Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes have odds as long as many big lotteries, if not longer. But the good thing about them is that the prizes are high and you don't have to buy a ticket for the chance to win. I'd recommend that you concentrate your sweeping time on other sweepstakes that have better odds, but if you'd like to drop in a few entries for the $10 Million prize, visit the Publisher's Clearing House Giveaway Number 1170. The sweepstakes ends on June 23, 2008, and you can enter every day until then. To be eligible, you must be a resident of the U.S., Canada, or the UK, but only U.S. residents are eligible to enter online. Alternate entry by mail gives you as many chances as you have envelopes to send.

Be careful of spam when you enter PCH sweepstakes. The entry form contains pages worth of "offers" and you should read the form closely to be sure that you don't accidentally agree to buy something that you don't want. Some people use a separate email address to enter Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes, to avoid getting spam in their regular or sweepstakes emails.

Thanks for all the info on the down sides of entering. I’d hate to get caught up in all the spammy biproducts because I really only use one email account for everything.

Thanks, Erin, I’m glad you liked it. I’ve been debating putting up PCH sweepstakes at all, since I can’t really recommend them too highly. But I thought that a lot of people are looking for them, and that it would be better to include them and talk about their disadvantages than ignore them and let people enter them unaware of the possible drawbacks.

Not that PCH is totally bad; their prizes are amazing. There have just been so many people who have gotten a bad view of sweepstakes because they were disappointed by misleading ads from PCH, or had relatives who were, or had other problems.

Hello, Sue,

No, I’m not associated with any company that runs sweepstakes — I work directly for About.com.

Hi, Lisa,

Yes, they are real, and they are posted to help people find and enter sweepstakes. The more people enter, the more successful sweepstakes are for their sponsors, and the more prizes get offered. Plus, everyone helping each other find sweepstakes means more chances for everyone to win.
