 Buy at least X items.... Enter the number of items then the categories, products, and so on from which customers may pick. See also: Selecting discounteligible items.
 Get the cheapest Y for free. Enter the number of items to which no charge will be applied at checkout. Only this number of the cheapest items will be free.
This discount supports multiples. That is, if a promotion is "buy at least 5 eligible items, and get the most expensive 1 item for free", and a customer buys 10 items, they get 2 free items. You can limit this factor by applying redemption limits.
Most expensive items for free
Buy at least X eligible items, and get the most expensive Y items for free. For example, if an order includes 5 hardcover books, the most expensive one is free.

Buy products for fixed price
Buy a fixed number of items from selected categories for a set price. For example, buy 3 men's shirts for £50.
The discount is applied only if the fixed price is less than the items' cost. For example, you create a fixed price discount: Buy 2 from TopTunics for $250.
 Buyer A selects two TopTunics items: $150 each, $300 total. In this case, the discount is applied, because the fixed price ($250) is less than the $300 total.
 Buyer B selects two TopTunics items: $100 each, $200 total. In this case, the discount is not applied, because the fixed price ($250) exceeds the $200 total.

This is different from the way that Optimizely Commerce typically handles redemption limits, where item quantity does not affect them.

Examples
Spend at least $1000 and get $100 discount off total order amount.
 Customer buys a projector for $1000. There are no shipping costs or taxes. No other discounts or coupons are applied. Customer gets $100 discount, so order total is reduced to $900.
 Customer buys a tablet for $999. The order has a shipping cost of $20 and taxes of $10. Customer does not get the $100 discount because the order total (excluding shipping and taxes) is less than the minimum.
 Customer buys a laptop for $1010. There are no shipping costs or taxes. The order has a promotional code worth $50, which is applied before this discount. Since the adjusted order total, $960, is less than the minimum, the customer does not get the $100 discount.
