I'm a little bit torn. On the one hand, if bribing people to enable 2FA actually works then that's great because now they've got 2FA, but what kind of precedent does that set? There's a very real possibility of this leading to The Cobra Effect where people will intentionally avoid taking actions in their best interests until they get freebies to incentivize them.
