Ill Tip You In The App - But No Tip Appears

Is it just me?

It seems that every time someone says they will tip in the app, there is no tip.

I have to wonder if the customer is just being an asshole and trying to get 5 stars, or if Uber is taking the tip from us.

For the last customer that did this, the next day I put in a complaint through the app and asked Uber to switch the rating to one star and explained the reason.

Not that I'm entitled to a tip, but come on, don't lie to drivers.

I'm in Saskatchewan, Canada.

Are other drivers seeing this as a norm too?

3 biggest lies:
It was like that when I got it.
I was just looking.
I'll pay you on Friday
I'm an actor, I just do this on the side
I promise I won't XXX in your mouth
I'll tip you in the app

and the list goes on.

When they tell me that, I ask them "will you be my FIRST passenger to say that and actually tip me in the app?"

The check is in the mail. Uber is a great career choice. I'm only doing this part time, my real job is as a writer. I'm a social media influencer. Just the tip. I had a wonderful time on our date, I'll call you tomorrow.

Try this reply the next time someone says I'll tip you in the app. THERE YA GO YOU JINXED ME, I"LL NEVER SEE THE TIP. EVERY TIME SOME ONE SAYS THAT THEY GET BUSY AND FORGET TO DO IT. I UNDERSTAND THEY HAVE A LOT GOING ON. BUT THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE YOU A RIDE, I APPRECIATE IT. HAVE A GREAT DAY. Most of the time it works and the tip shows up. If not I just move on with the day. Safe travels

Interesting , never heard that before , maybe it’s just a Canadian thing ? Nice people , but in my dealings with them in the states , they tend not to tip 🤷‍♂️

Just do what I used to do when I drove RideShare - one star rating for each dollar tipped in cash, up to the maximum of five. More cash in the pocket means less cash reported to the uncle.
