Did You Receive a PCH Postcard With An Activation Code?

If you received a PCH postcard with a website URL and an activation code, READ ON!

Who doesn’t love checking their mail? You never know what you’ll find! Sometimes there’s a flood of mail coming to your house, sometimes it’s just a trickle. Either way, it’s easy to miss a postcard that may have slipped through the cracks or gotten mixed in with a magazine or a circular. It may be small but it could be delivering some very important news!

Even though our postcard doesn’t come from an exotic locale and say “wish you were here”, it does send GOOD NEWS your way — and you don’t want to miss out! So if you received a PCH postcard in the mail with an activation code, be sure to follow the simple step-by-step instructions below for a chance to win an exciting cash prize from our Fast 50 Sweepstakes!
