Bonus or increment?

If you are given a choice to choose between getting your yearly bonus or yearly increment, what will you choose? And why?

You can only choose one.

Ps. Im doing a survey here.

Bonuses are just (empty) promises. It is not, I repeat, not a signed agreement.

Increment. Definitely. I'm all for long term.

I've written something on this topic before, http://twobirthmarks.blogspot.com/2011/01/this-is-bonus.html

Birthmark & Angeline:But now you are given a choice woh...If you are the lower salary income group, then it's better to get a bonus, indefinately if the yearly increament is less than RM100.

Exactly lor. Isn't what this post is all about? We are given a choice between these two.

When I first started as a junior designer years back with a little over 1k of salary, I still opt for increments. I know I will be getting a better prospects jobs in years to come. If a company can't give me what I want, I move on.
