How much tip should I give to the chinese food delivery guy?

The total is $33.85
That is including a delivery fee of $1.50
So what would an appropriate amount be for a tip?

  • Usually 10%. But, I know most delivery drivers have to pay for their own gas, so right now I'd be a little more generous.

  • I'm personally a big tipper for delivery guys. If he's already getting $1.50 I'd give him $5.00.

  • I would also consider how far the place is away and how long it took them to get it to you.

  • I usually do about 10% OR $4 which ever is more. So for $33 I would round up to 4.
