Would You Like to Meet the “Mad Men” of PCH?

Two Publishers Clearing House employees who “invented” the PCH Prize Patrol are veteran advertising men. Over the years, Todd Sloane and yours truly have both seen a lot of Madison Avenue – the legendary birthplace of thousands of TV ad campaigns. But we are not literally “mad” men, and we didn’t come up with the Prize Patrol idea in bustling New York City but in the calmer suburban town of Port Washington where PCH was founded in 1953 and is still based.

Until 1989, PCH Sweepstakes winners were notified by phone that they had won big cash prizes. Todd thought an in-person surprise visit with the good news would generate extremely watchable TV commercial footage, and – boy! – was he right. For over 20 years now, major prize winners have been shocked by the PCH Prize Patrol knocking on the door with roses, balloons and –ta-dah! – The Big Check. And our TV ads featuring sweepstakes winning moments are classics of “reality TV.”

How would you like to meet the “mad men” of PCH? With this fall’s Prize Patrol Blitz – with 101 prizes of at least $10,000 in 101 towns and cities across the USA — the chances of a visit are better than you might think.

Of course, the first step to winning is to enter the PCH Sweepstakes. And online sweepstakes entry is easy at pch.com.

At pch.com you can also find out if the Prize Patrol is coming to your area. Play the PCH contest often — every day if you want – and improve your chances of winning. But the entry deadline is approaching fast, so don’t delay!
