Best Western has a Twitter campaign happening May 19 through June 17, 2011 offering daily points and cash prizes. “Wanna Go, Wanna Bring Summer Edition” has $4,000 in prizes. Prizes only awarded Monday through Friday.

Simply follow Best Western on Twitter and then tweet this:

I wanna go to (location), I wanna bring (@twitter username) and I wanna (activity)! #wannagobw @thebestwestern.

Insert a place, a Twitter member and an activity and keep it all under 140 characters or it doesn’t submit your tweet.

Main Rules:

  • Contest only open to U.S. 50 states and D.C. residents.
  • You may enter as many times as you want each day.

Prizes:

  • 5,000 Best Western points or $100 Best Western Travel Card  = one prize daily Monday – Friday.
  • Grand Prize = $2,000 Best Western Travel Card  = two prizes awarded by July 8.
  • Notification of prize win will be by Twitter. Must respond to Best Western within 7 days or forfeit prize.

Here is the primer for readers who don’t yet use Twitter.com.

  1. Sign up for Twitter.
  2. Explore, look up some categories and follow some people.
  3. @loyaltytraveler is how you reply to someone or locate tweets mentioning a specific member on Twitter.
  4. #SanFrancisco is what is called a hashtag. This is how you can search topics where a keyword or name may not be so effective. For instance #tbex is a hashtag for people discussing the Travel Blog Exchange 2011 conference happening in Vancouver June 11-12. (note: earlier version of this post used #tbex11, but it does not seem the date is being used.)
