Goal



This note will suggest how to address the following business needs.

Our business users would like to offer a promotion for 4 Review Guides as
such that if one buys any 3 of these Guides one would  get a 4th Guide free.

So basically, we need Oracle to recognize when the customer adds four items, for example:
Item 1 $19.95
Item 2 $19.95
Item 3 $19.95
Item 4 $19.95

When all four items are added, then give the user one of the items free:
Item 1 $19.95
Item 2 $19.95
Item 3 $19.95
Item 4 $ 0.00

Three are 8 unique items.
Items have defined with multiple segments.
No items have the same first segment value except for those involved with this promotion.


From the business users' perspective, there are four products in this promotion, which
are the first segment for the item as follows:

10299
12917
1002
12795

Here is the total population of items to consider for this promotion:

(10299-PDF-ENG or 10299-SBC-ENG)
+
(12917-PDF-ENG or 12917-SBC-ENG)
+
(1002-PDF-ENG or 1002-SBB-ENG or 1002-SBC-ENG)
+
(12795-PDF-ENG or 12795-SBC-ENG)

Needs a solution that does not involve customizations.

Is there a way to do the above?
