Any benefit at all to using a battery tender?

I have a Battery Tender Plus sitting in my garage being unused. I commute daily on my motorcycle, but my Jeep definitely gets run every weekend. Is there any benefit to putting it on a tender if it'll only be sitting Monday through Friday? Only reason I ask is because I already have it so I was curious. Will it extend the life of my battery or my starting system by always having a strong battery?

I don't see how it could hurt it, if its not much trouble to plug it in and hook up, why not use it?

The battery tender is a trickle charger. It will simply keep the battery fresh and ready for use.

I have used them in the past for my motorcycles, and my boat during storage. No complaints here.
