I can't figure out how to get this to work...
I want to offer customers a WIDGET (420 value) for free when customers spend $60 on other "non WIDGET" products. Not everyone wants the free WIDGET so I want them to have to add it to their cart.
I was going to offer a code for $20 off the $20 WIDGET when the cart hits $60 but when I set the "cart minimum" it only applies to $60 worth of the WIDGET.
We have an app called Fresh Credit that might be able to help you app. We created Fresh Credit to enable shop owners to give their customers store credit at any time, for any reason, and in any amount. So, ideally with Fresh Credit once a customer spends your 'qualifying amount' you would then enter the credit into the customers account in which they could use the next time they shopped!

Thanks @Cara_ByteStand for the suggestion. I noticed the link for the app you suggested was missing, so if you need to find it here @Rob_Kieckbusch, you can find the app in the Shopify App Store here: FreshCredit by ByteStand.
I'm happy to shed some light on what you're looking to do here. I understand you want customers to receive a free product when they buy a specific dollar amount of products.
I recommend setting up an automatic Buy X, Get Y discount. This discount helps you provide your customers a discount or free product when your customers make a minimum number of products purchase, based on conditions like the types of products or collections they put into their cart, or based on the minimum amount they need to spend.
The customer would also need to add the product that you want to discount, to their cart, to receive the discount. For example, if a customer does not add Widget A to their cart, they will not receive the discount, and the code will not be applied at checkout. If the customer does add Widget A to their cart, and Random products A, B, and C, then they would receive Widget A for free and would see the discount applied at checkout.

Let me know if this helps you accomplish what you need to do!
