Yes, every year! Our mailman is so nice and friendly, and we think it is the right thing to do. $20 and a thank you card is a pretty easy way to make someone happy and make a Kiddush Hashem!

That is very generous of you. I would suggest giving a gift card the next time. They should not be accepting cash.

I give a GC to our mailman.  He's great.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Standard tip in Israel is 12%

-1

It's the other way around. %10 is standard; %12 is mehadrin.
