Prize Patrol Delivery Brings Economic Relief to Miami Winner

Earl Lumsden of Miami, Florida was not expecting the PCH Prize Patrol to pull up to his house and knock on his door. If he had been, he probably would have had enough clothes on to appear in one of our famous PCH TV Commercials. Alas, he was only half dressed for the sweepstakes winning moment. But he got himself pulled together for the “photo op” shown below.

EARL LUMSDEN 1

You can see that Earl was one happy Publishers Clearing House winner – and not just because of the wonderful surprise visit from the Prize Patrol, but because Earl has been out of work for several years, a victim of the recession. So the Big Check for $10,000 was mighty welcome.

“I can’t stop shaking,” Earl said, apologizing as his normally steady handwriting became almost illegible.

“That’s normal,” I assured him, knowing from my hundreds of prize awards that Publishers Clearing House winners are often too overwhelmed to maintain their faculties.

Don’t believe me? Enter the PCH Sweepstakes by going to pch.com, and if we surprise you with a Big Check – worth thousands, even millions of dollars – you will find that it’s hard to stay calm!

Good luck!

There are many PCH winners from Texas. The most recent major winner was Jelaine Jaeb from Coppell, TX, who won $10,000 in August 2009.
Her story and photo were posted here on the PCH Blog on 8/24/09, in an entry entitled “Do Pets Win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes?”
The map you saw only showed the winners who got prizes this week, as part of our Prize Patrol Blitz. It does not show all the winners we’ve ever had.

well they said someone in the buffalo viewing area won here guess the three tv stations didn’t care because the women that won was about an hour away from our area and the fact that extreme home makeover is in the viewing area as in the city of buffalo sorry your winner was as important enough for any crews to drive that far to cover the winning moment

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Deborah Holland said...

TV Viewing Areas are defined by Nielsen Media Research, the same company that measures the size of viewing audiences for TV shows. The largest share of TV viewing in every county in the U.S. can be attributed to stations in a particular TV area. As an illustration, most of the TV viewing in Sarasota County, FL can be traced to stations broadcasting out of Tampa and St. Petersburg; therefore, anyone who lives in Sarasota County, FL, resides in the “Tampa Bay TV Area.”
You live in a “TV Viewing Area”. Most likely your TV Area is named for the largest metropolitan area in your vicinity.
PCH Prize Patrol teams delivered prizes to 101 TV Viewing Areas this week. Go to the Prize Patrol Live site at http://prizepatrol.pch.com to see where they went.

The Prize Patrol tries to get local TV and news coverage in every market we visit for a prize award. Sometimes the local media will cover the story, but sometimes they don’t.

    Hi Linda,

    We have had prize winners in every state. We recently had a winner from Hawaii named Destiny Kalani. Our Prize Patrol deputies actually tracked her down to an airport and surprised her there!

    At Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased and is conducted by independent auditors and Giveaway Supervisors. We have no way of determining who our winners may be or where they may come from. Our most recent winners can be found on the top of our web site at http://www.pch.com/ on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link.

    While we have promoted our famous sweepstakes for over 40 years as a way to draw attention to our unbeatable magazine deals and value-based merchandise offerings no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win. You may be interested to know that the majority of our major prize winners have not ordered with their winning entry! Of course, if you do choose to order, our guarantee policy allows you to return any product or cancel a magazine subscription if you are not happy with your order.

    All promotional mailings from Publishers Clearing House carry a prominent “Sweepstakes Facts” insert that among other information states the prize value and odds of winning. The insert reminds all recipients that:

    You Have Not Yet Won. All Entries Have The Same Chance of Winning. The winner has not been identified. We don’t know who the winner is. If you enter our Sweepstakes, your entry will have the same chance to win as every other entry.

    Enter For Free. You don’t have to buy anything to enter. Just mail the entry form included in this mailing or follow the instructions in the Official Rules.

    Enter As Often As You Like. You don’t have to wait for us to mail you an entry form. You may submit additional entries simply by writing to us at Publishers Clearing House, 101 Winners Circle, Port Washington, NY 11050. Each time you write to us you will be entered once in each ongoing Sweepstakes. Each entry request must be mailed separately.

    Buying Won’t Help You Win. Your chances of winning without a purchase are the same as the chances of someone who buys something. It would not be lawful to give any advantage to buyers in a Sweepstakes.

I have been receiving emails and everthing from PCH for about 8 years now and always got my hopes up high thinking I’m going to win something,But after 8 years now I’m done I haven’t won a thing and now I’m fed up with the emails and everything else. I will be taking them off my browser and maybe I will have better luck with the ohio lottery. Because It seems to me people that really need the money like me just can’t win.

    We’re sorry to hear you’ve been sending in your entries for for so long and have never won a prize. Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway.

    Each entry received has an equal chance of winning and we never know who our next winner may be. Our winners are as varied as the faces you see in our famous television commercials coming from all walks of life, ages, ethnic backgrounds and regions. We have had winners who live in big cities, small towns, trailer parks, high rise apartments and even the Alaskan tundra.

First I would like to say lots of luck and prayers to all of the players.I think pch house is awesome, all who work there try to do there best in ansering all of your complants and respond to all of your emails and your concerns. Everytime I get on pch site I have a blast, sometimes I buy, sometimes I don’t regardless, I still get my number entered into the next drawing, Everyone goes through so much in life and we all pray for the same things, There are billions of people out there and only so many can win, If you haven’t won yet it’s just not your turn, entering should be fun, not a promise to win, I know pch would like all of us to be winners but there can only be so many, I say pch is the best place to have fun. Instead of us being mean with the commits we write, we need to be more supportive, so we can win, maybe start by inviteing them to our citys or states and offering them some southern hospitality. well I said my peace. Good luck to all of you players don’t give up maybe the next time you will open the door and pch will be standing there with a big check and some roses and some bubbly, and your dreams will finely come true, just make sure you get up everyday and brush your teeth if you have some and brush your hair and get dressed and look pretty or handsome, that way if they do come your ready for your close up. Good luck to all of you, sincerly Dottie Alfaro

Dear Gwendolyn,

I am now 57 years old. I have been entering Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes since I was 18 and living on my own. That is 39 years and 2 months of entering. Imagine how many people enter the PCH Sweepstakes. Have you ever read the PCH SWEEPSTAKES FACTS concerning the ratio of winners to entries?
One thing I know for certain is that I can’t win if I don’t enter. Sure the odds are great, and as much as I don’t want to think about it; I may never win. BUT I can DREAM about it anyway.

On the other hand, what happens if my entry is selected? WOW a life changing experience !

Winning PCH rates as my THIRD BIGGEST DREAM. My First was to find the Love of my Life. I WON THAT ONE. My Second was to be a good mother. My Adorable grown children tell me that I WON THAT ONE TOO.

I will keep entering every PCH Sweepstakes that I can, for as long as I can.

Please try to think of entering the PCH Sweepstakes as a DREAM that, ONE DAY, COULD COME TRUE..BUT ONLY IF YOU ENTER.

GOOD LUCK TO US ALL!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and here is wishing everyone a HEALTHY,HAPPY,and DREAM filled NEW YEAR.

Dear Ruby, Roma and other PCH sweepstakes entrants with immediate and Urgent needs,

I wish You good luck in the PCH Sweepstakes.

I hear your cries for help, and understand your feelings of pain and desperation.

It should be FUN to enter the PCH sweepstakes, and winning is something we all DREAM about. As much as we would all like to win, it is not something we can count on to resolve our immediate needs.

I would like to share some other avenues with you, which YOU can appeal to for your Immediate and Urgent needs.

You wrote about family members with serious medical conditions, other medical services needs and medical equipment needs.

Ruby, I have no idea where you live, and Roma I do see you live in the State of Indiana.

I do NOT know the ages of your relatives in need, and PLEASE UNDERSTAND that I am NOT asking you to share this, or any other PRIVATE or PERSONAL information, to this PCH Blog.

I simply want to take this opportunity to tell you about other avenues which may be of immediate assistance to you and your family members. I beleive this may be information worth Your looking in to.

Most towns and cities have Service Clubs, or Service Organizations.

These Service Clubs and Organizations are non-profit organizations, usually made up of volunteers who work for businesses in your area; who meet regualrly to perform charitable works. Their desires and goals are to assist individuals and families, IN THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES, as well as specific organizations they support or represent for specific causes.

You may have seen them working food booths, or having all you can eat Fish Frys and Tenderloin dinners, working in and about your local fairs and aFestivals. Many Service Clubs raise funds this way.

They work toward providing Services, such as Urgent Medical care needs, College Scholarships, Hearing and Seeing disabilities, Housing, Food and Clothing needs, plus other needs.

For example: the Masons have a hospital, called the Shriner Children’s Hospital, which caters to children, from all over the U.S.A. and Abroad; providing FREE medical services including hospitalization, surgeries and medical equipment for the patients home.

Roma, depending on the age of your sister, the Shriner Children’s Hospital may be of help to your family.

Ruby, You can make an appeal to your LOCAL Masonic Lodge for help in securing the special needs of your son, such as the bath tub or shower you mentioned.

I know all about this because, after my fall down the very narrow and steep staircase in our home, and nearly losing my life; the Masons came in to our home and totally replaced the entire staircase, added a landing and specal handrails for me, and even added a much needed closet for my medical equipment and supplies. PLUS, they exchanged our toilet with an ADA height bowl, which I also needed, and at the time, did not have the money to pay for all of this.

Roma, I read that the Liver is our only internal organ that regenerates itself; if it has some healthy tissue. It is our only internal organ where a donor can provide just a section of their own healthy liver tissue to a recipient needing one, the thing is you have to find a perfect match.

I’ve known service clubs that have run campaigns to help a family find a matching donor in a few situations, such as liver and bone marrow.

I recommend looking in your yellow pages, under Service Clubs, or use your PCHSearchandWin Search Engine and search for Yellowpages.com and make a search for Service Clubs, then enter your Zip Code or the Zip Code or name of the largest City near you.

Gather the phone number(s), mailing address and other contact information. You may or may not see the name of the President of the organization, but if you do find this, address your letter(s) to the President of the Service Club.

Another good way to find information about available Service Clubs in your area, is to look in your local newspaper. These organizations can be found in newspaper articles all of time, showing what they are doing or have done for the community.

When you write to a Service Club for assistance, be honest about your needs, and explain your situation, without embellishment.
Tell where or if you work, and live, and a little about your financial condition. Explain what efforts YOU have made to acquire the items or services you need help with. Be prepared to attend a meeting to meet face to face with the club members and to explain what and why you need help.

By all means KEEP ENTERING PCH SWEEPSTAKES, as we all know that you can’t win if you don’t enter, but do the reliable thing and contact an organization for immediate help help.

God Bless You and Yours

    Hey Aviva,

    We have had prize winners in every state. At Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased and is conducted by independent auditors and Giveaway Supervisors. We have no way of determining who our winners may be or where they may come from. Our most recent winners can be found on the top of our web site on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link.

    Cheers & best of luck in our sweepstakes!
    Alanna @ PCH

My grandmother had been entering PCH for many years, she never won anything, but she sure did dream of it. Now she’s passed an I enter the sweepstakes. I sent my first entry on my 18th birthday (I still think that would have been awesome to have won with that entry). Maybe someday I’ll win, maybe I won’t (I rather doubt I will considering the odds), but you can’t win if you don’t enter.

    Hi Marilyn,

    PCH Search & Win is a search engine, just like Google or Yahoo. It is used to help you find information on the internet. When you type something into the box on PCH Search & Win and click on the “Search” button, our service will search the internet and provide you with a list of websites that relate to what you typed into the box. You do not need to visit any of the sites that are shown in the list after you click the “Search” button. As soon as you type something into the box provided and click on “Search”, your entry is submitted.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,
    Rebecca @ PCH

    Hello Marilyn,

    Please be advised that the length of time you’ve been entering our sweepstakes does not increase your chances of winning. Every person who submits an entry to us has the exact same chance of winning, regardless of how long or short they’ve been entering.

    Good luck,

Beverly Johnson said...

I have been entering pch.com for years and my number can’t come up yet? How are these numbers coming up in sequence or what? I need money also and no one is knocking on my door. I need to know when I receive the pch on my email and I enter why can’t I see my name on the list of winners? I need to know how much longer can I wait for my number to arise. I am also one of those people who is in need. Hurry up with my number.

    Beverly,

    The winning numbers are drawn in a random drawing. There is no order or sequence to the winning numbers, so you never know when you could be a BIG winner!

    Hi Wayne,

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. This is a scam. The offer you’re describing did not come from Publishers Clearing House. PCH does not notify winners by phone. PCH would not ask for your personal information for such a large prize since you must give that information when you enter. You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.

Patricia, your sob story will get you zilch so far as PCH is concerned. They just want you to spend as much of your $ as possible on magazines you will never read and shoddy overpriced junk that you don’t need and then say they “love” you. Yeah, right– Good luck on the streets because that is exactly where you are going because you will NOT win this scam sweepstakes!

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
ViktoriaTreller said...

Has your mailbox been stuffed with PCH trash lately? They start a new sweepstakes asap after you haven’t won the latest one (and never will) to get your mind off that. And have you noticed where they say they review your ordering history every week? Sure they do. This is a way of saying that you’d better order something or you have no chance of winning (which you don’t have anyway)–

Wow what a hater…im a single mom with two kids and im homeless right now…so let me tell you if i was a winner i wouldn’t care if the t.v. Crew came to my house or not…i would just be grateful that i won…just because that person didn’t get on TV doesn’t mean that she wasn’t as special as all the rest i’m sure she didn’t even care about being on TV the fact that she won some money is what really made a difference in her life and i’m sure she is extremely grateful for that…..so even thou i haven’t won anything from pch i want to say thank you from everyone for making a difference in peoples lives
