You’re Invited! UPS My Choice One Year Anniversary Party on Twitter

I don’t know about you, but I love receiving packages. I love when I see one sitting beside my mailbox or when a delivery driver knocks at my door and hands me a box with a goody inside. I especially love to track my packages. As a matter of fact, I’ve been known to get a little ummm, obsessive about it and then when I see the status updated to out for delivery I get a little bit giddy and jump and scurry to the window at the slightest sound of a big truck heading down my street. I sometimes drive myself (and my dog) crazy with my constant checking, which is why I’m pretty sure the UPS My Choice service was created just for me. Obviously UPS loves people and animals. Obviously.

Know what makes me love this service possibly the most? A basic membership is FREE! At that level, you get a long list of benefits and features, like:

  • Delivery alerts via text, phone, or email the day prior to delivery.
  • Approximate delivery time
  • Authorize shipment release (basically go online and authorize UPS to leave your package without requiring a signature when you won’t be home to sign).

Some of the features you receive as a premium(paid) member:

  • Delivery planner
  • “Leave at” Instructions (driver instructions)
  • Leave with a neighbor instructions (neighbor must live within walking distance

UPS My Choice is having its first birthday! Ooh, first birthdays are so exciting, aren’t they?

For the past 365 days, UPS My Choice has been helping almost 2 million consumers get their shipments delivered when and where it’s convenient for them. UPS sends an email or text the day before the package arrives and if the delivery time doesn’t work, there are options to reschedule or reroute it.

Throughout the past year, UPS has sent more than 20 million of those delivery alerts and delivered 18 million UPS My Choice shipments! That’s pretty good for a service that’s just getting started.

To celebrate, @UPS is having two Twitter parties. Join us on Wednesday, October 3 to learn more about UPS My Choice and how it can help you have a hassle-free holiday. Our team of experts will offer tips on how to navigate the bustling shopping and shipping season.

Two parties! I love that they’ve decided to hold two parties because let’s face it, not everyone is available at the very same time on any given day, plus this will be way too fun to miss. Okay, I have a tiny reason that I’m personally excited. I will be a panelist at the afternoon party and I would love to have you join me and the others for fun conversation and prizes. Prizes! Awesome prizes every 15 minutes including UPS Store gift cards and grand prize gift baskets from Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies!

Okay, so to help you get ready for the parties, depending on which one you plan to attend, here’s everything you need to know in order to join in on the fun:

Our afternoon party is on Wednesday, October 3 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EST. Lisa Samples (@LisaSamples) and our panelists Alison Wright (@BeingAlison), Sarah Mock (@HowIPinchAPenny) and Cathy Herard (@CathyIsReal) will share recommendations for successful holiday shopping.

Join the evening party from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. EST. Money saving blogger Keri Lyn Renner (@SheSaved) and our team of panelists Amanda Acuna (@MommyMandy), Nadia Jones (@JusticeJonesie) and Kimberly Thomas (@ValleyStreamMom) will chat about creative ways to make gift-giving stress free.

I hope to see you next Wednesday afternoon. I’ll bring the birthday cupcakes!

Disclosure:  I’m being compensated for my participation as a panelist at the Twitter party, but opinions are always my own.
