A new survey finds millennials are the worst tippers in the US


NEW YORK (Circa) - Millennials are good at spending money and bad at leaving tips, according to a new study by CreditCards.com.

The survey of 1,000 adults found that 10 percent of Americans ages 18 to 37 routinely leave no tip.

Nearly one-third of those who do tip leave less than 15 percent -- an amount that is traditionally considered a standard base when leaving a gratuity.

The survey also found that about 1 in 6 young adults say they choose the lowest option for suggested tips. Meanwhile, 1 in 5 respondents said they don't tip at all.

So, what's the solution? Well, about 27 percent of millennials said they favor the option of having to pay more in service charge fees instead of tipping altogether.

More findings from the study:

  • Nearly 55 percent of seniors age 65 and up said they tip 20 percent or more at restaurants, the highest of any age groups.
  • The median tip from women is 20 percent, compared with just 16 percent from men.
  • Just 13 percent of white restaurant customers said they typically tip less than 15 percent, compared with 48 percent of blacks and 36 percent of Hispanics.
  • Diners in the South and West tend to tip less, and Southern customers are most likely of all (7 percent) to stiff servers and wait staff.
  • On average, those with higher incomes and college degrees are bigger tippers.
