#WinnerWednesday: YES, Real People Win PCH Prizes!

Greetings, fans and friends!

It’s a question I get asked ALL the time: Do real people win PCH Prizes?  Are those PCH winners in the TV commercials actors? Is Publishers Clearing House for real?

Well, I hope all of you know the answer by now: Of course real people win PCH prizes! No, those people jumping for joy in the TV commercials are not actors – they really won! And, absolutely – PCH is as real as real gets!

If you’ve been reading my #WinnerWednesday blogs, as well as the #WinnerWednesday posts on the PCH Fan Page on Facebook, you’ve read the stories … seen the photos … and most of all, shared the happiness of lucky people who have won PCH prizes – everything from $10 gift cards to $1,000 or even $5,000 in cash!

So let’s share more happiness, and meet this week’s (very real!) #WinnerWednesday PCH winners!


Does the above envelope look real to you? It sure is real, and Jonathan P. received it in the mail! Jonathan won $10 by searching on PCHSearch&Win!

“Search and Win is one of the ways I enter every day,” says Jonathan. “I have been entering off and on for 6 years but last October (2015) I made it my goal to enter at least once every day. I figure if I enter as much as I can then I have as good a chance to win as anyone else. And if I don’t enter than I am certain to lose.”

Jonathan goes on to say, “I kept the envelope my prize was sent in to continue to give me hope and proof that PCH is real. And who knows, I may someday get to meet the Prize Patrol in person and get my hands on the ‘Big Check.’”

Wow! What an inspiring story! Need some more inspiration? Here are 2 lucky winners you can congratulate on the PCH Fan Page on Facebook.


Tressie S. from Muskegon, Michigan won $650 in a PCH giveaway. Here she is celebrating fall … and being a PCH winner! Congratulations, Tressie!


Patricia H. won a PCH prize, too – $1,000 to be exact! In fact 1,470 PCH fans “liked” her #WinnerWednesday post on Facebook! They congratulated Patricia, and agreed that being a PCH prize winner would be a dream come true! 

So, now that you’ve read about some real people who’ve won real PCH prizes, are you motivated more than ever to enter to win? 

And … if you’ve already won a PCH prize – of any amount – could you please do me a big favor? Comment below and let all our blog readers know! Or, tweet us using the hashtag #WinnerWednesday. Who knows? YOU might be starring in a future #WinnerWednesday blog!

  1. I would be SOOOOOO EXCITED if PRIZE PATROL KNOCKS AT MY DOOR.To be honest I really don’t know what type of reaction I would have.just the EXCITEMENT of meeting the PRIZE PATROL WOULD BE AMAZING.I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL WINNERS OUT THERE AND I AM PRAYING FOR AUGUST 31st big win.Good LUCK to all and never give up.

  2. Glad to see real winners. In a way it makes me sad, though. Somwone already won in Muskegon, Mi. I live here which probably dramatically reduces my chances since someone from here has already won before. 😔. Would be a big help to start up our children’s college funds.

  3. It is winter in Oregon my name is Shylo Kinchela and I hope to be the winner of number 6900. I’ve stayed strong for several years and the last couple months I have not put down my phone i’m determined I am a winner so I cross my fingers and I pray every day that it is me to become the next PCH sweepstakes winner
