A PCH Poem from a PCH Instant Winner

The PCH Prize Patrol never visited Doris. C from Louisville, OH to award her a $10,000 Publishers Clearing House instant win cash prize. The Publishers Clearing House Instant Winner didn’t receive the bouquet of roses or balloons along with her PCH prize. Although her winning moment happened in the online realm, she was probably just as excited to win $10,000 online as anyone could be!

Doris C. is one of the many PCH winners who entered through Publishers Clearing House online properties and can say that they won an instant online sweepstakes. The only difference is that instead of  having the Prize Patrol surprise her in her house or at work, she won $10,000 instantly while playing the Pop&Win game at PCH.com!

PCH Winner Doris C. was so thrilled about instantly winning $10,000 that she voluntarily sent us a short hand-written poem expressing her gratitude for becoming a PCH Winner. We thought it would be an especially nice thing to share this Publishers Clearing House winner’s funny and flattering poem:

To the front door they walk

Quiet as a mouse,

Ring the bell,

Open the door,

Its Publishers Clearing House!

Doris C. $10,000 online winner

Doris C. concluded the PCH poem with “Hope this put a smile on your face – winning $10,000 sure put a big one on mine!!! Thank you PCH!”

While many entrants win, or even more, entrants win through traditional offline letters, Publishers Clearing House has developed many more ways for you to enjoy free entry into its big cash sweepstakes including PCH.com, PCHSearch&Win, and PCHGames.com. I personally think that winning online is a lot like having Dave Sayer of the Prize Patrol magically appear next to you!

If you won a Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes prize, would you personally rather receive the prize online or offline?

Anywhere. It doesn’t matter. A win is a win. Although there are pros and cons of winning online or offline.

Hi Rebecca,
I am confused… as this blog is talking about a Doris C. from Ohio…. I thought Doris Gray is from New Jersey…& sh3e won the 5,000 a year for life??

So that DOES NOT ANSWER Coletts, question!!!

As for YOUR question… I still think the excitement of the Prize Patrol coming knocking at your door is something that I have always wished for…
But it might be nice to be surprised online also…

So again to ask Colette’s question…
How exactly did Doris C. win 10,000.00 instantly ONLINE?
Was this from the NEW pch.com site???
I have been playing that for a while now.. it is FUN & if that is the case for Doris C. congrats to her…

I would love to have that balloon pop that way for me!!! so far I have picked all the wrong ones… but do have entries into (opportunities again)

    Hi Maureen,

    Yes, Doris Gray from New Jersey won $5,000/week for life back in February 2009. The contest in question was a $10,000 prize in which Doris C. from Ohio won by entering online on pch.com. We apologize for any confusion.

    Regards,
    Rod @ PCH

      Thanks Rod,
      but to again bring up Collette’s question… Did she win on the NEW pch.com with the 10,000.00 instant prize attatched to all the 6 other win opportunities ?

      I think that is what Collette was trying to ask…. as she did not know WHAT online game she won on… as we all would like to know….since her poem still talks of the Prize Patrol coming knocking at her door..

Well, all I had said was it really didn’t make any difference to me whether there was the infamous knock on the door or there were bells and whistles online, some money is just so greatly needed right now. I spend everyday persistently entering EVERY sweepstakes opportunity given me whether online or by mail, and I’ll never stop though wins pass me by.

God bless all!

The poeam was cute! There’s nothing like being surprised in person by Dave Sayer and his team when you win a prize. That’s my dream,and I hope that it happens soon! Winning online would be nice as well,but my dream is to have that surprise knock on my door with flowers.Congratulations to Doris C.!!

I forgot to mention Rod,

Maybe there has to be MORE comminication between marketing & customer service, so as to let you guys KNOW of new winners etc.

I know that THEY all know since that is what they are supposed to do & know.. & relay that to us..

You guys might not get wind of the recent winners till later on… ( I know a LOT about customer service jobs.. as I have had a LOT of experience over the years)

But now my answer to the last question about wanting to win online or offline is answered much better..

No- ONe KNEW of this NEW winner excep PCH… & not even the customer service dept.

I like it better when WE the PUBLIC can SEE who wins..

Just my thoughts.
