What does it actually gain you? As far as I can see, all you can do is buy stuff with your points that you used to be able to anyway but now can't.
And you get points twice as fast, but who wants that as using them pwns you by coming out of your rakeback. Incidentally, does anyone know if there's a new rate for how much rakeback you lose when you use a point? It used to be $0.00135/point.
Edit: Fail. Didn't see the other thread.
