As a former employee of World Market in my retail days, I would also say you might find better deals elsewhere with non-store credit cards. Heck, when I was there it seemed like they offered at least 10% off coupons, or spend ABC and save XYZ, every couple of weeks. The Explorer program also had generous deals a few years back anyway.
But from the math you gave us, 300 pts=$15 at WM (valued at a point a dollar), that's about 5% cashback essentially, right?
It might be worth it if you truly do spend $100+/ mo there. Although I'm a low-spender myself at this point (and seldom shop there anymore), I would personally find more value with sign-up bonuses on a new credit card.
On a side note, I will say if you look hard enough, you can find most of the gourmet food items at other retailers (even Wal-Mart), for a better price.
