Which is obviously a massive range between various brokers and end users.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

At the end of the day Maaser is on net gain.

Does one pay Maaser on a check received as compensation for a flight delay?

In general if money is received to purchase a specific item, (for example a newly wed couple receives money for appliances) no Maaser is given

I would say ask a LOR but perhaps it counts as a discount towards the price you paid for the ticket
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

I know it doesn't mater the amount but if its only a smallish amount it wont hurt to give it to charity anyway.

Oh I usually do and always have. But I also never really thought about it.  Just got a check recently and it just occurred to me.
