A Big PCH Winner Shares Her SuperPrize Experience!

Today is the BIG DAY! I hope you’re following the Prize Patrol to see who we surprise. The big award days always take me back to my own “BIG DAY” – August 27th, 2008.

Natalie Bostelman

I have to tell you, it was pretty hectic for me that morning. Maybe because I knew that someone would win at least $1 Million from Publishers Clearing House that day. I remember running around our trailer, tidying up and vacuuming. Yes, I cleaned! That’s one of the things many PCH fans tell me that they do when they know the Prize Patrol is on the move.

After my cleaning whirlwind, I had to get ready to go to work. Granted, I had the excitement butterflies in my tummy that morning, but I knew if I really DID win, the Prize Patrol would find me. Unfortunately, I ran into a “fashion crisis” as my friends and I say. Hah! Tim Gunn, where were you when I needed you?! For some reason, despite my cleaning efforts, I was running low on work appropriate clothing. I grabbed a blue and black sweater and black slacks. No time for make-up or contact lenses, as I was running a little late. I mentally kicked myself. What if they really DID show up? I thought. They always show the winners and their reactions. Eh… no time to think on that.

So I hopped in my trusty Vibe named “Flash” and headed out to work. Hours later, my boss called to check in on the day as he was out. Just as I was filling him in on the day, I happened to look up and out our window. No. Way.  It really does happen!

The blue blazers, the roses, the balloons, the cameras… and that Big Check! Those butterflies were having butterflies…and I didn’t have an ounce of makeup on. However, I didn’t really dwell or care about that! This was a moment that I had to experience right then and there! To experience my moment, head on over to PCHTV.com.

I have to tell you, I always tried to run in my head what I’d say or do if the Prize Patrol showed up on my doorstep one day. However all of that prep work pretty much went out the door. You’ll definitely see that when you watch the video and see what happens when Dave reveals how much I won!

What about you? Do you have a game plan in mind today just for fun, in case it might be you? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to follow me on Facebook:  Natalie B at PCH and on Twitter:  @Natalieatpch – I’ll be giving updates and clues as to where we are!
GOOD LUCK!

Hi Natalie Bostelman and the PCH Prize Patrol Team. First of all, I would like to congratulate Natalie for winning a Super Prize. I would not know just what to do, having such a wonderful life changing experience, as one like this in just a moment of time. It would put my system in shock, knowing that my life has just changed forever, all the things that I would be able to do flashing through my head, and all at the same time. I think the whole experience would make me cry a river of very happy tears.:) <3

shannon smith said...

I’m not sure how I would act. I always wondered what would happen if they would catch me early in the morning, all crusty eyed, hair looking crazy, would I be embarrased or would the shock over come my emotions. Well once and if that happens i’ll let you know. One can always dream. Good luck to the winners.

Hi Natalie! I am a big fan of yours and hope to meet you someday. When I saw your winning moment on The Lottery Changed My Life, it gave me hope! I told myself if she won, so can I. Even if I don’t win the big prize today. Your inspiration gave me hope. I enter every morning faitfully just as you did and I answer every email. You can’t win if you don’t enter. I am so excited and happy for who ever wins today!

    Hi Margaret,

    The giveaway you’re referring to is not the $1,000,000.00 A Year For Life early look giveaway, which is being awarded today. Also, the initials giveaway and the local area giveaway are two separate giveaways. Local area winners were notified by certified mail this week. The Initials Giveaway ends today. We will not be selecting winners for this contest until March of 2012. For the initials giveaway, prizes of $100.00 will be awarded via random drawing from among eligible entrants with initials that match each of the 676 unique combinations of two letters in the alphabet.

Congratulations to that very blessed man and his family today….It’s kinda funny how I really knew the odds of winning just weren’t that great but for some reason I let myself start to dream about how much help I could give to all of my loved ones, including being able to put money aside for my children’s college, going back to further my college degree and be able to finally not have to stress and worry from pay check to pay check….I feel bad for not being more happy for the winner today, because I’m sure he and his family have dreams of their own, but acting a little foolish, I couldn’t help but let out a couple of tears and feel just a little heart broken. The funny thing is, is that I hadn’t realized how much hope I had allowed myself to have in such slim odds lol.

In the final determination of a lot of things to do, much of the time, physical energy and thoughts etc. It’s hard to imagine today what the dark light? Thoughts and feelings focused on urgent problems and a lot of obstacles that occur, the problem of supporting facilities and network problems that are error (I understand the new 2-year study in the internet and even this mode of trying and trying, as well as the language barrier has not been smooth so that also inhibit understanding. but thankfully enough tissue could provide a means to understand this), but even in such circumstances I would expect no less disappointing. Well … I am the owner of a super Prize Giveaway on February 29th 1830 by MM initial attempt in this comment with all the limitations I hope everyone is willing to make time a consideration in determining the winner. Thank you.

Listen, I know there were a lot of hopefuls amongst us. We all know what the odds are. Why would anyone get up and clean their house? or have special clothing picked out? Winning this money is NOT a dream it is a Chance, just like the lottery some of us win most of us DO NOT. Be thankful for what you already have, even if it is pay check to pay check. Do not cry as this is a waste of tears. If we still have jobs, food and a roof over our heads then we are already winners, think of the families who do not, pray for them and for Goodness sake be happy as you are BLESSED and do not realize it.

Victoria, I know I’ve seen the advertisement for $1,000,000 a year for life before now. It was last year around this time. What was that for? Was it also an early look? And if this was an early look why didnt you guys say that? Everyone was thinking it was the actual real deal because it kept being advertised as $1,000,000.000 a year for life on Feb. 29th? I am so happy for the winnner! I cry no matter who wins cuz I love to see someone happy.

How do you guys actually go about these contests? I’m confused. My friends and family keep telling me this is a scam and I keep entering because it’s fun, but now with all the misconceptions i’m becoming deterred a bit. Can you explain how you go about your announcements? Is everything an “early look” and no one actually wins the advertised prize? The guy before this Faulk I think his name is, he actually won the prize announced. I cried and cried tears of joy for him and kept saying awwwww lol but I still dont understand the process.

    Hi SC,

    The giveaway last year at this time would have been an early look draw for Giveaway 1400 which ended last November. We did specify in a few of the PCH Blogs that this draw was going to be an early look draw. We apologize that this point was not made clearer. Until PCH guarantees that the grand prize will be awarded, we have early look drawings. In these drawings, a first entry number is drawn at random. If this number does not match the number assigned to the prize (in this case $1,000,000.00 A Year For Life), then we draw another entry number to find the winner of an alternate prize (in this case $1,000,000.00). When LeRoy Faulks won $1,000,000.00 plus $5,000.00 A Week For Life, PCH had guaranteed that that prize would be given away. Until the end of giveaway 1830, the grand prize will only be awarded if the matching winning number is drawn on the first try.

    I hope this helps!

I won;t even attempt a game plan unless I get one of those short list letters 1st..

after following so much more now on the computer…. it seems that unless you are picked in that final 211 you are NOT in the running…. so why get your hopes up ..

So NEXT big win… if I get a letter THEN I will plan..& maybe panic as others do…but if no letter …. no excitement for me!!!

Congats to all those that have won in the past, but you ALL knew you were in the winnings..

So more excitement for all of you… the rest of us just watch the reactions on TV..

Just my thoughts,
Maureen

HI, I would like to ask a question. I am hoping to find an answer that may clear it up. Victoria stated PCH has never promoted a $1,000,000.00 a year for life prize before, but on Feb. 28, 2011 a $1 Mil for life prize was to be given out. It was promoted and the last day to enter for that drawing was on Feb. 15, 2011. I do not recall anyone winning it nor was it stated that anyone did. But I remember seeing it myself and I also have the link to which it was promoted and talked about. http://blog.pch.com/blog/2011/02/01/5000-a-week-for-life-%e2%80%93-where-did-it-go/ They were talking about the $5,000 per week for life and went right into telling everyone to enter for the 1 Mil for life drawing. I am not asking to start any type of chaos, I was just wandering because Victoria said it was never promoted before, so I wanted to clear up the confusion. Thank you for your answer and God bless for doing a wonderful job changing the lives of others and giving them hope. Have a great day. And congrats to the Clark family.

Hi . I am receiving my emails from PCH in rxt format so I am unable to click on the entry links. Therefore I am only able to enter via the mail that I receive through US mail. How can I change this?

    Hi Audley,

    You should use PCHSearch&Win like you would use any other search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing. You do not need to type your name in the box. Instead, you could search for recipes, books, movies, song lyrics, or anything else that might interest you. If you win, you will be notified right away by winner notification screen that will direct you how to claim your prize.
