    PCH Staff said...

    The prize was awarded earlier in the day – whereas it is typically awarded in the afternoon. This is why we didn’t give any more clues. The reason for this is because anonymity is difficult to maintain in a small town such as White City, OR – word spread fast about the identity of the winner, so it only made sense to award John earlier in the day :) Hope that clears things up!

The 5 states with no sales tax are Alaska, Montana, Oregon, Vermont and Maryland, and more than two vowels so it’s not Vermont… but my guess is that you are coming to see me in Colorado because I REALLY WANT TO BE THE BIG WINNER TODAY!!!!!

DeAnn Rappleye said...

I’m not the only one, i see, “willing” it to be me… I can think of so many people I can help!… I want to put money every month to the Utah food bank. I want to give to people for Christmas… Pay off my parents and my husband’s parents debts so they can live better in their limited income. I want to get presents for every name on the angel tree. I want to help my friend establish their home and move out of their noble home. She has been working for two years just to hand-dig her septic tank and leach field and she’s moving into her mid-50′s. I want to put money in bank accounts for each grandchild for their college future. Pay off my husbands house so we can manage on my disability payment… I could help so many people! Sigh… But at nearly 10pm mst, I know it isn’t me… And I sigh… And I cry… For everyone I wish I could have helped.

I think pch falsely advertises winner information due to me recieving a statement saying the winner was going to be in florida. Im done entering and i think they pick who they want to win. People to win a prize like that is only wishful thinking so stop dreaming and get real because we will never win no matter how much u enter.

Man, I was really really really really hoping PCH would show up to my house yesterday. At this point in my life, I NEED it far more than just wanting it. Well, congrats to Mr. John Wyllie, I really think he’s going to do some good with it. The first person he mentioned was his father. I love that….I own my father big time and he has never asked for anything in return for all the help and loving-kindness he has given me. I hope that’s me some day soon. Now you can sleep well John, I’m sure you and your family deserve it.

Congatulations again to the newest winner, Mr. Wyllie. And Best Wishes to All. I have a quick question. How many times can I mail in each entry per day, to try and win the Superprize for Nov 2012? I may not be able to stay on a computer for much longer and would very much like to still be in the running to win. Thank you.

Brenda Hodge said...

Personally I think you should stop giving the clues. The information gets leaked, some one posts it and it takes away from the element of surprise. I prefer finding out the original way you did it in the past.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    PCH Staff said...

    Hi Brenda! We stopped giving clues for a couple reasons :) Since John lived in such a small town, anonymity was hard to maintain. We typically do not award the prize until later in the day, but due to these special circumstances, the Prize Patrol decided to award Mr. Wyllie earlier!

Yep Big one, so I will never guve up on my Dream, Our Dreams, and work for so many!

Albanitza Mayoliz said...

Hello Everyone,

It would be great for me to win this as I would be able to help support my parents and parent in laws. My parents are both out of work disabled trying to finish raising their youngest child with minimal to no income. My parent in laws are also under disability. My mother in law has a tumor and needs consistent attention to it and has two other children of her 5 to take care of which makes it difficult. And to be able to celebrate them and provide them with what they need would my goal. Last, but not least my husband who has been supportive every step of the way going through some health issues and who would like to return to school. And of course different charities. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

That is truly why I feel $5,000 a wk for like would mean the world to me.

Blessings,

Alba
