Is Publishers Clearing House Real?

Real Prize Winner Answers Question “Is Publishers Clearing House Real?”


Hello PCH Fans!

Have you ever experienced something that seemed almost too good to be true? Something so fantastic that people shake their heads and say, “No way. That never happens!”

Well, welcome to a real Publisher Clearing House winner’s life, a life I’ve happily enjoyed since my big win in August 2008! But truth be told, it started even BEFORE my big win in August of 2008. I’ve always had a little bit of a lucky streak. Whenever there was a local raffle or a contest, I would tend to win something. Then in 2008, I started entering the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes through PCHSearch&Win. After a few months, I instantly won an Amazon Gift Card. I remember turning around my laptop and showing my husband the notification and my name scrolling on the bottom of the screen. Granted, Scott knows all about my lucky streak, so it wasn’t too surprising when that happened. Later on that year, my entering really paid off when the Prize Patrol showed up in my door months later in August.

Have you seen my winning moment? If you haven’t, definitely take a look HERE. Look especially at the “Behind the Scenes” work the Prize Patrol did to find me. You’ll find them being interviewed by Toledo’s local media and getting reactions from workers from the nursing home near our local florist. Funnily enough, my husband’s grandmother was a resident of that nursing home at the time! All she knew was that someone in the area had won the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes. Can you imagine her surprise when she realized it was ME?

Fast forward to a few months after my win. Dave Sayer called me and asked if I would like to share my story officially and become PCH’s Goodwill Ambassador. I said, “OF COURSE!” and I’ve been corresponding with fans ever since. I get asked A LOT of questions, and every so often, someone questions whether it’s all real — whether I really won a $1 Million SuperPrize from Publishers Clearing House.

I’m here to assure you that that is IT IS REAL, VERY REAL! Publishers Clearing House did make me One Million Dollars richer, and it changed my whole life!

    Life is kinda getting hard. My fiancè lost her job and we may lose our house. Everyday, I check my email to see if I win. I want to give my future wife everything we need. Pay off our house, surgery, fix her truck, and send my step daughter to the best school. These are the reasons I never gave up. Keep your heads up America and good luck.

  3. Larwence says:

    They only give the prize to wealthy American’s which I find ironic,seems it’s the poor and middle class who supports and spends the most money and who spends the most time entering their contest. Yet I guess that is the way of the world, they probably are all employees on some level, who don’t really win,but take the pictures for job security

      Really good point

    Every commercial I see it looks line the people live in the rich part of a neighborhood , not the average person who needs the money. They do hound you everyday I think to track your web searches so they can sell them to different companies. Seeing is believing for me!
