Did you guys know that there is a limit as to how much a rider can tip?!

"Uber confirmed to CNET it does have a limit to safeguard against "fat fingers." You know the problem: You want to tip $10 but accidently type $100 or $1,000. This way, you won't have to go through the pain and hassle of getting your money back.

Uber's tipping limit is "200 percent of the total, up to $100," a company spokesman says. That lets a passenger, say, tip $50 on a $25 fare.  "Of course, riders are free to tip additional amounts in cash if they'd like."

    The biggest tip I ever received on the app was 15.00. The bigger tips I got 35.00, 40.00, and 101.00 were in cash.

      You've actually gotten tips for 35, 40, ad 101?  What were the circumstances?  That's insane.  $101? Who the heck are these people?  was the ride $10,000? 

      Here I am conting the pennies on the tips I get.  Maybe I am just not a great driver

        The 101.00 was a short 7 min trip. I picked up husband and wife from bar they were feeling good but didnt seem trashed. I thought it was 2 1.00 bills. When I seen what it was after I pulled away I was shocked. Contacted Uber to reach the couple to make sure it wasn't a mistake. Never heard back. The 40.00 tip was a trip from Philly to NJ just outside of NY. Passenger was in from Ireland he was a steward on a plane visiting a shrine. Just a nice man, pleasant trip, good conversation. The 35.00 tip was from a waitress, another short 10 min trip had a good conversation. Played music she liked. I noticed trips with good conversation and good music make for best tips. Most trips I go out of my way for passengers not many tips. Trips with good conversation good music seem to bring the best tips, nothing special or extra.
