So that's $20. Is it worth it?
Aren't MR points worth more than 1 cent?
And are there any other benefits to more holding this card longer?
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

The PRG offers 3x points on flights. 2x gas and restaurants and supermarkets. Other than that, no real benefits if you have other amex cards

there's entire threads dedicated to that topic

You already have had the card for a year.  Don't you have an idea of what MR's are worth?

Same as you do with all unwanted mail.  Get a sharpie.  Write: Return to sender -  Remove from list.  Drop in a mailbox
Do you know that works with these silly capital one mail offers? Anyone have experience with this?

I put it in the mail. I'll report back next month.
After some research I did find this:

Mail Preference Services 
Direct Marketing Association 
P.O. Box 643 
Carmel, New York 10512-0643

Supposedly an address to send your request to stop getting offers...
