The Prize Patrol Is Getting Ready To Change Someone’s Life Forever!

The time has come for the Prize Patrol to get on the road and surprise our newest millionaire with that BIG PCH check!  The Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes winner has been selected and now it’s time for the Prize Patrol to be dispatched.  But what exactly does that mean?  Well, I’d like to give you a special look into what it takes for the Prize Patrol to prepare for that life changing winning moment.

Step 1 – Book those flights! Since there is not much time from when the winner is selected to when we need to be on the road, our first priority is to book the flights to make sure we can get to the lucky sweepstakes winner.  Once our seats have been reserved (personally I try to get the window seat to see the beautiful views) it is time to plan transportation in the state we are arriving.

Step 2: Book the rental Prize Patrol Van! We have used all different brands/colors/size Prize Patrol Vans (even a Prize Patrol dog sled in Alaska!).  We only have a few criteria: GPS to find the winner’s house and of course the van has to be large enough to fit the Prize Patrol sign and that BIG check!

Step 3: Order the flowers! What kind of winning moment would it be if the Prize Patrol showed up at your door without those beautiful red roses?  The Prize Patrol researches what flower shops are close to the winner’s house.  The rest is simple, order a dozen and a half red roses, presentation style – but the florist can’t know it’s the Prize Patrol calling!

Final Step: Pack! Usually packing for a trip or vacation can be a daunting task, but not THIS type of trip.  The Prize Patrol loves gathering all the necessary gear for the road.  First, of course, the BIG PCH check and the REAL check!  We also gather paperwork for the winner, Prize Patrol pens, champagne, balloons to fill, directions, a camera and the signature Prize Patrol blue blazers.

Now it’s time for research.  We frequently get asked, “what happens if the winner isn’t home?”  (this happens more often than you may realize).  In order to prepare for those unfortunate situations, we like to do as much research about the winner before traveling as possible.  For example, we were able to find our $20,000 winner Pat Ticknor by finding out where she worked.  As you know, the Prize Patrol will do anything it takes to find the lucky PCH Sweepstakes winner and deliver that BIG check, even if it means going to their work place!

So now it’s time…here we go!  Hopefully all this planning will come in handy and we can surprise our newest millionaire without a hitch!  Wish us luck and keep entering the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes so maybe you could get your own surprise at home!  There are so many ways to enter and it’s as simple as a click of your mouse.  Enter today at, PCH Search & Win, PCH Lotto…the Prize Patrol would love to be dispatched to your house next!

    I’m wondering if you guys do find the winner please god let it be me what time would you guys go to the winners home?

  4. I have been a big supporter of PCH for 19 years. For the first time ,I feel lucky and hope that I can win . We had to make a trip to see our family in upstate New York and will not be back home on the 18th . I cannot help it that I will not be home . I have made it a point to be home on almost all other times when the PCH staff arrived , but the never have come to my house , What will happen if I am not there ? Will I loose out on the prize ,if I win , but will not be able to be home on the 18th of October ?
    I have worked so hard for PCH , even harder this time ,to win . If I am a winner, will I be disqualified ? I will not be home to receive the blue envelope that tells me I have to call .Thank you . I am feeling that I will be loosing any hope of ever winning anythi
