Create a Buy One Get One (BOGO) Offer

To create a buy one, get one offer, you'll need to have both Product Discount, and Product Upsell installed. You must complete the Duplicate & Hide Install Instructions on your published theme before completing these steps. This code hides the discounted duplicate product from the storefront so it can only be purchased in the BOGO offer, without it customers will be able to purchase discounted products without qualifying for an offer.

For more detailed information of best practices check out the Problem Solved: Creating upsell BOGO offers on Shopify blog post.
