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!

    1. Hi Lynda! That is not the real PCH texting you; it’s a scammer that’s only pretending to be from PCH. Please do not call that number, do not give the scammer any personal info including bank account information, and definitely do not send them any money if they ask. Please report that scam contact to us via the following link: I encourage you to read these Safety Tips too: Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

  2. Hi, I hope to meet the real PCH, the lord knows there are so many imposters scammers online pretending. I know you know what I mean, those out there you know who you are, the jig is up, no one’s falling victim anymore, everyone is hip to that same old game and if they don’t know they should know by now, stay safe love and peace to you all. Good luck.

  3. I followed the instructions with my code which is the same one Sheila has but the system will not let me enter. It does not like my email address. Oh well. Unlike her I do not need the money so I would be happy if she won.
