I wanted to highlight this great program especially since it’s summer and a lot of people are going to be on vacations. UPS My Choice is great for when you are out of town or just aren’t going to be home when your packages arrive. It’s completely free and easy.
All you have to do is sign up and pick the delivery features you like. You will get an email, text message, or voice message (your choice) the day before your package will arrive. This allows you to reschedule the delivery if you are not going to be home and your packge won’t be sitting outside all day. You can also reroute, authorize a shipment release, and even track your packages through your account. I love getting their emails saying I have a package coming that I wasn’t expecting, like when I win giveaways, and it lets me plan accordingly.
