What’s The First Thing You’d Buy If You Won A Big Check?

Do you ever dream about the first thing you’d buy if you won a Big Check? I do, and as a PCH employee, I’m not even eligible to win those life-changing fortunes. But a girl can dream.


When I was little, I spent a lot of time daydreaming. I envisioned swimming with dolphins, flying through the clouds and meeting a valiant prince who would sweep me away to a beautiful castle where we would live happily forever. Now as an adult, my daydreams have changed a bit. But I have to admit, I still dream of that castle… well… a more practical version of one – aka my dream home.

I would love to know what you daydream about – more specifically – what is the first thing YOU would buy if you won a Big Check ? I think many of us wish we could afford things that would improve our quality of life or the lives of our loved ones – like me and my dream home. (Ah… how I would love a huge fenced-in yard for my sweet doggie to run and roam… and dig, unfortunately).

Curious what others craved, I turned to our PCHSearch&Win Facebook page for some answers and discovered that I’m in great company! So many people said the first thing they would buy if they won a Big Check is a new home! I guess they call it the American dream for a reason, right? Some other popular responses were: a new car, to travel the world, to pay off a mortgage, to help a loved one in need, to be able to donate to charities and so many more.

One thing’s for certain: everyone has dreams, and PCH has been able to help those dreams come true . In fact, this December, PCH will be looking for a winner of the Winner’s Choice Prize, where someone could receive $10,000 A Week For Life OR instead choose $10 Million all at once. A fortune like that sure would change someone’s life forever, and that someone could be you!


But honestly, fulfilling millionaire-making dreams isn’t so unusual at PCH. Did you know that Publishers Clearing House and its properties have awarded over $290 Million since 1967? That’s a lot of “Big Checks,” a lot of incredibly happy people and a lot of dreams that have come true… and yours could too! So don’t forget to go to PCHSearch&Win — because with your first search of the day after logging on, you’ll be entered to win Ten Thousand Dollars A Week For Life. And be sure to tell us below: what is the first thing YOU would buy if YOU won a Big Check?
