The Race for the Big Prize is On!

In recent weeks the TV airwaves have been full of commercials asking viewers to join in the race to see who will win the big prize.  The word “house” has been prominently featured in the advertising.

Am I talking about the 2012 race for the presidential house? About the tons of political advertising and the heavy coverage of primaries and caucuses? Or how journalists are looking forward to the party conventions and which candidate will take on President Barack Obama in November?

No, I’m talking about the race for a different “house”: specifically Publishers Clearing House and the big prize – or SuperPrize – to be won by one lucky entrant in the fabulously famous PCH Sweepstakes!   I’m sure you’ve seen many of our TV commercials urging you to go to pch.com and enter!

Our big day – and maybe YOURS — will arrive about eight months ahead of November’s Election Day: February 29th to be exact.  That’s the day I will lead our Prize Patrol to someone’s door, ring the bell, greet the resident, then announce: “You have just won the PCH Sweepstakes!”

Now I don’t mean to underestimate the effect that a presidential administration can have on an individual American’s life — especially today on President’s Day when we’re all honoring our founding fathers! But, believe me, if you win $1 Million A Year for Life from Publishers Clearing House, that will have a major effect on your life, not to mention your bank account.  Such a windfall will allow you to do a multitude of things that you’ve only dreamed about before.

So dream away.  But – more and most importantly – enter the PCH Sweepstakes at once. The race for the big prize is on and tomorrow is the last chance for you to enter at pch.com so don’t waste any time, not even a second! Get your entry in for the big prize now, before it’s too late!

You may not win the race for the presidency in 2012.  But a dream house and a lot more could be yours – soon! So remember to get your entries in before tomorrow!

Wishing you the best of luck – from Publishers Clearing House, “the house where dreams come true.”

Dave Sayer, PCH Prize Patrol Ambassador; I know the big super race is on for the super prize, the house where dreams come true. I am hoping that my entries are early enough to be one of the major winners. This would be a dream come true for me and my whole family. Not to mention the possibilities I would have to help other struggling families. Happy President’s Day and thanks again for the opportunity to help my community be a better place to live.

i never ran a race my whole life but as that knock of life comes i’ll be running to answer the door,and making it possible for my life to start to run right into the arms of opportunity.dreams fulfilled and security in maby ways this is a big learning lesson to me nad the biggest challenge is ahead is yet to come…trying scares the mess out of most people when it is positiveand you are not hurting anyone with your trying for a better,but it is always a sour fruit in the bunch always hitting your progress in life no matter if it is to help yourself stay out of way of harm.something or someone always wants in instead of trying for themselves and their families and snarl at your efforts because it is not them.i thank god everyday i was not raised like an animal and actually respected my values even when the storms of life were rough.people can be as mean as nasty as they want by taking away and compromising things in my lifebut i am still going to be stronger inthe end of the battle. i got my pride and pray for other to find their own and use it wisely i still am through my hurts and pains.{win that battle for us to gain peace and the american way}happy president’s day} may the better man win!!!!!!!!!!!!!even if there are haters in this world….

As I walked to the bus stop today I thought, “Me”?

But now I’m back to reality, no!

But! Someone will win, and I hope that prrson gives appreciation to a “Company of. Love”.

I was listening to. Whitney Houston Song today:
“How Will I Know”! A Grammt Hit!
How will you know until you play!

For people like me, winning has never come my way. But I have “Won God’s Grace”.

But I hope and pray, all of my Pch Co-Fans become. “Winners”!

If you don’t: Remember, God is Good, and yes, all the time!
If I could win a car somehow; thats all I ask.
Just to get my son to school.

Love You All, you are somebody!

    Hi Rochelle,

    The SuperPrize winner, along with 210 others, was sent a letter saying that he or she has won at least a $1,000.00 prize from PCH. The letters were sent out on Monday, so there is a good chance that the Prize Patrol will reach the SuperPrize winner before the letter does.

My grandmother was a true fan played the sweepstakes since they first started. She ordered things every single time a letter came in. We, the family for years and years just watched her send her entry in to Pch. She was very dedicated. Sometime during the 90′s Pch sent a letter to her and the sweepstakes had a thing going where if they came to your house and you said “I CANT BELIEVE I WON!! ” “THIS IS REAL!!” They would give her like $10,000.00 in cash. My grandmother wrote the quote on paper and taped it on her doorway so when they came she would know exactly what to say! She would sometimes take her lunch outside and eat at the picnic table saying “Today’s the day they draw the entry!” so I’m going to eat outside in case they come here!”. That is a couple fine memories my family and I have of her.
My grandma died in June 2007 at the age of 89. She left her home for my Aunt and it took a couple years to clean it out (she was a pack rat). The one thing we left alone was the worn down old yellowed note left on the wall of the quote she had written for when Pch comes to her door.
True story. Real memories.
I have continued her torch to stay lit. I started playing a few years after she died. I got a letter in the mail from Pch and I was about to toss it in the garbage and something in me stopped and I thought of grandma and I opened it and sent my first entry in. I now am a Pch fan and contestant hoping maybe I’ll win. Or better yet, I should say “WE” will win!

Tracy P said...

Hi there,
WARNING…. Lots of questions!
I’m a little confused about entering some of the promotions and I’m seeking a little clarity about each.

First- From what I understand we can enter once per day, per person through Facebook and once per day, per person through pch.com for a total of two entries per day. Is this correct? I don’t want to be disqualified.

2nd- How many times do I have to complete the form to be considered a “Super Fan”. Is this something that I must do daily? I have been doing this daily because it was not clear nor could I find any informative clues about the “Super Fan” promotion out in cyber space.

3rd – When I used the entry methods on Facebook today I noticed that the $100,000 entry which is followed by the “Super Fan” sign up, and the PCH Sweeps tab which is followed by a $75,000 entry are both the same prize number “2184″. Did this disqualify me for entering the same promotion twice from Facebook or are they considered separate like email entries are considered separate from the pch.com entries? I had no idea until today that these were the same promotion number because they were advertised so differently from one another. I just happened to notice today for the first time, the promotion number at the bottom in very fine print and written in a light shaded font.
4th – Also just for clarity if I respond to an entry that was emailed to me from PHC and I have already entered through the pch.com site will I be disqualified? or is this considered another means of entry.

5th- I changed my email address since I began playing this year. I’m NOT entering the sweeps through two separate email addresses daily. What will happen to my older entries since I changed email addresses?

Thanks so much!

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

    Hi Tracy,

    You may enter once through Facebook and once through PCH.com without those being duplicates. Every different way you enter is considered a separate promotion. So the 2 giveaways at the end of the Facebook entries with the same giveaway number are also separate entries. Every email you respond to is also a separate entry.

    You only need to sign up once to be a PCHsuperfan for the length of the promotion. We keep this information on file, so there is no need to enter more than once.

    As long as your home address is still the same, the entries with your previous email address will still be attributed to you. They are still valid entries for you.

    I hope this helps!

Please remember that many people enter to win and only one person can win the sweepstakes.

When will the winner of $5000 for life be notified. And how will they be notified? And foremost how to you pick a winner? Is there a way to write out why you feel you deserve the cash? If not maybe this could be helpful twards deciding a winner, just a thoughtful suggestion. :-)

    Hi Katherine,

    In regards to $5,000 a Week for Life, this was a Special Early Look Opportunity for a SuperPrize winner in our May 31st SuperPrize Event. Because a matching winning number was not returned, we awarded an alternate prize of $1,000,000 to Tari Woods of Pagosa Springs, CO!

    Also winners are selected randomly. All Giveaways are conducted by Giveaway Supervisors and overseen by independent auditors. We have no idea, in advance, who the winners might be. It’s just as much of a surprise for us as it is for you!
