From the possible dupe: "The bounty award will be subtracted from your reputation when the bounty is started, not when it is awarded." – Bart Jan 31 '13 at 20:52
Please dont downgrade me I shall give you a downvote for that. – Doorknob Jan 31 '13 at 21:57

The reputation points will be deducted immediately from your total when you place the bounty.
