Sweepstakes Winner Questionnaire Responses

A common sweepstakes winner questionnaire response is: “This Can’t Be Happening To Me!”

A common sweepstakes winner questionnaire response is: “This Can’t Be Happening To Me!”

Besides the Big Check, the roses and the balloons which we deliver to PCH Sweepstakes winners, we leave something else behind: a sweepstakes winner questionnaire for them to fill-out and return to us days later after they’ve caught their breath.  It’s not a questionnaire like many companies put forth asking customers to rate their service on a scale of one to ten.  (Without being boastful, I think we Prize Patrol’ers would always get a resounding 10!)  No, we want the folks back at Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes headquarters to read what the winning moment was like and what the after-effects have been.

If there is a universal response to “What did you think when you saw the PCH Prize Patrol at your door?” it’s a combination of “This can’t be happening to me!” and “I can’t believe this!” and “Am I dreaming?!?”  Other words used to describe the experience are “Stunned,” “Flabbergasted,” “Miraculous,” “Overwhelming,” “Total shock,” and “Oh my Lord, it’s real!”

We also ask about the reaction of relatives and friends.  The regular response is “They thought I was joking when I told them” or “They never believed that these things are real.”

I say to the winners, “Surely YOU must have believed that you could win or you would not have entered, right?” They reply, “Well, I believed it was real, and so I kept entering and hoping and praying; but I never really thought that I could win.”

Well, they could, and they did!

All of this simply goes to show YOU that if you are hoping for a dream to come true, there’s no better place to visit than to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes, “the house where dreams come true.”

As the year 2012 approaches, you’d be smart to make a New Year’s resolution to go online to and enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes every day.  You have nothing to lose and perhaps thousands or millions of dollars in prize money to gain.  In that event, how would YOU respond to the sweepstakes winner questionnaire?

Wishing you the best of luck – and a Happy New Year!
