Hey Prize Patrol: What’s In That Suitcase?

On a recent Prize Patrol trip, I was often asked what was in my suitcase.

Capital One’s advertising slogan is “What’s in your wallet?”  Well, for me, the week of November 28th was when everyone I saw yelled “What’s in your suitcase?”  That’s because I was jetting from Tampa to Cincinnati to Newark to Dallas to Houston and home again pulling my wheelie-suitcase with a big, bright Prize Patrol logo on it.  Even if Danielle, Todd and I were not dressed “as seen on TV” in our blue-blazer uniforms, everyone in airports, on airplanes and in hotels knew who we were and what we were up to.  “Are you coming to my house?” they cried.

You know the TSA personnel at airport security who are usually as stone-faced as the guards at Buckingham Palace?  Well, even they lost their composure as they screened our baggage – probably hoping that we were there to surprise them with thousands or millions of dollars.  Sadly we had to tell them we were on our way to deliver a prize to someone else or that we had just changed the life of someone nearby and were on to the next award.  “But,” I advised them, “you could be a winner too if you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

The universal reaction from far too many people in these situations was, “Gee, I never thought the PCH Prize Patrol was real!”  Imagine!  After all these years of showing actual “winning moments” on TV and appearing on national talk shows I couldn’t believe the amount of skepticism there is out there!

“We are absolutely real,” we assured them.  “See this?” I said referring to the oversized packages wrapped in brown paper that we were carrying.  “These are Big Checks for the lucky Publishers Clearing House Sweepstake winners.”

“Oh Wow!” they replied.  “How do I get in on this?”

“Just go enter the PCH Sweepstakes online at pch.com,” I said.  “It’s as simple as that.”

Chances are that if you are a regular PCH Blog reader you know how easy it is to enter our fabulous sweepstakes.  True, we just awarded a Mega Prize of $1 Million plus $5000 a week for life to Leroy Faulks Sr. of New Jersey.  But there are lots more prizes to win at Publishers Clearing House – prizes worth up to $10 Million!  And our rules allow you to go online to pch.com and enter our sweepstakes every day giving you more chances to win.

After all that traveling I’m glad to be home.  But, as always, I’m looking forward to another Prize Patrol trip. If you enter now and are lucky, our next destination could be your front door.

Wishing you the best of luck.

Dave Sayer

Prize Patrol Ambassador

I wise your next destination could be my front door in Oregon.
I always follow your rules by enter your sweepstakes everyday and hoping I would meet yous to deliver a prize to change my life on to the next award.
In the past,I did several thing such as were to spent money for sweepstakes, spent of $300.00 for lotteries contacted by phone,paid $1,000.00 for Grant membership,and I lose money of $3,000.00 for hire Agency did re-financial for Home Affordable
Modification Programs(HAMP)for me.
And also my home under foreclosure but I tried to keep it by signature agreement to make a payment plan.
Currently,I got laid one job off. Even if I have many good reasons at work but I still have no chance to get hire.
My husband he has been unemployment for Two year,he has a hard time to fine a job.
I’ve had so much disappoint in my life.
So only PCH Sweepstakes that I enter to play and pray God to make me felling better.
I hope to win so I would keep my house!

Only PCH Blog that I can share my problem issue.

Hey Dave,
I don’t know how you can fit everything in there, wow! I would need about three of those:-)
So is there going to be a Feb 1 million prize or do we have to wait until Feb 2015……..if there is going to be a Feb 2012 1 million prize, how do we enter that? I have been doing the 10 million one but that’s a long way off and I was hoping to enter daily for the one coming up…….
Thanks for these opportunities! It’s fun to enter and check out the website and read the blogs…

My question to you is: do you ever come to Hawaii?

It sounds like a fun job, but I am sure it is hard to go on vacation with out someone stopping you and asking where you are going.

Dave you are the face of PCH and I hope one day I will meet you when you come to my house with the PCH prize patrol with a big winners check for me!

I hope you all at PCH have a wonderful Holiday!!!!

Hello and Happy Holidays to the pch staff!

I have been playing with you guys approximately three years now and I’ve played and prayed with hopes of winning one day soon. I allowed this last 1 million dollar venture to get the best of me and decided I no longer wanted to play anymore. however, determination and belief in a higher power won’t allow me to give up. Just like other stories I’ve read I am also in this economic crunch that sometimes has my head hanging lowwwwww…however, I believe and just know someday I will win too!

Keep it up….I look forward to seeing your faces on my doorstep soon.

again…
Happy Holidays!!!!!

quick question….What happens when you’re receiving mail promotions from you guys and you win but you never receive any other information about that winning. (Example) the bingo cards.. (i’ve won serveral entries and never received the monies for that winning)

Merry Christmas Dave

Don’t you think Elwoo, Indiana would be a nice place to visit next time? That’s where I live. Elwood is a very small town. JUST THINK, what would it be like for the Prize Patrol to stop at a house (primarily my house) in a town with fewer than 10,000 people! What an opportunity for the both of us. See you real soon!

Please note that there will be many prizes given out before 2015, and sneak peek drawings could cause the giveaway to end early as well if a winner is drawn. The next Super Prize giveaway will be in February, 2012! It will be a special early look for a $1,000,000.00 A Year For Life winner with a guaranteed prize of $1,000,000.00!

Hello PCH, I have not been able to access the step 1 of the 10 million dollar sweepstakes, It will only let me play for the 10,000.00 dollars for the past 3 days. I hope all is okay with your server. Let me know if I have to do something different to start to play PCH again? I LOVE playing every day and it feels weird to me, because I can not play.

On a other note: Congratulations to Michelle on her wedding, I am so very excited for her!!!

Happy Holidays to all!!!

How seasons would it be to win. I’m a retired veteran and bills don’t get paid with just been a veteran. Now that u don’t serve they forget bout u and a good job is really hard to find. It would be really nice if mr. Sayer ever show up to my town in albany, ky they problaly don’t do that but I pray god everyday to get a chance like this plus I play everyday to raise my chances. If I ever won I would donate to all those veterans who are in the same situation as I am. Thanks pch for listening to my thought.

I am totally convinced I will never be the winner of the ‘Million dollars for life’. I have read all the comments and feel like these people are part of my family. Everyone around me is suffering from the economic situation. We have the highest unemployment in the nation, the highest home foreclosures, the greatest number of homeless and more people moving in thinking they are going to find heaven here.
