    Advertisements
    Has anyone ever used amazon to send their SO something while they were deployed? What was your experience with them?

    TIA

    I haven't sent anything to DH while deployed, but I live overseas with an APO address and I use Amazon on pretty much a weekly basis, shipping to my APO address, and there is no problem. It's fast (as long as I get stuff shipped directly from Amazon) and reliable.

    I use Amazon alllll the time and I used it while deployed and have never had an issue. Some things they can't ship but then I just use shipitapo.com

    Yep! Just definitely make sure it is shipped directly from amazon and not a 3rd party seller.

    DH ordered stuff to ship to himself all of the time while deployed. I also caution third party sellers. Try to only get supplies from amazon directly.

    DH used them and didn't have an issue, but yeah I would order from Amazon only and not from people selling through them.
