No, because lotteries are outside the scope of GoodRelations, except  
for offering the sales of a lottery voucher.

That's possible. There are two ways:

Expose a gr:Offering with a gr:eligibleTransactionVolume with a  
gr:hasMinCurrencyValue of 75 USD and attach two gr:TypeAndQuantityNode  
instances, one for the free alarm clock, and one for the other item on  
sale.

This requires that you materialize the relevant combinations of items  
from your store, but when you expose the data via a SPARQL endpoint,  
that may not be a limitation.

The second way is to link from any of your gr:Offering instances to a  
second gr:Offering via gr:addOn, attach a price of 0 USD and a  
gr:eligibleTransactionVolume with a gr:hasMinCurrencyValue of 75 USD  
to that second gr:Offering.

> (3) discount coupons like http://speaktomecatalog.com/coupons/cpon_ca_4.html

Relative price specifications are not supported by the default  
GoodRelations vocabulary, but you can easily define a subclass of  
gr:PriceSpecification

foo:RelativePriceSpecification a owl:Class ;
	rdfs:subClassOf gr:PriceSpecification ;
	rdfs:label "RelativePriceSpecification"@en ;
	rdfs:comment "Positive values indicate a surcharge, negative a  
discount to the regular price of the offering" .

Then, attach an instance of this to the gr:Offering and constrain is  
validity by gr:eligibleTransactionVolume.

I may add this to GoodRelations with one of the next service updates.


Best
Martin
