Can only speak for ourselves.  Our prices would not go down, I feel that
they are already pretty resonable (brushing the line of profitability too).
Sending a bonus doesn't create much more expense other than in shipping and
(very) small amounts of cultural costs.
The fun I personally have sending out bonus plants more than offsets any
monetary costs. :-)
