Kusura bakma ve affedersiniz.

Merhaba arkadaşlar!

Kusura bakma ve affedersiniz.

They both mean excuse me.

What is the situation to use each expression?

Could you give an example?

teşekkür ederim

They are interchangeable in the most of the situations, but I would translate them in English, respectively as "I am sorry" and "Pardon me"

If I walk through a crowd when I'm in a hurry, I'd say "Affadersiniz, geçebilir miyim?".

And if I realize I offended someone after I told them something wrong then I'd say "Kusura bakma" not "Affadersiniz".
