I think this would be better as a poll...

Anyway, I tip depending on how much the cost of the food was, just like I do anywhere else. I usually tip about 20%.

When you post a new thread, you are given the option to make a poll. It's a little checkbox. Then, when you go to post the thread you come to a screen where you create the poll.

I usually tip a few bucks depending on how much money i have (usually not a lot). But i always try to tip well- A lot of folks depend on those tips to make ends meet....i've been there, so i know what it's like.

They have such a thing as Pizza Delivery Site?
Anyways-My Spouse Delivers Pizza as a side job kind of thing..He's been doing that for like almost 2 years. So he knows A TON about what's supposed to be tipped. Whenever we order pizza he gets finiky about what I'm going to tip.
Anyways-I usually tip like 2 or 3 dollars, depending on where he came from, I may tip like 5 dollars. But my Spouse ran fully off of tips, there was no hourly pay. It was just tips, and well...Delivery Charges.

That's another thing to keep into consideration when tipping delivery guys, There's usually a Delivery Charge, and Depending on how far away you are, it may get kind of expensive, and most likely the guy wont tell you how much that was if not asked. So say your Delivery Guy gets 3 dollars for driving out to your house, and you tip him 5 bucks. He's now got 8 dollars, just from that one delivery. My Spouse can make Quite a Bit of money on a busy night. More than a normal job would pay.

Depends on the cost of the food, just like in a restaurant. My rule of thumb for tipping is 10% for hohum but not BAAAAAAAD service, 15% for normal service, 20% for exceptional service. Our pizza usually runs about $23, and the service is usually very good, so he usually gets $4. I gather we're their only customer in this area, so I guess he likes coming here.

Same as Fran (rapunzel47), it depends on the service, if they are longer than they said they would be, or the food isn't hot (or at least the boxes) they get a lot less.

I start at $5, and at the restaurant/bar where I used to work, if the guy came at the end of the shift, we'd start with a $20 - keep in mind, though, that road conditions do make a big influence on increasing the tip. the way I figure it, if the driver comes out in a blizzard, driving on black ice, s/he's certainly reduced the risk of MY having to drive it & I give a bonus accordingly.

I usually tip around 20%, but if the service is excessively awful I tip 15%. I would never be so inhumane as to forgo a tip...there are probably a lot of things out of the waitstaff's control that can make service bad, and like others have said, this is their income. The hourly pay is little if any.

We usually end up spending $12 and giving the pizza guy $4- will do $5 if it gets any higher, but it's just the two of us and we never have a bill over $17 or so. We tip at least 20% for our pizza guys and servers.

Usually $3 or so. We live litterally less than a mile from the pizza place. Most of the time we just go pick it up.

I live right above a pizza place, and I still get delivery. What makes it worse, is I work there too. Sometimes I'm just in PJ's or no-make up face, and don't feel like it.
The next door neighbors get delivery too. lol.

I wanna hear from the Pizza Guy what the correct amt to tip is - I have no idea.

It works out to between $2-3 usually. The order is around $12.50 and I give him $15. It is more for convience sake than knowing the right amt. If it is raining or snowing though I usually chip in more.

My usual place gets it to me within 20 min (not a chain) so I figure I must be doings something right if they are always getting there so fast?

If I lived over a pizza place....I'd be soooooo fat! Oh my would I be fat! But I'd be happy too!

Mine charges $3.95 for delivery so being as close as they are we usually pick up, so I don't tip excessively. As long as the service is good, I tip 20% + at restaurants

Will Scott F the pizza guy come back to his thread please and tell us the pizza delivery tip etiquette please ?

post #19 of 22
I would like to know the proper etiquette too!!

Our bill is usually about 15 dollars and I usally tip anywhere from 2-4 depending on the service (is it hot? etc.). If it gets here quick, the order is right, its hot, and the delivery guy is pleasant, sometimes I just give them a 20 and let them keep the change (usually 5 bucks or more).

Plus, most pizza places now charge for delivery!

I usually tip a couple bucks....but it depends on the total amt, how far away we order from, also the weather is big for me... if it's crappy out, and I don't feel like going out, and order in, I tip a few dollars more, cause it's yucky to go out in the rain and I appreciate it being brought to me in such conditions. Same thing with the snow....


PS.....ScottF, did you go to CHS? Do you eat gravy fries from the Hamilton??? creepy when someone knows about carlisle isn't it?

I live in the middle of nowhere and the pizza places I like don't deliver there so I usually have to pick it up on the way home from work. But in the rare event that I do get something delivered, I tip approx 15%, unless it's super speedy, in which case I will add an extra dollar or two.
