Formspring.me: How to skaters get rewarded for combination jumps? I skimmed the rules, and didn't find any mention of a bonus.

There is no extra reward for doing a combination jump. The values of the two (or sometimes three) jumps are all added together. If the jump combo is done in the second half of the free skate, then a factor of 1.1 is multiplied to the base value of the jumps.

If the jumps are in sequence rather than in combination, then the jumps are factored by .8.
