Million Dollar Journey had a really fun post that appealed to the voyeur in me. He asked his readers, how much do you tip?

As the holiday season approaches, if you want to be a santa, not a scrooge, check out the blog’s responses and see how you stack up.

And if you’re bold – leave a comment here: how much to you tip?

Nancy started her own journey with money over 15 years ago, and formed her company “Your Money by Design” in 2004 to help others along the same path. It’s not the usual financial advising/investment stuff. It’s about taking control of day-to-day finances –managing monthly cashflow effectively, spending appropriately, getting out of debt, saving.

  1. It’s 15% for me pre-tax.

    Maybe I just don’t go to the fancy restaurants but I don’t see how saying, “may I take your order?”, “how’s everything going?” or “are you finished?” constitutes as service deserving a tip.

    Shouldn’t that be expected?

    Now, if they were particularly engaging I can see it. But not when they stop off 3 times as aforementioned through the course of the meal.

    I tip at about 15% of my pre-tax bill too. Usually since I live in NB and we have a 14% tax I just look at that and round up to the nearest logical amount.

    I will only not tip if the service was bad.
