    Lightbulb UPS MyChoice details for those interested in getting your PS4 ASAP Friday

    I know some of you were interested in using UPS' Mychoice service to choose when you get your PS4. Well, it seems that the options are pretty limited. I was not able to actually schedule a delivery time like I thought I would unless I wasn't looking in the right spot, but I used my BF4 tracking # to see all the options available and scheduling a delivery wasn't present. You can have your shipment sent to a UPS store for $5, though you don't get a guaranteed time as to when it will be available for pick up. It could be early, or it could be around the time your normal UPS guy runs in your area. The best option available, and it's the one I guess I'm gonna do, is the option where they hold it at the distribution center and I pick it up at 8am.

    Now there are other options, but it's more along the lines of rescheduling your delivery, send the package to a neighbor's house, etc. Nothing that really gives you the advantage of getting your package early in the morning. Since I have the whole day off Friday, I'm just gonna bite the bullet and drive an hour each way to the distribution center so I can be home around 10am to fire my PS4 up. If any of you have used the service before and there IS a way to schedule a delivery, by all means post the instructions but I could not the option. Hope this helps someone.

    If I wanted to pick it up at the distribution center, do I have to call the dis. cen. before it gets there to schedule it?

    Sign up for mychoice ups and you can do all that online. If you don't wanna register, it can't hurt to call CS with your tracking number and have them do it manually in the system.

    Im on my UPS choice. I think you have to be a premium member for the delivery time schedule.. I would love to get in sent to a center because i wont be home from 12-4 and i just know they will try to delivery it then. I just called the CS and they said the easier thing to do is get it held at the Distribution center for pick up. Ill call thursday morning as soon as i get my tracking number. I guess I'm missing class

    Once the tracking number is in the system you can simply go to the UPS site and have it held at the distribution center. I've done this a number of times in the past as my UPS distribution center is only a couple miles from work.

    I haven't decide which route I'm taking. I know I'm going to work from home that day, but I may end up having it held and drive in and pick it up in the morning and start installing it as I don't know when they'll be by my house.
