Hi PCH,
For one , I would have loved to have won the $5000– per week,because we sure do need it ,But the other reason I would have liked it , is , that THEN I would have known for sure , that PCH is honest ,like I try to tell my husband and friends ,who all doubt it still. Well , who knows ,maybe I still can win something else , who knows….????

I would like to apologize for comments i made earlier….i was crushed…really thought they were coming here…..as like so many of you….im struggling to stay afloat….it was devastating cause i played everyday and put alot of effort into what i was entering for..
.so…when i was sent an email saying i was a “gold member” later today….i was kinda disgusted in getting it….but i had to also realize it is a million other players…AND were all in the same boat sucks that the American economy has come down to everyone tryin to “win” money for a way out..
Dont know if i even wanna try anymore

    Hi Raslin, winners are selected randomly so everyone has the same chance of winning a prize. Simply enter! You DO NOT have to buy something or pay a fee to enter our sweepstakes or to claim a prize. Buying something does not impact your chances of winning as winners are chosen completely at random. All Giveaways are conducted by Giveaway Supervisors and overseen by independent auditors. We have no idea, in advance, who the winners might be. It’s just as much of a surprise for us as it is for you! Over the years, the Prize Patrol has awarded prizes to winners of all walks of life throughout the U.S. Here are a couple of their winning moments:

    John Wyllie ($5,000 A Week “Forever”): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBDVkhAGA9A
    Brandon King ($10,000): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rakrf8w7lvg
    Gerard Rivera ($1.25 Million): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yBgh3mwITQ

    Every new entry is a new chance to win so don’t lose hope!

Everytime I play Pch and watch the Joy in people’s
Face my tears come out . And at times I see the dried es some winners receive their price instead of
Thanking God for being picked out of millions
Of players. I have never seen a winner in NYC that’s why my hopes are very low. Winners usually own their own home. That’s why my son usually tells me to stop dreaming of PCH. They will never come to the projects. My life has given me a 360 turn in just a few years. I can’t find a job. Just got divorced with 2 kids and no savings. My mom just passed away and I wanted to win so she can go in peace that we will be ok. I wish everyone lots of Luck. I wish God can someday stop the roulette in my name. I am wishing a one in a million wish but like they say “you never know”

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Juana D said...

I am a firm believer that PCH really exists but I would love to see Bob Sayer at my door with balloons and my check even $100 so my kids can believe me because they are always teasing me. Let me guess you playing PCH mahh please you not going to win lol lol it would be a great surprise lol lol for them.

If somebody won the week for life why am I still getting emails about it?

    PCH Staff said...

    Hi Michelle, the emails you’re referring to are promoting our Sweepstakes $5,000 A Week For Life, which is not associated with $5,000 A Week “Forever” that was awarded to Michael Miller of Moro, IL on August 29, 2013.

Rosemary Stanton said...

EVERYONE keeps telling me this isn’t real.They all say it’s fixed,I was hoping they are wrong. My Husband keeps saying all they want is for me to keep ordering stuff. I played years ago and NEVER won and I played through the August $5,000 a week for life and didn’t win that either.My Husband kept saying look they say there is a florist on Clinton called Cracklin Rose. We drove up & down Clinton there is no Florist on Clinton st. with that name.So I Guess my Husband is right. Boy did I feel like a fool. Shame on You guys and Shame on me for believing it was true. :(

I think it is great that someone so young won the PCH Forever Prize . Now he can make his dreams all come true and he won’t have to worry about where he will get money to pay bills or do what it is he wants to do. Congratulations Michael Miller! I followed Danielle’s page the whole time even after the clue that the winner’s state has more than 5 letters. I knew then it wasn’t me and my family since we live in Ohio. I hope Michael has a fantastic future and has tons of fun spending his winnings from PCH. He worked to put his entries in and it paid off for him and that is a great thing to see. Publishers Clearing House is full of wonderful people who I hope knows how great they are because they have helped so many and made so many dreams come true for so many and they do it and want nothing in return. It takes a special person to do what you all PCH Team does and I think there is a reason each and everyone of you PCH Employees are there at PCH. Thanks for all the exciting clues on the day of the Superprize being delivered by PCH Prize Patrol Elite. It is very exciting to follow all the clues on here and Danielle’s page and twitter.

hello pch staff, after losing the 5k forever opportunity, i basically quit & spent all my saved tokens on dominos gift cards. I am still though receiving emails about the 5k a week for life from giveaway 3080. when does that sweepstakes end ? because whilst entering for the 1830, i was getting several on the 3080, & i was entering on them as well. what is the deal on that?

I have been in this so called contest since 1977. Although these PCH people say 1988. And I have NEVER won a penny. And yet I keep trying,stupid me. I am not going to figure vowels and clues, so it looks like this is a losing deal. sorry. But this is strange to me. It seems rigged someway.
