[Walmart] Passport photos $9.97 ($3 off)

Pay online, visit Walmart photo centre to have photo taken. This $3 off deal is ending soon, this is the cheapest I have seen since Costco discontinued passport photos.

Good deal! Did mine at SDM a couple of months ago, paid more than $25.

So how does the booking of photo work?
You pay online but doesn’t give you an option to book a date. Do u just go in anytime with the receipt?
If I buy now at this price can I take the photos in February?(which is when I need it)

Also website says “ Infant photos are not available.”. What does Walmart consider an “infant”? I need to also do for 5 year old. Will they do it for $9.97?

Yes I think so, just take your e-receipt in with you. You've paid, they owe you a photo.

This sale has been on for a while. My wife took my daughter to the photo studio near the Walmart checkout and got charged 25+ dollars. I guess the price might be for service inside stores at the photo print machines instead of at the photo studios.

You can call to confirm, but I think they will do 5+ (they need to be well behaved enough to stand and follow instructions). They are valid for 6 months as per passport application requirements.

You don't have to pay online. it's the same price in store. Just go in and ask at the photo counter. They take your photos and print first and then you pay them after.

They really can't do infant photos reliably.
First of all your kid has to be able to sit up themselves. They don't have the set up to take in car seat or place your kid on a white sheet like other photos store can. Second, their passport program is automated, as in the photographer cannot actually edit the photos, it's all automated so because your kid is small, the proportions will be off and there is no way to manually crop according passport canada's guidelines. YMMV.

Yup, $9.97 in store too as per pic.

It's too bad that Walmart is automated and can't do infants.

Infants are babies. If they can't sit up on their own, they cannot take the photos. If your kid can sit on a seat, you are good.

Yeah but the $3 off deal for both ends on December 8th. The advantage of paying online is you can pay now and get the deal, and get the photo done later when the $3 off is no longer available. There's only 3 days left on the pricing deal, so online pay is handy for those who can't get there in time.

Paid $19.99 before tax both of us at Shoppers Drug Mart. The photographer was very sloppy, blurred and lowest image quality and later wife's was required retake. I don't know if I need retake too. After that I read their google reviews, it's my neighbour store, very bad google reviews and many people complain passport photos. Oh man , that's waste money and time.

For Calgary locals. There are two locations of “Passport Photo Calgary” and they charge $6.99 + tax. One location in NE and one in SW.

Tried SW location and it was not busy at all. In and out in 5 mins with the photos.

I liked their quality much better (better lighting) than my experience with either SDM or London Drugs in the past.

just a heads up,

I took advantage of this offer a few months back and the passport office didn't accept the photos. they had a slight shadow in the background (I didn't notice - they [the passport office] even tried to fix the issue themselves with their computers but couldn't do it). when the guys saw it was from Walmart he said he 'wasn't surprised'.

you get what you pay for - rings true at least in this instance.

Can Walmart provide me with a digital copy? I need to upload a photo for another government application - not a passport but I think the requirements are the same. Or any other store that can give me a digital copy?

It's criminal to charge 10 bucks for tiny passport photo, it's even worse since most places charge 14 bucks and up and this just happens to be a sale. I should be able to take my own as long as I meet the standards they're requiring.
