What’s In A Name? The Initials Contest Explained!

Someone with YOUR initials will definitely WIN CASH!

Centuries ago, William Shakespeare brought these famous words to the lips of a young, lovelorn Juliet Capulet…

What’s in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet.”

In other words, you could call a rose a steamboat, a turkey, a sneaker, and that wouldn’t take away from the value of it. Basically what Shakespeare was saying was that the value of a rose is not in its name, but in its essence – in the case of the rose, its scent.

Well, sorry Shakespeare, but at Publishers Clearing House, our Initials Contest does NOT work that way. For this contest, it’s all about what’s in a name, specifically, the initials that start your first and last name. Because someone with YOUR set of initials will definitely WIN CASH!

Here’s the “essence” of this particular giveaway: Publishers Clearing House GUARANTEES to announce a winner of $100.00 with the same set of initials as your first and last name. Prizes of $100.00 will be awarded at random from among eligible entrants with a set of initials that match each of the 676 unique combinations of two letters in the alphabet.

How will we do it? At the end of the giveaway, we’ll take all the timely entries and divide them up according to their two-letter initial combination…AA, AB, AC, AD…you get the idea! Then, we’ll hold a random drawing for each combination of initials in order to select a winner for each.

Let’s use my initials as a hypothetical. If I entered on time (and if I didn’t work here!), my entry would be combined with the rest of the entrants whose initials match mine and, with a little luck, I could be the “F.L.” chosen in the random drawing to win cash! And the same goes for your set of initials!

That’s a whole lot of prizes, and a whole lot of cash — a total of $67,600.00 to be exact! It’s true! Take the amount of the award ($100.00) and multiply it by the 676 unique combinations of two letters in the alphabet and you get: $67,600.00!

Publishers Clearing House really is all about making as MANY WINNERS as possible?! Let me count the ways… 676 in just this Initials Contest alone!

Oh, and speaking of What’s In a Name… Remember, the “Initials Contest” (Giveaway #2231), is NOT part of the August 31st “Forever” Prize Event (Giveaway #1830). Different name, different giveaways! But BOTH great opportunities to WIN!

Have you entered for the Initials Contest yet through our PCH mailings or e-mails? If not, you can sign up to receive them at pch.com. Enter today!

Good Luck,

    Hello,

    I got an email that says its from PCH , however I know that PCH has my contact information so I am reluctant to send anything as they request. This is what the email reads: Email winner of 1,000,000.00USD in the recent PCHLOTTO. Please respond to collect winning, Please send your contact Details to outpchwinnings@imail.com. It gives me a reference number of 865564435. Is this for real?

You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190.

    I don’t know what I’m supposed to type in where it says “Search” What am I searching for? This stuff is to hard for an old lady. Iv’e been playing for some time now and I’m getting pretty discouraged. I just want some money to make the rest of our life a little more easy.

    1. PCH Staff PCH Staff says:

      You should search for anything that is of interest to you. Use PCHSearch&Win just like you would use any other search engine such as Google, Yahoo, or Bing. But PCHSearch&Win has the power of PCH, which means that you can win prizes just for searching the internet!
