Buy 3 – Pay 2 – Get 1 – Taste none (fine)

The stuff is so bad, people will pay extra not to have to drink more than one?

@DnT: or it is so good the sellers want you to pay two for them.

While I can’t see the size of what’s being sold, at 15 cents per yuan, the bottle costs nearly what it would here in the USA.

Sadly, I have seen this exact error at my local grocery store here in the States. More and more Engrish is homegrown.

That second Hanzi is “add,” is it not? So I guess they’re trying to say, “Buy three get one free.”
This may be pretty obvious to many of you — but I’m trying to learn some Chinese characters this summer, so I’m very excited I recognized one! 😀

No, I’m buying 3, and leaving 2 empties on the shelf!

I think you are overcomplicated parsing this “sentence”.
I read it is buy 3 and get 1 free. With “free” being implicit.
