The other night we used an email coupon and a gift card to go out. Because of the coupon, we saved $7 on our meal, but we tipped on the pre-coupon total.
It is important to remember when eating out with a coupon to always tip on the original amount. Tipping on the discounted bill is cheap not frugal and gives deal seekers a bad reputation.
We usually tip 20% as both my husband and I both worked restaurant jobs and have an appreciation for how hard servers work. People in America tip between 15-20% for good service at a restaurant. I’ve never not tipped for bad service, but I did leave 10% one time for an absolutely horrible server. What about you? What is your tipping policy?
