Jacks aka Tesco Supermarket products review & bill opening day 20sep18
This supermarket has just joined Tesco in axing the tampon tax
And it’s about time.
It’s safe to say we’ve all had enough of paying tax on our tampons, with sanitary items seen as luxuries not necessities, unlike bread and razors which are both free of VAT.
There has been decades of protesting around the issue with men and women across the UK deeming it unfair that the female population is forced to pay 5% tax for buying something that is actually a healthcare necessity.
Last year marked the 2019 tampon tax war, with pressure on the government to scrap the tax completely but instead they decided to compromise, putting the money raised from the tax towards women’s charities. Sadly the charities in question weren’t actually that female-friendly, with £250,000 reportedly going to an anti-abortion charity.
With news like this emerging, it’s easy to think that little to no progress has been made towards axing the tampon tax in the UK.

Luckily, last week Tesco proved us wrong, becoming the first retailer to waive the tampon tax, absorbing the tax for its customers and paying the 5% rate themselves.
This reduced costing will apply to almost 100 products in Tesco’s range – including both branded items and products from the supermarket’s own label, making them more affordable.
