The Limited: Buy One, Get One 50% Off

The Limited is offering a buy one, get one 50% off promotion this weekend, for Mother's Day.  The promotion is good from May 7 (yesterday) until Sunday, May 10.  This promotion applies in-store and online, but excludes markdowns.  No codes or coupons are required.

One interesting thing that I've noticed is that this promotion doesn't seem to work correctly online.  When these types of offers are in-store, you can combine items, as long as you only get the discount on the lower priced item.  However, online, it only seems to work if you fulfill the buy/get quantities with the exact same item, including color.  

For example, yesterday I was trying to pick up a travel jewelry case, and I added one of each color to my basket, and they were both full price.  I only got the 50% off when I added two of the cases in the same color, and then the second one was half off (and the other color was still full price).  I hope that makes sense - it's just something to watch out for.
