Got the confirmation DM 90 minutes later. Points have been uploaded. Has anyone booked a nice holiday with all these points they've received?

Yes! I booked a stay at Niagara Falls, in the closest hotel to the falls with a view of them. Very excited!

Haven't gotten today's points yet, but it's always a waiting game.

I have redeemed a free night at the Protea Edward in Durban, South Africa during a road trip in January. A snip at 7,500 points (all "earned" from tweeting, thanks to this thread).

Points are in for me - not sure when in the last 3 hours they posted because I've been on the road without wifi.

Yep, cashed in my first for 162k BA Avios and 7 days at Phu Quoc Vietnam for next summer. Now at 15k MR points (mainly from this promo), working on the next one. If it continues weekly, just another 5 years until I'm back to 270k

I have earned a little less than 30k marriott points in 2 years from tweeting, plus nearly 6k la quinta points.

I transfer my MR points to SPG. Holding my LQ points til I get to 10k and then swapping them for 2k AA miles.

wow, thanks for the reminder, I completely forgot to tweet to la quinta this month!

with marriott I have collected already enough points for a holiday in Plzen, Czech, and another, week-long one in Porto, Portugal. These are the category 1 or 2 properties, but still really good quality.

Many of the cat 1 & 2 properties actually look pretty good. That is where I'm going to be burning these points.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 2 years already.

But yeah, I’ve earned well over 25,000 points from tweets and previously Facebook checkins.

Where is the La Quinta Tweet thread? I did a search but my skills are weak apparently.
