Are Those PCH Winners Real?

Greetings, fans and friends,

Whenever I tell people that I work for Publishers Clearing House, I always get the same response: “Are those PCH winners real?

I always make it a point to answer that PCH is very real, and that those folks you see jumping for joy in the TV commercials are real winners, and definitely not actors!

You know who else believes that PCH is real? The winners of smaller prizes, several of whom I feature every month on this blog. These happy winners are “in it to win it” and – guess what? They’ve won it … and they’re ready to possibly win even more when Giveaway #4900 ends just 16 days from now!

So, let’s meet some of these smaller prize winners with very big dreams:

Sweepstakes Winner William

William B. (pictured above with his adorable dog) won a $100 gift card while searching on PCHSearch&Win. He also won a $100 check from PCH playing on one of the many PCH game sites.

“I visit every day.” Says William. “I play and enter on all the PCH sites daily and it has become the part of my daily routine because it has paid off for me!”

Sweepstakes Winner Carolyn

Carolyn S. (pictured above) won $100 cash, and says, “I’ll keep entering, but do look forward to the BIG Check with the flowers and the balloons!” Congratulations on your win, Carolyn!

Sweepstakes Winner Warren

Warren V. (pictured above) won $250 cash on PCHSearch&Win. Warren wants you all to know that winning takes persistence, but it sure is worth the wait:

I was pleasantly surprised when I was using Search and Win when a pop-up came up saying I had won $250! I am into my sixth year of trying to win from various emails from Publishers Clearing House and when the pop-up showed, I was, to say the least, skeptical. But it was true! And now that I have won once, I’m not about to give up now! I know there is a “Forever” prize with my name on it, and I believe that you can’t win, if you don’t play, so I urge anyone who wants to win to play! 

Last, but not least, Esther S. wants you all to know that she has been “in it to win it” since 2010 and has won some small prizes like gift cards. She once even received a $1,000 check from Publishers Clearing House!

Esther remembers how happy she was to receive her prizes, and couldn’t imagine her reaction if she won a SuperPrize. A woman of faith, Esther believes that a higher power will decide her fate, and she will never give up trying.

“I wish everyone entering the PCH Sweeps luck,” says Esther. “I thank PCH, the Prize Patrol, and all PCH workers for the opportunities and great work you do for us, and I congratulate all the winners … the bigger winners and the small prize winners. All of them deserve to be winners.”

Wow, Esther, I couldn’t have said it better!

So, there you go! If you’re wondering “are those PCH winners real?” now you know for sure! Real people do win real prizes from Publishers Clearing House! And speaking of real prizes, it doesn’t get more real or more exciting than this …

On February 26th, the Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol will definitely award the tremendous $5,000 A Week “Forever” Prize – $5,000 every week for life for the lucky winner, and after that, $5,000 every week for life for someone the winner chooses.

And all you need to do to “be in it to win it” is to enter today … and every day … in every way you can! 

Good luck!

  1. I won the word finder tournament game on my smartphone on May 24, 2022 but NEVER received the $100. I think it’s because I haven’t bought anything from them in years.
