* Not the same thing as throwing something in for free (usually), but a SpiritualSuccessor to this trope can be found in corporate presentations at tech conventions, in which the original speaker goes back on stage to announce "one more thing", usually a surprise update to a popular product line. Popularized by Steve Jobs' keynote speeches for Apple.

** In Australia, Tim Shaw was notorious for this to the point where he introduced an award at the Logies with this trope which included steak knives.
** This is also associated with the late Creator/BillyMays.

* The Music/TomWaits song "Step Right Up" from ''Music/ClosingTime'' parodies this StockPhrase and the associated commercial banter by endlessly cataloging all possible amenties into a single pitch. Waits was very upset when Frito-Lay used a [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong soundalike]] for a Cheetos ad.
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's early song "Mr. Popeil" is an homage to Ron Popeil's commercials, in the musical style of Music/TheB52s.
* Jihad Jerry and the Evildoers (A.K.A. Jerry Casale of {{Music/Devo}}) has the song "That's All She Wrote" which includes this phrase in the chorus. Considering how often Devo parodies corporate taglines, this is probably no coincidence.

* On ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', Doofenshmirtz creates the scorch-inator to destroy the towers that broadcast infomercials, because he has an addiction to them and it's taking time away from his evil plans. His speech to Perry the Platypus is in the form of an infomercial, and at the end he says: "But wait! There's more!" It is then revealed he doesn't actually have anything more to say.
