Why Have I Not Been Credited In The RealBucksGo App?

Publishers Clearing House keeps coming up with new ways to give away money, and the RealBucksGo app has been lining the virtual pockets of PCH fans with, well, real bucks, that can be redeemed for gift cards at some of America’s most favorite restaurants, retailers, and more.

We’re so happy to see that fans like you have been enjoying this new way to win, but we’ve also heard questions like “Why have I not been credited in the RealBucks Go App?”

Today we wanted to explain some of the common most answers to this question that will hopefully be helpful to you if you find yourself in this situation.

  1. App previously installed

If the app you downloaded through RealBucksGo had been previously installed on your device – even if you’ve since deleted it – you will not receive RealBucks for downloading it again.

  1. App requirements

Certain apps have in-app requirements that must be met before you receive your RealBucks reward. These requirements can include creating a user account, reaching a certain level in a game and more.

  1. Patience please

Even if you’ve done everything right – downloaded an app, run it, and met all the requirements to earn RealBucks – it still can take up to 24 hours for your account to be credited with RealBucks.

Let’s say you’ve downloaded an app through RealBucksGo and you’re pretty sure it’s never before been installed on your device. And let’s say you’ve met all the in-app requirements and more than 24 hours have passed since downloading and opening the app, and you still haven’t received your RealBucks! Now what!!!

Remember, you’re never alone with Publishers Clearing House. Just Ask A Question and we’ll help clear up the confusion. When you do, select “RealBucksGO” as your reason for contacting us, and “General Inquiries” so we can direct your question for the speediest response. Also, please include your “share code” when filling out the information so we can quickly identify your account.

We hope this helps ease any concerns you might have about “why have I not been credited in the RealBucksGo App” so you can get right back to earning RealBucks today!

Happy ‘apping!

Real Reviews of PCH Apps from Real PCH Fans!

Whether you’re on social media or just browsing the web, it’s always fun to read what others have to say, especially on things you care about!

For example, you love opportunities to win, right? Of course you do, that’s why you’re reading the Publishers Clearing House Blog right now! You probably know that you can complete entries into our Sweepstakes and Instant Win experiences on our various websites, and you definitely should keep at it! BUT, if you want more opportunities, you can always find them by installing our PCH Mobile Apps on your mobile devices, too! It’s the best way to go for prizes AND earn tokens while you’re out and about!

But you don’t have to take our word for it. Why not hear REAL reviews of PCH apps from REAL PCH fans?

First, let’s start with some comments from Jonathan Wright, who was even nice enough to send us a picture of himself!

Real review of PCH apps


We were so inspired by Jonathan’s words that we asked him for more details about what he plays and how he feels about it. Remember, these are words from a REAL PCH Mobile App User (below he’s specifically talking about our PCHplay&win App)!

Real PCH Fan Jonathan

Here’s Jonathan, who loves to use the PCH App, Play&Win App and PCH Lotto Blast App!


“I Love PCHPlay&Win! Bank Shot on the PCHplay&win App is exhilarating! The Clock is winding down with only 45 seconds! 3 made shots in a Row equals Flame Bonus Points! I love going after my own High Score! If you like Solitaire, Tri Peaks Solitaire on the PCHplay&win App will really get your fingers moving! It’s all about combos! The more cards you chain together in 1 minute and 30 seconds the Higher your score! A very cool and unique take on Solitaire! “

As you can see, Jonathan really loves the PCHPlay&Win App! It’s that kind of enthusiasm that brings a person back for more and more winning opportunities, and maybe someday could make them an actual winner!  As you know, we have winners from our Apps all the time, and we post about them on a regular basis.

Here’s what commenter Bob said on a recent post about our PCH App Winners:

Real Review of PCH App


What a good attitude! Bob is a true believer that good things come to those who keep trying! And we were so pleased that he wished all of his fellow Mobile App players luck, that we reached out to him to see if he could share his routine with the other users out there:

“[Where do] I play? …I play/enter at PCHsearch&win, PCHfrontpage, PCHlotto, PCHgames, PCHsave&win and then recently downloaded the apps too! [Everyone should] try, PCHlottoblast, PCHplayandwin”.

Many of our Mobile App users talk about how much they love the Instant Win Prize opportunities! And we totally understand — it’s a great feeling to play your favorite game knowing you could win a cash prize by the end of it! And don’t forget, you can also earn tokens! Here’s what user LaDon C. says:

Here’s LaDon – she loves the PCH App!


Some people love certain games, others just can’t get enough of everything — they even play on two devices at once! Here’s what Sandra said:

Fan review of PCH apps


We had to know what Sandra’s favorite games were, so we thought we’d ask!

Real PCH Fan Sandra

Here’s Sandra, a big fan of our apps!


“I love playing all the PCH games really, but some of my most favorites are Bank Shot, Carnival Games, PCH Sweepstakes page (money drop and first class cash) and The PCH Play & Win app.  If I have the chance (when my 3 year old isn’t using my iPad), I will use my phone and iPad at the same time to play and enter different games at the same time…I feel sad when people respond that PCH is a scam or fake.  It’s fun just playing and it’s FREE!  Who could ask for more?  You just have to have fun with it and BELIEVE!!!!!   You never know when it just might be your lucky day!!!”

We truly have the BEST fans in the whole world. We appreciate all the kind words, especially from people like Rhonda!

Real PCH Fan Rhonda

Here’s Rhonda, another happy PCH App user!

Review of App


We asked Rhonda what were her favorite parts of the app. Here’s what she said!

“I love to play PCH Lotto Blast and the Play and Win App. I must say that all of PCH games are so much fun, it is hard to pick just one!  I have won 10 cash prizes on various PCH games, including a blog post win, a Fandango movie ticket on PCH Search and Win, and many Amazon gift cards. Absolutely amazing! So I would say play each and every game that PCH has to offer! I am “in it to win it” BIG! Thank you so much PCH!”

And of course there are those PCH Friends who love us so much, they can’t even LIVE without us! Ok, that might be an overstatement, but that’s what this active commenter says!

PCH App Review


We contacted Nettie, and she went on to say this:

“I enjoy the PCHApps a lot, but my most favorite PCHApps are the PCHLotto Blast App and the PCHGames App. The Apps allow for fast and fun play and of course more chances to win M-O-N-E-Y (Smiles) ……!”

So there you have it folks – REAL reviews of our PCH Apps from REAL fans. But now we want to hear what YOU think. So please, comment below and let us know! And if you haven’t downloaded them for yourself yet, why not do so right now?
