Has anyone else discovered the convenience of UPS My Choice?
Sign up for free at www.ups.com.. They email me a "UPS Delivery Alert" with the tracking number, the name of the shipper, the delivery commitment time (the latest time it will be here), and the UPS service (usually ground shipping). This arrives one or two days before the delivery date.
There is also info on how to request a delivery change (e.g. reschedule or reroute) from the tracking detail shown.
Then, within a couple of hours after delivery, is made I receive a delivery confirmation showing the tracking number, shipper, date and time of the delivery, and where the parcel was left ("porch," generally, for me).
I've found this free UPS feature to be very useful, especially in the last month when I've had a couple of dozen parcels being delivered.
