Publishers Clearing House

Publishers Clearing House (PCH), headquartered in Port Washington, NY, is a leading multi-channel direct marketer of value-based consumer products and magazines and a respected leader in the direct marketing industry. Our company’s name is synonymous with the sweepstakes which PCH uses to draw attention to discounted magazine deals and product offers. Nationally known for our famous Prize Patrol that surprises screaming winners on their doorsteps with huge sweepstakes prizes while TV cameras are rolling, we at PCH have awarded over $220 Million in prizes and also offer free credit and 100% satisfaction guaranteed on all items purchased through the mail or from our rapidly growing website, With approximately 400 full-time employees, over 40% of PCH’s profits go to trusts for the benefit of charities.

PCH’s iconic TV commercials featuring the memorable, real-life reactions of stunned sweepstakes prize winners surprised by the company’s Prize Patrol team have entertained audiences all across America and spawned a number of good-natured skits on such TV shows as Saturday Night Live and The Tonight Show.
