I wonder why? For the most part they don't need to convince anyone of how awesome they are.
Must be some hidden agenda.
To get players like me to come back. I routinely whore bonuses and promos at smaller sites because there's no or small minimums to earn them.
Even if I were to play more (but still casually) on Pokerstars, I'd probably have trouble getting a gold VIP level, so I rarely play there at all. But by giving me an easy way to get started at silver or gold, I might be more inclined to keep my status and give them a large share of my poker business in future months.
