What happens if my bounty time expires?

I have kept a bounty of 50 to this question, and it has gone unanswered, but the web-site is asking me to offer the bounty as soon as possible.

So is there anyway I could get back my points, and is there any way that I could re-open the bounty with 500 this time to receive special attention.

Thank you.

You can't get back your points from a bounty you've already placed - see this question.

However, after your 50-point bounty expires you are welcome to place a new, 500-point bounty.
