At least you got the right price there. (If you don't consider the door
fee).  $10 is a bit pricey for s simple fan if you do not need the
flashy LEDs (But they sell a lot that way!).

I have found fans new online for about $3 - $5 as a normal price.
Surplus Computers is one place I
usually check, also Price Watch
You usually can find almost anything for a price you can afford if you
look long enough and are willing to wait a few days to receive it.

I just checked Price Watch while writing this, and found fan prices
generally from $1 to $35 and these include case fans as well as cpu
fans. Interestingly enough they also have the LED fans as low as $3
(They had a few CPU coolers for higher prices as well.)

I realize this is not in Wichita, and shipping is often not included,
but the price differences may be worth the wait for most people.
