Check Out This Check-Out Story

I was finishing shopping at our local supermarket the other day, and as the check-out lady started scanning my items she looked up and exclaimed “My gosh!  You know who you look like?”

I said “No. Who?” – expecting her to mention my twin brother who actually lives in the same town and shops in the same market.

She shook her head.  “You look just like Dave Sayer – you know, from Publishers Clearing House.”

Her response startled me because I am rarely recognized unless I’m in my Prize Patrol blazer carrying roses, balloons and a Big Check worth thousands, even millions of dollars.

“Well, yes, I am Dave Sayer.”  I showed her my driver’s license to prove it.

Her mouth fell open.  “I knew it!” she cried. “I see your picture all the time!  Online!  I enter every day!”

“You are so smart” I replied. “Most winners I surprise play our sweepstakes all the time too.  And wow!  Just think – if you win I won’t have to go far from home!”

She was thrilled: first — because standing right there in-person was a real Prize Patrol’er she’d seen online and on TV; and second — for all the encouragement I gave her.

There are two morals to this story: (1) The Prize Patrol is real; there’s absolutely nothing fake or staged in our TV commercials.  And (2)  You should enter the PCH Sweepstakes every chance you get – which is every day at pch.com, Search & Win, PCH Games and more.

I wish YOU – and also the smart lady at the check-out counter – the very best of luck.   I’m looking forward to our next Big Check delivery – wherever it is, near or far.

  2. I was going in a convience store a little over a month ago and you were coming out.You held the door open for me and i thanked you.Todd and Launa were in the store and Launa was waiting to check out.I thought to myself wow they are in this town where i live.Maybe i really do have a chance.

  3. I did not know that you have a twin brother, Dave! 🙂 Twins, both identical and fraternal, run in my family too! 🙂

  4. I am a believer because I had a neighbor win. It has been about 25 years ago. It was in Indiana in Greene County. I have a problem. I opened my PCH App and it says for me to get the new App but I can’t find it. HELP! WHAT CAN I DO????

  5. I received an email from a David in PCH who said that I won $10,000 dollars for life. I’ve been playing All the games at PCH site and in over 30 yrs I’ve yet to win anything. I wish that before August 2017 ends that I could be a winner of at least a couple of thousand dollars ($5,000).

  6. This IS a great story Dave and very encouraging! Being a twin myself out of 3 sets in my family, with some single siblings in between, I know I will be just as gracious as you when I’m not just one of the twins, but Kathi, the one who won PCH. :)) One of the many reasons it means so much to me. Thanks for sharing!~~
