absolutely nothing. Its a way to measure your e-pee pee.

Actually Microsoft once had a 1 month contest to rack up achievement points for lame prizes like old spice products and even a few Microsoft points but otherwise its just to brag how much time it is spent playing a game trying to unlock that Hawaiian shirt :

Microsoft Points = Xbox money to buy anything on XBL from XBLA games, download content for games, movies, tv shows.

They can be purchased at retailers at a price of $20 for 1600 points.

Achievement points = gamer score -- which are usually obtained by doing various tasks in games from completing the game, getting 1000 kills, winning 10 races in a row, winning a bout without taking damage, collecting every item in the game, et cetera…

The more achievement points you have, the larger your e-ding ding.
