    Re: Looking for an EZ Tip Calculator

    I always round the amount the meal cost (inc. tax) up to the nearest multiple of $10 and then calculate 20% on that. I am always suprised when people start deep calculations on a tip as the difference between an OK tip and a nice tip is usually a couple of bucks.

    I tend to over tip for the reasons already stated.

    this is a waste, no offense. But on your calculator, all you had to do is multiple you bill times .15 and that's the amount if you pay 15% on every check.....i don't get it ?

    I normally use 20% since it's easy to computer (take dollar amount, multiply x 2), so a $35 check would be $7.

    However, when you calculate tip, you base it on the meal total, BEFORE tax. And always make sure gratuity hasn't already been added (like for a large group).
