I have 930 Lexis points. This other 1L blogger has 4,050. But she says she logs on every day. I only log on when I have legal research to do. 650 points buys a $10 certificate to your choice of chain stores, like Barnes and Noble and Pizza Hut. So I've done about $15 of Lexis surfing. I only have 380 Westlaw points. That other 1l blogger has 3,005. I guess I don't do very much legal research.

What a stupid way to make people use your product unnecessarily. I use these things when I have a reason to, not for free gift certificates. Is there any good argument for giving away prizes? I'm going to use Lexis anyway if I need to do legal research. Nonsense.
