Ok, Mr. C - I usually do not have any problems with your posts, but this time I followed all directions exactly & getting the error message: Promotion Code is not valid (1036). I did enter my credit card number as I understand that I would be charged $10 after the promo code. Unfort. did not work for me. AND I use the UPS My Choice service MUCH. Willing to upgrade to premium, but no go for me.
UPDATE 5 minutes later: Persistent as I am, kept trying & finally got the code to take! Subscription Cost:$10.00 (discounted based on Promotion Code - Courtesy of UPS) You have successfully enrolled in a UPS My Choice® Premium Membership
The upgrade of a SurePost package to UPS ground is the best benefit. Alas, especially at this time of year, the tracking system is pretty worthless. My packages tend to get delivered before the tracking information is updated. The tracking will show the package still at a major sorting location or worse just the city where the package was accepted into the system and it will be a day or two after delivery before the true tracking information is available. But for the price it's a HOT DEAL.

https://www.ups.com/mychoice/features/ Changing delivery date is nice too. Retired and would rather have deliveries on a day I am home and not out running errands. Too many thieves, especially this time of year.
Thanks Mr.Cheap! Worked for me, but your first couple of steps with links did not, for whatever reason. So I finally figured out where to find your step 3 stuff once logged in to UPS My Choice. Here's your procedure recopied with a few changed steps (no links) that may/may not help others with this:
1. Login to your existing My UPS account or to sign up for a free My UPS account. 2. After logging in, click the Tracking tab > Access UPS My Choice. 3. On the UPS My Choice (calendar) screen, click the My Settings tab near the top. 4. Click on 'Manage Membership / Addresses' under Membership Information column on the left 5. Click 'Upgrade to Premium' for the address you wish to upgrade 6. Complete form and enter promotion code BY5AY1MM7 in the space provided, then click 'Apply Promotion Code'. Total will be $40 - $30 off w/ promotion code = $10
NOTE: When on the My Settings tab of the UPS My Choice screen, you may find a few other links helpful: - Add First Name Variations (e.g. Bob in addition to Robert, and so on) - Add Household Members (spouse, children, and so on). This allows the tracking of more possible packages to the same address...sweet!

Allows you to control your packages being delivered. Very valuable time saver. Plus, it helps you control any porch pirates that may get tempted to swipe your goods. No one has time to deal with all that nonsense with the merchant.
fabric2000 said: I still can't understand why anyone would pay extra. your package is coming no matter what . your package is scheduled to be delivered on monday. you know you will be at home on friday. UPS will attempt to deliver three times (monday, tuesday, wednesday) and then you have to go pick up the package from the ups depot.
OR you can find a coupon code and sign up for My UPS and schedule the delivery at your convenience. OR you can redirect the delivery to your office instead of having to wait.
you may not find these features useful. others do. your understanding of this doesn't figure into things.
This is great, the calendar view of scheduled deliveries is totally awesome. I chose not to automatically upgrade all of my SurePost packages at this point, as my UPS guy comes really late in the day (often around 7pm) and my mailman comes really early... it would be a day earlier, but with Christmas coming the earlier deliveries should allow me to grab the packages before the wife sees them. For now if it's not a surprise gift I will just manually upgrade the individual package when needed - as I absolutely hate the slowness of SurePost!
I initially added the wife as a household member to track/upgrade, but then I decided to remove her because I may ruin one of my own surprise gifts. Sometimes she tells me not to look at the package that comes on a certain day - and if I'm tracking her then I'll get email updates with the shipper's name. Just giving you some things to consider with Christmas coming up.
