Default Re: Absolute further squeezing its player base

I'm also out of bonus on absolute for once -- I emailed vip and they said they are not offering a reload right now! I really don't want to play on the site without bonus, but it's my main site and wehre almost all my cash is. I ahve arleady used the post neteller 100% bonus -- anyone have any other ideas? ARe they going to stop giving bonuses so frequently?

I got a phone call with a promo offer from Absolute today.

I guess this is a great offer:

- With your next deposit of $1,000 or more you will receive:

- 5% unrestricted cash (capped at $50) or $10 cash which ever is greater!

- 30% added to your pending bonus account! (capped at $300)

- One entry to our EXCLUSIVE VIP Invitational $5,000 tourney either on the 1st or the 3rd Friday of the month!

- One free seat to our $150k Guaranteed Tournament!

[/ QUOTE ]

Is this available to all players? Is there a code for this?

I had a call from a VIP rep with the same offer, only I only needed to deposit $700. I received my call 2 days after I had pulled all of my money out of my account.

Please keep in mind this is a special promotion that is not available on our website or advertised anywhere else. This offer is valid only for player xxxxx.

P:S.: I'm not a VIP player....haven't played at AP for 6 month.

I've been VIP Elite practically since the VIP program started. I get emails constantly offering me freerolls, deposit bonuses, etc. I actually started receiving MORE of these emails after they announced all the bogus changes they were making. My inbox is filled with emails like these:

"Free money at Absolute!"
"300 more reasons to play at Absolute Poker!"
"Your money is safe at Absolute Poker!"

Most of the emails are filled with boasts about how awesome Absolute Poker is, how great they treat their volume players, how wonderful it is to be a VIP elite, etc. The one email I haven't gotten is the one saying they've changed their new [censored] rakeback and bonus structure back to the way it used to be. I haven't played a hand there in a month and I won't be playing any hands there this month, either.

Absolute has NOTHING to offer without the fat rakeback and bonuses. If you're still playing there at the $3/$6 and $5/$10 levels, you should really reexamine your options.

I thought I would post a response I got from from absolute VIP, it looks like no reloads this week, and they re re-assesing how often then are going to provide them, not good news. I need to look elsewhere, but I am within 1k points of making elite, and the tourny buyins alone are worth it:

Hello XXX, I am sorry but we are not offering any reload bonuses this week and the future of its frequency is something that we are evaluating. Sincerely, George ClintonAbsolutePoker ~ VIP HostVIP@AbsolutePoker.com Absolute Poker VIP Hosting: Setting The Standard For Online VIP Service
