied crowd at some random discount clothing and home accessories store on Black Friday? I’ll leave that up to you.
