Inflation, Pandemic Causes Americans Pull Back on Tipping in 2022

Apparently, when it comes to tipping for good service, Americans have a serious case of alligator arms.

A new study from CreditCards.com concludes Americans “are worse tippers than before Covid-19”.

The study points out that US adults haven’t followed through on a pandemic-era pledge to become better tippers after seeing so many people out of work, or working part-time just to get by.

Earlier studies from CreditCard.com showed that one-third of Americans say they would be more generous with tips in a post-pandemic marketplace, but the new study shows the number of consumers who “always tip” fell from 77% in 2020 to 73 % in 2022.
