Someone sent me an email that mentioned that pokerstars was giving a one-time 100% match (up to $100) for an Echeck deposit if you use the bonus code "ECHECKS" when you make the deposit. The deal expires Sunday (I'm not sure if it's over by Sunday or if Sunday is the last day).
This is *not* a first-time deposit bonus, as I've made All-Access and they applied the deal to me.

Also, you need to earn 10 FPP's for each point in the bonus. So if you make a $100 deposit you'll need 1,000 FPP's to unlock the $100 bonus.

I'm well rolled for my limit on PokerStars but I made a deposit anyway, because a free $100 is nothing to sneeze about.

I actually goofed the when I made my deposit, and never applied the code. I email PokerStars and this was their reply:
Thank you for your email.

I have applied the bonus to your account. Remember you need to earn 1000 FPP's to redeem this bonus from now on. Once you reach this quota, $100 will be credited to your account.

Please let us know if you require additional assistance.

PokerStars support is AWESOME! I'm really impressed with them. Not putting in the bonus code was my fault, so they had a right to tell me "SOL."

Weird. Maybe they just meant that is wasn't available to you because you've already made an echeck deposit?

Here's the email I got back from support. Evidently there
was a program but according to this it was for March.

Hello Ted,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

It appears that the deposit bonus you are referring to was for first time
eCheck users and only valid for the month of March. As you have already
made an eCheck deposit and it is no longer March you will not be eligible
for the promotion.

If you have received another promotional email please send us a copy of
the email so we can see what you are referring to.

Please email us again soon as we are looking forward to assisting you.


Regards,

Andrew

Ok. That explains things. I got the info second hand, so I didn't have the details.

Now I think it's *really* cool that they gave it to me anyway. Too bad other's can't use it, as it was quite a deal.

PokerStars is awesome (to me!).

lol well I've already gotten a bonus for an echecks deposit only it was just 100% up to $50 when I did it. But with or without a bonus, echecks is by far the best way to deposit. Of course with any luck I won't be depositing anymore, just withdrawing every now and then :).
