How Can I Find More Of The Merchandise PCH Sells?

If you’re a regular reader of the PCH blog, you’ve probably seen reviews of some of the amazing products available at Publishers Clearing House. But, have you ever wondered: How can I find more of the merchandise that PCH sells? Well, I can point you in the right direction.

But first, I’m going to take you on a little walk down PCH memory lane to 1953 when Harold and LuEsther Mertz started Publishers Clearing House by featuring deeply discounted magazine offers, eventually becoming a household name.  Then in 1985, the company expanded their offerings by adding a wide variety of merchandise to the mix. And what a wonderful selection of items PCH carries!  Some of our most popular merchandise categories are horticulture, kitchen items, books and those amazing  “As Seen On TV” products!

But, please keep in mind that you NEVER need to purchase anything in order to enter to win. Entering the PCH sweepstakes is always free — and that’s the law!
But, back to our PCH merchandise!  Our buyers travel the world to select items they think our customers will enjoy — it’s a job they take very seriously. PCH products are selected with our customers in mind with special attention to quality, value and style.

I’ve tried a number of PCH products. Personally I think the kitchen gadgets are the best. What about you? Have you tried any of the PCH merchandise? If yes, let us know what you think!
All the best!

PCH Blog Shout-Outs to Two of Our Biggest PCH Fans!

We sure do love our fans!

One of the most fun things I get to do on my job is review the comments you all post on the PCH Blog,the PCHSearch&Win Blog and the PCHPlay&Win blog. Many of you give us such interesting stories – and I can always count on seeing so many of the same folks commenting every day when I read the blogs. Thank you so much for your support and enthusiasm!

So today, I thought I’d do a “shout out” to 2 fans whose names always appear in the comments section of the blogs: Natasha D. and Marianne C.

Fan Shout-Out

Natasha is one spirited lady! She always comments with a “Woo Hoo!” and it always makes me picture her with a BIG smile on her face. In fact, take a look at her photo … why, there it is!

Natasha PCH Fan

I contacted Natasha after reading her comments on our blog about “winning streaks.”. Natasha told us she DOES believe in winning streaks and that she is definitely “in it to win it.” A mother of 3 from Indiana, Natasha says she enters the PCH Sweeps every single day, on all sites including PCH Lotto, PCH Online Surveys, PCH Bingo, PCH Slots, and she’s been entering for 3 years! Like many of us, she thinks about winning all the time and would be “shocked, happy and nervous” if she met the Prize Patrol.

Natasha says, “If I won BIG I would pay my debts, bills and taxes, and get a new home for me and my family, and a car, of course. I would love to go back to school online and get my Associate’s Degree and start over with a fresh life.”

What’s her advice to our blog readers and fans? “Never give up on anything in life!”

I LOVE that!

Marianne also responded to our blog on “winning streaks.” Marianne makes Publishers Clearing House a part of her daily life! Years ago, she tells us, she entered the PCH sweeps through the mail, and since 2007 she has been entering all the PCH online sweepstakes.

Marianne PCH Fan

“I enter all the sweepstakes every day!” she tells us. I start out on Prize Central in the morning, go to PCH search & Win, PCH Frontpage and work my way to and enter all the game plays all the way to PCH Games. Then at night, I enter PCH Twilight Lotto!!

Marianne felt like her “winning streak” began when she won $50.00 on PCHSearch&Win. She was so excited she almost couldn’t believe it. She then won another $25.00 on PCHSearch&Win! Her favorite prize, however, was the $5.00 Amazon Gift Card she won on Edwin’s Hatch & Win, with which she bought a gift for a relative. And … just recently, Marianne won $10.00 cash on PCHLotto and another $5.00 gift card from the Lucky Loot Wheel on the PCH Fan Page on Facebook.

“I’m in it to WIN BIG!” exclaims Marianne. “And one day I will!! When I see the Prize Patrol at my door I will sit down and cry!”

Marianne’s advice to our blog readers and fans: Don’t give up, keep positive thoughts!!  All it takes is to win is to enter and play for fun … plus it’s all free!!”

Our fans are super-positive, and they’re super-nice, too! I think that one of the nicest comments we’ve received lately was from our fan Dennis S., who enjoys being part of our blog community.

Dennis finds our fans’ comments on the PCH blog helpful through stressful days, and they help him with a positive outlook throughout the day. Although he believes that the money PCH gives away is worthwhile, he feels that our fans’ encouragement to never give up is even better. He wants everyone out there to “never quit believing,” and as he says, the Prize Patrol van is “always around the corner.”

I couldn’t have said it better.

Keep commenting, dear fans and friends, and who knows, we could feature YOU in a PCH Blog “Shout-Out” next!

Another Publishers Clearing House prize delivery proves dreams come true!

On April 30 the PCH Prize Patrol surprised Penny Pompa of Monroe, CT, with a Million Dollar SuperPrize. The award was “Truly a miracle” said Penny, having prayed just that morning for help because she was losing her house.

Ronald Tomilson

Penny wasn’t the only one to experience such unexpected good fortune that morning. The Prize Patrol was also in McAllen, Texas, where we presented another Big Check – this one for $10,000.00 – to Ron Tomlinson.

Ron’s emotional reaction at the “winning moment” was no less significant than Penny’s. He has an adult son in need of major surgery, and this prize will allow the potentially life-saving medical treatment to begin. Watch the video below to see the surprise award.

Another grateful resident of Ron’s house is Curly, a beautiful English Setter, who took in the whole event calmly while two other more excitable dogs were ushered to another room. We always love it when there are “lucky dogs” present.

PCH Winner Ronald Tomilson

Heartfelt experiences like these of Ron and Penny have been seen countless times over the years by the Prize Patrol. We often arrive “just in the nick of time” to forestall a home foreclosure, fund a vital medical procedure or provide urgently needed cash for a leaky roof, back rent or those mounting bills that cause sleepless nights.

Well, as you can see, dreams DO come true at Publishers Clearing House.

Speaking of dreams, have you heard about our newest prize offering? It’s The “Dream Life” Prize — with all the ingredients for the life of your dreams: $2 Million immediately PLUS $10,000 A Month for Life PLUS a brand new Lincoln MKZ worth over $37,000! Enter as often as possible and you could “Win It All” on June 30th as part of our Special Early Look Event!

Sweet dreams and good luck!

What Do You Dream About? We’d Love To Know!

Hi PCH fans!

Thanks for celebrating “Dream Week” with us! For our last day, we wanted to ask you: how many of you out there love to daydream? Sometimes it’s a great way to just let your mind wander and to explore all of life’s sweet possibilities, even if it is just in your imagination!

Well, you can see that the woman in this fun new PCH “Daydream” video is doing just that. Check it out!

Can you picture yourself doing that? Let us know what you think about our new video in the comments section below!

How to Harness The Power of Your Dreams!



Do you ever find yourself thinking “What If”?  Does your imagination wander and take you to another place, another time, or even another dimension (wow, that’s really daydreaming!)

 It’s Time To Try Turning Your Dreams Into Reality!

Maybe you dream about reaching a certain goal —it could be losing weight, buying a home, starting your own business, paying off bills, you name it. Rest assured that you have plenty of company! In life and in work, people everywhere are discovering the power of “visualization” to give them the motivation they need to start turning their dreams into reality.

The premise is simple. In order to make something happen you need to visualize it in your mind first. In other words, sometimes just picturing something happening can be the first step toward actually making it happen.

It’s what athletes use to attain peak performance and professionals in all fields now use for success on the job. And anyone can use it. It’s actually pretty fascinating!

Athletes often say after a winning play that they rehearsed it in their mind over and over before the game. Studies show that visualization actually “hardwires” your brain, and that once you practice what it would be like to reach your goal by playing it over in your mind, you will start to take the necessary steps to get there without even realizing it!

Now Picture This!

Here’s something exciting to spark your imagination! Why not start picturing in your mind what it would be like for you to win our Dream Life Prize in our Special Early Look Event on June 30. We’re ready to award a lucky winner with $2 Million right away … $10,000.00 A Month For Life … plus a brand new Lincoln MKZ! 


Can you imagine that? I mean really imagine that! Just get comfortable, close your eyes and picture yourself answering the knock on the door, the Prize Patrol Elite team standing there with a BIG check, the flowers, the balloons. And then what it would be like to win it all — to have that kind of money all at once … how the checks would keep rolling in every month, year after year for life! Picture yourself driving around in a brand new Lincoln MKZ! Go on … don’t leave out any details!

Now you can certainly sit there and dream away, but you will need to TAKE ACTION and ENTER every chance you get  for your chance to make your dream come true. Come on, what are you waiting for?

Remember, even if it seems impossible and out of your reach, don’t give up on your dream! Use your imagination to rehearse what your winning moment would be like and then enter every chance you get. You never know, the Prize Patrol Elite team could knock on your door on June 30th with the BIG check. And it could change your life forever!

“Still A Dream”: Leroy Faulks Still Feels The “Winning” Years Later!

I don’t know about you, but I’m always thinking about the GOOD LIFE. You know what I mean, right? Being able to do what you want to do, WHEN you want to do it!

Still A Dream Leroy Faulks

Well since it’s Dream Week, we thought it was the perfect time to do a fun “Throwback Thursday” and revisit a SuperPrize winner from a few years ago whose dream of the GOOD LIFE is real and still going strong!

When I caught up with 2011’s $1 Million PLUS $5,000.00 A Week For Life Mega Prize winner Leroy Faulks, he was preparing to go on yet ANOTHER cruise with his wife!

“We go on so many cruises, people have gotten to ask us ‘so, where you going now?,’” laughs Leroy. “It’s become a running joke with our friends.”

Leroy Faulks Vacation Picture

I love chatting with Leroy and his sweet wife, and a huge cash prize like this couldn’t have happened to a nicer pair. In fact, Leroy’s wife Cecilia was volunteering at a local soup kitchen when the Prize Patrol arrived with his Big Check! And just as you’d expect, people with such big hearts give back all the time.

“We donate money all the time. We give to St. Jude, Sickle Cell Anemia foundations, the American Cancer Society, churches, our local soup kitchen,” explains Leroy. “In fact, last year we were visiting a youth program in Jacksonville, and we loved what they were doing so much we gave them $500.00 on the spot. It is just such a good feeling to be able to help spontaneously like that.”

They also financially assist family when they need it, and with 8 grandchildren and 8 more GREAT-grandchildren, that certainly adds up!

But like all dreams, there are some surreal moments as well! Just last year, Leroy received a phone call from a relative when they saw his face in a PCH advertisement in the local paper. And nothing could prepare them for when Publishers Clearing House was one of the clues on the TV game show Jeopardy! , but it got weirder when the clue came with a picture of Leroy and his Big Check right on the show!

All strange moments aside, LeRoy tells us that life is just so much easier. Especially with two new cars (a fun Mercedes and a sensible Toyota), some cool, new camera gear (Leroy likes to take pictures), it all adds up to make a life that Leroy is proud to call “a life of no worries.”

“You’ve got to be ‘in-it-to-win-it,’ is what I tell people. And dreams do come true, because I always say, ‘hey, I’m set for life!’”

Leroy Faulks Living the Dream

Yup, as Leroy was telling himself the morning of this interview, he can do whatever he wants. And thankfully this dream come true isn’t one he has to worry about waking up from. It’s still a dream years later, and he’s won for life!

Remember, YOU could make your dreams come true, too! So enter today and every day for our new Dream Life Prize: an incredible $2,000,000 to spend right away, $10,000 a month for a life, and a brand new car!
