I think it’s potentially pretty smart if the popup contains a discount.
Here’s my reasoning. A key to maximizing sales revenue is targeting customers based on their price discrimination. Some customers are not price sensitive and will just sign up. Others are price sensitive and may look around (say at the popup that got blocked) and find the discount.
