Pros: It's easy to use and I love all of the options for gift cards available. The tags are fun and I like seeing who is the top receiver of Bonusly.

Cons: Finding users who go by nicknames are hard to find sometimes, I would like an option to "edit" the name you use in the system that way we can easily find people

Pros: Easy to give out Bonusly points. It's a really nice idea.

Cons: Not easy to find out what you've received or given. It's not that it's hard to find, especially once you've found it at least once... but it should be a one-click, very easy to find button/link on the main page.

Overall: Nice way to give and receive thanks and "pats-on-the-back".

Hi BH! Thank you so much for taking the time to review Bonusly. We're so glad to hear that Bonusly is easy to use and helps encourage recognition! I'm happy to share that it's easy to find your received and given history; if you click on your icon in the bottom left corner and select profile, you can see both! If you have any questions or feedback about the feature, we would love to hear from you! You can reach us at success@bonus.ly!

Pros: Bonusly has proven over the months that we've used it to be a wonderful booster of morale to our staff. I think people like knowing when they do something nice for someone else, that it is acknowledged and the other person is grateful and everyone gets to see that they did something nice for that person. I like that you can choose between many different places to use your money and that you can also choose to donate to a charity if you so desire.

Cons: About the only thing I don't like about Bonusly is that there is not an option to cash out without using PayPal. If there were a way for the Administrator to fund a "cash payout," it would be much easier to do so. The administrator could have a separate account with enough funds to cover any cash payouts. Most people will still use the other options, such as Starbucks or REI, but some people would rather just have the money to use as they like.

Pros: This software you call Bonusly is easy to use and provides a real positive feedback loop for people I work next to every day, I like the chart showing who is receiving the most money and bonuses. This can help motivate people to do better. The feed back helps people feel appreciated. SOme people I don't see everyday I don't have the opportunity to thank in person. SO using the internet is a way to take care of them from a distance.

Cons: I find the interface a little clunky sometimes. The drop down menus need an arrow or some other visual que to remind me they are there. I forget what to do if I haven't used it in a while. Also the home page should have a blank space with "who derserves to be appreciated today?" text to click on as a start point to give bonusly money.

Overall: social appreciation has many benefits. The basis of Twitter, facebook and youtube are all the "likes". People want to be liked and this helps them know.

Pros: Ease of use. The simple set of features is intentional, providing easier metrics across the organization.

The word cloud is amazing, and we love to see how it changes over time. We can access it at any time, but it is also presented to us monthly at our All-hands meetings.

Cons: I would like to be able to more easily see the bonus.ly I've received and given with a shortcut on the left-hand menu.

Love the Bonusly as it gives an added dimension to rewarding people for their extra effort

Pros: It is easy to use, enables you to attach gifs to be funny and it gives visibility so everyone can see, this could be improved as it is difficult to see if people are just swapping points

Cons: It can be too quick to run out of points. Some people do not remember and then give out points at the end of the month for silly reasons. Others do not get the concept and do not give points at all, believing that the salary is enough of an incentive to work hard.

Overall: Another level of recognizing colleagues for the extra effort and work that they do

Simple tool that has made a huge difference in the morale of our organization.

Pros: Brings a giggle to me every day. Very quickly can show your appreciation to coworkers you normally don't engage with.

Cons: For those that aren't client facing, sometimes it's difficult to watch the banter back and forth and the bonusly points that fly back and forth, knowing that you had a hand in the activity or the client satisfaction but because you are behind the scenes, it's not recognized.

Overall: comradery

Pros: The behavioral underpinnings of Bonusly work! Thinking about how to give bonuses helps keep me in a thankful frame of mind, and getting them feels great and makes me feel recognized. Love this service, along with the vast majority of my colleagues.

Cons: I would like tighter integration with our Slack bot, so that typing "++" after someone's name in chat gave them 1 Bonusly point.

Overall: People are happier and more productive at work.

Overall: A lot. Alcohol. Fuel Vouchers. Laundry Vouchers. Dinner for 2 at some swanky place. A lot...

Pros: it's an easy to use software, implementation is simple and smooth, easy to integrate with Slack, good stats on engagement - you can see if there are people who constantly recognise same people, if there are "coalisions", if there are people who don't use the system at all.

Cons: the rewards pool is quite limited for countries outside of US or UK, but you can always add yours which would take a bit more of time and hussle but once done its smooth. cashing out is always simple though.

Overall: nice way to start creating peer-to-peer recognition programs

Presented well
Updates of ideas for gifts
Fantastic software that is provided to allow staff to acknowledge team memebers. This allows the Organisation to give incentives/encouragement to receive gift/gifts once earned enough points. This has also allowed staff to have group lunches which also encourages team morale with their points.

Cons: To be honest I find it straight forward.
I have in the past had a few issue's with updating our credit card details. Had updated, but still received email that we owed funds.
I find since you made a few changes the platform has a better flow to follow

Overall: As mentioned before, I believe Bonusly is a software program that allows staff to acknowledge each other and boost morale in the Office.
The Company is shown to care and provide an extra incentive to their staff.

Pros: There are a wide range of rewards that can be earned, including "cash" (transfer balance to Paypal or Amazon account), gift certificates, charitable contributions, and custom company swag. That's fantastic. BUT, what I think this program has done best for us is that it's helped build a culture around saying "thank you" and acknowledging coworkers (360 degrees!) for the ways they make our lives better.

The monthly points expiration, which irked me at first, actually works as a reminder that positive acknowledgement should be part of your planned work, not something you only do rarely.

The ability to pair Giphy or fun images with bonuses keeps the interactions fun, silly, personal, and engaging - exactly the way it should be.

Integration with Slack means that praise is public (within our company), which prompts others to think about what they are also thankful for.

Cons: There's really not much I don't like about it, honestly. It's easy to use and straightforward in its interface.

Pros: I love the slack integration . If not for that I honestly wouldn't use it. Its not that its not a great product but in a fast paced work environment I usually am working with whats in front of me, so I would never think to open BonusLy in a tab. Since its always right there in slack and you can see other people using it I won't ever forget its there.

Cons: I know this may be extreme but the slack integration could go even further. I try to use it on the fly but I am not sending these out everyday so I might forget the syntax. Also my team might have set it up this way, but if the # is not a registered one it rejects it. I would like to be able to see a more detailed message as to why it failed other then an example of what it should be.

Pros: It's a great way to recognize employees who go above and beyond- Employees then get to use the earned bonus' to shop at their favorite retailer- It really encourages employees to help each other, and even if they aren't doing it to gain bonusly, they are developing habits of being helpful in the workplace.

Pros: Gives us an opportunity to not only publicly acknowledge but reward our coworkers for doing good things. Love that you can add a gif or photo and the hashtags are not only fun individually but on a larger scale you can see what employees are demonstrating leadership or customer service and it is an opportunity to recognize that and encourage others to step up their game.

Cons: I use grammerly and it conflicts with the software so I have to disable it. Minor issue, the software recognizes grammerly and will let you know.

Pros: I really like how much team moral can be built around giving bonuses. You can give them for anything, funny or serious, and the GIFS make it even greater.

Cons: Sometimes the features are slow to loud or difficult to find when updates occur. Also when there are duplicate names it can be difficult to figure out who is who for newcomers.

Overall: It is an easy way to add to team moral and add greater value to a typical "thank you".

Pros: How it integrates with Slack, and provides a way for kudos to be broadcast to everyone in our company.

Cons: I wish there was a better way to search for the vendors available to redeem points. Right now, it appears that's only possible through scroll, not through a search field.

Thank you for your review, Aaron! We also use Slack in our office and find it invaluable! I really like your suggestion about the reward vendors; great idea! I'll pass that on to the product development team! I understand that sometimes scrolling can be a bit much. Did you know you can cntrl + F to jump to vendor names you are looking for? Maybe that will help! Thank you for the feedback!

Bonusly is one of our most important culture tools.

Pros: I like that it integrates with Slack for ease of use, though some people find it hard to use the Slack function (for those who get it, it's awesome). I like how you can set hashtags for your core values and use it as a gauge for who best embodies our core values.

Cons: Can't really think of anything I don't like. I suppose it would be nice if we could approve Bonusly cash-ins because sometimes people do them all at once and as a small business this can mean occasional cash-flow challenges. I do like how when people cashed out their points to give to charity that Bonusly put in a heads-up feature so that we could prep for the temporary hike in cash going out of our account.

Overall: Team cohesion tool. Helps us identify top performers as rated by their peers in real time. Also shows us a lot about the people who work for us e.g. leadership skills within teams -- those who elevate and recognize others while thinking strategically. People think the product is fun and they like to cash out their Bonuslys for cards. The fact they could give to charity was very uplifting to the team and they enjoyed pooling their points for maximum impact: that is one of the best features so don't ever lose it. Nothing brings a team together like striving for an outside cause.

I love the fact that I can give my people these type of incentives.

Pros: It is fast and easy. Love the gifs, the interaction with the coworker, I really like this platform.

Cons: I would like to have more options on the amount of point that I sent, example: I have to use + and then the amount when it is more than 200 points

Pros: I love the immediate feedback. Employees love it because it's so much fun to use. Reading all the great things my team is doing keeps me in the loop when I'm not there to see it! It has helped us become more united and create a culture of encouragement and positivity. As a business with two locations and an ever-growing team this tool brings us together.

Cons: I wish the automatic acknowledgments such as birthdays and anniversaries had a lower price point. The cost adds up and we've stuck to managing those special days internally.

Overall: Improved culture. Empowered employees. With Bonus.ly we have a year-round staff reward program that is more powerful and fulfilling to the team than a once a year bonus that is often forgotten the other 364 days of the year.

Pros: The ability to tailor many of the features to our specific needs and the ease with which we are able to move various documents into the system.

Cons: The only thing has been the inability to set an actual hire date different from the start date. Currently the first day of work becomes, by default, the hire date, though the actual hire date is typically a few weeks ahead of the start date.

Pros: That it makes it easy for peer to peer recognition and the rewards are fun. It lets us see which projects the employees are rewarding each other the most for.

Cons: Depending on how the teams work and how often team members work together, people are at their own discretion to recognize others so some people may not get as many just because of the way teams work out. The rewards are also taxable income so we have a redeeming "period" at the end of the year to keep our paperwork simpler.

Overall: Adds to our company culture

It's been a super fun tool in our office we love being able to give funny shout-outs for good work!

Pros: The ease of use. It only takes a few seconds to give someone a little bonus for their work, and it's easy to customize.

Cons: The GIF tool opens such a small window that it's difficult to see what your options are, and sometimes it just closes. Support for GIFs from other platforms is limited.

Overall: I think it helps us connect as a team to be able to recognize each other for great work in a way that's low-key, humorous, and has a little fun cash value.

Overall: A good reward program for employees to reward each other. I did get a free tshirt from them on a story I told about a bonusly reward I gave one time. Rewarding is great to give to employees and also telling them a great job or task that they have done.

Pros: The Bonusly system is extremely easy to use. It requires basically zero training. Our employees love the opportunity to recognize and reward each other.

We started using the system as part of the launch of our core values, intending to only use it 2-3 months. It's been a positive enough experience, though, we can't stop now!

The system forces users to tie the micro bonus to one or more predefined hashtags. We have hashtags for each of our core values. This gives us a daily reinforcement of how we apply our core values to real life situations and recognizes/rewards employees for doing so.

Cons: There are only 3 downsides. 1.) You are introducing a new cost into the business, so you need to make sure it's worth it. For us, it has been. 2.) Some of our users report the mobile app doesn't work well, so they will only use the actual website. 3.) The analytics package is amazing, however you can't really share the analytics (like the word map) easily outside of the admin module.

Honestly, these seem kind of nit-picky. The positives significantly outweigh the negatives.

We were worried that employees might game the system and just give bogus bonuses to one another. We haven't had any problems with that. They give meaningful and motivating bonuses.

Pros: I like the value it offers to our business and the positive cultural change it supports. The ease of use in terms of actually giving the money is great. I appreciate the type-ahead fields to help it get populated correctly.

Cons: It's hard to navigate to accomplish certain tasks. These tasks are usually about analytics, seeing when the last time I gave an amount to someone, or trying to see patterns in the data in general, i.e., not just top reciever in an area but frequency of a certain tag over time.

Overall: Public displays of positive support that can snowball. I think that's the most valuable thing and something we struggle with as an organization.

Cons: It always requires a hashtag to post, and that it the least important thing that needs to be added in my opinion. Sometimes it feels more like a competition than a booster with the "awards" and can make some people feel like they are not helping the team as much.

Overall: It is validating to see that other team members appreciate the efforts that I put into the work that I do. Also it makes me feel great to tell others how fantastic they are doing specially when things get so busy. I am an introvert as well so it makes things a lot nicer to tell someone they are awesome when I am in one of those awkward moments.
