$1.50

I was just waiting to pickup my online order at Sears store, found a Key Duplication Kiosk there, a guy is duplicating his key, I have asked how much does it cost, he has replied, standard is $3 but if you stick your original key in and then cancel the transaction, they will pop up a 50% off code which you can apply right there. Effectively I got a brass key for $1.5. I guess its a good idea to make a duplicate key(home/car etc) and keep it with your friend's home near, so that it could be handy at times.

Update: Its not a must to look for Sears. There are many places where you can find these kiosks . You can search their site with your zip code here:

None near me, but seems KMart and Rite-Aid have a lot in the general area.

Just a heads up this is location specific and a majority of Sears stores do not have this machine.

You can search on their site for a kiosk near to you (not necessarily Sears)

looks like their primary locations are at the heart of major cities.

they keep the fingerprints of your keys on your account so that you can share with friends, but if they have your address where those keys go then that could be a risk if anything ever happened to their data.

From what I read, it's your fingerprints. Not the image of the key.

Kmart has these. Have used them maybe 5-6 times, all different keys. The copies made worked about 50% of the time. Wasn't worth the effort. I'd rather get them made at a place that I can easily bring them back in and get another copy made or get a refund on the spot.

This.

And furthermore, I will only allow the absolute minimum number of folks (my DMV, the PD/courthouse/birth certificate) to possess my fingerprints so they can perhaps one day... frame me for some crime of their choosing (theft, rape, murder, etc).

Thanks anyway, OP. Reps for the effort. I'll stick to Lowe's/Home Depot.

They want my fingerprints? Not a chance. Story: I was at Menard's buying a new lock and getting it keyed (five bucks) when a fellow wanted to get a key made. Then I learned that Menard's had ditched their customer service key machine and there was now this horribly expensive looking machine to do the same (?) service. You insert your key into a slot and the machine scans it. Insert two dollars (or more) into the vending slot. The machines chooses the blank and cuts it while you watch through a small window. Then it drops your new key into the hopper.

So some dumbass manager thought that replacing a many hundred dollar cutter with a many thousand dollar machine makes sense?! Yes, the stupid machine will save many minutes per day of employee time. But maybe you forgot that "customer service" activities, including key cutting, might be seen by customers as a benefit that increases goodwill?
