I have figured out how Publishers Clearing House never awards the "mega prize" with their "special early looks." (in 7 reviews)

Pch is one big scam nobody ever wins don't expect them to come to your house. I've been playing since I was 18 and I'm 40 years old now. I haven't won anything not even a measly $5. I even worked with a woman who has been playing since the 1970. She hasn't won anything either, yet she remains hopeful. It's a false kind of hope but I don't tell her that. I just keep letting her dream and hope. I told her if I ever did win, which I doubt I will, I'd split the money with her.
I have 15,671,254 token playing these games for the last three years and I have not won any prizes I am expressing my feelings about this because I am the token board leader no one has more tokens than me its just not fair
While playing the lotto last week; a pop up about my computer came up. I'm usually careful not clicking; but click thinking it was my anti virus site. It wasn't; and I had a time removing it from my computer. Also, that same site pop up again; asking if I wanted the plus service. I've determine; it's a real SCAM!!
Scam they get paid for you to visit these sites paid per click and hopefully you buy something
Having been in retail sales for over 30 years, I've never experienced a more poorly run business. They opened their games and chances to win online, with countless crashes, and therefore frustration. Their products are garbage- I'm certain the winners are thrilled, and I'm happy to see that, but this company makes playing, winning and fairness for all- very difficult!
It's very frustrating for everyone they portray themselves unrealisticaly.
Mr Bill always plays this.. Wish I could of informed him about these reviews .he should me so many things he had ordered from them they even sent him mess like a box of white out pens and glue sticks that were tall as giraffes... theyd charge Mr. Bill like $18 for that cheap stuff, stuff you can get at your local sam's dollar not like office depot ..But you can't tell em diddly squat..Then they sent him a chopper with a container that he couldn't even chop tomatoes up with and had d nerve to ask me if I wanted it I told him I got enough junk at d house already.. Then he orders a pair of those grandpa horseshoes.. He gave those to my husband cause he said the house shoes had a L on each shoe thinking they sent him 2 left feet instead of left and right.. So he called them and they told him it means Large. read my review text me @ 2145465595.. Cause PCH is laughing at all these reviews..
I just played their online blackjack for the 500th time, just for something to do while I'm listening to the daily news or radio, and EVERY TIME I play it the "dealer" just happens to win by "1" way too often. You get 18 the dealer just happens to get 19. You get 20 the dealer just happens to get 21. I've saved-off hundreds of print-screens of this. It's rigged. You only win at most 15 or 20 "points" which can then only be used to simply "enter" another contest. The odds on this site are one-gazillion to one.
Been entering since 1971 (yes - 1971). I've responded to EVERY mailing and played untold hours online. I won $10.00 once. Figure I've earned .01 cent for every 100 hours of my time. They claim to have "So many ways to win." but have you ever really known anyone who's won other than their big AD's when they give away the super prize? If they were for REAL they'd give $1000.00 per week to 7 folks rather than $7000.00 a week to one! Don't waste your time!!!! Learn to play poker on line. At least then you'd have a chance to win something.
Be careful when going to PCH. I have had lots of problems with the site. I caught one virus on there that was even force-redirecting my to other web pages. Lately, my Malware program has been totally blocking PCH from even showing up. I logged on at the Library, and their system was always giving me warning about PCH trying to access information, etc. It is a "dirty" website.
A short update: Last Thursday when I was using the PCH search function, a virus actually tried to take over my computer and would NOT allow me to close out. I had to force a shutdown. I only visit PCH to play the games, knowing full well that it's a scam and phony, but now I am going to block all emails from them. And let me reiterate--it is a "dirty" site when it comes to adware, viruses, and spyware.
I would play this more and give a good rating however if anyone is to win why take this game I enjoy off my phone. I get to number 6 or 8 on leaderboard and bank shot is not on my phone. This is not fair. It makes me think this site is not legat. Thank you
I received a cell call this morning August 29, 2015 at 9:15 am from 876-833-4673 from Jamaica. I called the number at 9:55 am and was informed that it was Publishers Clearing House. I held on the phone until a man came on and I politely asked him to please remove my telephone number. He answered "f++k off and F++k you" and hung up.
Good luck with the PR of this company.
Confirmed when you play. The next day you get a message that if you don't search, play games ect. You loose the entry's? I've never entered anything that takes away a confirmed entry. How is it "confirmed" if they can take it away? I always thought once you enter a sweepstakes, you are entered. Period! The other thing I don't understand and I've tried to ask PCH (No response) is , they have a rule only 1 entry per day into the $5 grand a week for life sweepstakes. (Unless u download a Pch game) yet they offer and confirm a unlimited number of those everyday per person? Like the blackjack game... U can use tokens at the end of that game to (buy?) Up to 5 entry's? and that's the next to last game in the lineup. Why keep offering if they aren't valid? What do they do with all the entry's that don't count? Who decides which 1's stay and which ones go? Why don't they respond to questions? Even frequently asked questions? I've read their "frequently asked questions" none of them have any depth. They are all so non- specific. Where is the big prize winners list? Another question that isn't on the FAQ list. I tend to think that question would be asked more than any other. More transparency would be a good thing, wouldn't it?
I think if people spent more time on it and turn their opinions around yes maybe they don't win but think of all the people that Publishers Clearing House has helped. I play a lot of games and stuff and I think it would be awesome it would totally turn my life around if I won but I'm not going to be mean to the next person for winning.
I come to my local library daily to work on my graduate degree and often sit next to a wonderful hearing impaired individual. She is always playing on PHC website. I try to respect her privacy but we have communicated and she has offered the information to me. I feel so bad the hours she puts into this website. I am not exactly sure what she is doing but has communicated to me that the Prize Patrol will be at her home on 8/31/15. I just feel like this is all a scam. I actually told her I thought that and she somewhat defensively said NO! I find that PCH is a bunch of predators. What are they gaining from these people who are on fixed incomes with disabilities? I see her heart breaking with the doubt the "Prize Patrol" is going to be anywhere insight on 8/31. I give them a ZERO. It's terrible thing scamming the elderly and disabled like this. A this crap about tokens and bingo is a joke. Heck I will take you all to a bingo hall. You would actually have fun and a better chance of winning. Can anything be done to stop this?
IDK why some on here are complaining. I only get one email from PCH,per day. Occasionally 2,but usually only one. Maybe if they did'nt subscribe to every damn thing PCH tells them to,they would'nt get beseiged by emails. As far as the games&such,don't bother with those,they won't get you much even if you DO win(assuming that winning anything on PCH is even possible),go for the big ones,the money,like the 5,000.00 a week forever,1 million dollar jackpot&such. That way,if you DO win,it's something worthwhile(if one actually CAN win on PCH&that's a big assumption in itself).Leave the damn games&token stuff alone,as it won't get you much at all. Stop being such mindless,whiny little sheep&THINK,damnit,THINK...Do you want big money,or useless tokens&a few bucks,maybe a measly 100.00? Just sayin'. Have a nice night...
Or in Dante’s immortal words, “Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.” :-)
If you enter online, you will receive an INFINITE number of emails, each of which requires you to scroll to the bottom of an INFINITE number of pages, each containing an INFINITE number of ads. Better buy a lottery ticket; you will only be wasting some money, not your life.
I don’t think they could be targeting the poor and elderly, though. Victims can only jump through their hoops with the fastest connection and the very latest browser. They are targeting people who can afford those, who might make better customers for the junk they offer. However, this is something to avoid utterly; once you have invested a few hours you will invest a few hundred more hours to avoid losing your time investment, and so on ad infinitum.
Tip for consumers: AVOID!Ask Shirley about Publishers Clearing House (PCH)
I have been playing games and searching now for over a year, every day I get a different email, search now for this drawing & another for this drawing. I've also redeemed so many tokens & have won absolutely NOTHING. I understand there are millions of people playing, but come on over a million tokens & not even a lousy 10$ gift card to McDonald's not that I would want that, dnt eat there jus an example. Just how many different drawings do they actually have a year. I'm tired of searching, playing games, redeeming tokens, just a waste of time. Plus I'm disabled & just had back surgery, rather play a game from the play store on my phone. If there was a lower than 1 rating,I would give a -10
I have figured out how Publishers Clearing House never awards the "mega prize" with their "special early looks." All the numbers for the "special early looks" have to be returned by a certified date. Then all the numbers are fed into a computer. Then PCH has the computer churn out a "winning number" that does NOT match any of the returned ones, so they can honestly say "the winning number was not returned." This has happened all last year and now twice this year. Just wait--the August "special early look" won't result in anybody winning the" $5000 a week for life and then $5000 a year for the life of someone you choose," either. This is just a scam to drum up business through the life of the sweepstakes. I have already contacted the Federal trade Commission about this and I hope they put a stop to this!
When I find out that people are winning after only playing a few times or a even a few months, I am very disheartened, as I have played for well over 20 years now, and still have not won a thing. What I just found out a few days ago makes me sad as well. All of the games are rigged. The Bingo game is rigged and so are the others. I have landed on $1,000 many times, but once it lands on the money, (Lucky Diamonds) the dial quickly goes towards the tokens, proving this game is rigged. So tired of getting rewarded with tokens instead of real money. I have been playing PCH since the 70s when it was all mail-in entrys only. When is it my turn to win PCH?! I play every day and spend approximately 2-3 hrs. each day playing all of the games, but yet I never win. Bottom line is they pay people to "PRETEND" to win. I've been told they are all actors. I don't believe anybody ever wins. If PCH comes to my door, then I'll believe it, but not until then.
PCH isn't worth the time and energy we put into it you would have a better chance playing the litter and winning $20,000 then damn PCH. I have done research and noticed that the people who win we don't hear from them again or that the winners video isn't on news channels, and that most of the winners are old, single moms with too many kids, and people who are already doing good.
Hello, how are you? Well, I feel it's inspiring and beneficial. It doesn't take much to press a few keys, to MAYBE get a life changing destiny. Think positive, get positive, think negative, get negative. One never knows when their time will come....but it will. Blessings 2 all. Keep the faith. n smiles
what happens if i don't use tokens from playing? i would rather use on real options not go up against 500 to 100 or more and just loose the tokens I have worked so hard to get.
I bought a duffle bag from Walmart 10 years ago for $9.98 and the little side pouch zipper is messing up. I see PCH has a duffle bag, it was one of those buy one and get a second for free. Total cost about $20. The dimensions were the same so I ordered it. They came in the mail just in time for a trip. Packed my bags (one of them had my camera and netbook) and carried them to my vehicle. So I maybe put a couple of minutes of stress on them. Made it to my destination 6 hours later, grab the bags and sling them over my shoulders only to have the one with my camera and netbook break and hit the parking lot ground. Luckily nothing damaged due to the surrounding clothes but now I'm not able to trust the cheaply made duffle bags. I went back to using my Walmart one. I guess I should have known when I first saw them and the seams and materials were starting to unravel.
This is a sham, I have been playing this for 20 years now, and only bought something once 20 years ago. I have not won even a cheapo $5 gift card!! Even with the Powerball and the country playing the odds are still better than PCH, I have won a couple times some $20 prizes with them. Those are greater odds than this and still haven't won nothing!!
How sweet it is to have a second blessing in life .I am honered to be a big part of this new family of mine first thing I am going to take my two youngest to Walt Disney world then I am going do to do some smart and happy things thank you pch for making my dream come true.
the games break down regulery right after starting and in the middle and the end after restarting the game it still breaks down. I don't realy have much to do all day but I'm still getting tired of the same crap
it has done for the two or three years I've been trying to play. I'd love to win of coarse we all would but if the games won't play what's to look foward too?
I purchased more that I could really afford all ain't is to win so I can pay in full for my daughters house, medical bills and car. She is not well and she and her husband have been struggling for years. They Never ask for anything. I am 70 and only have enough to provide for my continued livingl
Here I am again. :) Can't help it, admit it people...who else gives away "life changing" opportunities like PCH ? Nobody. Let's count the ways. 1.) Great Deals 2.) Great and Unique Products 3.) Great Magazines. Any Magazine on any subject...Very Popular Magazines plus great deals...infact I never found anyone who beat PCH Prices. 4.) If you ever have to return something or just have a question the people there are so kind and helpful. 5.) Dave Sawyer, Todd Sloan and Danielle Lam and their awesome crew COULD possibly come to your door with a "LIFE CHANGING CHECK" to make all of your dreams come true...NOW! Not tomorrow but NOW. WOW That is what I say! Now I would say just for a moment. ..just absorb that thought...and ask yourself who else offers you all of this? My saying for PCH is "WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE" :) I rest my case. Continue to play, enter and dream. Ask, Believe and Recieve :) Good Luck Everyone. :)
I am here only to help. and get help.On Disqus lot of us make mistakes.I make my share. when you make a typing area and keep trying to fix it but it says there is another email make a new one and all you need to do is fix the one you have. Email are important for many reasons we get friends mail we send our payments on a email we play games and use our email. To lose one it can be devastating. I have lost money because of them and I don't want to lose again if at all possible.Disqus needs to change their way of letting people fix their emails.and we all need I need to watch closer myself it better I believe I am dyslexic because I transpose my letters to often. Do I get penalised because I made a mistake. how many of us make mistakes, I have ask for help so man times and left notes for them to read. I love going to Disqus is a wonderful place to go and I have loved writing there and will still go. They are a wonderful group of people. Just need to fix the problem and it is so small . Thak you everyone for allowing me to come here..
the thing is a joke nobody really wants they hire people to pretend to be winners. It's just the Telus scam if you don't play their little games every day they terminate your claim number I have gotten numerous numerous emails and it's getting ridiculous unless I play their games every day the times that I've entered are terminated all is scam all a scam this whole thing in the fake they hire people to play winner
I JUST ENJOY PLAYING THE GAMES, IF I WIN SURE
IWILL BE MORE THAN HAPPY, IT SURE WILL BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO BUY SOME VERY NEEDED THINGS . SO TO ALL GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF US
