I'll be getting one without asking for it, too (got an email from Amex saying they sent me a card). I could activate it for the 500 points, but I'm skeptical about the actual value. Of their partners, the only places I'd expect to ever earn Plenti points from are Macy's and Hulu - and it wouldn't be much. If I were to earn any through Hulu, I think I would have to cancel my subscription through Roku and start one through Hulu. When looking at how to redeem points, the site only mentions being able to use them at AT&T, Exxon, Macy’s, Mobil, & Rite Aid. So you can earn points with Hulu (apparently you can earn extra points by watching certain shows and getting other offers, too) but I don't know if you can redeem them with Hulu. That leaves me with Macy's...not exactly enticing.
Either way, I spend very little at any of the Plenti partners and enrolling in the Plenti program is not going to change that. I'll probably go ahead and claim the 500 points, and I'm hoping you can get more info once you're actually enrolled. I'll see I guess.
Another consideration is it says points expire after 2 years. To me that sounds like any points not redeemed after 2 years vanish, and not that you'll lose any points you have after 2 years of inactivity.
