I know that it shouldn't be a difference, but was wondering if it was worth the extra $75 for a 10 rather than a 9 on the high end. Same scope. I'm thinking it won't be, anyone agree?

Depends on the scope.  I tend to think that a small power difference on the low end means more than a small difference on the high end.  Ex I  would rather have a 2.5 to 7 than a 3-9 and would rather have a 3-9 than a 3.5 to 10 but Im willing to give up some on the low end to get a lot more on the high end  I would rather have a 4 to 16 than a 3 to 12.   A lot depends on how you hunt as more power is useful only if you hunt from a fixed position with a solid rest.  Guys who stalk and shoot use 6x or lower most of the time and a 2x or 2.5 on the low end is quite useful.

If it were my money, no, it's not worth it. The 3-9x usually sell for quite a bit less, as they are kind of the sales leader.

The scope is the Conquest. one is a 3-9X50, other is a 3.5-10X50. I don't have any experience with the Conquest line though.

I'd put the extra $75.00 towards the bases and rings. I doubt that either power range will have an advantage or adverse effect on the outcome of any hunting situation.

Thats what I was thinking. The closer I keep the build to $1000 or under, the happier the wife is. The only thing adverse I can see would be a few feet in FOV at longer ranges, but thats what binos are for.
