Real Winner Of PCH Sweepstakes Recounts Life Then And Now!

Hi everyone, it’s me Natalie Bostelman, a REAL WINNER of the PCH Sweepstakes!

Ah, July. July always seems to be extremely busy for me. Several family members and friends celebrated birthdays this month, I traveled a lot and, of course, there was Independence Day. But when I look back at the then and now, I realize that four years ago, it was even busier.

You see, in 2008, I was STRESSED. I was working at a local home interior store AND as a part-time bartender at our local theater. Oh, AND I had taken up another job as a personal assistant for an Insurance Broker. Did I mention that I was ALSO teaching once a week? I’m tired just thinking of it!

But you know what I always made time for? Entering ANY and EVERY way I could into the PCH Sweepstakes. In retrospect, it was one of the ways I could relieve my stress. It was FUN to go through my packets and to surf online. I entered through, PCHlotto, played PCHgames, and used PCHSearch&Win. In fact, PCHSearch&Win became a daily habit for me. Months earlier, I had won a $5 Amazon Gift Card through one of my searches. What a nice pay off! I think I purchased a book I had been eyeing for a few months.

Of course, the end game was to get my entries in for the BIGGER cash prizes, especially that SuperPrize! As I would fill out my entries, I would try to figure out what I would do with a Cash Windfall. I made a list. I’d pay off our bills, make donations to some local and national charities and build our dream home. Even if I didn’t win, the list was a nice goal.

Little did I know that the means to achieve those goals would be a’knockin’ at my door a month later. Yes, the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol came swooping in to give me the “Big Check” and make me a REAL WINNER!! You can CHECK out my winning moment here.

Within just a few moments, my life had completely changed. I could go down to ONE job! We could pay off our major bills! I could do my donating AND…

We went from this…

To THIS! My very own dream home!

Isn’t my then and NOW amazing? Well it could happen for you, too. THE COUNTDOWN IS ON! We’re exactly ONE MONTH AWAY from the Big SuperPrize Event. In just weeks, YOU could become a REAL winner of the PCH Sweepstakes just like me. Tell me…how would a visit from the Prize Patrol change YOUR life? Comment below.

  1. Hello PCH family and Natalie Bostelman. I am honored and grateful to find this blog. I am VipElite, and have been playing for10years 5months and some cents lol. I use PCH Search and Win everyday, and play everyday. I look up to you so much, and watch the videos all the time. If I won the Big sweepstakes, I would definitely give back to charity, as I do today with a limited income. I am located in Euclid Ohio, I don’t believe anyone has won there yet, but has around me. Being so determined to not give up and to continue entering. Living in an apartment, and just having two beautiful twin boys last year 2021, its a bit crammy, because now they are 7months and some cents lol. I would definitely buy me my dream house as well, and help my family, travel the world with my children. I know that PCH is real, because I am originally from Manhattan Kansas, and I was twelve years old and I seen with my two eyes the Publishers Clearing House Van on the left side of me, while I was sitting in the backseat while family and I were waiting for the traffic light to turn green. So many years back lol, plus I have won three small prizes, $25, $10, $10 over the years. I pray and hope my dreams come true one day just like yours did. Because playing everything, and using all the apps, PCH search and Win, PCH Frontpage, instant win, games, scratch offs, and literally entering in all the sweepstakes until there is nothing to do on my page anymore. One day with that consistency I will win the Big One. You inspire me so much that’s why I haven’t stopped, because you used PCH Search and Win, and also was located in Ohio, and the smile on your face was priceless when the PCH family came to your job. I am so happy for you today, and cannot wait to win that Big one as you did, I will not give up.
