Greetings, PCH fans,
Have you ever stopped to think about all the ways you can win something each and every day? Think about it. There are call-in contests on radio stations, giveaways online and in stores, and so much more. If you really think about it, we’re surrounded by opportunities every day, and let me tell you, fans, I make sure to take advantage of every single one. Why do I bother, you ask? Well, this really all stems from the fact that in my 6 years here at Publishers Clearing House, I’ve seen REAL people win REAL prizes each and every day.
So, as you all know by now, PCH employees and their families aren’t eligible to win any of our fantastic sweepstakes. Even though I can’t win here (but remember, YOU can!), it hasn’t stopped me from entering every other contest, sweepstakes and giveaway out there that I can get my hands on.
Actually, one of the very first times I started noticing sweepstakes in the most random places was after a shopping trip back in college to one of my favorite stores, TJ Maxx. At the very bottom of my receipt I noticed that there was a link for a survey that gained you entry into a $500 gift card giveaway! Now, for a poor college kid, that was my dream come true so of course I took a shot and entered anyway. I didn’t win, unfortunately, but that didn’t stop me.
Now, fast forward to the present time, and I will tell you, fans, I have not changed my ways one bit. I still enter every single sweepstakes I can. In fact, a few weeks ago I was sitting at my kitchen counter with my stack of receipts to grocery stores, retail stores and pet stores, all containing sweepstakes opportunities and my husband happened to walk in with a confused look. I explained to him what I was doing, and he asked, “Do you think anyone ever wins that stuff?” and before he could even catch a breath I said, “Well, of course! I work for a SWEEPSTAKES COMPANY. Someone has to win, and it might as well be me!” He laughed, but one day when I walk away with one of those gift cards I’ll be really excited to prove him wrong!
So, what does this all mean for you lucky folks who can win right here at PCH? It means that you should NEVER give up and continue to enter every single day. I still haven’t won my gift card yet, but trust me, I won’t stop until I do, and neither should you! Remember, REAL people win REAL prizes, but you have to be in it to win it!
Best Of Luck!
