I am being compensated by Blickenstaff’s as part of the Mom It Forward Blogger Network. I love to patronize local toy stores. I always find a different selection than I would in those national stores....
UPS My Choice
I get tons of deliveries. In fact, there are probably a few on my porch right now. I have trouble tracking all of the deliveries that I get.
I am also frequently worried about deliveries being left when I am not home or missing a delivery because I am not there to sign for the package.
Frankly, I find delivery to sometimes be almost as much as a hassle as shipping. I am an online shopper so I really prefer to do as much as I can online and when it comes to deliveries, I have often wondered why I cannot check things on my phone and why it is not easier for people on the go. Until now.
INTRODUCING UPS MY CHOICE
UPS is committed to making the on line shopping experience better – not just for shippers, but for the consumers who receive packages at their home as well. That’s why UPS is transforming the package delivery experience with a first-of-its kind, customizable delivery service for residential receivers called UPS My Choice.
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.
UPS My Choice provides a new level of convenience for people who lead a busy lifestyle, receive signature-required packages or shipments of high-value or temperature-sensitive nature. 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.
Delivery Alerts help consumers avoid the disappointment over missing a package they were eagerly awaiting. Consumers can now schedule package delivery around THEIR lives.
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!
Now delivery and tracking that delivery could not be easier. What are you waiting for? Sign up today!
