I guess i should read the fine print more often. I had no idea they did this when you buy something with points.
I just used something like 6100 to get a book. Then after reading this today checked how much rakeback it would cost me.
This is what I come up with:
Items bought in the FT store (at $0.005 per point from your rake - or $0.00135 from your rakeback 27%)
. So $0.00135 x 6100 = $8.24. I guess nothing in life is free. The Idea I had to save points for an over priced wide screen is pretty much shot now, lol.
When you buy tourney tickets I take it they charge you for that too? What if there is an overlay on a tourney where you purchased the ticket with points? Do they get you twice for that?
Anyway I won't bitch too much about finding things out the hard way. The extra $"s every week are still nice even if they do penalize you for buying things with points and what not I guess.
