Do I tip my personal shopper? I suspect the answer is yes. If so, how much? Snowflakes inside.

On Sunday I will have my first session with my personal shopper, who is an acquaintance through a mutual friend. She's charging me her friends rate of $30/hour rather than her usual rate of $50/hour. I don't know entirely what to expect as I've never done this before, but I imagine our session would last 3-5 hours. Would I tip 15%+ as at a restaurant? Should I calculate on the discounted rate or as though it were her regular rate (like the way you tip on the full bill when you use a Groupon at a restaurant)? Thanks!
