Bluehost WordPress hosting

The core WooCommerce plugin has some good coupon/discount options to successfully run an online store. But that may not fulfill your needs if you are looking for even more advanced coupon functionalities such as offer free gift coupons, limit coupons to a particular group member/user role, create store credit/gift certificate coupons, automatically generate unique coupons, track the performance of a coupon by running a campaign, automatically apply a coupon to the shopping cart via a URL or reward your customers with coupons for leaving reviews. In this article, I’m going to review the best WooCommerce coupon add-ons/extensions that you can use to extend the coupon functionality of your store.


WooCommerce Free Gift Coupons

WooCommerce Free Gift Coupons add-on/extension lets you give away a free item to your customer with a specific coupon code. This can be very useful for your online store when you are trying to reward a specific customer or encourage customers to spend more in order to be eligible for the bonus item.

Configuration

This add-on works very similarly to other coupon types. First, you need to go to WooCommerce > Coupons and click Add Coupon to create a new coupon.

When this add-on is active, a new Discount type called Free Gifts will appear under General. Change the Discount Type to Free Gift and start typing the name of the product that you would like to give away so WooCommerce finds it for you and then you can select it.

How It Works

WooCommerce Free Gift Coupons add-on allows all the same Usage Restriction and Usage Limits as other coupon types, such as by email address, minimum cart total, etc. However, instead of a discount, the customer is rewarded with a free gift item.

The coupon is also redeemed like other coupons. When a customer enters the appropriate coupon code and clicks Apply Coupon, a small message appears saying that the code was applied successfully. The free gift item is automatically added to the cart and the customer can continue shopping or checkout normally.
