CNBC’s Video On How To Save By Tipping Less Draws Outrage

April 9, 2019

Tipping is forever going to be one of those hot-button issues. Some people think you should tip 20% every time; others think you should tip depending on how well the service was, if at all.

CNBC recently tweeted out a video they’d originally done in 2018 about a “tipping trick” to help you save money. What they say you should do is just double the tax instead of tipping on the post-tax total.

The video says this can save you over $400 a year while eating out.

Let’s call it what it is though, their “trick” to save money is to essentially pay servers less, and people were NOT happy about that. Do you agree with with doubling the tax to tip, or is the advice in the video insane?
