A Big Check and Balloons From PCH – The White House Wish

Distributing Big Checks is second nature to the PCH Prize Patrol. But in a recent White House press conference, spokesman Robert Gibbs was asked his opinion on how the Obama administration’s tax cut was actually delivered to Americans. In describing how such a cut might have been improved he expressed with a twinkle in his eye a wish that the Publishers Clearing House Big Check approach would have gotten a better public reception than the route chosen. (It was dribbled out over time in people’s paychecks.)

“Would I have liked to hire somebody to knock on everyone’s door like the Publishers Clearing House guys — with the Big Check and the balloons?” said Gibbs. “Sure, maybe it would have had a greater effect said Gibbs. “Obviously the marketers got kicked out of that meeting.”

Well, our Prize Patrol knows that nothing beats the thrill – not to mention the usefulness – of a giant cash windfall from PCH. We’ve awarded over $225 million worth of prizes. That’s a lot of Big Checks – and balloons and roses and champagne.

Whenever our Prize Patrol is in the Washington DC area they often remark how fun it would be to knock on the President’s door and see how he’d react to a Prize Patrol surprise visit. Would he say, “OMG” (like virtually everybody else) or jump up and down, or cry, or say ‘What took you so long?” But the security around the White House hasn’t allowed them to get past the big iron gates – as much as all the guards think it would brighten any First Family’s day. In any event, whether you are the President or just an average hard working citizen you can’t win unless you return your entry!

You might be thinking, “Well, no president that I know of needs a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House more than I do. So save yourselves some trouble and just hurry up to my front door.”

We hear you, blog-reader! So make sure you enter the PCH Sweepstakes! (“You can’t win it if you’re not in it.”) Just click on this link to pch.com and enter today – and enter every day for more chances to win.

Wishing you the best of luck.

Well, we all could use the money for many different reasons. Health-My 29 fiance was diagnosed with cancer in March 2010, bills, life, finances-to get caught up or at least stay afloat. Life takes everyone in different directions, different steps of life. We all could use this money, the savior of a life time TREMENDOUSLY…..Its a dream come true, for sure. Its something that everyone desires and needs. Wish us all luck, counting down the days to 11/29. 10 days after my fiance’s 30th BirthDay…Boy would this be the greatest surprise and stress reliever for him not to mention the best year of our lives!! He has enough to worry about rather than worrying about how to pay for our wedding that we booked prior to the date he was diagnosed with cancer, bills–one thing after another, I could go on and on!!! BRING-IT-ON PCH!
Good luck all.
Good Night.

Yes, It would be nice if our BIG Government operated as smoothly and as efficiently as PCH,Mr Gibbs, but alas. UNLESS “we the people” did a good job on election day our Dreams may Never Come True,
U N L E S S

we all remember to play the AMAZING SWEEPSTAKES OPPORTUNITES OFFERED BY PCH and THEN AWARDED BY DAVE and His OUTSTANDING PRIZE PATROL TEAM.

We KNOW we can count on PCH.
