I don’t carry cash and haven’t in years. I use credit cards because they’re easy and keep great records for budgeting and taxes. Starbucks doesn’t allow tipping on credit card receipts and despite the fact that I tip 20% or more everywhere I go to eat, I’m not going to search out an ATM just so I can tip on the 30 seconds worth of work it took to pour my venti drip coffee. Of course, if they’ll fix that ridiculous policy, I’d probably start.
This is something I didn’t know. I don’t frequent Starbucks or really like supporting them (plenty of local places in Brooklyn), but I’d like to see them start allowing this, as I’m sure more people would do the same.
