Online grocery shopping-Should you/Do you tip ?

Recommended Posts

I had my shopping delivered for the first time today and i felt the driver was expecting a tip but didnt have much change worth giving anyway. Should you give them a tip and if you do, how much do you give them ?

I've given the FedEx guy an ice cold can of root beer on a hot day. :)

I've never got the "I Want a Tip" feeling off them, and I wouldn't tip them....Its the supermarket's job to pay them a decent wage for their job ;)

I'd guess that's against any large supermarket's policy, and if they knew the person delivering who's trying for tips, he may get a word or two in the ear

If they're polite & helpful I'll tip them. But it also depends on how much money I have on me at the time. But I usually give them two or three quid.

It's a pants job - the supermarkets don't want you to do it - but if I get good polite service I always tip em. If I get my regular driver at Xmas I also put a fiver in a card.

I don't tip my Ocado driver, and I've never seen a driver with that hopeful look on their face.

Nope. We get Sainsbury deliveries once a month and have never once even felt that they expected a tip.

I use Ocado and Sainsburys and have never ever had a driver hang about or look like he wants a tip. If it's cold I'll offer a coffee, warm I'll offer water juice etc. Normally they can't get away fast enough, but that might say something more about me.....
