Top Reasons Why You May Not Be Winning Sweepstakes!


If you’ve ever heard yourself saying this or thinking “why am I not winning sweepstakes”, then you must read this blog! We’re here to share the top reasons why you may not be winning Sweepstakes. Find out what could be standing in the way of you and the prizes of your dreams!

1.     Forgetting to Enter Every Day!

Do you know that you can enter most of our Sweepstakes every single day? It’s true! So if you only enter once in a while, or one or two days a week, you’re really missing out! Maximize your chances to win by entering as often as you can!

2.  Using Only One Way To Win!

PCH fans should know that there are tons of ways to enter the PCH Sweepstakes!  Of course, there’s, but there’s also PCHSearch&Win — where you can claim an entry with your first search of the day – PCHGames, PCHlotto, the PCH Fan Page on Facebook, PCHTV, PCH mailings and more! WOW, that’s a lot of ways to enter! Are you using them all?


3.     Missing Important Opportunities!

You may have missed a winning opportunity that got sent to your inbox because you didn’t check it or, even worse, you may have deleted a message because you thought it was junk mail or spam. Your e-mail provider may think an important notification is spam and place it where you can’t see it, so be sure to check your spam folders regularly!  It would be such a shame if you missed out on an exciting new chance to win.


4.     Giving Up Too Easily 

 You’ve heard the saying, “Patience is a virtue”. And in today’s world of instant gratification, lightning quick messaging and information, and everything available at the click of a button, we sometimes forget that some things worth waiting for take time. And sometimes when we lose our patience we become anxious, worried or unhappy, so the best thing to do is to stick with a strategy and keep the faith AND your peace of mind. As they say, “time will tell”. Everyone goes through dry spells, so it’s important not to give up. 

5.     Only Trying For One Prize!

 Everyone wants to win the big prizes, but it’s also a good idea to enter a mix of sweepstakes and contests, including daily giveaways and smaller cash prizes . Be sure to go for all different kinds of sweepstakes, some with big prizes and others with lots of prizes to win. It’s fun to go for a variety of exciting prize opportunities! Plus, it’s a great way to stay motivated!

So stop wondering “why am I not winning sweepstakes” and follow the tips above! They can go a long way toward winning sweepstakes prizes of your dreams!

Best of luck to you all!

    I’ve been playing for over 28 years and have over 43 million tokens. Still not convinced that pch is legit. This was a great waste of time and effort. I don’t think anyone has ever really won in this contest.

    1. PCH Staff PCH Staff says:

      Hello Anthony, please don’t lose hope. Please bear in mind that millions of people participate in our sweepstakes giveaways and only one winner can be selected at a time. Our winner selection process is completely random and unbiased. Each entry submitted as the same fair chance at winning. One of our recent SuperPrize winner Jane B. from Iowa told us that she has been entering our sweepstakes giveaways since 1977. Do you know how much money Jane won? I love telling this, she WON $1 Million Dollars. There is always hope! Click here to view the multiple ways to enter: Remember, no purchase is necessary to enter, play or win! Best of luck to all who enter!

    I would love to win so I could buy the VFW a Hall for Our Metal of Honor Winner “Tony K. Burris” to keep his memory alive.

  4. TRAVIS MARTIN says:

    Well after seeing people on here playing for 32 years and hanmvent in anything that definitely shot my determination down, what chance do I have if 16-32 years haven seen anything maybe I’m hoping for too much

    1. AR says:

      I’m trying to be patient…so don’t lose hope. I’m pretty sure we could all use the cash for the greater good, I KNOW I COULD…being without transportation SUCKS!!! Keep faith so that one day, when your time comes you will be well deserving!

  5. Bernadee Queen says:

    I have been trying to win anything for 32 years would be super happy to win $10,000.00 just to pay bills off need to get monies for my 10 year old Dachshund want to find out if she has Nasal Cancer she has been bleeding from hr nose vet says she needs to be scoped.

  6. Lakeesha Johnson says:

    I have never won anything from pch. Online games or nothing. I’ve been playing for 16 years now and nothing. I also am thinking it’s a scam. I’m starting to think pch already knows who’s going to win the grand prizes. Who knows, maybe I’ll win one day but I’m counting my losses. I’m starting to give up now and continue to work to gain what I want and need. Good luck to those who may win!

  7. Stephanie Forrester says:

    I also have tried so hard to win. I grew up in DSS I stay with my friend and her family and have no car or transportation so I can’t get a job and my phone is about to be up and I can’t pay for my next month. Even winning just enough for my straighttalk card would be great

  8. Carol Ann Prince says:

    I agree about not winning. I don’t know how many years I’ve been trying to win anything. I’ve purchased items which has made me a VIP member. I’ve played games, lotto, and use the search engine. I would be happy to just win $5,000. But I have not won a thing. The games seem to be less and less and the websites have changed so you cannot find anything. I’ve about decided this is a scam.

    1. PCH Staff PCH Staff says:

      Hi Carol, thanks so much for being a loyal patron of PCH! It’s important to remember that you are not required to purchase or subscribe to anything to enter a sweepstakes. Buying does not improve your chances of winning. It is always free to enter and to win! It is even stated in our official rules, “no purchase necessary!” All entry opportunities sent out by mail or via email are all chances to win, in our Official Rules it does state you are not yet a winner. Our winners selection is 100% random and unbiased, which creates a level playing field for all those involved. So we urge you to not give up hope. In the 50 years that PCH has operated as a Sweepstakes company, they’ve awarded over $280Million to locations far and wide – believe it or not that number climbs daily! So don’t miss out on a chance to claim your entries!
