Can YOU Be A PCH Winner?

Do You Have The Qualifications To Become A PCH Winner?” It’s a question that has a simple answer.

Spoiler Alert – the answer is probably “YES!,” but let’s take a closer look at both the question AND the answer so you’re fully prepared!

When you see our winning moments in our TV commercials, you probably imagine what it’d be like to be on the receiving end of that Big Check. But you may also wonder, “Do I have what it takes to actually win a big SuperPrize?”

Do I have to live in a house? No, you don’t. Our winners are frequently found in apartments, trailers – one of our millionaires was even renting someone’s garage when the Prize Patrol showed up!

Do you have to be a certain age to win from PCH? We have winners of many different ages. Fan favorite winner Ora Gayton was in her 90’s when she won, and Ryan Hart was in his early 20’s!

Do I have to enter every day? All valid (meaning, timely entered) entries have an equal chance to be selected the winner. That makes being chosen a PCH winner a level playing field — literally anyone can enter, from the person who’s been entering for decades to the person who just heard about PCH last week. But the truth is, you never know which entry could win it for you, so enter as much as you can! The advice we hear frequently from our winners says it best: “Enter Every Day in Every Way!”

Do I need to pay money to be qualified as a winner or to receive my prize? Please pay attention to this answer!! You never EVER have to pay money to enter a Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. They are 100% FREE. And if you ever have someone reach out to you on social media asking for money so they can give you a PCH prize, they are a SCAMMER. Report their account to the social network you’re on and fill out our Scam Report Form here.

So wait…I can REALLY win from PCH? Yes you can! Take a moment and look at our Winners Circle YouTube page. See the variety of PCH winners? The diversity of the kinds of people who win? They’re all like you and your friends and neighbors. Real people really do win! But you can’t win just by reading this blog. You have to get your entry in for the next drawing. And if you don’t win that one, then enter the next one…and keep on going!

You’ve got the qualifications to win … all you have to do is stay “in it to win it”. So keep on entering and maybe we’ll find you in our Winner’s Circle some day!

  2. i NEVER give up. I pray every day (FIRST-thanking God for every thing he has already blessed me and my loving wife with. I was in the US Air Force for 21 years and retired. After that I was asked to become a Federal Police Officer because of my security level I had retined for the Air Force and I accepted that and I was doing another duty for my country again. My wife stood by me during my careers. BUT—in my 21st year from the Federal Police position, I was in a terrible heas on collision on my way home….this happened in JAN 1998. It put me down. GOD and my lovly wife have always been by my side all of these years. I am bed bound and can’t walk but thats ok too. I still have my GOD and wife and my Children and grandchildren we all love each other very much. PCH has afforded me an outlet to keep me and my mind aharp. Thank you. All we need now is to pay off our home and buy a van that will accomidate my electric wheelchair. GOD bless PCH for helping every day with ways to keep my mind focused. I personally want to thank all of the staff for what you do. GOD BLESS.
