They're similar but not exactly the same. With rakeback you are guaranteed a percentage back regardless of whether you play 20k raked hands/month or 100k raked hands. With VIP programs the more you contribute to gain points the higher return percentage you get when you want to exchange VIP points for money. There are other added bonuses... access to certain freerolls
and what not. In General, for a casual player, rakeback was probably the better option. For more serious grinders that will hit that top echelon, VIP can be just as good if not better.
