You get to spend more time in the Buffyverse! I mean, that's the big plus.
It expands the scope and themes of the parent show. You get to spend more time with a lot of the characters you've grown fond of already- Angel, Cordelia, Wesley. There are major character arcs that are expanded and improved and enhanced by AtS- Faith and Spike respectively.
There's a little bit more Buffy, Oz and Willow. More...Harmony, which is okay. And...and Andrew. See what Andrew gets up to post S7. Um.
Well most of those things are fantastic. Plus you great some great action, cool baddies like W&H, great new characters like Gunn and Fred. 5 whole seasons of just MOAR!!
I'm not gonna say that one show is better than the other, but they do compliment each other nicely.
