Everyone loves saving money at Costco by buying in bulk, but there are other services you may be skipping over. One of those services is the Photo Center.
Although you may not need entire rolls of film developed anymore, the Photo Center is worth a visit. Especially if you have old VHS tapes, slides or photos that you'd like to put on a DVD.
Costco offers a digital transfer service through its Photo Center. You can transfer several types of videotapes to DVDs. VHS and S-VHS, Beta, VHS-C, Hi8, Digital 8, 8mm and MiniDV are all acceptable formats.
The package includes two personalized DVDs with intelligent chapters, personalized themes, custom music and highlight videos. Each transfer begins at $19.99 and each DVD can hold up to two hours of video. If the footage on your tape exceeds the two-hour limit, the content will be split onto two DVDs and you'll be charged as if you'd placed two separate orders.
You can place your order using Costco's website and drop off your tapes at your local store. When your DVDs are ready, simply pick them up and take them back home to enjoy. Just make sure the footage you provide them is not copyrighted material.
Every transfer you make also comes with your own private online account at no extra cost. Through this account, you'll be able to view all of your transferred videos from any computer or device. You can even share them with friends and family through email or Facebook.
Costco's digital transfer service is not limited to videotapes. You can also transfer film reels, 35mm slides, photo prints and memory cards to DVDs.
