Online shopping is a huge time saver, but it has its downsides, too. Like a big box with the word Samsonite sitting on your porch when you pull in the driveway after work — and your spouse’s car already in the garage.
Gee, honey, guess what you’re getting for Christmas?
UPS is using technology to solve those hiccups with its My Choice account. Trust us, you want to click here and fill out the information to get an email, voice or text alert the day before a delivery to announce its time of arrival. If that’s not convenient, you can sign in and rearrange the clock in your favor. (You can also preauthorize deliveries so anything sent via signature confirmation still reaches you quickly — no more games waiting for the man in brown to ring your doorbell.)
It’s free, so you have absolutely nothing to lose except a few minutes to fill out the forms. UPS will deliver more than 527 million packages this holiday season. Make yours a priority.
