It seems like summer was just a few short weeks ago, but there’s no denying it … the holiday season is here. And with the holidays comes logistics. Shopping for gifts, planning parties, sending greeting cards and shipping.
To help get holiday logistics under control, UPS and The UPS Store will host a series of Twitter parties to spark ideas and share tips for holiday planning. Joining us in the Twitter conversations are savvy bloggers who will lead the discussions along with a team of panelists. In the spirit of transparency, we want to disclose that we are compensating the blogger moderators and panelists.
Along with great ideas, our Twitter parties will feature prize drawings every 15 minutes. We’re giving away gift cards to The UPS Store and to UPS customers Soft Surroundings, Wayfair.com and Anderson Seafoods. Want to win? Participate by tweeting during the party and including the party hashtag. RSVP by posting a comment and your Twitter handle to this blog post.
Get your game plan ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Mommy blogger Kelly Loubet (@Childhood) will lead a panel of bloggers as we discuss clever ideas to take the hassle out of the holidays. Our team with @UPS and @TheUPSStore will also share tips on holiday resources, such as packing and shipping services and UPS My Choice.
To participate in the chat and prize giveaways, include the party hashtag #HassleFreeHoliday in your tweets. Along with three $25 gift cards to The UPS Store awarded every 15 minutes, we’ll give away a $75 gift card to Soft Surroundings at the end of the party.
