Last year's holiday tipping poll results were eye opening: Nearly 1,000 of you--55% of our 1,776 poll-takers--said you planned to tip the staff no more than $500 total. Thirty percent planned to tip between $500 and $1,000, and just 15% said you would be shelling out more than $1,000.
But the poll didn't account for two potentially important differentiators: Whether you own or rent, and whether you live in a doorman or a non-doorman building.
Our 2011 two-click Holiday Tipping Poll attempts to tease out those distinctions. Take it now to see how your gratuities stack up.
