keep hearing this being mentioned, can someone tell me what it is please
The only sad part is that they now place an enforced gratuity on every bill where the card is used I always considered it as a device to just pay for the tip anyway but anytime I see an automatically added gratuity it annoys meOriginally Posted by lisaw, post: 108938
there's a little bit of % creep taking effect too. V&A (and somewhere else I can't remember) for example auto-charge 20% not 18. Now, not that I resent it, you'd have to be a pretty bitter person not to tip at least 20% to v&a *BUT* nevertheless, it should be optional and at your discretion.Originally Posted by lisaw, post: 108941
Really? I haven't been to V&A so I haven't seen the 20%.Originally Posted by Keith, post: 108943
I found that Disney was actually cheating it's servers by adding the 18% in. I apparently tip more than that.
A yes, a tip should always be optional and at one's own discretion. I think they started adding it in because people were tipping on the discounted rate. Other places tend to add in the tip if you are using a coupon as well.
