The holiday bills are now rolling in and a question has exploded online thanks to a viral Tik-Tok video.

Can you leave a gift card as a tip for service in a restaurant?

A TikTok user @kaittwest posted a clip of a customer paying a tip in a restaurant, not with cash but a $25 Amazon gift card. The video also features the caption, “Holidays left us #broke.”

This has left the world divided on whether or not this is rude. On one side - a gift card can go a long way and could be worth more than the cash tip would have been. On the flip side, many servers rely on cash tips to pay their mortgage/rent and most banks don’t accept gift cards as payment.
