    Yes. Also the cc company charges 2% on the tip so the wait staff are getting slightly less than you think.

    You didn't get phone calls from VISA and MC reps who had to deal with irate restaurant patrons complaining about unauthorized extra charges being added to their cards?

    You asked earlier if it was moral. Answer is no, it is fraud.

    I always try to tip in cash, so that the server, stylist, attendant doesn't lose out on the merchant fees.
