Does Publishers Clearing House Ever Give Away The BIG Prize?

The answer is YES, Publishers Clearing House definitely gives away the BIG Prize! And $5,000 A Week “Forever” Prize Winner Tamar Howard Is Living Proof!

Publishers Clearing House gives away prizes every single day of the year. And you blog readers know that we proudly talk about those prize awards every chance we get! But, there may be a few people out there that wonder – does Publishers Clearing House ever give away the BIG prize (you know, the one we show on TV).

The answer, of course, is YES! Just ask Tamar Howard of Silas, Alabama. She’s our most recent winner of $5,000 A Week “Forever” (joining the likes of Michael Miller and John Wyllie in our “Forever” Prize Winners Hall Of Fame!)

And Tamar’s the first person to tell you she’s had quite the year! After receiving an incredible $5,000.00 A Week For Life, plus after that, $5,000.00 A Week For Life to the beneficiary of her choice, her whole life changed. Not only is she building a brand new home AND planning a trip to Jamaica, but she also got to pass on an incredibly legacy to her daughter – all a result of winning the PCH “Forever” Prize! It’s hard to think of things that aren’t possible for her now!

Let’s take a look back at her winning moment:



Just a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of bringing Tamar and her family to visit PCH Headquarters in Port Washington, New York. It was the first time many PCHers got to meet them, and we all had a great time!

Here’s a picture of Tamar and her family getting the red carpet treatment from Publishers Clearing House!

Tamar Howard Forever Prize winner

While Tamar was excited to visit our offices (and later the Big Apple!), it soon became clear that nothing was ever going to top winning an amazing $5,000 A Week “Forever” prize!

“It still feels like a dream, but everyday people remind me that it’s real!,” said Tamar.

There isn’t much that Tamar has to worry about now. She has a new house being built and she knows that her beneficiary (her eldest daughter) will be taken care of long after she’s gone.

Let’s stop there for a minute. Can you even imagine what it would be like to pass on a legacy like that to someone you love? I had to ask Tamar what the moment was like when she told her daughter:

“She was super excited. She didn’t cry, but she was jumping up and down. But I don’t think it has sunk in yet for her.”

Then, we asked her daughter what the other kids at her school thought about the prize, and her answer was surprising: “Some of them didn’t believe it, and others thought it was a scam. But they’ve all started believing now.”

Forever Prize Winner and family

While Tamar’s daughter has plenty of time to get used to being the future recipient of $5,000 A Week For Life, Tamar has already gladly accepted all of the changes that come with winning such a huge prize.  She talks about it so much, she often feels like she’s a PCH employee!

“Some people in my town think I work for PCH and that I didn’t really win, but obviously that’s not true…most people know me as the PCH prize winner. They recognize me and stop me all the time. They all want to know how often I played…which was every day, pretty much! I played different games, a few times a day. You know, I would play Lotto, PCHgames, stuff like that. Then [the people who don’t believe] will say, ‘oh, I’ll start doing that too!’”

Tamar currently keeps the Big Check in her living room so that she can see it when she’s on the couch. When she builds her new home, she plans on hanging it on a wall.  It is there as a reminder that dreams can come true, and that good things can happen… you just have to be “in it to win it!”

Tamar’s message for all of you is: “Just Enter! Just Do It!”  After all, she did it, and now she has a prize that not only has changed her life, but the life of her loved ones…forever!

So remember, the answer to the question “does Publishers Clearing House ever give away the big prize?” is a resounding YES. And if you want to be next, you know what to do…ENTER TODAY!
