I cashed out mine a bit ago and $$ on the way to Bank

I will say PS has gone above and beyond here getting us are money very quickly and now allowing us to cash out FPPs as something tells me i will not have same kind of dealings getting my $$ from FTP

PS Support still #1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PokerStars has obtained approval from the US Department of Justice that will allow former US players to use their FPPs in the PokerStars VIP Store to purchase VIP Reward Bonuses. These VIP Reward Bonuses, once purchased, result in cash being instantly deposited into the account of the purchaser. These funds will immediately be available for cash out.

VIP Reward Bonuses are, as before, available for purchase based on the VIP level of each player. US players have had their VIP status as of April 15, 2011 restored to their account so that they can purchase the VIP Reward Bonuses appropriate to their prior VIP level. Players with VIP statuses other than BronzeStar will have until at least May 31, 2011 to purchase VIP Reward Bonuses that require their higher VIP level.

US players can also use their FPPs to purchase any VIP Stellar Rewards and/or Milestone Cash Credits that may have been earned in 2010 or 2011 but previously unclaimed. The funds from any purchased VIP Stellar Rewards and Milestone Cash Credits will also be immediately available for cashout.

Any FPPs remaining after a US player purchases bonuses and rewards available to them will be made available again if the US player is again able to play for real money on PokerStars at some point in the future

Keeping the dream alive. I imagine that this might actually help Stars regain some of its American following if the US is ever allowed back. Hopefully...

I will cash out 4500 and let the other 1000+ ride until I come back.
I agree that Pokerstars has made a great effort to get our money and rewards back to us. In doing so they have set a high standard for other sites to match when it comes to customer service . From what I am reading on other forums it looks as if many people are going to be very disappointed with the service they receive at other sites, Carbon poker in particular, if they expect it to be to PS standards.

I for one will be back ASAP. Also I plan to visit my Congressman's office on the 23rd to make my opinions known. Hope a lot of our members will do so also.

Thanks to Pokerstars for being so prompt... I know one day I'll get my pennies from FTP...

Just a note for all.

I was 37% on my way to my next Stellar Award of $50 and they gave me $18.67 . Exactly 37% of $50. Forgot about that, but they didn't.

I just sent them an email because they had nothing for me to "purchase". The whole reason I held off on cashing out was to wait on my VPP's being cashed out, and just do one cash out.

We'll see what they say.
