Congratulations to This Year’s Graduating Class From the Prize Patrol


I have not been asked to deliver a commencement address to a high school or college graduating class; but if I was given that honor I would say “CONGRATULATIONS!  Your dedication and intelligence has earned you a diploma!  Now, carry on – applying those qualities to your chosen pursuit.  God bless you, and good luck!”

Come to think of it, that short address contains words I have spoken hundreds of times – to prize winners and would-be winners of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

In the seconds after our Prize Patrol presents roses, balloons and a Big Check worth thousands or millions of dollars to a lucky PCH Sweepstakes winner, I say “Congratulations!  You were smart and persistent, and — look! — it paid off!”

When I talk to the hundreds of people I meet who WANT to win, I urge them to use their intelligence and stick-to-it-iveness and “Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”  Then I add, “Don’t be a dummy and fail to enter – or you will lose for sure.  And don’t be discouraged if you don’t win on the first try.  Be persistent!  Enter every day – as our online rules allow.”

Finally, I add “Good luck!” – because I know that luck plays a part.  But, again, if you don’t enter the PCH sweepstakes you cannot possibly win.

Now – to all of you in this year’s graduating class: CONGRATULATIONS!  I know that the employment outlook is discouraging — even for some of you who finished near the top of your graduating class.  I wish we could wave a magic wand and paint a rosy picture of opportunity.  That is not within our power; but I CAN urge you to “Be smart, be persistent, be optimistic, and enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes at once. You could be a winner!”  A simple click on this link to pch.com will get you started.

Good luck … and hopeful Congratulations!

Dave Sayer

PCH Prize Patrol Ambassador

For Anyone who Dream Bigger than They Can Ever Imagine, well Imaging Opening your Front Door to Congratulatory Roses with a 100% Champagne Bottle sealed with a Special One of its kind PCH Vintage Lable presented alongside a BIG CHECK with my Name On it Would be Wonderful…taking a good look at this photo because mr. Dave Sayer will Absolutely be the Person Announcing the winner with a Check. so ANYONE is Yet to be Awarded this Awesome Prize REWARD, but when it DO happens it will be BIG!

Dave, I applaud your commencement, especially the statement, “Don’t be a dummy and fail to enter – or you will lose for sure. And don’t be discouraged if you don’t win on the first try. Be persistent! Enter every day – as our online rules allow.”

I enter because I feel I will win one day. It’s not a matter of “if” but, “when.”

It’s funny you mentioned, “…employment outlook is discouraging…” because it was just announced on the news yesterday that my place of employment will be closing in 90 days. And, it was announced that my son’s school will also be closing for good this summer.

Fortunately, ‘they say’ all the employees will be placed through out the Clinic’s other facilities. I have my fingers crossed. Unfortunately, I don’t know where I will be sent or how far. Nor do I know in what school my son will be placed.

It’s ironic my son and I are in the same boat at the same time, and will find out our fate around the same time. It brings a whole new meaning to “like father like son.”

I wont be discouraged and I will be persistent in at least making sure my son is placed in a school that has high marks on education.

      Dear PCH,
      I just got one of the emails from you that said I needed to respond. Well… I did. I always respond as soon as I get them. On memorial day, you said no numbers were returned when I know I returned mine. I just want to make sure you got it.

      [REPLY TO THIS POST]
        PCH Customer Service said...

        Hi Crystal,

        Customer Service does not keep a record of all sweepstakes entries received. If you were able to input and complete all information requested in your entries and you have not entered more than once a day, please be assured that your entries have been accepted.

        Each entry you submit to us is assigned a SuperPrize Number once it reaches our headquarters. When we hold an Early Look draw (such as the one we held on Memorial Day), a random SuperPrize number is drawn and, if an entry was timely submitted and has the SuperPrize Number that matches the winning number, we will have an early winner. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

        In the case of the Memorial Day draw, no matching winning number was returned, so there was no winner at that time. Many SuperPrize Numbers were indeed returned (as many people entered the sweepstakes), but a matching winning number was not among them.

        Hope this helps! :)

        Regards,
        Rebecca @ PCH

I Congradualte all of the Graduates at Minisink HS here in the SouthCenterville area of Greenville NY. I wish that now I had a plan when I graduated back in January. 1982. I had nothing except a HS Diploma. Now I am here on My computer playing PCH. I am hope that I am able to ACHIEVE something out of it, like our DREAM, GOAL & PLAN, for our LIVES. It is so hard now, not having a JOB & not being able to find one. I do not like living here in a Double Wide Trailer, especially in a Trailer Park, where everyone knows your business. We need to live in a nice Quiet AREA, where we can come and go without anyone watching us. This is my WISH, & ALSO TO WIN EITHER $5,000.00 OR 10,000.00 AWEEK FOR LIFE. I WILL TAKE & EXCEPT EITHER ONE. I am playing this 24/7 days aweek, I cannot even go to a store, for I am living on FoodStamps at $200 a month. That does not even put any money in my POCKET. I do not even have a PENNIE TO MY NAME, not even money for GAS or Insurance. I have to ask my BoyFriend to pay it for us, where it is in my name. THANKYOU, FROM YOUR BIG FAN & FRIEND marilynh89

Congratulations to GRADUATES EVERYWHERE and at EVERY LEVEL!! Job well done, you finished your educayion, but you are just beginning to make your life.
Please make the most of it. Don’t wait for things to happen because life does not work this way. YOU MUST TAKE the ACTION required, and then some, to make the most of what you expect out of life. This does certainly include entering the PCH SWEEPSTAKES, EVERYDAY.

When you need to shop, remember to stop in at SHOPandWIN.com where not only do you get great savings, you again have the opportunity to WIN BIG, whether you make a purchase or not.

I do hope people ARE making purchases of some really great items amd magazines , the store site could not possibly continue. I am not saying spend money, just to be spending, I AM SAYING whe you NEED to buy a gift for someone or are looking for something for yourself, GIVE SHOPandWIN an opportuity to surprise with their large variety of itmes.

HAPPY GRADUATION EVERYONE and I WISH YOU ALL a HAPPILY EVER AFTER.

This is the response to clicking on the $25K entry. Nothing happens. Rather disappointing actually. If you folks actually care about computer issues, this must be causing you to tear your hair out. Computer entries haven’t worked right in weeks. By the way, your “Contact us” page has no provision for discussing computer entry issues. That’s why I’m using the blog.

I have entered the PCH sweepsteaks many times and have come close…I think. I sent in many processing fees but did not win. My husband will no longer allow me to send in these fees when we are having difficulty paying our bills. It would be nice if I could pay the fee after I win.

Dear Mr. Dave Sayer, It sure would be nice if I was the 1 person that you will be looking for on August 31ST, 2011. You see I wrote an application out for a PCA JOB for Oveido Florida. If I end up getting that job I would have to have all of my stuff shipped down their & it would cost me alot of money. So then I would be able to use the winnings, If I win, & I would also be able to buy a nice house. It is very hard here in Orange County NY to find a Job. I was told that they pay more money down there then they do here. It would be nice if you came on to FaceBook to be my friend, would you except the offer if I gave it to you. Thanks, I hope to here from you soon. THANKYOU, FROM YOUR BIG FAN & FRIEND marilynhadey28

Hi Pch !
I wish to Congraculate my daughter who was a Graduate student from high school this year and accepted to DSU, but could not find the scholarship or the financial Aid to continue her ambitions of becoming a Nurse in the field on Oncology- cancer nurse. We all pray everyday for her to get a miracle of getting financial Aid or scholarship, and I hope You-PCH is her answer to win this Scholarship through me the parent since she does not play sweepstakes. I have being playing sweepstakes for over 4 vears all in vain. but still hope that One day God will hear our prayers.Thanks in advance and let God bless everybody who is struggling like Me!
