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!

    I have entered to win for many years and get real close but never win so I guess you have to be rich to win cause I never win

    Has anyone won since 2008? I don’t expect to win, but like anything in life… Why not try? I’ve been more than devoted in the past 4 years, not once have I ever won, anything, but tokens. In which u can’t even purchase anything with. Except another drawing of course. PCH may pass time, but to most NORMAL PEOPLE, PCH is or can be a site many would consider to be….(a nice way to put it) a WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT! Yet, like some that still have faith and believe that not everything is a scam, my foolish believing and foolishness still pass time in hope. That someone actually wins “cash prizes” everyday/month. More often then every 6 years. PCH IS NEVER ON TV…….

    What a come on pester you with countless E-mails promising possible prize that is just out of reach like putting a shot of whiskey in front of a achcohlic.

    I wonder if PCH is real and if someone speaks Spanish , and had many doubts and I enter every day and nothing I earn only many emails saying I’m on the VIP list and nothing else. I need to know if the prize patrol were to fall in my favor as they can get to PR and communication as serious if not speak English ??? also as you know if winner is at home ??? It is to ever won a prize in PR ????
