Well, today I decided to order a case of Abena x-plus from Xpmedical.com. I have to say, these people are great to work with. One problem I have with XP is that they ship Fed Ex. Now, I am not sure of your experiences with Fed Ex, but I hate them. The problem is that when they deliver, their delivery times are anywhere between noon and 8pm. This is a problem because I work most nights and have very nosy parents.
Even though I don’t like Fed Ex, I was still toying with the idea of buying a case and a sample of the Dry 24/7, but noticed that if I got that, I would have to pay 5 dollars shipping on the case, even though there is free shipping on cases. Well, today I called them to ask them a few questions.
My questions: 1. why would it charge me for shipping on a case plus a sample. 2. What other options do I have other than Fed ex. And 3. Are the Dry 24/7 a popular diaper.
The answers were brought swiftly and politely. 1. Shipping should be free on the sample because there is enough space in the case to put it in there, the computer just cannot recognize this. 2. Other shipping methods are expensive, but there is always Kinkos, they offer a hold at store where you can pick up a package from them. 3. The Dry 24/7 is a very popular brand and a lot of people have been ordering them because our testing found that they are more absorbent than the Abena x-plus.
Did you hear that? Kinkos allows for store pick up? Okay, its they actually changed their name to Fed Ex Office, but still. I called my local “Fed Ex Office” store and they do offer this service. All you need to do is put your name and their address on the package and then put in the comments, “hold at location.” Then when you go in to pick it up, you present a photo ID and they give you the package. Simple –and the best part is that there is no charge.
I guess we will see how it goes; hopefully I will write a review about the dry 24/7 and include pictures for all of you.
