Winning Moments; How do They Happen?

Winning is invigorating; it’s a moment where you feel like nothing can stop you. And nobody knows what winning is like more than Publishers Clearing House, who offers huge prizes like $5,000 a week for life or $1,000,000.

Although I’ve only won a $25 gift card from Bloomingdales out of a vending machine at one of their special events; it felt amazing. I remember the rush of adrenalin dizzying me as the metal crane came down onto the box, and the way I screeched and hugged my friend after I opened it to reveal the free card. Every time I look into my wallet, I still see that gift card, though. Maybe it’s because I can’t figure out what to spend it on, or maybe because it reminds me of that winning moment. I never want to let that go!

Publishers Clearing House as a whole was built to give people who enter offline and online contests and sweepstakes that glorious winning moment. That’s why the Prize Patrol records each SuperPrize winner’s reaction and posts it on PCHTV.com; so others can share that “Winning Moment,” where winners are awarded big money! Once you see the reactions, which range from hysterical to tear-jerking, you may feel closer to winning than ever!

Recreating the special winning moment is also why PCH offers tons of contests and sweepstakes with different prizes. Speaking of winning online sweepstakes, Publishers Clearing House awards people who live in places ranging from the most solitary places to famous urban cities. The range of winners spans so wide, we wish everyone could win at once just to hear America as a whole screech in joy, just like I did when winning that Bloomingdales Gift Card!

You should share one of YOUR winning moments on our Facebook Fan Page, whether it’s from PCH or not, just to spread the feeling.

“Prize” Queen you know you can use your gift card at Bloomingdales and they will give you back your card when you use it to keep the memory alive when you won it. That way you could have an actually souvenir from Bloomingdale’s of your winning moment… I wonder if you can do the same when you get a check from PCH-cash it BUT keep it to put in a frame? Maybe you should put the winning amount on a gift card instead of a check?~just kidding
The other day I went into my wallet to get my Sam’s Club Card and there was not one put 2 cards that PCH said to keep and when the day of the drawing call this number. I laughed at myself that I had actually put them in my wallet..but I never called..just like you I was keeping this as a souvenir…
Life is too funny at times.
“Have a Great Day everyone!” *smile*

It is only by chance that I am reading this blog right this minute and OPENING MY MAIL.

To my GREAT SURPRISE I am HOLDING, in My VERY OWN HAND, A CHECK, A REAL CHECK !, from none other than PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE included with a letter telling me I am a WINNER in a PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE SWEEPSTAKES !! THIS IS NO SCAM !

I have stated in other PCH Blogs that I had won gift cards while shopping at the new PCH SHOPandWIN.com. I was fully expecting to receive these gift cards, and had not really figured out how I was going to use them, as a couple were to restaurants and the others to other shopping sites that I never really frequent.

What I TRULY NEEDED RIGHT NOW is MONEY; even though I would have gladly accepted the gift cards, and would have given them to friends and family that could have used them better than I right this minute in time.

THANK YOU PCH for the ALTERNATE PRIZE of CASH MONEY.!! I am $70 Dollars richer as we ‘Speak’; THANKS to PCH.
To TOP THIS, THIS is the FIRST TIME In MY LIFE WINNING ANYTHING. I have EARNED things before, but never just out and out WON them BEFORE ! I do NOT have to give my check to my Credit Union to Deposit it.

I get to KEEP IT and FRAME IT ! You see my Credit Union is very technologically advanced, and because my Printer is an all in one, including a scanner, all I have to do is SCAN my PCH CHECK into my computer and link it to my Credit Union and my deposit (winnings) are there.

I have to call people right now and tell them what I received in the mail today!

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH PCH.
IT PAYS to be A PCH FAN in more ways than one !!!

Hi AGAIN,

I was just BROWSING PCH SHOPandWIN.com, looking at the DEAL(s) of the DAY, when I saw that the REMARKABLE
Neckline SLIMMER is listed under the heading of Deal of the Day.

I BOUGHT MY Neckline Slimmer from PCH TWO years ago from a sweepstkes mailing. (not from SHopandWin, Darn it, and I paid a $29.99 for it then).

HOWEVER, LADIES (and GENTLEMEN) I want you to know that this NECKLINE SLIMMER REALLY WORKS GREAT in TIGHTENING UP what I used to call my ‘turkey neck’. You know that bit of flabby skin that begins to droop once we reach the age of Forty and then gravity tends to pull it down even further.

My ‘turkey neck’ is ALL GONE and it helps to make me look 20 years younger !! I PROMISE !! Secret Number One
(My husband is 14 years younger than I am, and people think I am younger than he is! HE will be 44 on 2/13/2011 and I am 57.

I’ll let you in on another little secret, the NECK SLIMMER ALSO helps to TIGHTEN our (once) flabby upper arms too, Just place the base against your side, aligned directly with your upper arm, and then squeeze the Neck Slimmer back and forth; about 10-20 repetions a day is what I do, on each side) This has completely reduced and tightened my upper arms as well, even though it is not advertised for this. But IT WORKS, or at least it did for me and I’ll BET it just might WORK FOR YOU TOO.

Remember, the Deal of the DAY is ONLY GOOD during the 24 Hours of the day it appears as the DEAL of the DAY, SO HURRY, GET YOURS TODAY, then make it a part of you daily exercise routine. You can even do these easy exercises while you are SHOPPING with SHOPandWIN or Playing Games at pchgames.com.
I could not copy and paste the picture, but here is the pricing directly from SHOPandWIN TODAY 01/20/2011.

I AM PRESCHOOL TEACHER BUT WAS LAID OFF RECENTLY AND CANNOT FIND ANOTHER POSITION TO SAVE MY LIFE, WE LIVE IN THE MOST HORRIBLY ECONOMICALLY WORST HIT CITY IN THE US, LAS VEGAS HAS THE WORST UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IN THE COUNTRY-THERE ARE NO JOBS, AND WE HAVE THE WORST FORECLOSURE RATE IN THE COUNTRY…

I FEEL MY LIFE CHANGING, I SENSE THAT SOMETHING UNBELIVABLE WILL HAPPEN TO ME…

    My dear Gina, I love your attitude. Besides being humble I like the fact that you are a dreamer, a believer,and hopeful. Remember the song the impossible dream, there is truth to it. keep that faith and hope. and when you win the big one you will then practice charity because these three virtues belong together. My promise to you (promises are not made to be broken) If GOD wills I win the big one I will give you a thousand dollars. I haven’t meet you in person but I know you have a good heart. It is okey to dream before reaching your goal. An artist makes a sketch first before he draws. I also pledge to give the same amount to four other bloggers and posters..This is only if I win the big one. If I could make you five happy then I would also be very happy. Atleast I can do something generous and fulfilling in the name of CHRISTIANITY. Since the PRIZE PATROL emphatically stated they wont take any tip from a winner therefore I will do this instead. I believe in giving and sharing to the deserving. Anyway I really sincerely wish you the best of good luck and good health and abundant blessings from the DIVINE ALMIGHTY. The same wish goes to everyone to the other bloggers and to everyone who participates and show their interests in the PCH Sweepstakes.Keep on dreaming, hoping and believing..

Actually it’s highly unlikely that I would win 1000,000.00 a year for life. If I do win in some weird luck. The first order of business my father would get his share, 1500.00 twice for first week, then 1000.00 every two weeks, plus 800.00 cash every month. Considering that he buys cord of wood every month to heat his home.
I can load the funds on prepaid credit card via through the northern store. All I need is the number of prepaid credit care.

This all sounds so great and exciting. I have never won even a red cent off of the computer, so it would really be exciting for me if I won something. These are such wonderful gifts like no one ever gives away. I would never in a life time receive anything like this. If I do, I would forever be grateful.

It would be something unbelievable! Wyvonne

    Hi Richelle, Every entry has an equal chance of winning. The more you enter, the more chances you will have. Some have won on their first entry, while others have won after years of entering. It’s all in the luck of the draw as to which entry will be randomly selected as the winner. Best of luck,
    Deborah @ PCH

I love PCH search engine…I have gotten alot of useful information from this site. It also gives me a chance daily to win the BIG prizes. The best part is I don’t have to fill out a bunch of forms and then mail them in by deadlines. Thank You PCHSEARCH.COM
