One More Thing to Register for If You’re Getting Married or Having a Baby

Over the last few months, I’ve been to three weddings and two baby showers. It’s an exciting time in the lives of my friends, but it’s hectic as well with all the last minute details to finalize and packages coming to the house, especially as the wedding date/due date nears.

While UPS can’t help finalize last minute details, we can help manage all those packages. With UPS My Choice you’ll no longer need to keep up with tracking numbers – we’ll  do it for you. The day before delivery, you’ll get one alert with information on all the packages that are set to arrive the next day. We’ll even send you a four hour approximate delivery window when possible.

Manage Your Home Deliveries with UPS My Choice: 4 Delivery Alerts and 2 New Features

If you’re like most people, you probably did some online shopping this holiday season – on your laptop, tablet, or smart phone, in the comfort of your own home with a big mug of coffee or hot cocoa.

I have to admit, between my busy schedule and ordering everyone’s holiday gifts, I lost track of what packages were coming and where I bought them. But with the text messages from UPS My Choice, I knew when my packages were coming, who they were from, and when they were delivered.

UPS My Choice is a Million Members Strong

We have all been there – you get home after a long day to find one of those “sorry we missed you” notices stuck on the door. And if you’re anything like me, rearranging my busy schedule or trying to find the time to go pick up the package does not always make it on my “to-do” list. Figuring out there just aren’t enough hours in the day is a lesson I have learned pretty quickly and finding ways to “up” the convenience factor has gone from convenient to critical.

At least 1 million other people have joined me and know the enjoyment of a service that tells me when a package is on the way. UPS My Choice sends a free delivery alert (phone, text or email) the day before it arrives.

B2R: A Retail and Delivery Revolution
laptop in cafe

Customers can buy from ANYwhere, and want their products shipped to EVERYwhere. Shipping Business-to-Consumer (B2C) no longer just means residential delivery. It’s the ability to go beyond their home, and include locations more closely aligned with how they spend their time – at work, at school, and in their neighborhood. To remain competitive, businesses must offer delivery options that sync-up with customer’s lifestyle.

That’s where Business-to-Retail (B2R) comes in. B2R allows customers the option to have a package delivered to a retail location rather than their home. How does this help me, you ask? Let’s say you order that electronic device for your daughter that she’s been bugging you to get for the longest time. But you don’t want the item shipped to your home because no one will be there during typical delivery times and you definitely don’t want the package left outside your door. So to avoid the frustration of a missed delivery, you choose to have the package delivered to a retail store near where you live. When the store receives your package, you are notified and you pick it up. Simply said, B2R gives you more control over how your purchase reaches you allowing greater flexibility for deliveries.

UPS Delivers the Future for Nike
Nike MAGs

Where were you in 1989? Listening to New Kids on the Block? Watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?

Back then the UPS shield still had a little package at the top and Nike was heavy into its “Nike Air” shoe line with neon colors and air bubble “windows” in the heels. I know because I had a pair in the sixth grade…but it wasn’t the shoe I really wanted after “Back to the Future: Part II” came out in November 1989 and I saw a pair of self-lacing high tops on Michael J. Fox’s feet!
