Here is one recent comment from a soldier serving in Iraq:

"drugstore.com has been a tremendous asset to female soldiers serving our country in Iraq. The products and variety of items listed on the website allows women of all ethnic groups the opportunity to shop and purchase their personal needs as if they were back at home. I'm happy to hear there is a service like this out there for people serving our country. Great job drugstore.com!"

"We're proud to offer APO/FPO free shipping and an express shipping option to members of the U.S. Military," said Ron Kelly, vice president of customer services, drugstore.com. "For free shipping, we generally recommend that you order holiday gifts and packages no later than November 20th to allow for enough delivery time, but the sooner the better. Due to current world events affecting the United States and other countries, our delivery partners have informed us that it may take longer."

The delivery time to APO/FPO (Air/Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office) addresses with free shipping is usually 10-22 days, but during the holidays it could take more time, so drugstore.com recommends ordering earlier or choosing the express option. Free shipping is available with a purchase of $49 or more for packages that weigh up to 20 pounds.

The express shipping option to APO/FPO addresses usually takes 6-12 days for delivery and is available for an additional charge of $9.99. Again, the sooner a gift is ordered, the better! Details about shipping are available at http://www.drugstore.com/militaryshipping or by calling customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-drugstore (1-800-378-4786) toll free in the U.S. and Canada. Worldwide customer service is also available by calling 1-425-372-4401, long distance charges may apply.
