How The PCH Prize Patrol Travels With The Big Check!

Danielle and Lucky

Hey PCH fans!

Have you ever wondered how the PCH Prize Patrol travels with that BIG Check to our winners? If you have, you’re in luck! I recently had the chance to catch up with PCH Prize Patrol Elite’s lovely Danielle Lam to talk about her experiences traveling with the Big Check! Let’s see what she had to say…

Christa: Hi Danielle! What I really want to know is…what’s it like traveling with the Big Check?

Danielle: It’s an experience, that’s for sure. The Big Check is…well…BIG!  Since we don’t “check” the check because we don’t want it to get ruined, we have to find ways to fit it on the plane. Most planes don’t have a large closet in the front so we have to squeeze it into funny places. Once in a while if there’s room on the plane, the Big Check even gets its own seat!

Christa: Where is the oddest place you’ve stored the Big Check on a plane?

Danielle: We’ve stored it in the flight attendants closet, behind the seats in the last row, and even next to our own seats covering the window! 

Christa: Have you ever not been able to bring the check with you?

Danielle: Nope! We always make it work. It wouldn’t be a Prize Patrol award without it!

Christa: Do you have any funny stories about traveling with the Big Check?

Danielle: I can’t tell you how many times we have gotten stopped at security and been questioned about “what’s in the brown envelope”? The look on the TSA agent’s faces when they find out what it is is priceless!

I hope you guys have learned some cool stuff about the behind the scenes journey of the famous PCH Big Check. Have no fear, the check is ALWAYS in great hands with the Prize Patrol Elite! Remember everyone, if you want to see the Big Check arrive at your door one day, keep entering to win at

    I have always wondered: when winner goes to the bank to deposit the check, do they really stamp it thru, or do you have the funds transfered electronically into their bank account an have the bank stamp the check paid in full???

    Funny to hear the” check” sometimes has it’s own seat :) It wouldn’t be the same without having you carrying the big check. That is the a part of PCH legacy. It was fun to read. Thanks for sharing. I pray you come to my house next !
