How much is the 2008 misprinted five dollar bill worth?

Nothing, theres no misprint. The five dollar bills says series 2006 because they were made in 2006. The just came out in 2008.
Note that in the past series dates were changed even less often so some bills went as long as 30 years with the same date!
Not completely exactly on the improvement...
Bureau of Engraving and Printing tested new design by first printing green seal notes, only issuing 410 million in 64 print runs before production of new design with purple seal started (http://www.uspapermoney.info/serials/f2006_q.html). As such, these notes in a limited run are worth more than $5. The new design issuance with purple seal is not worth more than $5 (as 2 billion have been printed to date).
