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:
- 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.
