How to Fix Instagram Bonuses Not Showing

Is Instagram Bonuses not showing in your settings?

Instagram Bonuses (specifically the Reels Play bonus program) allow you to earn money on Instagram.

You’ll be notified on the app if you qualify to earn a bonus.

To join the program, you need to meet certain requirements and agree to the program rules.

Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t explicitly state the requirements for the program, so users are unclear if they are eligible for it.

In this guide, you’ll learn why are Instagram bonuses not working or showing (Reels Play bonus) and how to fix it.

Why are Instagram bonuses not working?

Instagram bonuses not working

Instagram bonuses are not working because they are not available in your country yet or you didn’t switch to a professional account.

The Reels Play bonus program is currently being tested in the US and India.

If you’re living outside of the US and India, you won’t be able to join it.

However, if you’re living in the US or India but you still don’t have access to Instagram bonuses, it means that you haven’t met certain requirements yet.

Unfortunately, Instagram isn’t explicit about the program’s requirements.

However, they did say that it’s an invite-only program and only users who have less than 1 million followers are eligible for it.

If you don’t have access to the Reels Play bonus program even though a lot of people viewed your Reels, it means that you’re not invited to it yet.
