There is very little doubt that PokerStars has the best VIP program in poker (just ask anyone who managed to get to Supernova Elite). If you agree, you will probably be amazed by this new promotion in August; VIP Club Mega Month. You can climb the VIP ranks for just 10% of the normally VPP requirements.
You can fast track your way to Platinum Star VIP for just 750 VPPs in August, rather than the usual 7,500 required. You can also get to Gold Star for 300 instead of 3,000, and Silver Star for 75 points instead of 750.
There are two major benefits to climbing the VIP levels. First, you will earn more Frequent Player Points (FPPs) for the same amount of play. Second, higher level VIPs get access to more items in the VIP Store and can redeem their FPPs for cash bonuses with greater value.
The 750 VPPs needed for Platinum Star, which gets you access to the Platinum Store and a 2.5x multiplier on your FPPs, is equivalent to about 1,500 hands at $1/$2 no limit. Easily achievable, even in one evening.
In addition to the Mega Month promotion there will also be discounts of up to 50% across hundreds of selected VIP Store items in the VIP Store Sale, meaning that players can get even more value from their extra FPPs.
If you sign up to PokerStars through PokerNews, not only can you participate in this promotion, you can also qualify for $22,500 in exclusive WCOOP freerolls, where we are giving away cash and three seats to the $5,200 main event.
All you need to do to play in all three of our WCOOP freerolls is to earn 150 VPPs from August 1 through 21. This would not only get you in all three freerolls, it would get you all the way to Silver Star, half way to Gold Star, and just under a quarter of the way to Platinum Star.
