    Just got my second order from Jamie's yesterday. A 1/3" E. campestratus sling w/ enclosure and an order of pinhead B. lats for feeders. Same as with my first order, everything was packed exceptionally well and safe. Everything was very much alive and my mailed questiones had been answered to my satisfaction. I can not recommend Jamie's Tarantulas enough!

    Got my third order from Jamie yesterday...B. vagans & C. ritae plus feeders & enclosures. As with the previous two orders the packaging was excellent, everybody arrived happy & healthy.

    Another Awesome Order!

    Recently, I saw that Jamie's had some Phormictopus sp. purple slings in stock (a T that I had been looking for for months), I quickly snatched up three. Once again, their communication was FANTASTIC, with Jon getting right back to me on a query; they are refreshingly friendly and I love that they ask about previous purchases. My Ts were sent out promptly and, once again, the packing was top notch. All three were in great shape and ate the first day. Jamie's will continue to be my favorite place to shop for Ts. Another perfect transaction!

    Just recently getting back into the hobby after a few years. I bought a B.smithi sling and a fruit fly culture from Jamie. Everything was packed nicely in a insulated box and arrived alive and well. Thank you Jamie.

    100% Positive!

    I received my package from Jamie today and everything was perfect! I purchased a young B. Emelia female, OBT sling and 2 A. Hentzi slings. I also received a B. lateralis Mix Roaches 50 count with a nice little over count and these little guys are active. I threw in some mango slices in their new enclosure and these things are voracious! :eek: Never worked with these before so I'm excited to work with these. This is like my 5th transaction with Jamie and everything was professional and perfect. Thanks Jamie and you can expect my return business.

    Got my order today from Jamie. (I like that 2-day shipping is reasonable and includes LAG.) I bought a female E. truculentus and E. sp. 'yellow' juvie. Both arrived in perfect condition.

    I got a little female A. Geniculata yesterday. Everything was on point as usual. Gotta love the $15 dollar shipping too. Always a pleasure to do business with Jaime.

    I have some trouble reaching Jamie -- emailed her twice with some questions regarding an order I'm about to make on jamiestarantulas at gmail.com

    Is there a better address to use? Hmm...

    I ordered a L. Parahybana 1/2" sling from Jamie and received it the exact day it was supposed to come. Packing was excellent, the T was in great shape and is now my most active. Super happy with my purchase, I'll definitely order from them again

    I ordered 6 slings and 6 juvi enclosures from Jamie and everything came alive and well packed. I'll definitely be ordering more from her in the future!

    I ordered some B. lateralis pinheads and two arboreal sling enclosures. Everything was perfect as usual.

    Thanks Jamie.

    I ordered 3 Grammostola rosea RCF slings from Jamie, and even though one was DOA, I had a good experience with her and Jon. I'll try to keep the story short.

    The tracking number provided to me showed that my package went to a completely different address, I was very worried. In hopes of finding the package (maybe the tracking was incorrect?), I went to my apartment's office to ask if they could search for it. The management does not let residents search for their own packages, so we have to rely on a staff member to find them for us based on apartment # and name. Needless to say, the newest staff member was assigned the task, yet she could not find the package even though I begged her multiple times.

    Later, I went and emailed Jamie, and a few days later, she and Jon got back to me. Turns out there was a problem with PayPal issuing incorrect tracking numbers! Poor Jon and Jamie said they were manually tracking using the receipts from shipping labels, so they were bogged down on responses. They apologised many times, and they have been very polite and considerate - even offering me a replacement for the dead sling despite that the time limit for reporting DOAs had expired.

    All in all, I had a very good experience with Jamie's Tarantulas, and I would definitely order from them again.

    I've been singing Jamie's praises for a while now as I think I've had about 4 transactions with her--3 orders online and a deal at a reptile show. Obviously, when I got a box from her this time I knew it would be well-packed and full of live, healthy tarantulas...

    ...but this has got to be the best transaction I've ever had with her. People talk about the "unboxing experience" in electronics a lot (with T's it's mostly about how well it's packed) and Jamie's is top notch. When I get a box from Jamie I'm always really excited to open it (also, I get to reuse her boxes--a huge plus).

    She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that I was happy. One sling I ordered was a P. cancerides sling advertised at around 1/2." I guess that was an old ad because this girl was at least 1" and and Jamie wrote "F" on the outside. I guess Jamie either really wanted to make me happy or really needed males (Tee hee).

    Secondly, her and I planned a trade for one of my males a few months ago but as she was moving her business to another building it was difficult for her to be responsive. At some point someone else offered me a great deal for the male and I took it (hadn't heard from her in a while). To make up for it she included a free 1" Euathlus truculentus in my box. This is a spider she sells on her website for $30 and she gave it to me for free.

    To recap, I ordered:

    1/2" P. cancerides
    1/2" P. cambridgei
    1" H. spinifer

    and got

    1" P. cancerides (female)
    1/2" P. cambridgei
    1" H. spinifer
    1" E. truculentus

    All I'm saying is order from Jamie right now if you're thinking about it. She's a real professional and a great human being.

    Did I mention $15 shipping with LAG? Seriously, give her your money.

    I recently made my first online order for T's. I decided to give Jamie a try and I couldn't be happier with the results. My little B. emilia and B. smithi arrived in great condition. They were packaged nicely and the heat pack was still warm even after 3 days in transit. Both of them ate the next day and are looking great. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to do business with Jamie again.

    Received six slings from her recently - all in great condition and five of them were larger than advertised. Shipping was super easy and only $17 - can't beat that! :)

    POSITIVE A+++ seller

    This was my very first T purchase -- was completely amazed at the speed at which the order was processed, shipped & the exceptional packaging. My A. Versicolor sling arrived safe and sound as promised. Also picked up the enclosure kit which made it very nice , start you with substrate, cork bark , moss and some silk plants. Web site is top notch as well, and has tons of useful information for keepers.

    Would definitely recommend this seller to anyone and plan on doing more business with Jamie's in the future.

    As always, PERFECT

    I've ordered from Jamie's over a dozen times, now, so I know that I can expect friendly service, inexpensive shipping, healthy animals, and excellent packing. This transaction was no different. I ordered three L. violaceopes slings, and although I had the package held to avoid shipping in a blizzard, they were delivered on a day where temps surprisingly hit 0 degrees (thanks Mr. Weatherman!). Fortunately, the Ts were packed so well that all arrived active and healthy. Jamie was even nice enough to include an awesome freebie. Anther perfect transaction...thanks Jamie and Jon!
