When is a BOGO not a BOGO?

Why does my complimentary dinner (*with purchase of a full price dinner) coupon insist that it "is not buy one get one free"?

I recently received a coupon what would appear to be a BOGO dinner at a restaurant. The wording of the coupon is "Enjoy your complimentary dinner! *with purchase of a full price dinner", but then the fine print ends by saying "This certificate is not a buy one get one free." Is there some difference between "buy one, get one" and "get one, if you buy one"? Is there some financial reason? Tax reason? Do high end steakhouses not lower themselves to offering the same coupons as burger joints? What gives?
