Publishers Clearing House - Does ANYONE EVER win those damn things?
My mailbox is getting spammed with those stupid Publishers Clearing House entries - and like an idiot I keep entering them (skipping the magazines/knives/towels/etc. sales pitches; I figure if I win a million dollars, then I might by a magazine subscription from them!) - but I think I'm just wasting my time.

Does anyone know ANYONE who has ever won anything from this perpetual contest?

1. Supposedly, someone does.
They do those commercials where they talk about people who throw their entries away because they think they have no chance to win and then they cut away to the winners who will say "that's what I used to think". But I'm convinced PCH just hires actors for those ads.

I gave up entering their contests a long time ago. What's the point?

2. Yeah, that's kind-of what I'm thinking.
I just wondered if anyone had any first-hand knowledge of anyone ever having won.

Or if it really is just a scam to sell kitchen utensils and magazines. They'll never get a sale from me at this rate!

3. Exactly.
They push the magazine subscriptions agressively. No, I don't want any more magazine subscriptions, thanks.
