UPS announced the launch of its UPS My Choice Deals site offering retailers an exclusive platform to reach more than 43m UPS My Choice members with special deals and discounts.

The UPS My Choice Deals site, which is the first non-shipping perk for UPS My Choice members, offers access to more than 500 special offers ranging from shopping discounts to cash back on eligible purchases.

“Online shoppers love to find a great deal and retailers want to provide distinctive offers. The UPS My Choice Deals site helps connect retailers and shoppers by providing a platform for great deals through a convenient member-exclusive marketplace,” said Jerome Roberts, UPS’s vice president of global product innovation. “Retailers benefit from access to the UPS My Choice membership base, including loyal, savvy online shoppers and coveted new customers. It can be a great tool to drive engagement and sales.”

Since its introduction in 2011, UPS My Choice has quickly gained traction with shippers and consumers because it allows members to customize their deliveries to fit their specific needs. Consumers can receive estimated arrival and progress alerts, sign for a package in advance, set vacation holds or change a delivery address to their workplace, a neighbour’s home or a nearby UPS Access Point location. Members can also provide instructions for their UPS driver on where to leave their packages such as the back porch or side of the garage.

To date, UPS My Choice has been used to deliver more than 1bn packages.
