Publishers Clearing House Winners 2011

It may be a little premature to “look back” at Publishers Clearing House Winners of 2011, but who couldn’t use a dreamy pick-me-up to remind you PCHers that miracles do happen and that PCH dreams come true?!

When I heard that the latest PCH Winner of 2011, Veronica Trombino, was a nurse, it was especially exciting that someone who changes lives every day won the PCH big sweepstakes prize of $10,000.00. I think, nurses and doctors and other health professionals can be considered part of their own special “Prize Patrol” who make dreams come true by performing medical miracles including healing ailments or replacing broken limbs. I also have special family members studying to become part of this world, so I know how hard they study and work for these positions.

Another 2011 PCH winner is Donna Guziejka of Henrico, Virginia. While receiving her $10,000 cash prize, Donna pointed out that her son said she was “wasting stamps” by sending in her PCH sweepstakes entries. And even though Publishers Clearing House has developed tons of ways for people to win online, this just proves that winning Big Sweepstakes Prizes through the mail is just as effective, fun, and possible! At the end of her presentation, one of Donna’s co-workers said “An angel was looking out for you.” It seems the angel’s connection was made possible by Donna entering a Publishers Clearing House Big prize sweepstakes herself!

2011 certainly got off to a good start for these PCH sweepstakes winners, and the good news is there are still plenty of sweepstakes prizes to be awarded – so keep on entering! Aching to see the real-life events that happen? Visit and enjoy!

  1. Hi there, I just got a email stating I won a million dollars, it was signe by agen Margaret Crossen, I think that was the name and email cordinator, a Mr. Dave Sayer, I believe. It asked me to send my name, addy, nationality, age and country I lived in, I dont think this is legit???

    1. Hi Yvonne,

      That definitely sounds like a scam. At Publishers Clearing House we do not notify our winners by email, regular postal mail or by telephone. All prize winners of $500.00 or more would be notified by registered mail and all winners of $10,000 or more would be notified in person by our famous Prize Patrol.

      If you still have the email you received, please do not respond to it, as it is not legitimate. However, please feel free to forward it to our scam reporting mailbox at

      Thanks, and stay safe!

    1. I, Pam, have never tried to play pch either. I have always needed, even though I went to school and earned RN. My family is big and never enough just like everyone. The reason is because someone is gonna win, right!, so why not us. Good luck to you and yours and good luck to me. Pam

  2. Has anyone ever matched the million dollar winning number, I have been putting in at least 3-5 entries each day for 5 years, and pray each night. I’m not rich and I’m unable to work anymore due to medical reasons, so all my little savings are gone. I’m happy for anyone that wins but I wish it would just be me once.So I could help myself and others

    1. Hi Pam,

      Our most recent winners can be found on the top of our web site on the scrolling bar and under the “Winners Circle” link. You may also view some of our winning moments at:

      All draws are awarded on the date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts that comes with each entry as per our official rules. In the event of an “Advanced Look”, a SuperPrize number is drawn and, if the winning entry has been returned, the prize is awarded. If the winning number was not returned, the prize rolls over to the next draw date. If the prize is not awarded on any of the “Advanced Look” draw dates, the prize will be awarded on the end date specified in the Sweepstakes Facts.

      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 and every entry has the same chance of winning, so keep trying!.

      Please be assured, if you are one of our lucky winners you will definitely be notified. If you are picked as a winner of a prize of $10,000 or more, you will be notified in person by the Prize Patrol. Prizes of under $10,000 are notified by certified mail or by courier. These awards are done as soon as all winning entries and prizes are matched.
      And remember, at Publishers Clearing House no purchase is ever necessary to enter or win!

      Best of luck in the sweepstakes!

      1. I rember when you received alist of numbers and was told to keep them so you would know if you were a winner. Today you don’t get anything in the mail or in your email that says here are your numbers, so how do you know this is’nt another scam to get you to spend money.

      2. Hello Elizabeth,

        The Publishers Clearing House name and company logo appear on all PCH promotions and communications. At PCH, it is NEVER necessary to purchase or pay a fee to enter, win, or claim a prize in our famous sweepstakes.

      3. PCH customer service,
        I received a PCH letter in the mail this week with 6 $400 vouchers that claimed they were my consolation prize for the Nov. 30 drawing. I flipped the vouchers over to see that each is pre-printed with a product to apply the voucher towards payment but has a remaining balance due that is not covered by the $400 credit. The logo looks legit but per your comments above PCH would not ask for money to claim a prize. Is this letter actually from PCH? I’m not sure if this letter falls into the “offers” category or “prize” category. And if it is not legit, I wanted to let others know about this just incase it is a scam.
        Thanks, Neshia

      4. Hi Neshia,

        Someone from PCH will be reaching out to you shortly to get more information from you about the offer you’ve received.

      6. I received a phone call from someone who said he was a PCH rep and that I had won $1.5 million. I told hime PCH did not notify winners by phone, but he insisted he was a PCH rep. I asked for his phone number and he gave me 209-565-6949. I didn’t call him back, but suggest that someone from your office call the number to prevent future such PCH scam scalls from occurring.

      7. Hi Milton,

        Thank you for bringing this to our attention. You have been the victim of a scam. The offer you’re describing did not come from Publishers Clearing House.

  3. I just want to say congrats to all who have won pch sweepstakes. I sincerley hope that one day all of my daily entries will pay off so when my husband comes home off the submarine I can tell him we no longer have to worry that we cannot take care of the kids on his outrageoulsy low military pay. I know that so many others have a bigger struggle than me to take care of their families so this is my promise to them, ” If I win one of the superprizes I swear to all military wives and husbands, I will donate part of my winnings to you so you will not have to worry as much as I do”. God bless everyone who has won and will win in the future, may you help others less fourtunate so they may have a little bit more hope for the future!!!!!

  4. Hi, PCH, I have been faithfully enetering everyday, and I am still waiting for a chance ti win big money. I really need help.

    1. Hey Mark,

      We haven’t been updated on the result of the draw, but once we have, the results will be posted on and this blog. Keep your eyes open and best of luck!!

  5. I want to win a real high end sweepstakes to try and purchase a home of my own someday but I feel so guilty praying for that dream to come true. There are so many more worthy people than I out there and when I hear about a nurse winning or a school principal I feel glad that people like that are being rewarded in some cosmic fashion.

    1. A continued saga…I left a remark, a dream, a wish or hope last March and somehow part of it turned up on this Blog’s short summary for all to see. No one should ever feel guilty as long as they keep in mind that you want it to be OK with the path of life you are on. I am growing and I really do want a house of my own, I just don’t want to take it from someone else who was meant to have it. I guess this is more of a bookmark for myself. Thanks
