Happy Saturday blog readers! By now you may have noticed that over the past few weeks we’ve devoted Saturday to answering some of the burning questions we get from our fans all the time on social media.

It’s a segment we call “Danielle’s Desk”, and this week you’ll find out the answer to a question on most people’s minds.

Question: Where Does PCH Get The Money To Give Away?

Click on this video to find out!

I’m sure lots of you wonder just how in the world PCH can afford to give away so much prize money in the famous PCH Sweepstakes. The answer is simple. Just like Danielle said, our prizes are funded primarily by company revenues derived from the sale of our wide assortment of merchandise and magazine offers. That’s right. The revenue we generate from sales of PCH merchandise and magazines is the main source of money we use to give away our fabulous prizes and make dreams come true for deserving people across the country. And the grand total of prizes awarded to date is up to $494 Million! How amazing is that? Of course., you never have to order a thing to enter the PCH Sweepstakes. It’s always FREE to get in to win each and every one of our incredible prizes. Like Danielle said, ordering does not increase your chances of winning. Other sources of revenue for the company come from advertising on PCH’s many online properties. I’m sure many of you are familiar with some of these sites, whether to play fun games at PCHgames, try your luck at PCHlotto, search the internet on PCHSearch&Win, and so much more!

Real People Really Do Win!

Our list of lucky winners grows longer and longer by the day. It’s such a thrill to award life-changing prizes to real people that we surprise with a knock on their door and a BIG check! Those winning moments captured on film are truly amazing and so heartwarming to watch. Check some of them out and you’ll see for yourself that it’s real people who really do win!

But, you’ve got to be in it to win the PCH Sweepstakes, so be sure to get those entries in across our different properties online, and through the mail!

Thanks for tuning in to our latest installment of “Danielle’s Desk”. It’s our pleasure to keep our blog readers in the know with the answers to questions we get all the time on social media and in person!

  1. I know the odds of winning are very high. I just wanna say thank you for your foundation. If I were to win a mega prize, I would not quit work. But rather invest in my business. Which would then invest back into local community and thus help the world some more in a positive direction. I got so caught up in online sweeps as I became desperate for financial help. But the aggravation of hundreds then thousands of emails of how I maybe won were too depressing and overwhelming. I decided to only entrust PCH with my luck as they only send emails about ways to increase odds. I’m still struggling with support for family and keeping rent. But I know I must dig myself out. But a person can dream. And a closed mouth won’t get fed.
    Thank you all for what you do!
