Online Sweepstakes Help to Beat the Heat

Enter the PCH Online Sweepstakes and 5 other fun ways to stay cool and beat the heat while temperatures are rising!

Summer is here, and one thing is certain: it’s hot, hot, hot! Here in Long Island, New York, home of our Prize Patrol and Online Sweepstakes headquarters, the temperatures are rising like crazy. Just last week, the heat index was up to a whopping 115° F! I don’t know about you, but I just can’t handle the heat wave. I’ll be outside for only a minute and already be dripping with sweat! That’s why I prefer to stay cool inside and beat the heat with fun indoor activities.

Now I know you must be thinking…“I can’t possibly watch any more TV” or “why would I ever want to pick up a book?” But I’ve got news for you: there’s so much more to do inside than watching TV or reading a book. And what I’ve got in mind will not only help you beat the heat and stay entertained for hours…it could also lead you to win big money in our Online Sweepstakes!

Ready for it? Drum roll please…Here are my top five ways to have fun and stay cool during this heat wave:

1)     Get gaming at PCH Games! You’ll find arcade games, card games, casino games, social games, sports games, strategy games and more – and did I mention they’re all absolutely free?

2)     Get scratch happy at PCH Lotto! You’ll find awesome scratch cards, including my summer favorite “Beat-the-Heat Riches” – and you guessed it, they’re all absolutely free!

3)     Get connected on the PCH Facebook Fan Page! You’ll find other fabulous PCH fans like you and stay up to date with all the latest Prize Patrol news!

4)     Get searching at PCHSearch&Win! You’ll find everything you need to know on this cool search engine. (Hey, you could even look up the 5-day weather forecast to see if the temperatures are rising even more!)

5)     Get shopping at pch.com! You’ll find everything on your wish list – I’m talking jewelry, kitchenware, DVDs and CDs, tools and more – all at big, big savings!

The best part of my top five is that they all give you chances to enter to win big money in our Online Sweepstakes! And what better way is there to stay cool in a heat wave than with a cool blast of cash?

So next time the temperatures are rising, instead of melting away outside, beat the heat with any of our PCH websites! You’ll stay cool, and you could end up winning big money in our Online Sweepstakes!

Hello! Amanda C. – I guess you and I are on the same page… although, it didn’t take the heat to make me want to go to the various links posted in your message for PCH fun… its an automatic thing… there are very few places that you can go to now and days for “FREE-FUN”… and, why not stay cool in the process… you girls/guys at PCH have made it all too easy for people like me… and, since I’ve been out of work… why not have some fun… it (PCH.com) is actually a stress reliever in fact I know it is… it somehow takes away a lot of tension… I’m an optimistic person and a very happy one, too! I just keep believing that something huge/wonderful is about to take place… don’t know what it is… but, did I tell you that it will be huge… at least I hope…so! Thanks for the summertime entertainment and fun! Have a great remaining summer… and, may the northern winds blow you a cool and gentle breeze! Peace.

Thank You Amanda it’s boiling here in Sunny Florida and PCH is the perfect way to beat the heat and any other pass time, any day of the week. I’ve had a few obstacles to climb the last few weeks but PCH keeps reviving me and renewing my will to hope and dream big. PCH has truly been an inspiration to me.

    Best of luck to you!

I spent 10000s, an 10000 of tokens in hope to receve a wallmart card.Nothing ever happens ,even the pchserch is a boagess deal.I have had it.your games suck.Im moving to candyland.com at lease they have good games to play and the same chance to win.I’ll still reg. for the sweepstakes.pchgames needs a over haul,fire everybody.Tucson,Az 8-5-2011

It is starting to cool off, but it is starting to heat up; especially when everyone is in heat of money. Needing to pay bills, buy food, put gas in car for drive to work (if you are still have one), or maybe doctors office, some are parents needing to put clothes on their child(ren) body, as well as themselves. Well, whatever the case may everyone is well deserving to have a struck of luck some day. I believe in God will, and if you can still dream you have hope. To everyone who is of a deserving dream keep believing, and sip on a cold glass of lemonade.

I pray that I win publishers clearing house $5000 a week for life! My name is Parish Mack and I live in Savannah GA. I go back to school Augut 22nd I will be a senior this year. The reason I want to win this because I’m gettting an apartment on August 15. I will have enough money for this month with the rent and utilities but I don’t know about next month. It’s going to be hard trying to go to school, work, and pay these bills. I just pray that this will be my blessing. I know if I get chosen on the 22nd (special early look), I will be sooo happy. I wouldn’t have to worry about nothing. I can save up for a car, for college, and help my family out.I will especially help out the people who helped me at Gulfstream when I didn’t have a ride, they would pick me up or if I didn’t have enough money for something, they look out for me. I feel bad sometimes though because I can’t return the favor. Well..will be looking forward to you guys coming to my apartment (or job) on the 31st!

I go on this facebook page every day and put in my entries every day in hopes of winning $5000 a week for life. I really do pray that I win this because school is coming up soon (August 22), and I don’t want to worry about paying this rent and utilies. I will be a senior this year in high school. It is going to be hard for me working, try to pay these bills, and go to school at the same time but I have to do it. If and when I win this, it will help me out tremendously. I can buy more school clothes, buy some stuff for this apartment, save up for a car, save up for college, and help my family out and the people who helped me out who saw that I was struggling.

Has anyone even looked at the odds for winning any of the game prizes? The odds of winning those PCH online games is astronomical. In many cases you would be better off playing the lottery. Next time you’re playing click on the odds and see for yourself.
