PCH Products Make Dorothy’s Barbecue Sizzle!

Dorothy Stevens, the PCH Cook & Food Stylist, turns up the heat on Summertime fun with great PCH Products like the 49 Piece Storage Set, Green Cooler Bag and Corn Stripper!

Hey Blog Readers,

With summer in full swing, people are grilling just about every single weekend in my neighborhood.  They just love the no-muss, no-fuss Summer living lifestyle — and believe me, I’m all for it!  But the thing I’ve noticed most about outdoor eating is that, no matter how prepared you are, something is ALWAYS forgotten from inside.  And the host has to go back and forth at least 20 times before being able to focus on the food … and their friends.

That’s why I’m here on the blog today — to give you some tips to make sure you don’t spend your Summer sun-time running inside the house.  Take a look!  And keep reading because I’ve got another “secret” tip that makes eating grilled corn even more delicious!

I couldn’t believe how much time I saved just by packing the Large Green Cooler Bag!

And the 49-Piece Storage Set we sell here at PCH even has a REVOLVING ORGANIZER — which makes the right size easy to find every time I grill!

But that’s not all!  My “secret” to delicious corn was inspired by something I found recently when I searched for Corn Recipes on PCHSearch&Win!  Give it a try and you’re sure to be amazed!

If you’re grilling 8 ears of corn, you’ll need:

1/3 cup butter

1 teaspoon of garlic salt

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Just mix the butter and garlic salt over low heat in a saucepan until the butter is melted.  Then, brush the mix on your corn, wrap your corn in foil and grill.  Once, it’s cooked, sprinkle with delicious Parmesan cheese for a taste that’s sure to have guests asking for seconds!

You may be thinking that this sounds a little too messy for barbecue fare, but remember, serving and eating corn is easy with the incredible Corn Stripper we sell here at PCH!  Just a simple swipe gets the kernels off the cob!  And the bite-size pieces are great for keeping little hands clean, too!

Do You Know The Signs Of A PCH Imposter Scam?

PCH Phone Scams

Hello PCH fans!

When someone mentions the name Publishers Clearing House (PCH), what comes to mind? Could it be the chance to WIN BIG with our fantastic sweepstakes? Maybe it is the possibility to win instantly with PCHSearch&Win, or hit a jackpot with PCHlotto? No matter what it is, PCH loves nothing more than to making dreams come true for folks all across the country!

Unfortunately, there are a TON of scammers out there fraudulently posing as PCH, just eager to tell innocent folks like you and me that they have won a prize. But beware because these scammers are not from the REAL Publishers Clearing House. They are just trying to rob you of your hard-earned money.

Today, I want to warn everyone that these PCH imposter scams can happen to ANYONE. And I mean ANYONE! In fact, just a few weeks ago, my OWN father was scammed via telephone by someone claiming they were from PCH. Talk about messing with the wrong person, right?

It all started a few weeks ago when I got a phone call from my mom. She said: “Your father got a phone call from someone at PCH telling him that we have won their Super Prize. Clearly this isn’t true, right?

 I quickly explained to her that it was DEFINITELY a PCH imposter scam! For starters, PCH employees and their families are not eligible to win any of our sweepstakes prizes. Also, the Prize Patrol NEVER notifies major prize winners by phone. If you’ve won a big SuperPrize, you’ll know when the Prize Patrol shows up at your door with a Big Check.

I must say I was pretty shocked to hear that my own family member had been hit with a PCH scam. Curiously I asked my mom what they had said to my father on the phone. “Well she said, “The guy on the other end told him that he had won the SuperPrize and he told the man that there was no way he could have won because he didn’t enter and that his daughter works for PCH. The guy told him that he really had won and would call him back tomorrow with the name and address of where to send the money to collect the prize. I knew right then it couldn’t be real

I must say I was relieved! Thankfully, my family was smart enough to know that this “imposter” on the other end of the phone was not in any way associated with the real Publishers Clearing House.

I want to make sure all you PCH fans know how to spot a PCH imposter scam. Remember that PCH will NEVER ask you to do ANY of the following if you are indeed a winner:

• The Prize Patrol NEVER notifies major prize winners by phone.

• The Prize Patrol NEVER notifies major prize winners by Facebook. And they don’t send friend requests either!

And here are two additional tips that may help you identify scam communications:

•  PCH does NOT use the phrase “US dollars

• No one from PCH will contact you via a Gmail or Yahoo account

Even though these are some of the BIGGEST telltale signs that you have been scammed, there are always new techniques out there that scammers will use to get your money. So any time you have even the slightest feeling that you are being scammed, look for these red flag warning signs!

Comment below and let us know if you found these warning signs helpful! Also let us know if you’ve been a victim of a PCH scam. We’d really like to hear about it in order to keep all our fans safe!

SPECIAL UPDATE: What Prize Will Be On The Big Check On June 30th?

Find Out How PCH Winners Are Selected

Hi Everyone!

Whenever we get a question from our PCH fans we always do our best to answer it! One way we answer questions is by enlisting the help of Howie from Publishers Clearing House. In the past Howie has been able to answer all sorts of questions such as, “what is a special early look?” or, “how many times can you enter the SuperPrize each day?” or, “is it true that someone with my initials will win?”. Today we are answering the question, “how are winners selected?”

This is a GREAT question that has come up a lot, and with our next prize event just days away, we decided to turn to Howie to get the scoop!

As you can see, it really is just the luck of the draw! The PCH giveaway supervisors randomly select a winner from the pool of entries. The winner is always a surprise, even to us! What does this mean for you? It means that it doesn’t matter what state you live in, how much money you make, what ethnicity you are, how old you are, or if you live in a house, apartment or trailer. Publishers Clearing House winners are always chosen completely at random and as long as you enter, the winner could be YOU.

Keep sending in your questions and we’ll keep answering them!
