Publishers Clearing House and McDonald’s – Millionaires in Common!

Unemployed and out of luck – Publishers Clearing House Winners in all types of financial situations have relished in receiving that big check worth anything from $5,000 to $1,000,000. Similarly, there was a recent story about Jonathan Kehoe; a local Wisconsin man who become a “MCMillionaire.” He inherited the title after winning a McDonalds sweepstakes where he scored $1,000,000, – a prize very similar to the Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize!

Kehoe said it was his nephew and limited budget that lead him to McDonalds where he would pick up a snack, and unbeknownst to him, the Million Dollar Prize. If hunger brought that sweepstakes winner to McDonalds, then what brings people to Publishers Clearing House and their online sweepstakes? Current PCHers may have first noticed Publishers Clearing House from the TV commercials, which most recently advertise the PCH sweepstakes prize as $1 Million a year for life (you can enter to win that now, as a matter of fact). Or they could have heard of PCH as a child; maybe while watching other family members “sweeping” through the mail.

Another similarity PCH winners have with the McDonalds sweepstakes is their location! In fact, PCHSearchandWin’s very own Online Marketing Development Coordinator, Danielle Bertellotti, has been to Wisconsin as part of the famous Prize Patrol! She manned the PCH van and travelled with the other members of The Prize Patrol team to deliver a “Big Check” to one of the many lucky winners.

In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway.

    Hi Gail,
    After thinking things over again I Just want to re-write what I said to you..

    I know that you are young & I know that you have previously said that all that win are old..

    But again I say to you, as I say to my own sons who are 33+ 39.

    I was brought up in an time that things were tough, just as they are again today… but I still at 62 years old go back to my memories of ALL that was GOOD when I was a child… Like I said before ” the Wizard of OZ… Jimminy Crickey wishing on a star… WHATEVER it takes to try & keep me hopeing, praying & wishhing for things better in my life..

    My Mom taught me that, even though my Dad disagreed.. He would alwaly say she looked at the world through rose colored glasses..

    He did NOT..

    I have learned through many bad times in my life, that I FEEL better living what my Mother tought me rather than my Dad.. It was a tough road to travel growing up.. & although I totally respected my Dad.. I to this day respect what my MOM was tring to teach me also..even if she did not know it.

    You are YOUNGER, as I can see from you mail.. as my boys, you expect instant gratification..

    ALL us oldies know what this is all about..

    Patience, fortitude, Faith.

    Keep the Faith Gail, but get out from under those covers!!!
    (or change your avitar)

    well said Vickie, !!!

    You have to have a positive attitude with ANY of this or anything in LIFE!!!!

    There are A LOT of people just like you that enter things & do not win .. but the thing to remember is to KEEP the Faith & KEEP hopeing…& keep ENTERING..

    iS THAT NOT WHAT fAITH & HOPE IS ALL ABOUT??
    tHE PIC THAT YOU HAVE ( OR WHATEVER THEY CALL IT ON THE WEB TODAY… IT KIND OF SHOWS THROUGH WITH YOUR E-MAILS.. YOU LYING UNDER THE COVERS…
    yOU HAVE TO GET OUT FROM UNDER THOSE COVERS( OR THE THINGS THAT GET YOU DOWN)

    Remember the Wizard of Oz??? I was brought up on that .. but am NOW again showing my age… “think lovely thoughts & lovely things can happen..”

    oR AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT i WAS TAUGHT..BY MY mOM..
    iT NEVER HAPPENED IN OUR LIVES GROWING UP BUT SHE INSTILLED IN ME THAT FAITH..

    Maureen
