Add Free Product to Cart by aheadWorks

The Magento Free Gift Product extension allows administrators to set up numerous rules and add free products to shopping carts automatically. An item appears in the shopping cart basing on set criteria of the created rule. The module gives you a possibility of defining such promotions as “Buy Canon Power Shot & get Camera Charger for Free”, “Spend $300 & get a 50% discount on HTC Touch Diamond”, or “Buy 5 items and get Black Berry 8100 Pearl with free delivery”.

The magnetic word “Free” spellbinds bargain hunters and attracts more and more customers to your store. Use The Add Free Product To Cart module to present gifts to your clients. Set up rules to populate clients’ shopping cart after rule conditions meet.

With the Add Free Product to Cart Magento extension, you can increase customer experience by little presents. You can give your client a product for free or suggest getting it with a specified discount. The information with the offer appears in a pop-up window or the product is added to the cart without any notice, so your clients will be in a daze after viewing the real ability of getting one more product absolutely for free.

Moreover, the extension allows you kindly suggest customers to buy another product with a discount. The product can be delivered for free as well.

Add Free Product to Cart by aheadWorks 4.5 5 6 6
Very useful extension and excellent support We are using this module to offer our customers free products, when they buy for a certain amount. I want to thank aheadWorks for their excellent support. We had an issue and the developer could find and fix it very fast, although the bug was on another 3rd party module. And the best thing is: Since we are using this extension, our conversion rate has improved ;-) We are using also other extensions from aheadWorks and we can strongly recommend this company. Thank you so much! December 5, 2014
Good addon This is a good addon if you want to add free items to a customer's cart. It works quite well and with minor feature additions it can become a great tool for attracting sales. As always, AheadWorks' support was exceptional. October 27, 2014
Great Extension - Needs a few tweaks Great extension and does exactly what it says. A few improvements could be made however. It needs the ability to add a gift card as a free item. Many retailers run promotions of if you buy X you get a $20.00 gift card for free. Also need the ability to add more than just one free product. Sometimes we want to do a package deal where if you buy the main item then you can get 2 of the accessories for free. Overall, this a great extension and will be even better once they release the above functionality. August 18, 2014
Good extension, and good support Extension does exacly what is should do. We had a problem with the instalation, but the support was quick and friendly. April 1, 2014
Good extension Nice and simple extension. Easy to use and install. Customer support always ready to help and advise what is really important. Excellent. September 16, 2013
Works as advertised Although the functionality is quite basic, it does what it's supposed to. August 30, 2013

Unfortunately the out of the box version of the module doesn't allow setting the required limitation. The extension adds free product to cart each time product in cart meet specified conditions.

Thank you.

Can the free gift be an item where the shopper gets to choose from options?
