The Major League Baseball season is well underway, and FanDuel is giving players an extra reason to try out the contests this week. From April 8th to April 10th, FanDuel players will receive FanDuel Points when they enter their first MLB contest at FanDuel.
The FanDuel Points will be equal to the value of the contest entry, effectively reimbursing you much, if not all, of the cost for entering the contest.

How to Participate
To be eligible for the free FanDuel Points, you must be an existing player of FanDuel and not have participated in a daily fantasy baseball contest at FanDuel yet this season (new players can take advantage of a $200 sign-up bonus).
If you meet these qualifications, you will be eligible to participate, assuming you also received a promotional email from FanDuel. If you are unsure whether you are eligible, contact FanDuel support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you enter the following contests on or between April 8th and April 10th, you will receive your FanDuel Points reward:
Enter any $1 MLB contest, Receive 2,000 FDPs with an approximate value of $0.83 – 83% reimbursement
Enter any $2 MLB contest, Receive 4,450 FDPs with an approximate value of $1.85 – 93% reimbursement
Enter any $5 MLB contest, Receive 12,000 FDPs with an approximate value of $5.00 — 100% reimbursement
FanDuel players will only receive FanDuel Points for one entering of the contests. If you did not receive the promotional email from FanDuel you will not be able to take part in the $2 or $5 offer. The terms and conditions seem to imply that those who do not receive the promotional email will still receive FanDuel Points by entering a $1 MLB contest.
About FanDuel Points
FanDuel Points are the primary reward system on FanDuel. Players usually accumulate FDPs at a rate of 10 FDP for each $1 of buy-in to a contest. Once enough FanDuel Points have been accumulated, you can use the points to enter virtually any real money contest available on DraftKings.
FanDuel Points carry a value of $0.000416 per FDP. This rate is based on the exchange rate of using FanDuel Points to enter any real money contests. Players receive approximately 4.16% of their entry fee reimbursed when earning and exchanging FanDuel Points.
The MLB promotion being offered by FanDuel for a limited time reimburses FanDuel players at a rate of 83%-100%.
