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 have been playing for 11 years according the records pch has, but I have really been doing it for waaaay longer. They have only counted my years at my present location in nc, I played in ny before that for many years and my mom played for at least 15 or 20 before she died, never winning a thing. They say you don’t need to purchase but I have bought so much stuff with hope that it would make a difference and I am constantly struggling to pay for these things. Often I have to return them because I can’t afford them. Sometimes I am just not happy with the product quality compared to its price. I do have many things that I was satisfied with, but the price is really a lot. I need to win and I feel like giving up. Not much left in my life and I am getting old and losing mobility. Will have to work until I die because I cannot pay bills without working. Social security does not cut it. I really want a big win to help my family and some friends and I sure would like to travel someplace nice before I am unable to do so.

    Dear Alexanfra,

    I know exactly how you feel.
    I’ve been doing the same as you daily for the past eight years and all I ever win is tokens.


  4. I follow all of the steps advised. I once put in 2000 entries with my tokens and did not win for that prize with that many entries. The instant win games seem set up to never land on money. I am not just being a negative or doubtful person either. Some of it just does not add up. I have been playing for 2 years and would think by now I would have at least won a smaller prize that should not be as difficult to win compared to the superprizes. I enter all prizes online daily and send back every mailing I receive and search on search and win and front page and still no prize. I have won 2 $10 prizes for being a “VIP” but $10 hardly feels like winning. I play that slots tournament too almost daily but never come close to the points that the top scorers get which this is not a skilled game its at random supposedly. My skepticism is growing more and sadly I am losing faith in PCH. The superprize winners don’t even seem as excited as I would be if I saw the prize patrol I would know it meant I won a prize and I would know the prize amount as well as I pay attention to the hints and clues on facebook. It seems like the prize winners responses are rehearsed or not the original response when opening the door cause they don’t seem as shocked and thrilled as people would be. I don’t want to give up after so much effort and patience.
