I have no idea why, when John was deployed, I never sent him anything online. Maybe I was just nervous about shipping to an APO/FPO. But I’m pretty sure the idea never even dawned on me. Kinda, sorta sad, right? Especially since there are so many retailers that now offer APO/FPO shipping as a possibility.

  1. Vitacost, old navy/gap/athleta, Jane.com, the children’s place, Gymboree (but they won’t give you free shipping even if you earn it)

  2. I can’t believe Kohl’s does b/c they are one of THE ONLY retailers that block their site overseas. I can’t even access their site to place an order to a DPO address. Boo Kohl’s.

  4. I have spent hours trying to find companies that will ship rugs to military addresses. Not huge rugs, just door mats and kitchen comfort rugs.

    Can you help?

    Thanks,

  5. Be careful with Target. I ordered from them because they ship to APO and FPO, three different packages from them never arrived. Customer service wasn’t helpful and had no answers except that I should ship it myself.

    1. That is the downside when using APOs/FPOs – packages cannot be tracked, so you assume responsibility from the moment it gets handed to the USPS.

  6. It is amazing to us that so many places do not ship APO/FPO. It is such an easy process and helps our men and women in uniform. What an easy thing to do. We started off not shipping APO/FPO just because we did not know any better but after receiving a few emails from servicemen we educated ourselves and added it to our shipping.

    Now we get several orders a week from service men looking for nice men’s clothing.

  7. Bed Bath & Beyond, Pharmapacks, Dollar General ship to military PO boxes too

  8. Zulily does, but be prepared to pay a bit more for shipping than you would stateside. If there’s others I’ll add them; my sailor worked in our base post office in Sasebo Japan for over 1.5 years.
