Tipping

Whats the tipping culture like in the US? Im going to Vegas for 10 days and I'm worried about how much tipping will I have to do. Is 200 dollars just for tips enough for ten days?

    15%-20% of all meals, that's all you gotta worry about.

      It's this and in the US sales tax is around 7.5-9.5 percent and is extra so you can kinda go by that to get an idea of what 15-20% is.

      1 Dollar per beer is the norm, 10% and round up to the next dollar for anything else. Keep in mind some Vegas places now include tip in the bill at 18%, it's fricking dumb.

      You should also tip wienertail waitresses and bartenders even if the casino is offering you complimentary drinks. You don't really have to but you'll find that if you don't they might not come back to offer you more.
      You should also tip dealers if you win. Again you don't have to but you're more likely to be offered compensated things if you do.
      Taxis/uber should get around a 10% tip. Give them a few extra dollars for loading heavy bags. Valets should get a few dollars per trip. Hotel bellhops should get $5 per bag but not more than $20.
      Vegas has a very strong tip culture where even locals tip each other for stupid shit (maybe because they feel like sharing their own tips idk) so when in doubt tips are unlikely to be turned down.

    Don’t worry, the tipping culture is a total meme. No one will give a shit if you don’t tip.

    The standard rate used to be 15% but they are continually increasing it, even ten years ago people were telling me the new normal was 20% for meals. These days you hear about 25% tips.

    It’s 15% and that is pre-tax. Check the bill and only tip on the meal cost. Some morons include a tip on the sales tax.

    One thing to realize OP is that many Americans brag about how much they tip when in reality it's closer to 10%. Keep in mind wait staff basically never reports tips in cash to the IRS and lots goes under the table, if they make less than min wage per hours work the business has to make up the difference.

    I don't tip in restaurants when travelling, they do <5mins work for you, why do I care to pay their wages for that and I wont see them again. I think they are some of the least deserving for it anyway especially that they expect it, I would rather they frick off and leave me alone instead of pretend to be nice

    If I do a tour that was good, like a couple hours or even some all day ones then I tip for that, but I recently didn't tip one that was asking for tips

    Tip in places where you want the tipee to favor you, like at a bar. I think it’s customary in Vegas to tip your dealer if you hit it big at a gambling table. If a bell boy helps you with your stuff and you have cash, give them a couple bucks cause they will otherwise try to persuade the other staff to not be hospitable to you. Money talks more than smiles in Vegas.

    Tipping isn't a law and you don't have to do it. Waiters are people with no skills who don't want to or aren't hot enough to strip, but want tips for smiling at you anyway. They think they deserve a bonus for doing their job. A bartender I could understand.

    Anyway if you aren't a regular they won't know who you are or that you won't tip until after you've eaten so they can't do shit. Be polite to them, and pay your bill.

    I tip if the waiter goes out of their way to make our stay pleasant or if they are very helpful. If they don't then I'm not going to pay their salary for doing their jobs. That's their employers responsibility and in the US they are required by law to pay waiters minimum wage if the wage+tips equals any less than that. And I'm not going to hand someone free money just because they make minimum wage either

      >tip higher (~20%) in higher-cost cities like New York and San Francisco.
      Yikes. It's a percentage, it doesn't need to go up. Not with more expensive cities. Not with inflation. I view tipping as a charity and I don't go over 20% ever unless they give me free shit. "Here's a $2 tip for the overpriced drink that the last few people didn't even leave you a tip on"

    Tipping in Vegas is annoying as frick. Literally everyone in the city is trying to hustle you for a buck.

    Ignore everyone who isn't an employee of the casino you're in. Casino employees will have nametags with the casino logo

    For drinks I'd normally give $5 for the first drink then another 1 or 2 bucks for each drink depending how shitty the service is. Last time i was in Vegas the only prompt wienertail service i had was PH (at the bar by the casino entrance) Venetian (bar by casino entrance) and Paris (gaming floor) and the PH sportsbook.

    Also be careful of certain areas of casinos not offering free drinks to players. I got scammed into paying $21 for a shot of fireball at the Wynn because i didn't notice the bar had a sign that said drinks weren't complementary for players.

    I can go on and on if you have any more Vegas questions.

      Tip only service staff. If all they do is flip an iPad around and are asking for a tip then just choose 0%.

    People aren't lying when they say tipping is a scam, but not for the reasons typically thought of. Places like diners, restaurants, bars, etc. get away with paying their employees subpar wages because the employees could collect tips, but tipping is so inconsistent that it's not enough to makes ends meet. That's why you get so many frustrated waiters and waitresses trying to hustle you for money, but they're often too stupid to realize it's their employers that they should be blaming.

      yeah and that turned into being guilt tripped, put into an awkward position to remove automatically added service charges, and implied threats of tampering with my food, if you don't leave a tip. that's why they don't deserve a tip for such a minimal amount of work for me

    Tip 20% of the bill to waitstaff, $1-5 per drink to bartenders, and $5-20 to valet. That’s it. Don’t tip anyone else. If you’re unsure, just ask another American if it’s customary to tip. “Excuse me. I’m not from here. Is it customary to tip X” “Yes? How much?” Don’t ask the person you could be tipping or his coworkers.

    Tip 15-20% in pre-tax on meals with table service and bar tabs.
    Other places like coffee shops and "fast food" restaurants that serve you at a counter might ask for a tip when you pay, just select "no tip" on the tablet. You're not expected to tip there if you don't want to.

    Someone should tell the woke people that the mostly white waiters and bartenders get tipped and therefore make more money than the mostly PoC kitchen staff

    Tipping requests are nearly universal in the USA these days. Don't feel obligated to pay every time you are asked if you want to leave a tip. 10% is suitable for basic service at a sit-down restaurant - take your order, bring your order. If staff go out of their way to serve you and pamper you, then they deserve a larger tip, say 20-25%, but if they are busy, they are making plenty of tips, so no need to be overly generous. Some staff will get snotty when you don't tip, but chances are they just have a bad attitude.
