UPS My Choice – FREE program that emails you about packages!

I signed up for UPS My Choice this last spring and I LOVE it. I don’t have enough good things to say about it. When I order something from Amazon or I’m expecting a package from an online retailer I get a short email from UPS My Choice when something ships that tells me “Hey, you’re getting a package from Amazon (or whoever) and you should expect it by the end of business day Thursday, August 16. Click here to track it!”

I love how easy it is and I find it helpful to know when a package is coming, so I can either watch for it or tell my neighbor, if I’ll be away for the day. It’s completely FREE to sign up and it requires no input from me – it just emails me when it knows a package is headed my way.

You can also do fancy stuff like electronically authorize packages for drop-of, re-route to other locations and many other helpful things if you’re on the go a lot. Text messages, instead of email updates, are also an option.

And for those of you who enter sweepstakes it’s always fun to get a little “heads up” that you’re getting a package in the mail!

  • Sign up is super easy. Just head over to UPS My Choice and create an account
  • You’ll just need to enter your name, address and valid email to sign up

Have you signed up for UPS My Choice? Do you like it as much as I do! If you haven’t sign up and you have questions – I’d love to answer them!

This post is sponsored content, but all opinions are mine – I love UPS My Choice and I love getting mail. :)

Tillamook cheese coupon – $1 off any sliced Tillamook cheese (HURRY!)

This coupon is still available! 

Yowza! Head over here and print a coupon for $1 off any sliced TIllamook cheese (scroll all the way to bottom and enter your info to print). This is a rare coupon. I just printed and it is valid for a month – expiring September 5, 2012.

We should see sales on this in late August for “sandwiches” and other back-to-school friendly meals!

Have you been to the Tillamook cheese factory? It’s a fun place to visit. The last time we drove by on our way to Newport, we had planned to stop. . .but this was the scene in our backseat. So we quietly kept driving. Maybe next time!

Fred Meyer Deals August 12 – 18 – Chicken Breasts $1.49/lb, Cherries $1.48/lb, and Friends & Family Savings event continues

deals-matchup

Today (August 15) is the last day for the Friends & Family pass discount! 

Here are your Fed Meyer deals for the week of August 12 through August 18. There are quite a few deals to be found this week, although the key to extra savings seems to be shopping early. Split chicken breasts look like a great deal at $1.49/lb and cantaloupe is only $0.48/lb.  I’m excited about some of the sales prices on store brand items this week and I think you will be too.

Did you catch the post about the Fred Meyer Friends & Family Savings Pass last week? Well, you can continue to save like an associate through Wednesday August 15 and that makes a few of this week’s deals even better. You only need to print one copy of the pass (unless you still have yours handy – you can continue to reuse it!) and it’ll apply to all the deals it’s listed on below. Clearance apparel is still marked down an extra 50% and pairs nicely with the additional 20% off you get when using the savings pass. I would suggest taking a peek everywhere. Just don’t forget to get down there early this week, because the prices listed using the Friends & Family pass are only good through Wednesday.

Make sure and check out your local Fred Meyer ad to get the full list of deals at your store. Check out all of the great Fred Meyer e-coupons currently available, I recommend uploading those to your shopper card – just in case you find a good deal!
