      Hey shefass,

      Last year it was a 25% up to $150 bonus.

      The last date for a deposit was the 10 Jan.

      You had 90 days to clear the bonus.

      I don't know yet, if PokerStars will offer a similar bonus.

      Cheers,
      Hannes

      You think everyone should withdraw at least $1k to make use of the reload bonus?

      Would love to withdraw the 1K as recommended but have only $26.83 on stars.

      Any chance you could loan me the $973.17 ....... just till I get the bonus of course then I'll transfer it back to you :f_biggrin:

      And what if you already have a bonus running? for example, First Deposit bonus.

      you can still get it, but you have to clear the first one. and then you can clear this one. you'll have to put in more volume :P

      But with some bonus's if you withdraw it voids it.
      AFAIK, it should be fine but want confirmation ;)

      Volume shouldn't be a problem ;) hehe

      Oh didn't really think that through, but I don't think it's gonna be a problem.

      The last time they did this reload bonus there was a condition like: you can't activate the reload bonus if you've whitdrew money since the reload bonus was anounced.

      Email support if you're not sure.. they're great :)

      PokerStars working hard on Christmas EVE hehe

      Thank you for contacting PokerStars Support!

      1. I was thinking of withdrawing $1,000, but would this cancel my current bonus? (First deposit bonus)

      To answer your first question, if you were to cash out, this would not
      cancel the bonus itself. As you have already deposited $600, which is the
      maximum amount covered by the First Deposit Bonus, there are no more
      installments that would be affected by a cashout.

      2. I hear you usually have a New Years bonus promotion. If I deposit for this promotion (if it happens) will my first bonusbe taken over my the new one or can I clear the first bonus or even pick which bonus I can clear first and keep both bonus's?

      To answer your second question, if you apply any particular bonus to a
      subsequent deposit, the oldest unexpired bonus will still take precedence as
      far as FPP accrual. That is to say, the releasing of bonuses takes a
      chronological order of oldest to most recent.

      We hope this answers your queries to satisfaction. Should you need anything
      else, please let us know!

      Regards,

      Alberto M.

      Does anyone know the ins-and-outs of this bonus? Is it 20% reload? Also, when is it likely to be announced, as I want to leave it until as late as I can to withdraw :D

      Thanks.

      Can i asume yet that pokerstars have had there most stingey and tight christmas/new year ever? Or do you think theres a chance we'll still get a new years reload bonus? Just i have money in moneybookers ready, but if we're not going to get one i'd rather whack it back in my poker account.
