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!

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!
