I ordered from PCH earrings that were very cheap looking & fell apart when i tried to use them. I also ordered a guitar back in Nov. as a x-mas present. I received 1 notice a couple of weeks later that said it was on back order. As of Jan., I STILL HAVE NOT RECEIVED IT!

I want PCH to stop sending me their "fliers" and junk mail. Their products are JUNK!!!

I have bought items from Publishers Clearing House for a long time and been generally satisfied, but...

In PCH email campaigns they sell a myriad of items other than magazines. One of them is called "5 Heart Shaped Angel Blessing Stones" and they qualify this saying that it is polished acrylic. To a reasonable person you might assume that this is casting rosin. That was my assumption. NOPE, what I got when I ordered was el cheapo two piece plastic shells with a small plastic angel figurine inside, similar to the cheap gumball machine toys. They charge over $16 (with s&h) for these pieces of junk.

I tried to find a complaint form or address at PCH.com but thet have insulated themselves very well. Each time you think you have found a complaint form, it recycles you to another FAQ page. So I complain here.

Does anyone at PCH actually examine the junk they sell? These "Angel Blessing Stones" are nothing of the sort.

I agree that Publishers Clearing House sells Junk. I bought a Mickey Mouse watch from them, and soon after wearing it, the watch band started falling apart. I have had to super glue it 3 times. How many more times do I have to glue it. I also bought an Angel Light from them. The light did not work. They sent me a replacement. I tested it and it worked, but I haven't tried it since because I have very little faith in the product. I bought an Electric Razor which could be cleaned with water if necessary. Well, the razor only lasted a few months. The metal mesh over the cutting blades came apart and cut up my face. And, it doesn't charge properly any more. I recently bought a trio of flashlights from them. On the large flashlight, one of the springs that hold the batteries in fell off. I haven't tried the smallest flashlight yet. I have purchased other itmes which I am not happy with. The only item that I have been happy with are the duffle bags that I purchased. I doubt that I will puchase anything else from them. It's just throwing away money, and I don't have money to throw away when I'm trying to live on a small social security check.
