Winning Sweepstakes Prize Numbers Not Found

In a recent sweepstakes prize drawing for 18 sweepstakes winners, only 7 winning numbers were claimed and 11 sweepstakes prizes went unclaimed!

I reviewed the prize drawing report myself. Seven of these sweepstakes winners were smart enough to send back their entries and ended up receiving the good news that they had each won a cash sweepstakes prize. But, incredibly, more than half of the people who had received a winning bulletin never bothered to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes and never found out that they, too, could have been one of the sweepstakes winners.

What did we do about these “unclaimed prizes”? A second chance random drawing was held to select 11 alternate sweepstakes winners from among all the people who were smart enough to send in their PCH contest entry by the deadline. Boy, were each of those entrants happy to hear they had won a cash sweepstakes prize!

That’s why we often encourage you to enter the PCH Sweepstakes each and every time you hear from us because you never know which one might be a winner … and you don’t want to be one of those “unclaimed prize” folks, especially with $5000 A Week for Life at stake!

Sincerely,

Deborah Holland

      Hi Jacqueline,

      When our famous Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol awards a prize in person, they make every effort to find that winner. If the winner is at work, on vacation, or away from home, the Prize Patrol will find them. I hope this was helpful!

      Cheers,
      Rod @ PCH

      Hey Robert,

      If you are a winner, please rest assured that you will definitely be notified. Winners of $10,000 or more will be notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol and winners of anything under $10,000 will be notified by Certified letter or Express letter.

      Good luck!

    dear PCH i want to win but you said search and i did my code no. is 1400 can you see if thats right thank you from robert niesborella

    1. PCH Customer Service PCH Customer Service says:

      Hi Robert,

      Please be aware that the number 1400 is a draw number, not a specific number assigned to you. Everyone who enters for the $10,000,000.00 draw is entering into draw number 1400. Once your entry was transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it is assigned a SuperPrize Number. It is this number that is used to draw the winner.

      I hope this was helpful!

    im looking for my name in pch search and win

    1. PCH Customer Service PCH Customer Service says:

      Hi Robert,

      Just use PCH Search & Win the same way you’d use a regular search engine, like Google or Yahoo. Looking for a recipe? Type “Recipes” in the search box. Want to know what to do with that pound of ground beef in the freezer? Type “Recipes with Ground Beef” in the search box. Want to know who starred in a movie you recently saw? Type the name of the movie, and voila! The Internet is the place to find whatever you’re looking for, and PCH Search & Win can help.

      If your PCH Search & Win search is a lucky winner, you’ll see a page that looks like this instead of your search results:

      http://static.blingo.com/pch/images/screenshots/winningScreen1.gif

      We don’t use pop-up windows, so you don’t need to change any settings on your computer.

      If you have received this page, you may enter your claim code to claim your prize or check the status of a previously claimed prize on this page: http://search.pch.com/claim. Just tell us where to send your prize, whether it’s a movie ticket or a new car! It’s that simple. Best of luck!

      Regards,
      Rod @ PCH
