From $1 Million in 1988 to $1 Million A Year for Life in 2011

Re-visiting the $1 Million PCH sweepstakes winners who gave birth to the Prize Patrol

If you’ve been around for over two decades I don’t have to tell you that a lot of things can change over the years. Back in the late 1980’s you probably didn’t have a computer, the internet as we know it didn’t exist, and no one had even imagined a “blog.”

Much has changed at Publishers Clearing House too. We used to be known mainly for selling magazine subscriptions by direct mail. Now we also sell all kinds of merchandise — on the internet too. Of course, PCH shoppers know that we’ve always stood for unbeatable values and customer satisfaction — guaranteed. Our sweepstakes, which started fourteen years after the company’s 1953 founding, remains immensely popular, but now offers more prizes and ways to “play and win” than ever before.

One major change in our sweepstakes occurred in 1988 — when we changed the way we notify winners. Previously we would phone our winners to tell them they’d won. Todd Sloane, now a PCH Senior VP, came to me one day and suggested that delivering Big $1 Million Checks, unannounced and video-taped, to winners’ homes might be more fun and make good TV advertising. I thought it was a fine idea but hard to pull off logistically. Nonetheless, I said OK for Todd and his associate from the Advertising department, Hank, to go to Texas and surprise John Yancy, a man who had just emerged in a drawing as a $1 Million Dollar SuperPrize winner. So off they went — with the Big Check and an amateur home-style video camera.

Well, the results were awesome. You can view the unedited results of our initial foray into “reality TV advertising” on this YouTube clip:

While the camera-work is shaky and non-professional, you can see the drama and joyful emotion that was captured by Todd’s mini-cam. We decided then and there that our old-fashioned way of filming winners ads — weeks later, on a sound stage, with a script — just wouldn’t do. The prize delivery team known as the PCH Prize Patrol was born. Our “actual winning moment” TV advertising is now iconic and has been imitated by the likes of Saturday Night Live and, most recently, by celebrities like Conan O’Brien, in his Prize Patrol spoof TV commercial.

All these years later, John Yancy (a post-grad student back in 1988) and his wife Julie (just home from work in that old video) have seen many changes too. His successful career has taken them from Texas to foreign lands and back again. The then-newlyweds now have three grown children [shown in this smiling family portrait] who are mighty glad that good ol’ Dad was smart enough to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

John entered the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes by mail. That’s still possible these days. But why not make it easy on yourself? Just click here on this link to pch.com and ENTER. It’s simple, and you can enter every day. AND if you enter by the February 15 deadline you could win what could be the biggest SuperPrize in PCH history: $1 Million A Year … for Life!

So hurry, and good luck!

I WOULD BE SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS TOO, BUT WOULD PROBABLY BE SOOOOOOOOOOO SHOCKED THAT I WOULD DEFINTELY NOT BE ABLE TO SPEAK IF THEY TOLD ME I’D BE GETTING A MILLION (GIVE OR TAKE SOME AFTER TAXES), FOR LIFE, I WOULDN’T BE CALMLY ASKING QUESTIONS, I WOULD BE SCREAMINGGGGGGGGGGGG!

I WOULD SAY, “NOW MIGHT BE A REAL GREAT TIME TO POP OPEN THAT CHAMPAGNE!”

OMG OMG OMG OMG

IF ONLY DREAMS COULD COME TRUE
I PRAY ALL NIGHT AND DAY AND WONDER TO MYSELF AS A I LOOK UP AT THE STARS, IF DRAMS REALLY CAN COME TRUE ESPECIALLY IN TIMES WHEN YOU DESPERATELY NEED A MIRACLE THE MOST…

OH TO DREAM AND WONDER..
PRAYING
WISHING
HOPING
DREAMING

THIS MONEY WOULD MEAN EVERYTHING TO US, I MEAN WE ARE THE KIND OF PEOPLE THAT WOULDN’T SPEND HUNDREDS ON FANCY HOUSES OR CARS… A NICE TRIP TO VISIT MY MOTHER’S HOMELAND IN GERMANY WE WOULD DEFINTELY DO SO MY MOTHER COULD FINALLY VISIT HER PARENTS GRAVES AFTER 30 years….

and defintely I WOULD open up a Preschool…

oh if only…

a dream to build a wish on….

PCH Just Keeps Getting better As the Years GO by in 1988* i was just a Youngter 23 years Old back Than still in High School, but to Come Such a long way and to have a Chance at Participating Along like So Many Other have did in the Past. this is Such a great Opportunity for Me To have Enter when I had that Change to Begin with but My Odds of winning is Unbelieveably high but its alway Comes a Time in Someones Life That brings Change for the Better “this Chance of a life time Acheivement Award” we All should Call it. this (1 Million A Year for Life) is So Awesome ONE Can’t even IMAGINE how Many Lives Can be Change by this “SuperPrize” And the years to Come to all of Us who have Enter, Know what to expect Which is the will to ‘WIN’ even gets Greater So for Me and All who enter’d Best of Luck in the Coming Days Ahead!!!

Lucky for Mr. Yancy that he won before the Texas law of limiting sweepstakes winner to only ten thousand. I am sure there will be a lot of changes in the next decade or so. There will be more interesting and unusual entries and a lot more fun games and offers from PCH.By then lots of PCH staff, bloggers and entrants will be gone and lot of newcomers and tyro will take over. Prizes and winnings etc. will change too. But there will be a lot of excitement, sentimental happenings and awesome events that will take place. With the advance technology everything will be easier.Expect a lot of changes. As far as how to announce to the winner there are some pros and cons whatever method to use. But the benefits, joy and happiness outweigh the inconvenience of some announcement method. The only thing one must remember is to enter, enter and enter whatever the method of entry is.Do not forget the deadline of the big bucks is five days from now. So keep the adrenalin flowing and anyone could be lucky eighteen days from today. Keep entering so hurry and good luck like Mr. Sayer said. Use your chant, buddha, rabbit foot, horseshoe and other lucky charms that heip you to win the huge prize which can change your life. BUENA SUERTE!

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD-
LOUIS ARMSTRONG

(revised a bit)
I see trees of MONEYgreen, red roses too AND THE CHAMPAGNE FROM DAVE SAYER…
I see them bloom for me (AT MY DOOR) and you ON THE PCH BLOG,
And I think to myself what a wonderful PCHworld.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white

The bright blessed PCH WEBSITE, the dark sacred night ON THE PCH BLOG,
And I think to myself what a wonderful PCHworld.

The colors of the PCHrainbow so pretty ON THEIR MERCHANDISE PAGE,
Are also on the faces of THE PCH people MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE,

I see PCHfriends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I LIKE you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow,
They’ll learn much more ABOUT PCH TECHNICAL ISSUES than I’ll EVER know

And I think to myself what a PCHwonderful world

Yes I think to myself what a PCHwonderful world.

Hey Dave,
I remember you and you will probably remember Austin, Texas in Sept. 2004. My mom won at PCH but had passed away only a couple of weeks before.
I was never so surprised to pull up to my parents house to check their mail, and seeing this man running across the street as I got in my car. Remember I told you the situation, my dad was in the hospital. You called your legal dept. and the check was award. I still have the big check in my closet and show it to everyone that doubts things like this happen. I have retired also and hope your retirement is good for you. But I will miss you showing up when I win. Because I know I will one day. Love and peace Barbara

THE TALE OF A SWEEPSTAKES WINNER
—————————-

THE CHIMES ON THE CLOCK STRUCK MIDNIGHT WHEN HELEN FINALLY WENT TO BED. ALL WEEK SHE HAD BEEN GETTING MAILINGS FROM PCH.
SOME SAID, “KEEP CHECKING YOUR MAIL FOR THE BLACK ENVELOPE, THAT WILL BE ARRIVING IN YOUR MAILBOX SOON.”
OTHERS SAID, “YOU HAVE NOW REACHED PATROL ELITE STATUS.”

WHAT COULD ALL THIS MEAN HELEN ASKED HESELF… SHE WENT ON THE PCH BLOG AND MADE ONE LAST ENTRY.
FINALLY AT 1:30AM SHE FELL INTO A DEEP DREAM SLEEP AND DREAMT THAT THE PRIZE PATROL TRUCK KEPT POURING MILLIONS AND MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ONTOP OF HER UNTIL SHE WAS SMOOTHERED TO DEATH BY MONEY…

SHE AWOKE THE NEXT MORNING SCREAMING….

“AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW.” SHE SCREAMED ALOUD..OH, IT WAS JUST A DREAM..”

JUST THAN SHE SAW SOMETHING VERY STRANGE..
ON THE FLOOR NEXT TO THE CHAIR WAS A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL.
SHE GOT OUT OF BED, HER COURIOSITY GOT THE BEST OF HER..
SHE PICKED UP THE HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL. THAN SHE SAW ANOTHER..
AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND FOLLOWED ALL THE HUNDRED DOLLAR BILLS TO THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE.
THAN INTO THE KITCHEN…
THE HUNDREDS WENT OUT ALL INTO HER BACKYARD…SUDDENLY!
THERE IN HER BACKYARD STOOD A HUMONGOUS PILE OF THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS…
THAN ALL AT ONCE A SUDDEN WIND CAME AND BLEW ALL THE MONEY INTO THE AIR AND ALL THE MONEY WENT FLYING UP, UP INTO THE SKY…
SHE GASPED!

SHE WENT BACK INTO THE KITCHEN AND MADE HERSELF A CUP OF HOT STRONG COFFEE…

THAN SHE WENT INTO THE LIVING ROOM AND THERE STANDING BEFORE HER WAS DAVE SAYER LAUGHING AND LAUGHING AND LAUGHING…
IN HIS HANDS WERE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, HELEN REACHED OUT TO GRAB THE MILLION DOLLAR CHECK BUT DAVE SAYER JUST KEPT LAUGHING AND LAUGHING, HE GOT FARTHER AND FARTHER AWAY FROM HER…
SUDDENLY TO HER HORROR THE MONEY AND MORE MONEY AND MORE MONEY STARTED TO FALL ONTOP OF HER. SHE GASPED FOR AIR! THE MONEY FILLED HER WHOLE HOUSE…SUDDENLY..HER WHOLE HOUSE BURST OPEN FROM THE MONEY PILLING UP…SHE SCREAMED………….

HELEN WOKE UP FROM THE NIGHTMARE SHE HAD AND SAID, “IT WAS JUST A DREAM…OH, THERE’S STILL ANOTHER WEEK TO DREAM, THANK-GOODNESS!”

SHE GOT OUT OF BED AND SUDDENLY SAW A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL ON THE FLOOR, CURIOUS SHE WENT TO GO PICK IT UP, THERE WERE MANY MORE AND SHE FOLLOWED THEM ALL INTO THE KITCHEN AND THAN THE LIVING ROOM, SUDDENLY TODD SLOANE WAS STANDING IN HER LIVING ROOM, YELLING,”APRIL FOOLS, APRIL FOOLS!” THAN SUDDENLY BILLIONS AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS CAME TUBLING DOWN ON TOP OF HER, SHE GASPED AND SCREAMED.. THAN THE ROOF OF HER HOUSE POPPED OPEN FROM ALL THE MONEY PILLING UP INSIDE.
HELEN SCREAMED WITH JOY……

THE NEXT MORNING SHE WOKE UP FROM HER NIGHTMARE AND SAID ALOUD, “OH, ANOTHER DREAM, THANK-GOODNESS STILL ANOTHER WEEK OF DREAMING LEFT.”

SUDDENLY ON THE FLOOR SHE SAW A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL, SHE HAD A DEJA VU FEELING.. SHE WENT TO GO PICK IT UP AND FOLLOWED ALL THE HUNDREDS INTO THE KITCHEN AND THAN THE LIVING ROOM, AND THERE IN HER LIVING ROOM WAS DEBORAH HOLLAND SHE WAS HOLDING A SUPER PRIZE CHECK WORTH OVER 12 MILLION DOLLARS, HELEN SCREAMED, BUT THAN DEBORAH MOVED FARTHER AND FARTHER AWAY FROM HER…
SUDDENLY BILLIONS AND BILLONS OF DOLLARS FEEL ONTOP OF HELEN SHE LAUGHGED WITH DELIGHT UNTIL HER HOUSE EXPLODED..
HELEN WENT FLYING INTO ANOTHER NEIGHBORHOOD AND LANDED ON THE STEPS OF PCH..
SHE ASKED TODD SLOAN, “IS THIS THE FINAL WEEK FOR ENTERING?”
TODD REPLIED, “YES HELEN. TOMORROW IS THE FINAL DAY.”
HELEN SCREAMED, “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

THE NEXT MORNING HELEN WOKE UP AND WONDERED WHY THERE WAS NO HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL ON THE FLOOR
INSTEAD THERE WAS A ONE DOLLAR BILL IN HER HAND. SHE GOT UP AND FOLLOWED ALL THE ONE DOLLARS TO THE KITCHEN AND THAN HER LIVING ROOM, AND STARTED LAUGHING TO HERSELF, SHE SAD ALOUD, “BECAUSE YOU SPENT THE MILLION FOR LIFE ALL IN ONE WEEK, IT’S NO WONDER YOU’RE HAVING NIGHTMARES!”

SUDDENLY A HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL FELL FROM THE CEILING, SHE WONDERED ALOUD, “NOW WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?”

SUDDENLY HER DOORBELL RANG…

HELEN JUMPED OUT OF BED AND RAN TO THE DOOR. IT WAS THE PRIZE PATROL AND THEY INFORMED HER SHE JUST WON A MILLION FOR LIFE.
HELEN FAINTED AND WHEN SHE AWOKE SHE SAID.. “PLEASE TOOD, REMIND ME NOT TO SPEND IT ALL IN ONE WEEK, EVER AGAIN!”

TOOD LOOKED AT HER AND SAID TO THE CAMERA CREW, “WE GET ALL KINDS OF RESPONSES FROM PEOPLE WHEN THEIR IN SHOCK FROM WINNING THE MILLION!”

THE END
