It it quite common for the freebie item to be sold for the full retail price, especially when introduced, so I don't think you're being fair. It may actually save someone money if he/she was going to buy both, anyway. You're supposed to do the math before you buy anything. Additionally, the whole point behind these offers is to entice buyers. It's not a criminal offense, and you're free to not buy what's being sold.
I just purchased another flip phone. The salesperson tried to entice me with a smartphone, apps, and mobile browsing. None of which I need, even if I find it appealing. Instead, I picked the flip phone for the long battery life and durability. I'm in the field a lot; I can't afford to miss client calls because of a dead battery or cracked screen. I can watch movies and play games at home. And it turns out, my flip phone has web, email, and a handful of apps.
Self-control - it's something so many people lack these days. /soapbox

Well that pretty much disqualifies you from talking here.
No offense, but wow.
