On-Line Grocery Shopping Question

sivyaleah | Aug 29, 2006 04:07 PM

I just placed my first on-line grocery order due to being injured and unable to get out of the house. Didn't bother with anything which I would want to make judgement calls on such as fresh produce or meats, but for stocking up on staples it was very useful (I'm sending my husband out for the small amount we need of those other items since there is only 2 of us at home).

Anyway, the delivery charge was close to $15. Do I need to now tip on top of that when they deliver? While it seems at first glance a hefty price to pay for the luxury of having it brought to my doorstep, it was necessary since my husband's schedule didn't allow for him to make a huge shopping trip and we were running very low on just about everything.

I don't mind tipping if it is appropriate - but what would be? 5-10% of the actual bill, before the delivery charge? Or is on a per bag basis?
