Free gift item charge

Some items will offer a free gift with purchase. When an order is placed, the free gift may be split into a separate order showing that it has a charge. Although there is a charge, when you check the main order on your “Invoice” or “Newegg – Order Confirmation email” you will see a discount that cancels out the amount of the free item.

The example below is a shortened version of a Newegg – Order Confirmation email you receive after you place an order. In the Order Confirmation email the charge for the free gift is shown under order 2, however directly above it (order 1) your main order will show “DISCOUNT FOR AUTOADD” with the amount subtracted.



Note:

Any applied taxes to the main order will be split onto the free gift order as well to cancel out any extra charge.

Note:

Digital gifts will be emailed to you within 24 hours after the physical items have shipped.

Remove free gift

If there are any free gifts offered with the purchase of an item, but you don’t want/need them, you can remove them before placing your order. You’ll be able to remove them from either the product page or from within your shopping cart.

  • From within the product page, you will see a box with a check mark. If you uncheck that box, the free gifts will not be added to your order.
  • If you want the items, but you unchecked the box by accident, you can re-add the gifts by going back to the product page, checkmarking the box, and adding everything to your cart.

  • From within the Shopping Cart, you can remove the free gift(s) by clicking on the REMOVE button.
  • When you select the REMOVE button, a pop-up will appear showing you the free gift(s) that will be removed. You will need to click on the REMOVE OFFER button to have the free gift(s) taken off your order.
  • If there is more than 1 free gift, you cannot choose to keep one gift and remove the rest. If you remove one free gift, the others associated with the primary item will also be removed.

Note:

Free gift offers on Newegg.com are not available on Newegg’s eBay.com store.
