#WinnerWednesday: Real PCH Winner Stories!

Greetings, fans and friends!

Do you like reading real PCH winner stories? I know you do! Which is why I love to reach out to winners of smaller PCH prizes who comment on the blog and ask them to share their winning moments with you.

This week, our #WinnerWednesday blog features 4 real, honest-to-goodness PCH winners – Alisa, Rosalinda, Trish and Carrie – who are thrilled to say they’ve truly won a Publishers Clearing House prize!

Alisa W. (there she is pictured at the top of this page with her checks) won $10 in August 2019 and $10 in January 2020, and she’s been entering the PCH Sweeps “for 25 years and 8 months.” “I’m waiting for PCH to make it rain, to come from heaven like a shower,” she says about the money she further hopes to win. Her advice to all you PCH fans and friends is “PCHers, don’t ever give up. You will lose if you do.”

Rosalinda L. writes, “I received a $20.00 win not too long ago. It made me a believer that PCH does deliver. I’ve been playing for years. I’m hoping for a bigger win someday, maybe.”

Rosalinda tells me she has been playing PCH games for the last 20 years, at first through mail and recently through sent emails. “I keep submitting mostly for ‘hopefully’ and the ‘what if factor’,” she explains.

Trish P. is very excited to be a PCH winner and writes, “I received a PCH $10 check a year or so ago and immediately went to the bank and presented it to the teller like it was a bar of gold! LOL!!! I’ve been entering the PCH sweepstakes since 2013 (or earlier) off and on when time allowed me, and the $10 was the first time ever that I won anything.”

“I retired in 2019, which has given me more time to enter the PCH Sweepstakes!” Trish explains. “I’ve really hooked into the “Searches” and find the searches so informative, but I also play the Lotto games, the Sweepstakes, the VIP games, Quizzes, enter all the token sweeps, and respond to every PCH email notifying me of another game entry opportunity. My morning coffee is spent with!”

Last but not least on today’s #WinnerWednesday blog, we have Carrie J., who tells us, “I have won two $5.00 checks back-to-back and I am on cloud nine. It might not seem like much to some but to me it’s everything.” In fact, Carrie says, “I was so excited, I did a happy dance and I have two left feet hahaha!”

“I have been entering every day for about two years now every chance I can get,” adds Carrie, whose absolute favorite games are the lotto scratch-offs. “I believe I will win, it’s only a matter of time.”

Congratulations, Alisa, Rosalinda, Trish and Carrie! And congrats to all our friends and fans who have ever won a PCH prize! I look forward to reading about your “winning moments” in the comments below and maybe even sharing your stories with readers of future #WinnerWednesday blogs.

And if you’re not yet a PCH winner, please keep the faith! Remember to enter every day in every way possible!

Good luck,

  1. Was contacted today by a man Mr. DAVE Sayer said I won a car $97,000,000 but needed $500 dollars for some possessions I remembered hearing don’t pay if you win what should I do besides not give him money?

    1. Hi Zelma! That is definitely a scammer that contacted you. The real PCH doesn’t notify our major prize winners via phone, standard mail, email, or social media, and we never ask for money to claim a prize. Please report any details you have about that scam contact to us at this link: I also encourage you to check out these Safety Tips for some great info on what to watch for: Stay safe everyone!!
