The pink tax is a well-established fact, meaning that women will often pay more for the same items as men do. However, our research team at Voucherbox delved into the gender parity issue in the shopping sphere and we came up with some surprising results. We found that men do sometimes pay more than women for the same product. Predictably, men pay more than women for a suit; but did you know men pay more even for cobbler services; to get a rubber heel replacement for a shoe, for instance?
Men pay more for grooming services. Men even pay more for Regaine (or Rogaine depending upon what side of the pond you live) where women pay less for practically the same product. Have a look at some of these great deals on mens items:
