A Storybook Ending Worth $100


I had a deadline for a client… a product review. I was anxiously waiting for my package… constantly tracking online. I have things to do. Places to go. People to see.

*tick tock tick tock*

I can’t stay at the house all day waiting for this package! And from prior experience… I know that they won’t leave my package inside the gate of my yard. I live in a rural community and my driver can’t be responsible for animal damage. Or something crazy like that. So I wait… until I can’t wait anymore and I take a chance and leave the house.

“Sorry We Missed You!”

The sunny yellow sticky note greets me… fluttering on my gate.

I had some choice words for this happy gram… especially when it happened again… the next day.

But those days are over for me my friend. I’m no longer playing the waiting game with my shipments. I’ve got a new tool on my side and I’m not afraid to use it! UPS has come out with a new product called UPS My Choice. And thus begins my storybook ending.

I got an email about my scheduled delivery. I logged into UPS My Choice and let the driver know where to leave my package in the event that I’m not around. I’m given a spiffy calendar to make changes to my delivery and see just when I’m receiving packages! I can even make the delivery time frame shorter… down to a two hour window! It can’t get much better than that.

So… I’m happily awaiting my package from Zappos… which happens to include a new travel bag, a dress, and some unmentionables. And because I’m so flippin’ happy with this revolution in deliveries… I’m going to give you a chance to win $100 from Zappos!

That’s right! I’m hosting a giveaway with $100 from Zappos to the most creative video showing me your best Storybook Ending when it comes to package deliveries. Watch this video from UPS My Choice for some storybook ending inspiration and simply leave a video response with your best delivery Storybook Ending! The most creative video will receive a $100 Zappos gift card.

How do you leave a video response? Good question! You click to leave a comment on the video… then choose “create a video response”. You can create one on the fly via webcam or you can upload your prerecorded video. I’m so excited to see your entries!

Thanks so much to UPS My Choice for compensation on this project. Compensation has no bearing on my review or use of the new UPS My Choice product. Also a big Thank you to Zappos for the gift card giveaway!

You have until July 6th to share a video with us and have a chance to win $100 from Zappos!

Let’s get creative people!
