UPS My Choice | Take Control of Your Packages!

by Marcy on November 30, 2011 · 2 comments

I don’t know about you, but I do the majority of my holiday shopping online – which means the UPS truck is at my house A LOT. (if they aren’t bringing holiday gifts they are bringing diapers, wipes and other household supplies!) A couple of months ago, I signed up for UPS My Choice – a service from UPS that sends you tracking information and updates via phone, email, or text – whichever you prefer.

I can’t tell you how much I have been enjoying this service! I no longer have to dig through my email to find tracking links – and I know a day in advance which packages to expect the following day AND who they are coming from. I am also given a timeline of when to expect the package. This is especially helpful when I need to get to the packages before the little people in my house can see them!

UPS My Choice is a first of its kind customizable delivery service for residential customers. This service helps you avoid the disappointment and hassle of missing deliveries by allowing you to take control of them. While I haven’t had to do this yet – I LOVE that I have the option of electronically signing for packages via UPS My Choice. This is – in a word – brilliant!

We all have busy lives, and being able to schedule package delivery around your schedule is another great feature of UPS My Choice. At the very least, if you know when a high value or temperature sensitive package is being delivered, you can make arrangements for someone to help you with the package because with UPS My Choice you know when the package is going to be delivered (within a short window of hours). And if someone can’t physically be at your house to grab the package, you can re-route it via UPS My Choice for a small fee.

UPS My Choice offers two levels of membership:

UPS My Choice Basic Membership (FREE) includes:

  • phone, email or text alerts 1 day in advance with a 4 hours approximate delivery time frame – FREE
  • ability to electronically authorize package release (if a signature is required) – FREE
