How Did Prize Patrol Clues & Hints Get Started?

Hi everyone, its Danielle Lam from the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol! If you are a fan of mine on Facebook, you most likely already know about the fun hints and Prize Patrol clues I host on my page before every prize award. If not, you’re missing out on a lot of fun! Actually, since the June 30th SuperPrize award is just a few days away, hints and clues are starting soon!  Be sure to check it out and follow along for the fun!

Some of you may be wondering how we came up with the idea of doing these clues! Well, when I first started my Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol Fan Page a few years ago, I always had PCH fans asking me about what it’s like to travel the country and deliver the Big Checks. Fans also loved hearing the latest and greatest news about where the Prize Patrol was headed. So I decided it would be fun to play a game and give fans clues about where the Prize Patrol is traveling on prize days – a fun spin on one of my favorite game shows as a kid “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego!” Now fans get SO excited for the hints and clues that we do it for every major award!

The idea was such a hit that we decided to use similar fun trivia questions for a brand new upcoming game on our PCH Fan Page. It’s called PCH Prize Pursuit, and if you’re a PCH fan, you’re going to LOVE this game. Fans will have the opportunity to answer fun trivia questions about different regions of the country, enter the Sweepstakes AND even have a chance to win instant prizes! Yup, that’s right, and did I mention that instant winners are going to be GUARANTEED daily? It’s SO much fun…I can’t wait for the game to start so you can all have a chance to play and even have a chance to win instant prizes!

Here’s a sneak peek of what PCH Prize Pursuit will look like!

Prize Pursuit Sneak Peak

So make sure to keep an eye out on the PCH Fan Page for the exciting new game PCH Prize Pursuit.  It’ll be launching on Monday, July 1st! To get you all in the mood for the new game…let’s try out a few fun trivia questions here on the PCH blog.  Once you figure out the answers, let us know in the comments below.  Ready….here it is!

Question #1:   Prize Pursuit East Coast

Question #2:   Prize Pursuit West Coast

Here’s a tip: You can use PCHSearch&Win to help you find the answer…AND enter the big PCH sweepstakes when you search!  That’s what I call a win-win situation!

I love the hints and clues, a few times I had almost heart failure but –Alas it was never my state. It is fun the 1st day of clues because the states get down to a few, then you know it is time to be happy for someone else instead of waiting for the prize day… just wish my comment went though for the PCH Pen..but again never the winner..Oh well such is life! *smile* Best Wishes to the winner! I hate this texting stuff!

I have always been excited about winning a PCH win for life mega Prize that mom tells to get out of fantasy land. But Sometimes I turn into a Charlie Brown feeling ” Completely Hopeless” that I will never win but I can accept it because I never gave up on my dream, my wish, and my hope. Congratulations to the winner and their family on June 30th. Good Luck ♣ PCH FANS

Hello, I just wrote a strongly worded comment on another page when I saw that the date had been changed. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but this is the 3rd time it has been extended. Your Patrol Van has been driving down my street now for 2 years. Even NBC announced that it would be broadcasted on June 30, 2013 and that’s the first time I have ever caught it said on T.V.
Please tell me you are holding it to that date.

hi there all at pch I just want to ask this question to the prize patrol that do they know where all those entries are registered because if Danielle or dave are excited to award the next prize winner I just need to tell them first to ask pch technical assistance team who took my call on 13th june 2013 at around 2.30 pm and registered my complain that for more than 2 months on facebook spin the loot wheel and edwins hatch is not working and it sees it was not working at your side, so how do I get more entries and the bad part is that promotion alone is not enough you need to show transparency as I do regularly visit pch to register for as many sweepstakes as possible I even do like all your ads but sorry to say I am disappointed .People have huge hopes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One more time; Una mas: WhatbWATTS – PCH, as a whole; DLam as a specific!

Looks fun, and I want to learn & play…But ALAS! I do not own a spot, nor play on Facebook. Do not know how to change that. Kinda wish not to.

But I think following y’all sounds like a kick! Will you guide me , or ask someone to guide me…what do I do?

Very truly yours, and with immense respect,

responding to previous blog question.

What is a special early look?

Answer:

when contest department make sure all of there eligible numbers or loaded into publisher clearing house winning numbers generator. Then one winning number is randomly selected publisher clearing house officials check to see if there is a matching number on timely returned entries. is there is publisher clearing house, reward top prize event. If not publisher clearing house enter it into a second chance drawing toward a small base prize in accordance to officials rules.
