CVS Pharmacy — photo processing overcharging!
My wife bought a 'one-time use' CVS brand digital camera for our son just prior to this past Christmas holiday. The price was $19.95 plus 6% sales tax for a total of $21.20. The price did not include the cost of processing but the signs on the wall behind the photo counter indicated that the price was $.25 per print. The camera shot 25 pictures so the cost of processing should have been $6.25 plus 6% sales tax for a total of $6.63, give or take. When I picked up the pictures, I was told the price was $12.99 plus 6% sales tax - a total of $13.77! This was more than twice the advertised price! This price was posted nowhere on the camera package or on the sign age within the photo counter area. We paid a total of $34.97 for 25 prints (plus, according to the store, a 'free' photo CD). Just to drive home the point, that was $34.97 for 25 photo prints!!! To me, this represents a major ripoff for the unsuspecting who believe the prices posted on the walls behind the counter are the actual prices you pay. This was my last visit to CVS -EVER! And I will make sure I post this on every available website I can find and tell everyone I come within earshot of.
