What is it Like for a Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize winner – 48 Hours Later?

It’s my custom to give every Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize winner a phone call a day or two after his or her winning moment – just to see how they are doing. I mean, when such a life-changing event occurs, wouldn’t you want to check in? Like when there’s a “blessed event” in the family? Or something major like that?

Well, Marilyn Ragin’s Million Dollar SuperPrize wasn’t a “blessed event” in the birth-giving sense; but she couldn’t help saying, “This is some blessing!”

Marilyn was tremendously grateful for the surprise visit of the PCH Prize Patrol. We had already given her a check for $25,000 (“to show you we’re serious” we said), and it had been promptly deposited in the bank.

Because so many winners have told me they had trouble sleeping that first night – afraid that they might wake up and find that the dream had not really come true, I asked Marilyn: “How did you sleep?”

“Not too bad,” she told me. Maybe a new sense of financial security helped her sleep, I thought. “But of course there’s still a lot of excitement,” she added.

I asked her if she had done anything special yet – like a big night out or a madcap purchase.

“Not yet,” Marilyn replied, laughing. “I’m still trying to get my head around it! I’ve gotten loads of calls from friends expressing lots of good wishes. And they all say the same thing: ‘Now that I know someone who won, NOW I believe it! I won’t throw those things out anymore!’”

“That’s what everyone says,” I told Marilyn. “There’s nothing like meeting a real Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize winner to prove that it can happen to anyone!”

You may not have met Marilyn like I did; but I can assure you that she is a real person. And if she can win, YOU can win.

  8. Good Day PCH,
    I am here to enter for give away 4900 for $250,000.00 a year for life. I would be blessed to win such a great prize. I could pay my way out of debt, buy my own house and help my children. I believe this is enough to start a Veterans program with. I believe the Veterans are over looked way too much. I come from a long line of military men and proud to call these men family and hero’s. It could be to help with back taxes, some extra food, what ever the needs might be. I would call the program ” A Hand Up And Not A Hand Out ” . A way for the men and woman who served this great country to stand back up.
    Please consider me and my entry. If you want to follow your more than welcome, I might even put you to work on follow up reports.
    Thank you for your time.
    Joann Parrott :)
    Give away 4900
