PCH Prize Patrol – Behind The Scenes Bloopers!

Being a member of the PCH Prize Patrol Elite team truly is the most exciting and rewarding experience.  My blog followers and PCH Fans on Facebook  always comment on how this must be the best job in the world…and to me, I really believe it is!  What could be better than traveling around the country to surprise PCH Sweepstakes winners with balloons, flowers, champagne and that BIG PCH check!?

After a sweepstakes giveaway, fans love watching the exciting winning moments on PCHTV.com.  But things don’t always run as smoothly as they appear in those minute-long clips.  More times than not, the PCH Prize Patrol arrive at the sweepstakes winner’s door just to realize that nobody is home!  That is when we have to be creative and find out where the winner could be.  Usually our first tactic is to knock on a neighbor’s door to see if they know where the winner is or where they work.  If that fails, we basically just wait around the sweepstakes winner’s house in hopes they will return home soon.  Now those idle hours may seem like a bore to some, but to the PCH Prize Patrol it just adds to the PCH Winning Moment excitement!

With all that time spent waiting, the PCH Prize Patrol has plenty of time to enjoy ourselves, and along the way we have made some humorous “bloopers”.  Here is a behind the scenes look at some of the “bloopers” the PCH Prize Patrol haves experienced on the road… and as you can see, we are still having a blast!

Prize Patrol “Blooper” Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ROIAN35301g

When the $10,000 St. Patrick’s Day winner Veronica Trombino from Fort Lauderdale was not home, we wandered the block in hopes of finding a neighbor with information – and along the way stumbled upon some entertaining experiences!  Our most recent $1 Million winner, Karen Anderson, also had the Prize Patrol playing the waiting game…and we had fun with it.  I guess that long day of waiting had us all a little tired since we couldn’t get the “Hip Hip Hooray” right.

I hope you have enjoyed this behind the scenes look at the PCH Prize Patrol on the road.  We truly love what we do, and as you can see, we have a great deal of fun doing it! Visit www.pch.com to enter today and the Prize Patrol could be knocking on your door next (or waiting for a few hours on your block, having a blast).

Morning Everyone! I pray that I win PCH because I’m just 18 and I have to pay this 483 electric bill :( in order for me to get my apartment. I pray to the Lord everyday to send a blessing down for me. $5000 a week for life will be the blessing that will be coming to me. I know that I’m only 18 and usually older or elderly people win stuff like this, but I’m going to be the first 18 (I think I am the first 18 year old to win this could of been others before me) to win PCH $5000 a week for life. I will use this money to pay this $483 bill, have enough money for an apartment I’m going to have to get in august, save up for a car, put money aside for college (Savannah State University), help out my dad with his small business, help my mom with her bills and the rest of my family and church family. A lot of people my age don’t know much about pch,even if they did they are not as determined as me to win.

for Many Americans, The Publisher’s Clearing House Prize Patrol is Something like the Easter Bunny or Santa Claus-a Nice fantasy, but few People really believe they’ll Catch a glimpse of Their famous White Van With the Huge Check Inside This August 31st But Actually Entering Daily does Makes the Prize Patrol Exist, and its Staffed by real People Whose jobs Center around Giving Away Life-Changing Prizes To Lucky Winner’s Hopefully Like Myself it Would Definitely be a Miracle to be Randomly Selected for their “Prize Patrol Blitz” which Awards 101 prizes Across the United State at the sametime So Awesome!

Hey, just wanted to say… thanks for all you do… the commercials, the blogs, the games, sweeps, Search/Win, Play/Win, products/magazines, I mean everything… all of us are experiencing difficulties one way or another (in these economic times and I am in that bunch, too… However, I find that I can thank God for your website and use it as an outlet for stress relief and fun to take things off my mind a bit… Don’t know when my blessing will come… I just know that it will COME!!! Whether God chooses to use PCH.com or not I am still grateful!!! Continue doing the great work you do!!! God bless you all!!!

BTW I HAVE A QUESTION..IF YOU PUT YOUR ENTRY USING THE MOBILE VERSION OF PCH AND DO IT ON THE PCH WEBSITE AS WELL, WILL THAT MAKE YOU INELGIBLE OF WINNING? IT SAID ON THE RULES MAKE ONE ENTRY A DAY. (I ask that because the actual website you, get other oppurtunities to win other pch sweepstakes after you entered in for $5,000 a week for life sweepstakes but on the mobile version you just put in your entry for $5000 a week for life and that’s all).

do you have search at least 25 times before you can when the prize of the day on pch search and win.

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

    Hi Cheryl,

    No, you do not need to search at least 25 times to have a chance to win. All it takes is a single search for a chance to win, however you can do up to 25 searches per day which will each provide you with an entry into our giveaways. You can search more than 25 times a day if you wish, but anything after your 25th search will not be counted as an entry.

    Each day PCH Search & Win’s prize program chooses a bunch of winning times (usually several per hour). The first person to search after a winning time wins the prize. If you were not the first person to search at this time, you would not be selected as the winner. The most recent winners are displayed in the scrolling banner on our homepage.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Rebecca @ PCH

I have another question: How do you know your entry number? Do I have one? If so where is it located?

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Parish,

    Once your entry is transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it will be assigned a SuperPrize Number. Your name and number is kept on file at headquarters until Giveaway end. We are sorry but Customer Service does not have access to that file.

Just like everyone else I am entering as much as I can…it would be such a blessing to have the Prize Patrol knock on my door. I know it’s a long shot – but I still enter everytime I get a chance – I would be so mad at myself if I didn’t and it ended up that I could have been the winner. I just pray that whomever DOES win is someone who really does need the money because it’s such a shame to think of how many people are in financially stressful situations and this could be such a life changing event! Thanks for all you folks at PCH do…one day I hope to meet you when you come to MY house!!! ;)

    PCH Staff said...

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It sounds like you have been the victim of a scam. The offer you’re describing did not come from Publishers Clearing House. Also, there is never a catch with entering or winning any PCH Sweepstakes. PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.
