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!

  1. I’ve been participating since 2008 and nothing, it’s 2017 so hopefully this will be the year but please don’t keep bumping the date, first it was (April 28th, then May 30th, now it’s June 28 …) Hello!! Good luck to me God knows at this darn age I need a relieve!

    1. Hello Evelyn, The June 30th giveaway is a Special Early Look event. During the life of a giveaway, we will hold these events to look to see if the winning Super Prize number has been returned yet. If it hasn’t, we hold a random drawing for a $1Million second chance prize as is the case with our upcoming prize day. That’s what’s so great about an Early Look, even when the winning number isn’t received, we still have a winner! If the winning number isn’t returned during any of the Special Early Look events, then we will award the promoted prize on the end date of the giveaway…guaranteed!

  2. I’ve been on here for years and NEVER won anything I play the games I do the tasks but still don’t win I could really use the 7,000 a week for life as I am now getting up there In years I’ve worked hard my whole life I could really use a break now and not have to worry about my bills or money I have seen on tv where ppl have won but I still don’t know if it’s real I get so tired of trying and no results just saying

  3. You don’t have to buy anything to enter. They just do that to get customers. At one time they used to show the winners on regular over the air television.

  4. I’ve seen there car and Van pull up to an empty house, several times in a roll, all different states and claim someone at that house……LIAR LIAR… and it seems to happen to offend to them..
