You’re a Winner – NO Purchase Necessary !

sweeptakes (6)Well, almost, nearly, possibly, maybe, some day . . .  AS shown on TV  in the Publishers Clearing House ads with BIG winners,
JUST complete the entry forms and return by the indicated date. Also,if after reading the enclosed junk advertisements, please help buy something support them and order . . . but there’s “No Purchase Necessary to WIN.”

Of course, it’s also to read the silliness instructions and put labels in certain areas before sending in the not a chance if you don’t order anything  possible winning entry.

Ordering lots of junk items from the advertising inserts would be  nice, BUT it’s NOT absolutely necessary to WIN . . .
WOW, must be getting closer to winning cause this was the 3rd third junk mailing eligibility notification received in 3 weeks. (Grenville was already checking the front door for the prize patrol to ring the doorbell.)

YES, I confess to sending back the 2 earlier notifications cause I’m a sucker? you never know IF any prize money would come without buying anything!. So, I checked the NO THANKS space on the entry/order form and returned my “winning” entry.

THIS week, I knew these “winning” junk mail eligibility notices would continue with all those money-saving/free offers as long as I was sending back my eligibility notice.  Publishers Clearing hasn’t heard that we’re downsizing “stuff” and NOT adding “stuff.”
THIS time, I filed my special “winning” offer – it’s where any future ones are going too.

Grenville told me that I was “always a winner” with him . . . wonder what he meant by that?

Those always sound so promising, don't they. I used to fill those out, but any more they go in file 13 immediately for me too. :)

I have always contended that if you don't buy anything, Publishers Clearing House tosses your entry into the trash!
Nice of Grenville to say that your always a winner to him. AWWW!

I used to send in entries to PCH, but the next form, etc., just never stopped coming - ever. Don't do it anymore.

Thanks Elaine, sent in the firstt 2 "entries" so maybe that prize patrol will show up one day IF we wait long enough!

Daisy & Mona, that's what I will be doing too - deep sixing any more winning entries!

Hey Jimmie...nice to "see" you again and hope you are feeling better after the PT this week. And, Grenville's a "winner" with me too!

I've never heard anyone ever win anything even if they have bought some junk :-) :-) I wonder if anyone do win anything? I doubt that :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!
