Prize Patrol Meet and Greet Recap!

There’s no doubt that Mall of America® is always crowded, but on January 20th, the crowd stopped to look at the Rotunda where the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol was greeting fans, taking pictures, and giving away hourly prizes.  If you keep up with Publishers Clearing House on the PCH Fan Page and on the PCHWinningWays Twitter page, then you know that PCH gave out over $7,000.00 in prizes LIVE at Mall of America® on Friday, January 20th!  But unless you had your eyes glued to PCH’s first ever Live Stream hosted on the PCH Fan Page, you may not have caught everything.  So let me fill you in on some of the things you may have missed.

The Prize Patrol at Mall of America®

We wanted to make sure that anyone who stopped by the Prize Patrol event would have a LOT of fun, so we set up several activities for our visitors at Mall of America®.  At Publishers Clearing House, it’s all about winning, so we started the fun off with a chance to enter to win $1,000,000.00 A Year For Life.  We had 10 computers set up where fans could submit an entry for a chance to win a $1,000,000.00 A Year For Life SuperPrize on February 29th!  But the winning opportunities didn’t stop there.  Those who visited us at Mall of America® also got chances to win hourly cash prizes!   One winner was drawn randomly every hour, and new entries were collected after each win to ensure that everyone had an equal opportunity to win.  Seeing the look on the winners’ faces was so heartwarming!

Each visitor who stopped by the Rotunda at Mall of America® on Friday had the chance to meet the famous PCH Prize Patrol and take a photo with them.  Fans held a Big Check and posed in front of the Prize Patrol van.  From there, fans were given the opportunity to participate in a fun video interview activity – some of the footage may be featured in a future PCH commercial! Because we knew that not everyone could win a cash prize, we had some other Prize Patrol goodies on hand like t-shirts and pens.

Danielle putting entries into the drum!

Danielle Lam of the Prize Patrol Elite team was overjoyed at the success of this event. She said “It was such a pleasure getting to meet the PCH fans in person and get to know them face to face – I definitely made new friends that day!  One of MY Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol fans showed up and was even a $100 hourly winner – how cool is that!!!”

We hope that you enjoyed this rare Live Prize Patrol Event.  I know I did!  I even got to meet one of our avid blog readers in person and signed my first autograph!  Danielle introduced me on the Live Feed and I got to wave to my Fan Page friends who were watching. Leave a comment and let me know how YOU enjoyed the event!

Victoria at PCH

If the Prize Patrol come visit my state, it would be wonderful! So my relatives they will believe that is real no doubt. And also some people ,they will know what does the Publisher Clearing House Sweepstakes do for? (Most workers at Nike company has never knew about that).
Some my relatives they don’t know I enter to play nor interested, that would be fine but some of them knew and used to entered, finally they were quick and did not believed anymore.
So I’ve had try again and again until I’ll get success and then I’ll introduce them how to enters; Too many entries web page; To increase knowledge from PCHtips; Get to know PCHfans; and Enjoy Communication with PCHblog!
I having a lot of fun with PCH company. I had no longer watching on lines’ movies any more.
Currently, I am taking care my grandma in 24hrs and taking time for PCH Sweepstakes that good enough for me so I’ve no time to enjoy watching American or Asians’ movies anymore!

I was having so much fun, I wanted to stay the whole day. I felt a little pushy when I was practically making shy people take a picture but I knew they would always remember that moment. You guys are so welcoming and kind.

I love surprising people in small ways, random acts of kindness but watching you change people’s lives in a big way brings tears to my eyes. The news is full of doom and gloom, Hanging out on PCH helps me forget about all the bad and remember the good.
Cheers to PCH!!!!!!! And cheers to all the other blog readers!!!

    Hi Mrs. R.S.,

    Thank you so much for coming. It was great to be able to put a face to the name, and I’m sure you feel the same way! I’m hoping that we’ll do more of these events in the future. I think it’s fair to say that everyone really enjoyed themselves.

Hi Victoria, I caught most of the Live Stream, but I missed some to, like you waving. Oh well, if you guys are going to do it again…maybe next time. I doubt you’ll ever come to ours, about 20 stores, I’ve actually walked around in it, 3 times in 15 minutes. When I was a teen, our mall was across from the middle school, guess where I was, it had 3 floors(but I was also on the honor roll at the time)HaHa! Great Job, Thank You!
