Quicker than the ocean county mall?
It's the same system, so whatever is more convenient for you to get to.
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

Not necessarily. I had good experiences in both places. IIRC, the hours at the mall may be more convenient.

Lakewood Passport office you can walk in and fill out the paperwork and you should get it within a few weeks.

Philly if you have a flight within a certain number of days. You get it on the spot but may be a wait in line.

OR, pay the frum places a lot of $$$ and probably all they do is go down to Philly for you and charge you a hefty 'rush/convenience' fee.

you can get it on the spot if you have a flight within 24-48 hours in phili. took me about 6 hours total.

Their service used to be much better before it was sold
