Whether we get paid or not I still enjoy chatting on here.  I really do hope they pay us though.  Everyone needs every penny they can make now a days.

There is rightfully so a lot of discussion about our $3 monthly Forum Bonus.

I am reminded of something that happened at my last workplace regarding end of year bonus. I hope that some FC members might find the time to read what I am about to post.

For 27 years, I worked in a call center. It was dead end, low pay and we were worked very hard. But the low pay was supplemented by a year end bonus that was sort of generous. We never knew how and when it would come. it was always a surprise.

It came from about mid December to mid January. Sometimes we got it in the mail. Other times, it came with a paycheck and other times, we were handed a seperate check.

After years of giving us this bonus, the firm decided to stop the bonus but they did not tell us. They made us figure it out.

Like always, we expected the bonus. We watched. We waited and we waited and we waited. We whispered about it.

We never just out and out asked. And managers never said boo about it.

Finally, around mid January, we stopped whispering about it. We figured out we were not getting a bonus. And we didn't and we never got a bonus again.

I thought that it was such a mean, angry passive-aggressive thing to do to us hourly employees. Management knew that we expected it. They watched us whispering about it and wondering about it but they made us figure it out. They did not just tell us that we were not going to get it.
 :bad:

A couple of years later, I was laid off.  I had worked there 27 years. There was not so much a thank you or a gift card. No party.

What is currently happening at FC re the Forum Bonus reminds me of my former company and the year end bonus.




This almost sounds like the story in Christmas Vacation  - I hope you were able to rebound after 27 years with the company. I don't think the forum bonus measure up to what you had to go through.

I do wish they would let us know if they are not going to pay us the bonus because if so, I would quit taking the time doing the 30 posts each month.

it does sound possible, but the pandemis or some other disaster could also be the cause, so I'll hope for the best and wait, and keep posting since I love posting anyways

Due june,July and August that's 9.00  would be nice but not that much money. If they end it just tell us.  Can still make money doing surveys.  Can only wait and see.

Let's hope something..... a lot of things change on this website for the better and soon!!

Fusioncash expects everyone on here to follow rules.  They should be following their own rules, too.

Communication is key, too. If they would just inform the users what is going on, that would solve so much.

Just got the confirmation email for September Forum bonus application, now June, July August and September are pending.  Says agree to wait 65 days for payment, so we'll see.  June and July have zero days waiting.

I will continue to be optimistic about FC's future.  I can understand that FC may be having financial difficulties during this crazy time and may not be able to pay us the forum bonus as before.  Maybe they are trying to figure out what to do, and that's the holdup on keeping us informed. FC has always appeared trustworthy to me, and concerned about its members.  I think if there is a way to pay us, they will.  I've always been amazed that they offered the bonus in the first place.  I've never seen another site offer such a great incentive to be a contributing member.  Bostonphil, your story is pretty heartbreaking, but sadly, typical of the way many people operate.
