Before we begin let me make a few things clear... 1) This thread is about the SEND OUT SERVICE only. 2) The send out service for developing is NOT done by Walmart. It is like using a developing mailer except you do not have to pay for postage and it is cheaper. I repeat no one at Walmart touches your film except to transport it in a sealed envelope to and from the actual party that develops the film. 3) Refrain from talking to anyone at Walmart either on the phone or in person. Talking to the denizens of Wally World is how misinformation spreads. If someone hasn't gone in and personally used the send out service then what they have to say is worse than useless. Okay now that I have that out of the way... After the FALSE rumor that Walmart doesn't give back negatives got started I made my way down to Wally World and did my own personal test. If you have doubts try a test of your own with an expired roll of film and see how things work at your local Wally World. I of course can only speak about Walmarts I've actually used. At this time I can tell you with zero uncertainty that Walmart does routinely return negatives... at least at the two Walmarts I've checked in the last two weeks. I did NOT notice any change in the send out envelopes. They look exactly as they've always looked. Here is an example... Now I don't develop 35mm C-41 film at Walmart. I do that at Sam's Club which is a bit more dicey because they do it on location, so you have to be sure your Sam's film developer is competent. Anyway back to Walmart. I use the send out service for 35mm E-6 and all my 120/220 processing needs. I believe E-6 processing for everything is about $5-6. Yes that includes 220 Velvia. They do not gouge. 120 C-41 film can be developed for as little as $0.83. Yes you read that right. Here is one of my latest Portra processing orders... I just ordered some Portra 220 and I'm going to give that a try with this service. So how is the quality? Excellent. No dust, hair, or scratches. The film came back cut and individually sleeved. The slide film either came back mounted in cardboard (35mm) or in a long uncut sleeved roll (120/220). My humble advice to everyone is to put aside your preconceived notions and give the send out service a try. Send one test roll of film and YOU be the judge. If you are sending E-6 or 120/220 film ignore all the stuff in the blue area of the forum. Go to the SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS section in the lower left hand corner. In that space write something like E-6 developing only, no prints, no CD. Or write C-41 220 film processing only, no prints, no CD. With 35mm E-6 film be sure to indicate mounted or unmounted. A neat trick I learned is if you grab a bunch of the envelops from your home Walmart you can drop your film off at other Walmarts and it finds its way home. It is not visible on my scanned example but all the envelops have the address of the Walmart they are to return to printed on them. So presumably you could drop off an envelope for a Walmart in New York in Seattle and it will find its way back to you. I have not tried it over a distance that long. But I have certainly gone to the next state over and had my developed film pop up in the Walmart near me a couple of weeks later. Anyway, if any of you discover any changes to the Walmart send out service please keep us apprised. Now when I say "discover" I mean you personally going in and trying it out and getting different results. I don't mean calling in to a random Walmart and talking to a clueless person and parroting that conversation on the internet. Also if you see different mailers take a picture of them and post so we can know what to be on the look out for. I've heard rumors of at least one different mailer but I have never seen a picture of one. Take pictures people. This is a picture of the send out service kiosk where you can pick up and drop off mailers. Notice it says nothing about "no negatives returned." I took this two weeks ago.
