Buy X Get Y Free

Hi

Not sure where to ask, as the community response seems to be a lackluster at the best of times.

I need to create a catalog/shopping cart rule that allows the buyer to purchase items from the store where if they purchase 4 items that are the same they got 1 free.

I understand how to setup a buy 1 get 1 free rule, but it only applies to a specific group, product, category or any other attribute.

Can this be done?  I have been wracking my brains out with this and am really desperate to find a solution.

Any help would be appreciated..

Hi I’m running version 1.2.0.1..

I see the option to set up buy 1 get 1 free rule, but it you have to specify certain conditions such as sku, category or other attributes.

All I want to do is allow the customer to purchase any product and if they take 4 of them then they will get 1 extra free.  This has to be applied site wide to all products, but the rule only comes in to force when they order at least of individual product.

Hope that makes more sense… ?  grin

The customer has to add it to their cart. It does not get added automatically even if you set the rule up.

I am also having the same problem. The Buy X get Y free only applies if X and Y are both the same product. I need to allow customers to have any 2 products for free.

Has anyone figured out a way to do this? My problem is I’m using custom options so that customers can select their size (on a t-shirt for example) but it sees each line on the cart as it’s own entity, so ... if they don’t have 288 of the same size entered, it won’t apply.

Surely this can’t be that difficult to do, even if it was just a case of changing the price of the cheapest x number of items to zero when y number of items are purchased in total.

I would be willing to put a bit of cash to an open source fix for this.

I’m trying to implement something similar to this, I want to sell subscriptions in my store, and when you buy the subscription I want to give you N amount of products from my store, but so that you can select the items you want.

Anyone have a solution to this?

TIA

Ivan

I am also having the same problem. The Buy X get Y free only applies if X and Y are both the same product. I need to allow customers to have any 2 products for free.

We have an extension which will allow Buy X get Y free where X can be any set of products defined in the promotion rule (in a category, matching a brand etc etc), and Y is the cheapest of these products.

You can do these and many more;
• BOGOF
• Buy X get the cheapest Free
• Buy X get the cheapest half price (or any set discount percentage)

The extension is called Buy X Get the Cheapest FREE
