I've mentioned this service before but I wanted to revisit it. UPS offers a free service for you to get notifications of package deliveries. It is called UPS My Choice. This service will send you an email letting you know that you have a package on the way, the estimated delivery date, and a 4-hour window of when it should be delivered.
As I enter a lot of sweepstakes and giveaways, I don't always know that I have things coming. This service gives me a heads up and lets me know to be on the lookout. If you live in an apartment complex, the service will also let you know if they left your package at the office in case you weren't home.
Head on over to UPS My Choice and sign up for this convenient service. It's free!!
