I don’t know about you, but I could use some pointers on tipping. There are so many variables to take into consideration when tipping it can get a little confusing. Depending on where you are, what you’re doing and how the service is, the amount you tip can vary a lot. Some people have a set amount they tip no matter what, whereas some people never tip. While a lot of it comes down to personal choice, I would think there has to be some sort of guideline on tipping. So, I decided to research some helpful pointers on tipping so you’ll be prepared, no matter what!

Let’s start off these pointers on tipping with the most common place, a sit-down restaurant. According to EmilyPost.com, the standard is 15-20% but of course you can always tip more for outstanding service. If you’re dining at a buffet, 10% is recommended by HowStuffWorks.com.If you used a coupon or received a discount, remember to calculate the tip based on the price without the discount. Remember that the server still did the same amount of work regardless of the discount!
