Prize Winners Agree: PCH Prize Patrol Can Knock Anytime They Want

A few years ago we ran a promotion called “Wake Up A Winner.” The idea was that you could go to bed one night with no idea of what could happen the next day, and then be awakened by the PCH Prize Patrol knocking on your door in the early morning with the startling news, “You are a Publishers Clearing House prize winner!” We ran TV commercials which showed people coming groggily to their doors in nightgowns and bathrobes and their sudden realization that they were in the midst of a video-taped winning moment.

While the TV commercials indicated that such surprises could indeed occur, the prize winners themselves were still mightily shocked. “Are you serious?!? Just look at me!” some ladies would cry as their hands tried to cover the curlers in their hair. One man said, “Whoops. Wait a sec – let me put some clothes on.”

In the end, however, none of these lucky people gave a darn what they looked like. They were just thrilled that they were winners of huge cash prizes from PCH. Every one of them expressed the same sentiment: “I don’t care if you woke me up. This is better than a dream!”

That’s the way all our prize winners feel. Sometimes our arrival clearly disrupts the routine of someone who works from his or her home. Sometimes we apologize for interrupting a family’s dinner hour. But the winners always say, “Heck, you can come anytime you want!”

I’ll bet you feel the same way. So we won’t ask you to tell us when you’d prefer a delivery of roses, balloons and a Big Check. The only thing we ask is that you ENTER the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes! That’s the most important thing. If you don’t enter you can’t win!

Since you’re already online, why not enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes online today — and every day. A click on this link to pch.com will get you started!

Good luck!

To all you would be winners! I have been following all the directions up till this date, AP. 7th WED. 5pm. I have been eagerly waiting for more info on keeping up with the requirements to win until I received info today at the above time stating if I were not on time to submit the info which is today (past post office mailing deadline) I will not be eligible to continue. How phony is this??? How am I to make the post office open when it is closed??? I’ve done all I was expected to do on time until this notice.

Margaret A. Butler said...

I have come to believe that I will never win. Bad part is I really believed in a chance and thought that I may be able to take care of my family if I won. I work several hours and go home to a mother-in-law I take care of cause she can’t work cause of her heart and a husband who can never work again because of a major back surgey and has to have more. So I have to work around the clock some days just to make ends meet.
I am not asking for big riches just enough to take care of my family. My eleven year old does without alot of times cause I can’t pay for extra things like sports and different clubs cause of the cost.

Deborah Holland said...

Hi Margaret,
As we would also love to see you as one of our big prize winners, remember all entries received have an equal opportunity of winning. The more you enter the more chances you have to win. Winners are randomly chosen and you never know which entry will provide the next winner. Good Luck!

Deborah Holland said...

Hi Kayla,
We really do give away millions! Since 1967 PCH has given away over $250 Million from coast to coast. However, please keep in mind that our winners are selected randomly, so each entrant has an equal chance of winning – regardless of how long he or she has been entering. So keep those entries coming and best of luck!
Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway.

Of course winning would be profound, but having an “Oprah” moment would be the ultimate!!! Arriving at a random persons door with balloons and a fat check in hand, has got to be the most blissful feeling on the planet. To give someting of that nature to one lucky person has got to make you feel like a true to life Santa Claus.
Food for thought…..get the public involved and allow a random person to go along with you on the ride of a lifetime. Truely awesome !!!!
