  1. we all need to stop playing their games till they fite the moron and hire some one that can keep it up and running

  2. Good afternoon- Don’t you check out the legitimacy of your advertisers? This apple cider vinegar ad brings you to a link the states it all works better in conjunction with “pure life garcinia” I think, ok and get it, but you also have to buy some coffee supplement all for the trial amount of $11.00. I say ok- get them- no difference- 2 was. later they steal $179.00 from my checking account because I never saw the MINUTE comment that you have to cancel. I call the # I finally found and big surprise- CANNOT get through. So they managed to steal that money from not only me but lots of others, but yet, the ad is still on your site, stealing from God knows how many others!!! I would think that a company of your reputation would do a hellova a better job of monitoring any scams that would try this cheap garbage. Apparently I was very wrong.

  3. Hi please understand I am sorry about complaining. Tonight I was playing Frontpage from PCH and it just stop honoring searches and I could not get my spins for tokens. It also cost me bonus spins because I play everyday but now it will seem like I did not play. Can you make this right please and not penalize me.

  4. For Senior citizens and many others…..there are entirely too many e-mails requiring some sticker to be removed and pasted on a later PCH mailing. This is done way to often and should be eliminated altogether. No wonder we get mailings that someone did not win because they did not return the correct label/sticker on the proper mail item. Having to look for these labels just irritates myself and many others I have talked to. You have heard the term more is less but in this case LESS would mean more orders. It does not take a genius to figure that out. Until such a time that PCH makes things easier…rather that irritatingly complicated…..I will make no more purchases. I can’t believe that anyone thinks the label/sticker be applied on any mailer is a smart thing to do. Whoever came up with that idea should be fired or replaced.
