Update: I called R&R this morning and spoke with Sgt Carr rechargeable batteries and chargers are considered quarterly package. In case anyone else needed to know.

Ladies I have a question to ask for those who order through Access Securepak for their loved one's packages. Exactly how long does it take for the package to be shipped and for them to receive it? I would greatly appreciate the info.

Default Can I send a package right now or wait?...

Hello There!

I need help determining if my son can get a package. Here's his circumstance as of today:
He arrived at PVSP from reception (Tracy), December 11.
He said he is on a 10 day hold and will see committee any day.
He sent me a list of items asking me to order from Secure Access.
I called Secure Access and they said they have him located at PVSP, but he cannot get a package yet.

What should I do? I have until Dec 31, to order but if I can do it now I want to.

Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

MarMar

You can always call his counselor to find out if he is eligible for a package at this time. But if Secure Access is saying he's not. There is no way you will be able to order it through them until their records state he is eligible.

Your going to have to wait. They need to determine his housing first. Also you have until the last day of December to order his package. It's easy and efficient since you got a list, you can order it online quickly .

Thank you for taking the time to reply.
How do I attempt to get a hold of his counselor, let alone find out who it is?
I'm thinking my son would provide me that info.

Thank you again!

Thank you for replying. Ok that does makes sense. It's confusing when you hear different things for ordering packages via family members.

Appreciate the help.

Default Special Purchase Order and Regular Package Questions

Hello-
My son's order includes SPO items (CD Player, Ear Buds) along with normal items (clothes, food, shampoo).

I'm using Access Securepak and I'm confused about ordering the CD Player and regular items and if they will count as one quarterly package?

I searched this thread but didn't find anything specific regarding my question(s). I even looked on the S.A. website and I called but they are closed today for the holiday.

Does my son have to choose now if he wants a CD Player as his quarterly package or his clothes? Or are they included as one quarterly package but ordered separately.


Thank you in advance for any direction and help.

MM

Yes, you can submit a SPECIAL ORDER and get him a quarterly package. I ordered my baby a while back a CD player. In addition I order a quarterly package too. Special orders are meant for electronic things such as TV's, radios, etc....not to confuse it with there regular package for hygiene, and food products

Also just an FYI battery chargers and rechargeable batteries are quarterly only. I know my guy was told they were part of Special Purchase which was not correct.

JacksGirl,
Thank you! I ordered the rechargeable batteries as part of his regular package.
But the CD player he wants is out of stock. Figures, right!
I guess I'll have to check back every few days. No biggie.

Nica,
Thank you for clarifying the special purchase order. I was able to order the regular package, but will have to check back for the out of stock CD player on the SPO. Just our luck! lol

Next time you hear from your son, ask him to go through the catalog, he might find another.

FYI....when my LO, is in need of a big ticket item, he always gives me a back up in case the first one is out of stock or they no longer carry it .

MM, your welcome .

You are very welcome MM. Yeah I have a feeling your son wants the same Cd player my Guy did. I finally ended up calling Access and telling them I really wanted to order from them but could not find what I was looking for and what do you know it was in stock but did not show up on the website.

You can send up to 10 cards in a manila envelope. It won't be returned as long as you have the correct postage lol....make sure the envelope has no metal preferably the adhesive one to seal it. You can find them at Target or Walmart.

No glue, no glitter, no false back, no lipstick kisses, no lip-gloss kisses, no stickers, no musical cards...and none bigger than an 8x11 size card.

Make sure that the back of each envelope has his name and CDCr # on it, you don't want any of them to get lost. Oh, and in a note let your LO, know how many cards you are including in the envelope to account for ALL of them

Good luck.

I have sent cards in and received them with glitter. I also kiss all of his letters with bright lipstick and he gets them.
