Behind the Scenes as PCH Awards $5,000.00 A Week “Forever”

Greetings, fans and friends,

Today is not just any day … or any Thursday, for that matter … 

Drumroll, please …

It’s PCH Pay Day! 

That’s right, today, February 28, 2019, is not only the day we award a super-lucky-someone our $5,000.00 A Week “Forever” SuperPrize – $5,000.00 each week for the winner’s life, followed by $5,000.00 a week for the life of someone the winner chooses – it’s also the day we award cash prizes to over 150,000 winners. Yes, indeed, this just may be our WINNINGEST day ever!


The Prize Patrol is on the road, ready to award our guaranteed “Forever” Prize, and I know you’re all curious to know just where their final destination will be (and I’m also pretty sure you want that destination to be your hometown). Which is why you should come back to this PCH blog post throughout the day for exciting behind-the-scenes information and “clues from the road,” as featured on our social media pages! 

I know you won’t want to miss a beat – make it your business to visit this blog post all day long for a special look at how Danielle and Howie prepare to award this life-changing SuperPrize, as well a glimpse into the moment the incredible award is presented! And as this post is updated, feel free to add your comments below; we’d love to hear from you!

CONGRATULATIONS to Crystal Crawford of Jamaica, NY – the lucky recipient of our $5,000 A Week “Forever” Prize! Crystal was not at home but her son accompanied the Prize Patrol to Crystal’s office nearby for the big award. “It’s real!” exclaimed Crystal, and her advice to everyone was “Keep entering and keep the faith!” We’re so happy to make Crystal’s dreams come true!

Don’t forget, fans, to do these 3 things today:
1. Visit this blog post for exciting updates as the Prize Patrol awards our “Forever” Prize!

2. Tune in to our special Facebook Live streaming of our PCH Pay Day event, as we award over 150,000 other prizes to lucky winners around the country!

3. Check PCH’s other social media pages – Instagram and Twitter – for even more mind-boggling clues from the road and behind-the-scenes action!

And if it happens that if you are not a winner today, rest assured that the winning never stops at Publishers Clearing House, and there are tons of opportunities for you to enter every day.

Good luck!

    1. Hi Cheryl! That is not the real PCH calling you; it’s a scammer that’s only pretending to be from PCH. Please do not call that number, do not give the scammer any personal info including bank account information, and definitely do not send them any money if they ask. If you haven’t already done so, please report that scam contact to us via the following link: I encourage you to read these Safety Tips too: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

    1. Hi Shelvia! That’s definitely a scammer, NOT the real PCH. Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: PCH does partner with the Federal Trade Commission and we send all scam reports to them so please make sure you let us know anytime a scammer contacts you. Remember, the real PCH never notifies major prize winners via phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask winners to pay to claim their prize. You can see more Safety Tips here: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim.

  3. Yes I would like to be PCH winner it would be a life changing day for my family and community. We the whole world need to see you, PCH changing people life, God bless you as you continue to make the world smile. Take a bow! I’m in to win it!
