Shipping to Prisons


Ay Caramba delivers to penitentiaries, but we strongly suggest you contact the prison first to confirm that they accept deliveries and to note any special regulations the prison might have. Some prisons don't allow delivery of hardcover books. Others place a limit on the number of items contained in a package.The label on the outside of the packages will indicate only the destination address, Ay Caramba’s name, and return address. Special labels or instructions to the packages can't be attached to the package. Gifts can't be sent anonymously to inmates; the sender's billing address will appear on the order invoice. Because inmates cannot sign for deliveries, packages must be sent via U.S. Mail. While Ay Caramba often sends packages via U.S. Mail, we also use UPS and FedEx. There is no way for customers to request a specific shipper. To avoid delivery problems, you might consider having the items shipped to you and then shipping them to the penitentiary via U.S. Mail.


Returns & Refunds


  • We will issue a refund to your original form of payment for items returned within 14 days.

  • Items must be returned in their original condition; shrink-wrapped products must be unopened.

  • Expect your refund in the same form of payment used for your purchase 7-14 business days after we receive your return package.

  • If the mistake is ours (damage or error), we'll be happy to refund shipping charges, including return shipping charges. Otherwise, we will refund the original price of the book(s).
