I never won anything in my life until…

Hey, Publishers Clearing House fans! I’ve been an employee at Publishers Clearing House for many years now, and working here has taught me something very important: real people REALLY win! Yes, people DO win contests!

I know this because I get to interview our big SuperPrize winners,  but also because many of you have told us about your PCH wins in the comment sections of our blogs!

Have you ever won something before? I had never won anything in my life, until one day…

I can still remember it like it was yesterday. I was ten years old, and was out with my mom running errands. It was a hot summer day, and I begged her to let me buy a soda at the grocery store. Usually this was a big “no-no,” but something that day made her say “yes”. I grabbed my soda, sat in the back of our minivan and untwisted the cap. I quenched my thirst and then glanced down at the cap in my hand…and I couldn’t believe what I saw! I had won $50! Well, not $50 exactly, but a $50 voucher for a ski-lift ticket! Now, I didn’t know how to ski (and I don’t think I lived near a mountain!), but just winning something was a huge rush…despite not even being able to USE my prize! I didn’t even know people actually could win contests!

Having your own winning moment just feels good, right? Whether it’s playing a game with some friends or getting a small prize from a local charity raffle, it’s great to end up on the winning side of things!

Winning can also just mean reaching a goal! Whether that’s achieving a financial milestone or completing a project, crossing a personal finish line can give you the same feeling!

What was your first winning moment? We want to hear about it the comments below! Tell us your winning stories, if not from PCH then from somewhere else!

  1. I’ve entered thousands of comps and bought lottery tickets for over thirty years and have won pittance these scams should be took down they only prey on the poor then when someone does win there usually middle or upper class who probably don’t need it a harsh but true fact

  2. I too have never won anything. Not 5 dollars. I play games, lottos, and mail my emvelopes to no avail.
    Yet, i believe in persistence and having fun. So, i continue with a lantern. This Aig 30 I have a problem. I must be in Switzerland. I saved my disabled pay to take wife there. She has cancer and her family is there. It was the cheepest flight we could book. Bit a bad time for my PCH entry. I cone back Sept 6. But I can still hope out a miracle hih? God bless you all for a hope……

  3. I have been doing this for years since it started and never won a thing even though they say you are in the running. I have lived in 4 houses in the past 35 years and in different areas of country and they keep saying you are in a winners area. Which I never found out that anyone in the areas I have lived ever won anything.. I spend 3-5 hours A DAY on here because of slow internet and does no good. If it was as good as it says the percentages says I would have a major chance. After this year I will stop and be putting my info and everything I know about this on a Blog I found that goes International. I can give hours on info to the blog from everything I saved making all this disheartening

  4. Not me for years I’ve been trying making my life easier never going to happen and doing contests to win I’m just tired of playing just once in my lifetime I’d love to win

  5. I’m STILL waiting to win something! I’m starting to think that all the so called winner’s are just pictures of Pch employees posing as winner’s! NOBODY I know has ever heard of anybody who actually won anything! I can’t even win with the tokens I bid on other prizes! You keep sending emails saying that someone in my area with my initias is definitely going to be a winner WELL? Care to take a guess on how many people in my area with DZ for initials? This is one of the reasons I am starting to believe that it is all just a scam to get people to look at the merchandise and hopefully buy something! I’d be happy with a 10.00 win BUT I am not going to hold my breath
