Have you ever missed a UPS package because you needed to sign for it and you weren’t home? Then when they came back the next day, you still weren’t home so they didn’t leave it again? If you had known when they were going to come, you might of been able to catch it, but you didn’t. So now you have to go to the UPS main shipping place and pick it up. And then you have to pick it up yourself, or someone else that lives in your house, because otherwise they won’t release it. Have you been there? I have, and usually I have to send my husband since he works near the office. But until now, there wasn’t much I could do about it.

UPS My Choice is a service that allows you to track your packages so you know when they will arrive, and if you know you need to sign for it, you can re-route it or even authorize them to release the package without a signature. I could of used this a couple of months ago!

UPS My Choice has a FREE membership where members receive phone, e-mail or text alerts notifying them a day in advance of when packages will arrive and provide a four-hour approximate delivery time frame.  With this membership you can also electronically authorize release of packages that require a signature and reroute a package to another delivery address or have it delivered to the nearest The UPS Store® location for $5 transaction fee.

UPS My Choice Premium Membership, available for a $40 annual subscription, provides all the benefits of a regular UPS My Choice membership at no additional cost and in addition, members gain access to an online delivery calendar that shows the status of UPS home deliveries.  Premium members also are offered a two-hour delivery window.  A $5 transaction fee is charged only upon successful delivery of the package within the two-hour commitment.  As a Premium member, consumers can even provide their UPS driver with detailed instructions on where to leave a package.  They just select from a drop-down list of location options like — leave it at the Side Door…the Garage…on the Porch…in the Management Office of my apartment complex or the Shed out back!

I think everyone can use this service and since it’s FREE, I suggest you register for UPS My Choice right now!  I did and I’m so excited to have more control over my UPS deliveries.  And with all the blog reviews I do, this is sure to come in handy more than once! It was super easy to register and only took me a few minutes.

Win It!
