Never heard of a bonus being taken back, but maybe he will bonus you again if you email to tell him of his mistake, lol
Maybe I should try this lol.

!!! What is going on?!? He just sent me another bonus!
There is a possibility that he didn't bonus you the right amount the first time, so he added another bonus

make sure you call Elizabeth Warren and tell her Microsoft techs are spying on your computer because they keep calling you! :wink:

I just say "How did you get this number? Do you have any idea who you just called? Do you have any idea how much trouble you're in right now?"

Or "What are you wearing?"

Or fake-cover the receiver and fake yell "just 20 more seconds to trace."

But mostly I screen calls.

Either way, I'll take it. It sure was a pleasant surprise.
This was my best bonus from a while ago. Anyone beat me?

You've received a bonus from Ohio State for work related to 3O0M2G5VC6F3IQVA4R1MBAI91M894S.
The value of your bonus is: $140.00 USD

The Requester included this note:
You were randomly selected to receive additional pay based upon your performance. Part 4 was chosen for payment. You solved 14 problems correctly and earned $140.

I'm not hoping for the big bonuses. See that black cloud over me when I do a survey with a bonus that says bonuses up to $5 and I only get like 50 cents or a buck? :wink:

I'm more estatic that I just completed the survey for $5, my highest base pay survey ever in my just over 2 months of turking. Anything else is gravy, even if just a buck.

Though it is mostly my fault for not keeping track of bonus money promised, I would say that I don't ever see the bonus in some surveys or experiments, games, etc.

I keep a pretty detailed track of them and it's frustrating how often I've had to contact them because it had been a month or longer and I never received them, it's probably close to 50 times by now. They almost always pay them after, but I can't help wonder how many of them wouldn't have if I never reached out.

Anybody do the Noa Big Bang Theory hits? Can I really do them without watching the show?
Yeah, he asks how familiar you are with the show when he determines which qual to give you. He wants people who watch and people who don't.
