UPS Twitter Parties Help Take the Hassle Out of Holiday Planning

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.

Let’s get this party started! Here are the details to join us:

#HassleFreeHoliday: Thursday, Nov. 17 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET

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.

#HolidayPacking: Thursday, Dec. 1 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever shipped or received? Travel expert Emily Kaufman (@thetravelmom) asks the questions with a panel and the @TheUPSStore team. Along with amusing stories, our panel will share tips to prepare for holiday travel and packaging gifts.

Join us by including the party hashtag #HolidayPacking in your tweets. You’ll also need to use the #hashtag for a chance to win a prize. During the party, we’ll give away three $25 gift cards to The UPS Store every 15 minutes and a $75 gift card to Wayfair.com at the end of the hour.

#GreenHoliday: Thursday, Dec. 15 from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET

Our final Twitter party will feature UPS’s Chief Sustainability Officer Scott Wicker and Aman Singh (@AmanSinghCSR), who writes about corporate social responsibility and sustainability practices. Scott and Aman will discuss practical and creative options to make environmentally-friendly choices during the holidays. Scott will also discuss the green services we offer our customers through UPS and The UPS Store, such as carbon neutral shipping.

Join the conversation and share your ideas by using our party hashtag #GreenHoliday in your tweets. During the party, we’ll give away three $25 gift cards for The UPS Store every 15 minutes and a $150 gift card to Anderson Seafoods at the end of the party.
