Our Guarantee Is Worth A Million (Or More)!

You’ve dreamed of the moment:

You hear a knock and as you’re walking to answer the door, you look outside the window and see a famous dark blue van. As you open the door you see a colorful flash of balloons, a bright red bouquet of red roses, a dark blue blazer with the Prize Patrol emblem, along with three television cameras capturing the look on your face.

That winning moment excitement has been shared by hundreds of winners! It’s the job of Publishers Clearing House to make that moment wonderfully memorable.

Sure winners see balloons, roses, the Prize Patrol and “Big Checks,” but they don’t see all the work that goes into our promise … our guarantee.

That guarantee: To make sure our prize is awarded just as promoted … that the winner will be selected by following careful protocols … and that all safeguards are used to ensure that the SuperPrize is properly funded!

Here are some of the steps we take to make every winner feel like a million:

  • Before the SuperPrize® is registered, PCH buys a surety bond to guarantee funding , a requirement of law in some states.
  • When Publishers Clearing House decides to promote a prize that is over $5,000.00, it registers that prize with the states of New York and Florida. The surety bond is sent with the registration applications.
  • Bulletins that you receive in the mail or email, are carefully created by writers and artists, and then carefully reviewed by lawyers and contest experts to make sure the promotions are clear, accurate and truthful.
  • After all entries are received and the winner is ready to be drawn, our contest officials take over. Contest Analyst, Lori S., writes a memo to our Information Systems Contest Department which identifies all eligible SuperPrize Numbers from our Contest System for a the specific Giveaway we’re about to award.
  • Then Contest Manager, Maryann Carter, reviews the memo and makes sure that proper instructions have been given to identify all eligible entries. On Drawing Day, Information Systems inputs eligible SuperPrize Numbers into the Winning Number Generator and THE WINNING NUMBER IS SELECTED!
  • This SuperPrize Number, worth a life-changing fortune, is then sent to Maryann Carter in a special encrypted email that only she can view. After viewing the winning number, Maryann then asks Information Systems to do a “look-up” for the name and address associated with that winning number. Now the Prize Patrol knows where their next exciting winning moment will happen! That’s where the real fun begins!

Winners need to enter for chances to win a millionaire-making fortune from Publishers Clearing House, but we leave nothing to chance to make sure every detail is taken care of to properly award and fund our prizes!

So enter with confidence! Publishers Clearing House handles every detail to ensure you have an awesome experience with us! Good luck!

I still think some people don’t know what the word IF means. I truly believe some of them just read over that word on contest letters and think they’ve won, when in fact they haven’t. I don’t know how many times I explained to people telling me they got a winning letter from you (really one of your regular mailings) and having to show them that it says IF you have the winning number. I explain to them what IF means. Then they get it. They need to enter like everyone else and IF they end up the winners the PCH Prize Patrol will come to their home to award their prize, but only IF they win.
Sorry, but it’s true, true, true. I know one old guy I took care of when I used to work as a nurse. I couldn’t convince him that he hadn’t yet won, he needed to see how the word IF turned out. I sometimes think in some cases it’s a bit of a language barrier where some people don’t totally understand the American English Language thoroughly. Yet, in other cases I think it’s more of a mind set. I have no problem with hoping, believing, dreaming, I do, but I’m realistic enough to know you just have to wait and see. Like my folks used to always say, “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.”
GOOD LUCK TO US ALL WHO ENTER AND HOPE, WISH, BELIEVE.

i have been getting e-mails to enter these contests…and like religon, i enter each and every one i’ve gotten so far…at times they have refered to “winning numbers” and they assign us a number right? well i would like to know how we the public know what our personal “winning number” is to begin with…they talked about sending documents with this number assigned to us on it….i have never recieved any numbers on line nbor did i recieve any through the mail…so…the question is how are we able to compare the winning number to a number we have been assigned???

    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Keith,

    If you enter online, your entry will be assigned a number after it has been submitted. Each of our mailings are assigned an entry number before they are sent out. If you enter by returning a mailer, your entry number will be marked on that mailer.
