Barclays BT/CLI offer, take the bait?

Barclays has sent out another round of BT checks, this time with a twist.

 

This time, to intice you, they offer to increase your CL by whatever amount you make the check out for.

 

It's a way to get a Barclays CLI without a HP, but I think I'll pass.

 

This is a new gimmick, don't think I've seen  this before.

If the BT offer is more than 0% and no fees, then yes, it's a gimmick.

That's interesting ~ is there a max amount mentioned in the T&Cs that you can transfer ?
