What If I’m Not Home When the PCH Prize Patrol Shows Up?

Imagine this: after years of entering Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes, you’re finally a WINNER. So the Prize Patrol Team gets some flowers and balloons together and loads up in a van to come find you and deliver your Big Check at your front door. They knock… and there’s no answer, because you’re not home. What’s next? Does the Prize Patrol Team turn around and go home and choose another winner?

THE ANSWER? NO WAY! YOU’RE STILL THE WINNER!

The Prize Patrol will find you, one way or another! They will track you down at work, at church, at your friend’s house, or even on vacation. They’ll even ask your neighbors where you are. OR, they’ll wait for you to come home. And we’re not just saying that — the PCH Prize Patrol has never failed to find the winner of its SuperPrize awards before.

Check out our compilation video of winners we had to track down because they weren’t at home!

So whether you’re home or not, if you’re our next WINNER, you’ll know it! And you’ll definitely get your prize. We won’t give it to anyone else!

Looking for more fun ways to collect tokens and enter PCH sweepstakes? If you take any of our 20-question quizzes at PCHquizzes, you’ll score 200 tokens for each correct answer — that’s a whopping 4,000 tokens per quiz for answering 100% correctly! You can also peruse a short, entertaining slideshow at PCHfrontpage and, if you click through to another slideshow, you’ll bank 1,000 tokens. Pretty easy, right? You’re welcome!

  1. I keep receiving scam calls from someone claiming to be from PCH. The number called from today is $$$ $$$-$$$$.

    1. Hi Veda! Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. 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: https://bit.ly/FraudProtection2. Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim.

  2. I think you don’t have to be at home. They pick one person, like just being picked as winner, so don’t have worry about being at home.

  3. Mr,. Collins,
    I am so sorry to have to send you this message but I got a letter or email from pch. I have been with pch for 4 years now. My name is Margarita and I have been getting good communication thru the internet and the people at pch . October 26 2022 I got an email saying that they needed to know how I wanted to have my name put on the checks because I was winning 3 ck and 14 000 a month and so on on the 31. I got so excited and was waiting and then everything stopped, emails from pch . I etc, I feel really bad that this happened maybe you have an explanation for this. On top of this I have been getting a lot of scammer calling me saying that I won the publishers clearing house sweepsstakes getting me all confused. I am sure there is a good explanation or this cutting me off and not letting me know anthing of what happened with the winnings or who won the contest.

    Thank you
    Margarita Ruiz Rangel

  4. I just went back almost one year. I’ve kept all of your envelopes, and all inserts. I never received the one that shows on your site, the activation codes. I guess I am out of the game.

  5. My name is Virginia J. I got a phone call from a man saying his name is Mr. Goldberg from PCH that I won last year’s PCH and a car. You don’t know how these people hurt me bad.
