One of the questions we are asked in the forums or via email is: Does PokerStars offer rakeback? Of course, the simple answer is no, but in reality, with the VIP program PokerStars has, it is actually better than any rakeback or rewards program offered at any poker room.
To understand how Pokerstars Rakeback works, you first have to understand the Pokerstars VIP Program and FPP system. So, bear with us, and I'm confident that by the end of this article, you will agree that PokerStars not only offers rakeback, but its the best program out there!

PokerStars VIP Program = PokerStars Rakeback
To start with, there are 6 levels of the VIP program. The highest level in the Poker Stars VIP Club is equivalent to over 50% in rakeback. Poker Stars has six different vip levels, with the first four calculated monthly, while the last two (supernova status) reset yearly.
PokerStars VIP Level
To Take Advantage of the great PokerStars Rakeback VIP Program, then be sure and Use the 2012 PokerStars Marketing Code "PSA3301" when you sign up.
As you can see, everyone starts out as a "Bronze Star." The more you play, and the bigger stakes you play for, the quicker you move up the VIP ladder. As you move up the tiers, you earn VIP points which can be used for Cash Back Bonuses, Tournament Tickets, Gifts, and even massive items like Trips to Live Events, Cars, and much more.
As you move up you will earn about 10% extra points per level, which effectively means you will receive a higher percentage of your rake back each time you move up a tier. You will really begin to notice the rakeback rewards increasing once you pass the Silver Star level, and especially when you reach the coveted Supernova status.
