PCH Prize Award Delivery Man Still a Frequent Flier

A year ago The New York Times Business Section published a column about my being a “frequent flier.” Twelve months later, thanks to my position as the Chief Prize Award Delivery Man for PCH, I still qualify. In fact later this morning I’m flying to upstate New York – although this time to visit family who will undoubtedly greet me with, “Hmmm … I see you don’t have a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House for us.”

The Times will soon start charging for a visit to their online archives, so before that happens, click here to read The New York Times story from February 2009 for free.

And here’s a prize award update. Since that story was written, as head of the PCH Prize Patrol I’ve flown to Boise, ID, Detroit, MI, Houston, TX, San Diego, CA, Davenport, IA, Minneapolis, MN (twice), Salt Lake City, UT, Albuquerque, NM (twice), Fort Smith, AR, Dallas, TX, Seattle, WA, Kansas City, MO, and various cities in Florida – plus Chicago, IL (for an appearance and award on a popular daytime talk show) and Greensboro, NC for a surprise visit to a viewer of the CBS Early Show. Since two Prize Patrol Blitz campaigns required visits to over 200 winners – which I couldn’t handle without extra help, I dispatched more than 60 Prize Patrol deputies on countless flights to over 100 cities across the USA including Honolulu, HI. Finally, there were several trips to northeast U.S. winners where our trusty Prize Patrol van did the trick – no flying required. All in all, the prizes awarded totaled nearly $12 million! That’s a lot of cash – plus a lot of roses and balloons!

You may be saying, “Well Dave: that’s all very nice, but you haven’t come to my town or my house for a prize award!”

Don’t despair. There are lots of opportunities to play and win the contests and sweepstakes at PCH in 2010. Of course, you have to enter The Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes to win. But because you are reading this blog, entering is easy: Just go to pch.com where you can win prizes every day. In fact you should enter right now for a chance to win the PCH $10 Million SuperPrize!


Best of luck!

Executive Director

In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected.
