The story behind the hunt
The year is 1692. The air is cold and dark clouds stain the sky as Maria’s limp body hangs from the tree in the center of town. Just hours ago, her fellow townsfolk cheered voraciously as the housemaid was accused of witchcraft and sentenced to death. They cackled and jeered at the sight of her horror, but in the end it was Maria who had the last laugh. In her final moments, before the noose took hold, she cursed the town, vowing to haunt its residents for all eternity.
Fast forward to present time. Maria still wanders the earth, bound by the curse she tied to the town. But now that her accusers are long deceased and the town abandoned, she searches for her coven in hopes of regaining a sense of belonging.
Tales of magic lights spark her curiosity. Could this be her beloved coven?
She has now wandered into the twisted webbing of LIFX.com, where she searches through magic light after magic light in hopes of reunion. Alas, we have nothing for her here. Instead, all we can do is help Maria by ending her era of horror and haunting.
To do this, Maria must be found in a new spot every day for 13 days. Only then will she return to rest in her rotting grave. Over the next 13 days, we’ll release clues on our Instagram Story that’ll guide you to where you can find Maria across our site.
1/ This competition is no longer split by region. Nine winners will be selected at random daily.
2/ You no longer need to click on Maria to get the discount code. To enter the daily draw, screenshot her and email the image to email@example.com.
3/ This competition is no longer speed-based. You will have 12 hours from the release of the clue to find Maria and email us.
4/ You can only win once, and will not be entered into the random draw again after winning. (Note: This does not impact your eligibility to win the Instagram Giveaway Prize. You will still be eligible.)

How will I know if I win?
You will know if you win if, after clicking the hidden witch Maria, you are taken to your shopping cart immediately and see a free item (at $0.00 cost) in your checkout list, and are able to complete your shipment. Make sure to complete the order and ship your free prize to yourself as other people can still play and win until you’ve secured your order.
How will I know if I don’t win?
If you’re not one of the three quickest people to (1) find the hidden witch, (2) click on her and (3) check out with your free prize by completing your order, you will see the message “Oops you weren't fast enough! This code has expired, try again later.” And/or you won't be able to complete your order for free. Make sure to play again on the following days as you always have the chance to win in the future.
What if I think I win but I don’t see anything free in my cart?
If you don’t have a free item in your cart, or your item cannot be processed that means you haven’t won the prize on said day. Make sure to play again on the following day as you always have the chance to win in the future.
If I win, how long do I get to keep the free item in my cart?
The first three people to click on the witch and fully check out by completing with the free prize in their shopping cart will receive the free item. That means there’s no time to lose! Hurry and complete the order before the chance is gone for the day.
If I win, can I shop around on the site and still have the free item in my cart once I’m finished?
Unfortunately no, someone may beat you to it and check out with the free prize before you. We recommend finishing the competition by fully checking out with the free prize first, and then return to browsing our site at your leisure.
Can I go back and win more than one free prize in the same day?
No. Only one prize per person (of the first three people per region) can be won per day. Any duplicate orders to the same individual will be cancelled.
Can I win again if I’ve already won on a previous day?
Absolutely! Feel free to play every day for 13 total prizes.
