For phone orders tell the Union Supply customer representative that you would like to make an ACE Cash Express payment. The representative will provide you with the information you need to make your ACE cash payment and the location closest to you.

Go to the ACE Cash Express store and inform the store clerk that you are making a Union Supply payment, and provide the Order Reference (Sales Order) Number, Exact Dollar Amount of the Order, Inmate ID Number and Inmate’s Last Name. Make a payment exactly the dollar amount due for the order, plus a $3.00 ACE Cash Express service fee per payment.

Q: How do I know that items are acceptable at the facility?
A: We have taken the guess work out of shopping for you. The only items presented on the shopping pages are already approved by the state and/or facility so you can shop with the assurance that everything we make available has been pre-approved. Keep in mind that there are quantity limits on some items. Item restrictions change daily and we do our best to keep these as current as possible.
Q: Do you make substitutions?
A: Due to state regulations, we will only make substitutions if you approve us to do so. If you approve substitutions, we will substitute with an item of equal or greater value. If placing an order from the web, during registration, if you would like for us to substitute items, please check the box which states you agree to have substitute items sent. Please check the YES box on your order form if you would like for us to substitute items ordered that are out of stock.
Q: Why are some of my favorite brands not available?
A: We carry a broad selection of products that meet the stringent guidelines of the correctional facilities. Many of your favorite brands may not be considered appropriate for use inside a correctional facility or may not meet the strict packaging requirements. Please let us know however if you have an item that you would like us to carry and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
