Barclays Desperate for Cash?

I found this e-mail yesterday. It's a first, something I've never seen in my lifetime. A bank is offering to new French customers 10% annual interest on a checking account for three months, and 3% thereafter, with a few conditions (spend 750 euros minimum a month with their credit card, stuff like that).

Here's the actual ad (click on it for a larger version):
