It pays to be pink. At least Garmin thinks so.

For my mother’s birthday I purchased a TomTom One 130. The updated maps had the other half of my road, so I was happy it could navigate more efficiently. Tonight I stumbled across a new site called DealWaiter. I plugged in “Garmin Nuvi” and it had a few results but also had a link to buy it immediately on Amazon.com. I’m sure that link is purely platonic, right? Hah! It turns out the Garmin Nuvi 250 comes in two colors: pink and silver.

I was blown away by the price difference:

Amazon.com - Garmin Nuvi 250 - Price comparison between silver and pink versions
Amazon.com - Garmin Nuvi 250 - Price comparison between silver and pink versions

Silver: $109.99
Pink: $471.99
——————–
Difference: $362.00

The difference alone could purchase
3.3 units of the silver model!

Garmin isn’t the only company who discriminates based on color. Want a black Mac? Better have some “I’m rich!” money laying around. Apple used to have both black and white MacBooks and the typical difference was $100+.

What ridiculous discrepancies have you found?
