The “winning moments” you see in our PCH TV commercials are jam-packed with iconic images – like the Prize Patrol van, the knock on the door, the roses, the PCH logo on the balloons, winners gasping in shock, and – ta dahh – the Big Check!
Of course it’s not the oversized cardboard check that goes to the bank; that role is played by the real check, which measures only about 3 by 7 inches, and – believe me – despite its small size it can be life-changing. But that Big Check is important nonetheless and is enshrined forever – in memory if not framed and hanging in a place of honor in the living room – as if the winner would ever forget such an exciting day!
Most winners are so giddy and intoxicated with joy they ask us “Can I keep this Big Check?”
“Absolutely!” we tell them. “See your name printed on it? We can’t use it again. It’s all yours!”
“Oh thank you, thank you!” they say and give us more hugs.
Do you have a place in your home to hang a Big Check from PCH? I bet you’ll find a spot if we surprise you with a giant cash prize worth thousands or millions of dollars. Or, if you’re living in cramped quarters, maybe your prize money will afford you spacious new digs. I remember one winner who was short on space. Well he found his way around that — he built a dream home and hung his Big Check in his “man-cave.”
It sure is fun thinking about winning, isn’t it? But it’s even more fun to actually win. So make sure you take advantage of every chance you have to make your dreams come true. Enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes at pch.com today and every day. And who knows? You could wind up with some fabulous artwork on your wall.
Wishing you the best of luck.
Prize Patrol Ambassador
I’d love to hang that big check on the wall and spend the real one like crazy.
