With A Big Check For $5000 A Week For Life What Would You Do First?

A Big Check for $5000 A Week For Life from PCH would be a dream come true!

I’m sure you’ve seen me countless times on TV presenting the ceremonial Big Check to lucky Publishers Clearing House winners.  You’ve seen the surprise, the excitement, the ‘hallelujah’s. But 15 or 30 seconds of commercial time rarely allow you to hear what follows the winning moment – like when I pull the smaller but very REAL check from my pocket and hand it over with words like “This check is as good as gold!  You can go to the mall and start shopping tonight!”

I guess that suggestion of hurrying to the mall conjures up thoughts of going crazy with newfound wealth – at which point the winner laughs and says, “WHOA!  I’ve gotta sit down and think about this before I do something like that.”

Of course that’s a good idea.  Before a shopping spree, most people have bills to pay and long-postponed things around the house that they want to take care of.

For such immediate needs a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House — with lots of zeros in it — can be “just what the doctor ordered.”  What a relief to get that stuff – maybe even a medical concern — out of the way!

Once the “top priority” items have been crossed off the list, then it’s time to have some fun –with a trip to the mall, or a trip to the spa, or a trip to see family, or a trip to Europe, or a trip to wherever you want to go.  Or maybe a trip around town in a brand new car will be as far as you care to go.  With a SuperPrize — like $5000 A Week For Life! — that choice would be yours!

So start thinking about what you’d do if our Prize Patrol knocked on your door and presented you with roses, balloons and a Big Check for $5000 A Week For Life – followed by the REAL check!

But “Whoa” again.  First things first.  Have you taken that essential first step to winning?  Have you entered the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes?  Don’t forget, as the saying goes: “You’ve got to be in it to win it.”

Don’t delay.  Enter the PCH Sweepstakes today – and every day from now ’til August 22nd, the deadline for online sweepstakes entry for a chance to win the PCH $5000 A Week For Life SuperPrize.  Go to pch.com to get started on that trip to winning, and let us know what YOU would do first with a Big Check from Publishers Clearing House.

Wishing you the very best of luck!

Prize Patrol Ambassador

I would buy many cool things from Pch and share them with family and friends as well as help anyone in need. Give back to my church and start a small charity. I would use the freedom to spend more time with my children and wife. And I promise I’ll do my part to try to spark our economy with some spending! Lol

I know some folks would quit their jobs to live out their dreams. I on the other hand have worked with the mentally challenged for over 6 years and can’t see not being able to see my residents in the group home everyday. I also took over the responsibility and upkeep of my mothers home after she passed in 2002. Not realizing all the problems from electrical to plumbing to mushrooms growing up through the basebords in my living room!!!!! Yes no lie. I have pictures. And also mold which i am very worried about. Single mom of two kids wanting to both go to college as well as myself wanting to return to college……This would just be nothing but a blessing, and it will be because I have already claimed it.

The first thing I would do with a big check? I would pay off our home and our cars and then I would do GOD’s work, something that would please God. Understand this I don’ think I would ever get a big check unless GOD wanted me to have it!! Gods Work would be somethning that would please God and that I would have to talke to hime about. Next I would do anything my sweet wife of 30 years would want to do and I mean anything.

Hi PCH If I happen to win I would have more tests done at the vet to find out what is wrong with my bearded dragon “PEENUT”. He has been sick for weeks now and he doesn’t seem to be getting any better. The tests are expensive and I have spent alot on his vet bills already. I hate to see him in pain or the thought of losing him. I am praying for a miracle and I know they do happen.

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi P Keel,

    Sorry to hear about your sick pet. I hope your “PEENUT” feels better soon!

    Please keep in mind that the winner is selected by a random drawing and each entry received has the same chance of winning, so keep trying!

    And remember, a purchase is never necessary to enter or win the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes!

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

First, I would look to replace my 11 year old car, its starting to have costly repairs.
Then start a college fund for our grand daughters. I’m a Shriner, so some will go to our hospitals, my Masonic Lodge, my Church, and the Red Cross. I’m almost a 22 gallon donor..
I belong to several local non-profit organizations, I’ll help them out too.
My wife and I would be able to travel more, since I can’t drive at night, maybe a train trip to our next Navy Reunion.

Hi Dave, The date is getting closer. Where the blank space on the check says, be it known, I would love for my name to be on that line. Smile. Still waiting for you and the prize patrol team to knock at my door. The big check of $5000 a week for life would be a dream come true. I pray for a miracle for the check, balloons, champange and the team to Knock, Knock. Smile. I believe in PCH, and I will have the opportunity to say this is for real. I will be able to give my daughter who has cancer and 17 years old a better chance at life without struggle. Thanking you in advance. From the WTC dispatcher.

Wow, if I was the lucky winner: I would probably turn to my husband and tell him, “See I told you it could happen.” It would be soooo exciting!! Winning would make all the difference in the world to a retired teacher. I now teach at a private shool and would probably give a party to all my wonderful students. I would give to my church, treat my grandchildren and children, and go on a 40th wedding anniversary trip. I might even take my husband. Only after he tells me that I was right.

The first thing I would do is pay off my debt, then help reinovate my family’s church. I would also buy my own home that I need/want to have. My family can live a better life instead of worrying about the cost of groceries,fuel & the increases of household bills.I’m a 23 yr old college student & I rely on federal financial aid to attend, so I could use that money to pay that off.I only work part-time so I don’t make a lot of money. I’m barely making it to cover the basic neccessities for myself and my family.

Hi, both my parents died and out of 4 kids, I was the only one not put into the will; therefore, with the economy as poor as it is and the fact that I’m still unemployed, I’d get myself out of debit, invest in stock market, donate to help fight ID Theft (which I’m currently a victim of), and treat myself as I go…new car and invest in a home.

Iam a single mother of six children we dont have much but we do have jesus and each other. wining 5,000.00 every week for life would mean that I can afford a big enough home for my children and myself.I could afford a home that has windows in it, a home that does not have mold in it, a home that the floor is not caving in. My children will have nice warm beds to sleep in, nice clothes to wear.

If I won the “5000 dollars a week for the rest of my life”, I would spend all of it on poverty and sickness. now ofcoarse I would get myself out of poverty and make sure my daughter Lilly Kaye has a ton of savings for college. I would be similar to Mother Teresa. I would travel the world and spend all of my money on people with nothing. I believe that is the only thing you should do when you have all of that kind of money.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Sincerly,
Troy Richards.

P.S. I play everyday and want to win as well as everyone else.

First, I would probably faint. Second, I would probably act totally out of it! Third, I would have to say WHOA…and show my gratitude and regain my self control!!

After all the excitement… I would first take care of my mother who is 62. She lost my step father 2 years ago and seems like she has given up… She is lost without him and my heart hurts to see her this way. She has helped others and deserves to be helped in return. After taking care of my mother, I would set my childrens college aside, start savings such as CDs for them, take them on a real vacation, and purchase a home and invest in CDs for myself and add to my retirement. I would put the rest in savings to pay off bills, school loans, car loans, medical expenses, and help my eldest sister with her situation . I am sure I could come up with a never ending list;however, this is a start… a very good start indeed!

Good Morning PCH!! It is almost time to see you on TV with the lucky winner. I thank the good LORD the PCH leaders had the forethought to begin giving these mega bucks every year. You, the PCH family is great. You have changed many lives. I would love to be that winner and I have worked hard to make sure that I would have a chance. I also know that there are many who feel the same. If, I am so lucky to be that winner you might have to detour to find me. So, PCH Patrol team, be safe and I will be looking for you. Lord, as always, keep you safe.

Dave is coming to my house on August 31st. I have participated in the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes for over 10 years religiously. If I won $5,000 a week for life I would start with my 10% to my church, then I would help my daughter with her schooling and a car, help my son and his family, pay off my bills so I can be debt free, then I would build a small house for cash. When I was done with all that I would help as many people as I could in many different ways. This would be the best thing that has happened to me in years. The last three years have been the worst of my whole life. Three years ago I lost my home due to my husbands decline in income (he was a mortgage loan officer), I lost my job after 10 years and my son (32 years old) just died 2 months ago. I don’t complain because I believe that everything happens for a reason and when I win it was all in God’s plan.

I am ready for you to knock on my door at my house and waiting on a miracle to happen for my aunt that she lost everything in the fire at her home $5,000.00 every week for life I could rebuild her home and replace everything in it. In addition, I could buy my dad a new car because his air is not working in it. All I can do is pray that you and Dave, Danielle and Todd come to my house on August 31. To make my miracle happen, I will be so excited I might do my Mickey Mouse voice on camera. I hope to see you knocking on my door on August 31 or seeing me at my new job at Cabelas in Ft. Worth Texas. I would take my family on a trip and take my grandpa has acute leukemia cancer on a trip before he dies. I love my family and this money I could help my family out & my aunt replace her new home and everything inside of it. I cannot wait to buy my dad a new car because he needs one real bad. I am ready to get a check and see you at my door knocking at it and me doing a Mickey Mouse voice saying oh boy, I got a check from Dave, Danielle and Todd… God Bless Publishers Clearing House & everyone!

The first thing u would do is get up off the floor then get back down there and thank GOD for our blessings and then start the process of paying off my lease and letting some family members who need this house move in rent free until they can get on they’re feet and also fix the family van up and give it to them because isn’t that what it is all about?

Oh where to even begin. I’m currently living with my best friend and her family (who have a buttload of medical problems). I would buy us all a house since this one is BEYOND repair! The furnace has aspestos in it so we have no heat in the winter. My “mom” has had 11 back surgeries and should be in a wheelchair, my best friend has severe kidney infections/severe rheumatoid arthritis and she’s only 24! I would pay off my student loans and then take us all on a nice vacation since my best friend and her family haven’t been on a real family vacation in 10 years. They’ve been busy with their medical issues/taking care of grandparents/ pretty much taking care of everyone else but themselves. I think it would be really nice to give back to them since they have helped me out so much.

I would thank God, then start a Horse rescue, and open a home for homeless veterans. They gave so much to the united states….fought to keep our country free, but yet a majority of them live on the streets. I’m from Pontotoc Mississippi, and not many people around here are wealthy. So I’m praying to God I have some luck with your sweepstakes!! I would also enjoy life for awhile. I’m getting married september 24th to an amazing woman…and farming barely pays the bills. I would love to take her somewhere awesome for a honeymoon, but most likely I won’t be able to afford it. I’m clinging to august 31st!! Can’t wait to see who wins, I’m lucky to have a roof over my head so, I hope it goes to someone in need for sure… But I’d still like to see the prize patrol!!! :)

First off this would be a dream come true. I have been entering PCH my whole life. I mean it. I entered for my mom when I was a kid and now I have been entering my entire adult life. I do know that nothing in life is free. But I see the people who win even $1,000 can make people happy. I cry when I watch the clips of people winning because it is just a life changing experience. I think I would have a heart attack if I had this happen to me. I do believe that people can win and that is why every day I enter. It could help the future of my family and just make life worth living. To be able to be dept free. That would be Awesome! So, What would I do with $5,000 a week for the rest of my life?? Well I would fix my credit. Help my fiance pay off his car. Save money for taxes because there will be Taxes to pay. Then just save up until I have enough money to build my dream home. I could be a stay at home mom like I always wanted. I can plan and dream but when the time comes who knows what will happen. LIFE!! Thank you

we all wish we can win this kind of money. Because pch have instilled this image in our minds, thanks to them, thank god for them because there the only hope we have. But because of them, we all wish we can win this money, it would be a blessing for you as it would for me. We all would be blessed whoever would win this because we could all use the money right now. But if I won this money, I wouldnt have to say “man!!! I wish that was me!” I would have to say that. I could then have so much stress off my shoulders, pay off all my 2 college loan debt, buy a car, go back to school for nursing because nursing is what I always wanted to do, i just couldnt afford it and love a comfortable life paying off all bills and live life the way it was intended. No-one should be able to suffer financially because thanks to money in this world, things are hard in this world. So if I had this money, I wouldnt have to worry no more and just go by day by day enjoying life. Right now, I cannot go to nursing school, I cant buy a car, I dont have a house, I dont have a job and have monthly bills to pay, its horrible ! but someone has to win right?

Nearing age 86, I don’t believe my future is all that important, but the futures of my Great and Grandchildren are vitally important. Their educations may help to bring this world a whole new outlook for the future. It is sorely needed. So most of what I might be lucky enough to win would go to their education. The remainder to the parents of these Great and Grandchildren who are also aimimg for this purpose….Oh, I might get rid of some of the 15 and 20 year old clothes that I must admit are frayed but comfortable. I have grown very frugal through the years. I don’t think that will change and after reading of the needs of others, I feel very thankful for what I have and for the dreams PCH gives to all of us.

Oh, my goodness, my life would be so different. First, I would tithe. I would save three thousand out of each check. Put a thousand each check on my mortgage and have it paid off in about four months. I would use the remainder to pay my monthly bills and living expenses. Once I got my mortgage paid off, I would buy myself and my son a good, dependable vehicle and pay that thousand each check on the vehicles until they are paid off. Then, I would take a much needed real vacation…which I have never done. Next, I would retire early since I have worked very hard and have lived pay check to pay check all my life. Oh, my goodness, I would have a ball. I would find some families with small children or elderly on fixed income and help by paying their power bills or buying groceries or school clothes for the children (anonymously). I would do something awesome for my dearest friend because she has always always stood by me and because she deserves much more than I can ever do for her. I would take paint lessons. I would buy some awesome exercise equipment for myself and start working out to become healthier. I would be able to do so much good for people who really need a kind deed and a little relief from their daily struggles. There is so much I would be able to do, just little things like send a friend some flowers just because. Or buy my son something awesome for Christmas. But, I have taken up enough space with my dreams. Sometimes, it is these dreams that keep me going. Norman Vincent Peale said Positive Imaging will have positive results on your life. And my Bible says “Ye have not because ye ask not”. And I have endless faith and belief.

I would pray it doesn’t destroy me by not being able to handle the responsibility and pressures that may come with it. How can anyone know what they would do? Most likely, I would be stunned for a while, and snap out of it. Then carefully figure what needs most to be taken care of, and learn of what some folks close to me are in need of. Its got to drastically change your life. I just pray I could handle it wisely. Gene

I would help my family. They have been behind me since I have been down on my luck. I haven’t had that much going for me lately. And I ain’t the best person to live with. But with this type of money I could let them have some of the best things in life. Things I haven’t had and things that they dream of. And things that I dream for them. I never been able to do things for them, but with this type of money I would.

Hey Dave I’m looking forward to win $5,000 a week for life. I have all the thing plan for my future. Of course I probably still would work just to have something to do. I’m kind of disable from head to legs and I been doing pretty good for most of the time. Better then most people with disabilitys. The thing I really want to do is go to some of the country’s. Mainly Orlando because it looks fantasizing and I I love castle. But if I don’t win now I hope some day I will.

Yes, that would definetly be a dream come true. I would really have to let something like that sat it to actually believe it. I would certainly share that wealth with friends and family.
and a lot of less fortunate people.

First, pay off my (too many ) bills, set up a college fund for our two Grand Children. Take my wife on a long vacation, haven’t been anywhere aince my funds ran so darn low. My car is 12 years old, would settle for a good used car, donate money to my Methodist Church, my Masonic Lodge, the Shriners & Hospitals, and the Red Cross, (I need one more pint to get my 22 GALLON PIN) and donate to the Habitat Oganization, and spend some on myself. And donate money to the USS Ashland LSD Reunion Association.

Reshanna Sexton said...

I know I’ll never win it. I mean the odds are very slim.

I’m young and have had a hard life so far, but not as hard as it could have been.

If I did win that $5000 a week for life, though, I would quit working. I’d finish my masters degree in music therapy, reward my mother for all her hard work. She’s always wanted a house-boat. :)

In my free time I would volunteer at Veteran’s Hospitals. My Grandfather was in the United States Air Force, and my boyfriend is currently serving in the Army. Those are the two men I’ve always respected more than any others, and I think I should honor them. Some of our veterans come home missing limbs and can’t even wash their own hair… I’d be honored to do that for them.

I’ve also been homeless twice in my life, and can’t explain how grateful I was to have a shelter to stay in. The group of churches who hosted the homeless shelter I was in last year recently opened a permanent house for local homeless to stay in. I’d love to donate, to help keep that house open.

I’m not saying I wouldn’t live a happy, comfortable life, but I wouldn’t go all out. I’d keep just enough money to live on, and donate everything else.

A different charitable organization for each week.

<3

The only thing I would do is travel across america to homeless shelters and soup kitchens and help as many people as I could before my time is up. It’s hard working and trying to volenteer, but with $5000 a week I could spend my time helping and trying to teach others the hard lessons I had to learn on my own.
Thank You

I would first pay off my dads job he bought a business that he’s struggling to make ends meet to pay of the bills, put food on the table and have a weekend once in a while. Then I would pay for my further education. After that, I would buy my mother a trip to where ever she wanted because she works her butt off everyday to keep money in the bank. Then I would donate to the humane society because I love animals and they deserve a chance. Then I’d donate to the homeless shelter and help kids who don’t have a home to go to. Then I would donate to childrens hospital because they saved my life when I was a child. Then I would put the rest into a savings and retirement fund.

If I won it would change my life and many who I care about.

I would catch up on all of our bills that have added up over the more than 2 years of unemployment and once again begin paying all my bils ahead of schedule. I would pay all of my bills weekly instead of biweekly so things like my 22 remaining yrs of mortgage would be paid off in less than 5 and all of utilities would be paid for years in advance. I would set aside a monthly car payment each week so that next year I could buy a car and actually get the deal they advertise as I’ve always wanted to be that one “well qualified customer” that of course no dealership has ever seen! I would help all of my family on a weekly basis, whether it is college loans, car loans, mortgages, etc. So that everyone could become a “well qualified customer”. And I would donate a weekly paycheck to a couple of charities for whom my wife and I once worked.

I would get medical insurance so that we could afford the hospital bill so that we could have children.
I would buy a house.
I would pay off the remainder of my grandmother’s mortgage (she survives just on social security).
I would fix the church hall.
I would pay off my student loans when I am finished putting myself through college.
I would also pay off my fiances student loans and pay for my brother and sisters to go to college.
I would help out my family who has helped me out throughout the years.

If I were to be the next pch winner, I would pay off my debts first. After that I would start looking for a home for our family as we recently lost ours and are currently living in the basement of a friends home. and although I am very thankful for everything that we have and for the people who have helped us and am blessed to have this. I would like to have my own home again with a swing set in the backyard for my children to enjoy.

First, pay off those debt collectors that are always calling. Then put much of the money into college funds for our grand kids. Then wife and I could take a short vacation for two weeks. I had to retire at 59 years old for a heart problem. I get very little from my employer, I worked for them for 33 years, and saved all I could. I’ve remodeled an old House in Syracuse, new insulation, new insulated windows, wiring, all new plumbing, etc…

I would first, and foremost, update make current my child support that would make a huge differance for me consciously knowing my daughter is getting the help she needs would mean a lot. After that a savings account for my daughter and one for me as well I would put. Ten percent of my weekly earnings in a account for her so when she’s 18 she can be ready for whatever she wants to do. The thought of being able to give her the life that I think she deserves is overwhelming. Next of course pay my truck off and anyone I owe that would be wonderful. Third make the promise I made to my daughter about going to seaworld a reality I want her to believe in me please help pch!!!!! yes, u can do it grant me the PCh Mega prize and ill give my daughter the life that she deserves that would fullfill my dreams.
