Too Much Tipping? Americans Have Had Enough



A recent survey conducted by Pew Research provides fresh insights into the tipping habits of Americans. The comprehensive study, encompassing nearly 12,000 adults, underscores the significance of good service when it comes to tipping behaviors, with 77% of respondents acknowledging that the quality of service directly influences both the amount and likelihood of tipping.

Breaking down tipping patterns across various service sectors, the survey uncovered that 81% of adults indicated that they always tip at restaurants with servers. In contrast, tipping for haircuts, another service-oriented sector, was reported by 65% of respondents as a consistent practice.

The study also delved into situations where traditional tipping norms may not apply, such as those encountered in coffee shops or restaurants without servers. When faced with the customary prompt to tip on a cashier-operated screen, only 12% of respondents claimed to always tip at coffee shops, and merely 7% reported always tipping at restaurants without servers.

The survey shows that there are evolving attitudes towards tipping over the years. 72% of Americans expressed the belief that tipping has become more expected today than it was five years ago. With the increase in tipping expectations, it comes as no surprise that more and more people are going through tip fatigue. A summer survey conducted by Bankrate revealed that 66% of Americans hold negative views about tipping.
