Do you know what vendor you're going to use? I use Union Supply and he has the catalog, so he's able to pick what he wants and needs and mails me the list, there is a weight limit so he keeps track of the weight when he picks what he wants.

I am getting ready to send a package for the first time here. Tier & Block. Normally on block I would put example (D1) then cell number in the cell number. Or do I put D in the tier and then 1 on the block? Help.

Who are you going through? I used Access Securepak last time and I just looked back at the order confirmation and it says:

Inmate Name
Inmate#: XXXXXX
Tier: A
Block: D
Kern Valley PG A/B 2013 - 4th
3000 W CECIL AVE
DELANO, CA 93215


If I recall, it was sort of filled out automatically when I did it? Not sure if that helps, and honestly not even sure what "A" is for. But it did get to him! lol

That's exactly what I was wondering. It automatically put the A in there and it threw me off. Glad to hear he got it. I will just go ahead with it then thanks.

I was told things have changed with CD's being accepted from Amazon. You can order CD's through a regular package company, but you would have to use another company for a regular package if its in the same quarter. An example would be ordering CD's from Walkenhorst, but buying a regular package through Golden State... This is what i was told and I can't tell you if it's correct because nothing is going through because of this damn lockdown

My guy says they don't see the CD's the get ordered through Amazon. But he also mentioned it might have to do with their level.
I will say, that I ordered a CD through Access Securepak along with his regular package.Even though it was on the expensive side, I was able to make a mix CD which I thought was awesome. I was able to put a bunch of "our" songs on it and it was well received.

Hi ladies,
I'm wanting to order a package for my LO, but I'm concerned about how close it is to the end of the quarter. March 31st is the cut off for the current quarter, I believe, and my question is, if I order it now, and it's delivered before March 31st, but they don't give it to him until April, which quarter does it count towards? Is it based on when the facility receives it or when the inmate receives it? I have a feeling it's when the inmate actually gets it, but maybe someone can give me some info.
Thanks!

Default RE: No more TV's with speakers in CA

Has anyone tried ordering a TV this year? The reason I ask is because i wanted to order a TV for him because the speakers on the one he has is not working. Apparently there has been a chance and they are no longer allowing them to order TV with speakers, if they had them before this year it's ok, but they just can't order a new one.

Question about books from Amazon.

I've sent him several orders from Amazon and they've arrived exactly as expected. But what I realized is that I've always purchased from Amazon as a vender. But when you look at used books, they usually have a third party as the seller, like Goodwill or "Tom's Used Books of WA". If it's ordered through Amazon but it's from one of the used venders, does it still count as an Amazon purchase per the mail room?

I make these types of purchases for used textbooks all of the time, and sometimes the packaging doesn't indicate Amazon at all. Makes me think it wouldn't fly. :/

I've wondered this myself. Will you let us know if he receives it? That'd be cheaper than always buying new from Amazon as the vendor.

Great! I've been sending new and they can be so spendy! I just wish there was a way to ship him all my text books when I'm done with them. $300 a term and I really only want to keep one. :/

You might try going to were you bought the books and ask if they can ship out books.. I had bought a King James Bible that I monogrammed with our initials. But ended getting Life Applications Bible.. A little easier for me to read.. I went back to the Christian Store and asked if they ship books. They charged me a $5 processing fee and the mailed it out.. Needles to say he was very happy when he got his Bible..

I buy my textbooks from Amazon so I'll just sell them back and apply that money toward purchasing for him. It just stinks that I'm rebuying a few of the same books I'm selling. But I'm happy to know I can try and send him used copies.
