Tipping for Delivered Groceries, Peapod, etc.

dagwood | Apr 3, 200807:53 AM     23

If you have your groceries delivered (I use Peapod here in the Northeast), how much do you tip?

In every other situation (dining out, takeout, delivery, etc.) I generally tip fairly well, a minimum of 20% unless something was really wrong. But clearly that's a bit extreme when it comes to a $150 or $200 grocery order. So, how much do you tip?

I generally tip $5-7 unless the weather is bad or I have really heavy items, then I go up to $10 (and have even done $20 when we were in the middle of a horrible snow/ice/wind thing.) But I have no idea if I'm being fair or not; so, what do others tip for groceries?

Thanks!
