My LO is really trying hard, and of course, I want to encourage it. BTW, my LO is in a private GEO prison.
Call the mailroom and ask.

Can I have magazines sent directly from the company? I have had success with sending CDs from Walmart.

I never asked about magazines but my friend has been to a few prisons and they had different rules. I've been safe with Barnes and Noble so far as long as it isn't sold from The Market Place (I think that's what it's called.) I do know that the man who reviews the mail at Kingman explained in detail what the process is and there are books on a banned list for even 1 sentence that is not appropriate. He said that magazines are a big problem because even though the subject of the magazine may be innocent, there may be just one add in the very back that isn't appropriate. I asked if they could just tear it out and I believe he said no but I also think he said the inmate had a choice but I'm leaning more towards the no. So far I've only sent cds and a bible and some books on sobriety so mine have gotten through. I would really call them to see what they say.

I have a question: my fiancé is in Lewis Prison, and I do have visits. So, if he wants a CD from Best Buy, Walmart or Barnes & Noble... where do I put his address? Is it he's plain "P.O. Box"? And that is a "DOC"??

I think I would put (for Barnes and Noble)

Name
Address (PO box)
Second address would be his # and facility
City, state, zip

I would just try to find any line to put his #. Without it they say even letters will be returned. Just be creative and don't forget his #. They know the facility once they see the address. Thousands of pieces of mail go there every day.

Put his ADC number as part of his last name

Whenever I send anything I attach his number to his last name So it’s right there no space between his last name and number bc it won’t accept it online but they’ll understand at the prison so for example JOHN Smith123456. This has always ensured it got to him. Hope that helps

Hello Everybody,
I asked to the mail room for ASPC LEWIS - Buckley unit and they told me : Target.com / Barnes and noble and Walmart are approved.

I have a problem I'm from France and I'm trying to process to the payment but I'm unable. I asked to my bank, I've called Walmart online, they did the order for me but it get still cancelled at this end.
The only one where I'm able to make the payment is Target but they don't have the books taht I would like.
Someone lese is coming from Europe and tried or get an order from one of this website ? I don't no what I can do.

Thanks for your help

Do you maybe have a friend in the US that you could send money to and tell them what you would like to have sent and they could send it for you?

Just a thought.

Were you successful with Barnes and Noble? Is your order being cancelled because your in France? What is thier reasoning? Perhaps the address format isn't correct?
