When should you tip, and how much?

by | Jul 25, 2023

Is tipping getting out of control in the US? After the pandemic and with the increase in digital payments, customers are overwhelmed by the number of places where they now have the option to tip.

“The American public feels like tipping is out of control because they’re experiencing it in places they’re not used to,” said Lizzie Post, co-president of the Emily Post Institute, to CNN. “Moments where tipping isn’t expected makes people less generous and uncomfortable.”

Specialists agree on one point: do not stress out and be generous when you can.


Experts say 15% is still OK, but they recommend at least 20% for good service and 10% if you dislike it.

Fast-food and takeout: No need to tip unless it’s brought out to the curb, then 10%

Food trucks: 10% unless you order something specially adapted to your needs or get exceptional service.

Bartenders: between $1 e $5 per drink.

Other Categories

Delivery drivers, Uber e Lyft drivers: between 15 and 22%.

Dog groomer: 10%, but increase to up to 20% “if you have a difficult dog”

Hair salon: between $5 and $20, depending on the service.

Manicure & pedicure: between $5 and $10.
