A Secure Pack Gets You Access To Winning!

Publishers Clearing House secure packs with special activation codes are in the mail.
Be on the lookout for yours!

Get ready! A Publishers Clearing House Secure Pack with your name on it could be in the mail as early as today! And that’s important because this time-sensitive piece of mail gets you access to winning FAST CASH!

Inside the secure pack is an opportunity to enter to win the “Fast 50” PCH Sweepstakes.  That means that 50 lucky winners will each score $50 Cash and one of them could be you!

If you find one of these Secure Packs in your mailbox, you’ll need to ACT FAST to complete the process for your opportunity to win. Just follow the directions inside carefully. It’s very simple.  Here’s how it works.

First of all, the Secure Pack looks like this:actnow

Once you tear along the dotted lines and open it, this is the inside:actnow activation code

You’ll notice a Web address inside:, plus a special ACTIVATION CODE.  Just follow these simple steps to enter the “Fast 50” PCH Sweepstakes:

  1. Type into your web browser (or just click on the link in this blog).
  2. When you reach the website, enter your 5-digit activation code into the white box that says “enter code here.” You can find your activation code once you open your Secure Pack in the black box in the lower right corner (the example above has question marks but yours would have a real 5-digit code).
  3. When the page refreshes, fill out your registration information and click Continue! But be sure to ACT FAST – this is a LIMITED TIME opportunity!

After that, just press “Submit Code” and you’re done! But be sure to ACT FAST because this is a limited-time opportunity! Remember to check your mailbox, starting today!
I think I’ve about covered it all folks. Remember to keep your eyes out for these “act now” post cards (they’re due to hit mailboxes today!) And if you have ANY other questions, comment below and let me know! We’ll be happy to help!

Best of Luck!

Special Early Look Results – What Prize Will PCH Award On April 30th!

BREAKING NEWS: The Special Early Look Results are in…and we can finally reveal what prize Publishers Clearing House will award on April 30th – just 6 days from now! Watch my video below to find out.

Even though the Prize Patrol won’t be awarding the $7,000 A Week For Life prize on April 30th, I am still SO excited because PCH will still be awarding a LIFE-CHANGING amount of money. That’s right, the Prize Patrol still gets to make dreams come true by awarding a Second Chance Prize of One Million Dollars on Thursday! YES, ONE MILLION DOLLARS! I just know that will change someone’s life forever!

So fans, tell me…who out there wants to win $1,000,000 on April 30th? If you won, would you SPEND IT or SAVE IT? Would you QUIT YOUR JOB or CONTINUE WORKING? Would you CRY OUT FOR JOY or BE SPEECHLESS? I have so many questions, so please comment below and let me know what YOU would do if you won One Million Dollars on Thursday!

Good luck everyone! I’ll be wishing on my lucky stars for all of you!

“Time Flies When You’re Having Fun”

Prize Patrol ThrowbackPrize Patrol ready to knock on your door

Recently a TV reporter who was about to knock on someone’s door for a news story said he felt like “that silver haired Publishers Clearing House guy who has been [knocking on doors] for years.”  When my PCH colleagues saw the TV clip they said that reporter was talking about me.  Me?  Silver haired?   I still think of myself as brown-haired as described on an old driver’s license.

Well, I guess I have to admit: the brown is gone – although it seems like only yesterday that brown it was – which goes to prove that “time flies when you’re having fun.”  And fun it has certainly been: leading the Prize Patrol to lucky winners’ doors for over 27 years!

Let’s face it: What could be more fun that giving away Big Checks? Especially when each one is worth thousands, even millions of dollars!

Of course, all of us at Publishers Clearing House recognize that our videotaped “winning moments” represent more than fun to the surprised recipients.  The money sometimes arrives just in the nick of time to prevent a foreclosure or bankruptcy – or to pay for uninsured medical care – or to address some financial misfortune.  Or maybe the Big Check provides a longed-for nest-egg or the funds for a secure retirement.  Or maybe it buys a new car or affords increasingly expensive higher education.  Or maybe the prize provides an opportunity for the winner to share newfound fortune with family members and favorite charities.  You get the picture: awarding and winning big money can be a lot more than just fun.

Since the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes got started, we’ve given away over a quarter of a billion dollars in prize money!  AND, believe me, we still have many, many more Big Checks to be awarded – like our big SuperPrize on April 30th!

So don’t let time get away from you.  Enter our sweepstakes today – and every day.  It would be fun – and maybe a lot more – for us to knock on your door and announce “You are a Publishers Clearing House winner!”

Wishing you the best of luck.

Making “New PCH Believers” On the Road

As you’d expect, the highlight of every Prize Patrol trip is “the winning moment”: when we arrive at a lucky person’s door and present roses, balloons, champagne and the Big Check.

But there’s another “high” we get on the road.  That’s when we meet those “doubting Thomas’s” and, through some simple act, convert them to excited “New PCH Believers.” Let me tell you about nine such folks.

First there was a florist named Dee who prepared a beautiful bouquet of red roses and inflated our PCH balloons.  For years she had seen us on TV but never expected that HER handiwork would be an iconic part of a “winning moment.”  Well, she became “New Believer” #1.

Next was Meg Scherer who accepted a Big $10,000 Check on behalf of her father Joe who was out of town.  Joe clearly believed that he could win someday and entered our sweepstakes frequently – while Meg did not.  Seeing us in-person changed that, and Meg became “New Believer” #2.

PCH Believers

When a winner isn’t home — and won’t be for several days, we leave the important paperwork at a secure place, then startle some nice folks nearby with the roses and balloons that would otherwise wilt.  Recently I met an old friend in an absent winner’s town and explained our undeliverable “cargo.”  She gladly helped out by passing the roses and balloons on to three acquaintances who needed “cheering up.”  In the process she realized, “Gee, I should enter the PCH Sweepstakes too.”  So – that act produced four more “New Believers.”

As for the undeliverable champagne, I knew I couldn’t carry it onto the airplane bound for home.  Not to worry.  When we turned in our rented van at the airport, the guy checking it in saw my Prize Patrol suitcase and said “Wow!  I didn’t think you guys were ‘for real.’”  When I showed him a photo of the morning’s “winning moment” he became “New Believer” #7 – and gratefully accepted the champagne.

Lastly, on the plane, a flight attendant Kristin recognized me from TV and PCH promotions.  She got all excited and asked two women passengers seated beside me, “Do you know who this man is that you’re sitting next to?”  They had no idea; but within a minute they did – and became #’s 8 and 9.

New PCH Believers

In addition to these nine “New PCH Believers,” at least 50 more people saw us in our Prize Patrol blazers and realized that the PCH TV ads they’ve seen countless times are absolutely true.  So, you see we make a lot of folks happy when we travel – not just one lucky winner.  I hope this encourages you to believe too! Here’s hoping that I’ll meet one of you very soon for our April 30th Special Early Look Prize Event.
