Default Free CardRunners + StoxPoker memberships...

Just earn 7k points (or less for partial memberships) playing on and get a free month of both.

I assumed this was for new FT accounts only or that there was some other catch, but there's not. It doesn't even cost you those points OR come off of your rakeback!

From the confirmation email I received after signing up:

==========
It couldn't be easier to earn free months of training. You will only need to earn Full Tilt points at the following thresholds:

- 2,500 FTP Points for 1 free month of StoxPoker
- 4,500 FTP Points for 1 free month of CardRunners
- 7,000 FTP Points for 1 free month at both training sites


You are eligible to earn free training in increments of 1, 2, or 3 weeks should you not qualify for the full month. For instance, a CardRunners Gold member earning 2,250 FTP points would receive two weeks of free training.

And remember that these points will not be deducted from your account, nor will this have any effect on your rakeback (if any) or MGR. This is truly free poker training at its finest.

Question: can you d/l the CardRunners vids and watch them whenever or can you only watch them streamed on their site?

They must be getting some ridiculous $ from Full Tilt to just give full memberships for free.

I don't have access to the Videos yet... reading through the terms, it looks like my full membership will go into effect within the first couple of days of next month. Then I'll earn my 7k points again and be set for March, etc, etc.

I've never checked out StoxPoker, but why not, right?

It's a really great promo, and I can see how it's win-win for both companies. FT will inevitable end up with some new players, many of whom are tied to VR as their affiliate. Meanwhile, CR memberships will SURGE, and even at a discounted rate from FT, they will do very, very well.

If anyone is gonna do this, buy a one month membership to stox from the FTP store to get started, cheapest way to do it.

Why would I buy a membership when I can get one for free as described in Post #1?

You need to already be a member of either site.
