Seriously, to everyone who thinks it's ungrateful: If someone announces a bonus, it's not unreasonable to expect it to be representative of the effort you put into something. OP didn't demand it, they announced it and then basically spit in OP's face with a 5$ store gift card. If I told you I made you a birthday cake but it's just a single burnt brownie from three days ago, I'm pretty sure you imagined something different, and it's not ungrateful if you don't actually rejoice. In some cases receiving nothing is better than receiving something that makes you feel like you're worth pretty much nothing.

Atleast you got something. Some people go years and get nothing

I like their Vanilla. Good and smooth.

Don't go around thinking you deserve bonuses. They are extras, not mandatory. I'd probably refuse to give you any bonuses for that attitude.

Next time just hand it back and say no thanks I'm worth more than that,ether give me a bonus worth the effort I put into this job and not insult me or don't bother giving me a bonus at all.

Tell them you are lactose intolerant.

You would have gotten a lot more if you knew to put the dollar sign before the number. A $5 gift card is what someone who requires outside proofreading for the documents they produce.

Man that's cold...
