I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting, sponsored by Publishers Clearing House. I received a product sample and promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Who remembers watching Publishers Clearing House commercials as a kid? The Prize Patrol would show up at some lucky winner’s house, a fistful of balloons and one Very Large Check in their possession, as the surprised resident would open the door and then step outside to claim their check, jumping up and down from the excitement of being awarded such a large and unexpected prize.
I wanted to win so bad.
I always made sure my mom received the Publishers Clearing House entries when they arrived in the mail, and I always asked her to fill them out. Because if we won a million dollars, I knew that my parents would buy me a horse (and my young self pretty much lived for the day when I would have my very own horse).
Unfortunately, we never did win. And I did, eventually, get my own horse. But that hasn’t changed the way my imagination runs wild when I start thinking about all the things I would buy if I won a prize from Publishers Clearing House.
Publishers Clearing House has a new sweepstakes, and it’s even more awesome and exciting than the prizes from my childhood. How does $5,000 a week for the rest of your life sound? It sounds pretty awesome to me.
The “Win $5,000 a Week Forever” sweepstakes will choose a lucky winner to receive $5,000 a week for the rest of their life. But here’s where it gets even more awesome. You get to choose an inheritor…and once you’re gone, your inheritor gets $5,000 a week for their rest of their life, too!
Publishers Clearing House has already awarded a $5,000 a week “Forever” prize to John Wyllie of White City, Oregon.
It’s super easy to enter. You can enter online here. A winner is guaranteed to be picked in August, and it could be you (or me – I entered!).
If I win, I’ve already got my money spent. Since I already have a horse, I’ll buy a beautiful sparkly unicorn.
If I can’t finance a sparkly unicorn, I’ll pay off debt (including my house), fund both of my kids’ college educations, hire a capable financial planner, and go somewhere tropical for a month (or three). That would be awesome.
What would you spend your money on if you had $5,000 a week for the rest of your life?
Special thanks to Publishers Clearing House for sponsoring today’s discussion.
