#WinnerWednesday: This PCH Winner Won A Big Check For $42,209!

There was no answer at our #PCHwinner’s door in Idaho, but friendly neighbor Dave walked over and helped us bring our winner home! Ford Bronco Sport winner Gary Lindstrom had a huge smile on his face the second he saw Howie and a camera crew walking towards him. “No way!” he exclaimed.

Gary loves the Ford Bronco truck but went with the cash value of $42,209.00, which he will use to take his entire family to a Disney theme park. He will put the remainder towards savings and retirement.

Gary’s wife Carolyn got on a video call and was screaming — and even admitted she had teased him for entering! They can’t wait to celebrate tonight with a nice dinner out on the town. Gary’s advice to others: “Hey, you know what they say… you can’t win if you don’t enter! Take a moment out of your day. That’s all it could take — that’s what I do. You’ve got nothin’ to lose!” Congrats Gary!

  2. why is the give-away number never given when someone wins? How do we know which numbers have been drawn? It seems we keep playing the same numbers over and over again without regard to which numbers have already been drawn.

    1. Hi Cecil! Each entry for a particular giveaway is give its own unique number when it is received. Throughout the life of a giveaway, you may submit many sweepstakes entries, and each one of them will have a new, unique prize number. I hope this clears things up!
