No other demographic group tips as little as millennials when dining out, according to a new survey.
One in 10 millennials say they don’t tip servers when dining out, compared to 3% of older consumers, according to data from the marketplace site CreditCards.com, which surveyed 1,000 people.
When they do tip, millennials don’t tip as much as others: The median restaurant gratuity for millennial diners is 15%, less than the overall median of 18%. Some 51% of restaurant consumers older than 38 normally tip at least 20%, the survey found.
Interestingly, 30% of the youngest group of millennials, ages 18-27, said they would rather pay more for food in restaurants than having to leave a tip. Just 13% of baby boomers agreed.
