Winning Sweepstakes Prize Numbers Not Found

In a recent sweepstakes prize drawing for 18 sweepstakes winners, only 7 winning numbers were claimed and 11 sweepstakes prizes went unclaimed!

I reviewed the prize drawing report myself. Seven of these sweepstakes winners were smart enough to send back their entries and ended up receiving the good news that they had each won a cash sweepstakes prize. But, incredibly, more than half of the people who had received a winning bulletin never bothered to enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes and never found out that they, too, could have been one of the sweepstakes winners.

What did we do about these “unclaimed prizes”? A second chance random drawing was held to select 11 alternate sweepstakes winners from among all the people who were smart enough to send in their PCH contest entry by the deadline. Boy, were each of those entrants happy to hear they had won a cash sweepstakes prize!

That’s why we often encourage you to enter the PCH Sweepstakes each and every time you hear from us because you never know which one might be a winner … and you don’t want to be one of those “unclaimed prize” folks, especially with $5000 A Week for Life at stake!

Sincerely,

Deborah Holland

Executive Vice President

PCH Publishers Clearing House

    Hey,I just keep re-entering my name. You know the old saying, “If you don’t play, you won’t win” so keep trying with thousands of others. I figure it keeps me out of mischief and this is the first year I have been consistent with re-entering whenever they ask.

since people fail to enter looks like i might have a great chance at winning the superprize then, or at least an excellent chance of scoring a second chance draw.

    Tom Williams said...

    I have entered so many times that you would think that i would have the winning number for the grand prize. Ha There is only one number for that prize and I believe that should the person who has that number doesn’t enter then no one wins. But PCH has to show someone winning that prize so they just pull the number out of the hat. If you are lucky then you might have a chance. I am not lucky so I get what the little boy shot at. Even with the smaller prizes nothing at this household.

every time I try to register for a drawing, I have to go through many advertisements & then I can’t get my entry in because somewhere along the way, one of the ads won’t have skip on it & I have to x off. Do you know why this is happening? I really don’t have the time to go through these same ads every day.

        Hi Ronda,

        When entering online, you will not receive a number. Once your entry is transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it will be assigned a SuperPrize Number. Your name and number is kept on file at headquarters until Giveaway end. We are sorry but Customer Service does not have access to that file. Hope this helps!

        Hi Jaqueline,

        Online entries received at PCH Headquarters are assigned a specific Super Prize number. All online entries and Super Prize numbers are kept on file at PCH Headquarters – on a secured site – until Giveaway end, at which point our automated computer systems determine if the winning number was returned. For security purposes and to prevent the possibility of fraudulent online claims, Publishers Clearing House does not in the ordinary course divulge the information you have requested. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Bad enough when I got a mailing from PCH and it said “You have been a loyal customer for 20 yrs.”-(actually it has been more)But to see it in print was like WOW! Am I wasting my time or what?? And then this blog you wrote-seems your computer at PCH doesn’t give the RIGHT People the RIGHT Numbers..or it is picking from the wrong list. Maybe it is time to retire the computer that is picking the numbers?
I wish I could laugh, but my whole upper mouth is numb from going to the dentist this a.m. and to save time I had them do everything they needed to do in one sitting! Oh well, such is life..

Deborah Holland said...

Hey Cindy, Hope you’re feeling better after all the dental work. Winners are selected at random. When you send in an entry, you get a chance with your SuperPrize Number and a chance in the second chance drawing (if one is needed). Many people throw out winning numbers without entering, so, even if you don’t receive a Bulletin with a winning number you could still possibly win in a second chance drawing. In any event, we hope you always have fun playing the sweepstakes and participating in our offers!
Deborah @ PCH

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
Deborah Holland said...

Good for you, Jeff! The only way to get a chance to win is to enter! People who throw out a SuperPrize Number that turns out to be the winning number will forfeit all claims to that prize money and an alternate winner will be chosen at random. With every entry you send in, you get a chance with your SuperPrize Number and a chance in the 2nd chance random drawing! Good luck!

    PCH Customer Service said...

    Hi Robert,

    Just use PCH Search & Win the same way you’d use a regular search engine, like Google or Yahoo. Looking for a recipe? Type “Recipes” in the search box. Want to know what to do with that pound of ground beef in the freezer? Type “Recipes with Ground Beef” in the search box. Want to know who starred in a movie you recently saw? Type the name of the movie, and voila! The Internet is the place to find whatever you’re looking for, and PCH Search & Win can help.

    If your PCH Search & Win search is a lucky winner, you’ll see a page that looks like this instead of your search results:

    http://static.blingo.com/pch/images/screenshots/winningScreen1.gif

    We don’t use pop-up windows, so you don’t need to change any settings on your computer.

    If you have received this page, you may enter your claim code to claim your prize or check the status of a previously claimed prize on this page: http://search.pch.com/claim. Just tell us where to send your prize, whether it’s a movie ticket or a new car! It’s that simple. Best of luck!

    Hi Robert,

    Please be aware that the number 1400 is a draw number, not a specific number assigned to you. Everyone who enters for the $10,000,000.00 draw is entering into draw number 1400. Once your entry was transmitted to PCH Headquarters, it is assigned a SuperPrize Number. It is this number that is used to draw the winner. We are sorry but Customer Service does not have access to that file.

Dear PCH,

I have entered over 20 years, bought from mail orders, and from web, but I do not happened at all. When I won the scratched cash entry from mail with your orders, I scratched and I won, but I did not received any money from you. I do not know what’s going on for these entries and I totally confused about how can I correct entry to PCH.

In this blog, I can see that many people need money. So why don’t you give us the money. You can divided winning money. When I lost my husband around 10 years ago, I lost job, I tried to entered your winning number and bought from you many things, because I wanted to win for some money. But I did not received any money from you. I could not buy enough food to my children, but I kept entry and bought your items. Your policy said winning is not necessary to buy from you, but some entry never access to me if I am not buy from you. Until then, I bought many your items, but I did not have any happened.

I think blog people here are almost similar situations, and we all need money, that why we bought items from you to win. If you give to specific one person for 30 million, you can divided to 10 people and can get 3 million for each, if 20 people in the blog here, we can get 1,500,000 for each. If 30 people in the blog here, we can get 10,000,000.

I think divided winning money are more fair deal all of us.

    Hi Sachiko,

    The prizes listed on that scratch card are the prize you would win should your entry be chosen as the winner. Matching three symbols for a prize amount does not guarantee your winning, it only shows that amount you would win if your entry is chosen to be the winner of that sweepstakes giveaway.

    To determine which draws you are entering, when their end dates are and what your odds of winning are, please review the “Sweepstakes Facts” pamphlet that came with your entry. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

    Please keep in mind that 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.

    While we have promoted our famous sweepstakes for over 40 years as a way to draw attention to our unbeatable magazine deals and value-based merchandise offerings no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win. You may be interested to know that majority of our major prize winners have not ordered with their winning entry!

    Best of luck in the sweepstakes!

Sometimes I really feel like just not entering because each email is always the same tire old story “You could be our next big winner!” It is like waving a bone in front of a hungry dog knowing that you will never drop it in front of him. Someone is doing it just for kicks! Then I think to myself, what if this is the time? So, here I am again sending in an entry. So tired… Oh well, what the heck! Here goes!

I understand from reading that if you have not won a previous smaller money prize that you will not win the big prize..is that correct And that they send something out by mail or UPS with $500…or so and out of that pot comes the winner..

[REPLY TO THIS POST]
    Victoria At PCH said...

    Hi Glenda,

    All entries for the August 31st SuperPrize award were included in the matching number winner selection processing for Giveaway No. 1400. They did not have to be on the 210 Short List first. The Giveaway No. 1400 processing was completed prior to the drawing for the 210 Short List winners from Giveaway No. 1907.

    Best Wishes,

I never check the site to see if I have won one of the smaller prizes. This is due to the understanding that I will be notified if I win one of the smaller prizes, via email, is this correct? And of course if I win the big one, I will have TV cameras and a PCH van pull up my driveway.

    Hello Tiffany,

    There is no purchase necessary to enter or to win a PCH prize. If someone asks you to send money and claims that they won, do not send any money. If you suspect that they are falsely using the Publishers Clearing House name, you may report it to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report any suspicious incidents to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.

melissa said...

first of all, ive been entering every day and was sent an email about claiming my superprize number, well it wouldnt process for me. this has never happened before, and if i was to be the winner of the latest drawing would it really be my fault that i couldnt continue my entry because the email was faulty that was sent to me? i tried everything until it hit midnight. “looking for some kindof customer support but it asks for an account number which is impossible to find. I worked all day and was up till 3 am agrivated with this. to think that i spent months loyaly responding to my emails from pch and might have missed out on the superprize for a glitch in the system. I called today and the girl sayed it didnt matter if i responded or not… but i dont know from what the note above says i think it does matter allot! by the way how are we supposed to find our account number or claim number? thankyou ..melissa menendez

Dear Pch, I think I was scammed. They called me and said I won 750,000.00. I was sceptic at first but then he said I truly won this prize.All I had to do was send $200.00 for taxes and I had to put it on a Reloadable Money Pak card.This gentleman called me for the next 3 days and said I have won this money and I said i think I am being scammed and he said That I Truly Won this money but he wanted $400.00 more for taxes and being shipped Fedex. I now know that I truly was scammed and that was the last of my money because I live paycheck to paycheck.

    Hi Sheila,

    I’m so sorry but yes, this was a scam! Publishers Clearing House does not notify winners by phone. Also, there is never a catch with entering or winning any PCH Sweepstakes. PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.

Linda said...

Hi,
Well, I have never won anything big like this. It would be so nice to have extra money to buy my grandaughters some nice gifts and take them shopping and just get them anything they need or want. Now that my husband is retired I would love to just take a nice trip out west with him and have extra money to buy some things we need for our home. This would sure come in handy. I would also like to help a few people out that need it too. Always nice to share when you have plenty of money like that, when God has been so good to us already, I am not complaining at all! We are so blessed. But IF I win, I will share. This would sure be nice. I am now retired, and would like to travel and see the USA. Our beautiful country. Good luck to whovever wins. I hope they share it and enjoy and use it wisely. Godbless.

    Hi Mary,

    PCH Sweepstakes winners are chosen at random, and each entry has the same chance of winning. You never know who will become the next BIG winner, so don’t lose hope! The only way you can win is if you play. That’s all you have to do!

    You don’t need to look for the matching number. Any entry that you submit will automatically be assigned an entry number and the computers will look for the matching winning number at the time of a prize draw.

    To use PCHSearch&Win, you first go to http://search.pch.com/ and create an account.  You must be logged in for the opportunity to win prizes.  Then, just use PCHSearch&Win like you’d use any other search engine.  If you win, you will be notified immediately by seeing a winner’s screen rather than your search results.  Good luck, and have fun searching!

Art Sanchez said...

How exactly does the process of picking the Super Prize ($5,000 a week for life) work? From what I understand when we enter online we are assigned a Super Prize number along with our personal information that goes back to PCH Headquarters. Then when it’s time to select a winner, is it a random number that is drawn? Like maybe a number that no one was ever assigned? Or is a number for sure drawn that an entrant was assigned? And if our number is selected, how do we go about returning that number to verify we are the winner? How are we notified our number is selected and we need to return it? Mail? By phone? Email? Much appreciated.
