Costco passport photo

Get a passport photo at Costco
Costco Wholesale Corporation is known not only for a wide selection of goods but also for cheap and convenient photo services. They used to be one of the most popular places to take passport photos in the U.S.: it offered the cheapest passport photos available offline, only charging $4.99 per single photo (though a Costco membership was required).

But in the beginning of 2021 Costco announced its plans to close the photo centers at all of its warehouses. Such services as passport photos, ink refills, photo restoration and YesVideo home movie transfer will no longer be available.

“Since the introduction of camera phones and social media, the need for printing photos has steeply declined, even though the number of pictures taken continues to grow," a spokesman of the corporation said. "After careful consideration, we have determined the continued decline of prints no longer requires on-site photo printing."

But Costco printing services will still remain. That means that you still can get a digital passport photo online and print it separately, saving both time and money.
