Join the Push to 1 Million Users and You May Win Dream Vacation

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 Membership.

"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.

The Grand Prize winner and a companion can travel anywhere in the world. The package includes First Class airfare, lodging and ground airport transfers plus $5,000 for meals, excursions and souvenirs. The total prize value is $35,000.

A First Prize winner can select a destination anywhere within the 50 United States. The trip includes First Class airfare, hotel accommodations and $2,500 in spending money. That total prize value is $15,000.

Winners will be randomly selected during a drawing on or around May 14, 2012, by the independent judging organization D.L. Blair, Inc.

To register for UPS My Choice or for more information about the UPS My Choice Destination of Choice Sweepstakes, including prize descriptions, odds statement and details for mail-in entry, visit http://www.ups.com/MyChoice/PR. No purchase necessary to enter or win. Open only to residents, age 18 or older, of the United States and Washington, D.C. Sweepstakes ends on May 1, 2012.
