Get a Tip Jar (Picture)

This is the visual that should greet every passenger when they get into your vehicle. It gives them the idea that everyone tips, and well, I've found that people have a weird habit of wanting to do what everyone else does. A properly presented tip jar, pre-stuffed, will double your tips in the app and in cash.

Today I topped a hundred bucks in tips which was so outstanding that I wanted to share this little secret with you. You won't get nearly a hundred bucks in tips every day, but you will get more than before. And if more of you would adopt this little gimmick, more and more passengers will see that everyone tips, and thus more and more drivers like you and me will routinely be tipped.

You are welcome, fellow ants. Now do it!

I'm going to put a jar in my car full of dollar bills and when pax ask what it is, I'll tell them it's my ass cancer fund for when I have to pay for my ass cancer from sitting in an Uber all day long, eating fast food, and stressing out over the shady dude who sits right behind my driver's seat and plays a zombie shooting game at full volume so I get to guess which gunshot is the real one.

congratulations Jared the Uber driver, your ass cancer fund became your funeral fund. oh wait, no it didn't, because the chintzy Uber pax stole it after shooting you.

Forget the tip jar, go full force on the begging!

I put this sign in:

If that doesn't work then on to plan B. He sits in my back seat and we split 60-40 minus car sitting privilege fees.:

"Uber driver sentenced to 25 years for stuffing tip jar with counterfeit bills he printed himself."
Instead of In God we trust replace with "Non ad robora est gratia". We exist to encourage gratitude. Ain't no stinking juror gonna find you guilty, unless it's an uber rider in which case see you in about 20 to 30 years.

IF your going to do a tip jar, cut slice in the top of a peanut butter jar (or whatever) and super glue the lid shut.

Then cut an "access hole" and wrap the hole with your new label.

And then bejazzle it with "please tip my daddy" to make it look like a 4 year old made it.

No kids?

Well...

i'd do it anyway.

This is an amateur suggestion that will backfire on your tips and ratings. Simply subtly display a few $5 bills in your ash tray or console so it is visible but not blatantly obvious and provide good service and watch the tips flow in. If i saw a jar like this I would consistently drop in a nickel and 1 star you for begging. $100 in cash tips in a day? yeah right.

I like your tip jar. The only thing wrong is, DONT PUT REAL MONEY IN IT. I would color Xerox a one dollar bill and a five dollar bill and place those counterfeit bills in the jar.
PAX WILL REACH IN AND GRAB YOUR MONEY WHILE PRETENDING TO PUT MONEY IN.

3 years and 10000 rides (sigh) tells us unequivically that you are wrong. When i said the tips double both in app and in cash, this is not hyperbole. This is literally what happened, and others who have actually implemented the idea report similar in this thread. But dont let actual experience get in the way of your blissful ignorance, my fine friend.

Heh. You are driving the wrong pax!

I might have to try this out... 🤔

Even $10 extra per day would make it worth the trouble.
Expect that it will double your tips, in app and cash both.

Then my final pax of the night would rate me one star because I had an "empty mint jar." :frowner:
Dont forget the seed money. Very important to look popular.
