Did you know Lexis allows you to spend your points* on Amazon.com? Spending your Lexis points on Amazon.com doesn’t double the points’ value (like you would have buying their study-aids from their website), but it does let you buy more products than those listed on their website. For example, you could use Lexis points to buy textbooks, music, or whatever.

*What are Lexis Points?
As you use Lexis and WestLaw for online research, they award you points that you can use to get prizes. The prizes are incentives to get you to use their service. The hope is you will become so efficient using their service for legal research, that once you get into practice and their service is no longer free, you will continue to use their service. It takes a few months to earn enough points for most decent products.
