UPS My Choice

UPS My Choice is a Million Members Strong
UPS My Choice Destination of Choice sweepstakes

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.

UPS My Choice – Just in Time for Cyber Monday
UPS My Choice

It’s that time of year – yes, holiday shopping season! Whether it’s for you or for family and friends, online retailers are offering spectacular deals – especially on Cyber Monday. This online shopping “holiday” made its debut on Nov. 28, 2005,  and has quickly become one of the largest online shopping days of the year.

According to comScore, the 2010 U.S. online holiday shopping season brought in a record-breaking $32.6 billion in retail spending. This marked a 12 percent increase over 2009. Cyber Monday made history when consumer spending exceeded $1 billion for the first time in a single day. As internet commerce continues to grow, package delivery is becoming an important element of the full customer experience.

After the leftovers from Thanksgiving are eaten and family and friends have traveled back home, maybe it’s time for a little online shopping. But while you’re online, make sure you also sign up for UPS My ChoiceSM, a new service that places greater control over home delivery in the hands of consumers.

It’s finally here – and in plenty of time for the holidays. Excitement is building around the launch of UPS My ChoiceSM, a new transformational service that is available today to customers across the United States.

UPS My Choice is a new service that places greater control over home delivery in the hands of the consumer. And, if that doesn’t get you excited, what if I told you that you could receive delivery alerts, specific delivery time frames, reroute options and much more? If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, would you like the ability to know a day in advance when your packages will arrive within a four-hour approximate delivery time? Or what about a two-hour confirmed delivery window?
