Exclamation Packages - worth ordering online/which is the best vendor?

Does anyone use the nyinmatepackage website to send packages. Do you think the pricing is better than buying stuff on your own or is it acrually better to go with what they suggest. Some items i know i may buy personally such as clothing, but im thinking the food would be good to order since they know how to package it and what items are permitted. What do you think? Do you prefer the website over personal shopping?

No. Walkenhorst and JLMARCUS are better. Read the directive though cause there are things on all the sites he cant have.

Home shopping can be cheaper too.

How are you mailing food items that need to be in a cold environment in order to prevent it from going bad before it arrives to the facility? Im not sure how inmates are recieving these items that need to be specially packaged and how will you know the weight without a scale?

I will never send produce again. It went bad over July 4th week and they had to be thrown out.

I weigh everything according to the oz. On the box. Certain items I'll stick in the freezer and they'll defrost on their way there. They dont have refrigeration there, so most stuff needs to eaten quickly.

Cans you need to add a few oz to because the label states what is inside. But the new directive states no cans, but his place is still taking them.

Emmas is another website that sends food. Mark up is high, but they send the stuff with dry ice. I did it once but it was too expensive to continue. Shopping from home was 1/2 the price.

Ask him where others shop. It takes a while to get the hang of. I got many a package mailed back at our expense in the beginning.

i too wont send produce anymore either! I purchased on Sunday, mailed on Monday, it was delivered on Wednesday and not processed until the following Tuesday!! By then of course, it went bad. I was furious. It seems when you write perishable on the package, they purposely take longer to process now a days!
