I've seen their price list at stores in Central Illinois. Before they put this out, I had switched to a small chain store (6 or 8 stores total) for my E-6 because they turned it around faster and it was worth it to me to pay a few extra bucks to get my slides back quicker. I get develop and mount + scans (and they don't charge extra for pushing film!) for $11.88, tax included. Judging from this price list, I would be paying almost as much through Walmart for just develop and mount!
Well I have to say the ONLY thing they are good at is chemistry control, and printing from digital files you have color corrected yourself. That's it... NEVER have them scan images or print film ... they are just awful at it... truly I agree... just like I couldn't even describe how bad... haha
I've been to the lab, I've seen them, they are quite specific about the chemistry work they do, and the printing itself from files you send in with the MeridianPro software which is them...), but the rest, don't bother.
Well here's one example... I am still looking for the one I found that said .88 cents but he literally posted his receipt image so it wasn't even made up .... but here's another one that's close... (EDIT at sams club) last post...
Oh here... this APUG guy said .84 cents...
Who knows... its certainly not my walmart.... lol
However, that is what walmart does. Undercut the competition until it is gone, then raise prices. I beleive they sometimes thin out thier own stores in a region once enough competition is gone - so people then have to travel further.
fuji and dwaynes told me
120 film they WILL return with the prints
and if you plan on paying the lowest price ...
you have to REFUSE THE PRINTS
because they have no process only service.
