Besides a Big Sweepstakes Check, What Would You Like the Prize Patrol to Bring You?

The late “Great One” Jackie Gleason had a long-running line that he uttered on virtually every one of his TV shows:  “Ummmmmm: HOW SWEET IT IS.”  He’d roll his eyes as if tasting the most heavenly ambrosia.

I’ve seen that expression on the faces of Publishers Clearing House winners when they receive the Big Sweepstakes Check – worth thousands or millions of dollars – and a bottle of “vintage Prize Patrol champagne.”

But recently someone told me she’d rather have a fancy box of Godiva chocolates.  That way she could savor “how sweet it is” with a bite a day for weeks.  She may have a point.

Others are overcome by the bouquets of long-stemmed American Beauty roses.  Some have exclaimed, “Roses!  I haven’t gotten roses since I turned sixteen.”  Others have said, “Oh my, I’ve never received roses like this!”

How about you?  We always enjoy reading your comments in response to our PCH Blogs.

It goes without saying that the first thing you’d like us to deliver is — ta-dah – The Big Sweepstakes Check!  But what else would you like?  Champagne?  Chocolates?  Beer?  A plant?  Mistletoe?  A gift card for the movies or Starbucks?  A favorite title from our “magazine store”?   It may sound silly, but let us hear from you.

Of course there’s no point in telling us what you’d like if you are not “in the game.”  You’ve got to be in to win it!  So enter the fabulous Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes right now by clicking on this link to pch.com.  You have nothing to lose — and possibly millions to gain (plus a few pounds if you ask for a huge box of candy).

Wishing you all the best,

Dave Sayer

Expensive Chocolates (nah-bad enough we have enough calories added from the holidays)
The roses are pretty and all but they don’t last too long. I remember my Grandmother having a Christmas Cactus that someone had given her on her wedding day, it was HUGE when she died, and everyone took a clipping from it…Tradition from PCH is the balloons, roses, champagne and the BIG CHECK-that should never change BUT something new needs to be added..the other thing that keeps coming into my mind is I have these metal mice from Regal Arts & Gifts in my garden about 16″ High-I would love to see each day a Dave Sayer/Prize Patrol Team statue in my garden to always remind me of the day I won-it would last forever and it would always make me smile each day I saw it…they would never be able to part with it because it would have been a day that changed their life!~I guess I don’t really have any ideas.. You are doing fine with what you do give away just ask the winners! *smile*

Anythinh from your creative mind is appreciated. Until now the giant check is on top of my piano. The champagne is still on the fridze and the now withered pretty roses are still on the table. I think most people want and need the real check which could lessen their financial problems especially during this bad economy and global crisis. Everything PCH done is greatly appreciated. In my case I can help millions of people if I can win the milllions.

Nothing more than open arms for a big hug to all you guys … My daughter Hannah would love to have a big box of chocolates and tulips & roses . A hug is good enough for me … I’d want nothing more because y’all would have changed our lives forever with just the prize & I know how good and satisfying it is for you guys to know how you changed a life for good . If I am to become a winner I can asure you that then I’d be able to give back to my loved ones who have gave and gave to me and not only them I’d giving to St Jude and the Ronald McDonald House as well and id becablw to give my daughter the thongs I can’t give to her now and my mother . And my husband can take a much need vacation from his dangerious job on the MS river … So when you ask what we would like for you to bring … I just want open arms for the biggest longest hug any of you have ever recieved in your while life .

Not a champagne kind of guy! I’d have to go with a Samuel Adams Utopias…I’d still wouldn’t know what to do with that kind of winnings at first anyways – I’d probably be in shock well after the Prize Patrol left…thank God for Utopias – can let it sink in slowly & then woohoo it for the rest of the evening to get used to not working (lol)!! Prost!

My husband is saying A Hummer, A Hummer! Ho, Ho, Ho.
He’s a man, go figure. Anyways,
I’d say a basket full of dog treats. We have three of them: A Belgium Malinois (pronounced Malinwa) which we got from a prisoner rehabilitation program in our state. The prisoners that are picked for the program, train the dogs, love and care for them. This teaches the prisoner responsibility and caring. The prisoners then earn money when the dog is sold to a qualified person or family.
The money is then used for the prisoner to help pay back for crimes they have done or for them to enter into a half-way house when they qualify for such.; we now have a Tri-colored German shepard we got from our local Animal Shelter.
She was a mess when we got her.
They thought maybe she had been beaten. She had little cuts all over, and dried blood and dirt in her ears. She had a respiratory infection too. She
seemed very scared. We got her all fixed up with the vet and the medications she needed. Lots of love and she’s blended well with our family and other dogs.; then there is our little guy, who we’ve had the longest.
He may be little, but he thinks he’s a big dog. He’s a minature pinsher. He loves being held in me or my husband’s lap.
Well, they love treats and they’d be happy with a basketfull.
A very early Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of the PCH prize patrol and staff throughout your organization.

I agree !!! the Roses are nice but do not last a long time.. as is the champagne, but not EVERYONE likes champagne.. but a nice box of dark & light chocolate to savor for days to come might be a nice remembrance of that special day.. that everyone in the family can enjoy..

Share the Joy as they might say..

If the PCH Team showes up at my house with the Big Check, It would fabulous if they had some of there Best New York Pizza with them.
My family members have been to New York several times and I have never been. I heard several times how the pizza is out of this world.
Pizza of course is one of my favorite things to eat.

Next year I will have to have my left hip replaced.I live in Tullahoma,TN 37388.(hint) I am the person who likes to highlight my name and address in yellow.

We do not drink so beer and champagne would go in the trash here. Food would not last, but I do like the concept of the chocolate. I guess what I would like is a novelty thing…I love Teddy Bears so it would be lots of fun to get a Teddy Bear wearing a blue blazer with a PCH patch on it holding “The Big Check” (mini version).

    Katrina King that’s a great idea!

    Melanie said...

    I like Katrina King’s idea also. It’s so cute and the bear will last ALWAYS. Many folks don’t drink champagne so, why not allow all the gifts that come with the prize to be something that last (the bear, the check and the video) and something that is great for “right now” (the flowers and the balloons)

    Sounds great to me!

How about a button or Pin to wear that says, “Ask Me How I Won With PCH.” This way others can enter the contests and the winner gets to tell their story to all who ask.

That’s all I could come up with today :-)

I will be honest it sure would be nice to see your smiles and you to knock on my door but I think the only thing I could possibly want is for you to bring me a list of Charity organizations truly in need because I could never spend that much money I prolly would be comfortable just the way we live. Life and health is more precious than anything else and I would love to see someone else smile when I hand them over some checks.

One of those ammonia pellets might be a good idea. You know those pellets that are used to wave under someone’s nose when they pass out from over excitement. I have never passed out before, however, I am thinking that I might be so overcome with surprise and excitment that you are REALLY at my front door, that I just might.
I LOVE RED ROSES and have not had those since my WONDERFUL wedding day.
I Like Champagne, however I prefer a really good EISWEIN (GERMAN ICE WINE), however, at that time, I would not care if you brought a bottle of Dasani water with you. I think the Novelty of the Ballons is a Good idea as well. They help to EXPAND the Celebration. And of course, I can’t forget the BIG CHECK. The BIG CHECK will be framed, and then placed on the WALL in our Family Room. I know the bank cannot process the BIG CHECK through their system, so a standard sized check is presented, that can actually be processed. (I read this in one of the blogs).
Perhps, Ya’ll could stay for coffee, or share in the bottle of what ever you bring with you.
It will take me no time at all to whip up a good Cajun meal, (Once I am revived). I have thought that it would be nice to have you all gathered at our dinner table, just to talk and to share stories and a home cooked meal. If you wouldn’t mind I would like my husband to video tape our visit, to be able to play it back just to remind ourselves of this life changing event.
Ok, so I am DREAMING, but this is the point of entering all of the PCH Sweepstakes. Dream of what could be, and maybe, just maybe…………

Well i think most people would choose money especially with somany ppl losing their jobs. The only thing above money would be health…but that can not be given unless you give them insurance or free meds they need. A new SUV i would love to have if not that then a week vacation anywhere that its warm….LOL
