A constant question we receive has to do with location, location, location. Some sweepstakes giveaway entrants may not necessarily use their home address to enter the sweeps, due to either convenience or being in a rural area. If you have a P.O. Box, the Prize Patrol will make every effort to find you. Our last SuperPrize winner used a P.O. Box, and we were still able to track him down! Make sure your residential address is up to date with the Postal Service. If you already use your residential address for your online and mail-in entries, you can update your address at pch.com, or call our customer service number to update your profile.
With the excitement on PCH Facebook fan page, sometimes sweepstakes giveaway entrants post their contact information on our PCH Fan Page’s wall or in the discussions area. As this is a public area, we ask that entrants NOT post their mailing addresses or phone numbers, or the personal information of others. This is to protect your privacy. As long as your information is up to date, the Prize Patrol should have no trouble finding you if you are our next winner!
Another question I see is, “What if I’m out of town?”
We’ll still do our best to track you down! In my case in 2008, I was at work when the Prize Patrol knocked on my door. Here’s a photo of me calling home with the good news after I was surprised by the Prize Patrol. You can check out my winning moment at Youtube. My neighbors are my relatives, so they pretty much knew my daily schedule. If you’re a bit more “away” than work or volunteering, the Prize Patrol will still do their best to track you down.
Let’s keep the excitement growing! Feel free to hop in to a Discussion on the PCH Facebook fan page, or just say “Hello!” on our wall. A constant discussion running on our PCH Facebook fan page is, “What would you do if you won a sweepstakes?” Share your thoughts with us here and on the PCH Facebook page!
