I thought the Contestant's Row perfect bid bonus had changed to $500 earlier than it did. That change also occurred, per Steve's timeline, in November of '98.
It should be noted that the Kennedy version upped it to $500 pretty early on.

It should be noted that the Kennedy version lasted all of ten months and it's pretty clear I'm talking about the daytime show.

Does anybody remember when Jeopardy! changed the rule so that the departing and returning flights for their consolation prize trips could only be from Los Angeles?

Wow, that seems like a recipe for players to decline their prizes. (Which might be exactly what they had in mind.)
