Default Who's used bookstoinmates.com? How'd it go?

What's cool about them is that they let people deposit money on behalf of an inmate so all the inmate has to do is look at a printed catalog and mail an order form and the book arrives. No need to lose dignity by asking somebody "please buy me the latest Jackie Collins book".

What's less cool is the F rating from the Better Business Bureau.

But they've got to be basically on the level, or they couldn't have stayed in business for decades.

What's happened when people here have tried them? Were there hassles that were not the fault of the institution mail room? If there were hassles, did you get them cleared up?

I have never used them before. I always go through Amazon, mostly because I am a prime member and get free shipping. But I will defenitly look into this website.
