Is it custom to tip takeaway delivery drivers in the States? Do you tip?
You give them a tip.
I don’t use takeway delivery - the services take so much from the restaurants that the meal is hardly profitable for them. I go pick up my food to support the restaurant on the rare occasions when we order out.
Yes I tip them 10%. In restaurants I tip servers 15%.
I never leave a tip for restaurants or delivery drivers. In fact I don’t tip anyone here in England. I did tip all the time in Sri Lanka though as its more expected so if I went to the States I would also tip but I’m unfamiliar with it so probably tip too much.
Here servers in restaurants are paid under the minimum because of tips. So its essential to tip. Actually I had a friend who didn’t tip and the server ran after him outside for the tip saying she’s paid under the minimum etc
Here in Canada its usually 15% but you can tip more if you want.
All restaurant staff are paid horribly. It’s a rare one who is making a living wage.
i like to tip. big tipper,
Yes you should tip.
People in the service industry here rely on tips. They are often paid less than minimum wage.
When I delivered pizza we got tipped fairly steady. One time a couple of decades ago I wouldn’t tip the drivers of a certain Pizza delivery operation because I thought they were making rude fun of my mental illness. If I’m ever over that way again I will tip them well.
Tipping in the US is pretty tricky, but as a general rule:
10% = bare minimum to not be considered rude
15% = average
20% = for really good service/ you just like being nice
25% = Someone went majorly above and beyond for you
Above 25% = this is your favorite server at your favorite establishment
Cost of take out delivery is a luxury. Delivery fees + Tips - insane.
I mostly order when I have 40-80% off coupons. They keep sending me coupons every month.
Also we’re 5 living together and each one has an account so we never run out of coupons when we want to order for everyone lol
That is smart - don’t you get referral bonuses too.
Yes you do, I think for Ubereats and Instacart its 10$ for both parties. I wonder if I can make multiple accounts lol but they will probably ban them.
I just cancelled my Instacart. 99$ + delivery fees + tip.
I’m just doing amazon fresh - no delivery or tipping chargers.
Ordered dominos pizza the other day - not my idea.
A $45 after tax became $58 delivered.
