Amy C. from Millington, MI Proves Why You Should Always Be In It To Win It!

Howie and Dave with the Prize Patrol ran into a bit of traffic before pulling up to Amy Collins’ driveway in Millington, Michigan. When they finally arrived, Dave prepared the balloons and the champagne while Howie manned the Big Check about to be delivered into Amy’s hands. The air simmered with excitement!

Amy answered the door with a hand over her heart. “Do you know what’s going on?” Dave asked her.

She could only laugh. “I have no idea… I mean, I see [who you are] but I still don’t believe it!”

Howie then handed her the Big Check — for $25,000! Can you imagine her astonishment? She looked about to cry and could only repeat “thank you” for a minute. When asked if she could use the money, she said, “Oh heavens yes!” It so happens Amy is looking for a job and needs a new car, and has two adult children she’d like to help out, so the PCH Prize Patrol showed up at just the right time!

In moments her mom, brother and even her dog came to join in the excitement at the door. Amy went on to explain that she plays her favorite games for a certain amount of time EVERY day. What came to her mind when she opened the door? “Shock!” she said. “I saw the shirt labels and the flowers but I was like, no… it’s not true!” Proving, however, that being In It To Win It really is a legit slogan that can come true, Amy now has $25,000 to help her and her family.

  1. I just got a call that said they were from Publishers Clearing House, and that I won $2,500,000.00 and a Mercedes Benz. They said to call $$$-$$$-$$$$ to claim my prizes. I assume this is a scam, but thought I would inquire and to let you know the scammers are already at it.

    1. Hi Toni, we’re sorry to hear the scammers have contacted you. Please report all contacts from scammers to PCH via this link: 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.

  2. Why don’t the $5,000 a week prize work? Why don’t the surveys work? Why don’t most of the Sweeps work?

    I’m using both Chrome and MS Edge DEV. None of them are working.
