guess you could just use strpos to see if the string is in the data

there is probably a better preg_grep but I'm not an expert with them

if (strpos($data, 'successfully submitted')!==false or strpos($data, 'Thank you for submitting')!==false or strpos($data, 'submitted successfully')!==false)
{
  echo "success";
}

// !== false is a special check to make 'not found' different the 'found start of data' which returns a zero
