They're actually offering $50 worth of points for signing up. I have no use for it after that, but $50 is a good enough bonus for spending $250... which equates to paying my cable and phone bill for the month. They gave me a $2000 credit line, but Amex has increased my BCE limit substantially from when I first got it. If I close it I could try to do a credit line transfer.
Additionally I have found that if you use a Mobil gift card then you get $0.06 off per gallon, even if you're only spending points. (Meaning you don't use the credit card)
I also have all of my family members' AT&T bills linked so I get something like $10 in gas every month by doing nothing.
Aside from that I don't use any of their partners and have to agree their points are worth hardly any value save for free gas every now and then...

I have both, they require a plenti loyalty card in order to sign up. But there is no indication my account about what card is linked, or if that can be changed. My best guess is that points post to my loyalty card.
