It seems to be. A 30 day patron pass costs 2400 credits, and if you drop $20 on 3250 credits that leaves you with 850 after buying a 30 day pass. If you went with the 30 day subscription for $15 and purchased $5 in credits you'd only have 750 credits.

I honestly don't know if there are any benefits to paying cash for the patron subscription over using a 30 day pass, but logically there ought to be. Of course given that you're guaranteed to be plunking down $20 that way and not $15 now and maybe $5 later they don't have a problem geeking to a "free" extra 100 credits even though you're spending the same amount of money.

It's good while you are leveling for the xp boost. If you are concerned about grinding out rep once you hit 60, it could be worthwhile too.

If you plan on dropping a lot of credits the 10% discount isn't a terribly bad thing either. Granted you'd have to spend over 24,000 credits to at least "break even," but getting the last two bag slots would cost about 1720 credits/character I believe, getting 68 storage units in two bags or maxing out available trade skill slots will run 7200/character, and buying end-game gear can be pretty damn expensive as well. It'll cost darn near 90k credits to get the full raid gear package for a character without the 10% discount.

Impractical for most people, but if you plan on doing things like maxing out bag/trade skill/character slots in one fell swoop and splurging on things like larger bags it could be worth it from just that perspective.

I just support the game by buying credits every so often, Patron Benefit's aren't fantastic but they're a nice perk for people who pay to just support the game.
