Step By Step Player’s Guide – An In Depth Look at Deal or No Deal

ROUND 1: TO DEAL OR NOT TO DEAL?

– Each game can last up to 3 Rounds. Each Round has a Deal, a Magic Number of people and a Deadline.
– We show you a popular product on our website with its retail price.
– Round 1 starts. We offer you a Deal on that product, an outrageous discount! We also give you a Magic Number and a Deadline. Let’s say the Magic Number is 10 people and the Deadline is tomorrow at noon!
– You check out the Product…you check out the Deal. What happens next?
– You can’t resist the Deal! You find the game on the LightInTheBox Insider Facebook wall, click Comment and write DEAL!
– Now you watch and wait…the Magic Number is 10. That means if 9 other people Comment DEAL, the game is over and ALL 10 of you win a Coupon Code for that product at the Deal’s discounted price!
– Maybe you don’t like the Deal…you want to hold out for a better one! If10 people Comment NO DEAL first, we go to Round 2. It’s DEAL people VS. NO DEAL people, and the first to reach the Magic Number get their way!
– If we don’t reach the Magic Number of players (10 people in this example), and not enough people comment DEAL or NO DEAL by the Deadline, the game ends with no prizes! Aww that sucks.

ROUND 2: DO YOU FEEL LUCKY PUNK?

– Still here? Let’s imagine Round 2 has started. Oh wow an even BIGGER Deal on that product! We’re practically giving it away! But this time the Magic Number is higher. Round 2’s Magic Number is 15, so now 5 more people will need to participate…better tell a friend! The Deadline is the next day at noon, you’ve got 24 hours.
– You check out the Product (still want it!)…you check out the Deal…AND you check out the Magic Number. Now if 15 of you Comment DEAL, all 15 of you win a Coupon Code for that Product at that Outrageous Price!
– If 15 of you Comment NO DEAL first though, we’re on to the 3rd and FINAL Round!
– If we don’t reach the Magic Number of players (15 people now), and not enough people comment DEAL or NO DEAL by the Deadline, the game ends with no prizes! Aww that’s like eating moldy pizza!

ROUND 3: SCRAMBLE!

– So you didn’t like the Deal in Round 1….you SCOFFED at the Deal in Round 2…and you along with friends and complete strangers have PUSHED US around TWISTED OUR ARMS to offer you the 3rd and FINAL DEAL of the Game! The product’s the same, but this price is Unbelievable! We’d might as well be paying YOU! It’s robbery! But if you want our FINAL DEAL you gotta earn it. The Magic Number now is 20.
– Now we need 20 people to comment DEAL Before The Deadline and all 20 of you will win this Incredibly Valuable Coupon Code! If 20 people can’t Comment in time, no dice!

The Great Hunt #2: Daniela Silva Receives Her Prize!

Just thought we’d give you a quick update on one of the earlier winners of our Great Hunt contests.

Daniela Silva was the lucky winner of  Great Hunt #2 and she just sent us some gorgeous photos of herself wearing her prize – a grand wedding gown from LightInTheBox.com. We really were so excited to see them! I am sure you will agree that Daniela looks stunning, but if you know her, please don’t share this with her fiancée! :)

Great Hunt 2# Winner, Daniela, tries on her prize from LightInTheBox.com

As part of the Great Hunt #2, Daniela selected this halter ball gown from LightInTheBox’s bridal collection, posted it on our Facebook fan wall and collected a whopping 750+ likes from friends. How did she do it? Well, Daniela told us she got her best buddies involved and asked them to post her entry everywhere on Facebook – their own walls, other fan page walls and even on wedding websites and blogs! So there you have it, if you want to win the next Great Hunt, get some friends involved and ask everyone online to ‘like’ your entry!

And finally, here is a sweet message from Daniela, sent to us after she received her fabulous prize:

Dear LITB, my dress just came here and I just cant believe it!!! It’s gorgeous, absolutely fabulous, it’s much more than I expected!!! MUCH MUCH MOREEE!!!!!!!! I’ll always be so grateful to you LITB, this is just my perfect gift, you just don’t know how happy you’ve made me!”

Daniela will surely look stunning at her wedding, planned for early 2011. Can’t wait to see the wedding pics!

If you are inspired by Daniela’s win, why not join the current Great Hunt? Good luck!
