Just curious. My bonuses are, at present, 12% of my total earnings. Is that high, low, about right in your experience? When I started 5 weeks ago I did not think of getting compensation above the HIT amount. Quite thrilled, actually.

Honestly, I am not sure what is normal. My lifetime bonuses are like 6% of my lifetime earnings

I'm not going to disclose numbers, but I will say that bonuses are definitely a consideration when I take hits on, and there are times and weeks where a good portion of my Turk income comes from bonuses. It pays to notice which hits offer a bonus.

I have days when my bonus will be 10% or more of my earnings, but my overall average is about 6.6%. There are some hits that don't appear to pay well on the surface, but they have a really good bonus attached to them.
