The House that PCH Built – A Sweepstakes Winner Story

Two years ago, I would have never envisioned what happened over Memorial Day weekend. Our house was brimming with our family and friends! That could have never happened two years ago!

Two years ago, we were living in a trailer that could barely hold us or any guests that would drop in for a visit. Now, it seems that the new two story Bostelman house is party central!

As soon as we broke ground in the Summer of 2009, there were many questions about the build, but the main question was, “When’s the Open House?”

Since completion, we’ve hosted Thanksgiving, a Holiday party and a Family gathering. We’re still contemplating a true “Open House” as we dive in to landscaping.

We had always planned to build our Dream Home, but the time frame jumped significantly when the Prize Patrol surprised me with the Big Check in 2008. We were probably at least 8 – 10 years away from construction in our planning before the win.

Who knew a simple search on PCH’s Search and Win website would grant us the financial freedom to push forward with our goal? Now I know – and I urge you to keep entering! Who knows? Maybe the search you do today will pay off!

GOOD LUCK!

Hi Angie,
Every entry you send in is processed with care and has an equal chance of winning. The more often you enter the more chances you have to win. Winners are selected at random, so you never know which entry might be the next winner.

I have been entering and playing PCH for over two years and I have won absolutely nothing! I also just spun the wheel and won a whopping 10,000 in tokens and tried to redeem and a message pops up that I can not redeem and get my gifts cards because I am not a U. S. resident…. I have been no where in my life but the United States, born and raised!!!! What’s that about??? I don’t believe the hype.:-(

I;’ve enter every pch for at least 20 years! I have never won, of course, I knoe it’s just up to the lck of the draw. I don’t feel purposely ignored! One thing that bothers me is when I anticipate a big win( more like hoping snd prsying!), on the big ‘revel’ day, the date hsd been moved back several weeks/months! I feel angry at PCH for letting me down!! Why do you keep re-setting sweepstakes ‘due’ dates?
