Hello all,

Just one more day until P.C.H gives away the 1,000,000.00 a year prize! I've been answering every email they've sent since the beginning. I've informed the wife if they show up, open the door and start crying(makes good T.V). I will be sure to report back tomorrow If they come by my house, later.

    Dont forget the 5,000 a week for life, 7,000 a week for life, and the 10,000,000 dollar super prize. I get three emails every morning about one or all three sweepstakes games

        "I've informed the wife if they show up, open the door and start crying(makes good T.V)."

        I would recommend some wildly hysterical screaming and celebratory gunfire into the air.

          I entered as well! I can't believe all the emails I have gotten from them even though I unchecked all the boxes for solicitation. The odds are 1.3 billion to 1 but I still have a chance just like anyone else who entered the drawing.

          Most of the emails are to "validate" my entry...what a joke! You have to go through pages of advertisements just to confirm an entry but I can't complain because it's free. I read the fine print on the $1million prize, it's paid out in payments of 25k for the first 29 years with a final balloon payment of 275k the final year.

            According to their blog, there wasn't a matching "Forever" winner so they aren't awarding the $1,000,000/year SuperPrize tomorrow. It's just 2nd chance draw for a one-time million. Nothing to balk at but still.

            If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the payoff does.

            If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              No matching winner for the $1 million a year for life? well how convenient! the one time million prize also has the same 1.3 billion to 1 odd, wonder if that is going to have a no match winner as well.

                Really? I didn't know that, that sux! That is quite convenient for them.

                  I just read the blog. Wow..for the 2nd year in a row, what a croc. I don't mind not winning if there was someone else who won the prize, now I doubt they ever were going to award that prize.

                    I doubt they ever had any intentions of giving away the $1 million a year for life prize. It was more than likely a publicity stunt in order to drum up business.

                      I Agree! It is a joke. They had a story on the lady who won a million dollar prize. She opted for the lump sum and received about $250k yet she was given a job with PCH to be a spokesperson and thrust into the spotlight as a past million dollar winner.

                        So  they  said  no   one  matched     on  the   Top  Prize   ???

                         

                        PCH   ???      Surely   not 

                         

                         

                        Do  a  deep  search  on  them  ,  they  been  around  for  over  30   years  I  am   sure    (  maybe  longer )

                         

                        You  will  find  out  a   Lot   in  your  search

                         

                        Hard  for  me  to  believe  they  are  still  around , but  looks  like  they  are  the  last   man   standing  Thumbs Down

                         

                        I  wonder  who  is  watching  the  store   (  these  days  )

                          Last time I had any dealings with them was years ago when I entered via "stamps on paper" method.  They always gave me the creeps in the sense that I didn't feel everything was legit.

                            These sweepstakes remind me of the Jerry Seinfeld comedy routine:

                            JERRY:

                            I have to tell you that I did get some very exciting news recently, and I don't know if I should really tell you exactly what it is because it's really not a definite thing yet.

                            (crowd cheers him on to tell them)

                            Well, I will tell you what I know so far. According to the information that I have in the envelope that I've received, it seems that I may have already won some very valuable prizes.

                            (audience applauds)

                            Well, thank you, thank you very much, well thank you. That's very nice to hear that.

                            But, in all honesty, I have to say, I didn't even know I was in this thing. But, according to the readout, it looks like I am among the top people that they are considering.

                            (smiles and pauses)

                            You know, that's what annoys me about the sweepstakes companies, they always tease you with that, "You may have already won." I'd like once for a sweepstakes company to have some guts, come out with the truth, just tell people the truth one time. Send out envelopes, "You have definitely lost!" You turn it over, giant printing, "Not even close!" You open it up, there's this whole letter of explanation, "Even we cannot believe how badly you have done in this contest.
