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

Executive Vice President

PCH Publishers Clearing House

!n 1989 (maybe earlier), I’ve submitted applications because I know I will be one of the $1,000,000 winners.After Sandy destroyed our house, PCH has been extremely patient with us moving from place to place. I have moved over 9 times and they have been very pleasant changing addresses, etc. Being on social security, mail being forwarded,having additional expenses,etc.bills have been unbelievable.I thank God for their wonderful patience, ability to dream, customer service and understanding.They represent the qualities of an outstanding company.

It says to search to receive your entry. I have searched the web for many things and it never says that my entry has been excepted. So I search more and it still says to search. What do I do to confirm number when other entries immediately are accepted after searching, the 1,000,000.00 dollar entry is never available to me after I search, it simply keeps saying search.

Where are the numbers for #3080 Re: February 28th “forever” prize event?

I don’t understand what I’m suppose to do Search and Win, search what? Just use your search engine to look up anything? And go through all the contests or do I just look up any contest PCH is giving away something and do this every day? I can’t understand please explain Donna

When you say respond to each and every time we here from you, does this mean I should respond to every email…because I get 4 emails a day from you guys. However I thought the rules said you are only allowed to enter once per day per email or you will be disqualified from winning a prize.

I’ve been entering PCH contests for the past 10-15 years and have never won a penny. I have grave doubts that any real people really win and the constant emails you send threatening us with expulsion from the drawing when we have already submitted the required material and in most cases have purchased items get a little tiring. one in a billion are some long odds, it’s hardly worth all the trouble.
