This company has a bad review on the BBB and the RipOff report. I would pay with credit card and then contest the transaction if it goes awry if I use them. If they don’t give refunds I wouldn’t be surprised if a class action occurs in the future.

Example. Phase 1 is allowed one sec repack per quarter (every three months). If you spend $20 on ordering one, that's all they get until the next quarter. You don't get to break up the $80 total and spread it out over their allotted time. So maxing out the $80 in one go allows the inmate to receive more, since there is such a stretch between.

It's not as bad for Phase 2 who are allowed one every other month, and Phase 3 can have one once a month.

That's why I recommend doing it that way.

I've never had any issues getting my refunds. Often they're there long before I even realized an item was out of stock and the issued one. I send an invoice just because it's the inmates who sort them when they come in, so shit can happen there, especially if the inmate is a GP and knows it's going to an SO.

I just found out this exists, and I would love to send my guy something. But do I understand correctly that I have to be on the approved visitors list to be able to send him a package? We're waiting for me to be approved for phone calls, but because I live in Europe I didn't apply for visits yet.

You can send as long as you are approved for calls and/or visits.

You can’t send one unless you have an American card with a matching American address though.
