CVS Complaint - Photos should be treated equally!
BLOOMINGTON, INDIANA -- Today I had a weird and funny experience at CVS. I had bad experience with passport photos taken at places such as CVS/Walmart before, (one time I had to have the pictures taken three times for a satisfactory result), so I asked a friend, who is a very good photographer, to take an ID photo for me, and he give me a digital photo to print out and cut my self.
So I went to CVS, have it printed on Friday.
This morning, after two days, I went there to pick it up. First they couldn't find my pictures, so they had to print it again.
Then they asked me $8.99 for it. I told them that I didn't have the picture taken there, I am just printing it like any other picture. The answer I got is that it is passport picture and they are developing it, and I should pay $8.99.
What a funny logic. CVS, you don't rip people's money like that. It costs no more ink (probably less than most other pictures), no more labor to develop those photos. In fact, if you could take the passport pictures well, I'd have been happy to let you do it and give you $8.99. But you can't ask money for other people's work.
