By adding UPS My Choice to their list of must-haves, people can register for a chance to win in the “Win What You Want Sweepstakes.” 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 by Dec. 31 automatically are entered in the sweepstakes. Consumers also can enter via mail.

“UPS My Choice 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,” says Alan Gershenhorn, chief sales and marketing officer for UPS. “It’s all about consumer choice, and the ‘Win What You Want Sweepstakes’ celebrates consumer choice by enabling winners to choose their own prize packages.”

Winners will be selected randomly 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 about $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 the winner wants, 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. The Elite College Sports Package consists of tickets, airfare, lodging, ground transportation plus $2,000 in spending money (check or gift cards) for the winner and three guests to attend a top-notch collegiate athletic event such as the SEC, Pac-12 or Big Ten Football Championship, the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Championship or a key conference football or basketball game.

Twenty Second Prizes will be awarded, each with an approximate value of $8,552.
