    I always give them $3-5 unless we have a big order or they got to our house really fast, but usually for one/two pizzas 3-5 is plenty

    Usually a couple of bucks…so I guess that ends up being 10% or 15% since our takeout is usually around $20 or $30

    @maureen9004: I generally tip 5 bucks. I usually go pick it up, especially if there are a ton of them.

    It usually ends up being between 10-15% of the bill because I tip between $2-$5 depending on how big the order is, but not how fast it arrives because with seamlesseweb I tip ahead of time so I can put it on my credit card.

    I usually tip a few dollars which probably ends up being 10%-15% of the bill.

    $2 because it is a rare occasion that we order a pizza. Our pizza place is a mile from out house.

    I’ve often wondered about this as well. I always tip 20% because I figure that is what you are supposed to tip waiters and this is even better – they are driving the food to me ๐Ÿ™‚

    I rarely have it delivered either, but usually 20-30%.  I always feel bad for pizza delivery people for some reason.  It’s not like normal waitressing jobs, and I think it must be torture to ride around smelling pizza all the time.  Plus, I feel like that’s a job that a lot of college kids have, or people having difficulty finding a job, so I want to help them out a little. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I suppose I should add that I tip about $5 because when we order it’s under $20. Generally if I were ordering a bigger order I would pick it up myself.

    20% or if it’s a smaller order 5 bucks. Always at least 5 though.

    I honestly wouldn’t even know either! Darling Husband is very adamant about going to pick it up so we don’t have to tip lol.

    I feel uncomfortable tipping under $4 for anything, so usually at least that much.

    I usually tip 10% which ends up being a few dollars…. If the weather is bad, like if it’s raining hard or we’re having a bad snowstorm I always tip a lot more because I feel bad that they are riding around in crappy weather while I’m sitting in my warm, dry home. ๐Ÿ™

    We generally order at the max 2 pizzas at a time.

    I shoot for $4, sometimes $5
