your answer is here: Frequently Asked Questions

There are a few other rules around bounties:

Questions must be at least 2 days old to be eligible for a bounty.

•Users must have at least 75 reputation to offer a bounty.

•There can only be 1 active bounty per question and per user at any given time.

•Once initiated, the bounty period lasts 7 days.

•After starting a bounty, you must wait 1 day before awarding it.

•If you do not award your bounty within 7 days, the highest voted answer created after the bounty started with at least 2 upvotes will be awarded half the bounty amount.


You need to wait two days before you can add a bounty. Please see this FAQ entry for more information.
