    Yes ... but I didn't really know what I had ordered as a kid. One time was enough.

    Yes...I remember putting something like 27 cents change in the envelope and sending it back.

    edited to add: ...and it was a silver quarter, buffalo nickel and two wheaties.

    Yes. It was fun as kid to get any kind of mail and getting approvals made me feel important to my older sisters.

    Yes, as a kid.

    Yes, and I even sold stamps on approval, too. That was 50+ years ago.
