How It Works/Timeline


The deadline for applications is February 16, 2014. Applications may close earlier if all available spots in the hunt are filled before this date.

There are 125 spots available in Spring 2014 Twisted Hunt. Applicants will be reviewed in order, and the first 125 applicants to qualify will be awarded these spots. In the past, we’ve raised the cap because of the volume of applications. This time we will NOT raise the limit. 125 stores is plenty.
