Financial Advice and Money Etiquette

  • Building superintendent$20 to $100, depending on how responsive and helpful your super has been.
  • Doorman$20 to $100. If there are multiple doormen, $15 or more for each is fine; if you have only one, then the higher end of that range is more appropriate, especially if he is friendly and does a lot for you. The average holiday tip is $50.
  • Elevator operator/other building staff$20 to $50. Check with your building association to see if there is a holiday tip pool that is shared by all of the building’s employees.
