and then. I noticed it three times already that my earnings go up by 0.01 cent in the middle of the day. Today I got it two times and I am very happy about it. Usually my earnings get updated at around 8 or 9 pm my time. But I already get a 2 cents bonus before the update. Gift from myLot? Do you get it too? Thanks a lot myLot!

No! I haven't noticed that yet. I wondr what you get it for, you must be special! The only time I notice is when they update the earnings, which for me is around 8am eastern time. I don't get little updates though!

Na, I don't think I'm that special or what. I have to ask myLot admin about it and let you guys know.

I cannot say that I have ever seen that happen to me though. Only once I saw my earnings go up by 7 cents and then the daily upgrade came in. I have no idea why that happens.

At least you got some increase. Isn't that amazing? I am actually surprised that many of use get it on a regular basis like they get some during or before payouts. They get more, while some get deducted.

I have not noticed this happening but several other members have commented on it before. it is quite amazing how excited we can get about small amounts of money online, whereas a few cents extra income from work would not even be noticed.

Maybe you did get some but just never noticed it because it's just a cent or two usually. I don't know either. It's just a few cents but I feel so glad about it.

Good for you. I hope I will be able to experience that too someday soon. It's nice to know this site exists where all our thoughts get paid. Hope you will get more nice little surprises.

Yes, i get extra points, too. We can get extra points because of the response from the members here..I'm still happy, though i only got few cents here, but i have lots of fun in posting and because i'm also learning to some of the discussions.

That's true Cherrimae, I think most if not all are having fun just posting and the knowledge we get from eachother cannot be bought with money. However, we do get nice little suprises and that's making it even more fun, isn't it?

Dear friend , I won't say congratulation to you as these is a myth that mylot provide any bonuses. The money which you notice coming to your account as extra is not an extra amount. These is your earned sum. They deduct money from our account for various reasons . discussions which we responded were one liner or responses we made were short or anything which doesn't fit in their guidelines. They may have cut these cents from your account for any of these reasons and didn't find that it was right to deduct so they generally repay it. Very simple.
@Jemina (5783)

You mean sometimes they give less and realized they could have given more? You could be right. It makes sense actually. Thanks for your comment.

That's normal jemina, as I also get an increase by cent(s) ever now and then!;) The reason for that is, mylot admin are performing some deletions of discussions and that those posts that got deleted are distributed to most deserving mylot members. There's also decrease happenings in our earnings sometimes, as we may never know if some of the previous posts we responded to got deleted also. And sometimes, the photos we upload gets added up from time to time. There are delays too, as I recently received my late earnings from uploading some photos since yesterday. I got .17 cents from uploading it and putting them on the interests section, I think I uploaded about 10 or more photos then. There are more easy ways to earn here on mylot, we just have to learn how to look for it!;)

That's really amazing although it's only a few cents but I feel happy about it. And by the way, congratulations to your 2000 posts. You must be working well here.

I agree that receiving even a little bit of extra money means a lot, at least to me anyways. I too have found at times that my earnings will go up later in the day. It could be because of a best response we receive or a lot of plus ratings on our comments or maybe it is due to Easter coming up. myLot is very kind and generous for paying us for our discussions and any extra we get is even nicer. :-)

You could be right. I just feel that it's right to share my happiness with my myLot friends.

I don't know either, Amar, I guess I have to ask myLot admin for it. But I'm really thankful for those few cents I get now and then before the update.

If it is true, it is amazing. This has happened here first time. Mylot updates our earning mostly after 24 hours. I have never received such bonus. Let us others comments on this issue. What they say. Has anybody here received this type of bonus or you are the first.

Well, Bosing said he also gets it sometimes. I know some people get deducted and that's unfortunate. I'm just glad that I get a few cents before the update.

Yes! This has happened to me onmore then one occassions and one day, when I had a discussion that, compared to my normal discussions, was 'really hopping', it slowly increased, cent by cent, to about I think ten cents. Later on, I had my usual earnings update at the normal time. Why does it do this, does anyone know?
@Jemina (5783)

Good to know you also experience it. Beats me though why it happens. I have to ask mylot admin maybe.

@Jemina (5783)

First let me welcome you to myLot and I am sure you will get all these exciting things and more once you stay here long enough and have made good quality posts. One thing, avoid one liner. At least try to give 4-5 sentences in your responses. It's going to make a difference really.

no, i havent notice that, but if mylot really did that for us thats a good news then.

It's true and I'm not making up this story as others can also testify. Hopefully, you'll get some too in the near future.

hi! i agree, even if it's just a few cents it feels great. i receive a few every now and then too. in mylot, every single cent counts! :) those are not gifts. :) as you will notice in our earnings update, earnings are only estimates until final pay-out. sometimes we get increases, sometimes we get decreases (especially during clean-up where mylot deletes some discussions, thus our earnings from those discussions are deleted too). so goodluck! enjoy mylot! :)
@Jemina (5783)
7 Apr 07
That's right, every single cent counts and they add up to make one dollar. Thanks for your encouragement.

I got a 2 cent bonus today also before the earnings updated. It does that sometimes. I usually notice it when Mylot is getting ready to make some payouts. I think they go through and check the best responses we received or something like that and they give us a bonus for each one. That is what I think. I think we earn these little bonuses somehow here and every month Mylot distibutes a little extra to their members. Is this the first time you ever got this bonus? I have received it several times since joining back in January. They have also deducted my earnings one time before.
@Jemina (5783)
7 Apr 07
Oh, I see. That makes sense. That's right. When they are preparing for the payouts some get deduction while others get bonus. Actually, this is not the first time. I waited for it to happen at least a couple of times before I announce it so it would be more valid, you know? Good you get bonuses every now and then. You must be a good poster then.
