Coupons and Gratuity

Have a general question about tipping. Should a diner tip based on the discounted price of a meal or the regular price of their meal? I have a nephew who is a server and I often hear the complaint that when there is a special... 1/2 price drinks or apps etc... he doesn't make his regular tips. Would love some feedback.

  1. Always tip on what the full amount of the bill would have been, and then adjust it according to the quality of the service (not the food).

    1. Always tip on the full amount of the bil before discount. The server should not be punished for the discount.

      1. I too always tip on the bill before the discount is applied.
