Magento Buy X Get Y Free - blog.gaiterjones.com
Do not use this module if you already have extended the cart controller class with another module. e.g. if you are using a third party cart module, or an ajax cart add/remove product enhancer.
A common requirement for an eCommerce store is the Buy X Get Y free sales promotion, where a bonus product Y is offered if the customer buys a quantity of product X or the Spend X Get Y Free scenario where a bonus product Y is offered when the customer spends X amount on a single order.
This Magento module code provides Buy X Get Y, Spend X get Y, use Coupon X get Y and buy from Category X get Y functionality for Magento eCommerce stores.
@version 0.74 @since 08 2015 @author gaiterjones @documentation blog.gaiterjones.com @twitter twitter.com/gaiterjones
Extract the module and copy the files to the /app folder of your magento installation.
Refresh your cache, log out of admin and back in again.
Configure the module under
see below for examples. There are four sections to configure, one for each type of BUYXGETYFREE promotion, BUY X, SPEND X, CATEGORY X and COUPON X.
Buy product X get, product Y free, discounted.
Spend amount X, get product Y free, discounted.
Use coupon X get product Y free, discounted.
Buy products that belong to a specific category X, get product Y free, discounted.
You must create a new simple product to represent your free gift product (product Y), or duplicate an existing product. Product Y must have a unique ID across all configs, buy, spend and coupon. It must be saleable, should be hidden from your catalog search and have a zero price.
If you want to provide the same product Y free or discounted for various product X's you must duplicate product Y for each offer so that each product Y has a unique ID number.
If you want to give a bonus product for multiple product X's either use an existing category that the X products are members of, or create a dummy category, i.e. BuyXGetYFree that is not enabled/visible. Then add the X products to this category. Specify the ID number of the offer category in the module configuration.
The module works best for a free gift product that is a simple product without options. If you want to make your free gift product Y a configurable product i.e. a product with colours RED/BLACK/WHITE, then consider creating a simple product to represent the free gift i.e. "FREE RED/BLACK/WHITE GIFT - select colour at checkout" and then include a comments section at checkout to allow customer to specify the colour/size etc there.
To configure the module for use with a coupon, first configure the coupon under Admin->Promotions. Configure the name of the coupon but do not apply any discount info, conditions or actions, i.e. in effect the coupon does nothing. Under the Coupon X configuration section of the module, define product Y, the free or discounted product and the coupon code of the configured coupon. You can also configure a minimum cart total required for this coupon. Test the module by applying the coupon to the cart, product Y should then be added.
Consider modifying your theme so that products that have a zero price have the quantity selection box disabled or removed in the cart or during the checkout process.

To configure a simple Buy X Get Y Free
- Create a new simple product or duplicate an existing simple product in your store, this will become product Y - the free of bonus product. Make sure the new product is enabled, price is set to 0 and product is saleable i.e. if you manage stock for the product stock quantity is greater than 0.
e.g. I created a new product FREE MOUSE MAT, and it has ID number 100
- Take a note of the ID number of Product X - the product customers must buy to qualify for the free gift etc. (You will find product ID numbers on the left hand side of the product management window in Magento Admin.)
e.g. my product X is a Computer Mouse and it has ID number 50.
Goto Admin, Configuration, My modules
Enter the product ID number of Product X, this is the product customers must buy to qualify for a bonus, in my example the Computer Mouse - ID number 50
Enter the product ID of Product Y, the free gift simple product you created - ID number 100.
Enter the amount of product X the customer must buy to qualify for product Y, lets say Buy 2 Computer Mice, get a free mouse mat, so we enter 2 here.
Use the same configuration for Spend X Get Y Free except there is no product X and quantity becomes cart total, e.g. spend $50 and get a free mouse mat.
Use the same configurtation for Coupon X Get Y Free, configure the coupon first under promotions. Configure the coupon so that it gives a 0% discount. Specify the coupon name and product Y ID under the Coupon configuration.
