How Much Should I Tip My Newspaper Carrier?

Answer

For the holidays, its customary for some people to tip the service people that serve them throughout the year. The amount people tip ranges widely. Unlike wait staff, where it is typical to tip your server anywhere from 15 to 20 percent depending on the quality of the service you receive, it isnt so cut and dry when tipping out your service personnel. For example, if you pay $500 for home delivery of your newspaper for the entire year, 20 percent would work out to $100. If a paper carrier had a route of 100 people, and everyone tipped 20 percent, that route carrier would get a very handsome $10,000 Christmas bonus. Most would find this an unrealistic amount for the service rendered. Typically, most people report that they give their newspaper carrier between $10 and $30 dollars for the holidays.
