Ive seen a kit at well as 2 HD staff doing it for a couple of customers.
Try them ie BigBox stores...or a locksmith can do it for you.

Depending on the brand of your locks, first determine if one (1) of your keys will slide into each keyhole. If the one key will slide in (not turn), you should be able to have all locks rekeyed to the same key.

Depending on your location, your best bet would be to take the locks off the doors and take them to a locksmiths shop to have them rekeyed there.

That will save you the service call and labor at least. Average cylinder rekeying prices vary but $20.00 per keyhole would be far too expensive in my opinion.
