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.
