Just as I stated above...I have been entering the pch sweeps for 8 plus years. I have purchased once. I have also tried to use the pch search/win tool many times. Each week, they send me e-mails saying "someone with the same initials as YOU are going to win" !!
They say you do not have to purchase to win. The items they have for sale are junk. I know someone who buys almost everything they offer, and she has to replace or toss items frequently. Its sad that I have used so much time entering these sweeps...just hoping for the chance to HELP my family.

Dear PCH,
After weeks of trying to gain access to your "Search&Win" contest engine, I am giving up! Every time I attempt to enter your site, I instructed to "CHANGE MY PASSWORD" and, after doing so, I still cannot gain entrance. I'm fed up with this.

I am also been a customer of PCH for 14 years (since 1994) and have not won anything.

You WILL NOT be receiving any more orders from me.

Furthermore, PCH continually MISSPELLS MY LAST NAME. My last name is "JOHNSON" - NOT "Johnson"

I will pay off my remaining accounts but YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY MORE ORDERS from here on.

Thank you for your attention.

YES, we agree 100% and we are immigrant families mixed with Mayflower and Plymouth residents. is it not amazing how everything turns ot.
Now to the PCH scam- they have been sending various- even before Internet- these JUNK MAIL to all our family members... They have no shame. Some of our immigrant relatives from Europe, Asia and Africa were laughing at the "immaturity" of this ad by PCH and asked us 'I don't think American people are dumb enough to get caught into this?" Then sadly we 9the US citizens) explained how there are desperate people (even in other countries- but they said - "we are underdeveloped & expect to be scammed" so are on watch out all the time!! BUt in USA- the land of TRUTH, FREEDOM and JUSTICE??- they were very puzzled- now they KNOW) and we explained how desperate and lonely people of USA- many in their little apartments and barely socialize because of WORK...WORK..7 more WORK..just to pay Corporate Bills (At&T, Energy Corps, Water Company, Light/Electric, Books, School, Medical supply, Doctor Bills, CLOTHES- the "biggest" scam, bedding, carpeting, roofing, CARs & GAS, heaters, FOOD- too much (make us fat), and the list of many UNWANTED "stuff"- which I think my relatives also came to USA for...lol..Now they may think of leaving..Iwe are not sure. It is like the old fables of 'Greed for materialism vs. simple good people".
If greedy the Devil will catch ya! said our Grandpa. So INDEED the Devil (i.e. PCH in this case) did catch us. We have to LET go & use our time to make real money by growing Organic and Free of Genetic Modified FOOD. This will give each one of us a PIECE of land too !!! (the Weyerhauser Crooks will not like it- The "biggest" land owners in USA & monopolizing LAND).
My African & Asian - relatives said- "Then it looks like even our beggar old woman has a tiny piece of her land where she has her shack" while we do not own anything other than RENT for our apartment (the apartments built by BIG corporations to rent to POOR WORKER BEES !!)
PCH is owned by these Mega Billionares & this is exactly HOW they made their "dirty" Billions.
Wake up and DO NOT BUY- use little and save a LOT for children. Grow your food, make own electricity- solar panels and wind mills and wells and rain water - IT IS TIME now.

I also have been ordering and entering since 1964 and have yet to win anything all the pictures of people winning looks good but as for me you would think in all of these years I would have won something. I don't believe ordinary people win, maybe all the pictures are of family members of PCH., I also doubt that they even read these complaints. Janet Lorts, angelsworking247@yahoo.com

I also having been playing &ordering from pch since 1994, And have been told I'am going to win just 1 more order.I'am also tired of beingtaking advantage of by scamers.
I don't believe anyone wins.And most magazines are cheaper through the company.
I won't be ordering anymore either.

Agree with everyone. I have been playing for a year and have ordered a few items. The stuff they send you is junk with outrageous postage and handling.
Everyone, think of all the stamps you spent money on to send in the entries. Plus, they ask you to find the blue sticker, green sticker with certain numbers on them. You have to cull through their multiple inserts. totally crazy.

Now I just toss the junk mail away and have blocked their email address. the whole thing is a scam and a waste of your time.

That's just it--only properly 'stickered' entry forms are accepted. They do make it a chore to get it all filled out exactly to their specifications. And that "window" on the back of the envelope shows whether you ordered or not--non orders probably hit the trash can! Now I've gotten some good deals on magazines, (beats the door to door folks who sell subscriptions you may never receive) but I won't buy stuff. I know of a retirement home resident that told everyone she was gonna get a visit by the Prize Patrol and gathered folks up to wait for their arrival, which never came...and the entry you send in today is for the prize awarded a few years from now!!! I just look through the ads, in my bathroom, and then throw it all away.
