The Big Check – A Super Sur-Prize Waiting At The Door

On many occasions the PCH Prize Patrol, big check in hand, has arrived at a winner’s home, knocked, and within seconds the door opens and we can tell from the gender of the person that THIS is NOT the winner.

The startled person may get all excited and say something like, “Oh, my gosh, that’s my wife! Oh gee, she’s out shopping! Let me call her on her cell and get her home right away!”

We think that’s a fine idea, but we don’t want Hubby to spoil the surprise. So we say, “OK – but DON’T tell her why she has to come home.”

“Hmmm,” he’ll say. “Yeah, I don’t want to scare her. She’ll think something’s happened to one of the kids or something.”

We ask him to “Please RELAX. It’s all going to be fun. Just ask her — very calmly — to come home.”

“OK – I’ll try,” he says.

Well, no matter how he phrases his phone call, within minutes his wife’s car comes barreling down the street and screeches into the driveway – as if she thinks the house is on fire.

As Mrs. Lucky-winner jumps from her car, we step forward waving the big check and announce, “Guess what! You are a winner in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!”

Talk about relief! There are screams of delight, maybe some tears, some shaken nerves, and the universal reaction: “Oh my God! Are you serious? You have got to be kidding!”

Well, everything always turns out fine – I mean GREAT! Everyone is joyful and full of congratulations, and there are hugs and kisses all around.

How does an experience like this sound to you? I’ll bet you’re saying “GREAT” too.

So click here on this link to and ENTER the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes without delay! And if you win, don’t worry: we’ll find you – whether you’re shopping or whatever — and give you the Sur-Prize of your life in form one very big check!
