UPS sales guy here. For those of you having trouble adding these discounts- it's because you are on a different discount plan or signed bid (especially if you went through a 3rd party like ebay or Amazon to get your UPS account).
If you belong to an association or get ebay/Amazon discounts, you would have to call (800) 325-7000 to get your existing discount plan (bid) off before adding the UPS Connect plan. If you got your discounts through an account manager, you would have to call him/her to cancel your existing discounts. Most likely, your existing discounts are better than UPS Connect discounts but it doesn't include the free pickup option
FAQ #1:What is the difference between This (UPS Connect offer) and UPS Mychoice?
UPS Mychoice is all about packages being delivered to the "address" signed up. There is no UPS account number involved. Other than delivery notifications (Free), it provides you options to specify the delivery window, reschedule delivery redirect delivery etc. If you have Mychoice premium most of the mychoice services are free.
UPS Connect is all about shipping. This promotion needs a 6 digit UPS account number that you create during signup or use the exising one. Using existing account could cause conflict (see wiki).
FAQ#2: What is UPS smart pickup?
UPS regular pickup option cost you money (up to $22 a week) since driver comes to door everyday whether you have the package or not
UPS smart pickup works differently. When the signed up account creates a shipping label using ups.com or worldship etc, then UPS gets notified and they come and pickup the package.
Note: Smart pickup has a fee of $10/week, you are getting it free for one year.
