  42. Kim says:

    Code FC353
    What a nightmare! Hours, I can’t get back. Why should this be so difficult?
    I’ve already sent my order and final step. I normally do not do this. Wow! Just wow!
    Now I know why! You’d think pch would have more people interested if it wasn’t so difficult to “ENTER” and the “NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO WIN”! Yet online, you can’t get past the ads and the the sale items. Like the microwave egg cooker for 5 payments of 20$ S&H, taxes. $150 for an egg shaped piece of plastic!
    Or a cutting board 3×4 inches, to cut an egg, or a cherry tomato! Only $200! Great!
    No wonder most people included me, throw away the Pch envelope without opening it. There’s NEVER a final step! I can’t wait to order again!
