August Winner Soon to Receive the Surprise of a Lifetime

The August winner announcement day is today, August 31st, and the famous Prize Patrol team is on the road looking for the newest SuperPrize winner. If you’ve been entering the PCH SuperPrize sweepstakes, that winner could very well be you! One thing is for sure, it would be the surprise of a lifetime to have the famous Prize Patrol show up at your front door later today or tomorrow with a big check from Publishers Clearing House.

Here at PCH, the team has been busy preparing for the big cash prize delivery, starting with selecting the sweepstakes winner! After the prize drawing was held, the Prize Patrol team had just enough time to organize the Prize Patrol delivery basics, including the Big Check, champagne, balloons, roses and the famous Prize Patrol blazers for each team member. Then the Prize Patrollers, along with Goodwill Ambassador Natalie Bostelman, camera crew and media reporters made last minute travel plans to surprise the August winner with a big check from Publishers Clearing House. Where exactly they’re headed, we can’t say, but we’d love to hear your guesses in the comments below.

Will the Prize Patrol have to travel far from PCH headquarters? Will the SuperPrize August winner be from a small city or a big city? Fortunately, we don’t have to wait long as these questions will be answered very soon!

You can follow the action by visiting our Prize Patrol twitter feed @prizeguy. There, you can stay up to date with what’s happening on the road and view some pictures of the Big Check in the secret envelope! In addition, you will be able to watch a video of the winning moment at http://pchtv.com soon after the august winner is announced, so make sure keep checking PCHtv throughout the day for updates.

I truly hope the PRIZE PATROL van is in Tucson right now. I just want to wish the best of luck to everyone who has entered. Anyone who wins this great prize is for sure lucky and I know they deserve to have it. Myself if I win this it would just be great timing and it would definitely help pay off debt and help my parents. I have 3 little ones and I’m a stay at home mom and so this would take a load off my husband’s shoulders.

    Hi Stephanie,

    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.

Also, do I NEED to answer the emails that PCH sends in order for me to have a chance to win? Or do I still have a chance if I just fill out the entry form that you get when you click “BEGIN” on the main page? Just wondering.

Well congratulations to the winner! And I’m going to keep on praying nd’ hope that god answers my prayers<3

        PCH Customer Service said...

        Hi Adrienna,

        Our independent auditors select a winning SuperPrize number at random. Publishers Clearing House does not know the winning number until giveaway end when the auditors reveal it to us. Throughout the life of the sweepstakes, Publishers Clearing House assigns SuperPrize numbers to outgoing Bulletins. Any one of the numbers assigned to you while the giveaway is going on could be the winning number. If none of the SuperPrize numbers assigned to entries matched the number selected by the independent auditors match, the prize is carried over.

        Unless otherwise indicated, there are generally no age limits to enter and win a Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. Awards to minors are held in trust until the individual has reached the age of maturity. You can check the Official Rules in our entries for each contest to determine if there is an age limit on a specific giveaway being offered.

        Another date for the $5,000 a Week for Life draw has not yet been announced.

        Publishers Clearing House prides itself on running a fair and honest sweepstakes for over 40 years in which we have awarded in excess of $300 million in prizes across the United States and Canada. We are registered with the Secretary of State in New York and Florida. Many of our winners are just like you. In fact, the majority of our winners of $1 million or more have done so as a result of a non-order entry. We really mean it when we say that there is no purchase necessary. While our sweepstakes are designed to create interest in our magazine and merchandise offers, it clearly states in all of our mailings that there is no purchase necessary to enter or win any of our sweepstakes.

    Angela,

    I have been playing since 1987 (and am 45 years old) they always say “someone with your initals will be drawn” – and never does…just a ploy to get you to keep on playing. Don’t mean to sound like a downer and I guess I am stupid enough to keep participating but here’s hoping that sometime I just might be that lucky “winner.”

      Hi Nadine,

      As detailed in the mailing, in these nationwide contests a separate prize of $100.00 is allocated to each of the 676 unique combinations of two letters in the alphabet. Each timely entrant in the contest is classified by the first and last initials of their name, and assigned to the group of contestants who share the same first and last initials that together form one of these combinations. At contest end, we award a prize for each such combination of letters to a contestant selected at random from among all those with the corresponding initials.

Our newest millionaire winner is Joseph Beane of Las Vegas, NV. A $5000 A Week For Life winning number was not returned, so we held a second chance random drawing from among all eligible entrants to award the guaranteed base prize of $1 Million. Joseph won in the second chance drawing.

so when is the next 5000 a week prize drawing going to be if there is going to be one.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Jessika,

    All draws are awarded on the date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts that comes with each entry as per our official rules. In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

    Regards,
    Jodi @ PCH

I missed all the excitement today with having to work but I just got a chance to watch the winning moment on PCHTV. How kewl is this? A postman finally gets a surprise letter for himself without having it going though the mail. Looks like Joseph Beane had a most wonderful day thanks to PCH!
Before I left for work @prizeguy was still showing us pictures of chandeliers, I was leaning more towards the Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans but the time was wrong..It was fun trying to figue out where the Prize Patrol really was. So on that note,”Thanks PCH for the fun with this sweepstakes-but now it is time to go onto the next!”
PS Frank ALB I like the email with “Ahoy Matey” that was a fun email..and the BEST one yet. *smile*

Erma Simpson said...

Deborah or anyone from PCH, will you answer this for me please. When you say the winning number wasn’t returned, do u mean a contestant didn’t fill out the e-mail/letter or that you flashed the number on NBC and the owner of the winning number didn’t respond in time?
Thanks

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Erma,

    What happens is we do a draw for a number and check to see if there has been an entry returned with that number. If there has been a matching winning entry, we award the prize and that giveaway ends right there. If there has been no winner, we carry the prize over to another date. This can go on until we reach the official end date and at that time we guarantee that there will be a winner.

    You won’t have to lift a finger to find out if you’ve won. Winners of $10,000 or more are notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol and winners of anything under $10,000 are notified by Certified letter or Express letter.

    Regards,
    Jodi @ PCH

anthony campbell said...

Deborah,
How come you did not answer the question about emails telling a lot of us someone with our initials will win in our area? How are we supposed to know if that is true? Where can we get a winners list because if it is not true they should not be able to say that giving people false hope.

    Hi Anthony,

    Please note that you are referring to 2 separate giveaways in your post.

    The first giveaway was our Local Area Giveaway (Giveaway 1574). The Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol was guaranteed to deliver a prize to your local TV viewing area or Designated Market Area as defined by Nielsen Media research. This award could have taken place in your city or town since it is within this area.

    The second giveaway you are referring to was the Initials Giveaway (Giveaway 1403). Please note that this giveaway was not awarded on 8/31/2010.

    As detailed in the mailing, in these nationwide contests a separate prize of $100.00 is allocated to each of the 676 unique combinations of two letters in the alphabet. Each timely entrant in the contest is classified by the first and last initials of their name, and assigned to the group of contestants who share the same first and last initials that together form one of these combinations. At contest end, we award a prize for each such combination of letters to a contestant selected at random from among all those with the corresponding initials. In this manner, we are assured that someone with each of the 676 letter combinations or “initials” will win a prize. Full details regarding the contest are set forth in the Official Rules for the mailing and in the disclosure box titled “YOUR INITIALS’ PRIZE AWARD GUARANTEE”.

    In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

I sure hope I am the winner. I look forward to helping people with that money.
Besides from helping around with my community and myself with college debts. I have a plan envisioned for the future.
Instead of spending all that money on me. I rather use it on better investments such as alternative energy. I am a young entrepreneur who has a bright future to help others in every way. So basically the 5k per week for life is not all for me but for those who I may feel need it the most. I plan on making a business as a stock broker and help the needy families. I already have plans set for those people.
