A minimum purchase quantity can be particularly useful for lower-priced products that are only profitable/worthwhile to sell at higher quantities.

One of the merchant benefits of running a sale is the added marketing and promotion generated by the offer. By enforcing a maximum purchase quantity (like "limit 1 per customer"), you can ensure that your deal is available to as many shoppers as possible, will potentially last longer, and helps build awareness for your brand.
