The packages from third party sellers (and are considered "publishers") have their return address label with the Amazon logo - it will definitely make it into the prison/jail. Do not spend the money on Fedex because that will certainly get rejected (unless it is legal mail).

When your inmate calls you now, it is a LONG DISTANCE call with rates ranging from 23 cents to over $1.00 per minute. We provide you with a LOCAL telephone number - local to the prison area code your inmate is housed. The local rates are more like 5-6 cents per minute. If you use 300 minutes at $.23/min - it is $69/mo.; at $.06/min is $18/mo. We charge $16.95 for the line, you save $34.05 per month.  This example...

InmateAid has a service where the inmate can respond to your letter.  We receive many letters to our members who have kept their address private.  We scan the inmate letter and upload it into your account.  We charge $1.49 to retrieve the letter.  It has created a "pen pal"-like community - you can write somewhat anonymously and the inmate has a way to stay in touch, however you control the situation with InmateAid being in-between.

You will only know that your inmate has received your letter when they tell you by telephone or by return letter. There is no verification process. Prisons consider mail a sacred item that represents a connection to the outside world. Prisons are sensitive to an inmate’s rehabilitation and as such feel strongly that correspondence is critical to that end. We have a strict policy, in the event that a letter gets returned to us, we effort to locate that inmate's...

The service is for prisons or jails or ANY correctional facility where inmates have access to a telephone in the US.  Your account is pending until we email you your number. If for any reason we cannot service your inmate, we will gladly refund your money.

You will have to create a "Personal Inmate Page" with your inmate's information, their inmate ID # and the facility they are incarcerated in. Once that page is created, you will then be able to click a button "Send Letter" and process letters and photos right there.

Once you have selected an inmate from "Search Personal Inmate Page" - you are then taken to their Personal Page - at the top of their profile, there are two buttons, one says "Send a Letter", the other "Follow Inmate". If you follow inmates, you can then interact with them via InmateAid where you can write them and they can write you back through our Response Service - sort of like a Pen Pal feature, especially if you do not...
