When it comes to shopping, I find myself shopping more and more on-line. It is so convenient to NOT have to go to the stores. Plus, I usually find coupon offers to save money and usually end up getting free shipping. I actually think I order too many things and could tell when the UPS man was off duty at a local store and recongnized me! LOL!!
When I order, I am like a kid on Christmas!! I go into UPS and track my packages. It is probably a good thing that there is not a tracking device on my packages or I’d be watching that light from the UPS hub all the way to my front door!! Unfortunately, there have been times when I am not home and have to ask my neighbors to watch for packages for me since I don’t want them left out for someone to see. Enter UPS My Choice — a new service that allows you to customize some details about your package deliveries!
UPS My Choice helps avoid the disappointment and hassle of missing a home delivery by empowering consumers to take control of their UPS deliveries. This ground-breaking service increases the likelihood of a successful delivery on the first attempt by providing delivery alerts, specific delivery time frames, reroute options, a visibility dashboard and electronic signature release – all by accessing ups.com through a computer or mobile phone. It frees consumers from worrying about when packages will arrive, where they will be left or what to do if they are not home to receive them.
UPS My Choice provides convenient options that align with the way people work and live. There are two levels of membership:
- UPS My Choice members receive phone, e-mail or text alerts notifying them a day in advance of when packages will arrive and providing a four-hour approximate delivery time frame. They also have the option to electronically authorize release of packages that require a signature and, for a $5 transaction fee, to reroute a package to another delivery address or have it delivered to the nearest The UPS Store® location.
- 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!
