Lexis - 395 and 3 entries.
Westlaw - 895. 

What about you, and what are you trying to get?

I cleaned up big during my law school days.  I ended up with a nice cordless phone, a cheap fondue set, and over $450 in gift certificates.

I have about 4,800 in Lexis and 7,200 in Westlaw after one semester. At first, I had way more in Lexis but then somehow ended up with a bunch in Westlaw. It think it might have been the trivia game - at one point I got 1505 points for answering a trivia question.

I was thinking of getting the 15k point bicycle from Westlaw, but I can't tell if it is actually decent, or just crap. Probably crap, since if you go by the gift certificate values 15k points equals about $230. I was also thinking about getting a router from the new Amazon thing that Lexis has, and wiring my house this summer.

I started law school last semester and got $50 in Lexis Gift Certificates and a travel rolling luggage kit from Westlaw last semester.  This semester, I have over 1000 Lexis points (getting pretty close to ordering more certificates) and 92 sweepstakes entries.  I have over 2300 Westlaw points, and hoping to get one of those queen air beds (good for traveling).  Free Stuff is so much more Fun! :)

I have 970 Lexis, and 1300 Westlaw.  I just found out about points. I was only into my studies last semester.  I at least log on every day now to get research points, and I've been playing the trivia games and quizzes.  I have 3.5 more years, so I actually am thinking of saving up.  They may put something really good on there eventually, like tuition reimbursement checks, but I'm eyeing those Coach bags (got a bit of a weakness for them).
