Where are our good tippers at?

Now more than ever, folks in the service industry rely on tips to make a living, but not every patron is generous when it comes to acknowledging the service provided with some extra cash. And it certainly seems that folks in some parts of the country are way more generous than in others.

Upgraded Points has come out with a new report revealing where in the country people are good and bad tippers for goods and services. They also looked at why Americans do and do not tip. They determined their findings by surveying 3,500 people for a week asking questions about their tipping habits. The best tippers apparently live in New Hampshire, where 19.6% of residents say they tip 25% or more, followed by Ohio where 19.2% say the same.
