Everybody Wants to Win: Just Ask The Greenbrier

There’s a grand old resort called The Greenbrier located in West Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains. Since 1778 it has hosted presidents, celebrities and corporate big shots who enjoy its combination of luxury, tradition (including afternoon tea and waltzes) and recreation in the mountain air.

As tastes have changed over the years and the leisure class has sought more exotic destinations, the Greenbrier has had to adjust, as reported in The New York Times. One way the new management has sought to improve the resort’s finances is to install a casino – which may attract a younger, hipper clientele than the Greenbrier has catered to for centuries. Basically anybody that wants to win!

Well, we don’t know the new owner; but if he had asked our opinion, we could have told him that “Everybody wants to win money” – so adding a casino for that purpose is a “no-brainer” that will be good for business.

Winning has certainly been good for Publishers Clearing House’s business. We added a sweepstakes to our direct mail promotions back in 1967 with the sole purpose of drawing attention to our “unbeatable” magazine subscription deals. While a purchase is not necessary to enter or win our sweepstakes, the chance to win huge cash prizes generated a lot of excitement then, and it still does today. I mean: Wouldn’t you like the Prize Patrol to knock on your door and present you with roses, balloons, champagne and a Big Check worth thousands, even millions of dollars?

If your answer to that is “You betcha!” just click on this link to pch.com and enter The Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes without delay.

If you win our next SuperPrize you can celebrate at the ultra-luxurious Greenbrier or any place you want!

Good luck!

Dave Sayer
Executive Director

  4. Ready to win Big Money Oct 31,2010!
    Then I received another invitation
    that said November 30th!!!!
    I am ready to win Both!!!!!!!
    I have played this games over 41 years! Looks like my turn for winning should be near. I certainly have been a faithful
    customer. What a Blessing if
    you showed up at my door!!!!!!

    Always Playing,
    Wanda Mullins

  5. Thank You for answering me!
    I have missed getting emails,
    but I did receive entries in
    the mail. I faithfully returned
    everyone of them in hopes of
    winning! Like I said over
    40 years of wishing I would
    win. One day I might be
    surprised. I am retired
    now and a supplement to my retirement income would really help.
    Many happy entries!!!!!!!!
    Wishful thinking!!!!!!!!

  6. Why did you stop sending me changes
    on the internet to play Search and
    Win? The last entry was on Aug 9
    from Toad Sloan. Instead on continuing to give me a change at
    future entries daily. They just
    quit. I have not had a email
    chance since Aug.9 2010. I have
    played this game for 41 or 42 years. I can’t understand why
    things changed and no entries
    come in at all. I did not request to be taken off the mailing list. I have played this game over 40 years. Doesn’t that seem strange
    that I would quit? I don’t know what happened.
