BIG SURPRISES ARE OUR SPECIALTY

Big Surprises

Recently I pulled off a giant surprise for my wife as she observed what some would call a “significant” birthday – you know the kind that comes around every few years and which calls for a special celebration.  Children, grandchildren and a sister arrived in stages quite unexpectedly from faraway places.  My wife was, as they say, “blown away” and was reduced to tears as one loved one after another came through the front door.  For weeks ahead she had made me promise there would be no special observance; but I simply could not let the occasion pass uncelebrated.  That’s because, as you probably know by now, I like surprising people.  I’ve been doing that for over 25 years – as head of the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol.

Weddings, new babies, graduations and major anniversaries are, of course, life events that are truly memorable.  But to that list of occasions some particularly lucky persons would add another: the thrill of “the winning moment” – when the PCH Prize Patrol knocked on their door and announced “You are a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”  Aside from the shock of unexpected visitors carrying balloons, roses and cameras, there’s the Big Check – worth thousands, even millions of dollars that can be really life-changing.

I have been an in-person witness to hundreds of “PCH winning moments” and, believe me, they are mighty memorable.  Even though — being a PCH’er — I’m not eligible to win a prize, I feel like a winner every time.  I wish every one of you PCH Blog readers could experience the thrill.

How about you?  Would you like to be a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes?  It’s possible you know.  Enter now at pch.com. And the great thing is our rules allow you to return and enter every day giving you more chances to win.

Who knows?  The next person that the PCH Prize Patrol surprises with a Big Check could be YOU!

Wishing you the best of luck.

I WOULD LOVE IF I COULD BE SURPRISED AS A WINNER, BUT IT LOOKS ALL THE TIME LIKE IT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN. FOR ALL THE WINNERS THAT THE MACHINE ALWAYS PICKS IS ALL OUT OF STATER. DO YOU ALL THINK THAT I COULD BECOME A WINNER BEFORE CHRISTMAS, OR SHOULD I NOT EVEN GET MY HOPE UP. LIKE I HAD SAID, WE HAD LOST OUR HOME TO A FIRE LASTYEAR ON MAY 18TH, 2012 IT WAS ON A FRIDAYNIGHT. IF YOU ALL WOULD JUST LOOK AT THE FIRE ON THE COMPUTER YOU WILL SEE THAT I AM TELLING THE TRUTH. WE THEN HAD TO STAY IN A SUPER8 MOTEL FOR 4 MONTHS. FIANLLY ON SEPT. 21 OF LAST YEAR WE WERE ABLE TO MOVE INTO OUR NEW HOME. ALL OF THE FURNITURE THAT WE HAVE IS ALL USED, WAS EITHER DONATED OR WE HAD TO GO TO AN AUCTION TO GET IT. PLEASE I WOULD LOVE TO WIN, SO WE CAN GET RID OF ALL THE USED FURNITURE & FINALLY PURCHASE NEW. I FEEL NEW HOME, NEW FURNITURE. THANKYOU

Hi! Okay Dave, now I see how she puts up with you! What a gift! And a lot of thought and planning! I think that’s wonderful! Special surprises are always remembered, and being the one who always does it away from home, I’m glad to see it at “your home”. You’re married to one special lady. Please tell her I said Happy Birthday!! :)

It surprises me on the comments I read all I read is
Things like I don’t believe I’ll ever win, I lost everything
All you really need is to keep entering someone will win
Just hope that their giving to those who are in desperate need for someone to care. John

If I win, would it be too much to ask the prizepatrol to bring a dysen vacuum along with them. I have applied a few million token for entries just for the dysen ball vacuum, and I am not giving up until I win one too, just to let all you folk’s know!!! LOL
