A Check Payable to Publishers Clearing House

I just made out a check payable to Publishers Clearing House. It struck me as kind of funny because most people would expect Publishers Clearing House to be the one sending a check. But, you see, I just ordered some magazines and wrote the check to pay for them.

As a PCH employee, I’m not eligible to enter and win the PCH contests and sweepstakes. But, employees can and do order magazines and merchandise from PCH! We really appreciate the variety of magazine titles and huge selection of value priced merchandise that our company sells. Plus, the convenience of home delivery is excellent for someone like me who is working too hard to go out and shop at stores.

Got a Snuggy? So does my daughter. Her “cool” mom got a leopard print one from PCH for her. Apparently, it’s the latest craze on college campuses.

Need a pair of shredding scissors? So did my mom. Guess who ordered a pair from PCH and put it in Mom’s Christmas stocking? She’s still talking about how they really come in handy.

Our product buyers do a terrific job of sourcing popular items as well as unusual and hard-to-find products – all at fabulously low prices! I’m looking forward to attending the next quarterly Product Expo meeting when our PCH Buyers will present the new items available for next season. It gives me an advance look at what will be offered in our mailings and online promotions. I know our customers will be in for a treat when they see the high quality items offered at bargain prices and … I just might start planning my holiday gift giving at the same time!

Have you ever tried any of the merchandise or magazines sold by Publishers Clearing House? Let us know what your favorite items are!

  1. I spent two years entering every single time with a order….do you know who much money I spent…well a lot. I was making my payments and ordering each and every envolope that showed up. I know I sent checks for $350 at a time to pay my bill on time. I got laid off and couldn’t make a full payment and PCH treated me like dog droppings I am now paid in full and will NEVER order again because they sent a letter to me in the mail saying that they would not let me enter into there drawing until I payed my bill off. Well, it’s paid off and I will NEVER order from you again. I’m hoping I win the $5000 for life so I can start a reserve fund for people that can’t pay there bill to PCH on time always. It will cover them until they can pay it back and not be hassled. That’s what I would do with my first check from the drawings. If you can’t give people credit, you shouldn’t be in the business!

  2. My name is brooke Blair I am 21 and have a three year old boy. My mother past a way a few months before I became pregmet. Iv been struggling my sons hole life with bring sauces full. I havnt seen the light st the end of the tunnel yet. If I win I will finly be the mother I’ve always wanted to be.

  3. I am very dissatisfied with the knives I brought from PCH washed them in the dishwasher and they came out with rust on them, I was given a so called free gift of two pillows and they were flat within two weeks of using them. Where in the world do you get your products from….signed a very, very unhappy shopper, it won’t happen again trust me!

    1. Hi Evelyn,

      Publishers Clearing House prides itself on running a fair and honest sweepstakes for over 40 years in which we have awarded in excess of $300 million in prizes across the United States and Canada. We are registered with the Secretary of State in New York and Florida. Our mailings are opportunities for a chance to win, and provide clear information that the recipient has not yet won any prize, must enter by the deadline, and must be chosen to win. In order to win an entry must be selected by random drawing or match the winning number selected. Please remember that while we receive entries from all across the land only one individual can actually win each giveaway. All PCH prizes of $500 or greater are awarded by either certified mail, or in person by our famous Prize Patrol. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched.

      Many of our winners are just like you. In fact, the majority of our winners of $1 million or more have done so as a result of a non-order entry. We really mean it when we say that there is no purchase necessary. While our sweepstakes are designed to create interest in our magazine and merchandise offers, it clearly states in all of our mailings that there is no purchase necessary to enter or win any of our sweepstakes.

      Each entry received has an equal chance of winning and we never know who our next winner may be. Our winners are as varied as the faces you see in our famous television commercials coming from all walks of life, ages, ethnic backgrounds and regions. We have had winners who live in big cities, small towns, trailer parks, high rise apartments and even the Alaskan tundra.
