Traditional tipping is becoming less commonplace. A new CouponCabin.com poll shows that just 51-percent usually give a tip of 16-percent or more when they dine at a restaurant, while 32-percent will give their server an eleven-to-15-percent tip. But 14-percent leave no more than ten-percent for the wait staff. Meanwhile, 16-percent admit they tend to leave a higher tip at fancy or more expensive restaurants, while 25-percent won't leave any tip when they dine at a more elegant establishment. Just over half say the type of restaurant they're in doesn't matter -- they base their tip solely on the quality of the service they receive. Nearly a third will walk out of a restaurant without leaving any tip if they weren't pleased with their waiter or waitress, while 50-percent "leave a small tip to make a point" about the less-than-satisfactory service. And 26-percent those who save a little money with a coupon or special deal base their tip on the discounted price -- not what would have been the actual total of the meal.
