BOGO marketing campaign - Is there a way?

I assumed I'd be able to create a buy one, get one free campaign - for tomorrow (gulp) - easily through a Marketing campaign on two different entrees, but it doesn't look like there's capability.

 

Am I missing something?

Re: BOGO marketing campaign - Is there a way?

Hey @aboutfacebeauty thanks for asking! If you are selling plastic gift cards then you cannot do a BOGO sale for them automatically, however you can create a 100% discount that you can apply to the second gift card in your item sales. Doing this will allow you to keep the balance loaded on your gift card, but also won't actually charge the customer for the second gift card. 

 

Let me know if you have any other questions! Thank you!

Similar to a BOGO sale, yes? Try out Square's automatic discounts feature. I moved you to a thread to learn how to set up.
