That's why I was never that impressed with the program when it cost $49 to join. It always sort of struck me as one of those discount dining coupon books full of savings at restaurants you probably wouldn't go to. You pay for the discounts, and then you pay more to take advantage of them by buying things you probably wouldn't otherwise buy.
But the whole value proposition changes when the program becomes free. Suddenly, it's worth checking out, and if there's a discount on something you really need, then you're in luck. And if not, well, you're no worse off than you were before you started.
