UPS My Choice Overview


UPS My Choice is a free service that gives consumers more control over their residential deliveries. UPS My Choice members can receive an email or text message the day before a shipment arrives. If they won’t be home, they can re-route most packages to their workplace, a neighbor’s home or a nearby UPS Access Point™ location. Members can also provide instructions for their UPS driver to leave their deliveries at places such as their home’s back porch or side of the garage. Most delivery alerts include an estimated delivery window, and for a small fee, UPS can also provide a 2-hour confirmed delivery window*. A small fee also applies to certain delivery changes.*

The UPS My Choice service is available in multiple languages in 14 countries and Puerto Rico:  Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.S.

UPS My Choice has two membership levels: UPS My Choice Member and UPS My Choice Premium Member. Members can receive delivery alerts, electronically release packages, and select delivery options (e.g., rerouting a package for delivery) for free. UPS My Choice Premium members pay a $40 annual subscription fee to also receive unlimited free deliveries to another address, unlimited free deliveries on another day, and unlimited free UPS SurePost upgrades. The Premium services are available to Members on a per transaction basis.*
