Why Don’t Safeway Delivery Drivers Accept Tips?

The explanation of Safeway is that their employees are not allowed to accept tips from customers. All other companies in the Albertsons’s corporate family have the same policy.

In other words, tipping goes against Wal-Mart’s parent company policy and is, therefore, an inflexible rule to abide by.

Safeway’s website also states that for many years they have never received tips. They would also like to remind the public that they do not accept tips.

Customers should not ask delivery drivers about their salaries or tips, as the company doesn’t pay them to work.

Does Safeway Accept Tips Through Instacart?

Because customer’s are able to pay directly within the app, and the delivery app shows what is going to be delivered but the order is not sent to the delivery person.

When a customer places an order through Instacart, the customer is prompted to pay a little extra for tips.

In order for the driver to receive the tip, the customer must have registered for a new account with the company.

In the past, customers were urged not to insist upon tipping regular Safeway Delivery drivers.
