is it that make so much money that they need a tax break this is how this was created? As for winners yes it looks as someone win but it seems like every month there is winner for life how can that be ? I seen prizes and contest that is used as a tax loophole but once yearly how can it be on going do you make your own money or have a tree or two?

Way to many adds to watch. I Love scratchers but never win any money. Way to many games. This needs to be simplified. There’s just to much to do along with our regular computer chores. I still look for a win to come along though.

I really think you need to buy things in order to win anything.

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Barb S. said...

    No, you do not have to buy anything to win. You just have to enter, that’s it. Of course some people will keep on believing that buying is necessary for winning, no matter how many times PCH emphasizes that a purchase is not necessary to win. Some people will go so far as to get themselves into debt by ordering item after item even when they know they do not have the money to pay for it all. Then they expect to be blessed with huge amounts of money when they cannot responsibly handle what they already have. Just my 2 cents.

Holley Holleman said...

PCH, PCH.com, et al., Prize Patrol and its deputies, Danielle, Dave, Todd, Jussie and all the other unsung heroes that remain unnamed to us at PCH and its affiliates: know that we will all live “happily ever after” as long as PCH is “living happily ever after”. While the odds of winning are incredibly low, your sole goal in life is to find “that winner” but yet deterred by none. We complain, whine, holler, blame and hurl mean ugly words at you when we do not win but it seems we too do not give up and just keep on trying. I truly love PCH and when I think of you I think of what Shakespeare wrote: “The Game is Afoot”. That sums up PCH in a nutshell. We all love you for all your endeavors and endurances.

I just want to comment on your Online Support. There was some issues that I was having and they treated me with the utter most respect and really seemed sincere about my issues. I only hear and read a lot of negative things about PCH, But I want people to know that PCH may be a large company, You care about our issues no matter how big or how small.
Thank You So Much PCH,

Holly Messinese said...

I was wondering how P C H got started. So now I know. All good things begin small. Hopefully, the Prize Patrol will find a way to show up in Shady Side, Maryland.
I got on my lawn mower to cut grass one day after winning a blog contest, and learned that my address was needed, and verification that I was a U S citizen, that I began singing a new song made up just for the Publishers Clearing House, and how you guys now know where I live.
My neighbors may have thought that I was a bit strange while singing and even doing a dance while cutting my lawn. I still believe that I can win, and have conditioned myself that my chances are very slim, however it’s a possibility! Yeah! : )
Happy thoughts go out to all who are dreamers like me. : )

I had a hard drive failure and then located some lost messages and then returned them last night, then I did work as fast as I can as complete

The PCH story is unusually inspiring! Just like other success stories, PCH also has experienced a roller-coaster kind of existence but because of its integrity and objectivity, it has recovered and now it’s starting to give away huge amounts of prizes. I wish I could have that luck to experience happy winning moments with the royal trio Prize Patrol Team and be a part of the PCH history. How wonderful it would be! I’d be shouting out loud. A million thanks, PCH! Thank you Lord! I believe in you. Blessed be Thy name! To you, Father God, I give back all the glory.
