UPS (NYSE:UPS) is celebrating a subscription milestone with its new UPS
My Choice? service by launching a sweepstakes that could provide
the winner a free vacation anywhere in the world.
Almost 1 million consumers have signed up for UPS My Choice in the five
months since its launch in early October. That significantly exceeds
original predictions and demonstrates anew the attractiveness of
technology when it makes the lives of consumers easier.
With UPS My Choice, consumers can schedule their residential deliveries
and avoid those "sorry we missed you" notices left on doors. There are
two levels of membership, including a basic free version. Registered
members receive a free phone, e-mail or text message the day before a
package arrives. If the initial delivery time doesn't work, there are
options to reschedule or reroute the package for a small fee. There's
also the ability to go online and release packages requiring a
signature. Even more control is available with an annual $40 Premium
"It's not surprising so many people are taking advantage of UPS My
Choice," says Jenny Martin, a blogger at SouthernSavers.com. "You can
control your deliveries when it's convenient, and not having to worry
about missing a package is a huge relief."
Consumers who sign up for either level of membership through May 1,
2012, will automatically be entered in the UPS My Choice?
"Destination of Choice" Sweepstakes and have the opportunity to win
a vacation to the destination of their dreams. Register at http://www.ups.com/MyChoice/PR.
Consumers also can enter via mail.

airport transfers plus $5,000 for meals, excursions and souvenirs. The
