An Instant Winner Shares Her PCH Story

For this week’s featured PCHSearch&Win Instant Winner, I chose avid shopper Vicki P., from Markle, IN, who has been commenting on the PCHblog and the new PCHSearch&Win blog.  More importantly, Vickie is an avid user of PCHSearch&Win and Shop&Win.

In June 2010, Vickie P. started using PCHSearch&Win as her primary search engine. Specifically, she said that she started using PCHSearch&Win “…when I decided to read all of the PCH information found on my search page while searching for PCH.COM to complete an entry for the $5000 A Week For Life Sweepstakes, as seen on TV.” Since making PCHSeach&Win her search engine of choice, Vickie P. has been an instant winner several times! With multiple recent wins she ends up filling out two Winner Surveys. Vickie P. has made PCHSearch&Win her home page as well.

PCHSearch&Win was the source of Vickie P.’s first win, which was fantastic for her since she loves to shop while she maintains the philosophy, “Why not spend money where I can win money, too.” As a grandmother of six, having won some ShopandWin gift cards instantly from PCHSearch&Win, she was able to do all of her Christmas shopping at ShopandWin.com! Among her favorite ShopandWin products are the Ashely 6359 Rug, which she describes as, “gorgeous and of excellent quality,” and the jewelry.

“I have always recommended the PCH Search Engine. It is accurate and brings up truly relevant sites in my first search!” Vickie P. explains. Since this instant winner uses multiple PCH sites like PCHSearch&Win and ShopandWin, she called Publishers Clearing House, “A professional, successful and innovative organization.” Now that’s a compliment we enjoy hearing!

Vickie P. also visits us on Facebook, where she mentioned that she became a fan of PCH and entered the exclusive $1,000 sweepstakes. Why not do the same; stop by our PCH fan page anytime and say, “Hello!” Better yet, enter a sweepstakes, too!

Thanks for all of your participation Vickie P.! And, we look forward to yours, too!

The “Prize” Queen

“Why not spend money where I can win money, too.” I like that statement.

“$5000 A Week For Life,” sounds even better:)

Thanks Prize Queen! I do enjoy ALL of the PCH Sites. I am usually a winner Playing Backgammon at pchgames.com; I like to check in at FACEBOOK/PCH to see what’s hapnin’.
I truly discovered ALL that PCH Offers after an In Home accident, which tried to ‘do me in’, but I guess God needs me more here.
I HAVE READ THE HISTORY OF PCH and highly recommend you all read it when you get the chance.
You will learn how a small mom and pop organization became a large, successful and caring organization. Stories like their’s should give you encouragement should you have the desire to open your own business. Hard Work, honesty and caring about the reputation you put forth is part of what it takes and PCH has proven they’ve got what it takes!

Thanks PCH !!!

Hi Nancy,

Please let me clarify what I meant in that comment.

I have 6 grandaughters who I am going to buy Christmas and Birthdays for, what ever else I must sacrifice. Therefore I shop at SHOPandWIN where I can win E-Gift Certificates PLUS I have won real Checks (Money) from PCH, which in turn helps me to afford those gifts that I wish to purchase. I also register everday to win the $10K shopping Spree Sweepstakes.

I have also found some truly amazing deals by looking at the SHOPandWIN DEAL(s) of the DAY EVERYDAY.

It cost NOTHING to ENTER EVERYDAY, so please do yourselves a favor and browse SHOPandWIN everyday, you never know when it’s YOUR TIME to WIN.

Vickie P

    Hi Alice,

    Each entry received has an equal chance of winning and we never know who our next winner may be. At Publishers Clearing House our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased and is conducted by independent auditors and Giveaway Supervisors. We have no way of determining who our winners may be or where they may come from.

    Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. 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.

    Please be assured, if you are one of our lucky 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.

    To determine which draws you are entering, when their end dates are and what your odds of winning are, please review the “Sweepstakes Facts” pamphlet that came with your entry or click on the “Sweepstakes Facts” link on your online entry form.

    And remember, at Publishers Clearing House no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win!

    Best of luck in the sweepstakes!
    Jodi @ PCH

what about the stuff that gets mailed out for winners that have been selected?? I have had it a hundred times and never won. Just 2 weeks ago I got one that said I was in the finals for BIG money and it also had an instant win attached. All my numbers matched up so I should have won $500 in instant win. I have heard nothing so far.
