Variation to display for specific period of time for specific visitor

Is it possible to display a variation to a specific visitor for a specific period of time and then have it removed?

 

For example, I want to test a "reduced price for 24 hours" offer, and thus, have the offer removed for that specific user after the 24 hour time period has expired.

You could drop a cookie when the visitor arrives and then check it every time they come back to see if they are still within their 24 hours bracket?

Hi Nile. Can you elaborate on what you mean by a specific visitor? How are you identifying this specific visitor and how will these visitors be differentiated from others?

 

Also, do you want to test "no offer" vs "offer", or are you only concerned with showing the discount  for 24 hours to the specific set of people, and that's all? If the latter, then you can just create an experiment with 100% traffic allocation set to the variation and target it to the defined visitor group. Then, you can just start and stop the experiment for the desired time period. 

 

Any additional deatils you can provide would be very helpful in coming up with a solution that will meed your needs.
