Happy 1 Year Anniversary UPS My Choice!
UPS My Choice 1st Anniversary Cookie Cake

It’s hard to believe that just a year ago we launched UPS My Choice. We’ve signed up more than 1.8 million consumers since then and delivered more than 20 million packages to My Choice members. We continue to hear from our customers how using My Choice makes receiving packages much easier. We also get lots of questions, such as:

Q: I am going to be traveling this holiday season and don’t want to have any packages delivered while I am gone.  Can I have my packages held?

A: Yes! We recently added a vacation option.  All you need to do is navigate to your preferences page under the “Vacation Options” section and tell us when you will be gone. Select whether you want us to deliver your packages to your local The UPS Store (good for vacations lasting up to 7 days) or have us deliver them the day after you return (good for vacations lasting up to 14 days).

Turning one is a big deal!

For the past 365 days, UPS My Choice has been helping almost 2 million consumers get their shipments delivered when and where it’s convenient for them. UPS sends an email or text the day before the package arrives and if the delivery time doesn’t work, there are options to reschedule or reroute it.

Throughout the past year, UPS has sent more than 20 million of those delivery alerts and delivered 18 million UPS My Choice shipments! That’s pretty good for a service that’s just getting started.

To celebrate, @UPS is having two Twitter parties. Join us on Wednesday, October 3 to learn more about UPS My Choice and how it can help you have a hassle-free holiday. Our team of experts will offer tips on how to navigate the bustling shopping and shipping season.
