I'll never win it; after a billing mix up and PCH making me jump through hoops of fire only to prove it was their fault I told them where to stick it.

I was sitting giving a speech one time in the 80s and the guy sitting next to me was the Mayor of Denton, TX. He had won the grand prize and I asked him if he ever bought any of the magazines. He said he didn't. He just sent in his entry and won.

It's worth it to them, and their advertisers.

I've been entering Publishing Clearing House close to 30 years and my husband and I have not won anything. I have even placed orders with them. Not sure if my luck is good with them, but I still enter on line. Maybe one day the prize patrol will come to my house. lol! Yvonne Lamb

DON'T GIVE UP! While, I haven't won PCH yet, I have had some good luck in sweepstakes.

I am an Internet sweepstaker (my hobby) and I won a $40,000 travel trailer in January of 2010 by entering each day for about a month. Now another nice win: I received an affidavit just this week that I have to sign and have notarized because I am one of 21 people picked in a sweepstake for a cash prize. The way it works is that, the Rumba Specialty Meat Company picked 21 people from thousands of entries. Once all the people have returned the proper paperwork, or alternates are picked, 20 people will receive $500 each. So I have won $500 for sure. The 21st person picked will receive $10,000! Just making it into the final 21 is great, but I have my fingers crossed for the big one! I just don't give up and it pays off.
