PCH - Not awarding prize

Posted: 2015-04-28 by    Charlotte M
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
This is on PCH website. How can this happen when the only numbers that should be in the drawing belong to participants?

Even though the Prize Patrol won’t be awarding the $7, 000 A Week For Life prize on April 30th, I am still SO excited because PCH will still be awarding a LIFE-CHANGING amount of money. That’s right, the Prize Patrol still gets to make dreams come true by awarding a Second Chance Prize of One Million Dollars on Thursday! YES, ONE MILLION DOLLARS! I just know that will change someone’s life forever!
So fans, tell me…who out there wants...

On may 12 &13 2014 PCH has cheated me out of my bonus chips. I have not had any previous problems so I hope this is some tech problem that can easily be fixed. I really like playing the games. I'd hate to think I'm being played like I've read on some of these other complaints. Thank You for your time and hopefully quick attention to resolve the problem.

Thank you

PCH - $25,000 Lucky Seven

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I am filing a complaint because I received in my mail box a $25, 000 Lucky Seven scratch off from Publish Clearinghouse some time in Feb 2014. I scratched it off and was very excited that I won that amount. I have not received any correspondence and I believe this is a scam since I did my own research online and others have complained about this as well. For the first time since I became a online member through PCH, I received a package for another scratch off for $500. It is not the PO Box 81 Syosset, NY 11791. I have the documents, I just did not scan them. I just want my money that is all I want....

PCH - Merchandise Stinks

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I did order from PCH. I ordered a dog pillow. Well within a week it split all the way down the seam and the pillow inside and all the stuffing fell out! Second I ordered a package of fuzzy socks. When I washed them by hand in cold water, they shrunk!!! Don't know what country made these items but they are a disaster! I'm so angry that they can forget getting money. I will not even pay to have them returned, not with my money. Shame on this company with so many followers to scam us with these third rate products. These items are cheaper in the store and easier to return. Sorry PCH, you...

you need to make your scratch games on pch.com work properly. also need to remove the winner you have on the bottom, you show the same winner for two months. it okay to show them onces not for months.

earlier this summer my house had burnt down and we had to move to another place for a few months while the renovated my home. During this time I received a bill from publishers clearing house or PCH saying I orders a few items from them and I owed them about $37 bucks and I was like, wait...I didn't order anything from them and if I HAD I would have paid for it by Visa unless it was a subscription or something in payments. I ignored it thinking maybe it was an error and a few weeks later we moved back home and I got another bill from them so I called and talked to a very nice customer service...

PCH - Stay away from these guys

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Why don’t PCH have a catalog to choose from there should be a Catalog so the customers can choose what items is in the catalog without choose what flyers PCH send with the items that was order. If other companies can do then why can your company have CATALOGS to choose from. We have rights to our options and comments because without the customers reply on orders your company would hit rock bottom.

So think about CATALOGS to be made for your customers to be happy with they orders from PCH. Thank you for your time....

For over 35 year's I have done business with PCH even back then it was a letter entry form and my Mom was still alive . I will continue to purchase with them but they should date the payout info on the online form so you know that the form you are filling out does not have a chance for a year or two or less ! All my purchase's with them have met my needs but but honesty up front on dates should be easier to view on the on-line page....
