Will You Become The Next PCH Sweepstakes Winner?

Lee Child, the author of seventeen novels about Jack Reacher, the title character of a new movie starring Tom Cruise, has often been asked “How do you create suspense?”  He wrote a column recently in The New York Times answering the question.  And you know what?  I realized that my esteemed Publishers Clearing House colleague Danielle Lam has known the answer all along.

How do Lee and Danielle do it?  It’s not like a cake recipe where you put together all the right ingredients and bake at a precise temperature for just the right amount of time.  No, the secret is to keep your followers guessing.  In Lee’s case his readers are kept on the edge of their seats until the book’s final chapter.  In Danielle’s case, her Facebook fans get successive clues on award day without learning the Prize Patrol’s actual destination until – ta dah! the “winning moment.”  Oh the suspense!!  “Whodunit” in the Jack Reacher thriller? “Will the next big winner of the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes be ME?”

Just as Mr. Child won’t reveal his book’s exciting conclusion in advance, we at PCH won’t tell you in advance who the Sweepstakes winner is either.  The difference is: he knows, and we don’t.   The identity of our Big Check recipients becomes known to a handful of people at Publishers Clearing House only after the prize drawing — which occurs after the contest end-date and entry processing.  And only after that is the Prize Patrol informed who and where we must go for the Big “SuperPrize.”

One way to add to your personal anticipation and excitement in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes is to enter every chance you get.  And that’s easy.  Our rules allow you to enter every day at pch.com and at our other Publishers Clearing House websites like PCHSearch&Win, PCHGames, PCHLotto and more.  And of course if you receive a PCH Bulletin in the mail, you should send in that entry too.

Ways to enter PCH Sweepstakes

Of course I can’t promise that more entries will eliminate the suspense by making you a winner.  But our recent PCH SuperPrize winners – like John Wylie, Rory Bellamy and Gerard Rivera – are surely glad they entered every chance they got.

So everybody, enter now and the next PCH Sweepstakes winner on April 30th could become YOU!

  1. Hi PCH, I just want to say that someone has called my house saying they are from PcH and they have a package for me, all I have to do is go to the post office and get a
    slip from them, and give a check for $599 and they will bring the package to my house.
    I asked what name is on the package, wouldn’t tell me till after he has called 6 times. I asked him not to call anymore. He called at 2am, 4:15 am and at 7:30 all this morning, and wants me to give him information next time he calls. I sent things to PCH the information and I called there but they were closed. I also get letters from them saying I owe for some purchases, that I know but some of my Sal. Army. but please send me
    a statement about my bills AZ

  2. Dear PCH,
    I have been playing here for a while now. Havent won anything but i swear i have no good luck. My mom ise to play all the time when i was growimg up but back then the Apps didnt exist lol. I have all the apps and still play on internet. I was contacted a few months back from a matthew fisher saying he was PCH and that i had won. I was so excited until he said to send him 300.00. I immediately reported him the phone he called me off of and his IP address to the authorities, not bc he was trying to scam me only but he threatened me. Then two days later o get an email labeled from PCH that.i had won the international PCH lottery n i laughed n said how much it will coat me. They repied $890.
    Like i said before if i ever have good luck idk what i would do. Probanlby pass out.

    1. Hello Heather, we’re glad you knew that wasn’t the real PCH. As tempting as it may be, we don’t encourage anyone to engage a scammer any longer than is minimally necessary. Simply tell them you know they’re a scam and hang up. PCH doesn’t notify major winners by phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask for money to claim a prize. Please report all scam contacts to PCH via the following link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. You can also check out this FAQ for info on how you can block scammers from contacting you via Facebook: http://bit.ly/StopFBScammers. Stay safe everyone and be careful of scammers pretending to be the REAL Prize Patrol!
