How much does Instagram pay for Reels Bonuses?
So, how much money can you actually make with Instagram Reels bonuses? I was very hesitant to sign up for Instagram Bonuses, when the opportunity rolled out last year, for one very simple reason: you have to give Instagram your social security number (literally within the App!) and I felt like this seemed really unsafe. After all, Instagram in owned by Facebook and I did not want to give Facebook such important information.
However, as time passed by and nobody seemed to have any issues with this, I decided to sign up for Instagram Bonuses in April 2022. I thought I tell you today, how much money I actually made with Instagram Reels.
Here is what’s happening:
In May I could’ve earned a maximum bonus of $8,500 for 84M views (with up to 150 reels). However, in reality I earned: $60 with 12K views.
In June I could’ve earned a maximum bonus of $1,200 for 11M views. In reality I earned: $101 for 37K views.
In July I could’ve earned a maximum bonus of $1,200 for 11M views. In reality I earned $102 for 43K views.
In August I could’ve earned a maximum bonus of $1,200 for 11M views. In reality I earned $102 for 46K views.
In September I can -yet again- earn a maximum bonus of $1,200 for 11M views. And guess what I will probably earn at the end of the deadline? You guessed it: around $100! LOL
However, no matter how hard I try (or how many Reels I upload) after those initial $100, I only get pennies after that- even if I get another 10K or 20K views. Many Instagram users already noticed the exact same thing happening, so they stopped posting Reels when they reach the $100 and wait until the next bonus round starts.
Basically it feels like Instagram is throttling the payout after $100 and if you don’t get millions of views, you will never reach more than in the $100 range.
However, I still enjoy that $100. It is exactly what it is called: a BONUS!
I just thought I keep you in the loop in case you have been wondering, how much you can make with Instagram Reels Bonuses.
