For any one that ordered, did you add a tip?


I'm very conflicted about tipping on Amazon prime now. I read an article a while back about how some gig economy companies will use the tip to cover the salary, but perhaps that was before companies got in trouble for doing that.

I didn't tip and I went and exchanged the Dr Pepper at the local super market for better soda.

I tipped. Amazon suggested $5 but that's almost a 50% tip! I lowered it to $3 but had Prime Now rewards to make shipping free. $15 for two 12-packs of soda is a ripoff when the grocery stores have 4 for $10-12 sales all the time, but $15 for two 12-packs and $20 PSN is a great deal. Thanks.

Someone is driving to my house to bring me stuff, so I tip - same as any other delivery person. Key as a cheap ass for me is to order enough to justify the extra 5 bucks.

I don't drink soda. Thinking about handing the drinks back to the guy as the tip...

"Only one offer per customer will apply for the duration of the promotion period."

 

You think a second account that's linked to my Prime account and has the same address would work or not?

Yes. Although I'm cheap ass gamer/person, I still tip for the delivery service. And getting soda and extra psn credits are enough to justify the whole deal :D

Solid deal, don’t need soda but with a few dog treats, tp and $1 Halloween candy thrown in, it made sense to order.

Guinea pigged this one - no dice. Got code immediately for first order, still nothing for the second.

Follow up - apparently this promotion has been running for over a month, as I accidentally met the requirements and received a code a month ago that I did not notice until now. 

 

Whoops.

So I've put this somewhere before, but, a refresher is always good. Amazon prime now drivers made(6 months ago)/make 18 dollars an hour(this could have risen when amazon changed all normal employee rates to 15 an hour. They use their own vehicles, they pay for all their gas, insurance, etc. None of this gets reimbursed by Amazon. They are hired as contractors.

I understand the trepidation, Amazon is very good about the tips being paid out though. I however refuse to tip in the app or on the browser. You want to make sure the driver gets the tip? Cash is king.

There's no way in hell I tip if anyone makes minimum wage or more. It has nothing to do with being cheap - you're doing your job just like everyone else in this country. "Providing service for you"? It's your damn job, no shit that's you're paid to do. In any other country tipping has not changed, it's something you'd do if someone goes above and beyond. Only America has ruined this concept by instilling lax pay laws for servers and whatnot which employers take full advantage of as that's money they save by passing along the expense to their customers who are expected to tip. If they really make 18 an hour anyone would be insane to tip them.

Because once you take in all the expenses they incur they get paid less than minimum wage.

Thanks OP, I tried this the other day and it worked well.
Slight overpay for the soda- but worth it for the $20 code.

Practically all companies pay a base less then minimum wage to servers and such, and the tips are what covers the difference to even it out.

As someone that cooks in a high volume restaurant, our servers only get “paid” $2.15/hr. And by the time they get that check, all of that money goes towards their taxes. Most time they only receive a pay stub that reads “This is not a check”.

I don't understand how people are paying less than 15$ for this thing, unless they are using Amazon Fresh. For me, 2 boxes of 12 cans is $10.98, tax is $1.42, bottle deposit fee is $1.20, and the lowest amount to pay for delivery is $4.99. That amounts to $18.59 and that's without tip.

 

Not really much of a deal for me, since I don't really like 7up.

A lot of us have PrimeNow promo credits from No-Rush shipping, alternatively you could also just order some other random stuff you need to get the free shipping minimum.
