A GWP is currently the only promotion type that can be used with or without a promotion code. If you want to provide a GWP without requiring your customer to enter (for example, a free gift with any purchase), then you would just leave the "Promotion Code" entry box blank and the GWP will be automatically applied.
Due to this functionality, it also means that a customer is now able to get multiple promotions upon checkout. A customer could get a GWP which doesn't require a code, in addition to another promotion(coupon, GWP) which does require a code upon checkout. WSM still only allows one promotion code per checkout.
