Make customers feel loved by giving them little presents

The magic of 'FREE' is very powerful

What can be more attractive for a customer than getting a free product with purchase? Nothing! Studies show that free presents are a lot more effective than even big discounts, in other words a free five-dollar product attracts more customers than ten-dollar discount.

Organize and manage promotional campaigns

You can start with basic ones and then create most sophisticated specials. 'Buy 1, get 1 free', also known as BOGOF, is a type of special recognized by all vendors and loved by all customers. Are you using it at your store?

Upgrade your promotional toolbox

Promotions must be updated from time to time, because customers get used to them. For example, you can start with specials like 'Get a free photo frame when purchasing 2 photo albums and a pack of photo paper' and then invent something new.

Clear stock

Very often store owners have products that are either oversupplied or not popular. How make customers click on Add product to cart button? Why wait till these items get outdated or spoilt? Make them work for your business with Magento free product extension!

Observe the solution in action

magento free gift extension

Automatically add free promo items to cart

When customers meet conditions of such promotions, our Magento gift extension will automatically add free items to cart. Zero price will be displayed for the items. Magento auto add to cart tool also enables you specify a text label for the free items, so that customers have a clear indication that they are receiving a gift.

new!Offer customers a configurable product as a free gift

Now the module is supporting configurable products as free gifts. This means customers will be able to select product attributes or needed custom options. Click Free Gift button in the cart and you'll see user friendly and responsive pop-up window with available options. The extension also supports bundle products.

new!Create classic 'Buy 1, get 1 Free' promotion

In addition to promotions like 'Get a free pen for every 10 purchased' you can have specials like 'Buy 2 shorts and 2 t-shirts, get slippers for free', 'Order a camera, SD card and a tripod, get a camera case for free', etc.

magento free gift extension

Unlimited number of rules per shopping cart

If you run several promotions with free items at your store, customers will be able to use any number of these promotions in one order. For example, if you have two discount rules like 'Buy 5 shirts, get 2 ties free' and 'Buy a phone, get a free wristlet', due to the Magento auto add to cart tool customers will be able to take advantage of both promotions in one order. The number of rules, that can be applied simultaneously, is unlimited.

new!Virtual products support

Now all online merchants selling virtual products have a great chance to create tempting promotions with the Auto Add Promo Items extension. The module fully supports virtual products enabling you offer them as free gifts.

Ability to create not product-based promotions

The promotions do not have to be product-based. You can have offers based on subtotal, product quantity, other attributes. For example 'Free installation for orders over $300', 'Free bag for orders of 4 or more products'.

Expand promotion functionality

With this auto add to cart extension you get three new discount rules, which let you provide free items either on per shopping cart or on per product/product group level. Also you can specify SKUs of the items which are provided as gifts to customers.

new!Choose whether to use free or paid shipping for promo items

You can configure which shipping to use for promo items - free or paid. This is crucial when delivering heavy-weight or dimensional products.

new!Specify whether to add to cart multiple promo items or only one product

In case you use these actions:

  • Auto add promo products for the whole cart;
  • Auto add promo items with products;

you can choose whether to automatically add all specified free items to cart or let customers select only one item.

Developed as a native part of Magento

new!Compatibility with responsive Magento themes

The extension is designed to be fully compatible with responsive Magento themes. It meets the requirements of widescreen, tablet and mobile view.

Get support of all native Magento promotion features

You can use all standard Magento conditions to define the cases, in which the rule should be applied. You can specify the number of free items provided with each rule application, also you can limit the maximum of free items per order, etc.

Fully supports Magento stock functionality

The module will add free products to cart only if they are in stock. Out-of-stock items will be added only when admin allows orders of out-of-stock products.

Works both with and without coupon code

If you would like free items to be added to cart immediately once the rule conditions are met - please leave the coupon field blank. If you would like customers to get free items only after they enter a coupon code - please specify the coupon code for the discount rule.

How customers will know about the free gifts

Clear indication of free items in the cart

With the advanced add product to cart tool you will be able to display a notification right in the cart, when a special takes action (e.g. 'Congratulations! Your order qualifies for a free photo frame!'). You can show a label for the free items right in the cart. Also you will be able to label the free products on order view page in admin panel.

Clearly inform customers about the free presents

magento free gift with purchase

We are often asked by our customers something like 'Being able to automatically add free products to cart is great. How do we let customers know about them?' Well, we've got a solution for this problem :). Product Labels module enables you to add colorful badges to images of products, which make the free item promotions easy to spot. You can use both custom texts and images for the badges.

Another great solution for promoting deals is Promo Banners module, which allows to show banners on shopping cart, category and product pages. This smart solution enables you to show banners in appropriate situations and not irritate customers. E.g. you can tell customers that there's a free case for each smartphone when they are browsing products of 'Phones' category.

Promotions of the ‘Free’ type for configurable products

This is where Promo Banners extension can help you again. Let’s say you offer a free tie for each two shirts and would like to let customers select the tie color, etc., in other words offer a configurable product for free. You can create appropriate shopping cart price rule and then show a banner saying that there’s a free tie for each 2 shirts. It is possible to show the list of available ties right under the banner. In addition, you can set the banner to display when customers have at least one shirt in the cart, to increase banner relevance and conversion rate.

Questions & Answers

Product questions

An error ocurred with Sage Pay: 3021 : The Basket format is invalid
Rate the answer?

If you get this error in Auto Add Promo Items with Sage Pay: 3021:The Basket format is invalid, please open the SagePay module configuration and turn off sending the basket to them.

Remove free items from shopping cart
Rate the answer?

Auto Add Promo Items extension allows to offer more than one free item for each rule. However, all applicable free items will be automatically removed from the cart if overall conditions do not apply anymore.

Customers can remove free items from the cart manually (please enable this via admin configuration) not to pay for shipping or handling.

When I add to cart the product that triggers adding a free promotional product, the error occurs.
Rate the answer?

In case when you add to cart the product that  triggers adding a free promotional item, the following error occures:


SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1452 Cannot add or

update a child row: a foreign key constraint fails

(`zadmin_winetalk`.`sales_flat_quote_item_option`, CONSTRAINT

`FK_5F20E478CA64B6891EA8A9D6C2735739` FOREIGN KEY (`item_id`)

REFERENCES `sales_flat_quote_item` (`item_id`) ON DELETE CASCADE ON U)


there is a conflict with a 3-d party extension that works with shopping carts.


Data Base request:

ALTER TABLE `sales_flat_quote_item_option` DROP FOREIGN KEY `FK_5F20E478CA64B6891EA8A9D6C2735739`


I can’t choose a particular attribute when creating the rule as it’s not displayed in the attributes list.
Rate the answer?

The attribute is disabled for promo rules.

Solution: Enable the attribute for promo rules. To do this please go to: Admin > Catalog > Attributes > Mange Attributes > select attribute > Frontend Properties > set "Use for Promo Rule Conditions" to "Yes".


I’ve created the rule for particular categories, but it doesn’t work with configurable products.
Rate the answer?

You haven’t specified the category for child products of the configurable product. The categories for parent and child products should be the same.

Customer Reviews
Quality product indeedReview by Nikita2014
Overall extension rating
The only suggestion I have for the module so that customer can choose gifts. With this extension you can add free gifts but they are fixed. You can do this with other Amasty modules but it’s a suggestion so it can be available in this module.
Other features are good. The free products have the word free near them in the shopping cart, and there is an explanation of the rule for the customer in the shopping cart.
But the module is good. If you don’t understand how to apply the rule support helps very fast. Good work

Great extension and great customer serviceReview by Irune
Overall extension rating
Not only the extension is great (our customers love it, and it allows us to run better added value promotions) but their customer service is also awesome. We ran into some issues trying to make it work after a site redesign, and Amasty helped us fix it in record time.
We already use other Amasty extensions, and I can't recommend them enough.

Need something newReview by Nick
Overall extension rating
Nice tool for promotions in my Magento store. It seems that it would be better if the extension will have some more features. Or add a feature when the customer can choose one of the available gifts. That's why Amasty should add something new to the extension to make it perfect. (Posted on 10/8/13)

Promo Labels and Auto Add Promo ItemsReview by James
Overall extension rating
It is a good addition to our Product Labels extension. Thanks to this extension our customers get a free gift with some of their purchases. It is very great to surprise customers when they are buying product they need and get a free gift. Also we are thinking about Promo Banners extension. Seems it will complete our promotion campaign.

Thank you,

I want to tell developers big thanks for this solution. I use it for my marketing campaign inside the shop. Now my bestsellers has good tool to be promoted. With a free promo items in a cart customers began buy more products. Especially it is a good way to promote products with some additional accessories.
And of course it is very convenient that extension has an ability to create not product-based promotions.

Great extension - works very simply without any code required - just straight out of the box.

It's really customisable, sensibly priced and cheaper than the competition.

And their support is quick - raised and closed 2 requests with them in a few short hours all in one day.

Highly recommended. (Posted on 10/22/12)
