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!

    My curious why I get several e-mails everyday with deadlines to enter. If my entry has been confirmed why must I re-enter every day? If I don’t then I loose my chance to win, is that the case. Also does anyone ever win $ instead of tokens on the quick picks? Thank you Jo B

  4. I believe pch is 100 percent real i enter 3 or 4 times a day I would give anything to win this for me and my kids pinto beans and potatoes wouldnt be dinner 4 times a week and we would have a real home oh yea and a car .Its hopeful thinking and i like i said am 100 percent believer.Just keep trying i know i will.

    I lost a lot back in 2011 it was the worst year of my life my brother past away on February 23 of 2011 and we buried him on the 26 of febuary. I’l never forget that day a month later my girlfriend of 7 years leaves me when at that time I needed her more then any thing. After that I loose my house and after that I loose my carrier. I know the years have past by and all. But when I look back its like it all happened to me yesterday. I just for once hope that febuary the 26 of 2016 is a better year this year and my life does change I do have the change I’m 1 in a billion to be the winner. Being the winner won’t bring my brother back but il surly live the rest of my days till we re unit one day. Because if any one really needs this I can honestly say I do.
