First Time’s a Charm For Ray Randall!

According to the old adage, practice makes perfect. But Ray Randall became a Publishers Clearing House winner the first time he entered! How’s that for good luck?

Eighty-one year old Ray has been retired from Nabisco for 32 years and lives with his wife in Twin Falls, Idaho. He has received letters from Publishers Clearing House in the past, but never actually entered the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. But this time was different. When he got a letter from Publishers Clearing House ― he entered! He’s not exactly sure what made him change his mind. “I decided I’ll do it and maybe something will come of it,” he said.

AND IT CERTAINLY DID!

Ray received a letter from Publishers Clearing House via UPS informing him that he had won at least $1,000.00 and was in the running to win a Millionaire-Making SuperPrize on August 31st! He admits that he was a little skeptical at first, but he soon realized it was for real. Although the August 31st SuperPrize ended up going to Larry Brown of Granite City, IL, Ray is very pleased with his $1,000.00 winnings!

As for his exciting Cash Prize, Ray plans on using it for expenses. When asked what he’d tell his friends about Publishers Clearing House, Ray replied, “Give it a try!”

Ray got his winning entry by responding through the mail ― but you could enter the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes online … and it just takes seconds.  In fact, it’s easy to get daily entries for Publishers Clearing House prizes at our family of websites including: PCH.com, PCHSearch.com, PCHlotto.com, and more!

The moral of Ray’s story: Stop thinking about entering … and do it!  There’s no time like the present, after all…

IF YOU DON’T ENTER, YOU CAN’T WIN!

Good luck!

Hello ALL @ PCH…

HOORAY FOR RAY!!!

Now, i must say, for the life of me i cannot believe people will use this space to display such negative attitudes…just because YOU haven’t won – Y E T
(which means You’re Elligible Too)!

Like the PCH Folks keep telling you all, “if you don’t play, you can’t win”!!! So, quit bad-mouthing the PCH folks!

Take it from me, entering any of the PCH sweepstakes is NOT a waste of time, stamps, paper, etc, like “S” said above!!!

So, PCH, Keep Up The Good Work! It’s soooo FUN!!! jh

    Hi Gladys,

    You never have to buy anything to enter. On http://www.PCH.com, the pages you see are just suggesting things that you might be interested in. You can still enter after you’ve skipped all of these pages. If you don’t want to make a purchase, click the “next” option on the bottom of the screen until it brings you to the entry page.

    And on PCHSearch&Win, don’t search for your name! Use it to find any information you would like (recipes, directions, online stores, etc). If you’re logged in and you search, then be assured that you are being entered for a chance to win.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi Amanda,

    PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope!

Nakita Coelho-Villiarimo said...

Aloha, I pray and manifest positive thinking in hopes to become PCHs next winner. I canʻt begin to explain how helpful winning would be. One thing I can assure is that whatever the outcome may be that I will remain humble and blessed for the opportunity. Iʻve been notified by PCH that they know local TV stations, florist and hotels close to my area. I am thrilled, but what does it mean? Have you ever had a winner from Hawaii? Also, How many times can I mail in an entry?

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Nakita,

    The PCH Prize Patrol has surprised winners in Hawaii. You can mail in as many entries as you’d like as long as they are mailed separately. That notification about the TV stations and flower shops means that if you were to be the winner, the Prize Patrol would know where to get the flowers and who they should contact from your local area media on the day of prize delivery.

Why does it seem only older people win? Does anyone in there 20′s or 30′s ever win? If so….I’ve never heard of anyone.I keep getting emails saying I’m a winner… fill out one more entry. REALLY???!!! How many times do I have to enter??? I’m just true to find out if PHC is just big waste of time?
