    Is there any way to order something on amazon and have it sent to a cadet's PO Box? I entered the cadet PO Box and amazon keeps throwing up an error saying they cannot send to that address. Thanks for any help!

    Amazon prime won't ship to a PO Box, you have to ship it via pak mail to the C Store and pay like $4 to pick it up, I believe.

    Amazon Prime will ship to a PO Box. Just select the 3-5 day delivery option. PO Boxes tend to be more convenient for cadets to access and there is no additional charge.

    Just a reminder, if not shipping via US mail, enclose several $1 bills on the top of your package (if sent from home, obviously not from Amazon). Then your cadet won't have to scrounge through pockets to pay the fee.

    Always thinking of ya...

    I had a standing monthly order with Amazon Prime for my cadet over the last two years. I never had a problem. She always received her item. Now whether she picked it up on time is another story. There was one point where it asked me to confirm the address as a legit one. I just reentered it and everything was fine. She would not have gotten the item she wanted with out my prime membership, the shipping would have been too costly without prime.

    If it won't let you send it, try using the following address:

    Your cadet's name (no nicknames please!)
    2360 Vandenberg Dr., PO Box XXXX (Cadet's PO Box #)
    USAF Academy, CO 80841-XXXX (Cadet's PO Box #)

    Just be aware there will be like a ~$4-5 fee.
