The Add Free Product To Cart module extends native Magento functionality with an ability of automatic product adding to the cart. An item appears in the shopping cart based 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 and follow the proverb “Little presents keep a friendship alive”. Set up rules to fill clients’ shopping cart after rule conditions met.

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 agreeably surprised 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.


  • Gift product auto-adding to cart
    The Add Free Product to Cart module allows you to surprise your clients by suggesting them to get an item for free or at discounted price.

    However, if the main products are deleted from the cart, the free product can’t be bought as well.
  • Unlimited number of rules to gladden customers by a sudden gift
    • Limit the time period when rule is active
    • Show a pop up window for Item that is added to cart
    • Ability to display pop-up window with a suggestion of getting an additional item
    • Prioritize pop-up window to make the most desirable one appear after rules conditions met
    • Enable the possibility of closing the same pop-up window for a customer after conditions meet
    • Set conditions as in the shopping cart price rules
    • Create recurring rules
    • "Stop further rules processing" option
    • Ability to apply specific rules to different stores and customer groups
    • Re-add free product if it was deleted from cart
    • Several rules can be applied per one order
    • Specify rule description
  • Handy price management of product which is auto-added to cart
    You can apply the discount to the item that will be auto-added to the shopping cart. To make the product free for buying just select the "Buy X get Y free" rule type.
  • Free of charge gift delivery
    With the Add Product to Cart extension, you can decide whether the shipping of the product will cost your customer anything or the item will be delivered for free.

Very stable

Review by Luca | Jun 29, 2016

The extension really performs as it's advertised. This is definitely a good tool to use offering your customers free items along with other products in their shopping carts. I can strongly recommend this extension and AheadWorks support, which is extremely helpful in all aspects!


Review by Andrea | Dec 12, 2014

Exactly what i was looking for!

Works as Described, but Missing a Few Features

Review by Antoinette | Jun 5, 2014

This extension works as described, but I wish it supported coupon codes. Another solutions provider has an extension that does the same thing as this one but with a coupon option, so we ended up buying that one (even though we had already bought this one) and now we use the other option instead.

Works great.

Review by Josie | May 28, 2014

We had an initial problem in that it didn't work with the SCP add on, which I wasn't aware of beforehand. I must have missed this in the documentation. However, SCP has caused jus no end of grief so this was a perfect excuse to stop using it.

So, this add on now works great - just as it says on the tin.

Great support from aheadworks as usual too.

Finally the extension I needed

Review by Frank Ligthart | Mar 6, 2014

I needed the action prices to show in the cart at zero costs. And not as a rebate subtracted from the subtotals. This extension gives you this functionality for promotions. Another great feature is the pop-up menu showing you the promotions that you are entitled to. Excellent work again from AW with great support!

Powerful thing!

Review by Ben | Feb 5, 2014

This plugin adds options that Magento has been missing for so long. Anyone who's just going to get this app - I advise that you explore priority option carefully. We've managed to set up tier-like offers (better gift items for more expensive carts).

The working one, finally!

Review by Alice C. | Jan 29, 2014

I'd been looking for something like that for quite a while. A couple of other modules I tried were just horrible, but the Add Free Product one by Aheadworks shines!
It's simple, it's flexible, and it's reliable. Nothing more to say here.

Very Useful Extension

Review by Afrodite | Jan 23, 2014

Does those things that very annoyingly Magento doesn't such as letting you offer a discounted product when a customer buys something.
The pop up is very useful. Very easy to install & set up.
Only gripe is that it does not seem to work on configurable products.

Useful extension

Review by Gediminas | Dec 17, 2013

5 Stars

Review by Dan | Nov 19, 2013

Now we don’t use native Magento “Buy X get Y free” shopping cart price rule anymore. The module provides us with the most flexible functionality. Thanks aW for such a great extension.
