I don't suppose the bonuses will be discounted 50% like the hat and scarf thingy today is.
01-11-2010 , 11:36 AM
Looks cool, but I dont understand...

The site says they will only be announcing each item on the day it is on sale, then they go ahead and list all the items with dates? Am I missing something?

It doesn't tell you which date a particular promotion is going to be offered, other than its the scarf and beanie tomorrow. I assume they will mix them up so that you have to log on every day. It can't be only me who expects to see all the clothing at 50% and the reward bonuses at 15%?
01-11-2010 , 11:43 AM
Did the calcs for the bonuses too.

Amount - $/VPP

$50 0.0167
$285 0.0143
$650 0.0163
$1500 0.0176

Yes, thats right, all but the $285 are a better rate than the $4k bonus.

I wish I was supernova, I would grind my butt off to get that $1500

I don't think were reading the same page. It says all the items, the prices and the dates for me.

Where are you getting the discount for the bonuses?
01-11-2010 , 11:48 AM
Seriously, am I the only one seeing all the items?

I don't see this. I get a list of items with no date + today's sale (actually tomorrow's sale since the promotion starts tomorrow).

Could someone post the complete list?
01-11-2010 , 11:53 AM
Wow, even if I load it up in a different browser I see them all, wtf?!

Tbh don't want to blow the surprise for PS if this is some strange error.

Post it or we assume you're a pathetic loser making **** up for attention.
01-11-2010 , 11:56 AM
uh? **** the surprise, seriously.
I need to know how long I have to get the fpps for the 650$ bonus.
I will now believe you are making this up.
01-11-2010 , 12:01 PM
Why would I do that? I feel like a dick now, thought everyone could see it. Also, I have posted numbers ITT, if I was making it up it would be pretty obvious.
01-11-2010 , 12:04 PM
Post the dates IMO.
Why would it be obvious? It's to pick up % between 15 and 50 that end up being close t0 .016$/VPP. Just post the dates for these bonuses, it doesn't really matter for the rest.
01-11-2010 , 12:07 PM
I just tested this on another computer, works there too.

$1500 15th
$50 25th
$285 26th
$650 31st
01-11-2010 , 12:14 PM
So, it's going to be 85,000 for the $1500 bonus and 40,000 for the $650 one?

In essence one can get $2150 for 125,000 fpps which is $125 more than he would get at the rate the $4,000 - 250,000 fpps bonus provides.

I've requested them to cancel the bonus. Support being as good as their's are, hopefully my request will be granted

he just assumed that the bonuses will be at a 15% discount. so, $1500 for 85k FPPs.

..no offense, to quote from PS promo page : 'Well only be announcing each item on the day its being discounted, and it will only remain at the special price for 24 hours. So make sure you keep checking back to get the best deals on your favourite PokerStars products.' so, cant blame others for doubting you ..

which page is it ? can you please post the link ? or a screenshot
