Busy Week For The PCH Prize Patrol & A Good Week for Winning

Last week was one busy week at Publishers Clearing House for the Contest Department and the PCH Prize Patrol.

We traveled to three destinations to surprise three new Publishers Clearing House winners in person. Two of them were $10,000.00 winners – one of whom entered our sweepstakes at pch.com. (That just proves that it’s a good idea to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes online – at pch.com, PCHSearch&Win.com, or PCH online game sites, such as PCH Lotto, PCH Games or PCH Scratch Cards.)

The climactic visit was to the home of new PCH SuperPrize winner Stephanie Gornichec on Thursday, August 13, to award $1 Million. (The matching winning number eligible for a PCH Wow payout of $100,000 A Week for 52 Weeks was not returned, so a second chance drawing was held to award a base prize of $1 Million.) Naturally, this visit required lots of preparations: making travel arrangements, contacting the local media, ordering the bouquets of roses and balloons, and pulling together all the materials we need for the exciting presentation of The Big Check.

The name of the SuperPrize winner was announced in a PCH commercial on August 13th during The NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. Then, right from the winner’s home, we beamed the winning moment to pchtv.com where people could see it – just as it actually happened.

Meanwhile our Contest Department has just sent out $1,000.00 checks to over 200 lucky contest entrants all over the USA. Imagine the surprise those folks will receive when an overnight package arrives with an unexpected cash prize windfall.

On top of all of that, last week our recent “$5,000 A Week for Life” PCH winner, Doris Gray, a beloved school teacher from New Jersey was featured in a special TV show called “The Lottery Changed My Life” on The Learning Channel.

With all this winning going on, you are probably thinking, “I want that to be ME!” Well, it can be!

Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes online right now. And enter often – We want to make you a winner!

Good luck!

  2. The INITIALS contest and the LOCAL AWARD contest are 2 different giveaways, each with its own set of prize winners.
    In every sweepstakes promotion Publishers Clearing House includes “Sweepstakes Facts” which clearly list every prize, its giveaway number and end date.
    Recently we ran Giveaway No. 1389 which awarded 210 local prizes of $1,000 each in local TV areas across the country. In that same timeframe, we also ran Giveaway No. 1403 which awarded 676 prizes of $100 to each two-letter initial combination, standing for first-name and last-name.

      I kind of pooh-poohed Rush’s theory that they did this to nudge Obama in the right dirtecion but is it coincidence that right after this he began talking gay marriage? It all kind of reminds me when they butter you up at work, usually there’s a reason.
