Restaurant Tips – Giving Your Customers the Right Credit Card Tips
Restaurant Tips are given out by the owners and operators of many restaurants to prove that they care and put a lot of effort into their operation. This is one way that they show appreciation to their regular customers as well as to potential ones. Some restaurants offer a tip pool so that tipped employees will be encouraged to work more and do more, in order to earn more. This tip pool can benefit not only the restaurant itself but also the employees, because they will be getting tips from many other restaurants as well, hence helping them build up more tips, hence increasing their earning power and hopefully enabling them to eventually purchase a tip free life insurance policy that will cover them completely.
Many restaurants offer a service that allows its patrons to leave a ‘tip’ for the waitress by tipping the restaurant a certain amount of money when they have finished with their meal. The restaurant then adds up the difference between the charge and the tipped amount and passes this on to the employee. However, in some restaurants this service has been abused by some patrons who end up leaving a lot of cash on the table and the restaurant is not given a sufficient amount to cover for the service rendered. To prevent this, the owners of such restaurants have begun using plastic money as a ‘tip’ since the service charges do not include taxes and other hidden charges that are added to the food and drink. In some cases, restaurants have resorted to taking out legal action against those patrons who consistently use plastic money instead of cash, which they have done to the restaurant till it can no longer afford to support the service.
Another great idea that restaurant tips can be given is through the use of a plastic credit card. A restaurant owner can give out restaurant tips using a credit card, which is linked directly to their bank account, and which contains a certain percentage of the bill as a charge, and then deduct a certain amount from that amount before they deposit it in their bank account. They can make as many deposits as they want, up to $100 maximum. This ‘bribe’ from a customer, who is then required to pay a portion of his bill at the end of the meal, is an excellent incentive for the server and also serves to keep the customer happy, because by the time they get home, their bill will still be less than what they would have paid with the credit card in the first place.
