Winning The PCH Sweepstakes Changed My Life!


Hey there, Everyone!

It’s your friendly Neighborhood PCH Goodwill Ambassador, Natalie! As a former SuperPrize Winner, I get asked a lot of questions. “What did you do with the money after you won?”  “How did your life change?” “Is it real?? Did the Prize Patrol really visit you?”

YES! It’s REAL, and the Prize Patrol really DID visit me. You can see my winning moment below, complete with the big check, balloons and flowers!

My life definitely changed – I was no longer working three jobs (yes, that’s not a typo, THREE) we paid off our debts and built our dream home. In fact, after winning my SuperPrize, I’ve been lucky enough to be on the other side of the winning – by helping the Prize Patrol deliver a few BIG CHECKS!

Other than paying off those bills and building our dream home, another thing that my SuperPrize win afforded myself and my husband was the ability to take more time off, like take a two week long vacation!

Our first trip was with my husband’s family to the Upper Peninsula. ‘The…what?’ You ask? If you are not from my general neck of the woods, it is the second part of Michigan, above the “mitten”.

The land is so green, air so clean and the skies… cloudy. But we still managed to have fun! We took a ferry over to an island with a famous hotel. (What hotel? What island? The hotel was featured in “Somewhere in Time”. You can search for it using PCHSearch&Win!) We enjoyed a local favorite, Whitefish Dip, at one of our favorite restaurants, the Pink Pony.


We also visited two beautiful parks. The first featured Upper and Lower falls that were BROWN! No, it is not because of pollution. We visited Tahquamenon Falls and learned why the water had this odd color. (You can find out what makes the water brown through PCHSearch&Win!) Then we hopped in the car and headed to the lake to beat all lakes. It IS named “Superior” after all!

It was my first time visiting this Great Lake, as well as the “Pictured Rocks”. They were absolutely beautiful. But one thing that stood out was this lone tree, sitting atop of one of the formations. Apparently it is quite old, and the root system used to be supported by a natural bridge. That bridge collapsed, and yet the roots were strong enough to survive. Amazing.

Then we took ONE day off so that we could prepare for another family vacation. This time with MY family!

On this leg of our vacation, we decided to kick things up a notch on our trip to Colorado.

First kick – we flew First Class! The flight attendants were wonderful and we got hot towels! Whoo hoo!

Second kick – we rented a car. Our car was supposed to be a normal sedan, but Scott thought, “Eh, let’s see what else is available. Let’s get something FUN.” We did! We rented a Mercedes!

Third kick – We decided to take a day trip to the place that inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write the poem, “Pike’s Peak”, but you probably know it by another name. (Take another spin on PCHSearch& Win!)

We took the Cog Railroad up the mountain, and marveled in the beautiful sights, including Long Horn Sheep and the view Ms. Bates had that inspired her famous poem. We were truly on top of the world.

I bet that you would be ‘on top of the world’ as well if you won the latest SuperPrize! $7,000 A Week For Life is the LARGEST weekly lifetime prize we’ve ever offered! What would you do if you suddenly became a millionaire? Would you travel in style like we did? How about simply taking it easy and retiring?

  1. First of all I want to congratulate you and your family on a PCH “Superprize”! I can only imagine your heart pounding when you literally saw the Patrol Gang right before your eyes! I might need a chair to sit down! It’s an amazing feeling the stress of financial burdens without funds to pay them. Some days I go without food, just so I can pay for my phone to play PCH. I’ve been in disability with PTSD amongst chronic pain for a few years now and have always worked my whole life to give my kids the best I could and always help others. But being on the other side of the coin now, I can count on one hand those that still want to hang with me now that I have no money. It’s dad, but true. I cry myself to sleep most nights wishing I could go see my friend kids and grsnd babies , just to hold, kiss and love them. from working to going on disability is a drastic difference. . ii know my drems w8ll come true too! Thus December I hope to meet you when PCH brings my ” Bug Check”, so I can get my teeth replaced that were knocked out, because I love to smile and see others smile back. And I can buy a dream home and move out of a room I rent. I will be the happiest woman in the world, next to you of course. I cry that I can’t even buy my dead sister any flowers, so I will give her all my roses and put a nice headstine i. It that she deserves. She is my Angel and I know she sees me struggling without letting others know and will help from the universe and heavens to pick my lucky number to win. After my teeth getting fixed, I want to build a homeless shelter for veterans. It us so sad that they have been kicked to the wayside allot with PTSD too. It’s almost impossible to work. I will see to it that those lives I touch, will be well fed and gave warm foid, clothes and blankets and comfortable beds. I have so many dreams to fulfill before my time us up. I KNOW I will WUN the ” Big Check” Dec 2015! Keep on enjoying being happy and making others happy too. Giving is as fun as receiving to me! God bless.
