We had passport photos taken at Walgreens’s. Cost for one person was just short of $20! Anyone know where to get a bargain?
A AAA Plus membership gets you one set (two pics) free every 12 months (it does not go by calendar year).

Costco... took pic, grabbed and ate my hot dog combo, go back to pickup pics.
Thanks for this info! I didn't know Costco did this but got mine there last week. Why 4 photos though?

Anyways, paid $4.99. Ate the hot dog combo and returned 20 minutes later for pick-up. Super easy and could even make a quick exit out the entrance door. :beer

It’s cheap enough at Walmart but I used a free iOS app (id photoprint). It was easy and I liked that I could experiment and get a shot that I was happy with before printing at Walgreens. The prints cost less than a buck, iirc. Did it for my wife’s passport photo as well. All worked out fine. I don’t see the app on the App Store any longer but lots of other free ones there.

Very timely post as I have to renew my kids' passports. Coworker said to go the DIY route... after reading this, I'll do the Costco route like before. With 3 kids to renew, I'd be more comfortable knowing that the pics will be done right this way. Too bad the kids are not really in to the hot dogs anymore... will have to splurge on the pizza and sundaes while waiting :D

I've done DIY for my and my wife's passports and the kids 2x over the past 5 years and had no issues.
