NFCF Special/Quarterly Package Q&A
 
Does anyone have any info on sending care packages to NF? Vendor website, and/or the do's and don'ts when sending?

I recently sent a package from Walkenhorsts they have a website or you can call

you can also use yellow ribbon, dont like em too much. you can use access but only for food purchases. we cannot use gamestop anymore to buy game consoles for them only games etc, we have to go thru walkenhorsts for the consoles now.

Package question
 
So, my guy asked me to send him a package last month...he sent me a list of things, but said to get what I could afford. He had a radio on the list, and I couldn't afford that then, so I didn't order it. However, I have the money now, and he asked me to get it...said I could place it as a special order package (or something like that). However, when I'm on the Walkenhorsts site...it only lets me choose California Quarterly Package. Would I still send it via this?? Since I sent him a quarterly package in Sept, will this prevent me from sending the radio now?? *confused*

histink7 10-02-2010 01:45 AM

Yeah he shud be able 2 get a special order package, try access secure pak, As the 4th quarter just startd make sure u verify it 4 the special purchase

MAVJJ 10-02-2010 05:53 AM

i could be wrong, but i thought i read on access secure pak that special order can be ordered anytime. good luck. im getting ready to send my husband his qtly pak.

HesMyForever 10-02-2010 06:14 AM

Ty....I was using walkenhorsts site...so maybe that's the problem?

ladyerks 10-03-2010 01:01 AM

Walkenhorsts was probably the problem cuz I have sent him multiple pckgs n went through access...

I think you can send through GameStop...that's what I've used in the past. However, they are not allowed to get packages currently.

thanks!! :)For future reference & once they are able to receive packages...what games have you sent? I'm clueless as to what games to surprise my loved one with.:confused:

DaddysGurl12 12-28-2011 05:14 AM

Gamestop no longer does it I tried a while back and the people from Gamestop and the ladies in the mailroom said they are no longer dealing with this facility due to people using fake cards...i had to go through Walkenhorst to get my honey his games...what sucks is they are more expensive then Gamestop but we no longer have a choice...As for games u can never go wrong with Madden or any sports especially whatever his favorite sports are go with that or also u can get a shooting or fighting game....they have plenty to choose from just go with what ur man played when he was out or what he has told u he likes....but I would wait on sending it bcuz they cant get them yet they are still on lockdown...I hope this helps...

jayjay2 12-29-2011 12:45 AM

I made the mistake of sending CD's through barnes and nobles...apparently they can't receive CD's (or any games) there anymore, only books.

lizzie416 12-29-2011 12:49 AM

I called NFCF like 2 wks ago and was told that we are allowed to send games through Game Stop...the secretary said it was a new memo that they had received, but it seems nothing is for sure at NFCF so I would confirm before you order just to be on the safe side. The actual XBOX console does have to be ordered through Walkenhorsts. :(.

As to the Books, I was told they do allow B&N.

Hi to everyone and Happy New Year! :D My husband wants the quarterly package whenever it is allowed from Access. But I notice they have removed NFCF from their list of programs on their ordering website. Has anyone talked to them? It's a holiday so I just thought I'd ask you ladies if any of you have talked with Access? I guess they must be waiting until the lock down is over? I had hoped to order in advance of delivery. Thanks for any info.

I talked with Access today. They told me because of lockdown they will accept no NFCF orders at this time. She says that when they will, their website will offer NFCF as a location. Right now it is not even listed on their website. Sigh.:(:(:(

I was looking at the XBox today on walkenhorst and it is very heavy and very expensive.:blah: I didn't see the option for it to be a special package. Would it have to be ordered as a quarterly package do you ladies think? Thanks for any info....saving my quarters to get him one!:thumbsup:

I heard the same thing from Walkenhorst...no more special packages at NF, electronics count as quarterly purchase. Curious, does anyone know if the rules changed for inmates not at NF?

Thanks!! Does anyone know if there is a limit on how much we could buy/spend? I know there is a weight limit :(.

I don't think there is a price limit. The only limit I'm aware of is the weight limit.

FYI...in the past (prior to this lockdown), I've been able to order packages from more than one vendor, at a time, for him. I'll have to ask him (because I always get it confused), I THINK that if a package contains no food, it's not considered a "quarterly" package and will still be accepted (when not on lockdown)...it's not called a "special" package, but basically that's what it is. BUT...I might have it backwards...it might be packages that contains only food, lol. I forget. D'oh! :rolleyes: I will get back to you on that.

My husband was told that after the 11th packages can come in! We'll see but sounds good.
