It's a gimmick, in my opinion. While some beneficial bacteria could exist in the bag that could help get a cycle going instantly with some fish, it's not a fool-proof method.

You'll likely still need to cycle your tank appropriately before adding livestock. 2-3 days won't cut it when it comes to growing biofilm and allowing a proper bacterial colony to build.
