Default Calculation of rakeback for Pokerstars new VIP program

Has anyone done the calculations per level of what rakeback would work out to be?

It depends what stakes you are playing. I think 5/10 6max and 2/4nl 6max would be the maximum in rakeback (ie; most pots rakes over $1, but less maxed to $3).

Based on a quick look through the store, it looks like you can get around $1 per 55-65 FPP. The Dell gift certificate is $1/62.5 FPP, for instance. Use that number coupled with the FPP earning rate for whatever VIP level and stakes you are at to calculate rakeback. My numbers for $5/10 show that I am earning around 79.4 FPP/100 hands. If you are Platinum, that becomes about 198.5 FPP/100. That works out to around $3.176/100 hands if you are buying Dell gift certificates. You'll do slightly better on some purchases and slightly worse on others, but that should give you a starting point.

At 15/30 I found it to be about 20% @ supernova status.

I should add that at Platinum, it's around 14.7% at 5/10. At Supernova, it's around 20.6%. My data is from about 8100 hands, so it should be reasonably close.
