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.

magento auto add item to cart

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 Why wait till these items get outdated or spoilt?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

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.

magento free gift extension

Offer configurable products as free gifts

The module supports 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.

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.

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.

magento free gift extension

Automatically add gifts for every $X amount spent

With a new action type it's possible to automatically add free promo products to cart each time customers spend a particular sum of money. For instance, you can set a rule so that a customer will get a free T-shirt for each $500 spent. It means that if the cart subtotal equals to $1000 – the customer will get 2 T-shirts (one for each $500 spent).

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.

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:

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.

Brilliant quality
You definitely rock guys! I do love your extensions! This one works exactly the way it promises, nothing more and nothing less
Wise investment in good promotions
Simple, clear, useful... What else can I add? Been using it for 3 months already, and it's never let us down. I was hesitating while purchasing it, but now I'm glad I've picked up this very addon.

The manual is neat and brief, so everyone can set up the addon without any issues.
wish to have more detailed guides
I’m the owner of big online store with a great number of configurable products. I was charmed with the plugin functionality and ability of choosing custom options for configurable auto added products.

But when I bought the plugin I was unhappily surprised with the difficulty of its configuration and non-intuitive settings.

I appealed to customer care department and they set all the rules I needed. Now everything works right. I studied the rules and now I understand the logic. Maybe Amasty could provide more detailed user guides as in reality everything is not very complicated and I could have set the rules myself.
I'm satisfied
Actually I've found no difference between this application and the Free Gift (also by Amasty). So I've just picked up this one. Despite rather limited functionality for this price the app spotlessly does what it's promised in the description and the tech support is very helpful.
Very good extension
When I purchase a quality product - it usually lifts my mood. Unfortunately, in magento market quality products are rather an exception... That's why I highly appreciate companies providing perfectly polished code. Amasty is the case. Auto add works exactly the way I expected. The support is top-notch!
Awesome promo tool
The developer told us the truth pointing out that free promotions are much more effective than any other promo types. Indeed, according to our analytics, free gifts are highly appreciated by customers and lead to conversion increase. Maybe this is just because of our specific products - I don't know... but the app perfectly works for us!
reliable company
Runs perfectly for my Magento 1.9.1 - very, very sustainable workflow. Clear documentation and helpful support make this plugin stand out of the crowd. I'd tried 4 similar extensions before installing this one from amasty, so I do know what I'm talking about.
Top quality
This is my first magento module from amasty. It meets all my needs and works the way I expected. The support guys are very polite and attentive, ready to help at any time (even a picky client like me found nothing to complain about).
my love
Love this extension! Every once in a while we empty our clothing stock by offering customers free items of their choice. Allowing customers to choose size and color is very important. This module is just what we needed.
Wide variety of gifting options is impressive.
Keep up the good work, guys! You are amazing
Business booster
It is great, what’s more to say. It’s very easy to use and intelligent. You spend no more than a half an hour to install it and then maybe another hour to configure options. And yeah, that’s it. This little cool thing brings your promo campaigns to the new quality level.
Keep it up, Amasty!
Needs some improvements
Not spotlessly perfect, but accurate and stable working. The module didn't run right out of the box, but after some code tweaking it greatly supplements store functionality and runs flawlessly without any issues.
We are selling cosmetics so promotional actions are crucial for us. We try to always offer some additional benefits to our clients. Adding free samples to cart was just a struggle for us. We almost ended up. Managing it manually was just huge work. This addon painlessly solved all our problems. To get everything together and running we contacted support team. I bet they are all geeks and never stopped until a problem is solved.
My review: great extension, amazing support!
Highly recommend
I'd been looking for something like this for quite a while. This extension gives the widest functionality for promotions, works perfectly both with & without coupon codes. This particular feature is very important for our store! Pop-up window is very useful and looks just great.
The plugin covers all my needs: it’s simple, flexible, and it's reliable.

Thanks, Amasty
Smart extension and the best support
This extension meets all my needs, and I enjoy it. Professional and kind-hearted support managers helped me to go through all difficulties during the installation and setup. Hopefully our promotional activities would be with such a great tool and beautiful visualization on the frontend.
We finally found it!

Good functionality
I bought the module two months ago and it already started to bear fruit to my store. I’m especially satisfied with visual effects. I love the nice-looking lightbox and the responsive design that ideally matches my website.
At first I had some difficulties with promo rules setup but Amasty support manager kindly explained me what to do to get the desired results.
I feel that I’ve done the right choice.
Just perfect
This extension works great, and does exactly what I wanted for my shop. The support team is fantastic, so if you ever experience a problem or have difficulties in configuring the extension, they will be there for you. The answers are very fast( the best I ever experienced)
Keep up the good work!
Great extension!
Very easy to use and compatible with all other extensions! Love functionality and how much it simplify my work!
Great product, great service!
This extension is great, and they provided great support when I needed to tweak a couple things.
Magento Connect
Quality product indeed
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

Magento Connect
Had a problem but support was amazing
The extension worked perfect but then i found it conflicted with one of my other extensions, after about a day the support (who were brilliant throughout the day) decied they couldnt fix ti and offered a refund or to just replace it with another product, so i did and the new product works perfectly. Support was brilliant and i have never had any trouble with this company.
Cool extension
Does exactly what I need and more, Amasty support is very helpful!
Thumbs up!
This is another excellent extension made by Amasty. I was looking for an extension for promo and fortunately found this one that met my needs. Many thanks for good job!
Great support !!
My installation went not as expected but Amasty comes to the rescue great support! The issue was solved whit in one hour.
Using Amasty software for several years now, this guys will not let you down. Highly recommended.
centervanliemp, Magento Connect
Really satisfied with this module. I had a little problem, probably due to a third party extensions and Amasty support team solved it in less than 24hours. That's what I called being professional. I'll be surely buying more extensions from them.
webahead, Magento Connect
Our customers are totally happy
We've been looking for a good tool allowing automatically add promo items to cart, and this little fellow does its best! Having a developer in our team we didn't even have to bother Amasty's support. Actually, this is one of the best third party extensions we've purchased :)
Must have module!
Wow, I'm pleasantly surprised with the module. Since I've installed it, there haven't been any problems with it at all. The support team explained me in details the way to handle it, so now I'm just enjoying with the process:)
Great extension and great customer service
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 new
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.
Thank you Amasty
Auto Add Promo Items has became our final tool. As you know each customer is glad to detect a free gift in his cart during the purchasing process. There is no matter will it be an expensive one or the cheapest product which you have in your web store. Using the extension from day to day our customer write only good reviews and their thanks to us. It seems that it is the best way to please customers.
To conclude it all I highly recommend the extension, I'm sure that it will find its applicationю And don't forget surprise customer, each of us love free gifts.

Promo Labels and Auto Add Promo Items
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,
The magic of the free is powerful
As the description says: "The magic of the free is powerful". And i tested in at my web store. Now customers have a small free gift with their purchase. Now a secret that people love free gifts and they buy more and more exactly in my shop, because they know, that they will have a free product for free.

Very great extension
Very great extension i recommend, i bought many extensions from amasty company, easy installation and fast response and experienced fix if there is Conflict with your website, many thanks!
All features to promote free items
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.

Interesting way of promotion
Works just like it is explained. Smooth and easy install, just like a good plug-in should. Support was quick to respond to my questions before and after the sale. I will be buying more from this company.

Magento Connect
Great for Free Product Promotions
Magento has no auto add free product prmotions feature. Customers love free products, so i purchased this module. It adds free product if rule is ok. Simply brilliant.
Simple and usable
Works perfectly, tried a couple of other extensions that claim the same thing but this one just works exactly as you need it too, great support as well.

Great extension
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.
Fantastic. Bought and installed within minutes. Immediately downloadable, easy to configure.
If you're in the UK they add VAT on after though, so bear that in mind if it affects you.
