I think jpay has been having some problems with SQ, I saw another post about it. I was able to send money to my friend who is also in SQ reception through Jpay. Make sure if you are inputing the cdc number you are doing it with no dash for example A12345 (NOT A-12345)

Mainline visiting is really easy. No appointments needed, you just get in line, fill out your slip and go see your man!! I used to go really early...like 4:45 am on the weekends so I can be the first person in line so I can get all my visit, and my husband was always up early too, he wanted to be called at 7:30am too. Its really easy, after you get processed, you go to the main visiting room, they take the other part of your slip you fill out and then you have to walk to the podium where the other gaurds are sitting and give them the other part of the slip. Then you just pick a seat and wait for them to call your man and he comes out. You can have one kiss and hug when he comes out and then you just visit your man. You can walk around, take pictures if he has a picture ducut or just sit and chill. Also bring money, up to $40 for food for you too. He can buy the phot ducuts form his housing unit too for $2 a piece I believe

Idk much about mainline but if your bf/husband get to mainline then he's lucky. San Quentin is the easiest prison to get to. But if he's goin to another prison he could be in reception for months to a yr but this Is from my experience

What are the best places to sit?

Also does anyone travel long distances and get an extra Thursday visit? I’m curious about the visiting room conditions on that day, since I assume it’s way less crowded?

I've been on a Thursday & it wasn't that many ppl but it was on a hoilday. Thursdays are hard to get but if he's on mainline you can make your appointments on vpass I heard it's easier if not then you'll be a walk in & that starts at 10:30am
