I have bronze star status with 1113 FPP.

When I go the section to redeem $10.00 it red at the top it says "you do not have enough points to redeem this" but the price is only like 750 FPP.

Can anyone explain to me how this works?

Thanks in advance

Hey Cmac,

I think that you are talking about VIP Stellar Rewards:

See here

Since you are on 1113 FPP I am not sure how many VPPS you have: You need to have 750 VPP to claim the first reward of 10$ and if you have already claimed that you will need 1500VPP to claim the next 10$ reward.

This page explains the difference between FPP and VPP.

Your FPP is in your cashier, to see your VPP you need to look at your VIP status tab in cashier. This will provide all the info you need.

If you have any further questions just post them here or pm me.

Cheers,

TC

VPP's were reset to zero at the end of the year, I missed a $10 bonus myself by about 95VPP's. Be aware that FPP's are not tied to VPP's in any way, you need to track them separately.

it says 23.5 VPP

I have no idea what this means and further more, no don't understand how this is related to the FPPS I have.

Your VPP's all reset at the start of the new year.

FPP's are frequent player points that can be used to buy many things, ie Buyins for tournament sattelites.

VPPs are basically used to measure the amount of time and money (measured by rake) you spend on PokerStars. You can spend them on the stellar rewards and various pokerstars shop type items. They also factor into the Bronze star / silverstar etc status per month.

This might be the most dumbest and confusing system I've ever seen.

I thought the same when I started but once you will play a bit and see how it works you will get the hang of it pretty soon.

i believe you get more for your money/points if you buy tourney tickets, that's what i do.

But not everyone is playing tournaments and for most tournaments/SnG's it isn't possible to buy tickets for.

And I think it is pretty balanced between cash and tickets.

for 2500 points you could get

- $25 cash
- $37.50 worth of step tickets, for example

to me (i play tourneys) it's a significant difference.

But bare in mind that you have to win multiple step tourneys to get a prize and with the $25 cash your guaranteed of getting a "prize"

So if you feel you will be able to reach something with the step tickets, then go ahead and take them. But for most the 25 cash would be prefered.

thats's why i wrote 'for example'.

if you prefer it that way that's fine, of course but it's still worth pointing out that you get more for your money buying tickets, another EXAMPLE:

storm or big 11 ticket worth $11 for 700 points.
