Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.There is no reason why you can not include the cost of the accessory as part of your marketing cost. It is for convenience and cost saving only that the accessory is being shipped in the same box as the main product.It is an internal accounting treatment. Your accounting team need to journal the cost of the accessory (a free product to the customer) to marketing expenses.
I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
