    I have two bonuses that I received emails confirming, however, I can't find them in my stats. Is there a way to look at individual bonuses for prior days? I have a script that tells me today's bonuses, but I'm looking for a $7 bonus from late last night. Is there a way to find this? If I can't find it, is there someone I can contact at Amazon? Thanks!!

    Unfortunately, there's no good way to determine whether or not a bonus has hit your account anymore. They just kinda show up in your total earnings for that day, but they don't get listed anywhere on the dashboard or anything.

    I suppose you could use HIT Database to show all of the HITs that you worked on for that day, get the total amount from those HITs, and compare it to the total earnings for that day that shows up on the dashboard. The difference should be any bonuses that you received (you would also have to account for anything still pending from that day).

    If you got the emails, though, I would assume that you got the bonuses. I don't think I've ever heard of anyone receiving a bonus email, but not the actual bonus.

    Thanks, I've contacted Amazon, because that $7 one just didn't seem to show up anywhere. Do they seem to respond to questions?
