Tipping in the US can be overwhelming for Aussies. We know it’s customary to give a little something to hotel staff, but how much is enough? Should you tip the bellhop as much as the housekeeper, and what about the concierge? Does staying at an all-inclusive resort mean you’re off the hook?


For years I never tipped housekeeping in the US hotels I stayed at. I can't remember when I first discovered that tipping housekeeping in America was a thing, but I remember being mortified that I hadn't done it up to that point.

Since then, I've made it a point to tip at least a few dollars everywhere I stay but have honestly never really perfected what the "right" amount is. Until now.


Here at the Lifehacker office we love a good old fashioned tipping comp. But we're also a bunch of nerds, so rather than betting on football teams, we guess who will be the next character to die on Game of Thrones. Here's how you can set a comp up for your own mates and co-workers.
