Yes, the $1 Million prize is a second-chance drawing, as the Sneak Peek for the $10 Million prize did not return a winning entry this time.

Please let us know the Giveaway Number that is associated with the $7.5 Million prize you mentioned. This information will help us to retrieve an answer to your inquiry.

My comments are regarding your resonse to the question. Isn't this the right place to respond to your answer? Also, Rebecca I keep trying to post this and it will not. Why are the 'delete or edit' commands still showing? I don't see it on any other comment posted. What's going on? How are my comments complete the posting process? The action is not finalized so you or someone will be deleting this. the update comment nor the post comment enable me to 'post this'.

i am so tired of PCH telling me that a person with my initials will win , or in my area, and when the winner is announced, it is nowhere near my area, nor my initials. If i dont actually win soon, a Lawsuit is coming.

We're sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction, however we value your input and appreciate your suggestions. Please keep in mind that the rules and procedures of our giveaways can be found on our "Official Rules" page at http://prism.pch.com/Rules/Rules.aspx..., and in the "Sweepstakes Facts" inserts provided in our sweepstakes mailings.

The Prize Patrol Live website was updated to mention that the Prize Patrol was on its way to surprise a winner as we did award a $1 Million prize on February 25, 2010. This prize was awarded to Marilyn Ragin of Miami, FL.

Please note, it was stated in our Official Rules and Sweepstakes Facts that, in the event that a winning entry for the $10 Million prize was not returned, we would hold a "Second Chance" drawing for a guaranteed $1 Million prize. Therefore, although we have not awarded the $10 Million prize yet, we did award the Second Chance prize as promised.

The local TV viewing areas, as referenced in our promotional materials, are defined by a national media research company, the Nielsen Media Research. These areas can be quite large and can cover several hundred square miles. For example, Beverly Hills, California is not a “local TV viewing area” by itself, but is a part of the Los Angeles “TV viewing area.”

For future reference, should you have any questions or concerns regarding our sweepstakes for which you require clarification, please feel free to contact our Customer Service staff by visiting our "Ask Us" page at http://pch.custhelp.com/app/utils/log....

To post a question, simply visit http://getsatisfaction.com/publishers..., type your question into the box below the "Publishers Clearing House" heading and click on "Continue" when finished.

@ Rebecca T: Do you feel you work for a reputable company when you need to word things to get people's attention, make them think they may win, and then switch your tactics when it comes to awarding money? I believe this company is ruining itself. If you are going to give away money, give it away! Out of all the people who play the game, you could make sure at least 1 person got the winning number. But the company does avoid paying out money by making sure no one gets the winning number. I will never buy anything from PCH again. I am personally annoyed by all the scam emails trying to make people think they are going to win (even after no one won, I am still getting the emails several times per day). I will never tell anyone anything good about PCH. Isn't running a profitable company about pleasing the customers? I don't care if I do not win, but I BETTER see someone else win. That does not happen at PCH.

I completely agree with you Amanda! It's a big scheme. I only wish we could get enough people to realize all the 'discrepancies' to begin a class action suit! The PCH have turned into real con artists. I have had some of the most interesting experiences with their online sweepstakes come-ons too. I've written it allllllllllll down. I'm just waiting!

I'd like to find more people who are dissatisfied and PCH and why! The above 'question' may have been marked 'read or handled or' whatever the designation they gave to the original question. Your response and others who think like us, their responses are under the other 'questions' pch offers to customers comments.

For anyone interested, I just checked the verified winners of the last 2 years. There was one 1million usd winner in August 09 and one 5thousand usd for life winner in 09. Since, and up to this date 4/12/10 there have only been $10,000.00 winners. So what's all the mailings about? All of the things they offer can be purchased in stores. PCH's mailings are directed to shut-ins, the elderly, those who have noone to take them out into a drug store. To find their products you don't even have to go to a specialty store or a national department store--just your local drug store and you save all of the shipping and handling. This is the best one yet, you 'win' prizes with an order....you pay $4.99 for ship and handling fees. Guess what? They are 'shall one say, very inexpensively made kitchen utensils'. Now doesn't every man and woman dig on those kind of surprise prizes, right?

When I first started going to PCH online, I would have argued til I was blue in the face with anyone who tried to say they were a scam. I *thought* they had to be a good company, because they have been around so long. I started catching on when I was sent an email, saying ''you got an elite seal!" Well, I thought I was special, one of the few that got this ''seal''. I decided to google this ''elite seal'' only to find out that practically everyone gets one. Then the lies just unfolded one after another. I really feel sorry for the elderly people this company scams, who try so hard to win hoping they can get off disability. PCH: IT IS a LIE to tell people they are in a special select few who got an elite seal, when in reality a large amount of people got them, or almost everyone. It is a LIE to say you are giving out prizes in a viewing area, when in reality the viewing area is practically the whole continent. One day, you will be sued, and I hope that you lose all of your money to the people it was promised to day after day. Do not send out emails promising 10 million dollars every day and expect people to not get angry when it isn't awarded.

I agree! But, will we get responses from our comments, Amanda? Someone has id'd them as "inappropriate?" Explanations are in order to our 'concerns'. They ask for our questions, right? We'll have to wait and see.

There just has been too much propaganda about winning any of these contests. Yes, there are many of us that are loyal loosers, with the intention of winning, but look at it in a realistic way, why would they make you a winner , you are buying their product/junk, and keep buying it, they have you hooked, so why should they let you go? I am one of those that are hooked as well, but I will also be one of those that wil be on the Class Action suit. Mind you all, there already has been a Class Action Suit, and it was awarded. Perhaps there should be another , but a much stiffer fine, and payout to us, that have been promosed to be the winner, and ended up the looser. This is not Politics, this falls into a different Class of Laws, like misrepresentation" they really should Honor their promises, and stop the ficticious pretence of making alot of people a ( the) Winner.

I think people need to think positive and avoid negative concepts and then you might just find yourself a true winner. Have a blessed day.

Its hard to think positive when all you get is a bill. I can't even count all of the things that I have bought, just to get into some of the competition. Because on the online Forms, some times it will not go to the final page unless you purchase something. Does that sound fair? So Trish, think positive, is a good motto, perhaps for somebody that has won at least something.
Keep thinking "

I would like to know who the people in Nashville w/ the initials LF who supposedly is awarded every year is. I have been entering PCH for about 20 years and every few entries say someone w/ initials LF in Nashville TN will be awarded. It's never EVER been me so I'd like to know who. Otherwise it's false advertisement or bait and switch. I need it to be proven they are doing what they say they are doing? Has anyone every contacted a lawyer re: this?
