BOGOF is a sales technique to be found in the supermarkets from the 1990s onwards. This acronym stands for Buy One Get One Free. It also appears as BOGOFF - buy on get one for free. It is regarded as one of the most effective forms of special offers for goods.

(Avoid confusing it with 'Bog Off!' - an offensive variant of bugger off.)
