Do you guys tip the delivery person? I find it not so slickdeal if I have to pay extra for something I already paid for. Don't tell me to pick it up blah blah blah or don't go out to eat blah blah blah, the money I paid already included the delivery fee or service fee if there's a separate charge then they should not advertise it on their menu. I disagree on tipping, just my 2 cents.
you are supposed to tip, but nothing stops you from not tipping. People always have excuse.

What I meant was you know when you look at the menu, it said minimum delivery, that means they WILL deliver if I order from them. So for example I buy a lunch for $10, then that $10 covers my food and delivery. If they want more to deliver it then they should raise the price of their food and not EXPECT us consumers to tip them to cover for their delivery expense.
The minimum delivery amount is just so that the restaurant can gauge whether it's worth their time to send out a delivery person. For example, the minimum is usually over $5 or $10 because sending out a delivery person for a small order usually isn't worth it.

I do not know of any restaurants that set aside an amount as tips that go to the delivery person, regardless of the minimum delivery amount.

If you do not want to tip, that's up to you. I'm not here to tell you that you're supposed to, but am just answering your original question of "Do you guys tip the delivery person?" as well as to state my personal reasons for tipping. That said, however, I just pick up the food myself the vast majority of the time.

Why am I "supposed" to? I already paid for my meal.

Don't get me wrong, I always tip 15% but that's because I'm obligated to.

Just that personally I feel we're not "supposed" to, it's just in America.

Everywhere in the world you get great services without tipping, here you get treated like shit and still have to put money in their pockets.

FYI this is from a Reddit.com comment on the NYC subreddit:

There is the link to how this came to be.

That is very cool of them. Honestly, this single act of theirs will make me order from them instead of LivingSocial in the future, as long as the prices are the same on both sites.

Did anyone use this very, very recently (less than half an hour ago)? My friend stated the coupon only gave him 10% off, not $10 off.

Edit: There's been an update to the code: "Wow, reddit, you are amazing! We were totally caught off guard, so we had to change the code to 10%. For new customers, get $7 with code Food7. Sorry we had to change it, but look for some royally awesome stuff coming down the pipeline. New ads are on their way, too, so feel free to grammar check. Now I've got to get back to trying to get this cat out of the wall." (source: http://www.reddit.com/r/nyc/comme...he/c7uqgep.)
