Prize Patrol Plans Make for A Great Holiday Party Conversation Starter!

In this season of holiday parties it’s hard for me to attend one party without several guests asking – So Dave: Where is the Prize Patrol going next?  My house, right?  Do you remember my address?

I assure them that if they win, the Prize Patrol team will find them for sure. In fact, we haven’t had a situation in over 30 years of awarding prizes where we could not locate our winner.

“But what if I’m not home?  Will you give MY Big Check to somebody else?”

I reassure them that if the Big Check has their name on it, it won’t be given to anyone else.

These party conversations can go on for quite a while, especially if my interrogator is starting on a second or third glass of holiday cheer.  Regardless of how long the chat goes on, I always remind them that if they want to win they’ve got to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, adding “If you’re not in it you can’t win it!”

Everyone likes to hear of our Prize Patrol experiences and all about the winning moments that they have seen on TV.  “Are those people really surprised?”  “What was the weirdest presentation you ever made?”  “Has anybody ever had a heart attack?”   The questions go on and on, and since I’ve awarded hundreds of prizes over the decades I have answers for every one of them.

YOU could be a winner too.  Entering online is fast and easy, AND our rules allow you to enter every day, thereby increasing your chances of winning.  So, don’t delay.  Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes simply by clicking here on this link to pch.com

Who knows?  The next person I get to talk about at a party could be YOU.

Happy holidays!

    Please note, there is no spin device directly on http://www.pch.com. Please provide us with more detail regarding which page you were on (such as the website address/URL, a description of the site, etc.) so that we may look into this further.

      I was reading my yahoo email. There was a spin game pop up so I click. I could not believe it was that much. normally I only get or win a dollar or 25 tokens to 300 tokens. It did not give me time to claim or give me more info coz it quickly move to a different game. You see I am a greenhorn and a neophyte onthis, that’s why. Thanks.

      Hi Rebecca! or to any PCH cust. ser. : I am not definetely sure where that spin pop up came from. All I can say is everytime I am in the computer it shows up. In fact about 12:48 P. M. TX. time till 1:P. M. when I was starting to type my first respons it showed up again. When I am sending and replying to Dave S. on my private email address, it also showed up. Thanks.

        Hi Colette,

        We do not show that your e-mail address has won on any spin game that we have. When it shows up again, please verify that it has PCH on it as there are other companies out there that use a prize wheel in their promotions.

        Regards,
        Chris @ PCh

I am glad that you are clarifying things for us… as I also have been confused with the e-mails that I have been sent…I was also in anitispation for the 10 million for Christmas, plus the 5000 a week for life, but as you say, the only prize for Christmas is the 1,000.00.

this may be something you should be stating better in your e-mails…as they are kind of confusing..

but best of luck to all for the 1,000.00 for Christmas day.!!

Gale said...

Hi Dave Sawyer and the prize patrol,

I have so many emails about the Dec 25th prize. But I also receive several emails a week and about three to mailing a month. I have been getting the mailing for over 20 years. Do all of these actually get rewarded, I see some listed but not all of the ones that I have entered. Most of the emails and mail forms all say that I am in the final round, and have said this for years, I hate to be doubter. But with times the way they are, it sure would be nice to get that knock on the door.

Happy Holidays and good luck to ever the newest winner will be. Don’t waste the winnings, take care of all of your family and do some good.
