tipping altogether. >> this was in restaurants so you could just sort o have that built in service fee at restaurants. some places have tried that, right? here in new york denny myers restaurants have tried it. it has not taken off widely. people say it wouldake away that varyability of how much to tip. and then you get w itn you check comes. >> let's talk about the new rules here we'll start with 'rdining. if y in a restaurant, somewhere between 15 and 20%. what if there's a line on the receipt where they've included the tip, and there's a line for additional >> if you thought the service was exceptional. if the server had a per wnal connectih you, feel free to add something extra. if the service charge was built in, that is the tip. >> if you gohe on a regular basis, should that also factor > in? hat might be nice. >> if you've got a large group of people. >> i hate these battles of you had the calamari, i had the
chicken fingers, if you want to do it with technology, there are two apps, settle up, that can dividingawkwardness of tip out of it for you. it will do it automatically. let's moveown to our next rule of tipping. takeout and delivery, a lotpe o le using apps like grub hub, a lot of folks getting their food holivered. whatd we do with our delivery drivers? >> our advice says tip about 20% on thathich may seem like a lot. they're doing quite aervice r you, particularly if the weather is bad. i ordered out over the weekend.w saturday night not particularly pleasant. these guys are coming to your house, either walking or driving there in all kindsr.f weat 20% is the rule of thumb for delivery people. >> i found this very interesting as well. we all go to these coffee shops. when you get a coffee, are you supposed to t the barista? >> 1 to $3 is the general rule. we get some friends over on saturday night. i get a blacoecoffee. that't require a lot.
>> same here, that's what i order. >> there's not a lot of artwork. if you're looking for something fancier and that person extra time, you might want to tip. sometimes local coffee shops, the baristas there might get a tip, but if you work at a national chain, people might be less inclined, which doesn't seem fair for the barista, but it's that local feeling ofki care of people. >> if i order a skinny triple grande caramel macchiato upside down or hot. >> throw them a buck or three. >> so much for that black coffei. >> that's fancy. last but not least, when we're talking about n rules for tipping, we're talking about goods and services, what's the rule on tipping housekeepers at a hotel? >> think 10 to 20% of the bill, maybe 3o $5 a day. again, check the bill, though. some of these might be included in that. you don't have to tip above and beyond that. housekeepers are often forgotten in some cases. they do a lot of work for not a lot of money. if they've done a particularly nice job, a tip would be nice. >> especially if you have small
children in your room. >> speaking from someone who may have had small children in their room. here's something for a lot of people in major metropolitan areas, uber drivers or lyft drivers. how much are we supposed to be tipping these drivers? >> 1020o this is somewhat new for uber. they had the tip built in before, now ubers allowing you to tip drivers, even encouraging it in some cases. if the service was good and you feel like you want to give a little extra, 10 to 20%, much like you would a taxicab. >> it's not our imagination. there are more instances now than there were a few years ago. >> the gig economy isut there, and look at all these apps and the ability to pay by an ipad. oftentimes the tip will come up first, and it might default to 20% ormore. technology makes it easy. we're not dealing with cash. it's a simple touch a it comes on your card or from your venmo. >> thank you so much. useful information there. >> forore on the ever changing guidelines for tipping, be sure to check out today.com. p next, looking to treat a
