This question already has an answer here:

I have a question, and I haven't start a bounty for this question. After I got my answer I'd like to give a user a special bounty, because I consider his answer very helpful and it saved me a lot of time. I've already accepted the answer. Is there a way how can I give him some bounty?

Thank you

Yes, you can.

Just click "start a bounty", choose bounty amount and select the Reward existing answer reason. Refer to the How does the bounty system work? for the details.

I expected something like that, but ... I guess it will appear 2 days after asking? Am I right? – Ján Vorčák Dec 14 '11 at 13:25
@JanVorcak Sure. Here is the quotation from the topic I mentioned: A bounty can be started on a question two days after the question was asked. – Idolon Dec 14 '11 at 13:27
