A survey by CreditCards.com finds despite one-third of Americans vowing to be better tippers in 2020 and 2021, the amount of people tipping has decreased.
In 2022, 73% of Americans say they always tip when going to restaurants, which is down from 77% in 2019, and 75% in 2021.
Tipping has actually gone up for hairstylists/ barbers, with 66% of people say they always tip their stylist, up from 63% in 2019.
When given tipping suggestions, 26% are inspired to give more than the suggested amount, with 7% giving “much more.”
Would you say that you tip more now than you did pre-pandemic or less?
