Costco is Moving Online Photo Services to Shutterfly–What that Means for You

Have you heard that Costco is shutting down its online photo service and transferring customers to Shutterfly? The deadline is Jan. 31, 2024 and on Feb 1. 2024 CostCo will delete all photos.

Let me know if you’re affected by this news in the photo storage industry.

Please share this blog with family and friends who may be affected. I’ll be glad to guide you and them through a virtual tour of the platform I use personally and as a photo coach with my clients—FOREVER®.

FOREVER® is truly permanent photo storage, guaranteed.
