Walgreens Photo Puzzle vs Pix on Puzzles

It's the 2022 holiday season and you've decided to get the family a custom photo puzzle. But where should you get it from? There are so many different custom puzzle companies to shop at, but only a few of them actually deliver a quality custom photo puzzle. Today we will be comparing Pix on Puzzles vs Walgreens photo puzzles and taking a look at the pros and cons of both of their personalized puzzle options.

Walgreens Custom Photo Puzzle

Walgreens offers their customers a custom photo puzzle that provides convenience and speed of delivery, while sacrificing quality and variation. The personalized puzzle from Walgreens has had mixed reviews with some customers even taking to the internet to voice their opinions. 

I did an online purchase for three photo puzzles. Was told would be ready next day at 8:55am. They were not. Got an email at 2:14pm they were ready. Purchased online for curbside pickup at 5:31pm. Was told would get an email in 30 minutes for pickup. I did not and called twice. Both times they could not hear anything and hung up. Went to and in store. Showed Lee the manager my receipt. She said there was a glitch. They haven’t seen the payment. She could not give me my order which was there sitting on the counter. I even showed her my receipt of payment. Being frustrated I walked off. She yelled across the floor “have a nice evening”. I turned and asked “Are you saying It won’t be ready tonight?“ She yelled “not unless you pay for it”. With others watching the exchange I replied “I already did”. Over three hours and I’m still waiting on that email to go get my curbside.
