Hey Prize Patrol: What’s In That Suitcase?

On a recent Prize Patrol trip, I was often asked what was in my suitcase.

On a recent Prize Patrol trip, I was often asked what was in my suitcase.

Capital One’s advertising slogan is “What’s in your wallet?”  Well, for me, the week of November 28th was when everyone I saw yelled “What’s in your suitcase?”  That’s because I was jetting from Tampa to Cincinnati to Newark to Dallas to Houston and home again pulling my wheelie-suitcase with a big, bright Prize Patrol logo on it.  Even if Danielle, Todd and I were not dressed “as seen on TV” in our blue-blazer uniforms, everyone in airports, on airplanes and in hotels knew who we were and what we were up to.  “Are you coming to my house?” they cried.

You know the TSA personnel at airport security who are usually as stone-faced as the guards at Buckingham Palace?  Well, even they lost their composure as they screened our baggage – probably hoping that we were there to surprise them with thousands or millions of dollars.  Sadly we had to tell them we were on our way to deliver a prize to someone else or that we had just changed the life of someone nearby and were on to the next award.  “But,” I advised them, “you could be a winner too if you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.

The universal reaction from far too many people in these situations was, “Gee, I never thought the PCH Prize Patrol was real!”  Imagine!  After all these years of showing actual “winning moments” on TV and appearing on national talk shows I couldn’t believe the amount of skepticism there is out there!

“We are absolutely real,” we assured them.  “See this?” I said referring to the oversized packages wrapped in brown paper that we were carrying.  “These are Big Checks for the lucky Publishers Clearing House Sweepstake winners.”

“Oh Wow!” they replied.  “How do I get in on this?”

“Just go enter the PCH Sweepstakes online at,” I said.  “It’s as simple as that.”

Chances are that if you are a regular PCH Blog reader you know how easy it is to enter our fabulous sweepstakes.  True, we just awarded a Mega Prize of $1 Million plus $5000 a week for life to Leroy Faulks Sr. of New Jersey.  But there are lots more prizes to win at Publishers Clearing House – prizes worth up to $10 Million!  And our rules allow you to go online to and enter our sweepstakes every day giving you more chances to win.

After all that traveling I’m glad to be home.  But, as always, I’m looking forward to another Prize Patrol trip. If you enter now and are lucky, our next destination could be your front door.

Wishing you the best of luck.
