Yes, like $5 (or less if that's all I have...)
If you tip and can get the same guy i find they'll be more willing to come by on "your" schedule!! Chat Icon

I always gave him like $3, unless it was a rush delivery, late at night or bad weather, then I would give $5-$6.

I tip them $5 if they show up within the times they give me or if it's bad weather. I gave nothing a couple of times, b/c he showed up more than an hour after the window...and at 11 at night.

If on time and courteous yes. I probably will tip anyway, but maybe less for less service.

No, it's not a FedEx guy...Kraupner's sends a delivery guy out to each person.

Wew....I get a fedex delivery because I use Freedom Pharmacy.

I wonder if I would have thought to tip the pharmacy delivery guy. I would be too excited to get my meds and not be able to think properly.

Re: Do I tip the pharmacy delivery guy???

Just had to bounce this in. I went to brunch this morning and forgot my Gonal-F was coming via FedEx (can you believe I forgot?). I missed the delivery and 2nd attempt will be Monday. I really had a panic. I called up fedex, their main number is so annoying to actually get a real person. Anyway, I found out I could pick them up at the local FedEx office after 1:30pm...whew. But, 2 minutes later the doorbell rings and its the FedEx guy who came back b/c he knew it was sensitive medication he had and he wanted to make sure I got my delivery today. I am so amazed. I live in a small town on LI and I love it. He said he knew i would be home soon so he came back.

Then as I closed the door I realized, for that I should have tipped him. But, I didn't have my bag with me. Now I feel bad, i will have to get him next time (or a nice holiday bonus).
