Club Carlson is giving 1,000 points to the first 15,000 people who follow them on Twitter and register for their May 13 Twitter party #hashtaghotel.
Go to this link: http://blog.clubcarlson.com/club-carlson-hashtaghotel/
If the server is not overloaded, as it has been most of today, after you follow @ClubCarlson and approve access to your Twitter account, there will be a registration screen to enter your email address and Club Carlson membership number.
Note: I tried to access the site a dozen times over three hours before the registration page appeared.
Successful promotion registration will be indicated by this message.
You must be a Club CarlsonSM member to receive 1,000 bonus Gold Points® (the “Bonus Award”) as part of the #HashtagHotel promotion (“Promotion”). To earn your Bonus Award, complete the registration form on the Club Carlson blog (http://blog.clubcarlson.com/) and “follow” the Club Carlson Twitter handle (www.twitter.com/clubcarlson). Promotion limited to one Bonus Award per member. We will award a maximum of 15,000 Bonus Awards. Your Twitter account must be active for a minimum of 30 days to be eligible for the Bonus Award. We will credit your account with the Bonus Award within 4-6 weeks of providing your member information.
The Promotion is subject to all Club Carlson terms and conditions. Club Carlson reserves the right to add, modify, or discontinue the Promotion without notice.

This is a nice way to extend the longevity of your Club Carlson points if you have not had activity since earning the big promotion bonuses of 2011 and 2012.
