Is membership in the Alpha Chi honor society worth anything?

Our big-brained daughter received an invitation to join the Alpha Chi honor society.
She's, of course, happy that her hard work (straight A student) is being recognized. Me, on the other hand, being a complete cynic, see an "honor society" that requires a fee ($42 one-time) to be...scammy. Other than vague offerings to compete for scholarship money, I'm not seeing any real advantage to membership.
How would my fellow MeFites advise my daughter? Are you a member of Alpha Chi? If so, has membership ever amounted to more than a purchased bullet-point on your resume?
