PCHSearchandWin Helps Financial Planning for $500 Fast Cash!

With the New Year upon PCHSearchandWin users, money issues may be lingering for most of us. PCHSearchandWin always try to help by offering tons of useful PCHSearchandWin prizes. Still, some may believe in a curse of the lottery where a lottery winner loses all of his or her winnings rather quickly and sometimes even goes into debt. From analyzing those situations I think that it was not caused by black magic, but most likely because the winner lacked some basic personal finance skills. The PCHSearchandWin team would love to share some basic tips with you!

Personal finance tips are something we could all use – especially if you would be one of the many instant winners who use PCHSearchandWin. For example, how would you spend the $500.00? Did you know someone will win $500 Fast Cash from PCHSearchandWin today?

If I was eligible to win a PCHSearchandWin instant win contest, I would set up a plan to stretch the prize money as far as I could. My first personal finance tip would be to split it into portions. The largest part should be put in a bank CD or savings account to grow. Then I would invest long-term in a company that I believe will be very successful in the future (hopefully I would be able to at least double it in a few years). Lastly, with the PCHSearchandWin prize, I would pay off some bills, and if I had a little left over, buy a little extra something for myself and those around me.

Of course, a SuperPrize would probably take more financial expertise; likely given by an expert. But no matter how much you make, I think it’s important to be smart about where your money goes and to always think of the future.

I also personally know that the PCHSearchandWin team is always one step ahead of planning prizes for searchers every day, well into the next month. They also love to hear what PCHSearchandWin searchers are looking to win so they can accommodate them and make the PCHSearchandWin experience all the more fruitful.

If you want to win it, you better speak up and ask for it!

The “BIGGEST” Mystery on this Blog is who is The “Prize” Queen
but at least I can rule out Dave, Todd and Frank on this one…
$500.00 is alot of money but frankly not enough to invest in-I would use that money for “The Smile Train”- It costs as little as $250 to give a desperate child with a cleft lip and palate not just a new smile, but a new life and everyone deserves to *smile* in their lives. And on that note..”Have a GREAT DAY everyone!”

$ 500 is not enough to pays off my bills neither to invest to. but $ 500 could help me in a better way, because health is the most important thing in people life. i could use it to go to the doctor’s office and have some tests done. i’ve been sick since the past months but never be able to see a dotor because i don’t have the $100 consultation. i don’t have insurance.
if i could have it it will help me a lot.

I pray that I may win $1 Million a Year for Life SuperPrize on February 28th plus a $55,000 bonus along with it. I’ve never won any sweepstakes from PCH to date, so hopefully, GOD may bless me and help me win the SuperPrize on the 28th of February. May GOD bless everyone at PCH also.

Will giveaway 1400 be a random drawling or number drawling? Is a winner guarantied? If so what are the prizes up for grabs $10,000.00 , $1,000.00 or what? Giveaway 1400 deadline is Feb 28 and giveway 1830 early look is for the same date. Will there be two winners?

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

    Hi Martinez,

    A winner is guaranteed on draw 1400 on 02/29/2012. It may be awarded sooner. The prizes in February are early look draws which are not guaranteed. In the case of an early look drawing, a SuperPrize number is picked randomly. If it matches the number on an entry received, the prize is awarded. If it does not, it will roll over to the next early look date. If it is not awarded on any of the early look dates, it will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

    Regards,
    Chris @ PCH

“Queen” you are gonna have to tell me where you Bank. Most Banks and Credit Unions require a minimum of $500 to open a CD. That would take the entire $500 prize for a CD. You also forgot about taxes that you have to Pay the IRS and State depending on where you live. What little you made in the CD in a year would not even cover the taxes on that amount.

Martinez Winston said...

Any money is good, but i wish PCH would clarify all the amounts of prizes for that giveaway or giveaways on that date.Thank you for letting me voice my opinion. For exaple you got giveaway 1400 thats ends on Feb 29th and a sneak look at giveaway 1830 on Feb 28th. That means there should be two winners in Febuary giveaway 1400 being guarantied.

I think everyone has to come to realize, just like I have in the rules. etc. that there are probably 2 billion big long number combinations that PCH puts together.. ONE is picked for the SUPER PRIZE, they send out all these invitations out to win…. some come back some do not.. so our chances are still probably 3 billion to one to win…

but i am a positive person 7 will still keep the faith,,

Hey Ya’ll, I NOW KNOW that the Famous PCH PRIZE PATROL WILL BE COMING, if not to my home, it will be somewhere in INDIANA.

Of Course, I want to beleive they will be coming to my home.Please read all of my post for some very INTERESTING NEWS.

But for now, Back to the Blog subject at hand…
A few months ago, I did go on-line to research information about TAXES, INVESTING and how to make the MOST of a SWEEPSTAKES WIN. I recommend that you all do it too, as you just NEVER KNOW ! Here is just One thing I learned.

Some people beleive that you do NOT have to pay taxes on winnings that are less than $600.

This, in the eyes of U.S. Taxation and IRS LAW is NOT TRUE. A sponsor does NOT have to send out or provide a 1099 form to a winner of less than $600, however ANY WINNINGS is considered income and must be reported as such on your tax return. (I wonder how many people actually DO report winnings of less than $600; if the sponsor does NOT send out a 1099 form. To be honest, I DID WIN $5. or my choice of a FANDANGO Movie Ticket one day while I was using my regular, everyday search engine, which happens to be PCHSEARCHandWIN. Please don’t tell, but I do not think I am gong to report ths win (LOL). ANYWAY, it is good to have a plan for the ‘JUST In CASES’ in your life.

Now Back to HOW I (chose to) KNOW that the Famous PCH Prize Patrol will be coming to Indiana Soon.

I am told that really NEAT or UNUSUAL things happen in 3(S).
Well, the most UNUSUAL thing happened this morning at 7:55 A.M. in Indiana, which SHOOK ME AWAKE. I CHOOSE to take as a SIGN that the famous PCH PRIZE PATROL will be here and very soon. (A GIRL CAN DREAM CAN’T SHE?)

GUESS WHAT ! at 7:55 A.M (EST)THIS MORNING
An EARTHQUAKE !!! rolled through Indiana.
Yep, a 4.2 on the reichter (sp?) scale– actual EARTHQUAKE !
I have a difficult time sleeping in bed due my disabilities, so I sleep in my recliner in the living room.
Late last night, (actually at 3:A.M., I had a horrble headache and was sick to my stomach. I thought I had come down with a 24 hour bug or something similar. Anyway, I feel asleep around 3 A.M. and was SHAKEN awake this morning at 7:55. A.M. I called out to my husband who (LOVE HIS SOUL)sleeps in the recliner next to me so that we can be together. This sudden SHAKING scared me !It went on for approximately 23 seconds (that can be a long time for something like this)
My chair actually ‘walked’ forward; with me in it, and this is no light weight recliner. My dogs began to bark just seconds before the shaking began. IT WAS WEIRD.
My headache is gone and my stomach feels ok now too. I read that these symptoms can be an idication of an Earthquake

The epicenter of this Quake is about 36 miles from our home.
Once I gathered my wits, I turned on the TV to our Local News channel. They were still gathering information, however did confirm that an Earthquake, had indeed, rocked North Central Indiana. As far as I know, no one has been hurt, and there is no great damage anywhere. We have been told that this was a MILD or LIGHT Earthquake, and that this MAY HAVE BEEN a pre-emptive shake with a much larger Quake looming over the next few hours, days, or even a few months from now. This too is weird to hear.
There is a very small fault line that runs within the Wabash River, and near our home, but this is NOT where the CENTER of this QUAKE was.

This event has been reviewed by a seismologist., here is his report:

Magnitude 4.2
Date-Time Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 12:55:21 UTC
Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 07:55:21 AM at epicenter
Time of Earthquake in other Time Zones

Location 40.427°N, 85.888°W
Depth 4.9 km (3.0 miles) set by location program
Region INDIANA
Distances 20 km (15 miles) ESE of Kokomo, Indiana
20 km (15 miles) WSW of Marion, Indiana
40 km (25 miles) S of Wabash, Indiana
75 km (50 miles) NNE of INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana

Location Uncertainty Error estimate not available
Parameters NST= 88, Nph= 88, Dmin=102.9 km, Rmss=0 sec, Gp= 32°,
M-type=regional moment magnitude (Mw), Version=7
Source USGS National Earthquake Information Service, Golden, Colorado, USA

Event ID usc0000x03

NOW BACK to how I KNOW (WISH and DREAM) the PCH Prize Patrol will be in Indiana (my home?) soon. THIS EARTHQUAKE is the SECOND UNUSUAL and UNEXPECTED (and MYSTICAL) thing that has happened in the past two days. The other, which happened last night is; we received a phone call from my Father-In-Law. While most of you may wonder UNEXPECTED; Well you see, my Father-In-Law has laid in the Intensive Care Unit of the V.A. Hospital in Indianapolis, IN for the last three weeks. He cannot breathe on his own. We were told by the Doctors’ to prepare for the worst, because they tried weining him off of the respirator and it was not working. He could not breath. He has ‘fibrosis’, a disease that bascially ‘kills’ your lungs. We were told that his ONLY hope was a Lung Transplant, however because he had an infection in his lungs; that would NOT clear up; no matter what they tried, the Doctors’ felt he should get his business in order.

We did not keep him on the phone for a long time, however my Husband now feels, for the first time in weeks, that he may not lose his father so soon. THE INFECTION IS GONE ! Even though he must still wear an oxygen mask all of the time now, he now has a chance of survival, while we wait for matching lungs.

SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW when I write, TWO, VERY POWERFUL, VERY UNEXPECTED things have happened for us in the last two days. It would be a POWERFUL and UNEXPECTED thing should the Prize Patrol make an appearance well.

My dogs just began to bark, and I heard a ‘bang’ sort of noise just now, same noise as this A.M.. I am going to sign off now. I will keep you informed. Bye for Now.

    Hello PCh, I agree with what Vickie say’s and I have a 1099 that I’m currently having to address and take care as well. I’m by far not the most perfect person,Winning the Super prize from 1830 would make changing my life and lifestyle to becoming a better person possible! I dream the dream , and pray each day that somehow somewhere , that door will open , Thank you Pch for giving me a chance to change my life so I could be a better person and help others around me as well. I Want to Win 1830 or any Super prize!! I would indeed first call my lawyer , then a financial adviser, next pay all my debts and Taxes, then Id get health insurance for my children and self and finally get my facet joints fixed so I wouldn’t need medicine , I get my kids health and dental needs fixed as well,l then would help my extended family even though I don’t get to see them I miss and love each and every one of them, especially my mom, It would feel so good to know I was able to help them and thank her for giving me life as well. I would also Lay my husband to rest. I haven’t been able afford to follow through with his request of spreading his ashes where he used to scuba dive.And A VERY IMPORTANT DESIRE AND NEED WOULD BE CHARITY, I would invest so the money could continue to grow and I would hire only the best to invest and educate myself in the investment field as well, and properly open a community resource center for the indigent and a center for our teens providing various resources for guidance , counseling and help with direction and support for their future, etc. I would research what our community needs as well as our schools and see where I could help .It would be something to help the community and help those less fortunate, Then Education Yeah! for the first time id be able to work with our government to see where i could help. It would simply come down to finally being able to implement changes for the better! for myself, family and community…. Thank you Pch for possibilities and a chance at living a DREAM, god Bless and Happy new year!

      i wish each & every pch blogger out there ALL the best of luck.. & hope that whoever wins will think about the OH so many less fortunate today in this economy to help SHARE the wealth.. as I would do also..

      If someone is SOO lucky to win 1 million a year for life.. think of ALL the things that you you could do to HELP!!!!
      Would you actually NEED 1 million a year to live comfortably in the life you live now?? & still better your life?

      Think of all you could do to help others also!!!

      All the less fortunate.. all the special needs children today..

      It would be a way to make the monies in this world flow in the right directions.. the way they should be going rather than the way they are going now..

      just my thoughts, but thank you Tifany for your input..
      A Happy , Healthy New Year to all..

If I won $500, I would use that to fix the roof of my home. I have been renting for a little over 6 years now, and I have had a leak in 6 different areas of my house for the past 3 years. With the heavy rain, and our flat roof, the water has came through and is ruining our stuff. It has ruined our computer desk, laptop, wooden floors and etc. For the past couple of days, I have noticed mold from the leaks and I am worried about my 18 month old daughter breathing that in. So if I was to win the $500, I would fix our roof. :)

    Hi Lonna, Publishers Clearing House is a legitimate business. All prizes are awarded as advertised and the winners are REAL people who entered the sweepstakes, not actors. You can go to http://pchtv.com to see videos of real PCH winners. There is no purchase or fee necessary to enter and win, and a purchase won’t improve an individual’s chance of winning. The winners are selected at random. We don’t know ahead of time who the winner is. Every promotion contains Sweepstakes Facts which list the giveaways and the odds of winning.

    Hi Annah,

    Each day PCH Search & Win’s prize program chooses a bunch of winning times (usually several per hour). The first person to search after a winning time wins the prize. If you were not the first person to search at this time, you would not be selected as the winner. The most recent winners are displayed in the scrolling banner on our homepage.

    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.

    On the first search that you perform on any given day, you will receive an entry into our sweepstakes. Please be assured, if you are one of our sweepstakes winners you will definitely be notified. If you are picked as a winner of a prize of $10,000 or more, you will be notified in person by the Prize Patrol. Prizes of under $10,000 are notified by certified mail or by courier. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched. Our most recent winners can be found on the top of our web site on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at: http://www.pchtv.com.

If I won the $500.00 I would use it to help me find a decent apartment, but if I won the $5000.00 I would repair my home, either way the money would make my life easier because I am a disabled senior citizen.

I would be so happy to win and really need to pay so many bills off. it could be a blessing and being a senior and retire and not having any other income other then Social Security, can be so difficult to pay and live on such little income. Being in this situation can be a hard. So yes I would love to win and have a little extra income to put a side and live on.

Thank you,
