Type of a scam Online Purchase

I saw an advertisement on Instagram from this scam company that was giving away 2 free products if you pay for shipping and handling. This all looks legitimate if you were casually going through the motions like I had been, except the only payment method I had seen available was credit/debit card when on their website, they have listed various payment methods such as Apple Pay, Google Pay, etc.

Right after checking out with the two "free items", the page gives a prompt that you are selected to receive a "free bundle", for which you have to pay extra shipping to receive. At this point, clicking yes or no still gets you charged for this bundle. It then goes on to tell you that you are eligible for another "free bundle" and that you just have to pay shipping for it. Again, selecting yes or no still gets you charged, so the company actually charges the card used three separate times. There is no page for you to confirm a total shipping cost and you directly finish your order process after you accept or decline the bundles.
