What Does The Prize Patrol Do When Winner Isn’t Home?

PrizePatrol

Imagine this…
The big SuperPrize winner is selected…the Prize Patrol travel plans are finalized…the flight takes off without a delay…the roses are picked up without a hitch…EVERYTHING is going exactly according to plan…and THEN, the big moment…the Prize Patrol excitedly runs up to the winner’s door…rings the bell…and NO ONE IS HOME!

WHAT DO THEY DO?

It’s a question we get asked ALL THE TIME. What DOES the Prize Patrol do if the winner isn’t home?

Have YOU ever wondered about this? Well, I’m here to tell you the answer. And if you think I’m going to say “they go give the prize to someone else” or even worse, “they don’t give away the prize at all” – THINK AGAIN! The winner not being home is something that happens ALL THE TIME when the Prize Patrol travels the country awarding Big Checks, and I can promise you, our winners ALWAYS get the money.

That’s right! Whether they have to wait for hours outside the winner’s home OR enlist the help of some friendly neighbors OR even hunt them down (at work, the supermarket or local neighborhood spot), the Prize Patrol does WHATEVER they need to deliver that Big Check!

So exactly how long has the Prize Patrol waited for a winner to come home? To find this out, I checked in with Danielle Lam, Prize Patrol Elite. And boy did she have A LOT of funny stories!

The first was about a Prize Patrol trip that didn’t go exactly as planned — the delivery to our $1 Million winner Rory Bellamy from Cleveland, Ohio. At the start, everything was going very smoothly. So smooth that Danielle even told Dave Sayer and Todd Sloane that “this is one of the smoothest running Prize Patrol trip’s I’ve ever done!”. Unfortunately, she had spoken too soon!

Prize Patrol with Rory Bellamy

Because when the Prize Patrol showed up at Rory’s house, he was not home! Quickly, they jumped into action, thinking of a Plan B to find Mr. Bellamy. After asking a neighbor for help, it turned out that Rory was out for the day working as a house painter and wouldn’t be returning until 3:00 PM! 5 hours later, a family member of Rory’s who lived across the street was able to call his cell phone and trick him into coming home ASAP to check on something at her house. Total Prize Patrol wait time: 6 HOURS! WOW!

Sometimes, instead of waiting, the Prize Patrol relies on quick thinking. That’s exactly what happened when Danielle was on the road to present a Big Check for $20,000 to Lisa Tangeman in Daytona, Florida. Surprise, surprise, Lisa was not home when they pulled up in the van. Luckily, Danielle came up with the idea of getting in touch with one of Lisa’s family members, her husband Mark.

Mark convinced Lisa that she needed to return home because their new lawn mower was being delivered. Seeming like a completely harmless request, Lisa headed home where she was surprised by Danielle — and that $20,000 Big Check! Her reaction was a perfect mix of pure joy and disbelief, exactly what we hope for when presenting a winner with their check.

So folks, those are just 2 examples of what the Prize Patrol can do if the winner isn’t home. The important thing to remember is there is NOTHING to worry about. If you’re our big winner, you will DEFINITELY get your money — NO EXCEPTIONS!

But remember, first you have to enter for your chance to win! Then who knows…the Prize Patrol could be knocking on YOUR door next!

    IF THE DAY WOULD COME FOR THE Prize Patrol could show up at your doorstep with champagne, roses, balloons and a “Big Check.” It’s FREE. THEN MY MIRACLE WOULD HAPPEN TO MAKE THE STAND TO SAVE MY CHILDREN FROM ANY MORE WRONG THAT HAS BEEN DONE BY THE COLLUSION OF THE SYSTEM. THINGS WOULD NOT OF WENT THE WAY IT DID. DUE TO THE BRAIN AND SPINAL TRAUMA IT HAS HINDER ME FROM DOING SO! IT’S BEEN THREE YEARS AND JUST NOT REALIZING HOW MUCH I LOST DO TO THE INJURY. With the variety of SuperPrize’s as blessings from PCH. Thank You for the immense amount of brain stimulation.

    I can’t understand why my wife is not as excited about winning. I am trying to decide what we will do first when the money starts rolling in. It would be such a change for us both, and it would change a lot of our day to day routines. I would find a way to start a foundation to help people after we die and work on that while we traveled around in a comfortable motor home. I would have satellite internet that could be used while going down the interstate and we would have a driver so both of us could really see the country. I just know we are going to win because of the dreams that have started to make me want to stay in bed longer, or until I get a stopping point in my dream.

    My doorbell is broken and my neighbor as well. I guess pch waits for me to get home or knocks on my window. I have been praying for pch for a very long time. I know God is going to provide

      You can get a wireless doorbell at Lowes real cheap and install it yourself. Then they would ring your bell.

    When I mentioned that the prize was going to make a visit, my dentist said “oh they won’t come to see you”. I sure wish I could prove him wrong.
    With God, all things are possible.
