    Register for a Chance to "Win What You Want" In UPS Sweepstakes

    If you love to shop, work from home or expect to receive more than your fair share of packages this holiday season, add UPS My Choice to your list of must-haves and register for a chance to win in the Win What You Want Sweepstakes sponsored by UPS (NYSE: UPS).

    UPS is awarding prizes to 25 lucky winners. The prizes have a maximum total retail value of about $238,996. Consumers registering for UPS My Choice between Sept. 14, 2011, and Dec. 31, 2011, are automatically entered in the sweepstakes. Consumers can also enter via mail.

    "UPS My Choice is a first-of-its-kind service that arms the consumer with the ability to know when a package is coming and then to control the time and location of the home delivery before the first delivery attempt is even made," said Alan Gershenhorn, chief sales and marketing officer for UPS. "It's all about consumer choice and the Win What You Want Sweepstakescelebrates consumer choice by enabling winners to choose their own prize packages."

    Winners will be randomly selected during a drawing conducted on or about Jan. 20, 2012, by an independent judging organization, D.L. Blair, Inc. Each winner will choose one prize package from a specified list of events, including a 2012 Live Nation Concert, a NASCAR race, a NCAA game or a PGA European Tour event.
    The prize packages are layered in three tiers – Grand, First and Second. Two Grand Prize winners will be selected and each will win what they want from prize packages ranging in value from approximately $8,552 to $15,300. For example, an available Grand Prize package includes tickets for the winner plus three guests to attend the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship, round-trip air fare, lodging, ground transportation to and from the airport along with $2,000 (check or gift cards) in spending money!

    If golf is what you want, a Grand Prize winner could select the PGA European Tour package, which includes tickets for two, round-trip air fare, lodging, ground transportation to and from the airport plus $2,000 (check or gift cards) in spending money to one of the following events: Open de Espana, BMW Championship, Portugal Masters, HSBC Championship, Singapore Open or the Hong Kong Open.

    Three First Prize winners will be selected and given their choice from Elite College Sports, NASCAR, NCAA or Live Nation prize packages.
